    This achievement is story based, you can't miss it. It comes after the first heist when you rob the jewellery store prior to meeting Lester, after scoping the place out, and getting hold of equipment, you do the heist.

    The heist can go differently depending on which way you choose to do it, quietly and quickly, or all guns blazing. Once it's done and you've escaped back to Lester's, the achievement will pop.

    NOTE: There's a strange phenomenon happening just lately with the Achievement system on the Xbox One. Achievements aren't popping visibly or audibly, but they do. Your console has to be connected to Live, so if they don't pop, check your Internet connection, and the Xbox Live status page at http://support.xbox.com/en-US/xbox-live-status

    They DO pop correctly, as I obtained them on the 360 version.

    will i am notAn FYI, this didn't pop for me. However, I replayed the mission and it popped then.

    AngelTiddlesI've updated the solution with a note. It's Microsoft's mental Online only achievement system on the One that's the cause.

    will i am notNope, don't buy it. I only play online. After it didn't pop I got the achievements for Sunset Overdrive, the online ones.

    AngelTiddlesNo, you misunderstand me. The console needs to be online (connected to Xbox servers) for ANY achievements to unlock, even the story mode. The Xbox One achievement system is glitchy.

    Look around this site, it isn't just GTA V this issue is happening to. Other XOne games like Max Curse of Brotherhood & Forza are affected.

    will i am notSo I don't know if this will work for others but it does for me. I had my console set to instant on. Games which I continued from a sleep state I always had trouble with achievements. When I start up the console I now quit the game so it loads up fresh and not from a sleep state. Since doing it, no problems.

    AngelTiddlesThanks Will i am not! I don't use Kinect, so always turn the console fully off, and always quit a game once I've exited it if finished. It does it in my case too, so not just exclusive to Kinect instant on.
