    This is achievement is during Mission 14: The Descent about 20 minutes into the mission you will reach the Reactor Maintenance, you must then complete the objectives and then leave the area without dying.

    If any of the Aliens spot you, try to get the alien to retreat using a flamethrower or Molotov, if they are about to kill you, then quickly load your current save. You will also need to look out for the facehuggers, which you will also need to burn or they will kill you instantly, you should be able to hear the squealing before they attack you.

    I recommend you watch the video below, so you can see the quickest routes to complete the objectives and when you will be attacked by the facehuggers.

    MeszerusVideo works a charm.
    The second facehugger where there's also an Alien, can be hard to spot. I think if you drive the Alien back and progress quick enough, you likely wont even hear the facehugger or have it be a problem. And then the alien at the end, near the elevator, I found it easier just to ignore it as I head towards the exit and it didn't spot me.

    ChrisChrimboI did the first reactor then saved. went back to it a few days later and got killed by the Alien on the way to the second reactor and thought balls I messed up the achievement now. I finished the reactor section and escaped then the achievement popped. so not sure how that happened.

    Pure Pip RaptorSomething I would like to add is about the facehuggers. As you may know, there are a few of them in this level. Sometimes you hear them squeal but you can't find them and next thing you know there's one on your face. The game doesn't really give you much time to pause when that happens but I found a way around that. When it goes on your face and even if the screen goes black and you're quick enough you can just hit the Xbox home button on the controller. Once you go to home it will show the game paused. Click the game to go back into it and it will stay paused. Then click load current save. I can confirm this works as I did it a few times myself and still got the achievement.

    Tuxie DuckThis might be bugged. I died several times and reloaded from the post-death screen. Still got this at the elevator.
