    This challenge is for completing a mission without being spotted.
    I do not know if this only counts soldiers or if feral wild animals must also be avoided.

    What counts as being spotted is if you trigger reflex mode, so if you like to play with that setting off then I suggest you turn it on for this challenge.
    So you can make guards suspicious if they get a glimpse of you in the distance and you see that white glare that's fine but if they get the exclamation mark and force you in to slow motion you'll have to restart the mission.

    You're allowed to kill/blow things up as long as it doesn't trigger reflex mode. Be careful, if you shoot a vehicle with a explosive and it doesn't blow up with the first hit then you might trigger reflex mode.

    Now there's probably a ton of easy missions to get this done on and there's a huge chance you might get this done by accident but if you're looking for a quick and easy way just to get it over with then look no further than mission 14: Lingua Franca.
    Select to depart at 0600 and follow the video below. You run into one guard that you can dispose of however you wish and then proceed to finish the mission.

    PhillyCh3zSt3akYou can miss a shot with a silenced non-lethal weapon, so long as whomever you shot at investigates the impact where you shot (like in the example of this video I took Quiet with me instead of taking D-Horse as I needed her bond rating up) it will not count as an alert and therefore the Challenge still valid to be unlocked.

    The aim of this challenge is to complete a Main mission of MSGV without triggering Reflex Mode, or entering Combat Status.
    The easiest mission to do this in is in Prologue: Awakening. The only place you are able to break stealth is in the Foyer, before you meet up with Ocelot. You can also work towards the achievements:
    *** Spoiler - click to reveal ***

    When you reach the foyer, DO NOT go down the stairs. Instead, crouch using cn_A, and creep around the corner, sticking to the left hand wall, until you see an opening in the barrier. Go prone by holding cn_A, and wait until the enemy near you has its back to you. Crouch using cn_A again, then drop down onto the floor. Once you land, IMMEDIATELY go prone, and slowly move towards the exit. After the ensuing cutscene, there aren't any enemies left! Follow the mission as normal, and once completed, you should unlock the achievement.
