    After purchasing the Cerberus Network go to the extras in the main menu and go to downloadable content. Download Zaeed.

    You will be given "Dossier: The Veteran" whenever you acquire the Normandy. Go to Omega and talk to Zaeed to recruit him.

    Now for the tricky bit. Zaeed will tell you about this other job he took on before yours. Go to the planet indicated in the quest. Once there, you have to make a choice: Save the workers (paragon) or get revenge (renegade). If you take time to save the workers Vido will get away. In the following scene you must choose the paragon option to get his loyalty (thanks to ShinGlacier).

    Saving the workers will take you down a path with more rewards, both in terms of money, resources and research found. Either way you will find the flame thrower. The end of mission bonus is bigger too. But Zaeed will be upset that he didn't get his revenge.

    Going for revenge you will find more enemies, less money, resources and research. Either way you will find the flame thrower. The end of mission bonus is smaller as well. Zaeed will get his revenge and you will get his loyalty.

    BiG PaPa ChIlLI did the paragon way with about 3/4 full paragon and couldn't use the action. Did not get achievement, had to reload and do the renegade way

    There seems to be a bit confusion regarding this, so I'll clearly outline everything:

    First off you'll need the DLC entitled 'The Cerberus Network'. You will receive a card with a code for this after buying ME2 new. Type the code into and the next time you log in to ME2 you'll have the option to download 'Zaeed's mission'. If you have no code you will have to download it from the Game Marketplace for free.

    Downloading this will add Zaeed's location to the Galaxy map, also adding 'Project Firewalker' and 'Normandy Crash Site' missions, along with the powerful shotgun the M22a, a new lightning Heavy Weapon, and a decent but non-customisable Cerberus Armour. The latter are irrelevant to this or any achievements.

    Go to the Galaxy map, navigate to the 'Omega System' and find 'Gain the veterans loyalty'. Dock into the Omega station and approach the first guy you see in Omega, Zaeed.

    Now as long as you gain Zaeed's loyalty the achievement will pop. He wants revenge so doing his mission Renegade style won't require high renegade, it just requires you choose all the renegade options. You will encounter more hostiles and receive less rewards for Renegade.

    You can however do this Paragon style (for extra resources and rewards), you can save the workers but you'll have to have at least a 30%+ Paragon to convince Zaeed you did the right thing and gain his Loyalty.

    Once you complete Zaeed's mission the achievement will unlock.

    *'Remember do this Renegade if your Paragon is low, and do it Paragon if it's high for better rewards'.

    Try these steps again:

    1. Download or input the access code again.
    2. Select the 'Downloadable Content' option on the main menu.
    3. Choose 'Zaeed's Mission' from the Cerberus Network list and click on it.
    4. Make sure it has downloaded.
    5. Now enter the game and travel to the Omega System, where it says 'Gain the mercenary's loyalty'. Zaeed should be standing near the entrance, if he isn't try backing out to the main menu and downloading again.
