    As the achievement states, you must fully complete one fragment section. The Quiz Mastery section may be an easy way out but, I think doing the gravitational cores is another route to take. If some of them don't appear, progress to the end of chapter 4 where they will end up giving you a mission to find all 7 which will unlock all 7 cores. Also, if you try to get some of them before the mission pops up, you need Mog's ability to make things invisable, visable. Plus you must collect 5(not 7) cores to progress with the game anyways. With having to find 5 regardless, you might as well get the other 2 to finish the section completely.

    Edit: Actually you only need 5 to progress the story and not 7. Thanks Torash for pointing that out.

    Here are them 7 cores and their locations

    Core name and Location:
    #1 - Gravitation Core Alpha - New Bodhum (003AF)
    #2 - Gravitation Core Beta - Bresha Ruins (005AF)
    #3 - Gravitation Core Gamma - Oerba (200AF)
    #4 - Gravitation Core Delta - Academia (400AF)
    #5 - Gravitation Core Epsilion - Yaschas Massif (100AF)
    #6 - Gravitation Core Zeta - Oerba (400AF)
    #7 - Gravitation Core Eta - Sunleth Waterscape (400AF)
    #1 New Bodhum 003AF - It's the area where the game starts. Return later to collect the core (it won't be there in the beginning)
    #2 Bresha Ruins 005AF - Second area you enter during the story. No way to miss it.
    #3 Oerba 200AF - Oerba 200AF - from Bresha Ruins go through orange gate to Yaschas Massif 10AF and from there through orange gate to Oerba 200AF
    #4 Academia 400AF - You will get here as you progress in the story
    #5 Yaschas Massif 100AF - through blue gate in Academia 400AF (requires wild artefact)
    #6 Oerba 400AF - from blue portal in augusta tower 49th floor (requires wild artefact) travel to Oerba 300AF. Solve all paradoxes in Oerba 300AF and go throug the blue gate (requires wild artefact) to reach Oerba 400AF
    #7 Sunleth Waterscape 400AF - through blue gate in Yaschas Massif 100AF (requires wild artefact). Once in waterscape you will have to search for the missing pudding monsters to reach the core.

    You do not need the 7 cores in order to complete the quest, only 5 are required.

    Its Uncle KevThanks for the heads up. I thought it was for all 7. Fixed and udpated.

    Bloodmang0You know on the Yachas Massif levels with the red orbs missions? Well I think alot of those fragments are in the same category because I did all of them and it helped towards unlocking this achievement.

    Its Uncle KevAre they? I never looked into. When I play the game in a bit, I'll see what catergory it fits into or not. Otherwsie, that too, would be a good way of going about for the achievement.

    Shin AluYes the red orb missions are a good method aswell. If you do them in the 2 Massif area's where they show up including the mission that pops up after the last orb in an area, you fill that category. It is how I got this achievement myself

    This achievement didn't unlocked when I did this part the game and might have to replay the whole game again if it glitched.

    Its Uncle KevHave you completed Honor of Blitz Squad or Crimson Memories fragment yet? If not, those are the next easiest sets to complete.

    If it doesn't unlock then, then im not sure what the problem is. Are you playing on easy or normal?

    blumunkey1982I only have 2 more cores to go and decided to try something different:
    I tried the red orb missions (there are 4 red orbs), no achievement...
    next I finish all 4 brain blast consoles, no achievements...
    finally I finish "the pain in the neck" Captain Cryptic's Confounding quiz and got the achievement. I used the youtube to help me find Captain location:

    It is my understanding that only one achievements require Normal difficulty the rest can be obtain on easy difficulty.

    Edit: I wasn't paying attention about the Red Orbs missions. There are Yaschas Massif 100 AF and 110 AF. I never started 110 AF so it's possible that it can be unlock after both are completed.
