    This is achieved during the Epilogue. Watch up until Johnson approaches the engineer. As soon as Sergeant Johnson says "And then, you're gonna help me stop him" look left with the right stick (the same way you would look left when playing) and you should see Buck picking a Monkey's hair. The achievement will then unlock.

    Mission: Epilogue
    Difficulty: Any

    Start the mission and wait about 2 minutes until Sgt. Johnson sits down to light his cigar and says "And the you're gonna help me stop him". At this point use the Right Stick to look left cn_RSl, causing the camera to pan over to Buck playing with a caveman. Seeing this Easter Egg will trigger the achievement.

    I think you guys are going to love this. I was afraid that I would have to reinstall the game or even delete my profile data for TMCC, but thankfully none of this was necessary.

    If the achievement has glitched for you (as of January, 2016 it was still glitchy for me, playing for the first time now and after all patches) and you have a secondary controller, do as I did. I logged on a second profile (not a guest) to more easily track the audio logs. But before doing that I decided to give it another go for this achievement.

    As soon as it said "Prologue" I started holding the RIGHT stick to the LEFT, all the way throughout the scene until Buck and the "Ape/Caveman" showed up. First the achievement unlocked for my secondary account and then, much to my joy, it finally unlocked for my primary as well.

    Note that I had previously done the above methods many many times and the achievement refused to unlock to my primary. I guess I've found a nice way to un-glitch it. I hope somebody can eventually confirm if this works using a guest account as well.

    If this solution helps you in any way, please leave a comment and a thumbs up to let me know. Thanks.

    Okay is isn't much of a guide but more of a solution. For some people (Like myself) would go to view the "Missing Link" the achievement would not pop. I haven't seen any solution to this glitch but I think I may have discovered the solution.

    So, many people know that the "Who Needs Them" Achievement is currently glitched but there is a workaround where you have to delete your install of MCC. I decided to go with this method because I was getting impatient with 343. Now when I re-installed MCC, the "Who Needs Them" achievement popped. I had an afterthought though to try and do the "One Got Away" achievement after doing a fresh install of MCC. Thankfully, The achievement finally popped. Now I don't think you have to completely delete your MCC Install. I think if you just delete the ODST portion then re-install it, I believe it will unlock when you go to view the Missing Link, If not try deleting your install of MCC then re-installing. Also as a side note I do not suggest booting up MCC when ODST is Installing. I hope this helps people out.

    During the epilogue, just hold the left thumbstick to the left. At one point it will pan the camera to the left and you'll see one of the monkey men and pop this achievement.

    I've included a video below with loads of achievements. For the One Got Away achievement, start at 29:29.
