    The conversations that the achievement refers to are the optional conversations you can have with people during the course of the game by approaching someone at your camp and pushing X when the prompt appears.

    This achievement can be missed; you'll have to play through the game again if you miss any conversations. This also must be done in one play-through. Thankfully, there are only a few places that have conversations, and all of them take place near unmissable camps with people who are obviously there with you as part of the story. There aren't any hidden people to find.

    The TR save icon will appear in the bottom right when you've successfully registered as having completed a full conversation with someone. Look for this to confirm when your game has given you credit for that conversation.

    Some people say that the game will not always retain credit for having a conversation if you die before you reach a new checkpoint. If this ever happens, just go talk to the person again after your death.

    Here are the conversations, in order:

    1. In the Coastal Forest there are 4 conversations with Whitman before you upgrade your weapon for the first time, but people have reported that you don't need to get them to complete the achievement. The TR save icon does not appear when you finish speaking to him, either. All conversations after this are definitely mandatory, though.

    2. In the Mountain Village, after Roth gives you the climbing axe, talk to him 4 times.

    3. After the rescue plane crashes, Roth and Lara argue about whether she should go look for survivors. Talk to Roth 4 times before you set out.

    4. Much later in the game, you meet up with some of your crew on Shipwreck Beach to repair a boat. After a cut scene, they will continue to talk to each other for a while. Wait until all of this is done, and then you can speak to Sam 3 times, Jonah 3 times, and Reyes 3 times. This must be done before you complete the next quest objective.

    5. Very soon after #4, also on Shipwreck Beach. When you return with the part for Jonah speak to him 4 Times, Sam 3 times, Whitman 2 times, and Reyes once. Reyes will automatically start talking to you when you approach her, so don't count that as your one time. This all needs to be done before you meet up with Alex.

    6. When you return to the camp on Shipwreck Beach after the event on the Endurance with Alex, speak to Jonah 3 times, Reyes 3 Times, and Whitman 3 Times. Doing all of this should immediately trigger the achievement.

    If you don't get the achievement right after the final conversations, you have missed something, or something did not register; you'll have to play the game through again. Sorry.

    DaneXXXGlitched for me at first. Jonah only let me talk to him 2x on the final conversation. Quit and reloaded with nothing. Noticed my connection to live was down. Re connected and restarted game. Popped maybe 3 min later.

    Whitman was not needed in the beginning. I missed that initial first convo. Still got it.

    BrutalPandaXI restarted on Easy mode to get this achievement. There was one time on moment number 3 where I died right after I did the conversation with Roth and when I respawned they were not done yet (even though I saved at the camp after talking with him) so I did them again. When I finished the last conversation I got nothing. I thought maybe I could get this if I just run straight through without shutting the game off. I started Easy mode again, it took me a little over 3 hours to get nearly to the last conversation by just running straight through and skipping all cutscenes plus avoiding all pickups except ammo. I died only a few times on the way due to carelessness and if I was close to the conversation still, I went back and made sure they were done because of the experience I mentioned before where it reset on before a checkpoint. Before I got to the last conversation, when I was running off the Endurance ship in an action scene, my game just shut off and the Xbox went to home menu. I was pissed but before I booted back up I saw I got a new achievement, it was Chatterbox and I got it 1 hour ago, meaning I got it 2 hours into my straight through playthrough without shutting the game off right after having done it to the end and the achievement never popped for me, it was just in the Recent Achievements menu.

    For this achievement you need to complete all conversations with the Endurance crew. You can only talk with them at certain parts in the game (by pressing the X button when a speech bubble is above their head) and if you miss one of them you have to either revert to your last save/checkpoint or play through the whole game again.

    To get this achievement I used this video. It's extremely helpful!

    SooFanyI can confirm that you don't need to talk with Witman in the very first section as mentioned in this video!

    Hunter KahnAre you sure that's accurate? I've heard elsewhere you don't have to talk to him BEFORE collecting the salvage, but you DO have to talk to him after.

    CTM AudiRS6I didn't talk to Witman after getting the salvage and got the achievement.

    Also, want to point out, I didn't get it my first play through (didn't check the achievements until it was too late). However, its not that bad to do another play through, got it in less then 4 hours not worrying about collecting anything and skipping cut-scenes.

    TheBongoFuryGoing all offtopic: How can you spot the difference between normal Portuguese and Brazillian Portuguese? (All I know the Brazillians use the X a lot more than the Portuguese do.

    JacktheJokerTinSigmund666 You may not even care about this anymore, but I think it's kinda like American English and British English
    The entonation is different, and a lot of words have different meanings or are used differently
    And also Portuguese people tend to speak faster, and along with their accent, sometimes is hard for us brazillians to understand
