    Works in base game only, it does not in War of The Choosen.

    Achievement is quite easy with infinite turn glitch. This glitch works in standard and Ironman playthrough, on any difficulty.
    To make it work you have to save game short before you finish last move of your last character after which normally enemy would have his turn and then load that save. You will still have your turn while enemy looses his.
    Just be carefull with few exceptions, enemies who transforms from other forms or pop up can still make their move so watch out when you want to trigger them - this applies for Andromedons, Chryssalids and Faceless.

    Using this glitch you can even go for all below achievements in same playthrough:

    I got this from the ps trophies roadmap so it's not mine but you can play through the game till the last mission and delete your guerrilla tactics school before starting the final mission in the commander difficulty. I only had one psychic soldier by the time I finished the game so before the last mission I trained two more as much as I could before the advent bar filled up. I deleted my tactics school and brought 3 psychic soldiers and a ranger with double shot skill and a superior repeater.

    After every group of enemies you encounter I would reload and wait several turns to refill void lance, domination etc before moving into the next group of enemies. The ranger with repeater kills so.many enemies especially using the double shot skill including the avatars at the end of the mission.

    That's how I lined up for the last mission but it doesnt matter what team you bring the important thing here is you can delete the school before the last mission and still get the achievement.
