DISCLAIMER: Due to the widespread issues with Payday 2 DLC achievements, you may find you do not unlock this achievement even after completing the necessary requirements.
If this happens to you, you should complete this in Crimenet Offline, while disconnected from Xbox Live (Settings > Network > Go Offline)

This achievement requires you to complete the Undercover mission on Overkill, without anyone going down.

Important Points:
- I’d recommend doing this with a group of 4 players. However, if your achievement glitches, you will need to do this by yourself.
- While not confirmed, I assume that AI teammates may void your run. I wouldn’t recommend using them.

My Loadout
- My personal preference was to use a tank build with converted hostages.
- Weapon: Thanatos .50 cal Sniper Rifle as it takes Green Bulldozers out in 2-3 shots and Cloakers in 1 shot.
- Equipment: Ammo bag or First Aid Kit if you want to be really careful.
- Mastermind > Controller Tree > Force Friendship, Confident Aced, Joker Aced, Partners in Crime Aced
- Enforcer > Tank > Iron Man Aced
- Enforcer > Ammo Specialist > Scavenger Aced, Bulletstorm Aced, Extra Lead Aced, Fully Loaded.
- Perk Deck > Muscle (for health regen)

- Crimenet Offline > Contract Broker > Classics > Undercover
- Overkill Difficulty
- No Team AI
- Buy doctors bag and ammo if you need it.

- Try to convert the FBI agents without armor from the start of the mission. They are godly and will be very helpful defending the hack. This is especially useful if you’re doing offline solo.
- Depending on the spawn of the computer room, you can sit in a corner and let the converted enemies sponge all the enemy attention. Prioritise taking out out shields, Dozers and cloakers.
- If you see a cloaker, back up as much as you can and let him aggro your converted enemies. You only need one shot to take him out with the sniper.
- There is a cloaker at the very end of the mission, before the chopper. As you shoot the lock and open the gate on the roof, carefully walk forward and you’ll see him to your left, around the corner.

Mission Walkthrough

At the start of the mission, you will spawn in the same room as the computer where you’ll be performing the hack. Take a few minutes before the action starts to search around the building for planks of wood. These will be used to block the windows in the computer room, to stop snipers firing at you.

Once the limo gets lifted up by the crane, you’ll have to run to saw the taxman out. The limo might end up on the roof, in the stairwell after falling through the roof or on the top floor on the balcony. Normally the saw will break down once or twice and will require your input to restart.

Once the saw is complete, you will breach the limo to release the taxman and take the server. Walk the taxman down to the computer room and connect the server and power.

Over the next ten minutes, you’ll need to get the passwords from the taxman and complete the hack. When the taxman has a gold outline, use RB to yell at him. If he shakes his head, melee him once then yell at him again. Sometimes he will go unconscious for a moment before you can resume this.

During the hack, enemies can interrupt the process by either engaging with the computer or turning off the power around the building. Just defend the room and shoot any enemies that get close and follow the objective marker if the power turns off.

Good luck everyone! toast
