    This solution is specifically addressing the Floyd Mission aboard the SS Anubis.

    The Mission aboard the SS Anubis in the Hold area must be won with a gold medal in order to receive the earplugs as a reward. The earplugs should be given to Ivana Bear, an NPC on the Ruined Water World.

    In order to get a Gold, you must complete the race in 60 secs or less, Collect all 8 Circuit Boards and Destroy all four targets. The fuel is constantly counting down. Every 100 units represents 10 seconds; you must finish with 900 units remaining in order to get a gold medal. There are 8 circuit boards scattered around the map, you must collect them all. There are 3 panels on the walls and one blue reactor that you must destroy. These are the targets.

    Here's a quick rundown with a video that has a voice over explanation. The level has a shortcut at the end behind a door with a force field. Shoot the reactor to disable the shield. The 8th Circuit Board is in the Shortcut and you MUST take it to win.

    Thanks a lot and Good luck on your 'Chievos.

    I personally had issues finding and completing all of the Floyd missions. I found this GameFAQ written by Niveau helpful.

    Click here for guide.

    I take no credit for this, guide written by Niveau on GameFAQs.

    Furthermore, this achievement isn't glitched. Some people got the requirements wrong, flipped out, cried the sky is falling, and freaked everyone out.

    This achievement requires you to get a BRONZE or better on all SIX missions. That's all. If you get a bronze or better in all six, you'll get this achievement. Some of the missions are required to beat the game.
    Mizar's Palace - Automatically get expert for completing and needed to progress in the game.
    SS Anubis - Gold required for earplugs, which you need to beat the game.
    Final Mission after Final Boss Fight - Automatically get expert for completing and needed to progress in the game.

    Just make sure you have BRONZE or better (not Merit) on the first five missions before beating the final boss and you'll unlock this.

    Xer152 MCI want to throw in that you can check your progress through the pause menu, under inventory, and then the second page (move Right-stick right). There will be a line where five medals appear. Each medal follows the guide as linked in Pinski's comment above. Just to note for placement, the second medal will be gold as this was the one for the ear plugs, stated above. The last (fifth) medal will be expert, as this is given for collecting all three triangle sets in Mizar's Palace. Hope this helps...

    GrozniaSo something strange happened to me so I wouldn't rule out the achievement being glitchy. I completed all the missions and had the following: bronze, gold, silver, bronze, and the mizar temple one (expert) + completed the game. I had all of these before completing the game as this guide and others instructed. My in Rare Replay milestone tracker says I have 10/10 milestones including this achievement. Yet in my tracker on xbl its still at 83% like it was before I defeated the final boss.

    I don't know if I should just wait and see if it pops later on its own or *fight the final boss again* which I really don't want to do. I beat him with just 1 piece of health left!

    Edit: So I beat the final boss and mission again and its still stuck at 83% and didn't pop. I'm going to replay each mission later on and get at least silver in each that I currently have Bronze then beat the game again and see if that works.

    GrozniaI really hope this comment isn't true but its 5+ years old so its likely out of date. I'm not going to go THAT far anytime soon. https://gamefaqs.gamespot.com/boards/691088-xbox-one/7230031...

    Edit: Found this thread here on TA. Going to just relax instead of stressing over it as it seems to be a problem with Rare Replay in general that eventually sorts itself out.

    Unlocked milestone but no achievement

    I just want to note that you must complete and get a medal in the 5 Floyd missions found through the game before completing the Floyd mission that comes after the final boss. If you do not have the other 5 you will have to repeat the final boss to unlock this. (I had to repeat the final boss myself twice...)

    Also I can't confirm, but make sure you have at least bronze because the merit (green icon) might not count.

    If you got it, it should pop when it loads the next cut scene (the city)
