    ** This achievement is not glitched **

    You can get this achievement without having to delete any title updates.

    To get the achievement, you want to "add bombs" using the weapon wheel. Press RB to pull up your weapon wheel. Highlight a bomb with empty slots. I prefer the decoys because they are the least disruptive. Anyway, you add more bombs by pressing A while the bomb is highlighted. Spam this by tossing bombs and adding them back until you get the achievement. If you are doing all 30, you may run out of ingredients. If you do, go make yourself a new bomb at a crafting station with ingredients that you have an abundant supply of and pick up where you left off. The whole process takes less than 5 minutes.

    I imagine that the title update altered the requirements of the achievement, but this way is just as easy as crafting at a station and it let's you get it while staying online.

    If you have any questions or problems, let me know and I will be glad to help.

    This is pretty easy to get. In Sequence 3, Ezio learns how to make his own custom bombs. There are crafting stations in Assassin Dens, and also around the city (White Bomb icon on the map).

    Craft a bomb, then disassemble, then go craft a slightly different one. There are over 100 combinations, so doing 30 is no problem.

    Not sure if this will be the same for everyone, but for me the achievement did not pop until after I exited the crafting station, so if you're counting and you've gotten 30 and wondering why there's no achievement, leave the crafting station.

    Edit: Since the title update, this achievement may be glitched for some people (but not everyone). If it's not working, you can delete the update and play offline to get it.

    Here's how you delete the title update

    Guide button, all the way to the right - "Settings". Go to "System Settings", then "Storage". Under "Games and Apps" you'll see a list of all your games. Just go to ACR and there should be an item called "AC Revelations Title Update" that's 9MB. Select and Delete. Next time you start up the game, tell it to play offline. Get the achievement, then restart the game and re-download the patch.

    CheesyChimp69I managed to get this (without deleting the update) using the weapon wheel method but it is still glitchy. I crafted 35 or 36 bombs in Cappadocia and it didn't drop. Then I returned to Constantinople, crafted one more bomb and it dropped straight away.

    much like the sage achievement was glitched for me, this one was too. i had to delete the update and do this one offline, but it immediately unlocked after i went to one bomb craft station. i just quickly made nine more bombs and then exited the station and then it finally popped. if you know that youve made more than thirty and havent gotten the achievement yet, give this a try.

    Solo P3T3RThis is the only correct guide here. I had to craft all 30 again. I just made 10, 3 bomb sets of smoke bombs.

    ZordnilI had the same problem with the update glitching the achievement. After i deleted it i only had to create a few more bombs to get it.

    Delete the update/patch by pressing the xbox-button on your controller, go to settings -> system settings -> storage (or memory). Choose your hard drive, then Games and Apps, locate AC: Revelations and inside there you will have a list of items such as save games, uplay passport and the update/patch. Simply select the patch and delete.

    FYI. The 'Sage' achievement has been reported as glitchy too after the update, so to avoid having to replay the whole game i think i will play the rest offline without updating.
