    This is a simple achievement as long as you play this game the way it was intended: stealthily.

    The prologue does count for this achievement, so what you need is the following:

    Chapter 1
    Chapter 2

    Stay out of sight and do not leap off from any buildings, and you will be fine. Playing on normal there are no traps in any of the chapters (at least along the main routes) and guards can easily be avoided or, if you like, dispatched without an issue.

    Save often, and if for some reason you take damage, reload your save. Be patient and examine the areas thoroughly. I also recommend getting the wrench as soon as possible (vender near of the chapel) as it will open up routes to you and allow you to bypass a lot of guards.

    This really isn't a difficult achievement. It is easiest to do the achievement on either Prologue, Chapter 1, Chapter 2, or chapters 1-3. Chapter 4 and chapter 6 both have areas where you are likely to take damage from smoke/fire, so the early chapters are the best place to complete three consecutively without taking damage.

    Play on easy and basically just take a stealth approach. The enemies are far less observant than on the other difficulty levels. Save often and load your save if any soldier has a red eye over their head, because this indicates you are going to be attacked, and you will likely take damage. Also, (obviously) load your save if you take damage from anything else. It may be a good idea to check your health level before saving.

    Timww572You can do this on any three levels, there isn't any mandatory damage. If you don't move fast enough you will take smoke/fire damage, but you can move fast enough to avoid it.

    "Mandatory damage" is a poor choice of words here. Certainly the risk of damage in those chapters is much higher, but it is not scripted damage. It is avoidable, as demonstrated by the fact that most people probably incorporate the No Damage modifier in their Custom-700 difficulty run, as I did.
