    For this achievement you need to complete 72 Hour mode followed by Overtime Mode without being knocked out by either the Cultists or the Special Forces.

    The Cultists spawn during Day 2, and their arrival is preceded by purple flyers appearing around the Mall. Once this occurs, step into Paradise Plaza and a cutscene will play. The Cultists are yellow raincoat wearing jerks who stand around in groups of 10 or so and creep slowly towards you, before lunging at you with a knife. Their killer attack is the dust attack, which will catch you by surprise. If that hits, you'll hit a loading screen, and wake up in a box in a room in Leisure Park, stripped naked and devoid of any items. If this happens, your Unbreakable run is void.

    To prevent this try engaging the Cultists from afar, preferably using the Real Mega Buster, just to be on the safe side.

    The Special Forces appear later in 72 Hour Mode, and are present in Overtime Mode as well. A cutscene will play showing them rappelling into Entrance Plaza during Day 4. If you die while the Special Forces are in the mall, instead of having to reload a save you will wake up tied up in a Special Forces helicopter. If that happens, your Unbreakable run is also void.

    To prevent this happening, rush the soldiers with a hard-hitting melee weapon like the Small Chainsaw and make sure to stock up on healing items (such as the infinite Orange Juice in Colombian Roastmasters in Paradise Plaza).

    Jul 4 1776I am pretty sure that the cultists don't matter.

    Jul 4 1776Easiest way to get it is start a new overtime mode from the main menu and finish it. It'll take you an hour, rather than 6 (72HR mode).

    Pedle ZelnipI can in fact confirm that being knocked out by the cultists *does* invalidate this achievement if you continue on the same save. Right after completing 72 hour mode when I did my PP sticker run (so had to be knocked out by the cultists) I continued on the same save with all the same items I had at the end of 72 hour mode. Continued, and completed overtime mode without ever being stopped by the military, and while the achievement for completing OT mode unlocked, this achievement did not.

    Best to be safe & do a new OT game rather than continue straight from 72 hour mode.
