Silent Kill is an achievement in The Evil Within.


This achievement is unlocked by killing 5 enemies in a row with Sneak kills in any given area of the game. Being detected or killing an enemy by any other means in between Sneak kills will reset the counter.


  • Using bottles and Flash Bolts will void the achievement progress despite both opening enemies up for a Sneak kill. Flash Bolts may not cause progress to wipe if deployed without being seen, however.
  • Killing enemies with Axes or the Brass Knuckles also void the achievement progress due to them not being counted as Sneak kills.
  • Burning enemies playing dead with matches also resets the kill counter.


  • Abusing checkpoint restarts can help with this achievement if there are Stealth kill opportunities close to the save point.
