    Mission: Sierra 117

    In this mission you can find three "missing links" for three separate achievements.

    1: You'll come to an area with two small shelters near the water where your allies ship is attacked by covenant ships. Take out the enemies and stand next to the river. Aim across the river with a scoped weapon and look into the middle tree, on on of the lower branches to spot this missing link.
    2: After clearing out a section of enemies, you will proceed to a dense jungle where jackals with carbines will be on the sides of the area. Kill the jackals and proceed down this area, holding on to the left hand side of the walls that will it. At the end, before the turn, you should see a rock that you can jump on. Jump one step higher onto a ledge, and then crouch walk past the rocky path to spot this family of cavemen in the corner. Zoom and shoot them to unlock the achievement.
    3: Near the end of the level after you'll approach a large base that is connected via a bridge. Take a scoped weapon, go to the middle of the bridge, and look off to the right hand side. There are two cliffs that meet each other just off the side, and you should be able to see a lonely caveman on the left cliff next to spot the cliffs meet. Zoom in on him for a few seconds for this achievement to unlock.

    Following the above method will also unlock:

    Mission: Sierra 117

    The first one is in the small open area that's built on river. Go to the water and look across. In one of the trees is a caveman. It is almost impossible to make it out, but if you zoom in, the achievement should pop after a few seconds.

    All 3 Achievements here were delayed for me and didn't unlock right away. If this happens to you and you're not sure if you got it, shoot it a couple of times, zoom in and out and you should get it at a later time.

    PRIMATE 0:39
    The next area will have a lot of snipers sitting in the trees. Stay left and jump onto the stone which has a sniper on it. Take the narrow path and look left for the next achievement.

    You will come to a big open area with lots of enemies near the end of the mission. Walk to the middle of bridge and look to the rocks on the right. This Caveman is hardly visible again and is sitting in front of a bush.

    Haplorrhini Egg - The lone monkey: Another monkey can be found in Sierra 117, this time near the end where you rescue the Marines. When you enter the area, look for a tall building to the right with glass windows on the upper floor. Climb into the upper floor of this building and look to the cliff ledge on the far side of the map, on the far right-hand end of it. Zoom in with your binoculars to see a single monkey man sitting on the ledge and unlock this achievement. The video below shows Missing Link, Primate, and this achievement.
