This achievement essentially requires you to complete the entire game without alerting any enemies (this does not have to be done in one playthrough and levels may be re-done in any order).

I'll define 'alert' as best I can - The bar above an enemies head represents their alert-status. This bar is allowed to turn FULLY YELLOW (Suspicious) and FULLY ORANGE (where they begin a search) without voiding the Shadow insignia. If this turns FULLY RED then they are 100% ALERT - if that happens, you will need to reload a save/autosave and continue on from there.

Tips:
cn_start I would recommend you try for this achievement on your second playthrough as you will most likely have the majority of upgrades and also know where to go and what enemies are where, but that is entirely up to you.

cn_start Upgrade Styx's Stealth all the way FIRST, then do whichever upgrades you prefer afterwards. Personally I think upgrading equipment/cloning next would be the most useful.

cn_start SECOND PLAYTHROUGH: When you pause the game, the insignia's are displayed at the bottom right hand side of the screen! If you think you've alerted someone, check to see if it's still on ZERO!

cn_start Try to keep your amber up at max (or close to it) as far as possible through missions so you can use it when the going gets tough!

cn_start SAVE OFTEN!! Can't stress that enough, you are likely to fail sneaking past enemies multiple times, be sure to save your game after every section so you don't end up losing 10+ minutes of progress! (Guilty of this redface)

cn_start In a tough spot? Use a CLONE to distract your enemies! Lead them away from areas so you can sneak past! Any alerts created by a clone WILL NOT count towards the insignia!

cn_start Not going for the mercy insignia? Dispatch of any enemies in your way! Just make sure their bodies aren't found!

cn_start This can be achieved on any difficulty! Do it on easy if you wish!
