    After you get off the chopper sidecart at a gas station you can see Zoe handcuffed to a policevan.

    1. Talk to Zoe and agree to help her.
    2. Go around the left side of the Station into a shed with a red political poster on it. Take the hose and the red oil canister that is also sitting around outside of the shed.
    3. Go back to the policecar and extract oil from it.
    4. Buy matches from the gas station.
    5. Go back to where the shed was there is a large pile of garbage that you can set on fire, do so.
    6. Once the little cutscene is over run directly around the other side of the gas station (opposite side from where the cops are approaching you).
    7. Take the keys off the table the cops were sitting at.
    8. Go to the van and open the drivers door, take the keys.
    9. After you uncuff Zoe you get a cutscene getting caught but you will still get the achievement.

    The above solution probably works but both options for the Antenna were red for me so i couldnt follow that one.

    PangoBaraThis didn't appear for me in Chapter 3 even in my first playthrough. Was Chapter 4 for me, literally the first scene

    GrapefruitbierI want to add the information that chapter select isn't available any more once you reached the end of the game. I missed this one and thought I cold just play the episode (actually 5 in my case) after I finished the game again. Only option was to start a New game after the credits.

    At some point in your playthroughs, you will encounter Zoe in a car sequence which leads to this event happening, where she is captured by the police and they stop at a gas station at some point down the line.

    For me, this occurred on the second teen play through and I didn’t get the gas station sequence until the third one. But note that the event itself is scripted, it may just happen in a different order.

    Once you find Zoe handcuffed to the police car, speak to her and free her. You start this by going around the left side of the gas station. You can either:

    — Break the antenna tower, you need specific skills to do so (I did not have these at the time).

    — Commit arson by the antenna tower. Get a hose and a empty gas tank from the rear of the gas station. Go back to the police vehicle and drain the fuel from it. Go into the gas station and buy a box of matches for $2. Go the back left of the gas station to ignite a fire.

    Once you’ve done either of these two, DO NOT run back from the way you came as the cops head that way. Instead, go the other way where the cops initially were. On the table where the cops were sat, will be a set of keys. Pick them up and head for the police car, open up the police car and pick up the handcuff keys, then free Zoe.

    The achievement will unlock after this.

    So you can miss this one. I did. On the encounter where you find Zoe handcuffed to the outside of the cop van if you set off the radio antenna and then go around the right side of the gas station, the cops will find you before you get a chance to get the key from the picnic table and undo the cuffs on Zoe.

    So after you set off the Radio Antenna, go around the left, grab the key from the table and then use the key on Zoe to unlock the achievement.

    OzzysShadyDiscoIf you accidentally run the wrong way and fail, you can immediately dashboard and then reboot the game. You'll start back at the beginning of the scene. Worked for me anyway headspin
