    Sure, you can disable Focus in Options. But I can't believe no one has mentioned that you can incorporate this achievement with...

    THIEF (Xbox 360)Something to ProveThe Something to Prove achievement in THIEF (Xbox 360) worth 512 pointsFinish the game with a custom difficulty of 700 points or more

    ...by disabling Focus in the Custom Difficulty setup. It's in the first section, Classic Thief Mods. Having No Focus turned on awards you 50 points toward the 700.

    I much preferred using focus throughout my first run (on Thief difficulty), then doing without it during the Master/700 playthrough. And having it disabled certainly took the worry away from accidentally hitting cn_Y , especially after having used it enough in my first run that it became a habit.

    A comment in the other solution mentions needing Focus at the end of Chapter 3 to find the symbols. Although Focus makes it easier to find them in those little alcoves, no, Focus is not required there, nor anywhere else for that matter.

    This is self explanatory. Don't use focus. Can be done easily in rogue along with A Moral Victory. It takes either patience or knowledge of the map for previous play throughs. There were a few instances where I said screw it and just sprinted through enemies and hid when I was clear of them so play how you like.

    Credit to gomofob You can disable focus by going into options>game>Focus mode off

    GodLike499Is it necessary to disable focus mode for this achievement, or is it good enough to just play through the game without using the (y) button? I'm in the middle of a game and haven't used focus yet. I just want to know if I can still pop the achievement of if I need to start over.

    SKX Sick OneYou don't need to disable it but it does make it easier.
