    GabweIt's definitely glitched. I didn't get the achievement after the mission. And I didn't liberate the ranch before meeting Nick.

    EDIT: it unlocked after I destroyed the first objective (the fuel pump) in the Air Raid mission.

    UggadunkWhat does "Solo Campaign only" really mean?
    Is it host only, or is it unavailable in co-op?
    I mean, otherwise it would be missable, right?

    Shh I am BatmanI cleared the John Seed Ranch (and final mission with Seed) before attempting Nick Rye's mission. I had attempted to do Nick's mission between clearing the Ranch and the final story portion of this area, but no enemies populated the area. After completing Seed's mission, I returned to Nick Rye and was able to complete both of his missions (clearing his airfield, and the air-raid mission). Following that, I am able to use his plane whenever I fast travel to the area, but cannot get the achievement to pop. I have a feeling that resetting the outposts may allow me to grab this for some reason, but since I haven't beaten the game I am unwilling to do so at this point.

    Anybody else find a work-around yet?


    EDIT: I finished the final Nick mission (involving Kim), and have since entered the next province. At some point since I posted this comment and the time-stamp for the edit, the achievement silent-popped).

    wolfzero01I think I might have encountered a glitch on this achievement, I happened to liberate the outpost where the plane is located before meeting Nick. I did his mission but the achievement never unlocked even though when I check the log it shows the mission as complete.

    did the other mission for him, flew around in the plane after completing it, still no achievement. Don't liberate the Seed Ranch before meeting Nick or else it could happen to you also


    Edit: after starting a new playthrough, I went to directly to Nick's airfield after doing the mission's for Dutch to unlock the rest of the map. I got the mission to find his plane and went to the Seed ranch, only killing those that in my way to get the plane, upon completing the mission the achievement unlocked

    ATR0XI beat the two Nick missions. Achievement hasn’t popped. It’s been probably 24 hours. Was hoping for a silent pop. I really don’t want to have to start over again.

    Rhhe82The last part of the mission was bugged for me. The part, where
    *** Spoiler - click to reveal ***
    , the mission objective for wouldn’t complete. I read about it on some forums, some have experienced that if you try to restart the mission or just leave and retry, the mission could become incompleatable. Personally, I reloaded the checkpoint, and did the last part again. Achievement unlocked.
