I new I was getting close and went through the tedious task of finding what missions I had done and which were left. (Green Thumb, Clap Trap: Scrapyard, Clap Trap: Trash Coast ... Not too bad), but when I finished those last three the achievement didn't unlock.

Seeing as how I only had one line of missions left, I continued on with "Get Some Answers" ((finding Tannis) and it unlocked as soon as I spoke with her (finished THAT quest)

Anyone else experience that?

I got the achievement right after I finished the "Find ECHO Command Console" (the mission Tannis gives you right after finishing the "Get Some Answers" mission)

I'm on the "Get Some Answers" mission but I missed/can't find "Green Thumb" or
"Bandit Treasures" missions. Can someone tell me where theyre at?

The bandit treasures mission starts in Old Haven. When you first enter the area go to your left and you will see a bunch of bodies and a journal highlighted green just like a quest item.

Green Thumb quest is located in Rust Commons East. Easiest way to get there is to warp to Middle of Nowhere and head directly south and you will see some giant sunflowers growing in the water. There is a guy there who will give you a quest. You should see the "!" come up on your HUD when you are close to the dude.

the scavenger missions point you to the general area where the pieces are scattered around. Look around that area and they will all be there, google if you really can't find any of the pieces.

I've finished all the missions on this list and don't have the achievement yet. Will just keep playing and see if it pops later...

I've gone through and completed every mission, and I am currently on "Find Steele" and I haven't gotten the achievement yet. Sounds a bit buggy to me, some people get it no problem, some get it late. I'm hoping I get it after I beat the game because I have double checked like every mission.

Got this on the second time around, it only seems to count missions, not actually which missions you do.

I had 3 missions left than I started a new game with a different character. I returned after a while and finished the 3 missions but no achievement. I beat the game and done all the missions. Do I need to also finish the claptrap rescues?

This popped once "Find Steele" was completed.

Green thumb wasn't in my list, it was replaced with the machine gun scavenger and I got it after beating the final slaughter round. Go figure!

22. Up To Our Ears
42. Bandit Treasure: Three Corpses. Three Keys.
43. Bandit Treasure: X Marks The Spot

Had missed green thumb before i found tannis. Went back and did that. Took until I found ECHO Command Conosle until achievement popped.

Can you get this after beating the main questline?

Comment #35 by BongJam007
Sunday, December 09, 2012 @ 04:38:00 AM

The 3 I missed weren't prompted, you have to find them on your own: Green Thumb (just North of the Middle of No Where fast travel), Bandit Treasure (To the left and forward from the Old Haven fast travel) and the Firepower Missions (given by Marcus in one of the shops inside New Haven). Other than those 3 all other missions should have a clap trap tell you to check the various bounty boards.

If I beat the main campaign and didn't get this achievement, can I just go back and finish the missions I didn't finish in play through 1 or do I have to start playthrough 2 and play the entire game again?

Comment #37 by ext3rmiination
Friday, February 15, 2013 @ 11:11:22 AM

i was looking for all the people that would give me quests and none had any, so i went to working for the rescue claptrap in earls scrapyard and got the achievement there

Comment #38 by Triptych
Tuesday, April 02, 2013 @ 05:48:48 PM

Is there a list somewhere of all the quests in the rust commons? I have done everything I could think of, all the missions at the boards, all the ones claptrap tell me about, even the three that BongJam007 talked about, I even completed that main games story line and still no achievement D: A little help please?
