You will get this achievement for "defeating" Theodore.

I got this psycho mission on day 3 (if I remember correctly it's during chapter 5).
You will get a call and a side mission which tells you to investigate a mansion/residence - it's the big one in the upper right corner of the map.

Defeating him is quite easy because you don't need to fight him at all. After a cut scene in the mansion you'll be attacket by mini-helicopters - ignore them.
Run to the locked door and try to get in to activate your next targets - the security boxes.
You'll get markers for the locations of the security boxes. Destroy them and the locked door will open.

After entering the door and another cut scene your achievement should unlock!

Dr Tinus NL I did this last night, and no achievement -____-

LizardKingv666 Oh man, seems that DR3 is a glitchy mess. As you can see from the votes the solution is correct. I have issues with two achievements from DLC No3. I read so many different reports on glitchy achievements in this game - it seems to be quite random in this game. Take a look at - maybe there is a solution for this glitch in the DR3 forum. I'll let you know when i find something.

LizardKingv666 Ahh ok. This happened a lot. You dont get the achievement notification on the screen but it unlocks in your list. Good thing that you got it!!

A Batwoman Do you have to play til a certain point in Chapter 5? I have to chapter select because I need the key for the armory for a frank statue last one I need. All I got is the yoga studio when I loaded chapter 5 right away.

LizardKingv666 Yes you have to Progress a bit through chapter 5 and then you will get the call for this Psycho Mission. (I also had to do this again because of the key for the frank statue)

A Batwoman Yeah I did it a week ago thanks though for pointing out the chapter. I needed a tragic event in there thought it was a frank statue. I also had to do some of the main story again for the guy to show up. Now for 200,000 kills yeah that's insane. I'll just get the DLC someday to do that.

redjarman I'm so mad I had to look up the guide for this. I've been conditioned that if I see a door that says "locked" on it, I don't bother trying to open it. Of course, the ONE TIME you're supposed to, I just run around like a moron for 15 minutes looking for a key

LizardKingv666 Hey redjarman!! That's the main reason I put up this guide :) I was running around just like you did. Thx for the comment!!

PickAxPete Is it just me, or are the psychopaths really easy to beat in this game? I've beaten every one so far on my first try.

The game itself seems really easy too. I've only died once in about 15 hours of gameplay.

LizardKingv666 You're right! I think it's okay because the fun factor in the base game is great :)

Vok 250 Thanks for this guide. I wasted about a hour doing the same thing redjarman described!
