    Some players I've helped in the past had problems unlocking this achievement if both players aren't running the same copy (XBLA on Xbox 360 vs. the one included with Rare Replay on Xbox One). If this is the case, both players might need to run the same version of the game.

    I have this achievement and would be glad to help out at any time. Just send a message to Lightsup55 on Xbox Live saying:
    I'd like the "What's That Smell?" viral achievement in Banjo-Kazooie: Nuts & Bolts. Thanks.
    Please note that I will not be helping out with any achievement related to ranked wins as they will take some time to unlock based on the map, game type, and/or match rules (solo or team for certain achievements) that appear at random. If you need help with any achievement related to ranked wins, please either join an existing session or create your own session for the date/time that works best for you. Please make sure that Your time zone settings (under Regional Settings) are set correctly to display your local time. For more information, see How to Create and Join Gaming Sessions on TrueAchievements. (some links will not work unless you have an account on TureAchievements.com)

    Despite how old this solution is, please keep in mind that I'm still helping gamers with the What's That Smell? viral achievement. If I don't respond right away, I'm probably at work or sleeping. I have the most availability to play on weekends and when schools are closed during the daytime hours (6 AM to about 9 PM) in Baltimore, Maryland, United States (U.S. Eastern Time UTC/GMT -5).

    Find someone who already has this achievement and invite them to an Xbox LIVE multiplayer game (MULTIPLAYER -> Xbox LIVE). You do not need to beat the player, just play 1 match until it ends. The achievement unlocks on the results screen.

    You'll still unlock the achievement if the other player disconnects from the match, as long as you remain in the game and finish it.

    From the main menu...
    Using cn_LSr, highlight MULTIPLAYER from the main menu and press cn_A.
    Highlight Xbox LIVE and press cn_A.
    Using either cn_LSd (or cn_down), highlight MATCH CHOICE and press cn_A.
    Using either cn_LSl (or cn_left), highlight PLAY A GAME WITH MY PARTY and press cn_A.
    The PICK A RACE / PICK A SPORT screen appears. (use cn_RB to switch between the 2 types of matches).
    My recommendation is to choose PICK A RACE and select SHORT CIRCUIT (very easy, small circuit race, though it has 10 laps). If this is acceptable, press cn_B to exit.
    Using either cn_LSd, then cn_LSr (or cn_down, then cn_right), highlight MATCH RULES and press cn_A.
    From here you can change the types of vehicles allowed and if this will be a team or solo match.
    I'd recommend PLAYER'S CHOICE (allows you to use custom vehicles) and SOLO PLAY ONLY (no teams).
    Press cn_B to exit the match rules screen.
    Press cn_RB to show your friends list, then press cn_LSr (or cn_right) to move over to your friends.
    Once you've highlighted your friend that has this achievement, press cn_X to send a game invite. Alternatively, you can use cn_guide to access the Xbox 360 Guide and send the game invite.
    Once your friend is in the game, press cn_start to start the match.

    This can also be done in RANKED MATCH, but your friend will need to search at the same time as you for this to work. Please note that playing ranked matches will take some time to unlock the related achievements based on the map, game type, and/or match rules (solo or team for certain achievements) that appears at random. The following achievements can be obtained from ranked matches (with the proper settings):
    *** Spoiler - click to reveal ***

    * If playing on an Xbox 360 console and you own the L.O.G.'s Lost Challenges DLC...
    * If you've purchased Rare Replay on Xbox One (L.O.G.'s Lost Challenges DLC is already included with your game)...
    Additional achievements can also be obtained if playing on a DLC map (with proper search settings):
    *** Spoiler - click to reveal ***

    Note: If you are playing Banjo-Kazooie: Nuts & Bolts (included with Rare Replay) on your Xbox One console, open the Xbox Guide by pressing the View button cn_back and Menu cn_start button at the same time. You need to do this to accept and/or send game invites when playing an Xbox 360 game on Xbox One.

    This is a viral Achievement that is unlocked through Xbox LIVE multiplayer matches. You must complete (but don't have to win) a multiplayer match against another player who has this Achievement. It probably won't take long before you find a multiplayer match with a qualifying opponent (I earned mine on the first try).

    This is a viral achievement that can be unlocked in the multiplayer mode. You can unlock it in player or ranked matches. The way I usually pass it on is by inviting the person into a lobby and starting a match. Speedway is a quick race, about 3-4 minutes. You do not actually need to search; this achievement can be passed on through player match with your party. Once the match is complete, the achievement will unlock for the other person.

    I have this achievement now, so if anyone still wants it just send me a message on this site or over xbox live. I am usually on during the evenings (EST time)
