    Make sure you have enough caps (around 41500 with a barter skill at around 20, higher barter skill will give a lower price), or enough things to sell to get that many caps.

    EDIT: the following method works on all commissary machines, credit to o Smeds o for that information.

    On the High Road you will come across a sign which says "travel service", next to this sign is a truck with a commissary on the back, get ED-E to open it. Save the game (just in case), then sell your items until the commissary runs out of caps, it has 6000. Exit the buy/sell menu, then enter again, the commissary should now be back up to 6000 caps. Repeat until you have enough caps for all 3 of the Red Glare upgrades. Beware however, that the commissary will stop restocking caps if you buy anything from it.

    Once you have enough caps purchase the 3 Red Glare upgrades, the achievement should pop when you exit the buy/sell menu.

    You can now either continue with the upgraded Red Glare but with less caps, or you could reload the save and keep all your caps.

    HolyHalfDeadYou need to purchase the following mods:
    - Red Glare Alpha Strike (Increases speed of rockets.) 11,816
    - Red Glare Auto Launcher (Increases Fire Rate) 11,267
    - Red Glare Far Sighting (Increases zoom level.) 11,541

    An easy way to get this really early in the dlc is after you wake up ED-E from the stasis chamber, turn around, and next to the door you came in is a commissary, just have ED-E activate it, and buy the upgrades.

    Note: If you find fault with my solution, leave a comment why, and I'll do my best to fix it.

    OXYMAN80This is the fastest way to unlock the achievement. Thumbs up from Me!! The 8 negatives are probably from people who don't know how to save their caps and buy the upgrades at the beginning of the DLC. Great solution.

    Warboy925Caps wasn't a big deal for me at this point in the game, this was the last cheevo I needed to finish this DLC......just went in, freed Ed-E, opened the commissary, bought the upgrades, and got out of the divide!

    If you have discovered the place " High Road Entrance " and walk a little bit forward you see a military truck on the right hand side of the high way, it has this big terminal on the back which you need ED-E to unlock it ( after unlocking it choose the "Access Commissary " option ) and its basicly a place were you can barter so you can get all the upgrades for this achievement before reaching the end. But make sure you have LOTS of money (41500), so make a save first then just sell everything ( if you have lots of expensive stuff like I did ) then as soon as you back out of the dialogue stuff the achievement should pop and if you want all your money back just reload the save and carry on like nothing happened.

    deutschZuid41500 at what level of bartering?!!

    Tank Force UKI never have my bartering maxed out dude so if you have yours maxed out it won't cost you as much.
