This achievement can be gain early in game as soon as you arrive in Whiterun. Go where the big tree is and close to it is the Jorrvaskr (the companions main base). Enter inside and talk to Skjor about joining the Companions or you can just skip him and go downstairs to Jorrvaskr Living Quarters and talk to Kodlak Whitemane .Then the quest Take up Arms begins.

Follow Vilkas outside, hit him with your weapon when he tells you and then you pass his test, he will give you a sword to give Eorlund ,so go give it and after the conversation you will have with Eorlund he will ask for a favor to give Aela her shield back. Accept and go give her the shield.After a small chat you will follow Farkas to your quarters and thus the quest ends giving you the achievement.

Good luck and enjoy Skyrim on the One.
FalensaranoAs a side note, do not take Lydia with you. She will attack the companions and you will be killed while Vilkas talks to you.

NierEnixAnyone know if the achievement is glitched? I've done it over a dozen times back to back and its not popping. I have no mods enabled or even downloaded and I've restarted the games, xbox and reloaded different saves but nothing is working.

RainleafYou can check if your achievement is unlocked just it didn't *pop* maybe.
