How to obtain
: Pick up a quantum ripple and an intel item. The achievement will unlock as soon as you get one of each. Earliest opportunity to unlock: About a third of the way through Act 2, Part 1 right after Jack rescues a civilian. An intel item will be on a table. Prior to picking up the intel item, there are three opportunities to pick up a quantum ripple. If at least one of these quantum ripples is picked up, the achievement will unlock when you interact with the intel item.
Specific details on the intel item and the three quantum ripples available before the intel item with spoiler tags:
Note: Difficulty does not affect the achievement. The quantum ripples and intel items are picked up in benign environments although, in a couple of cases, threats had to have been neutralized immediately preceding as part of normal story progression.
