    If you are in position where the camera angle is directed up 2B's dress, 2B will turn around suddenly and the camera angle will change. If this occurs ten times, the achievement will unlock. There are times when this might happen inadvertently especially when 2B is ascending elevated terrain. It can be done deliberately on level ground.

    The earliest point where it can be unlocked is in the the prologue right after you get control of 2B. So, for Bean Divers, this is the achievement that can be unlocked earliest in the game although you can wait till much later to unlock it. You can do it immediately upon gaining control of 2B but it's particularly easy after you progress a few steps across a walkway that 9S lowers. There are some containers. While 2B is standing on the edge of a container, position the camera angle to look upwards under her dress. It takes a couple of seconds. When she abruptly turns, you know that it has worked. Do this ten times to unlock the achievement.

    Edited to add 30 July 2018. As the discussion with @Karachi King in the comments below indicates, it is important to hold the camera steady. This is probably more important than looking up 2B's skirt. The important thing, assuming that you have a low camera angle, is to hold the camera steady. As stated in the above paragraph, it takes a couple of seconds. Do not continue to search around for the best view. Camera movement prevents 2B's reaction. Instead, get a satisfactory angle and hold the camera steady. Only if 2B ignores you for a couple of seconds should you try to change the camera angle and try a different view.

    Note: If the achievement is too sophomoric for your tastes, it can be purchased for 50,000 gold in the secret achievement shop. This special shop becomes available after three playthroughs. By that time, though, it is quite likely to have popped accidentally even if you have not been deliberately working towards unlocking it.

    MarkoEliteA very easy way to get this achievement.

    When you finish the hanger section, soon as you land and get out, look behind you. There is a few metal crates. Jump up on to them and stand close the edge. Move the camera under her, rinse and repeat 10x and the achievement is yours.

    erod550Bah, wish the walkthrough had mentioned this could be obtained so early. I am diving this game and ended up playing over an hour to unlock the first achievement after completing the prologue cause I died once at the boss and had to start over.

    Allgorhythmerod550 - I hope you enjoy the game in spite of the early mishap. I have solutions for most of the achievements. They all state the earliest they can be achieved & which can be ‘bought’ at the special achievement shop that becomes available late in the game. If you use the achievement shop, the game is a quick completion because you can concentrate on the main story.

    I found the easiet way to get this is to go on the escalators in the shopping center from City Ruins Near the Tower.

    Position 2B in either escalator and then lower the camera down into the escalator as well - behind and lower than 2B's position. After standing there for a few seconds, 2B will push the camera back - that's how you know you're making progress. Repeat until unlocked. Make sure the mini-map has disappeared as that may affect it.
