like many of gamers was gutted yesterday from no pop for realistic
got mine now and did the following....

checked all levels were realistic complete

deleted cache

redid the last 2 levels only - realistic by scene select (helicopter crash leads to streets and white house)

achievement popped before credits

looked on all forums yesterday and everyone saying goto play whole game again as did last level and didnt pop. so just tried last 2 levels and seemed to work for me

hope it works for you to

Hehe, I saw you were holding off completing the whole game on Realistic again. Smart move. ^^


I'm on the last level, hopefully my game doesn't glitch. If it does, I'll give this a try. Nice find.

EDIT: Completed it, and it popped first time. What an epic little ending. :P

Im going to try this now.

EDIT: WOOHOO it works good one HERO!

Im furious about it not unlocking. The game really isnt that good and I dont want to replay the whole game again. In fact I dont want to play any of it ever again.

cheers guys didnt want to play all through game but thought get hardest 2 levels, well last 2 anyway out the way if didnt work atleast those to are gone

yes you play offline. when update pops up say no. if u already completed it, the last 2 levels should take about and hour max.

Thanks for the tip!

I thought I would test this last two level method, but without deleting the cache. I can confirm that it worked for me just by replaying the last two levels in sequence.

Goto scene select and choose Downtown District on realistic. Play from that point until the end and it will pop before the credits. No need for deleting cache or offline play.

Please could someone else test this and confirm it works for them too.

Has anyone had the Realistic Co-op achievement glitch on them?

I'm more than certain I've completed the co-op story on realistic difficulty (have the four mission related achievements), but no achievement for completing it on realistic.

So i tryed this online without clearing cache and IT WORKED +) Very nice thx.

Now im thinking it must be the fact that I reloaded the last checkpoint the first time I beat the game to get both the kill and save achievements that glitched it ... But who knows .

Nice. Its not related to reloading the checkpoint after the kill/save choice as I made sure to only choose one of them and then complete the game, but the realistic completion still didn't pop. Its something to do with that previous level I think.

I had to redo mine but it popped early. Just as I entered The White House.

So I followed the directions below and it still didn't pop:


All levels cleared on Realistic.
Cleared cache.
Did not update & played offline.
Started at the 2nd to last level and beat the last to levels nonstop.
No Poppage


Any ideas?

Omg. This just happened to me too..

I redid the whole game on Realistic without ever updating and it still didn't pop.

Not sure mate. Only thing I did differently to you was like Weffa said, I didn't touch my cache. I backed my original save up first just in case and played the last 2 levels through in one sitting and it popped just before the end credits. Although it's a pain, try doing that WITH the patch on and I think you'll find it works.

WOOT IT WORKED.

I redid the entire thing without patch on realistic.. no achievement

Redid last two levels. POP.

Oh and I didnt clear my cache I just did the last two levels on Realistic.

This is a strange one when I originally played through on realistic the U-play achieve poped but not the regular I'm going to try this method tonight . . .

OK just played through on the last two levels on realistic and the acheeve popped just before the cutscene with Vic talking about family.

I DID NOT clear my cache just restarted . . .

From what I have been reading on this forum and others it sounds like anyone that restarted the check point to either kill or spare Tom Reed caused this glitch for themselves. I did this as well and I'm pretty sure that's what caused it . . .
All good now!

Can I get the Realistic Achievement by only playing the last 2 levels on Realistic difficulty and not playing all the other levels at all. I beat the game on normal already.

I got mine first time of completing the game, but my brother didnt.
Do you think it matters if you kill him or not on finishing the game?
I let him live the time I got it

Time 2 start the whole game on realistic now hehe. Hopefully i havent got this problem :)

My dilemma is that I didn't restart the checkpoint to kill Tom Reed & I still didn't get the achievement. My problem is probably related to the fact that earlier on in the game, I was having difficulty beating a certain level on Realistic, so I moved the difficulty down to the lowest just because I was aggravated. After I beat the mission, I realized the stupidity of the option I had just chosen, SO.....I went back and tried my hardest and FINALLY beat the mission on Realistic. I continued playing on that save & finished out the campaign. I have all the levels beaten on Realistic, yet still no achievement. I know the general consensus is to replay the last 2 missions on realistic, but I was thinking, that really doesn't relate to the mistake I made. Im being lazy & not wanting to try this. My thought is that i'm going to have to replay the campaign on realistic from where I stopped the first time to lower the difficulty. if you guys have any advice for me, I'm all ears.

P.S. sorry for the inconvenience of reading this long and drawn out reply. I just figured I had a unique situation compared to the others on this forum.

thanks again

We’re working hard on eliminating the bug that is preventing people from getting the “Realistic Difficulty” achievement for Splinter Cell Conviction (Complete Single Player Story on Realistic Difficulty).

While we can’t discuss timing right now we can confirm that this issue will be fixed in the next title update for SCC.

The fix will automatically detect if you’ve already finished the game on Realistic difficulty and award you with the missing achievement. This means you will not need to play through the single-player campaign a second time after the update comes out, it’ll all be handled automatically.

We apologise for any inconvenience this may have caused and thank you for your patience while we work to resolve this issue.

Damn It!!

First time through the achievement didn't pop, but U-PLAY did!
Last night I played through the last 2 levels, online without clearing cache,
and it popped after I killed Reed.

The auto-detect is a nice touch though!
More developer's need to employ this for glitchy achievements!

Hello all...I have tried clearing my cache and playing the last two levels, as well as not clearing my cache, installing the update, and playing the last two levels. Still no pop. Any suggestions? Does it have anything to do with killing Tom Reed/letting him live?

I originally did beat it all the way through on Realistic. However, no pop. Then I tried clearing the cache and playing last two, no pop. Re-installed the update, played the last two, no pop. I want to trade this game back in and it's the last achievement I need!!! HELP

I played the entire gameb on realistic and the achievement didn't pop up.

The 40G Uplay achievement did!

I hope ubi fix this issue as soon as possible. I don't want to play entire game on realistic again... Even the 2 last chapters...
