  • Steven Chapman's photo was used for the Self Defense achievement as he would have been the first psychopath defeated by following only the cases and not the scoops.
  • Despite being classified as psychopaths, Carlito Keyes, Isabela Keyes, and the True Eye cultists do not count towards the Self Defense achievement.
  • Although not advised, this achievement can be first received during Cut From the Same Cloth call with Kent on the first day. After receiving the mission call from Otis, listen to Kent's camera tutorial, and then kill Kent. Only do this if you are not going for the "Saint" Achievement.
