    MJ MonroeIt is possible to have two of your followers complete an infiltration mission for a warchief allowing the betrayal mission to become available.

    Fiendish5022This achievement is flagged as miss-able. Surely it's not miss-able since the game is open ended and it seems like you could do this cheevo at any time, including after the main game has ended. I seem to recall a similar achievement in Shadow of Mordor and I did it after completing the main game

    During Act 2 you can start to dominate Orcs.
    Pick any fortress and find a Warchief with at least two Bodyguards.
    Find the bodyguards and dominate them. On the second city you go to during this act you can send them to become spies after dominating by pressing cn_X. Do this for all bodyguards and a new mission called "betrayal" will spawn. Complete this to unlock the achievement.

    If the weakest Warchief doesn't have any bodyguards, go to "Army" and select a warchief. Press cn_Y to command and then hover over the Warchief and press cn_A. This'll set up a new mission for the fighting pitt. If you're Captain is successful, he'll become the warchiefs bodyguard (spy for you).
