    This achievement is obtained by completing the main storyline following the quests of one of these factions: Minutemen, Railroad or Brotherhood. You only need to do one of these, not all three.

    While the other guide is helpful, it is rather chaotic, so I made a chart that shows how to obtain all the achievements with only one save / reload. My guide shows how to unlock "The Nuclear Option" while aligned with the Brotherhood, but I also indicate when to diverge from these steps, if you want to play the Railroad or Minutemen endings.

    Scroll down for a more detailed explanation (inside the Spoiler Tag, as it is an awful lot of text).

    For starters, keep in mind a thing: having high charisma will help you when you'll have to balance several factions at once. I recommend having at least 6-7 points of charisma, and using "charisma-enhancer" gear like Glasses, Hats or Suits, or even using, when neccessary, beer or some drugs as Grape Mentats or Day Tripper that give charisma points for a few minutes.

    Open this thing for the full explanation:

    ZttackFrmBhindI had to do a whole second run through for the Railroad and the Brotherhood Acheivements... accidentally saved over my pre-Mass Fusion save... so I downloaded the flow chart and marked off all of the acheivements that I already had in Paint :) Thank you

    Unky KyHonestly, you cannot understand anything in any of your guides. The lack of grammar and proofreading is ridiculous.

    VvWhiteFangvVwhat do you people want then a way to do the mission or what will be missed at certain points. im about to just delete all solutions as you people just complain and don't actually leave real ways to make the guide better.

    matdanI would say the downvotes are because the guide has nothing to do with the mission mentioned in the achievement description and is just an overall guide for the game which is already in a dozen achievement solutions.
