    For this achievement, you have to detach every detachable security camera in the game by shooting a portal behind them.

    Here are all the locations (scroll down a bit):

    And the attached video will help as well.

    If you happen to miss one along the way, reload a previous save point. If you can't go back and get a camera, sorry, but you'll have to start all over as this must be done in one playthrough.

    Credit for the complete camera list goes to both laundryman (Gamertag: Laundry x360a) and

    Epsilon ThetaI'd rather have had a textual solution with a neat list to go through.

    Epsilon ThetaAlso, the guide is missing a camera and linking further. I recommend writing your own list.

    Mack StardustFor some reason I can’t make saves while playing this through back compat on Xbox One, which means I’d unintentionally have to do a no-death run if I wanted it. Gonna have to bust out the 360 for this.
