Chapter Missions have 4 optional Objectives, one for each three playstyles (see below for details) and one for collecting all the loot on the level.

You can only get credit for 2 of the 4
***edit see spoiler below***

- Some people say that this is not true and that you can get all 4.
This is partially correct, you can complete the requirements for all 4 objectives but at the end of the chapter the playstyle you used the most (has the biggest portion on the pie graph) is what you will decide which objective you get credit for, whether you completed that objective or not is irrelevant.
*I cannot stress this enough - Your playstyle is what determines which objective you can unlock.

-There are 8 Chapters which gives a max of 16 completed objectives. (You will need to do the Client Missions to get to 25)

-If you replay a level the objectives you completed for that level will be reset including "Lift all loot items" So USE WITH CAUTION!
***Correction*** (see spoiler)
*** Spoiler - click to reveal ***

Client Job's also have 4 objectives available* - THEY ARE ALL OBTAINABLE, if you meet the requirements of course. However, there are some objectives that contradict one another.
--Example - Vittiori Client Job 2 had objectives for, no kills/knockouts and 1 aerial takedown.
* - the final Ector Client Job only has one available

There is a total of 6 Client Jobs which are unlocked gradually as you play through the story - they are all available after Chapter 6.

6 Jobs - 5 with 4 objectives and 1 with 1 objective - 21 available objectives
--Lots of leeway for this achievement so don't worry about having to find all the loot for every level, unless you want to of course :)


Ghost - "You tried to leave no trace of your presence or raise any alarms."
- for this playstyle you will want to leave the level practically untouched. Leave light sources on, find alternate routes rather than picking locks, close doors behind you, leave guards alone, and do not get spotted.

Opportunist - "You preferred using the environment to your advantage over all other means."
- for this playstyle you will want to extinguish flames, turn off lights, open doors, pick locks, pick pocket guards, create distractions (throw glasses/bottles or break pitchers/vases) to lure guards out of your way without directly coming into contact with them. You can raise guard suspicion but don't want them charging or shooting at you.

Predator - "You used aggressive actions and overcame opponents by any means necessary."
- for this playstyle you will want to knock out/kill anyone on the level, make noise, get spotted, do anything you want to create havoc. (this one is my primary method)

Each Chapter will have different things for you to do. If you are not sure what your
Playstyle will be by the time the level is over, try to anticipate what it might fall between and go for both of those, or a sure fire way would be to go for all three to guarantee getting one while collecting loot. (But do not worry too much on loot)

The easiest playstyle to go for is Predator. Nothing really difficult about it; just shoot, knockout, or beat to death any guard on the level without worrying about being stealthy and you will easily get this playstyle as the dominate by the end of the level.

Finally you can check your progress towards the 25 Optional Objectives - Hit the BACK button, select PLAYER PROGRESSION, then STATISTICS, the scroll over to OVERALL with the LB/RB buttons. From this screen you can see the number of completed, compared to available, objectives and how many Chapters you have completed per Playstyle.
