    Fairly self-explanatory. You can either import one of your Mass Effect 2 saves from any time after the Suicide Mission, or play through Mass Effect 3 twice (with the second one either a straight-up New Game, or re-import that character using New Game Plus). Then complete the game. No different than in Mass Effect or Mass Effect 2.

    hitman23249I had the same problem as Whirlers2, didn't pop up and I completed it on normal and insanity with the same character. Also the Unwavering achievement didn't pop up, despite carefully making sure I had done each mission.

    Scheme in RhymeThat's weird; I haven't heard of that happening. Did you double-check your achievement progress before commencing the assault on TIM's base? You should have 24/27 missions completed on Insanity before you leave for it.

    hitman23249I cross checked every mission with the guide and it stopped at 14/27, I'm not sure what causes it.

    Scheme in RhymeDid the Insanity achievement definitely pop up? Maybe the difficulty got dropped by accident partway through.

    boycedesignsI didn't get it either. Has anyone figured out the reason for this? The one thing I did that could possibly screw it up was: I edited my Shepard so she looked right. I had a ME1 save. Imported into 2. Finished ME2. Then remember when ME3 first came out, ME1 characters didn't look right? Anyway, just changing her appearance shouldn't cause this but that's the only thing I can think that I did to my save. TIA

    W8taminute1941This achievement did not pop for me either. I played the first game on normal from scratch, i.e. not using a ME2 import. My second game was also on normal but this time with an ME2 import as I bought ME2 after I played ME3 for the first time.

    I'm guessing that even though I completed the game twice it didn't pop because I should of either started from scratch with an ME2 import (which I didn't have at the time) or my second playthrough should have been with my ME3 save. I'm really ticked off and I don't feel like playing a third playthrough.

    kbkM347W4Dis there anything out there? I got Unwavering achievement. I finished the game on normal with a new character as my ME2 data was still in the middle of my insane run. I literally just finished the game from scratch again and it did not pop.

    CandidFever3You can either import your character or start a new game from scratch; Both work. For supporting John Shepard and his crew through the whole story, you'll receive a long service reward.
