    Perim MasterIn case anyone has had trouble getting this achievement, simply zoom in and out a few times when you look at them. Worked perfect for me the first time I saw it.

    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:

    MathGuy42These apparently don't spawn if you're playing inside a Playlist. I couldn't get the achievements to unlock while playing "Mixing It Up" and the family definitely was not there.

    To speed things up a bit, the first two are after Rally Point Bravo and the 3rd is after Rally Point Charlie.

    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.

    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.

    Missing Link Egg - On the waterfront where the Phantoms drop off ships before you head into sniper alley, look across the waterway to the edge of the cliff on the right-hand side of it (this is the cliff that has the Jackal snipers on Legendary). You can just make out a monkey sitting in a tree. This one is in the video of all 3 monkey easter eggs down below the Haplorrhini achievement.
