    During Chapter One after taking a ride with Docter Swansea and arriving at the Hospital, head left and you'll encounter two men fighting each other. Speak to the man that stays behind and he will rudely introduce himself as Clay. You'll be given two options during the upcoming tutorial to either EMBRACE or RELEASE him. You'll need to embrace Clay for this achievement and kill him.

    NOTE: Be warned, killing Clay will cause the Merciful Release and Not Even Once achievements to be unobtainable so it's recommended that you create a back-up save.

    To get both, either disconnect your Xbox from the internet just before encountering Clay, then delete your save file, reconnect to the internet and have the cloud bring it back.. OR.. immediately after interacting with Clay, go back to the main menu and load your game again if it hasn't saved by this point.

    SiegfriedXTried several times to delete my local file and the achievement would not pop at all. Either there is a very specific way to do this or it just works for some people...

    SpiralOut46and2I just did the same as flipmodeXXIII. I stayed online normally and never had to go offline to get both. When I encountered Clay and embraced him, this achievement popped instantly. I then dashboarded, quit out of the game, and reloaded it. It never auto-saved at the Clay encounter (even after you bite him), so it loads you back up at the moment you step off the boat. I then walked back to Clay and released him, unlocking the Merciful Release achievement too. Hopefully this will work for everyone, rather than trying to use the offline method, as the offline method doesn't seem to be needed for the Clay achievements here?

    InvasiveMatoJust a note - it takes about 20 minutes to get the achievement from start of the game, if you skip all cutscenes (hold cn_X) and rush through.

    If you want to earn both this achievement and “Merciful Release” you can do it easily without messing about with game saves and replaying isn't necessary. First embrace Clay and you will get this achievement then return to home screen and close the game. When you reload the game you will have the option again to embrace Clay or let him go. Let him go this time and you will unlock the “Merciful Release” achievement.

    LeGagnanCan confirm it is possible to do it like this. Kill the dude and as soon as you get the achievement dashboard and quit game.
