    Note: I read on another site and just re-posted it. I got this achievement by actually playing through and ending the game at just under $60k damage.

    Another solution is to beat the game on any setting. Then start a new game on a memory card and get to the first level (not the training level) and save after the first checkpoint. Then load up your HDD game and go straight to the final boss. Pause the game and go to options and select your memory card as the storage device, and presto, your money has been reset to $0 and you are at the final boss. Enjoy!

    I am aware that this may reset your artifacts and paranormal scans. In order to avoid this please make a copy of your saved game to a memory card or usb drive before proceeding.

    BahaumautFrom what I can tell: The act of creating a new save file is what wipes out your artifacts and ghost scans. If you save to a new file, the tracking of those, and possibly water fountains, is gone. Zip. Boom. Once you dashboard, then reload your real save, the damage is already done. And your save will still have the damage counts under financial records.

    So, new file = loss of ghost and artifact data.

    OperativeEmeralIt’s probably worth noting that this method won’t work on the Xbone.

    (Note all you're ghost scans and artifacts will be gone if you do this achievement, so you might aswell leave this one to be one of you're last campaign acheivement) thnks to RitzOmega for noticing that I forgot to mention this major detail.
    1) Beat the game any difficulty save it on your normal hard drive.
    2) Load up Ghostbusters from the dashboard, load the Cloud Drive.
    Start a new game and play till you capture the glutten ghost after
    slimer to get a checkpoint save.
    3) Load up your normal save file on your hard drive so you can load
    the last level with the final boss.
    4) Go to the start menu, then options so you can change your hard
    drive, change it to your cloud save file and then you should have under
    10,000 and your achievement after you beat the boss.

    This really isn't going to be very easy. That said I have several tips that should help greatly.

    -It's best to go for the Destructor achievement before this one. Doing a run through for that achievement first will give you a good clue as to what counts as causing property damage and the value of it.

    -Only attempt this on the casual difficulty setting. This allows you to rely on your teammates to handle most everything whenever they are around.

    -Your teammates can destroy objects, but any damage caused by them doesn't count against your total. Try to avoid shooting any debris though as sometimes it will still count against you.

    -Try only to focus on ghosts when there is nothing destructible behind it. Let your teammates handle any ghosts near objects.

    -If you make a big mistake, you'll have to quit to the dashboard to take away the amount of damage. (thanks to those in the comments for correcting me)

    -Get fast trapping and slam trapping upgrades as soon as possible. The quicker you can get rid of the ghosts, the less likely something can go wrong.

    -Be extremely careful while in Times Square (particularly around the cars) and in the Museum (particularly in the Civil War exhibit). These areas can add to your damage totals extremely quickly.

    -If ghosts are directly in front of you on the ground, normally it is safe to shoot down at the ghost's feet.

    -While in Times Square, if the ghosts are far above your head, it is normally safe to shoot the sides of buildings at least allowing you to damage the ghosts. (Thanks to TheRickMoranis for reminding me of this)

    -Once you get the slime tether, this should become your favorite friend. This allows you to instantly trap ghosts without weakening them. It also allows you to trap while guaranteeing to not cause damage. This is a great help during the Civil War segment of the Museum.

    -Once you beat the museum level and go to island, you can open up freely. Damage from that point to the end of the game no longer counts against you. You also get a short area like this while in the ghostworld version of the library earlier in the game.

    Tm5kI can confirm you do not need to dashboard if you mess up. Quitting to the main menu before your next checkpoint will wipe out any damage you've done since your last saved checkpoint.

    WarFox45Just got this by pure luck,finished up at 89,000,even though i let the computer do a lot of the work,the most damage caused seems to be in the museum so try to do as little as possible.
