Help, can't get the Master Criminal achievement.

I already posted this in the cheevo guide thread but i think more people can read my problem this way.

I tested everything: killed a mass of people in every settlement, kill only one weak person triggering the slay animation for clean 1000 bounty .... and don't get it anyway. Seems bugged to me.

Noticed i have from before two small bounties -payed- in Riften for 7 gold in total: 2 for stole per accident when i pretend speak to a merchant (LoL) and 5 for gettin' caught lockpicking. I dunno if this is something related to the problem, but i need hepl, plz.

If someone has the same problem, tell here.

Thanks and sorry for my bad english.
Cheers.

Thanks for asking.
I'm no rookie to these type of games, my total time between characters in TESO is far more than 1000 hours LoL. I'm used to these games and check everything in status stages.
OffTopic: in the status screen there's an indicator of how many ˇˇrabbits!! have you slain.
maybe some big red rabbit appears to take revenge when you kill enough small rabbits, like in Divinity 2?

See, I have the game in PAL, spanish, and in the crime status screen, in the bounty stats only appears two options: total bounty gold in a life and max bounty in a zone. It's all.
No sepparation of bounties for cities one by one or so...

I already have a two payed bounties for 7 gold in total:
- one for being caught lockpicking in Riften jail -blame that dark elf raised by argonians: 5 gold.
-Other bounty of ˇ2 gold! and I don't exactly remember when earned it.
I believe it's for picking a item per accident when I pretend speak to Vex, the woman in white hair in Thieve's Guild, but i'm not sure.
I check that a bounty for steal it's 12 gold, so it doesn't make sense to me.

f you commit a crime in the hold, check your crime stats and above total bounty it should say (hold name) bounty ie the pale 1040, do that in all 9 HOLDS not necessarily towns, altho the big towns obviousy make it easier to track.

i did the following:
Saved my game. killed 1 person in whiterun in front of guards or witnesses, then pegged it till i could fast travel to another town, then repeated until all 9 were done. cheevo popped at the 9 th town so hopefully it hasnt glitched for you guys.
after that reload ur save and carry on as normal. minus any accrued bounties and with an extra cheevo ! (hopefully)

hope thaht helps a bit

That's exactly one way of killing i've done, the other was slaying cheap people with the animation for clean 1000 without the 40 for simple attack.
Doesn't work on both strategies for me.

By the way i get pursued by two or three bounty hunters but they don't attack me until I commit another crime in another area. Is this normal?

Did you try just killing the hold guards? That would seem to do the trick, quick and easy

just tried it again in 3 ways:
-clean 1k bounty
-1040 bounty
- so much that I even cant count it (massacre all the things..)

none of it worked =/
most frustrating part is: this is the last missing achievement I have right now..
so please, if anybody has an idea how to fix it or what could have gone wrong: tell me!

what i did was just be seen transforming into a werewolf due to it being an automatic 1000 bounty and ran off but sometimes it doesnt register so just check your stats screen and if all 9 holds dont say 1000 just go to the hold you missed and try to do that

No one knows if there is some way to fix this without having to wait for a patch (if it ever comes...)?
I have the same problem about the hold bounties not appearing in the "Crime" inside the "General Stats" tab on ps3, PAL Spanish version.

i must admit i never had any issiues with this, must be lucky i guess.

All i did was kill the 1st person i came across in a town (be it person, guard etc) then legged it away till i could fast travel to the next town, then repeated for the other 8. i did it al in 1 go (takes 10 mins max lol) and didnt save in between.

Dont really know what else to say, my bounty in each hold was 1040 (im guessin 40 for assault and 1000 for the murder.)

Remember if you kill someone it has to be witnessed to be a crime lol

I even made a separate save file after the second try just to be sure that i have everything right, i killed so much guards at the nine holds...
My lifetime bounty on that save became over 270k septims, still none of the holds show up on the crime tab so that's most than likely the source of the problem.

2 hours were lost in that slaughter spree, dozens of kids wouldn't be able to rise with a father/mother or even both of them as i killed every guard in the holds, but fear not, as they seem to respawn way faster than mobs, in about a minute or less.

Your right it's a huge bug that can't be fixed unless they patch it

it wont occur on the uk version of the games explains why only 20 odd people or so only have 1000 so far

Same for me in France. Tried everything, 3 times in each Hold, and I don't have the different holds option in the stats page, just total and max bounty, which caps at 7140, whatever I do and where.

I have a North American game and it is not registering on my character either. Went to each city and killed guards till I could fast travel. No dice.

I don't think the American version is glitched. If you kill everyone the bounty will be removed with no witnesses. I would check your stats page to make sure they still say your bounty is over 1000.

Well, I gained over 5k in bounties in each hold as far as the stats tell me and no luck. Had no problems with achievements in this game till now. Went and unlocked a few different ones just to make sure they were working and still no pop for the bounty in each hold.

They don't even care, in all honesty. They don't even try to seem like they care.

I got this achievement by killing a guard in each hold, my copy is North America. Sometimes if you kill a guard and then your being chased by someone and end up killing them it will say that you killed the witness and remove the bounty from your head. That could be why you can't get it maybe in one of the holds you thought you got the bounty but maybe you killed off the witness? It's also possible for this persuer to be killed inadvertantly because they fall of a cliff etc as well.

If not I'd say just do another run on each hold on a different save.

Ok, I went back and tried again. Ran the same path through the cities, except this time I made sure I killed a completely innocent towns person and made sure lots of people could see me do it. Achievement popped when I killed a local in Windhelm. Thanks for all the help!!!

So the bounty has to be active in all 9 holds at one time? You can't do 1,000 in one, pay it off and then do another and repeat that?

Yup, bounty has to be active in all holds at once. Don't pay them off if you want the achievement.
