    These "obtain X fifteen times" achievements are a bit tricky. They are not "glitched" so to speak, but once you exit the game completely (i.e. close the app) the counter resets. You can go to the game's menu screen and quit missions without affecting it, but when the app closes, it resets the counter.

    My recommendation is to go for these after you have beaten the game and have some upgraded weapons/abilities. Go for all three "star rating" achievements for health, style, and time at the same time, as this will also help you go towards obtaining the "15 x Veteran status" achievement. Load up the first level from chapter select and keep replaying checkpoints until you get "Veteran" rating. This will ensure you got three stars in all of the achievement-related categories. Once you get "veteran" for all of the checkpoints on the first level, move on to the second level, then the third, and so-on. This will help you track how many three star ratings and "veteran" statuses you have received. If you "veteran" each checkpoint, you should only have to play the first fifteen checkpoints (through the second checkpoint of the X1 wing level) to unlock everything.

    If there is a checkpoint you are having particular trouble with, just skip it and move on to the next one. Just keep in mind you'll have to make up for whichever 3-star rating was giving you trouble on another level in order to unlock the achievement for that category and you will have to veteran another level for the "veteran 15 times" achievement.

    The achievements will pop in the "mission summary" screen at the end of the checkpoint if you get them. It takes a bit of time, but is not hard with upgraded abilities and weapons. Just make sure you go for all of the "3 star" related achievements and the "veteran" achievement at once and unlock them all BEFORE you close out of the app, or you will have to start over on whichever one you are missing the next time you start up the game.

    Let me know if you have any suggestions or additions and I'll add them as necessary! Good luck!

    SENTINAL 107Ok so let me get this straight start from the beginning and don't stop untill you get your intended achievements.
    If you do stop can you start from the beginning again?

    X QuisUtDeus XSENTINAL 107, The tough part is that the counter resets when the game closes....so when you decide to go for the "obtain X fifteen times" achievements you must do it in one sitting. You can close the game, but you will have to start from the beginning as far as counting for the achievement goes. X jjaldana 2 X, I apologize but I do not know how to help with the phone crashing issue. If you have the ability to select another mission I would say just skip the one that is causing the problem.
