***EDIT: My final number for silent kills is not the maximum achieveable number for the game. It is guideline as to what I was able to achieve. As some of the comments would indicate, you can score more silent kills if you have patience and skill. And a lot of restarts. I recommend you look at the comments if you fall behind my pace in order to catch up.

I would classify my patience and skill as average and my patience started to wane by the end of this game. That should give you an indication as to what is required to get this achievement.

If you are able to improve upon my numbers, i encourage you to leave a comment. ***

Since the original link is no longer valid, I decided to put together a solution. The focus of this guide is to highlight the guards which are silently killable and give you an idea of the progress you should be making. I was able to get 229 silent kills, 25 from morphine. Hopefully, this guide will highlights the easy silent kills and save you from having to go after the difficult silent kills.

This solution is not a game walkthrough. It will not tell you when to run, when to turn, when to hide or the patterns of guards. It is just an indiciation of what is achieveable. I recommend you pick up some collectibles and upgrade your morphine.

I listed my results and there is some room for error, but not much. I list the total enemies in the level, kills and silent kills for the level and running total of kills and total silently kills.

Level 1(4): 4 and 4, (4 and 4)
Level 2(20): 20 and 18 (24 and 22)
Level 3(29): 22 and 22 (46 and 44)
Level 4(22): 21 and 18 (67 and 62)
Level 5(37): 36 and 34 (103 and 96)
Level 6(39): 34 and 19 (137 and 115)
Level 7(22): 22 and 18 (159 and 133)
Level 8(25): 23 and 16 (182 and 149)
Level 9(26): 26 and 20 (208 and 169)
Level 10(32): 29 and 17 (237 and 186)
Level 11(39): 37 and 26 (274 and 212)
Level 12(49): 47 and 17 (321 and 229)

Here is a short breakdown for each level:

Level 1: The first 3 guards are silently killable and the last guard has to be killed using morphine.

Level 2: The first 16 guards silently killable without morphine until you plant the bomb. You can get 2 of the last 4 with morphine.

Level 3: All the guards are silently killable until you climb the ladder in front of the church. Then there are 4 guards that aren’t killable silently, 4 that are and then another 6 that aren’t. I used morphine to get 3 of those 10.

Level 4: All enemies are killable silently until the last 5 in the section with Schuntzel. I was able to get 1 of 5 with morphine but I used morphine earlier in the level that could have been saved for the end.

Level 5: The only enemies that aren’t silently killable are the 3 guards after you lower the crane. I used morphine to get 2 of those 3.

Level 6: All enemies are killable silently until you get outside to the big area with the truck. I used morphine to bail myself out and I grew frustrated in the first section and used a headshot to make a distraction. I was able to get 2 morphine kills on the guards that aren’t killable silently.

Level 7: All enemies are killable silently except for the two in the location of the last agent and the 5 in the final room. The 7 I listed may be killable silently if you are patient but I was not. Of those 7, I got 2 morphine kills and 1 silent kill which alerted the guards.

Level 8: The first 6 guards are silently killable, although the last one is a tricky lure and I used morphine. The next 4 may be possible but I was unsuccessful on countless attempts. I just pulled the grenade pin to wipe out 3 and use morphine on the last. The next 5 are silently killable. The next 5 are not you can get a morphine kill. The final 3 are killable silently.

Level 9: The 10 enemies in the dining hall and in the prison are not killable silently. However, you can get 6 of 10 with morphine. You will need to leave some of them alive as you get some of the morphine after the prison and dining hall sections. You can backtrack for the kills. I only got 4 of 10 and I was left with 2 morphine when I finished the level.

Level 10: You can get 5 silent kills before you get on the boat. If you don’t put on the SS uniform, you can get 3 of the next 5 silently, 1 silent and 2 morphine. Inside the hotel, you can get 5 silent kills. From there, there are only 3 easy silent kills (the next one in the courtyard, one leading to the secret area and the one in the boathouse). There are a few silent kills to be had but they take a lot of work and I don’t recommend it. You can get a couple morphine kills

Level 11: All enemies are killable silently until you get a weapon, but be warned some of the areas are tricky and frustrating. And there is no morphine in this level. If you have been following the guide, you will have the achievement halfway through the level.

Level 12: The first 13 guards are killable silently but it will require work. Of the next 8, only 5 are killable silently. Then the last 20+ guards are not.
