    Maintenance jack is used automatically when you press cn_RT

    Can be done right at the beginning of Mission 4. Walk down the hallway until you see an android that's facing to the right. The first time you can even run up to him and hit him quickly, but the next few times he seems to be more aware.

    Hit him twice and immediately step back so he doesn't grab you. Run back to the beginning of the Mission and wait for a few seconds. Take your time and walk back. He will be standing in the same are and you can hit him again. On easy he takes 7 hits, so you have to repeat this 3 more times.

    My Name Is FuzSame here with the boltgun, but not the first time. I had killed a few of them so this was like the 5th android beaten with it. Ah well, one less thing to do on the second playthrough.

    Sensei Neo^Headshots can definitely work. I kept using shotgun at point blank & got it in 5 kills. Saved a bit of time

    Start up mission 4 and walk around past the reception and continue down the walkway you'll come across an Android with he's back to you slowly walk up to him and use cn_RT twice and then turn and run away back to the start thus losing him. Once back at the start start making your way back to him and creep up on him and do the same as before then return back to the start and do this one final time and he will die netting you the achievement.

    Just be very careful after you return to him because if you run or walk up to him he probably will turn around and chase you.

    Maka91 offered me he's video to show how its done so thank him.

    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".
