    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

    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)

    InvasiveMatoI 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 DavoIt 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.

    RhyoliticOne recommendation I would have for this is to delete the Alien Hunters DLC pack (BEFORE you start a game - learned that the hard way). That frickin' Gamma snakedude can easily kill your soldiers with his tongue (that is long enough to drag someone halfway across the map) and kill 'em in a turn, well before you have any chance of saving the soldier. Add in the absurd level of health the rulers get and it's nothing more than a pain, especially if you are doing the Ironman run at the same time.

    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:
