    This achievement is obtained by reaching one of the four faction endings for the main questline of the game for the first time.

    I made a chart that shows how to obtain all the achievements with only one save / reload, and also the best point to save in order to obtain all 4 endings (not necessary for achievements).

    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:

    Hope it helps!

    AxillaryMeesThanks, great guide.
    Do you have a chart of the far harbor questline and nuka-world questline??

    Super NES tevezWay to go on the flowchart. Thank you so much! Made this nightmarish "multiple playthrough" business a walk in the park. My only complaint is that Bethesda made four different endings to a story that wasn't all that interesting. I only hope they make a game where achievements are more general to the overall game and not so specific to mundane quest lines. Just my personal opinion, no offense meant to fans of the story. Thanks again for a great guide.

    Cheese TouchWhen you are making your key saves, make a neon sign that says "mass fusion save" or whatnot and save standing in front of it so it'll be easy to find later.

    This is earned after completing one of the major questlines in the game.

    PLEASE NOTE!! The major questlines cannot all be earned in one playthrough, so make sure that, if you want to be efficient, you make plenty of save files before you reach a point of no return so that you don't have to restart the game to go down a different path.

    Probably the best place to save your playthrough will be at this point:

    Farther along, there is another branch that can help you finish all of the quest achievements for two separate factions, depending on which faction you choose:
