  3. What counts as detection?

Doing a ghost playthrough, and my question concerns civilians only. Doing the second mission and I was in that little area with the sad chick putting an unconscious guard out of rat reach, and suddenly some other civilian dude comes running in and starts cowering in a corner and she does the same. Would that count?

The game makes a noticeable sound when your fully detected. Also, look at the enemies heads, if their lightning bolts go red then you were detected. Even if they go all the way up to the 3rd level you're good until they go red.

Alright, I knew about the enemies, just wasn't sure if civilians triggered anything with their panic mode. 'Tis good to know, thank you.

np, do you have the dark vision skill? That skill shows your sound waves, so that way you can see how much noise your making and if the enemies can hear you or not.

Question about kills now. Rats. I opened a door and a swarm ran out and killed and ate two guards. Is that against me?

Still debatable. No one can know until someone confirms it when they get the achievement.

I'm still doing a side mission for said mission, I'll update this topic when I finish the mission on whether I killed people or not.

Ive wondered the same as I've been in areas with civilians and just walking they start saying theres a prowler loose?
Huh? What was that, as Im walking passed them to talk to another NPC.
Very sloppy if those count.
Hell, Ive been in areas, idling in the corner getting a drink or helping kids with something and i hear them go off about a prowler being around.

Those don't, but it always makes me paranoid, wondering if I missed something lol. Like the mission I just finished, after getting rid of Campbell I exit the room and the guards are on guard saying they'll find someone, and one guard who was at the window suddenly runs to pull the alarm (had to dispose of that guard). I assume that was from Curnow escaping, but it scared the crap out of me since I'm also trying to Ghost.

What if the game makes that detected sound but the lightning bolts don't go fully red. So would that still count?
