    Using this method can earn you 3 achievements from a single Android. At the very beginning of mission 4 you will go down a hall way and see an Android with his back to you. Hit him a couple of times with the jack and then turn around and run to the beginning of the level. If you did not receive damage from the Android the "Not A Scratch" achievement will pop. Now go back and sneak up behind the Android and swing a couple more times and then flee again. Do this until he is dead which is about 6 to 7 hit with the jack. Once dead you will earn "Fault Detected" and "My Turn Now".

    Here's my video contribution. This details how to get three achievements at once (including Fault Detected) for the first android encounter of the game.

    (Note: I did this on Normal mode, so your results may vary depending on difficulty).

    Hope it helps!
