    For a comprehensive guide, see my Not A WalkthroughTM list. It walks you through the entire game, including other story-related and collectible achievements.

    Part 1: Blair Witch Not A Walkthrough - Part 1 - Beginning to Truck Fuse Puzzle
    Part 2: Blair Witch Not A Walkthrough - Part 2 - Truck Fuse Puzzle to Rail Track
    Part 3: Blair Witch Not A Walkthrough - Part 3 - Rail Track to Third Campsite
    Part 4: Blair Witch Not A Walkthrough - Part 4 - Third Campsite to Finale

    It's harder to be stealthy in the early game, but gets much easier after you get the new camcorder. Avoid every monster and don't shine a light on them. The best way to do this is to just never use your flashlight and rely on your camcorder's night vision the entire game.

    You should only do this in a second playthrough since certain areas, particularly the Maintenance Shed and Camp B, can be difficult to find your way even when you have light. Using a flashlight in these areas will wake the monsters, and you won't be able to escape them without killing them (which you don't want to do).

    Suggestions from the comments: crank up the brightness in the game, and don't use the rail car when you go to the Maintenance Shed and Camp B. In some sections, I did use my flashlight to get a feel for the area, let them kill me, then redo it.

    Pay attention to Bullet, especially when he growls. He will point at monsters that you may not otherwise see. Don't worry if your screen starts flickering (you won't be able to avoid this), it's only when the screen turns red that you're being hunted. At that point, just let them kill you and restart your area.

    xXGamerXPro75XxI missed this achievement but I coulda sworn it woulda triggered during my Break The Cycle run. I did have to kill one monster- but I quit to the main menu and reloaded the most recent checkpoint. I don't know if this matters- but when I reloaded, the boxcar from chapter 8 (?) was right there by the maintence shed even tho I left it at the place you take the valves and such.

    Sir PaulygonHad a lapse in judgement during Chapter 13 -- it was my stopping point from the day prior. Anyway, turned on the flashlight and made one of those apparitions attack me. Immediately quit the game -- dashboard, basically.

    Nothing autosaved and since you technically can't kill those particular enemies at that point in the game, I'm hoping I will end up being fine. Just wondering if anyone experienced this.

    I have uploaded a video where I show how to get the Achievements "Pacifist" and "Ray of hope". It's in 4K, but it might take some time for YT to process it to 4K. So, if it's 360p in the meantime, y'all know why XD

    Here's the vid:

    Maiden Ty OneHeads up - whichever item you get first in Chapter 8, the pressure thing or valve, go back to the camp and put it on the machine before moving onto the second one and you'll get a checkpoint/savepoint.
