    For this achievement, all you have to do is spend 15 hours in FPS mode. To play in first person mode by pressing cn_back a few times. You can try play through the campaign and multiplayer to get your 15 hours.

    Or...

    This achievement is easly attainable by finding a nice quite alley for your character, plug your controller in by USB and go do something else (overnight or during a shift at work). After your game hits the time mark you unlock the achievements. If you're unsure you have unlocked it, check your notifications.

    Happy hunting! wave

    Ron Jeremy R6Didn't work for me as I was streaming my Xbox through the Xbox Console Companion app on my PC. It didn't work if I put the idling on and turn the streaming off. But it did work when I kept my streaming active.. Strange stuff.

    Dstranger1092It was definitely odd for me as this achievement unlocked while i was in a loading screen for gta online as i apparently left my character in first person last i went on it which kind of is understandable given i did have around under 10 hours in a new first-person story so I can only think the game just combined the online timer as I was loading in to make the game just unlock it for me.

    If you have always on power mode you can earn this over night if you don't quit the game and leave your player in first person

    *Thanks everyone for confirming this works. However it would seem you need to be in a multiplayer lobby.

    Not a solution, but just for reference, this unlocked for me when the stat counter said 10 hours. Achievement title may have been a typo. Or I may have been lucky

    Racer 6981That's probably because it's time spent on first person between story mode and GTA Online.
