    Edit: The costume can only get obtained if you choose to go to the Ag Center. If you choose to go to Highpool the Ag center will no longer be available to visit. And as such you will not be able to get the costume, or the achievement

    I personally havent got this achievement yet, but have found the costume needed to unlock it. At best guess, you dress one of your characters in this costume and leave it on them until you complete the game.
    Edit: you dont need to wear the costume the ENTIRE TIME, just at the games ending

    The costume is located in the east field of the Ag Center, inside a safe in a stack of broken bottles. You will need perception (Just one point of perception is needed. Thanks to A TROLL AHH for the info!) to see the safe and lock picking to open it.

    The supplied screenshots show the in game location of the safe and the map location.


    Edit: Because of some tears in the comments below. Not a good idea to wear the suits in the area called the "Canyon of Titan". There are enemies which do explosive damage which destroy the clothes you are wearing. And once destroyed they are gone for good.

    wetwork MGreat idea Danokitty, can see were you are coming from! But unfortunately it didnt pop. I loaded up an old save double checked a member was wearing the costume and hit the button, no dice! I guess the achievement only recognises the proper ending sequence hey? Cheers.

    John McLarrenJust a heads up, I would recommend not wearing the gorilla suit in the Canyon of Titan. If a Monk detonates too close to you it will destroy clothing.

    misfit119So you can only get this achievement if you go with AG Center instead of Highpool? Well that's some bullshit. Guess I won't be getting this one.

    A Troll AHHJust check this guide as I was playing, but you only need one point in Perception to detect the safe. Thanks for the guide. :)

    risselessIs it true that you have to choose Ag Center over Highpool (as misfit119 said above) to get this? If so, that seems important information to include in the solution.

    MetalThreshkeenI wanted to add a warning about keeping the gorilla suit in your Ranger storage chest - there's a point of no return near the end of the game and I went past it without realizing and kept quick-saving (until I no longer had a useful save prior to that point of no return)

    In New Citadel, after you fight Dugan's forces in the underground part of the Citadel, there's an elevator up to a chopper. Once you go up that elevator you're locked into the end-game with no way to backtrack to your base - and the storage chest is not accessible even after you fly back to the Ranger Citadel.

    So if, like me, you're keeping the gorilla suit in the chest to keep it safe make sure you have it with you before you go up that elevator. (To be safe, grab it before you even go to New Citadel)

    Nick S AdminYou can also get this achievement by pressing the button of the nuke in the RC. Just separate the guy with the costume of your group.

    Chakaal Starrconfirmed swaggaground's comment. I had my group up by the helicopter, put the suit on one of my pc's then went to individual control and ran an npc over to the nuke in RC and set it off.
