    Thought i'd add a solution seeing as there isn't one.

    Sounds hard but is easier than the similar achievements in AC China and India.

    No alert simply means you can't get the message 'Alert' which appears in red if you alert a guard by being in their line of sight or by them finding bodies. On Plus Hard you only see their vision cones by using eagle vision.

    As opposed to the AC India one you can be seen just as long as you don't get the alert message, so it is not necessary to get 'Gold' throughout, some silvers are fine and you can check after each section as it tells you if you have alerted anyone.

    Pointers: If you alert guards then pause and restart the section.
    - You can kill guards as long as the body isn't found, so in areas with multiple enemies you can use cover, hide bodies or use helix kill.
    - Smoke grenades are your friends - whilst not strictly necessary it's advisable to get enough shadow golds in the 2 levels that increase smoke grenade capacity in order to get the upgrades where you can carry 6 smoke grenades. This makes life very easy. At least get to 4 smoke grenades, that's enough, as I think the other upgrade is level 8/9 so a bit late for it to make that much of a difference.
    - Running slide kills are useful also when timing is tight/the guards with the circular vision cone.
    - As I said above you can be seen so that a guard investigates as long as you dont get an alert...it is useful and necessary to draw guards away like this a few times in the game.

    There are some exceptions where you cannot help but get alerts however - I could not for the life of me work out how to get through level 7 without alerts.
    - Straight after the second sniping section, as the girl, you run into a building, open a window, and the 2 guards get shot - it gives you an alert. I tried all sorts, whistling etc and none worked. You are allowed that alert right there.
    - A little further on and you climb up to where there are 3 guards, a locked door, and you open the window for 2 of the said guards to be shot. Again you are allowed that alert.

    For all the sniping parts it is possible to get no alerts, either by finding a 'route' and shooting guards in a certain order so no bodies are found, or by shooting near a pair of guards to draw their attention and then taking the pair out quickly so that it gives no alerts.

    You can check your progress - there are 10 levels so one level is worth 10%.

    Vid if you are stuck.

    TheOnlyMattoyeah mine tracked for lvl 4 but h3rmitard makes a good point.

    edit* mission 7's video clearly shows 2 alerts. Now you aren't actively causing the alerts, the assassin is as he snipes for you, but it still says alert. This didn't count against me.

    Drazer76Can play in any order in that sense? I.e. if you miss one you can go back and play that level again only?

    FerociousTiger1I checked after level 4 and was at 30%, kept playing and finished game was at 90%. Replayed mission 4 and nothing happened so replayed mission 3 and got the achievement.

    When I did this I checked the xbox achievements tracker after each level, to make sure it went up 10% each time. It was at 80% and I passed level 9 without alerting anyone (or so I thought), but the tracker stayed at 80%. I didn't feel like doing the level again straight away, so I did the final level (tank battle) first. After completing the 10th level the achievement plinged for me.
    Conclusion: If you finish a level and are sure you didn't alert anyone but the xbox achievement tracker doesn't go up 10%, write down that level and continue to the next. You can always go back to it later. It is possible that you completed it for the achievement, but the tracker is just not registering. The tracker is very useful, but not always accurate.

    romisthebestno thumbs down from me but this should be a comment in the guide above, not a new solution.

    Brutal Gutsi literally been doing sequence 6 ALL day, cancelled plans just to keep grinding, and its stuck. made it so i questioned myself deeply it is THAT bad. unless restarting the matches DOESNT help. each checkpoint or whatever said Gold with none seen None Alerted so i been raging inwardly and keep replaying. i just looked here randomly again and seen this post. thank you i will continue onward, but now i hate sequence 6 with a passion, i mean deep disdain passion

    Update: after moving on to sequence 7, in completion ( though did get mercy shooter as well) i checked the status to see if i atleast got sequence 7 with no alerts as 2xs there was an alert that i guess couldnt be helped, and Yes it then moved from 50 to 70 percent. hope this helps

    I did this achievements after doing replay mission 3 and mission 7. In other sections you can make plus Hard easily but in these missions where you play with orelov sniping you must not alert enemies. If you have all upgrade for orelev sniping you can kill quickly.

    In mission 3 sniping, first I tried to find perfect spot to seperate enemies from each other. I shoot the ground near anastasia (you can try and find too), then kill them quickly. Next wave of enemies, you can see there is 2 enemies walking very close. Shot the second one and quickly shot the first one. Try this without making alert them. Last wave you can see a truck with machine gun. Total 3 waves make this without alerting them.
    In mission 7, you are sniping with orelov and controling anastasia. In sniping parts; at the beginning there are 2 soldiers and 1 officer caming from door. Seperate the soldiers first, make them look different ways, kill officer then kill middle soldier, than kill the last standing soldier. To second sniping part you can kill other soldiers easily when they opened their doors. In second part of sniping, where anastasia hiding in the doorway shadow, there will be 2 soldier caming from the right window. Seperate the soldiers from each other then kill quickly. Memorize the soldiers caming from which door first then kill them quickly. Third and last Orelov sniping part, when I killed 2 soldier on the boat or shoot the truck tire I saw alert, maybe it won't happen at your tries.
    At anastasia part, you can whistle while you open the windows and use your helix blend quickly. I did this and it did soldiers to look different ways. There are 4 floor. First floor use whistle at the end of opening window, The soldier at the left side will look to you. Use your helix blend quickly. Orelov will kill two of them. At second floor you can hide in the shadows quickly and kill the first one from shadows and kill the other one without waiting, be carefull the other one will look at you if you be too slow. You can past the second floor without opening Windows, it help you to shorthening your time to make 10 minutes in this mission. After you come to third floor wait for soldier to look back. Reminder: He will always look behind one time after every conversation start. Open the door and kill the enemy and use helix blade. The most painfull part of this game is here. You will try too much for not alerting at this part but if you read other comments about this achievement they say it doesnt count alerting the soldiers in this house. But I made no alert every floor.
    Whistle near the crane arm, The soldier at the left side will here you and open the window quickly. After opening window quickly use your helix blend. (after you use your whistle it gives you 1 or 2 second to run for crane arm. When you use the crane arm you can see, you are out of sight.) Orelov will kill two of them without alerting. Last floor you can Whistle from green columb left of the door and orelov will kill it for you too. Whistle and use crane arm together and see yourselves. These were my methods. Thanks for reading. :)
