    This achievement takes place on the mission Going Dark.

    If you get spotted, if you're fast enough you can revert to last checkpoint. When going for this achievement, I highly recommend that your turn the subtitles on so that you can see when the enemies are speaking. This is particularly useful when trying to find if there’s another person patrolling in the area. Another thing I noticed is that when you go to a different area, some of the enemies will be trying to contact the people from the pool area for example to see what they’re doing. If they get no response then you've killed enough people in that area.

    This achievement takes place after you repel down the mountain from Captain Price. First off, I recommend heading to the Pool area first as it’s the closest. Head right from the area you drop down and you’ll see the pool. Jump onto the sandbags to navigate over the wall and you will see two enemies by a lit fire, take them both out. Next you will want to deactivate the power for the pool which is found nearby the fire. Once you’ve done that jump on the dumpster to get onto the roof. When up here you will have a great view of the enemies from inside. Take out the enemies from the roof and jump on down. Once down patrol the building for any remaining enemies. Then interact with the hostage.

    Next make your way to the Courtyard area by heading out the entrance near the fireplace and turn right after you go past the small building. Now by this point a few enemies may be walking to the pool section. I recommend taking them out just in case as they could potentially find one of the bodies from earlier. Continue up the road and you’ll come across the Courtyard.

    Next you will want to deactivate the power to the Courtyard which is directly in front of you. Also shoot out the streetlights if possible as it’ll make navigating around easier. Head on inside through the window on the left side of the building and make sure to not get spotted and take care of the enemies inside. Also, by this point an enemy vehicle will be patrolling the map so make sure you are out of sight when it approaches. Before leaving the courtyard, double check the building and the outskirts for any other enemies.

    Head from the Courtyard to the Church by following the path via the left side. The Church gave me the biggest trouble as there isn’t many places to hide whilst outside in the graveyard. When in the graveyard I recommend that you take your time to make sure that an enemy isn’t close to another enemy, reason being is that if you kill them when they’re near someone else then they can get suspicious of your presence. The power switch for the Church can be found in the graveyard on the left side.

    Take your time navigating the graveyard, then head on inside and you will see 2-3 enemies in there. Take them down whilst inside. By this point I thought I had killed all of them so I waited around a bit checking the graveyard and some enemies from the road walked into the perimeter. I dealt with them and the achievement unlocked.

    If you are still struggling, feel free to use this as a reference.

    imtehz1337Can confirm that as long as you are not spotted, personally, the corpses can be found and you just have to kill the enemies that find them. Stay away from the technical and just keep cycling around the area. I found that the church has a lot of people come into it as you kill more enemies. Boost your dialogue to almost 100 so that you can hear the little dialogue bits and find the last few enemies. It only takes like 3-5 seconds for the achievement to pop when you kill the last guy

    TyolonEven though it might seem obvious I figured I’d share this because my achievement didn’t pop right away even those I was certain I was never caught. You have to fully clear each area by killing EVERY ENEMY in and around those 3 areas. I missed a soldier at the pool area and had to circle back to find him inside. As soon as I killed him the achievement popped. Use the subtitles as this greatly helped and made me realize I must have missed someone as it continued to say “I haven’t heard from 2 prisoner teams do you think there’s a breach?” There’s 3 prisoner teams (one for each location) so if you hear this once you’ve saved all 3 hostages and are told to proceed to the Main House then you know you missed someone and have to double back. This achievement can also be done while trying to acquire “Lights Out”. Happy Hunting!

    ---Mission 13: Going Dark---

    1. DO NOT talk to hostages
    2. Turn ON Subtitles & Use headphones
    3. Turn OFF lights to each building & street lights
    5. Leave the person yelling at the hostage for last
    6. It’s OK for enemies to see you, take them out quick

    Using those tips you shouldn't have too much trouble :) #1 is most important!

    + With every miscellaneous Achievement use "Reload Checkpoint" to your advantage, also difficulty won't void any of these so you can do them all on Recruit

    A few tips:

    Recruit difficulty, obviously. Anything else is unnecessary.

    Shoot streetlights as much as you can get away with.

    You must kill enemies on the grounds surrounding each building, but you dont have to kill enemies in unrelated buildings or patrolling the streets.

    Subtitles on so you can understand enemy comms.

    Look around for surrounding enemies before engaging.

    Always cut the power before entering.

    Pick up suppressed rifles and SMGs that are laying around. I know of at least one Famas and one AK.

    Check the roof of the pool and the second floor of the clock tower. I don't recommend breaching the pool through the roof, however.

    Don't talk to hostages until the achievement pops. Talking to hostages triggers enemy spawns and patrols. If you don't talk to your first hostage, the enemy truck won't even spawn. Leaving the grounds of an area will change the objective from "talk to the hostage" to "search the clocktower, etc."

    Kill the interrogators last. Their talking muffles the noise you're making and keeps enemies from wondering if something is wrong.

    Probe for the best entrances. The first one you find might not offer the best route.

    Surround sound. Headests or home theatre speakers will help drastically.

    You can revisit areas if you miss some or it doesn't pop.

    Be quick if you need to restart checkpoints. It won't void the achievement.

    Happy hunting. This one is tough.

    Visions of GoreThumbs up! The tip of not talking to hostages is the most important.

    PARAcainThank you, this one took me 20+ minutes of searching after clearing everyone. My last guy was in the graveyard to the left of the church
