Once you build the barraks in your settlement you can create a jomsviking. Upon creation achievement is granted
ThreeToeDanSeems to be bugged. Have created it and no achievement.

WookieWayneIgnore last comment. Due to my auto save crashing out last night it wiped 3 hrs progress. As a result I luckily got to redo this and it popped straight away! Recommend saving before you create and reload if it doesn’t pop!

NightmarityThis is extremely bugged, I didn't get it to pop the first time. And I started a new save and got to this point again, made a new Jomsviking and it still didn't pop.

DJ BatfinkI've tried multiple times now, building Barracks then creating a Jomsviking and it took me a while for it to work, i also noticed after it didn't work my save files where also showing save data corrupted.
After i got it to work the save files where also fine.

AssK69The issue is Quick Resume. The game seems to have trouble with unlocking achievements after game is resumed via quick resume. Hopefully they can patch it to where ones we’ve earned will then unlock, vs having to start over.

Anyway, if you want your achievements to unlock, full on quit the game (close application) each time you are done.

I missed several achievements and only found this remedy today after googling. This is also on a Series X, been playing since release day. Not sure about any issues regarding One S / One X.

xPCL KraemerI'm still with the XONE (FAT) and the issue occurs... achievement not unlocked!

Dr ScruffletonI agree with AssK69, quick resume f**** this game up big time. Its corrupted my save files, caused the game to crash, and bugs achievements. Never quick resume valhalla.

wolfzero01It took me 3 tries, including restarting the game to get it to unlock, so far this has been the only achievement I've had a problem with in this game

REDWINGS05Similar to AssK69, I had to fully quit the game, but my issue didn't stem from using quick resume. I have the game on disk so it always fully quits out after I am done playing because I usually remove the disc. Mine did not pop at first so I went back to a recent save that was before creating the barracks and redid it. Just before building the barracks I made a save and fully quit the game at the dashboard. When I went back in, the achievement unlocked just fine.

Summary, makes lots of saves for the time being to help with reloading for the achievements if you need to until a patch is sent.

littlemrfiddleAnyone got a proper fix for this yet. Have continued playing the game and still won’t pop and it’s just giving me the s****. Is says I have 50% progress towards this achievement and I don’t know how.
