    In Episode 1, in the Citadel core there are 2 stalkers. They fire a laser at the energy ball receptacles, resetting them. All you need to to get the achievement is not kill them for your convenience. Sounds easy right? Well, it actually is.

    Generally, at any given point in the room only 2 receptacles are within your view. You need these two to activate the bridges between the islands. Once you know your targets, quickly grab an energy ball and fire it into a receptacle and then quickly grab another and fire it into the other one. Now dash across the bridge.

    The stalkers will ignore you there, so no worries about your safety. Repeat as needed.

    Please note that these are the only 2 you don't have to kill at all. The rest you can go nuts on.

    DL CyberSkullDid you touch it or do anything provocative? They never attacked me as far as I recall for this section.

    DrumstiknikDoes anyone if the invicibility cheat affects the pop? I know it doesn't in HL2 but I wasn't sure about the episodes.

    Odog1234The invincibility cheat shouldn't affect anything

    Fragger from the Achievement shows us how to get the "Pacifist" achievement for half-life 2 episode 1. This achievement is not as hard as it sounds.

    (FYI-Fragger from owns this video)

    (before you give me a "thumbs down" on this or any other solution. Tell what I can do to fix it)

    MakkerI missed this and had to replay. I definitely didn't kill a stalker on purpose so my advise is every time you go through the central room, check that there are still 2 stalkers wandering around. A badly aimed energy sphere will rebound and kill a stalker without your knowledge.

    InugamiTheHoundYup that is true.

    (ps-don't forget to check out my other solutions)
