Fallout: New Vegas Achievements

Making Friends

Reactivate all of the Sink's robotic assistants.  

This is the only achievement in DLC that is not required to complete it. Also note that you can return and complete this after the completion of the main story line.

The quest related to this achievement is All My Friends Have Off Switches. Here is a quick run through:

  • Start out by installing the Sink Central Intelligence Unit which is given to you in the conversation at the start of the DLC with the Think Tank. Please note that in order to install any other chips you need to install this one first.
  • Sink Project - Sink is located in the caverns of the magnetohydraulics complex
  • Sink Project - Auto-Doc is located in the complex Y-17 medical facility.
  • Sink Project - Biological is located in the Research Station in the X-22 botanical garden.
  • Sink Project - Jukebox is located in the House #108 of Higgs Village.
  • Sink Project - Book Chute is located in the House #101 of Higgs Village.
  • Sink Project - Light Switch 01 is located in the X-2 transmitter antenna array.
  • Sink Project - Light Switch 02 is found hidden away inside the Big MT north tunnel.
  • Sink Project - Muggy is found stashed on a truck just outside the Securitron de-construction plant.
  • Sink Project - Toaster is found just inside of The Cuckoo's Nest.
  • Return to the Sink and install your mods. The achievement is yours along with a much better Sink!

This just requires you to reactivate them and not fully upgrade them right? Cause there's like 6 more holotapes you'd have to find for the Autodoc and that would be a big ol bitch

@#'s 3 and 4, the achievement does not require you to fully upgrade each assistant, only to get each ones holotape.
After installing the central intelligence unit the rest of the holotapes can be found as follows:
Toaster = Cuckoos nest
Muggy = Securitron De-construction plant (Outside in military truck)
Auto-Doc = Y-17 Medical facility
Jukebox = #108 in Higgs village
Book chute = #101 also in Higgs village
Biological research station = X-22 Botanical garden
Lightswitch 1 = X-2 Transmitter Antenna Array
Lightswitch 2 = In Big MT North tunnel

Just had some trouble trying to find the Sink: Sink...

Then I realised this is actually a mission and you can get markers set to their locations.

I activated all these and didnt get the achievement. The quest just says "Install the personality modules in the Sink" which I already did. Is there something else you have to do?
