Breaches begin to happen from around day 50 onward, occurring every 50 days or so after that. I found that the more the raiders stole during the breach, the longer it would be until the next one. Fending off an early breach can be difficult, but once you have expanded your shelter and gathered a heap of resources it is not too bad, albeit a bit luck based.

So what is a breach? Essentially some raiders will barge into your shelter and steal your supplies (food, water and fuel). You will get a message on screen that a breach is happening, accompanied by the ‘combat’ music. That is your signal to set up. Multiple raiders will attack your front doors, hacking through them and accessing your shelter. I had between 2-4 raiders each time. They will progress through the shelter until they find your storage, where they will take your hard earned goods. In my experience, they preferred fuel and would take around 40-50 each raider. They will then turn tail and run, leaving you with empty supply boxes and broken front doors!

While this is happening, you will get some fight cut scenes, where one of your people will have to fight one or more raiders. To be honest, I have no idea what triggers this – it occurred when my people were in hiding spots, or 2 levels below the raiders. Regardless, if you kill an enemy during the cut scene, IT DOES NOT VOID THE ACHIEVEMENT. The only real issue here is that you can lose the battle(s) and your person can die.

To fight off a breach you need to place traps around your shelter. With each workbench tier you get new and better traps. Obviously you want to place the traps in the path that the raiders will take, e.g. between the front doors and your storage boxes.

Now, the complicating part is that when you place a trap it will remain disarmed until the breach begins. For this reason, you must craft numerous trip-wires (tier 1 on the workbench, scroll down to the bottom row), at least one for every trap you intend on using and have them ready beforehand.

When the breach begins, you must use the time it takes for the raiders to break the front doors to arm each trap. Simply click on each trap and select 'Arm Trap'. I set up my shelter in such a way that I was able to arm the traps and descend to the bottom of the shelter (I always ran and hid from the raiders so I don’t know what happens if they catch you!).

As I mentioned above, there is a bit of luck involved. Traps can miss or only do a small amount of damage, and there might be too many raiders for your traps to manage.

When I got the achievement, I had 2 shotgun traps with 2 spike traps just inside the front doors, then more spike traps on the level below. I was on about day 280 and it was my fourth breach. I knew I was overdue, so I kept a number of people loitering near the traps, ready to set them up. Even with upgraded front doors, you do not have much time!

SUMMARY:
- Plan your shelter. Place storage as far from the front doors and possible and make the path way there long enough to place traps along it.
- Build traps along the path that the raiders will take.
- Build trip-wires at the workbench, enough for each trap.
- Upgrade both front doors to give yourself more time.
- When the breach starts, arm the traps and descent to the bottom of your shelter.
- Fight any cut scene battles.
- Hope that your traps can take out the raiders.
- If it fails, try again in another 50 days or so!

I used PsychoDelusion’s guide over on xboxachievements.com when I was playing so credit to them.

Good luck and please comment you have any questions or better tactics!
