THIS IS GLITCHED ... but ... I have a potential solution.

If you've completed everything else and this is the only achievement you have left to get, what you want to do is delete all DLC so that all you have installed is the base game and then delete your save file. All of this can be done in the "Manage Game" section on your console.

Now what you need to do is go back into Quick Stage (make sure to reset your settings first if you had set manual gears etc. as deleting your save files resets all the settings) and methodically work through each stage of each country ... without the DLC, you should only be seeing 5 stages per country. It may be worth making a list and ticking them off as you go along so you know which ones you've done.

If this glitched for you:- Now if you, like me, already attempted this and had it stick at 95% or 80% or whatever, you will notice your percentage jumping about like a kangaroo as you replay through the stages. I found that every time I did the first stage in a new country, it would drop 4 or 5% but then as I did the other 4 stages in that country, it would slowly build back up and add an extra couple percent back on. For example, I started at 75% after the glitch and did the first stage of Monte Carlo where it dropped to 70%. I then did the following 4 stages in Monte Carlo and it was up to 76%. I then did the first stage of Sweden and it dropped to 71% but by the time I did the 4 remaining stages in Sweden, it had gone back up to 78%. So it really does jump about like crazy but you should notice it continue to build up over the course of the playthrough. It eventually hit 100% and popped.

If this is the first time you're attempting this:- If you have left this achievement til last and are now about to start your first attempt at it, you follow the same solution but your percentages will behave differently. Make sure that you don't install the DLC at all. All that you should have installed is the base game and make sure to delete your save game. If you're doing this achievement before anything else in the game, this is also the solution for you. You should play through the stages but make sure to have a look at the achievement progress after every single stage to ensure it is increasing.


There is no guarantee that this will work for you as I'm the only person to attempt it after the achievement glitched but please let me know in the comments if it works for you. Hopefully if there's a few of you that have experienced this glitch and this solution works for you, then that should confirm the workaround to avoid the glitch and make this game a very easy and enjoyable 1000G.
