In Episode 1, in the Citadel core there are 2 stalkers. They fire a laser at the energy ball receptacles, resetting them. All you need to to get the achievement is not kill them for your convenience. Sounds easy right? Well, it actually is.

Generally, at any given point in the room only 2 receptacles are within your view. You need these two to activate the bridges between the islands. Once you know your targets, quickly grab an energy ball and fire it into a receptacle and then quickly grab another and fire it into the other one. Now dash across the bridge.

The stalkers will ignore you there, so no worries about your safety. Repeat as needed.

Please note that these are the only 2 you don't have to kill at all. The rest you can go nuts on.
APB PlaysAchievement seems a little glitchy - I got all the way through without killing the stalkers and got nothing. I'll have to run through it again, see if I have better luck the second time.

DL CyberSkullHuh. I got it my first time and I'm fairly sure I killed every other stalker I could find.

Cutler SheridanBefore getting too frustrated with trying to do this without killing them I tried a couple of times and one time the first stalker DID attack me with his laser vision.

DL CyberSkullDid you touch it or do anything provocative? They never attacked me as far as I recall for this section.

DrumstiknikDoes anyone if the invicibility cheat affects the pop? I know it doesn't in HL2 but I wasn't sure about the episodes.

Odog1234The invincibility cheat shouldn't affect anything
