Question Neither the Golden Rod or the Focusing Stone is Showing In My Inventory... Help?

Can somebody tell me exactly which Achievements I need to have completed in order for the Focusing Stone and the Golden Rod to appear in my Inventory while playing the Moon Map AS Richtofen...

The Focusing Stone won't appear on screen, only the Golden Rod.

Time Travel Will Tell is definitely necessary, not entirely sure about CotD solo or co-op. If it's confirmed somebody correct me, but I think most people are assuming it is and/or they happen to have it along with TTWT. I'll try to confirm this later today. The Richtofen player does not personally need the achievements, just the Host (possibly anybody in the party).

Having a second controller shouldn't matter, to be sure just check to see if the Astronaut is using the Host's friends list. If it is it's definitely scanning achievements too, from there it's just figuring out if the Host has the achievements.

EDIT: Scratch my doubts, CotD Easter Egg is required.

tl;dr - Call it the Xbox One or X1.

Ah I see. I recall playing in a random game where I had that but didn't know what it was then. While that does absolutely confirm that the CotD Easter Egg is required, you still will not see the Focusing Stone when you have both Easter Eggs. Only the Golden Rod will show up on the bottom of the screen when you're ready for the Moon Easter Egg (as both items get combined in Shangri-La).

When I completed Big Bang Theory, everyone in my party had the previous Easter eggs done, but nobody had the Focusing Stone in their inventory. Only Richtofen had the Golden Rod and that was it. We were able to the the Easter egg just fine with no problems, but I don't understand how that French guy has the Focusing Stone?

Thank you for your help people, I have both Easter Eggs, however my Call of the Dead Easter Egg is Solo-ed (Not the Co-Op Achievement). Hence why I wondered which Achievements were required.

Its just a matter of finding the right people for the Moon Job now :/

The Focusing stone is combined with the golden rod, but it just looks like the golden rod in your inventory. Big Bang theory can only be done online, also the easter egg from Call of the Dead must have been done Online, split screen on one xbox won't work, need two xboxs, host a room and get the easter egg, same for moon. I just figured this out, when we spawned with Richtofen, he would only have the focusing stone, looks like a golden stone next to your grenades. So again, ALL easter eggs HAVE to be done ONLINE. no system link is not online, yes split-screen multiplayer online does work. Create and host a room!
