    GamezGuru 360I collected all upgrades on a single playthrough, and could have sworn an achievement popped when I picked up the barrier one, but checking my achievements it shows 85% complete! Definitely still buggy...

    USS PrometheusJust tried this again and still not unlocking. I'm guessing they don't have the dev time or the want to fix this for people. Kinda sad.

    edit: after today's update 12/10/20 I thought I'd give it a go - it's now unlocked straight away after my save load. Took them far, far too long to fix it, but credit for doing so at least.

    frenchmau5It says I have 85% but I collected them all on different playthroughs. Is it possible to see which one it says I'm missing

    Uh0h its RenaudLooks like this still doesn't work. I'm stuck at 85% as well. Should have the achievement 3 times. So brutal

    TuschiDidn't unlock here either. Annoying.
    Edit: Nevermind. It actually unlocked too early and I didn't notice.
