Twinkleporn? Got any pics? ;) just kidding...:nana

My friend was actually having a problem unlocking achievements yesterday, although he was playing multiplayer not campaign. He wasn't getting the kill achievements for 125 kills. He had well over 200 kills but didn't get the achievement until he got 125 in ranked matches. Weird, it worked fine for me in player matches.

Sometimes achievements won't unlock if you are not logged in correctly. That happens if your console boots to the dashboard and you start Prey before your account is registered. You play with your normal account but nothing is saved (although savegames work normally). I tried to get the 50 Team DM kills and had way over 50 when I realized this.

hummm... i dont think thats the problem because i have re-played the last level 3 times seeing if it unlocked this time. and reset xbox..... just dotn think it was that not 3 re-plays on... but thanks, that little bug screwed me up on GRAW for like an hour. (not easy to repeat a HARD level)

I had something happen like this too. But it was with DOA 4, my friend logged on with his gamertag and it gave him all the achievements that I had earned. I got them too but I thought it was funny that he got like 400 points like that.

I had the same thing happen to me today.... I was having trouble connected with people so I signed out and signed in while I was in the game... then my friend came over and we start some campaign... We beat a level and never got the achievement.... FCUK! Will it ever unlock?

If you do this your settings will NOT save.. so i restarted and my original settings came back so i think once i feel think redoing the level and do it, it will work...

ok, i had a long talk with technical support from microsoft AND with 3d REALMS.... heres the OFFICIAL workaround until its patched.

PREY's code is buggy some things can make the game invalidate the critera for achievements.. so

1) when playing make sure YOURS is the only profile signed into the game.
2) always load profile BEFORE starting game
3) NEVER have more than one pad turned on or plugged in (this makes the game not assign the achievement bacuse of NO PROFILE error.
4) make sure you manually save your game requlare, its known for crashing the autosave out, hence no achevement because its based on the autosaves progresss.

well i re-played it on my wifes account (she's the one who had the problem to begin with) anyways her account got all the achievemnts once i followed this advice.

I got hit with something last night. I was working on Prey more for fun than anything else, but I finished "Hidden Agenda", "Jen" and "Dark Harvest" and am now on "Following her". However, I never got achievement credit on the web for "Dark Harvest", though I'm almost 100% positive I had the achievement come up on my screen when I finished the level. I don't have a second controller so that wasn't it and I got credit for the other two. However, I did save and quit immediately after loading "Following Her", so it is possible that it simply didn't have a chance to update it to the web. Prey seems to be a bit on the slow side in terms of updating achievements anyway. I'll report back my findings today as to whether or not it updates...

I have the same problem as well. It seems like Prey is one level behind in terms of updating on the web. I got the achievement on my live account, but not on the web? I really hope it does not act this way when I complete the game!!!

When I logged into my XBox, I had received the achievement and it finally updated to the web. (Ironically, the web update showed me as having received the achievement on the 19th and not the 20th even though it didn't update until the 20th.)

I went through and completed the game last night and got credit for all of them up through the end of the game within a reasonable timeframe. (I think by the time the closing credits of the game were over.) So, it just seems to be something about the levels that updates rather slowly to the website. The Saviour and Secret achievements updated as quickly as with any other game that I've played thus far...

So, there is hope!

I had that happen too. It gave my other account every secret achievement I had unlocked. So now it says that account has beaten Story with every character, but the beaten Story mode once achievement is still locked :D .

Back on topic of Prey.. hopefully they will get a patch out soon to fix it. I would hate to screwed out achievements due to a glitch that should have been caught before the game was released. You would think they would test with multiple accounts.

Are you talking about the PC version, what do you mean by getting to the web...? As in updating your card or is their a site to check your kills and stuff for xbox?

A friend of mine didn't get the 250 deathmatch kills achivements until the following day. It unlocked for some reasons while we were playing team deathmatch?? How strange.
