    ClassyWingsYou wrote Control twice wink, I think the second Control should be Surrender

    BetterCallEricThis achievement is so glitched for me. No matter what I do, it will not unlock. I've replayed the chapter several times in several different ways. I've even deleted my game saves, deleted the game, re-downoaded the game, played all the way to the 'Junction' mission in Act 4 (whilst collecting every collectible again), chose the "Control" option, and... nothing.
    I don't know what to do because it simply will not unlock for me.

    CaptfarrellCheck the achievements app in the XBox, see if it's listed as "unlocking".
    That happens when you lose connection to Live.
    If it is, it'll unlock on its own randomly.

    It's one of the utter pains of the One, and has caused me to lose my streak multiple times.

    McAwesomePTalso not getting rational thought. what is strange is that right before and after act 4 I kept getting all achievements until there was only this one left. everyone says its microsoft server issue but Im beggining to think there is something wrong with the game, well, I guess I will have to wait and see if it eventually pops. not willing to start from scratch just to get the same issue

    KanchanaburiThis didn't unlock during the cut scene or on the achievement app. Not even done... Unlocking. But minutes later it was update as unlocked on tA followed by just being unlocked on the app. Very weird.

    McAwesomePTfor everyone having this problem, I just got the achievement.
    no notification was given, I simply found out I have now 100% game complete.
    I did the achievement on April 16 and it appears as done on April 28 so I can only assume that it takes around 12 days to finally see the achievement, whenever this happens.

    as someone else said, "patience is key"

    as a final note, I found out through my TA newsletter, logged in and found an auto message from today (may 1) saying "Congrats"

    Apostle92627I also didn't get the achievement.

    Edit: I was able to unlock the achievement after a hard reset. I got it to unlock by choosing surrender and then control.
