    "Okay this achievement is fairly simple. Just make sure you read through the whole guide.

    You're going to start a new game if you haven't selected the goldfish for you pet or if your goldfish has died as the goldfish is the key to the vault. Not really sure how you're suppose to do it with other animals.

    You'll notice that the goldfish will swim around in its tank then pause. It will sit there for a while before blowing bubbles. There is a pause in between 4 sets of bubbles. The amount of bubbles the fish blows in each set corresponds with a number and as far as I can see it is random numbers so you'll have to watch the goldfish yourself.

    No fear though, did you miss the bubbles? Well use your game DVR to make a 30 second recording.

    Now that you know your code, you have the find the shelter. Well fortunately for us life is fickle and meaningless in the wastelands so we are not going for survival here. So we need not care to much about our family members.

    From the start of your game you'll want to have built as many water butts as you can. I started a game and did these following steps.

    1. Upgrade Work Bench

    2. Built as many water butts as possible

    3. Wait for the rain.

    Once your water butts are full you'll want to send your survivors on long trips through the wastelands. Try and do this while it's raining so you can send more survivors. You can section off a part of the map with around 30-50 water with one person. (Should be holding around 100 water).

    The mystery hatch will be one of the random locations out by itself. I have not seen it close to anything so you'll be good to ignore any clusters on the map. According to some people, that have had games where the mystery hatch does not spawn. So this may happen if you can't find it and you'll have to repeat the process.

    You can have your survivors ignore every encounter and location until they reach the mystery hatch. Once you reach the mystery hatch put in your gold fish's code and it should unlock the hatch and the achievement."

    HighT3chR3dn3ckYeah well the solution is here and placeholders are bullshit. I'm not gonna' withhold information or wait for someone to post it just bc of "thunder". That guy wasn't gonna' post the solution until he completed the game and god knows when that would've been, so yeah fuck him; and honestly bro, you should've taken him down first for being such a twat about it. Who does that? Seriously.

    LLAMAP0CALYPSESo the short aolution here is watch the goldfish for the code, find second hatch, unlock with goldfish code. Got it. Seems to me that you should always start with a goldfish just in case you find the other hatch, then if you are lucky to find it you can actually open it. Thanks for the guide, maybe someday I'll find the other hatch and give this a try.

    HighT3chR3dn3ckcn_LT zooms you in, and I counted them as they appeared. Also I was very close on a 42'' screen

    JayowskiHighT3chR3dn3ck, you're my hero, man! I did exactly what you mentioned et voila! :D Counted the bubbles (6636 for me), built watter butts, sent out scouts to individual locations in the corners of the map and got the hatch :D

    Draco719Is there any other way to do this? I started with the dog and just now found the hatch on day like a hundred and fifty

    Brave Fencer VuHeads up!

    As of the time of this comment (March 2019), the newest patch seems to (unintentionally?) have made the Hatch not spawn on difficulties other than "Normal".

    To make it easy on myself, I started the game using custom settings (high chance of rain, peaceful citizens, etc) and couldn't get the Hatch to spawn. Tried again on Easy and same deal. I checked every "?" on the map and even used the RV to relocate and again, no Hatch. Started a new playthrough on Normal and, boom, found the Hatch right away. Have not tested on Hard or higher difficulties.

    To save yourself the headache, I would avoid using custom settings and just load up a game on Normal difficulty.
