    This is obtained after the following through the main storyline and completing the final quest. Its is awarded after the ending scene.

    Make sure your well stocked with ammo and stimpacks going in.

    The finale takes place in Ulysses' Temple. You go through a minute of dialogue and then must decide how to finish him off.

    *The optional quest is to disable his eyebots which make finishing him significantly easier. The terminals for each are found on the second level on each side of the rocket. It requires a SCIENCE or REPAIR of 100.

    After dealing with him and a dozen Marked men, you will head over to the console and decide how you want to end the game.

    If you have a SPEECH skill of 95 or higher you can convince him that he is "on the wrong path". He will then join your side and help you defeat the Marked Men. After the fighting he will go his separate way.

    You have to cancel the missile launch, otherwise you fail the mission.

    R06U3just to clarify, your Speech skill needs to either be 90 (assuming you found all the holotapes for the Ulysses's Odyssey challenge), or 100 (if you didn't). Obviously, you can always use skill magazines or other items to reach the amount you need.

    As far as failing goes, the only way you really fail is if you get killed. Regardless of how you complete the DLC, you will get the achievement.

    Therefore, the important question you should ask yourself is what in-game results YOU want to occur, whether for access to specific rewards or for RP reasons. It's even possible to get an Idolized reputation with a faction you nuked if you avoided going too far down the main quest line before completing the DLC. shock

    Just a heads up, you CAN miss this achievement as I did. If you kill Ulysses too fast, the marker for dealing with him wont go away and the achievement will not pop. Make sure you take your time killing him or you will be sorry. another tip, rescue ED-E if you want to disable the launch of the missiles. Otherwise, you have to send the missiles somewhere. That being said, save before you go into the final showdown ;)
