    Do as few missions and assignments as possible until your search for information on Saren points you to the Med Clinic in the Ward. This occurs after you leave the Normandy for the first time, talk with Udina and the captain, then travel to Chora's Den.

    When you arrive at the Med Clinic, there will be a battle and after that you choose to let Garrus into your party. Keep him in your party throughout all missions and assignments. For optimal effect, choose a character that is stronger in assault or casting depending on your character class. Garrus is strong in electronics, so I don't recommend choosing Tali, the quarian.

    For missions see http://masseffect.wikia.com/wiki/Missions. For assignments, see http://masseffect.wikia.com/wiki/Assignments.

    You need to do all the missions. While most of these open up automatically throughout the story line, there is one tricky one that you have to hunt for first: Novario: Quarantine (http://masseffect.wikia.com/wiki/Mass_Effect_Guide#Rift_Stat...). To get this, find Dr. Zen Cohen in the medical bay at Rift Station on Novaria and talk to him about a cure. Do this mission.

    You'll need to complete around 40-45 assignments with Garrus in your party. If you fly through the missions, make a game save right before leaving the Citadel for Ilos and play a bunch of assignments to be sure. Once you leave for Ilos you're pretty much stuck with finishing the main story line. With the game save before leaving for Ilos, you can at least reload it and do more assignments if you decide to finish the campain. Just don't overwrite it accidentally or you'll have to start a new play through.

    LLboxedThis achievement really behaved odd for me; this and Krogan Ally were the last cheevos I was missing in the game.

    While all other squad related cheevos popped after being about half-way done with assignments/main missions this one actually took me a lot longer; I was starting to get nervous after doing every single assignment in the game and getting to the Citadel Lockdown.

    Both of the cheevo's popped during the last set of assignments on the Citadel after doing WAY more than the needed 30-45 assignments.

    Onyx GrimoireThis achievement popped at like 55 missions completed. Not amused at all that I had to put in extra work.

    According to Mass Effect Wiki, you unlock this achievement by completing 50 assignments with Garrus out of the disc's 73. Each DLC adds 3 to that list, making for a max of 79.

    1) You do not need the character in your party to count toward your total, you just need him there when the assignment is marked "completed"
    2) YES, DLC assignments can count, and are much easier than some in game assignments.
    3) I suggest using Liara as your extra character when going for this achievement. She is the only other character who needs 50 assignments complete, so you should unlock both at the same time.
    4) When you earn this, all characters will have recharge time on Damping and Overload reduced by 10%

    Fully CompletedRemember it's 50 for Garrus and not 45 like some of the others.

    To get this achievement is really easy. Once you recruit Garrus into your party put him in your party when you go on missions. He has light/medium turian armor. He can use a pistol,assault rifle and a sniper rifle. With him he's good at combat and tech so use to take out enemies shields and weapons. He can also hack and boost your mako shields as well.

    He makes taking out any group of bad guys easier he also works well with Wrex and Kaiden. You need to do at least 40-50 missions and the achievement should unlock.

    Class: Turian Agent
    Assault Rifles
    Sniper Rifles Unlocked at Assault Rifles 6
    Tactical Armor Can use Turian Light and Turian Medium Armor
    Assault Training Unlocked at Tactical Armor 5
    Damping Unlocked at Decryption 4
    First Aid
    Electronics Unlocked at First Aid 7

    (FYI- I used the mass effect wiki)
