    To get this achievement, you need to complete all the main missions without killing or knocking out anyone after the one mandatory knockout in the prologue. If you are like me and aren't great at this game, here are some tips.

    -Play on easy. The enemies are far less observant.

    -It is easiest to do this as a mostly stealth playthrough, but if you get detected you can run away pretty easily in a lot of areas. Your priority should be to complete the main objectives. Getting treasure shouldn't be a priority unless you are trying to do multiple achievements on one playthough.

    -You can use choke arrows and flash bangs if needed to get past an enemy.

    -Use a lot of water arrows, and be sure to keep a lot of them on hand. Also, be sure to keep a lot of food.

    -Buy the wire cutter and wrench as early as possible. Then focus on upgrades like lockpicking, damage resistance, the one that makes food have more effect, etc.

    Seeker74Anyone or anything apparently. I shot an arrow toward a bird in chapter 7 to cause a distraction and I must have killed it because at the end of the chapter I had one kill. I was not about to replay that chapter. I may do another replay trying not to hurt anyone, or any birds, later.

    atryeu1This achievement glitchy. I didn't kill anybody the entire game for 21hrs, some idiot on patrol walks into some fire (that I did not cause, it was just there for the story) and is killed and it said I killed him and failed my achievement :( So unfair! Word of caution for anybody else trying for this, if a guard suicides it still counts against you :(

    In addition to the tips in the other solution, I found out that replaying once you have continued does not work. I had one kill on Chapter 7 and went back in and replayed it after I had been running around a bit and then, since I did not pop the achievement, replayed 8 as well. No achievement. From what I can see, you need to not hurt anyone or anything (choke arrows on birds or dogs will mess you up) in all 8 levels back to back (the required kill in the prologue is not part of the 8 chapters counted) before you go out hurting people in other places. I don't know if kills in the City or side missions count against you (some sources say no), so I'd recommend doing as little as possible outside of getting supplies, between missions.

    YaziteThis achievement isn't hard at all to be honest. You just need to take it slow. Might want to add to the solution that the mandatory kill in the prologue does not count to this.

    KungFooZombieI came here to check that, Yazite :P. Your comment would make a fine addition to the solution.
