During this mission when you return to your office for the second to time to watch a video, you will be greeted by a flying drone called January, which you can destroy by hitting or shooting it.

Note: Make sure you don’t save / continue playing the game, instead reload the last autosave from before you killed January, as to make sure January stays alive! Otherwise you won’t be able to get the January-related “I and Thou” Achievement.

42. The Gates of Hell (15G) — You completed the Shipping and Receiving objective and no human lives were lost.

Location: This can only be done in the “Shipping and Receiving” main mission, during the defense of Cargo Bay B. – In order to open the cargo bay door you must first do side mission “Cargo Bay Defenses” which has you place 3 turrets at Cargo Bay Bay B. As soon as you open the door, lots of enemies will come swarming out to attack you and the allied security officers.

Tips: During this attack, the turrets will do most of the work, but you should also throw a Nullwave Transmitter and shoot them with your shotgun. The faster the enemies die, the less risk they pose to your allies. None of the security officers are allowed to die during the defense!

It’s highly recommended that you play on easy difficulty for this (difficulty can be changed in game options at any time)! Enemies die much quicker on this difficulty. Also make a manual save game before placing the 3 turrets. This way you can retry as often as you like. You can also craft additional turrets if you have trouble.

46. Makeup Exam (15G) — You returned to the Simulation Lab and completed the tests in Rooms A, B, and C.

Tips: To get this achievement, you must have advanced far enough in the story to be able to purchase Typhon neuromods. These mods also need to be discovered. Scan enemies and you’ll get data fragments, which will let you use skills. More enemies you scan, more skills you unlock.

You need to buy the 3 basic ones in each tree for this, Those are “Kinetic Blast I”, “”Mimic Matter I” and “Remote Manipulation I”. Once you have these, head to the Simulation Labs found within the “Neuromod Division” section of Talos I.

For room A, use the kinetic blast on the blocks. For Room B, use Mimic Matter to turn into the chair. For Room C, use Remote Manipulation to press the button. If done right, all lights will be green and the achievement will unlock shortly afterwards.

47. Coffee Break (15G) — You found Dr. Calvino’s secret stash.

Location & Requirements: This can be done during the “Through a Glass Darkly” main mission that takes place in the Hardware Labs room called Dr. Calvino’s Workshop. Once inside, look for the Dr. Calvino’s Tumbler item on top of a big red toolbox. Pick it up and take it to the opposite side of the room to put it top of a little radio console to unlock Dr. Calvino’s Secret Stash.

48. Gift to the World (30G) — You found Gustaf Leitner’s Connectome for Dr. Igwe.
