    This achievement was initially unobtainable (as well as Long-term commitment), but it was fixed on March 27, 2017. I'll leave the initial solution I posted and the updates to it under "Spoiler" tags for anyone who might come back to get this later on.

    Now it has been partially fixed, meaning that some people will unlock it just fine but it will still not unlock as it should for others. If you are in the second group, please comment your experience in the comments section so that we can identify the issue more accurately.

    Update June 10, 2018: If you are still having trouble unlocking this (and long-term commitment), check OdinAsteroid's solution for a work-around. A friend of mine tested it for long-term commitment & it worked.

    As for how to unlock it, the achievement itself is quite simple really:

    When you load up the game, if you press Start cn_start a list of challenges will appear, the three on the top are daily challenges, the three on the bottom are weekly challenges. For this achievement, you have to complete one daily challenge every day for 7 days in a row. Daily challenges reset every day at 10pm EST (Eastern US) (thank you MathGuy42 for the info). Seven days in a row means at least one chalenge from 7 different sets of challenges in a row. The set of challenges has to reset for the streak to progress.

    Daily challenges are usually fairly easy, requirements are along the lines of "Complete 3 blitz matches", "Perform 10 counters", "Play 2 matches with X leader", "Win one match", so you shouldn't have any issues completing at least one of the three challenges you get every day, and pretty quickly also.

    Once you complete your seventh daily challenge in a row, the achievement will pop.

    Read below if you need info about how the achievement used to be unobtainable:

    Maaarc15I can’t confirm that this is bugged. I played it online for 7 days and it unlocked without a hassle. Just make sure you sign into your profile before(!) you launch the game.
    EDIT: this unlocked fine but the weekly one did not pop. Seems to be glitchy and I was just lucky.

    SpicyAsteracWas still bugged for me 01/04/21 as at this point I was 9 days in, however after completing today’s daily the achievement popped for me not sure if it being a new month changed anything but glad I didn’t have to keep resetting my Xbox to get it

    If you're having trouble unlocking this achievement, try this:

    WARNING: You'll need your Xbox One to be online and you'll need a working internet connection when restarting the game!

    After completing one, two or all three challenges for the day, exit the game (press cn_guide, highlight Halo Wars 2, press cn_start, select Quit) and delete your save. To delete your save, highlight Halo Wars 2 and press the Menu button cn_start on your controller. Select Manage game and go to Saved data. Highlight your save, press cn_A and select Delte from console. Next time you launch the game, it will synchronize the local data with the data in the cloud and update correctly.

    Do this on seven consecutive days and the achievement should pop.

    Further explanation:
    I've had trouble unlocking this achievement because when launching the game, it would randomly not find my saved data. Skulls were locked, campain logs were marked as new/unread, the game asked me if I want to play the Blitz tutorial, my campain saves were gone etc... On Halowaypoint, the daily and weekly challenges would update correctly, so I realized that there must be an issue with the startup and initial loading of the gamedata.

    Try it and tell me if it worked for you.

    JHuxybooshSo 7 days of completing daily challenges and wiping my save and still no cheevo. Well and truly broken I would say!

    I will continue for as long as I can be bothered, but looking at the % of players with these achievements I don't think I stand a chance!

    EDIT - so I might have messed up slightly with the save deletes and was removing off everywhere, including xbox live... 7 more days I guess!

    JHuxybooshOK, so after 4 weeks of trying I finally managed to get Short-term commitment to work!

    Follow the guide exactly as posted and only delete the local save on your console.

    Now to hope Long-Term pops at then end of June....
