    A man of Principle.

    You must earn the Captains trust by the end of game. Very easy to do. A few places though can easily be missed including one of the most important.

    Throughout Sam’s journey you’ll be accompanied by the Captain who will give you tasks to do. One task is related to an achievement.

    When you do something for the Captain, a flash of light will go off on the screen. Similar to the good moral points that you do in the main game.

    Also make sure you have Hints turned on in your options menu otherwise you’ll miss some of these.

    ninjaraiden2003 I went for this yesterday on my first run of the DLC and hit all the steps but it didn't unlock. Turns out I thought I had done the 2nd to last step by finding 5 bodies and a tape recorder which initiated a radio cutscene to the Captian where you get off the boat but there was waaay more to check on that island climbing all the way up to the top for another tape recorder.

    Using this video reference I found on YouTube which isn't mine, that step begins at 6:18

    M I K 3 ID v I think their are a few bodies on that little island but some are the Caps friends and others are the men that were chasing the caps friends down.
    Great video guide though! Hopefully some may use it for reassurance that they got everything on that marshy island.
    I'm planning on going back through it again to improve my guide.

    Meeze I got the detonator, blew up the sub and didn't earn his trust so I don't know.
