    I've verified that this method works on the Xbox One re-mastered version if you're going for the Saint Achievement exclusively. This method aims for Ending B which means you're going to let Case 7-1 [THE LAST RESORT] lapse intentionally on Day 3 and then be at the Heliport at noon on Day 4, September 22nd.

    Using this method you must lead 48 survivors to the Security Room. Brad, Jessie, Isabella, and Otis all count as survivors for this achievement ... so, Ending B is your friend for this 72-hour mode play-through that is "Saint" focused because in Ending B all of these characters survive.

    This is what you want your Notebook to look like at the end:

    Here's what your Survivor Chart should look like:

    52 survivors safe; that's 48 plus Brad, Jessie, Isabella, and Otis. Barnaby is the only one that gets the shaft here but hey, he had it coming.

    I recommend being level 50 and having the Real Mega Buster unlocked as it saves valuable time in dealing with psychopaths.

    Day 1 - September 19th
    [SURVIVOR 1, 2]
    12:30pm: Save Jeff + Natalie on Rooftop - snap a picture of the vent that leads to the Security Room; save it for later, you need it for the gun shop survivors on Day 3

    1:00pm: Go help Brad in the Food Court; beat Carlito; follow Brad through Al Fresca Plaza to Entrance Plaza

    [SURVIVOR 3]
    1:30pm: Save Bill in Entrance Plaza upstairs @ In the Closet; give him a gun
    2:00pm: Talk to Kent in Paradise Plaza @ Columbian Roastmasters while headed back to Security Room w/ Bill; progress his storyline by taking pictures as required

    [SURVIVOR 4, 5, 6, 7]
    4:00pm: Go save Aaron, Burt, and Leah in Al Fresca Plaza

    11:00pm: go save David in North Plaza - he needs to be carried, so best to save him on his own

    1:00am: you have a little time to kill before 6am on Day 2, so it's a good idea to go get the Maintenance Tunnel key just in case you need it later; I like to use the tunnels to access Wonderland Plaza right after getting the meds for Brad on Day 2 ... it's a quick way to get to Ross and Tonya in Run Like the Wind on the 2nd floor; also, it's also a good idea to always carry 1 or 2 bottles of wine for healing you and/or survivors or for Floyd who needs a bottle on Day 3 because he sucks

    Day 2 - September 20th
    6:00am: rescue professor as part of Case 2-2; progress Case Files; get meds for Brad in North Plaza @ Seon's (Grocery Store)

    7:00am: Go get Tonya + Ross [THE LOVERS] in Wonderland Plaza; don't give Ross a gun! take them back to Security Room, give Jessie the meds for Brad

    [SURVIVOR 14, 15]
    9:00am: save Heather and Pamela in Paradise Plaza; use a queen to save Pamela

    [SURVIVOR 16]
    10:00am: quickly save Gordon [THE COWARD] in Al Fresca Plaza; hustle back with him in order to get the 11am call from Otis re: Ronald the Restaurant Man ... take this call in the Warehouse

    [SURVIVOR 17]
    11:15am: save Ronald in Paradise Plaza @ Jill's Sandwiches; head up to Columbian Roastmasters at noon to show Kent an Erotica photo to progress his storyline; listen to the "Above the Law" Otis call at noon to get the scoop

    Remu6I fucked up and I didn't give him Ronald the food, can I still do it?

    Catatonic NaliHere's a thing that some people might find useful. You can combine this quite easily with the Transmissionary achievement with just a little careful saving.

    Follow this Saint guide closely and make sure you trigger all the mentioned Otis calls. Cross reference with Catapult's Transmissionary guide if you feel the need.

    At about 10:45am on Day 3 make a fresh save.
    At 11am take the call from Otis saying that Isabella wants to see you.
    Go to the Security Room to continue with the case file. Head towards the maintenance tunnels. Isabella will call you saying to hurry. I'm not sure if the calls from Isabella are required for Transmissionary but better to be safe and accept them.
    At 12pm you'll get two calls from Otis giving you the scoops "Kindell's Betrayal" as long as you're not in the Security Room and "A Woman In Despair" as long as you're not in Paradise Plaza.
    Finish the case clearing all the bombs out of the tunnels. Isabella will call you again towards the end of the case.
    Head back to the Security room collecting Simone from Paradise Plaza along the way. You must do this for a later call from Otis.
    Drop SImone off and talk to Kindell to stop his mutiny.
    Hang around in the warehouse waiting for the last handful of calls.
    At 5pm Otis calls to tell you to come back and talk to Jessie.
    Immediately afterwards he calls again saying to talk to Paul.
    At 7pm he'll call telling you to come talk to Simone.
    At 8pm he'll call telling you to come talk to Cheryl.
    You don't have to go talk to any of these people if you don't want to, just taking the calls is good enough.
    After the 8pm call you should pop Transmissionary if you've received all the calls. At this point I reloaded my 10:45am save and continued with the Saint guide to get that achievement as well.

    Don't worry too much if you don't keep up with the times in the guide there is plenty of time in certain parts, this guy must have been an absolute beast to do it in these times.
