Make sure to make a backup when you go outside to look at the fortifications. There may be some issues with getting this to pop, so it's good to be able to go back to the beginning of this scene.

This is for doing everything in the yard before you talk to Violet. She'll come out, but as long as you don't talk to her, you should be able to finish looking around.

Some people have said talking to people interferes with the achievement. When I got the achievement, I talked to absolutely everyone, so talking to people does not interfere with this. The last thing I did was go to the graves, and it popped. You do need to talk to Rosie and Louis for achievements.

You probably don't need all of this, but here's a list of everything you can do in the yard. Talking to people probably isn't part of this, but it covers everything.

Look at the graffiti
Look at the flagpole
Look at the head next to the flagpole
Look at the walls (on the gate)
Look at the barbed wire on the walls (I can't remember exactly where this was)
Look at the pile of heads on the ground
Examine the wooden spear barricade
Flip over the picnic table
Look at the burned out building (rubble)
Look at all of the graves (Marlon, Brody, Ms. Martin, etc.)
Talk to AJ & Tenn up on the tower
Talk to Mitch
Make sure to pet Rosie for:

Shoot the bow with Louis. Don't miss for:

If it hasn't popped yet, make sure to look around one more time for anything you can do. Once you talk to Violet, you can't go back.

DwaggieniteIs this supposed to pop BEFORE you talk to violet, or WHEN you talk to violet?
Posted by Dwaggienite on 26 Sep 18 at 02:46
SashamorningBefore you talk to Violet. The pile of heads was the last thing I found.

DwaggieniteOk, this didn't pop until I did everything that DID NOT involve talking to anyone.

Do NOT talk to AJ & Tenn. Do NOT talk to mitch. Only do things that do not require communication with any other character.

KenH2k4That's true, you don't have to talk to people. You also don't have to spit on the grave. So:

Look at the graffiti
Look at the flagpole
Look at the head next to the flagpole
Look at the walls (on the gate)
Look at the barbed wire on the walls (I can't remember exactly where this was)
Look at the pile of heads on the ground
Examine the wooden spear barricade
Flip over the picnic table
Look at the burned out building (rubble)
Look at all of the graves (Marlon, Brody, Ms. Martin, etc.)

GUNNA999666Wished i'd went by the other guide cause yours cost me almost an hr having to start over because talking to anyone messes up the achievement and now i see others have pointed out to you the same issue and you have not bothered to fix your guide. Thumbs down!!!

KenH2k4The only person that matters is Violet and they have it underlined

SashamorningI talked to absolutely everyone before I went to the graves. Going to the graves popped the achievement. Talking to people doesn't help or hurt you, as long as you do everything else before you talk to Violet.

GUNNA999666@KenH2k4 I can read, i talked to everyone BUT Violet and it did not pop so i had to start over. @Sashamorning When i did replay it and not talk to anyone (even the dog) and it popped for me. I see you did edit it so i will change my vote.

ARCHER MIKEI talked to Louis and shot bow before going to graves and picked up ‘sureshot’ achievement. Also pet Rosie for ‘great girl’achievement. I skipped Marlon grave and did Brody first then Marlon and as soon as I looked at Marlon grave, the achievement popped. Then the option to spit on Marlon grave came up after the achievement so I can confirm that spitting isn’t needed.

I used the LB when I started out as it showed me all the options on where to go. I visited everything except talk to Mitch and I didn’t talk to the kids on the tower lookout. Just pointing this out in case it helps.

I don’t see violet anywhere yet. I’m sure she will pop up once I talk to kids or Mitch.

After I completed achievement, I went back and talked to the kids in tower. Then I went back to play with the bow as it was now an option. Louis did say after getting sureshot that I was welcome to practice any time so I was just checking it out. I had to do 5 more shots before I could go. Now the only things coming up from using LB are Louis and bow at archery range and Mitch at picnic table and the option to go back and spit on grave. I went to Mitch and talked. As soon as I was done talking with Mitch, violet walked outside. Now violet and Louis show as options to interact.

I couldn’t tell you if Mitch was the problem people were not getting the achievement but we know for sure that the achievement pops before Violet is in yard so just make sure to do everything before talking to Violet.

SashamorningI didn't spit on the grave when mine popped, either. Let me take that one out.
