    In order to get this achievement you need to complete two different missions.

    The first mission is "Hunger Pains", which takes place on the morning of day 3 around 5 am. Should happen before Case 5-2. This mission requires you to save a survivor in Chris's Fine Food store in Palisides Mall. The survivor, Richard, will not join you until you bring him some food. He has already eaten everything in Palisides, so take some with you or get some from the food court. Any food will do, even a drink works.

    Once you have returned him to the Safe House you will have to wait until you get a call for the second mission called "Snake in the Grass". You should get this call on day 3 around 3 pm and before Case 5-3.

    To complete this mission you first have to go to the Safe House and speak with Richard. He'll ask you to get him an erotic magazine from Hot Excitorama which is on the Silver Strip. The magazine should be on the left wall as you enter the store. Return this to Richard and you should get the achievement upon completion of the mission. There is another magazine erotica that is found in the Slot Ranch Casino that will not work for this.

    Keep in mind that you will not receive calls if you have too many cases already in progress. If you haven't received the calls, make sure to complete the missions (or kill the survivors) that you already have first. Also, if your co-op partner picks up the magazine and then quits with it in their inventory then it will not spawn for you in Hot Excitorama. This happened to me but when I joined another co-op game it reset the magazine.

    Not really a solution, but a warning: this achievement apparently has a glitch. It happened to me. I did everything needed to for it, but when I handed the magazine to Richard, the scoop did not end even though I got the $100 for doing the scoop. Thus the mutiny was not averted. I couldn't figure out why it happened, Ricky the C on xbox360achievements.org offered this:
    A note to everyone going for this, it glitched for me when I gave him the magazine and didn't unlock. Make sure you save before giving it to him, and do NOT skip the dialogue upon handing him the magazine; that seems to be what stopped the achievement from unlocking.

    So, when going for this one, do NOT skip the dialogue or you'll be forced to do another playthrough.

    Phoenix C64question: if you glitched it in one playthrough, can you still unlock it in another playthrough with the same gamefile (or a new gamefile?)

    SM ScorxYou don't have to start a new game file, but you will have to do another playthrough.

    Ok, the guides above are quite useful and accurate, but I think it could be a little clearer about the risks of losing the proper scoop:

    Fact is, DR games have a precise timeline for all its events. What changes is the opportunity so you can be warned about them. You can't have more then 8 characters "doing things" around and no more than 5 scoops happening at the same time either. The tricky part is that even an event that has no actual scoop on your watch counts for it.

    Ok, considering the situation you'll face by the time the scoop "Hungher Pains" is triggered, the chances of losing it is quite high. As said before, it will happen betwen cases 5.1 and 5.2. At this point of the game, you'll have two scoops for sure on your watch, the one for Case 5.2 and "Ante Up" (Poker Game). There are 2 others that should happen in this time frame, and you'll also face the 4 snipers in the outside of the casinos...

    That's the problem! If you have 4 scoops and the snipers going on during the time "Hungher Pains" should happen, it won't trigger. A survivor following you counts too, so if you're after "Alpha vs Omega", Denyce is considered as a scoop in progress...

    Last detail: you can't be in the place a scoop happens before you're warned about it. If you're in Palisades Mall by the time Stacey would tell you about Richard, the call won't happen. The timing in the story usually helps in this matter as you should be raising a million in the casinos, but if you already got the money, like me, is quite possible you'd be folling around in this area, so, stay sharp!

    HEADS UP: Complete all scoops as soon as possible in between cases 5.1 and 5.2 and don't forget to take care of the 4 snipers. Keep yourself away of the Palisades Mall untill you get the call and you should be fine...
