    This achievement is story based, and cannot be missed. It will pop when you complete the Merryweather Heist mission, stealing the super weapon from a freight ship at the docks.

    Sadly, Lester comes along, in a hospital gown, showing his fat ass crack, and tells you to put it back, after all the hard work! The achievement pops either after or during the final cutscene.

    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.

    ShadowRaven9Down voting because he wasn't wearing a gown in my game. Jk but it's weird how he didn't have one on. Wonder if they made a random change for the Xbox one from 360

    HurriedPie69297Sadly it was glitched in my playtrough.
    I seem to need to play it twice for it to unlock.

    KIL AK47DU67Wild guess, does it NOT unlock if you pick the offshore item to steal ?

    If the achievement didn't unlock for you, replay the merryweather heist and don't skip any sections.

    This achievement requires you to complete "The Merryweather Heist".

    This heist can be completed in two ways, the "Offshore" approach or the "Freighter" approach. They are both covered

    The video guides will be underneath the text guides if you prefer them instead.

    You have to start this mission as Trevor. You will begin this mission with a cutscene.

    Offshore Approach

    Once the cutscene ends, you will be told to find a four-seated car and then drive all the way to Sandy Shores Airfield. When you reach Sandy Shores Airfield, you will have to get inside the Cargobob and hover above the submarine, and pick it up with the implemented grappling hook. You have then got to drop the submarine in the yellow marker and with the submarine find the superweapon under the water using the navigation device you are given. Once you find it, you have to return to the surface with it and pick it up using the Cargobob again. When you pick it up, return back to Sandy Shores Airfield to finish the mission.

    NOTE: IF THE ACHIEVEMENT DIDN'T UNLOCK WHEN COMPLETING THIS MISSION THEN REPLAY THE MISSION VIA THE "GAME" TAB.

    Here is the video guide.

    Freighter Approach

    Once the cutscene ends, you will be told to find a four-seated car and then drive to the bridge. When you are in position, you can either be Franklin, the sniper, or Michael, the bomber, I would personally go with Michael, but it's your own choice. If you are Franklin, protect Michael by sniping enemies, if you are Michael, then sneakily plant the bombs in locations. As Franklin and Michael, they will eventually spot you no matter what, they will also bring in a helicopter, quickly shoot that down. As soon as most guards are taken out, the cargo ship is sunk in a cutscene and you control Michael and try to find the superweapon in the sea. Once you find it, Trevor will pick it up with the submarine and go to the yellow marker. This completes the mission with a cutscene.

    NOTE: IF THE ACHIEVEMENT DIDN'T UNLOCK WHEN COMPLETING THIS MISSION THEN REPLAY THE MISSION VIA THE "GAME" TAB.

    Here is a video guide.
