Tricky Achievement


(Must Get Through 3 Missions Without Anyone Alerted To Your Presence)

Does Difficulty Affect Achievement? Possibly (Play Easy Just To Be Safe)

Whilst Playing On Hard You Can Get Yellow Arrows But Be Careful!!!!
Background? Veteran (Much Easier With This Background As You Have More Skill Points To Allocate)

Making Life Easier


-Stealther Armour
-Silencer On Pistol
-Tranquiliser Bullets (Careful You May Not Take Them Out Instantly)
-Lower Noise Bullets
-Stock Up On EMP Grenades (Saves Hacking/Unlocking Anything)
-Shock Traps (May Be Attract Attention And Difficult To Use)


-Stealth (Obviously)
[Important: Awareness (Master)/Shadow Operative]
[Binary Invisibility]

Sabotage: Fill 2 or even 3 gadget slots with EMP. yes, that is 4-6 emp, so you don't have to risk hacking stuff and you can use while in shadow operative. Thanks to Alita360
Skills Method

-Awareness (Red Arrows - No, Yellow Arrows - Yes (But Be Careful) , Blue/Green Arrows - Yes [Aim For All Blue/Green Arrows To Be Safe])
-Shadow Operative (Probably The Best At Doing This Is To Activate Skill, Walk Around, Hide Before It Fades, Wait For Skill To Regenerate, Repeat...) [You Can Walk Infront Of Someone And They Will Not See You]
-Binary Invisibility (Stops Cameras Setting Off Alarms When Spotted)

Other Methods

-Level Up Your Character So You Can Upgrade Stealth & Sabotage Skills More Before Attempting The Missions Below
[Go To Different Cities Doing Missions Other Than The Ones Below, Collect Stuff Etc To Gain Experience]
-Perks (Aim For Stealth Perks Like Reduced Range Of Enemies/Noise Reduction)
-Patience & Knowing Your Surroundings (Play The Mission Through Beforehand To Know Enemy Patterns & Where Cameras Are Located)

Other Helpful Tips

-Checkpoint System (If You Get Spotted Reload Previous Checkpoint, No Need To Restart Mission)
-If Someone Is Shooting At You, An Alarm Goes Off Restart Check Point
-Try Not To Kill Anyone (Only Last Resort & Use Tranquiliser Bullets)
-If You Take Someone Down (CQC) Don't Press A (Kills Them) Press B

I Would Avoid Taking Down/Shooting Anyone. They May Notice You Without You Realising As The Yellow/Red Arrow May Appear Then Disappear Quickly. Plus Other Guards May Become Suspicious At Finding Bodies Lying On The Ground
-If You Want To Complete The Mission Quicker Go For The Main Objective & Ignore The Side Objectives
-Missions Can Be Made So Much Easier By Buying Help/Intel In The Clearinghouse Before You Start The Mission

Where? (Missions Without Alert Triggers)


-Bugging The Airbase
-Nasri Mission (Very Tricky Defeating Nasris Guards Before Meeting Nasri Without Alerting Them)
[This Can Be Tricky Early On As You Are Lower In Level]


-CIA Listening Post (Be careful With The Ventilation System, It May Make The Guards Suspicious)


-Molotek Warehouse (Must Make Sure To Agree With Surkov When You Get To Him)
[Prerequisite: Meet Surkov After The Embassy In His Office & Do Not Kill Brayko Instantly Without Interrogating Him About Surkov Beforehand]


-G22 Warehouse

Unseen Presence Perk (You Completed 5 Missions Wherein You Killed Less Than 5 Enemies, And No Alarms Were Raised) This May Pop Up And You May Not Still Have The Achievement. This Is Not A Glitch....You Probably Have Alerted Guards To Your Presence, With No Alarms Raised. But Killed Less Than 5
Good Luck!!!
