    Not really a "guide" so to speak, I'll delete this when/if someone wants to create a more complete version. However, this is just a heads up that if you run the tutorial mission, the soldier deaths will ruin the chance of getting this achievement. So make sure you skip the tutorial before you start down the road for this one.

    As discussed in this thread of the XCom 2 forum:
    The Untouchables - Tutorial Deaths

    BLUEBERRYPETE stated:
    I bought the DLC, and my SPARK (non human robot) squad member died on the last mission and I still got the achievement.

    So there may be some leeway given in the final mission, or regarding SPARK units when playing with the DLC. Ideally some other people can confirm the particulars of this.

    OK, so confirmed by Lt Davo that the final mission is the key and not simply the unit being a SPARK.

    Orange1155 has confirmed that losing mind controlled enemies during the final battle does not void the achievement, but the lost "soldiers" do show up in the Bar's roster. I would assume mind controlled enemies that are lost at any point in the game should not invalidate this achievement, although I would wait for a confirmation from someone before taking that chance.

    (Seriously, someone post a proper solution, this looks like garbage)

    bmlortz I don't believe you thought that through, or I misunderstood your statement. If they are starting a new game, then they can avoid the tutorial. But if you are talking about changing if the game registers the deaths in the tutorial, I do not think that is possible. Once the deaths happen, the progress is saved and it is a part of all future save files (I think). Short of hex level hacking of the save file, which is possibly as simple as flipping a bit, I doubt there is a work around.

    InvasiveMato I can confirm that having soldier(s) at state "Bleeding out" before killing the last target of the final mission will not void this achievement.

    Lt Davo It seems there is still confusion or uncertainty over the requirements for this achievement, but they are actually extremely simple:

    Before you begin the final mission, is there a fallen soldiers list in your bar/memorial, with names and pictures on it?

    If you answered, "yes," then too bad, you can't unlock this achievement. Either a) start a new game, or b) reload from a point where you had no deaths. If the tutorial was enabled on this playthrough, then b) is out.

    If you answered "no," you will unlock the achievement when you beat the final mission no matter what.
