--- First achievement of the Leviathan DLC, MISSABLE ---

In the first room you can control Shepard, you need to search for clues for the system you need to go to, and enable/disable found clues on a galaxy map interface. Simple point-and-click around the house. After you have narrowed it down to five or three, you can leave the place. Do NOT leave yet! (If you did leave but didn't complete the first combat mission, you can return and still get this) You need to narrow it down to one. There are 6 filters total, and of those you need the following:

Reaper Activities ON
Prothean Activity OFF
Element Zero ON
Rachni Activity OFF
Blackout Crimes OFF
Creature Sightings ON

(you don't actually need to find those that are set to off, but it can't really be avoided if you touch everything with orange brackets on it)

All of these are really simple to find by point-and-click, reaper activities is the only slightly more cryptic one. For this you need an encryption key for a datapad, which is found upstairs in a drawing by the scientist's daughter. When you have it, go click on the datapad again.

The complete map will end up looking like this:

...which tells us Dr. Bryson keeps his galaxy map upside down, since it's really nowhere near there in Normandy's galaxy map.

Update:
There is another similar scene in the DLC later on, and it might also be a possible trigger for this achievement, if you missed it in the beginning. Needs further info to confirm though.
Nope, doesn't work. Thanks sirbradenwalker!
Disturbed XBAGood guide, I'd advise putting in bold and capitals that it is missable.

ananasnaamaI was able to return in the room after leaving (left Citadel and returned), but before completing the next objective. I don't know yet if you can return after completing the whole DLC though. Need to check it out.

sirbradenwalkerNarrowed it down to one system the 2nd time you are in the lab and it didn't pop. Thankfully I have multiple characters.

Hirsute DaveThe safest way to get it just seems to poke everything and methodically trawl through every room until you find it all. And EDIs dialog is worth the time anyway :)

PrimeBigTimeGood guide, I voted positively but it would be much better if you stated where all the clues were. Took me forever to find the Reaper Activities because I didn't know you had to go back to the pictures.

ChiefMeleeI found all 6 and activated them all before I left, but it didn't pop. I thought once I found Leviathan it would pop, but no. Luckily I created a save in each location of the DLC in case something like this happened. I'll go back to the lab and try it again, activating only the ones you designated.

ananasnaamaYou can also use any save you have before you trigger endgame or start this dlc (i did saves after every priority mission back in Normandy), so while it's technically possible to overwrite all your savefiles, it's really hard to mess up the whole career in regards to this achievement.

xxCATACLIZMxxThis worked really nice, but you will need to save because the achievo is glitchy.

W8taminute1941Great guide, got it on my first try thanks to you. Finding the clues is not too hard but having the right filter settings on the map is key. Your guide really helped with getting the key. I voted positive.
