I unlocked my painted item online!
As we know, you can only unlock them online!

You simply have to play online games.

- It doesn't matter which typ of matches they are (3v3, 2v2, ...).
(I unlocked mine while playing with a friend 2v2 unranked)

- It also doesn't matter if they are ranked or unranked.

- And it also doesn't matter if you lose or win the game.
(I lost my match 3:5)

It's simply based on luck! You can unlock the painted item after 5 or after 50 matches.
Just keep playing and you will get it.

Stig AssassinSame. Does it say painted like it does for certified or just a different color? I'm well over 50 matches with 4 certified items and no painted.

qwxxDoes the achievement unlock as soon as you get it or once equipped?

The CrynetThe achievement pops as soon as you get the item - end of the match.

Psyched ChickenI am no longer unlocking items after completing games and have yet to get a painted item and I've played at least 100 matches since they added these items.

Stig AssassinThere's apparently a 10 hour limit per-week that you can earn items. It resets a week after your last item drop. This is all from comments in my "Certified" solution so I can't say from experience. It does explain why I'm not getting items either.

LordMakanakiCan this be obtained in private online matches? That's probably the most important piece of information and it's missing from your solution.

The CrynetDon't understand why people down vote. What they aspect? You simply have to play online matches and it could be a lot of matches. The 10 hour limit could be true coz my friend also doesn't unlock items after matches. And i don't know if you can unlock them in privat matches, i played online 2v2 unranked. It's only based on luck..

XGC GunNutso there is a limit to how much i can earn in a week, based on time? yet there is an achievement for RNG based collectibles this trend sucks in the industry right now.... Looks like I'm not gonna play for about a week apparently.

NJStalderXBI've got a painted topper and no achievement.

Stig AssassinThe 10 hour limit from a previous patch seems to be gone now. I'm probably around 20 hours within the week and just got my painted item.

pukem0nni didnt get an item for 5 games in a row.

are you sure the 10 hour limit is gone? it seems just about 10 hours since i started playing it again. Got my cerfitifed item to Veteran status already, but no painted items in sight :/

Stig AssassinI was going 10-15 games with no items. They may drop more frequently during that first 10 hours, but it's definitely possible to get it. It took 6 days of playing to finally get my painted item. In the process of looking for it I got all the other achievements.

Comrade SpannerOk I now have every item unlocked but no painted (or certified). Am I fucked, or will they still drop?
Posted by Comrade Spanner on 02 Sep 16 at 00:30
Stig AssassinThey should still drop. It's just very rare and an annoying grind.

DoctorFoxBoyI found a blue fez topper, but no achievement. Do only certain painted parts count or something?

AAXBI still can't get one and I've played 40+ hours since.

Unmet PlayerI have a painted item to trade for a certified.

RagingMonkieeHey All,

I was struggling with this achievement for ages but believe i've finally cracked it through a combination of all solutions posted on the internet and seeing so many comments about people unlocking after they had a second painted item - Try this out!

Potential Solution To Bug:
Note: You will need someone else with 10 minutes and 2 painted items for this method to work

Firstly, Get your achievement hunting sidekick to trade you one painted item without you trading anything back in return. Then, equip the item and head into any online game. If it doesn't unlock immediately after the trade, or after completing the game with the equipped item, hard reset your Xbox (Press and hold the X on the console down for 10 seconds) with the item still equipped.

Restart your Xbox and grab hold of your achievement hunting sidekick again so they can trade you their second item; without you trading anything in return. Achievement popped up immediately after I had the second item in my inventory with my painted tires still equipped on my car. If this doesn't work straight away I would recommend repeating the process or just keep trading back and forth until it does pop-up. Always keep one painted item equipped however!

Let me know if this works and I'll spread the word.

transkyman4 years later and this is still a struggle. I've played like 50 games. I haven't gotten painted or certified items. Anyone willing to trade?
