You have to finish the puzzle with at least 1:20 left on the clock. There isn't much room to spare. The goal is to get both the red path and the blue path to cross the board.

SAVE YOUR GAME BEFORE YOU TRY THIS.

Use the screwdriver on the puzzle, but DON'T TOUCH ANYTHING YET.

This is difficult to explain, but it works. There are 17 screws you can turn. You can do it in any order you like, but to save time, it's easiest to go right across the first row, left along the second, right along the third, and so on.

You move your cursor over the screw with LS, press , press right on the LS the number of times, then press again.

IMPORTANT: Pause after each screw to review the solution. A picture of the solution is in the spoiler since it seems to break the page.

Here's the solution, starting with the top row (L to R):
1st x1
2nd x3
3rd x 2

2nd row (R to L):
4th x2
3rd x1
2nd x1
1st x2

3rd row (L to R)
1st x1
2nd x1
3rd x2

4th row (R to L)
4th x1
3rd x3
2nd x1
1st - SKIP, go to next row

5th row (L to R)
1st x2
2nd x2
3rd - Don't need, puzzle should stop here and the achievement should pop. I did it with 1:22 to spare.

If you get to 1:20, quit to the main menu and continue. You'll be back before the puzzle again.

Hope this helps!

Just got it with 1:29 to spare using your method! Thank you. 👍😊

Great guide. I couldn't pause the game at all while the bomb was ticking though. Pushing the Xbox home button would pause it. I had to dashboard, quit and reload every time I went over the 40 seconds. Memorizing the sequences helped so I could do it fast, had to practice about 10 times before I got it.
