For this achievement, you can only tranquilize or knock out enemies. The Mk22, Mosin Nagant, EZ Gun, stun grenades, and CQC are your main tools.

Doing this on easy or very easy will give the EZ Gun, a tranquilizer with infinite ammo, a suppressor that never degrades, infinite ammo, and just holding it boosts stamina and camo index. This alone should be enough to get you through the game. On higher difficulties, this must be unlocked by achieving the rank of Markhor, or in this case the achievement King of the Jungle.

Another item that would help, assuming you have it already, is the stealth item awarded for shooting all Kerotan frogs in one playthrough. Between the stealth item and the EZ Gun, a playthrough can be completed on Normal in about 3-4 hours.

It's been confirmed that you have to stamina-kill Volgin when he's riding the Shagohod, even though there's no camo reward for it. It has also been confirmed that you can kill The End by waiting a week.

In the motorcycle chase scenes, it is acceptable to tranq the soldiers chasing you, even if doing so sends them flying off a motorcycle at top speed to their inevitable death.

If you do end up killing someone in an odd fashion, for instance punching someone out and they drown in water, keep in mind that any non-scripted death is unconfirmed. I'd recommend restarting a save in that case.
BATZMANZthis is only for MG3 right? Doesnt matter for MG2?....

GeoffistophelesOnly MGS3, yes.

fallouthirteenDoes friendly fire count? I just had a flamethrower enemy torch a regular soldier who was in the way, it killed him.

GeoffistophelesI don't know, unfortunately, but I'd be willing to bet that it doesn't count since you didn't do it yourself. Same for the sections with EVA at the end, it shouldn't count if she shoots someone. That's another section that needs confirmation as it is.

fallouthirteenNope, it doesn't count against you. Just got the achievement on that run.

SlackerchanI can also confirm that you can tranquilize the flying platform guards without it harming your progress toward the achievement.

VegiezaHaving no ghosts during The Sorrow's boss battle (except the bosses who I tranq'd, but they appear anyway) should indicate that through that point I haven't killed anyone, right? I somehow have 1 person killed after beating it...

Surely The Boss herself doesn't count either.

SinisterHistoryAll bosses must be defeated via Stamina Drain, including Volgin while he is on top of the Shagohod. I confirmed that last night, did it by shooting him with the RPG and it counted against me. Replayed and stamina defeated him and I got the achievement.

Zymotic NickDoes punching somebody out then they fall into a river count as killing them do you think?

GeoffistophelesTough to say. Based on the tranqing of the chasing guards mentioned above, I'd say no. However, I'm really not sure about that.

redjarmanDo I have to stamina kill The End? Or can I do the date-change trick to make him die of old age?
Posted by redjarman on 15 Jan 12 at 20:34
GeoffistophelesNot sure, but I don't see why not, since you didn't kill him yourself.

TrombonafideI did this with the EZ Gun. It makes PEACE WALKER trivial. The only parts that gave me any trouble were the Fear (who is frustrating with any non-lethal weapon) and the later motorcycle sections. But even those were manageable.

GeoffistophelesWith the EZ Gun, almost the whole game is trivial. However, The Fear is pretty manageable non-lethally. If you have poison tree frogs or rotten food, equip them as weapons and toss them out. Whenever he's hungry, he'll jump for them first and get sick, which both drops his stamina and lets you get a few cheap shots on him. For the motorcycle sections, I just used Volgin's Cold War camo and faced as many enemies as possible.

Tuschidoes killing animals affect this achievement?
Posted by Tuschi on 08 Feb 12 at 17:49
ASUnknown1I can't personally confirm this, but other people have said that killing animals does not count as a kill.

TerryLuddenIf I accidentally kill someone (because the game does like to switch weapons on you without warning) then die in the same section, will ot count if i restart or do i have to reload a save??? about 3/4 of the way through the game too!
Posted by TerryLudden on 09 Feb 12 at 23:24
MegamonkeymaniaTerryLudden if u go into Backpack and disable any lethal weaponry then the weapon switchining stops being a problem plus as far as i know if you save in an area upon reload the game takes you back to where you first entered, apparently this is where a lot of ppl have been having problems with collection cheevs.
Sorry if that was a bit incoherent bit drunk.
Anyway have fun.

Dazeldorffv2The part with the motorcycle chase can be made a bit easier if you put on the Camo you get from Volgin and just face them, they won't shoot at you as they won't shoot at their own flag.
Posted by Dazeldorffv2 on 10 Feb 12 at 16:15
Megamonkeymaniafinished on very easy never used anything but the ez gun and apparently i killed three people. weird. but i gotta do a camo and facepaint run anyway so try try try again.
Posted by Megamonkeymania on 12 Feb 12 at 03:08
Akinokaze HJust did a pure speedrun to try to get this and somehow ended up with 2 kills despite only using level weapons to blow up the bridge and beat the first stage of the shagohod.... what the hell.

ThunderPeel2001If you kill someone, you must restart from a SAVE, not just let Snake die and restart the area.

John S VasquezHow do I stamina-kill each Boss?

SgtScrotes310what if i kill animals?
Posted by SgtScrotes310 on 17 Jan 14 at 02:03
bobby trippeWhy would you want to kill animals? Are a you sociopath? No, they do not count but I am not sure about the guard dogs.

aCRAZYanarchistGot the achievement last night. You can stamina kill The End by waiting the week.
Posted by aCRAZYanarchist on 14 Mar 15 at 15:47
