    Story-related. Can't be missed.

    Will pop upon the completion of "Contingency" on any difficulty.

    If you do "Contingency" on Veteran, you'll also nab the achievement called Ends Justify the Means.

    I completed this mission on Veteran and then proceeded to finish the whole game on veteran, however, looking at my achievement list I realised that this achievement didn't unlock :/ should I replay the mission? Does anything prevent this achievement from unlocking?

    xBrushedRedxI don't know. I haven't encountered any bugs. I'd just replay it. But if you got Ends Justify the Means then I wouldn't worry about doing it on veteran and just go on casual
