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, without killing any sniper enemies that are on the roofs of the surrounding buildings.

Important Points:
- If a converted enemy kills a sniper, it will void the run.
- While not confirmed, I assume that AI teammates may void your run. I wouldn’t recommend using them.
- Use whatever skills, weapons and perk decks you feel most comfortable with.
- I personally used the Improved Combined Tactical Vest (Enforcer > Tank > Iron Man Aced) with Armorer perk deck and first aid kits.

- Crimenet Offline > Contract Broker > Classics > Undercover
- Normal Difficulty
- No Team AI

This achievement is very easy and shouldn’t require more than one run.

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.

On Normal difficulty, this is very easy. If you’re achievement glitches like me and doesn’t unlock, just complete if offline as per the above instructions and you’ll get it no problem.

Good luck everyone! toast
