Exclamation Guide To Private First Class Achievement (Assuming you have not booted up the game)

Hey Tijntjee K suggested I make a thread for this so hopefully more people will not end up passing the chance to gain this achievement I know its already posted in the "Private First Class Achievement Bug" but you have to scroll though quite a few pages to find it so this should make it easier for people

Basically I came across the way to gain this achievement even if you have already played Vegas 1.

You require 2 controllers and that's about it now since I'm useless at guides I'll just post one up that I thought explained it well.

If you have not played RS Vegas 2 yet and/or haven't accepted the message for the bonus exp, this will work for you too.

1. When you first put the game in, sign in as a completely different gamertag on controller 1.
2. Then, sign in as your own gamertag on controller 2. You'll notice that you don't get the bonus exp message.
3. Play splitscreen terrorist hunt, controlling your gamertag and just leaving the other controller, getting a friend to help, or switch back and forth.
4. Depending on your skill, the difficulty and some other factors you can get up to Private First Class in no time.
5. You'll get the achievement, so just turn off your 360, turn it back on and sign in as yourself on controller 1 and you'll get the 2500 exp and equipment bonuses on top of the exp you earned before and have your Private First Class achievement over with.
6. Make your guy all black, with a flight helmot, ballistic face mask and a balaclava and represent yo!
Hopefully this has helped out and really hope Ubi fix this bug for those who have missed the chance.

i havent played the game yet, ive just got a quick question. how much of R6V1 did you have to play to get the new reward, also can you check to see if you are offered it and the turn off the console if you are fast enough to not recieve it?

I believe you get 2500 Bonus XP if you managed to beat RS6V1 on Realistic or gained the rank of Elite and you get 1250 for just having played it.

Either one pushes you over Private First Class.

Not 100% sure if you can see if your offered the reward then turn the console of without accepting, I would just go get the achievement anyways to make sure you don't miss it

hey, thanks for the help. i was going to get the game yesterday but its sold out ( i know i should of Preordered it). ill be doing this method, better be safe then sorry. For the people that missed the achev, could a update fix it, so the achev just unlocks when the turn it on after a update? or is the problem more complex

Depends Really, I guess the Devs could add some where in the Code that checks what rank you are when you first go past the title screen and if you don't have the PFC achievement and you are past the rank it would award you the achievement.

Dammit. Wish that I didn't just rush into the game like that, now I have to hope they patch it.

People should be able to play games without having to fear starting them up and losing a chance to play an achievement.

Yeah, I hope they patch this. I missed the achievement. It's a bummer too, since I never really played adversal in the first one, and I didn't plan on it in this one (although it looks like I might) and most of the achievements are there. So not being able to have one of the simple ones is a killer.

Private 2nd Class is one rank below Private 1st class, so keep on working at it. I played a few terrorist hunt missions myself in order to rank up and get the achievement. It shouldn't take too long, but it all depends on your skill.

What I did with this was played CQB Training on Realistic then I go to the right and up the ladder then I use the second controller up the ladder too to watch my own back.

it seems like as soon as you both get up there a few guys come into the ladder area so throw a grenade and you should easily get a few kills and then look over the balcony throw a nade at the ones near the car on the right almost around the corner and more should rush you.

Rinse dry and repeat as you get 10 exp per kill and you should unlock one of the assault levels in no time also giving you some exp.

Whatever happened to Testing the game before you release it? Quality Assurance failed to realize that you can't get the achievement if you've played the previous game, honestly now how much are you paying these guys?

Was thinking of a way to get without restarting. Do you think this would work?

Get a mate to recover your gamertag on his 360 and that way it shouldnt be your gamesave so when he starts rainbow on his console with your tag it should go to the beginning and you could use the method in this thread. You can do the same for him and then just recover your own tags again and hopefully your will have the achievement but be back to you gamesave with the higher rank you had

nevermind just read another thread and a dude already tried something like that but the rank etc is linked to gamertag and not just throught a gamesave

Good to know , unless like me you got it on release and its all too little too little .Its 10G and not worth worrying about . Im sure the gamer community will forgive those that dont get the achievement , after all it was Ubisoft who robbed you of it. Thieves !! I would swap it for the elite achievement anyday
