    This achievement is for completing the main story quest Poisoned Ground, which is available once you complete the following mission:

    Flint & Tinder

    You will be required to sabotage the fort. Simply place the poison in barrels using cn_RB. It should cause no problems, but you can always play on easy if you are having trouble.

    As the achievement description states, this happens in Seregost.

    This has been noted as failing to unlock for several people. An unconfirmed solution has been posted in the comments. If one can confirm it works, please comment.

    Franco3188at this point I think it's a bug
    Okay, so thank you for the interest :-)

    chuckles37v3Popped for me as soon as the mission ended.. not sure if this helps... watch all cut scenes don't skip any. Complete side objective for rescuing prisoner. Let an ally land the final blow on the overlord.

    LuckyKantThe only thing that may be triggering the bug is the side objective. I can't see the cutscenes or an ally getting the kill being a cause.

    Those that have it bugged, maybe that is something you can look at.

    LuckyKantThe game is known for buggy achievements. Have you checked if it’s ‘done! Unlocking!’?

    GRANATIERE ALEXUnlocked right now! I deleted the main save from my game and apps (only on the console!!!not everywhere),started to play and after pressing A i stopped the sync and then if did correctly will show WB contract continue “offline”(without accepting the contract,but you are still online and able to unlock the achievement),i played until this mission and after this,i did it!!(then i closed the game and reload the preview save of the cloud on the right in order to reload my game with all my progresses) i think it works also deleting the save of the dlc from the menu but in this way you’ll lose your progresses of the game,good luck :)

    LuckyKantSounds promising. I have updated the solution to mention your possible solution. Hopefully it works for others.

    WulfTekI presume as nobody has commented on this in over a year that the achievement has been patched to pop properly?
