    These two achievements (Playing both sides... & ...against the middle) are essentially story-based so they're hard to miss. In both territories, you could do missions for only one faction, the APR or the UFLL. Eventually, however, that faction will stop giving missions. This forces you to switch sides if you want diamonds, this achievement, or to finish the game.

    The achievement unlocks right after you complete the mission for which you switched sides.

    SockDustOnce you've switched, can you switch back again or do you essentially forfeit the rest of the other side's storyline missions in that territory?

    HolyHalfDead@SockDust - 8 years late, but since they are main storyline missions, you must do all 6. In other words if you can do 3+3 or 1+3+2, etc.

    This one is pretty simple. By default, you start on the UFLL. In their building, they’ll give you a mission. When you head outside, you’ll receive a phone call from one of your buddies. Accept it and you’ll receive a buddy objective, marked blue. Your buddy wants to subvert your current faction’s mission. Simply head to the blue marker and follow the directions, killing all enemies when needed. Once you complete the final objective, you’ll unlock this achievement and the achievement for completing a buddy mission.

    BazingatorSubverting the mission has nothing to do with this achievement. All you must do is complete a mission from both factions.
