    Remedy OmGFor me, I waited for the initial message for each terminal to flash red (Takes about 30 seconds) then when it brought me to the next message just keep tapping A to go through all of the messages and it should pop for each terminal.

    DJBringaI had issues with the first terminal, so what I did was just hold X to activate terminal and then didn't press a button until the achievement unlocked. Worked on all 3

    DoomScottYou have to wait until after it turns red and wait again for another screen while pressing A to scroll through. Don't exit out to quit at any point and it'll pop.

    Mission: The Ark - Terminal 1: After the initial fight with hunters, grunts, and a brute, head inside the structure. Instead of going in the door straight ahead, take a left into one of the two doors into a small semi-circular hallway where you’ll find the terminal on your left. In the collectibles video this one starts at 2:38.

    Terminals can be found on ANY difficulty.

    The video below is all you need to see to find the terminals on THE ARK. It is very easy to follow.
    All credit goes to WikiGameGuides for the video guide.

    count023is there a trick or some sort of glitch related to the H3 terminals? I didn't pop it for this terminal despite many tries

    SchiZoPHreNiikzKeep clicking (A) while viewing the terminal to scroll through the pages, and don't stop until the achievement pops. Sometimes the terminals have pages that take a few seconds to pass. Just be patient and keep tapping (A) until you get your achievement.
    Let me know if it works for you!

    Leo AscendentWas wondering why I didn't have any of these achievements despite accessing the terminals. Kudos and +1 for mentioning you have to go through the whole text.
