First things first. Turn on the challenge!

Now this achievement seems pretty tough the first few times you get snagged by a trap, but it become pretty easy one you do one thing. Skip the crypts that have floor traps. Floor traps will cause you to fail if the trap activates at all. Since falling in the trap means death, you must jump over the trap completely or walk around it. You cannot shoot the trap! It will fail the challenge. Most of the times you find floor traps they are at the bottom of a large drop at the start of the crypt and you are setup for failure. Just turn around and find another. I only had to skip 3 crypts due to floor traps being preset. It's just not worth the risk.

The other two traps are activated with pressure plates. I used infinite poison arrows and just scanned the floor every 5 feet and shot the switch with the poison arrow since you are not wasting anything.

Do be careful of your return trip out of the crypts. They often spawn new traps on your way out. Watch your step going back and you should be safe. I did have a crypt with a floor trap that I could walk around and a new floor trap had spawned in front of the previous safe zone and I had to jump over it. I got very lucky and didn't trigger it.

The achievement pops when you open the 5th codec/sarcophagus.

UPDATE: There are reports of being able to shoot the spike traps and still get the achievement after an update. I do still see comments for people that have issues with shooting the traps, so it may not work for everyone.
