    Best Prison to do this on is Centre Perks 2.0.

    Like it states you have to go 3 consecutive days without raising your Guard Heat above 0 in a single session. You can pause but you can’t quit out and go back in.

    You do this by following the routine it asks you to do in the top right-hand corner and don't cause any trouble.

    Start a new game in CP 2.0 and you can do what I did below if you having any problems:

    07:00 – 08:00: Roll Call – Get to the Roll Call area ASAP and wait until next routine.
    08:00 – 09:00: Breakfast - Just sit down in any chair in the Food Hall and wait.
    09:00 – 12:00: Free Time – I just went back in my prison cell and laid in bed so I didn’t get into any trouble or see any guards.
    12:00 – 13:00: Lunch - Like breakfast, just sit down in any chair and wait.
    13:00 – 15:00: Job Time – Go to the job office and sit in the chair and wait.
    15:00 – 16: 00: Exercise Time – Just use one of the equipment’s, I didn’t even press any buttons to do the exercise, just made sure I was on one.
    16:00 – 17:00: Shower Time – Just follow everyone and go to the shower room and use one.
    17:00 – 18:00: Dinner – As before, just sit down in any chair and wait.
    18:00 – 22:00: Free Time – Like the last free time, go to your prison cell and wait it out.
    22:00 – 23:00: Roll Call – Get to the area ASAP and wait until its time for bed.
    23:00 – 07:00: Lights Out – Go back to your cell and sleep - Time flies by.

    Do that 2 more times and achievement is yours when you get to Roll Call on Day 4.

    Quick tip: When you load up your new game check your desk to make sure you haven’t got any illegal items in there and if you do hide them in the hidden compartment just in case you get picked for a cell search.

    Guard Heat is the icon on the lower left where the hand/baton is shown, NOT the stars that appear if you miss a routine.

    J ROLLER 1979The second Free Time finishes at 22.00 on mine, not 21.00

    SeitzzGreat time to work on shower time for this. Once you get the check mark for the period you can move wherever as long as you're not where you aren't supposed to go. The guards shouldn't give you a heat level so just head to the showers most of the time.

    MansaOyunI tried following the "proper" routine and got busted being a few minutes late to the job office on my second day, so I seriously streamlined the routine and proceeded to show up early to everything. You don't get in trouble for being anywhere once you check-in to where you're supposed to be.

    07:00 – Check-in at Roll Call then move straight to the Food Hall
    07:15-12:30 - Sit down in the Food Hall, wait through Breakfast, Free Time and Lunch
    13:15 – Head to the Job Office and sit through the rest of Lunch and Job Time
    15:00 – Check-in at the Gym and then head straight to the Showers for an hour
    16:15 – Sit down in the Food Hall, wait through Shower Time, Dinner and Free Time
    22:00 – Check-in at Roll Call and then go straight to bed (It'll be morning before everyone else even gets to their cell!)

    Bunny BreakfastThanks! Did exactly as the guide said except for free time I went to the showers to work on that achievement! Excellent guide though!

    thanatos8285This is simultaneously too cautious and too risky, somehow. You just have to be in the room for the activity to register, you don’t have to do a thing. Set one foot in the cafeteria during meal time, and you showed up for meal time. No need to sit down, stay the whole time, take a tray, anything. Same goes for everything else. Recommending that anyone needs to go through the motions is excessive. And at the same time, you pick up heat by being late to activities, so recommending people stay in the room for the whole activity is the unnecessary risk. If shower time starts at 16:00, you should be in there as close to 15:00 as possible, not waiting until 16:00 to start heading there. As soon as you have your check mark, head to the next room you’ll need to be in.

    The ZiggmasterIt's a really boring way to do it, but you can just surrender, go to solitary, and do that continuously for 3 days. It'll get you the Are You Lonesome Tonight? achievement as well. Just make sure you let the timere run out and solitary time be over the first 2 times to build it up to 3 hours on CP2.0. Then, just surrender over and over at about 15 minutes left on the solitary clock.

    ShinwashaThanks Zigg. Did the solitary. Knocked that out as well.

    AUSSIE NUGGETTThis guide worked great! Just wanted to mention for anyone looking to do this, as you have to do it in one session without quitting out, allocate yourself about 45mins for this achievement, that's how long it took me to complete the 3 days and then get to roll call on day 4.

    DJBringaUsed the solitary method as well. That was painful. Just a heads up for anybody who will use this method as well... this takes over an hour to compete. Night time doesn't fast forward when you're in solitary so that adds a lot of extra time so the days are 24 minutes long in real time
