    Like "A Moral Victory" (Finish the game with no kills or knockouts), this achievement will come naturally if you use the recommended settings for:
    THIEFSomething to ProveThe Something to Prove achievement in THIEF worth 554 pointsFinish the game with a custom difficulty of 700 points or more

    Or if you just turn on "No Focus" in the custom difficulty screen when you're starting a new game. This setting literally disables focus so that it cannot be used, so you'll get this achievement if you can just finish the game with this setting on.

    If you are playing without this setting enabled and accidentally use focus, you should be able to reload your checkpoint as long as it's before your focus use. That's according to reports, I cannot personally verify that.

    deutschZuidThis only says 'finish the last chapter'. Can I not replay the chapter and refrain from using focus even if I have used focus throughout the whole game?

    PuckJunkieIt's not "finish the last chapter," it's "reach the final chapter." You have to play through the entire game without using focus until Chapter 8 starts. This achievement will unlock when Chapter 8 begins.

    PuckJunkieI haven't heard of any issues, but that doesn't mean there aren't any. If you plan on getting the full 1000, though, you don't need to worry. On your Master 700+ run, you will be forced to get this achievement, assuming you use the "No Focus" setting to help you get to 700 points.
