    Your Grappling Hook has three modes - Air Lifter, Retractor and Booster. To achieve the Classic Hits achievement, you simply need to use the RETRACTOR mode for a total of 15 minutes.

    If you're unsure of how to do this, follow these instructions:

    To equip the Retractor, press the cn_back button and then cn_RT to go to the Grappling Hook screen. Edit one of your loadouts and switch your RETRACTOR in the "Automatic" column to any of the settings (low, medium or high) by pressing and holding cn_X and scrolling cn_LSl or cn_LSr. The achievement description doesn't specify but to be safe, ensure that the BOOSTER and AIR LIFTER options in the Automatic column are set to off using the same method.

    Now you need to come out of the menu and use the grappling hook so press cn_back again to exit. Once back out in the open world, you will want to ensure you've selected the loadout you just edited (A, B or C) by pressing cn_left or cn_right and then you simply need to aim your grappling hook at anything and then press and hold cn_LB for a couple of seconds whilst aiming somewhere else before releasing cn_LB.

    This achievement is cumulative so just use it naturally during gameplay and the achievement will be yours in no time! Alternatively, if you want to boost it ... just stand there for 15mins until the achievements pops.

    Pressing cn_down will disengage the grappling hook when you are finished.

    NellumNai Yeah it popped for me pretty much as soon as I got across the bridge at the very start of the game. Solution I've written is a bit overkill but it's to help everyone including those who might be brand new to the franchise and not know how to use the mods.

    Bad Kermit Is this glitched for anyone? I've been stuck at 67% complete for quite a while, and I only have the retractor engaged on either one of my loadouts.

    Bad Kermit Never mind. I popped a different achievement, and that looks to have un-stuck it.
