"Clean Hands" Achievement issue, please help? (PC) *SPOILERS*

#1 Posted by XxRANGAxX (226 posts) -

Alright so I finished the game without killing anyone, I know 100% I did not kill anyone, I even went back through the mission stats and every single one said no kills and no alerts, but I didnt get the achievement, nor did I get the "Ghost" achievement, even in the mission with slackjaw and granny rags I managed to do without killing or alerting her, I put the thing in the furnace and shot her with a sleeping dart and the stats still read no alerts or kills, if anyone else has experienced this and knows where the issue lies I would really appreciate the help, thanks!

@XxRANGAxX:

Did you by chance do a no kill playthrough of any mission retroactively, ie: from the mission select screen, instead of a single continuous unbroken play through?

Because if you had a kill at any point, and then just replayed the mission later on, (after already progressing to further missions), you will not get the achievement.

Apparently when you burn Granny's cameo it puts an invisible kill on your record.

They're working on a patch for it.

@XxRANGAxX: Don't sleep dart granny. Just pickpocket the key and run like hell. Don't even bother with her at all. Secondly, assuming you've finished the game which I think you've had you will have to replay every mission from 7 on to get the achievement to pop because of how the game tracks its achievements and stats.

No, I started my no kill playthrough from the "new game" option

That Granny Rags thing seems like a bug to me. Honestly, putting a character to sleep counts as a kill? Terrible!

Not that it matters, already grabbed the achievement by doing another nonlethal playthrough this time investing in time stop as soon as I could. That ability is a money ability! You ought to get that as soon as you can I think.

Yeah -- just had that problem myself. Luckily I had a Granny Rags save on hand so not THAT much time was wasted. Now that those achievements are out of the way, it's time to KILL EVERYTHING. Shadow kill is so useful.
