    You can get this as early as your first dock on Groundbreaker, you’ll need at least 40 points in either Lie, Intimidate or Persuade.

    Make sure you grab the holographic shroud from the captain’s quarters before you leave your ship.

    On the main promenade, on the left hand side, is a medical suite. (Where you first meet companion Ellie)

    Past the reception desk is a ward with a few beds. At the back on a table is a Mardet ID cartridge. Pick it up then walk through the restricted door. Walk around in this room (there should be a person or two) until your shroud meter depletes. When it happens one of the people will walk up and ask you what you’re up to. Use lie, Intimidate or Persuade on them, and they’ll walk off, and your meter will be reset.

    Repeat another two times for the cheevo! The shroud meter has three little boxes at the end to show you how many dialogues you’ve passed.

    You MUST do this with one disguise - don’t leave the room and come back, just drain the meter and it will refill each tome you ass the dialogue. The final one requires a skill of 40 to pass.

    SlendersonIn case anyone doesn't want to try Groundbreaker, I achieved this on Monarch at the heavily guarded C&P Boarst Factory. I just walked into the guarded area and did a dialogue save to get in which then materialized my disguise. I then just explored the immediate area inside the gate until my disguise wore off and then walked back to the front gate guards. Dialogue save, rinse and repeat. Cheevo popped after the third encounter that needed a double dialogue save.

    Apostle92627I ended up with the paranoid flaw, which was the last flaw I needed for Flawed Hero.

    - Must have one of these 3 Skills to at least 40
    [ LIE ] - [ INTIMIDATE ] - [ PERSUADE ]


    - Now go to The Groundbreaker and just before the market area on the left you'll see the "Security" area with a "RESTRICTED ACCESS" sign in the doorway

    - Use your "Shroud" automatically (as long as you have a Key Card) by entering that area, now just run around until your purple bar is depleted and one of the "guards" comes to talk to you

    - Tell him/her to f**k off and repeat that process 2 more times w/o leaving the area and you will unlock this achievement!

    In this video guide I will show you how to succeed at dialog conversation checks with a single disguise. Going through the game you will automatically get an item called: Shroud. With this you will find disguises throughout the game to be able to enter restricted access areas. You will know if you have the right one for an area when your in the restricted area and have a purple bar on the bottom of the screen.

    Now once you have the right disguise for the area you are trying to get the achievement. Simply keep walking around to diminish the bar. You will notice three small boxes next to the purple bar on the right. These are your chances at dialog before running out. You will need to have some points into the lie, persuade, and intimidate skills to be more successful at talking your way out of all three. Once you get caught the third time and convince them your not doing anything the achievement will pop.
