    NO SPOILERS IN THIS GUIDE

    This is the last mission in the story. You can't miss it. Eventually you'll have to make a weighty choice. There's a different achievement for each route.

    HOWEVER, upon completing this final mission, it'll be available for replay from your cell phone, so you don't have to make any strategic saves. When you replay, you'll only have the option you didn't choose.

    DaChiefOfOwnageSPOILERS:

    Also, just to note, despite Shaundi dying in the cutscene for choosing this option, she is still alive after the credits (you can even call her as backup!) so no need to worry about making the right choice. Just do one and then the other and save yourself stress.

    Snow BrigadeSome initial confusion I had:
    After completing this mission in "another way" and being given the option to replay the mission, there are two missions/phone calls needed to acquire this achievement. The second call; "Stag Party" is needed for the achievement.

    This is a story based achivement and may seem to be missable but it actually isnt as you can replay the last mission once it has been completed with just the other option left.

    SPOILER

    On the last mission when you have to choose between saving Shaundie or going for Killbane go for Killbane. Once you have killed him you will get the access to your final mission. Play this mission to the end and kill Cyrus Temple (flying in his VTOL). The easiest way to kill him is to clear out the platform from rocketlouncher enemies so they cant annoy you. Then go to the crates and pick up a rocket louncher or like me the gatling gun thats lying there and finish him off. Now just jump off the ship by taking the VTOL thats spawning.
    After the credits have been finished (you can also skip them) your achievement should unlock right at the loading screen.

    JeremyIsHereI think I realized what happened. I didn't do the "Stag Film" mission after "Three Way". Whoops!

    GaTechGradI completed the "Save Shandi" ending first and got the "Gangstas In Space" achievement. When I completed the alternate end using the phone after the first ending, I did NOT get the "Mr. Fury..." achievement. However, I reloaded the save that I had before the last mission (MurderBrawl XXXI) and completed the mission again choosing the Kill Killbane option, and I did get the achievement after the credits finished.
