TL;DR: You have to collect 273/289 components and get all ultimate upgrades. Chapter select on the same save slot should be working (confirmed in the comments. Thanks!)

The ultimate upgrade locations:

Act 2:
1: Flash Freeze (Flash) - Complete all 3 Hollow Storm Locations
2: Seeker (Shock Trap) - Complete all 3 Outsiders Locations (Loot the Safe in North Tower Sub Station)
3: Marked for Death (Pulse) - Complete Condor Crash Site (South - Loot the safe at the end)
4: Brawler (Stim) - Complete Condor Crash Site (North - Loot the safe at the end)

Act 3:
5: Detonator Implant (Hijack) - Complete all 3 Scavenger Locations
6: Slayer (Cloak) - Complete all 3 Waterworks Locations (after you complete your last location, pick up the upgrade from Paduk's Nomad Guy)

Act 4:
7: Deadly Overload (Barrier) - Pick up in chapter 4-1 in the Swarmak fight area

I will post here a full guide for all 90 collectibles, 289 components, 17 relic weapons, 7 Jack ultimate upgrades locations in one video. You need the components, relic weapons and Jack upgrades for another four achievements. (JACKed Up!, Jack of All Trades, Relic Hunter, Relics of the Past)

Act 1 - 42 Collectibles
*** Spoiler - click to reveal ***

Act 2 - 152 Collectibles
*** Spoiler - click to reveal ***

Act 3 - 187 Collectibles
*** Spoiler - click to reveal ***

Act 4 - 20 Collectibles
*** Spoiler - click to reveal ***

In this large! Spoiler are the single Act videos without relic weapons and all upgrades (but I visit all locations, just complete the location and loot the safes / items there)

ATCSSo i've completed upgraded Jack, and you're telling me I need to get ALL collectibles now too? Shit. Hope chapter select works.

Delta748Does chapter select work for getting the components and upgrading Jack?
Posted by Delta748 on 07 Sep 19 at 18:55
Zasta 360GameTV@ATCS Not for this achievement. The 90 collectibles are for a different achievement.
@Delta748 Atm no idea because the servers from Coalition are really instable. My progress resets (story and collectibles) reset two times.

If you try this, please tell us it is working or not. Thanks
Posted by Zasta 360GameTV on 07 Sep 19 at 19:51
ATCSI'm so pissed I completely upgraded Jack with both upgrades and all ultimates and nothing will unlock for me. What a terrible launch.
Posted by ATCS on 07 Sep 19 at 20:04
Smudgenat0r@Delta748 Components do not carry between play throughs all upgrades must be obtained in a single play through.

RicKuRuKuSIf I missed a few in chapter 1 is there no going back I take it? Hate playing through games multiple times, this achievement is looking like a hard pass for me lol
Posted by RicKuRuKuS on 08 Sep 19 at 18:08
XerostomiaThanks for doing this, and this was my fear. It makes sense that the upgrades can only be during 1 playthrough. That really sucks because that is almost 400 collectables.

I started the campaign and finished ACT 1. I think I missed a couple in ACT 1. I think I will wait a few weeks and try to get everything done in 1 playthrough (Insane, all campaign specific achievements, collectables, etc) when a complete walkthrough gets made.

Knowing the Coalition, they will probably make stupid achievements in the future (inconceivable, only use starting weapons, hardcore, play entire campaign as Jack, turn off your monitor and finish the campaign inconceivable solo hardcore with only melee etc)…...

The SCHWARTZ 00Do you need all 289 components to fully upgrade him?
Posted by The SCHWARTZ 00 on 09 Sep 19 at 07:03
XboxFreak36@The SCHWARTZ 00: I have read that you need 273 components to fully upgrade Jack.
Perhaps wise to add it to the solution?
Posted by XboxFreak36 on 09 Sep 19 at 07:33
Ron Jeremy R6It's definitely a missable achievement..

JOMAN70does anyone know if components and jack upgrades carrying over from saves? tried to go back i get the missing components in act 1 and said 0/16 when was at 9/16
Posted by JOMAN70 on 09 Sep 19 at 17:17
SmokeNashtyJoman70. You need to collect all components in 1 run. As you cannot do chapter select. They don’t carry over only collectibles do
Posted by SmokeNashty on 09 Sep 19 at 18:37
Smudgenat0rFuck sake about to give up with this game. Was fine until act 3 where it told me I’ve already collected 48 components (which is how many i got in my first play through) now I can’t collect them and I’m missing 48 components. Don’t want to have to start again. FFS angry
Posted by Smudgenat0r on 09 Sep 19 at 19:48
Smudgenat0rSo this get’s weirder. Just done a new game chapter select act 3 chapter 3 and now it’s showing 1 collected in the open world and I have 179 components already unlocked. No idea what’s going on.
Posted by Smudgenat0r on 09 Sep 19 at 19:55
SashamorningI restarted from the chapter where I got Jack. I'm not messing around with this one.

I'm definitely not even going to try to finish this game, and I probably wouldn't even play it if it wasn't on Game Pass. The goal seems to be to make people play this as long as possible, not yo enjoy the game whatsoever. They just want to log as much time and as many players as possible, and I'm dumb enough to buy into it for however long I do.

Excellent guide. It looks like we'll maybe have most of the components by the end of act 3?

LAZY SHIKAMARUXOh boy, looks like another playthrough for me...yayroll
Posted by LAZY SHIKAMARUX on 10 Sep 19 at 11:04
SmokeNashtyEverything was fine until I got to act 3 ch. 3. The components I got on my first play through were already taken. I opened up a safe that was supposed to be 5 in and it was empty. Same with a few other locations. Any fixes? I don’t want to do it again I’m almost done. I heard you only need 273 so I might have enough
Posted by SmokeNashty on 10 Sep 19 at 11:13
skydogcom@Smudgenat0r Mine is total 177 when I select Act 3.3, 115 for Act 3.1. Maybe we don’t need another full run, just start from one chapter and go on.

Lucio1544Can confirm, this does not need to be done in one run and you can use chapter select.
Posted by Lucio1544 on 11 Sep 19 at 17:41
Zasta 360GameTV? What exactly you mean? Chapter select for the components def. not working. Upgrades too for me personally.
Posted by Zasta 360GameTV on 11 Sep 19 at 18:05
Lucio1544It works for me, when I use chapter select I keep all the components I've found up until the chapter I've selected.
Posted by Lucio1544 on 11 Sep 19 at 18:41
Zasta 360GameTVThats strange because for everyone else, it doesn't work. We have 0 after the chapter select.
Posted by Zasta 360GameTV on 11 Sep 19 at 21:23
UrchyBoldI just tried it now (I completed the game on Intermediate and got like 100 odd upgrades) To test I selected Act 2: Chapter 1 on insane and spawned with 10 units already
Posted by UrchyBold on 11 Sep 19 at 22:03
Biathlon1992All the components i took in.previous chapters were available for me in chapter select, but.all ultimates.weren't. I making it through the.campaign for the 3rd time n on act 3 ch 3 most of the components on the map are gone after the cosmonaut training facility
Posted by Biathlon1992 on 11 Sep 19 at 22:17
Lucio1544So I went back and selected each chapter one by one to see exactly how many components you start off with in each chapter.

Act1 Ch3 - 2 Components
Act1 Ch4 - 10 Components
Act2 Ch1 - 16 Components
Act2 Ch2 - 34 Components
Act2 Ch3 - 38 Components
Act2 Ch4 - 47 Components
Act2 Ch5 - 101 Components + Flash ,Pulse,Shock, and Stim Ultimate Upgrades
Act3 Ch1 - 122 Components
Act3 Ch2 - 212 Components + Cloak Ultimate Upgrade
Act3 Ch3 - 256 Components + Hijack Ultimate Upgrade
Act3 Ch4 - 274 Components
Act4 Ch2 - 289 Components + Barrier Ultimate Upgrade

So my original comment still stands; you don't need to do this in one run and chapter select can be used just not in the same way that it is used for collectibles.

Again, This only works with chapter select otherwise you'll only be able to use the components you've found in your current run.
Posted by Lucio1544 on 12 Sep 19 at 08:08
Zasta 360GameTVLet some clarification Lucio, you don't use chapter select via new save slot, right?
Posted by Zasta 360GameTV on 12 Sep 19 at 10:12
Lucio1544I do.
Posted by Lucio1544 on 12 Sep 19 at 11:38
BlyckertGreat to see all collectibles in one guide so that you don't have to switch to different guides. One request though, please add the timecodes in the video description so you can click to the one you want.
Posted by Blyckert on 12 Sep 19 at 21:54
Zasta 360GameTVYou mean the video descrption on YT? Is not possible because the charlimit there but there is a pinned comment with the timeline under the video. If you mean here on TA that is not working because if you click a timecode a new window to YT opens and the video starts there and honestly it is a lot of work because url=timecodeurl - Time - url close and that for all times.

Here an example - 01:50
The code is url=h***s://] 01:50 /url and you have to convert the time in seconds. Sorry maybe for 20 collectibles but not for 401^^ this will takes days....
Posted by Zasta 360GameTV on 12 Sep 19 at 22:26
x KiiNGPiN xI’m at the beginning of Act 3 and am probably missing around 40+ components, how would I exactly use chapter select to only need one campaign run?

TheLightMasterFor those that had collectibles go missing due to server issues, the latest patch seems to have restored them. I had a lot go missing and when I tried to get them again, they would appear in the world but I couldn't pick them up again. My tracking has recovered and I just go the achievement.
Posted by TheLightMaster on 14 Sep 19 at 06:51
I Ebon Hawk IChapter select doesn’t work for the ultimate upgrades. It keeps your components but not the ultimate upgrades. I tried to chapter select Act 4 Chapter 1 after getting the ultimates in Act 3 Chapter 3. In Act 4 Chapter 1 I was missing cloak and hijack ultimates. You have to play all the way through from Act 2 Chapter 2 to Act 4 Chapter 1 while getting all ultimate upgrades for the achievement.
Posted by I Ebon Hawk I on 14 Sep 19 at 06:56
BlyckertOh okay, it's in a comment. I have an extension which blocks all comments, explains why I didn't see them. Using a second monitor and running the video at 150% speed seems to be okay.
Posted by Blyckert on 14 Sep 19 at 13:08
J2B9So in Act 3 ch. 3 you have a point where u shoot a bridge. All the guides say you can get the collectibles in ch. 3 and don’t mention it being missable after that point. So for me all the components and stuff beyond the bridge became unattainable because of the bridge being down so I can no longer get to that side of the map. I’m just not sure if this is normal and guides should mention getting everything before shooting the bridge or if my game is glitched because maybe the bridge is supposed to go back up after that mission and mines didn’t.
Posted by J2B9 on 14 Sep 19 at 21:24
Zasta 360GameTVYou can definitly through the bridge after you shooting down the bridge for the train. I collect nearly all open world collectibles and co in chapter 3 in my video.
Posted by Zasta 360GameTV on 14 Sep 19 at 23:40
ZappCattYes, you can drive under the bridge even after taking it down. They just wrote into the campaign that you needed to get under it while the team had it up to lend urgency.
Posted by ZappCatt on 14 Sep 19 at 23:46
J2B9Well then it is my game that’s definitely glitched thanks. The bridge is completely down on the ground and unable to be driven under or around or anything as I just crash into it unfortunately.

Biathlon1992My friend got the cheevo when he joined my coop session as soon as i got the last upgrade for jack. So I'm pretty sure everyone can join someone's game, he'll take last upgrade and cheevo will pop. If someone wanna try, just message me on xbox. It'll save you hours of collecting all the stuff. I've completed game 3 times n restarterd act 3 ch 3 for hundred times cause the game is glitchy
Posted by Biathlon1992 on 15 Sep 19 at 03:45

RastaRishI can also confirm what Lucio1544 says works!
I was 11 components short on my first playthrough. I chapter selected (on the same save file) ACT II where I only had 87/106 components found. I located 11 more than I had on my first playthrough so I was at 98/106. Exited to main menu and then chapter selected ACT IV and it increased my overall total. Although not by 11 (which is weird, but I still had the 15 to collect in Homefront and BOOM I had enough to fully upgrade Jack and got the cheevo!)
Posted by RastaRish on 15 Sep 19 at 17:13
JCDRANZERThank you Y lI lD lD O. He helped me yesterday as well as a few of my friends.

I had the misfortune of the game just bugging out on me and 2 friends when we were doing the campaign on Insane in co-op during the Launch weekend and a few of the components and collectibles in Act 2 just bugged out on us preventing us from getting the achievement. We were stuck at 97% and then a week later, like a godsend, I came across the post above.

Many many thanks mate. Much appreciated.

MiZ Dove OGDude. DUDE! Thank you sooo much. I was 28 short and couldn't figure out where they could possibly be. I followed written and video guides to find that 28. Nothing that i hadn't already gotten. When i saw ur video and the descriptions mentioned "Open World", that's when I knew what was wrong. I had no idea they were strewn about and was only following guides for locations. UGH. Thank you very very much

Euler13I'd just finished Act II Chapter 5 and realised that I had missed 5 components (101/106). I know we don't need every single component to unlock this achievement, but I'm an obsessive completionist. Below is how I obtained the missing components.

Go to Chapter Select. You will be told it will overwrite your current save. Confirm by pressing A.
Select the chapter with missing components. This will create a new save and when I started it said I had 0/106. Panic not!
You can grab others if you want, but it will make no difference at all. Do what is needed to obtain the components you missed on your previous playthrough. In my case I finished the chapter, but it would be good for someone to confirm that you can just Exit to Lobby.
When I went to stats it still said 101/106. However, the next day I checked and it had changed to 106/106, so it appears that there is some delay in the total registering.

Note that the way this works may change with updates, but hopefully this will be useful for other players who encountered the same issue.

RedDoog888When I chapter select it says 15/16 components on each chapter in the act. Do I have to find the exact on I missed or just one.

How can I tell what ultimate upgrade I missed or did not unlock
Posted by RedDoog888 on 27 Sep 19 at 06:27
iM3RKxYOUxCheers guy I followed your guide right up to 7mins left, tried to go to the artillery battery and the bridge is closed so I’ve wasted my time going through all these collectibles to now find I cannot proceed. Fuck this game. I’ve tried reloading on numerous occasions and changing characters etc even reloading a previous save and it’s still shut!
Thanks again 👌 would be nice to know that it was missable..

bangerbass87Amazing guide thank you!
Posted by bangerbass87 on 28 Sep 19 at 18:45
Zasta 360GameTV@iM3RKxYOUx There is no "missable" collectibles. The bridge bug is just another major glitch in the campaign which have to fix by TheCoalition.
Posted by Zasta 360GameTV on 28 Sep 19 at 21:07
iM3RKxYOUxOh okay, thanks for the response, guess I will have to wait until they send out a patch before I can continue 🙄🙏
It might be worth recommending that people should get those first before they shoot the bridge to avoid the glitch 👍😁
Posted by iM3RKxYOUx on 29 Sep 19 at 08:22
SRJBCan confirm. Reloaded the last chapter of act 4 and fully upgraded Jack, they gave me a hundred eighty eight components as I had collected them all throughout two different playthroughs

I ailurophile IF**K this broken ass game!!!

just followed the guide and at the end of act 3 there are a bunch of components that are not there! i know i can chapter select for them, but its also not letting me pick up the upgrade for doing the water tower locations!

can someone who has an act 4 save help me out to pop this stupid cheevo?
Posted by I ailurophile I on 10 Oct 19 at 14:17
WhiteRabbitEXESo do you really need to get all Ultimate collectibles in one continuous run? I missed the shocker one on my first play through and no matter what I do it relocks if I try to jump ahead. Really sucks if I have to replay everything *again* because of one damn upgrade...
Posted by WhiteRabbitEXE on 26 Oct 19 at 10:14
Snitty 1How are people getting this through chapter select?
I didn't go for this on my first playthrough because the servers were messed up but i did pick up any i came across.
Second playthrough i followed this guide, got all ultimate upgrades and all components until act 3 when some components were missing, presumably because i picked them up on the first playthrough.

At act 4-2 i didn't have enough components to upgrade everything so tried chapter select. When i respec the points there is enough to unlock the upgrades but the achievement won't unlock because some of the ultimate upgrades have been re-locked by using chapter select.
Posted by Snitty 1 on 27 Oct 19 at 14:50
DrSchlepensteinDo you need to finish the chapter before after collecting the collectibles you missed? Or can you exit out after getting them/reaching a checkpoint?

Posted by C3LLDW3LLER on 09 Nov 19 at 13:04
MushaConvoyI second @Snitty1, Chapter Select ONLY works if on your very first playthrough of the game you collect ALL Ultimate Upgrades.

On my first playthrough I did not. Now whenever I do Chapter Select, even through a new Save Slot, I retain only the upgrades I had on my initial playthrough. Does not matter that I have unlocked them since, and have them in my current checkpoint in Save Slot 1. The components persist through Chapter Select, however if you're missing an Ultimate Upgrade, they do NOT.

Short Version: Chapter Select ONLY works if on your first playthru you got all Ultimate Upgrades.
If not, you need to play through Act 2 through Act 4 AND pick up 273 components to buy the upgrades. The moment you chapter select, even on the same save slot, the Ultimate upgrades revert to your very first playthru.

Darren XBLIf anyone gets the bridge glitch on act 3 chapter 3 just reload the chapter while on the same save. You will have all progress upto that chapter and no need to replay entire act like others say.
Posted by Darren XBL on 15 Nov 19 at 03:08
Fl0ydPinkert0nI beat the campaign awhile ago, but recently decided to go back through for the collectibles and components.

Everything was going smooth until I hit Act 3. That's when I some of the components were missing. I decided to push forward because I understand you don't need every component to fully upgrade Jack. However, after getting the last one in Act 4, I still ended up 6 short.

I started a new save today. This time starting from Act 3. I got about 65 components in before some were missing again and quit to the main menu.

Then, I went into the Campaign, Load, picked a new save slot, and opened up the "select chapter." From there, I scrolled through each act and chapter, and noticed that I wasn't missing any components.

The next thing I did was load up Act 4 - Chapter 2. I skipped through the cutscene, and once I had controller of my character, I was finally able to apply all the upgrade and get this achievement.
Posted by Fl0ydPinkert0n on 22 Dec 19 at 02:38
Frantic4This is in regards to the components for Act 3. Collect everything outside before heading into the satellite base. The components seem to despawn for some reason and the only way to get them is to restart the chapter and run though. Confirmed this with my Co-op partner.
Posted by Frantic4 on 30 Dec 19 at 06:18
JODAWok i have enough components, ive started the last chapter on act4 upgraded everything on Jack and have 16 spare components and it still wont unlock. stuck on 97% HELP PLEASEEEEEEEEEEEE lol
Posted by JODAW on 26 Jan 20 at 15:36
DethPhant0mFl0ydPinkert0n‘s comment should be highlighted... He is correct, and has saved me pulling my hair out over the bugged components for a for 5th run.. Load in a empty slot, pick Act 4.. Chapter 2.. If you’ve collected all the components across multiple play thoughts it will remember all of them and give them to you in that final chapter.. Meaning you need only upgrade Jack to get the achievement..

Act 3 is completely broken and across the co-op run, my insane run and my casual run I collected all the components but not in one run.. (Due to component disappearing bug) hope this comment saves someone a lot of time and stress.
Posted by DethPhant0m on 17 Mar 20 at 20:42
Guirec730So if I do chapter select, all of the previously collected components will still be available? Does that mean I can go back to Act 1 with a beefed up Jack, or does it only log what you had acquired UP TO that level (and if so...let's say I missed 20 components in Act 2 my first time through....if I find them on my second time through will I always have them when I chapter select Act 3?)
Posted by Guirec730 on 26 Apr 20 at 18:01
ZemidekMissed one ultimate upgrade on my first play through, went back and got that upgrade twice and it re-locks after chapter select, any fix yet?
Posted by Zemidek on 07 May 20 at 05:26
GYS GHOSTi m stucked at 97% because i missed one and nothing happened when I re-take it , for some people this achievement is missable
Posted by GYS GHOST on 29 May 20 at 06:44
FMacLoudYou can do chapter select. I missed an ultimate went back to act 2 collected it and then I needed to use chapter select again to go to act 4. The missing ultimate was available but I needed to re-upgrade Jacks abilities. I selected act 4 - chapter 1 which means I also needed to collect the deadly overload ultimate again. Once I collected it the achievement unlocked.
Posted by FMacLoud on 29 Jul 20 at 22:43
DEolii have trouble, everytime i continue my campaign the components are reset to 0... what can i do about this? i want to do 1 act or more / day cuz i don't have the time for 1 full campaign play.. this can't be the components don't lock into the 0/...
