While on Noveria, after you obtain Lorik Qui'in's data forcefully make him testify to help the internal affairs agent. After this is done you will get +25 renegade points. Before you leave talk to him again, question him on matriarch benezia, then scroll to ask another question, a new set of options will pop up including one to testify against anoleis, press that one to get him to testify again you will get another +25 renegade points. This can be repeated until you get this acheivement.

Edit: As of March 31/2017 this has still not been patched! Feel free to rack up all the Renegade/Paragon points to your hearts content (Thanks to DarkWingSpartan for last reporting in)
TULLY13I am pretty sure this was patched but this achievement shouldnt be causing major grief anyway

Sleepy Dogg 007Oh my god it worked! thankes your the best :D

BishopbabyIf you pick the 'Blue' option here you will get paragon points so basically you can get both of the achievements at the same time at this point. Nice work.

BadBoydie360Just another add point to add (mass effect wiki as the source):

Using the "Lorik Qui'in Glitch" to acquire unlimited Paragon and/or Renegade Points has been known to corrupt save files. Thus, certain decisions made in Mass Effect are flagged as the opposite choice. This can prevent certain characters from returning in Mass Effect 2, or certain emails from being sent to Shepard. To prevent any corruption of data, it is highly advised and stressed to avoid the glitch if carrying over the save for import since it is not required to maximize Paragon and Renegade Points.

LoneDireWolfess@ Badboydie360: Theoretically, couldn't you save BEFORE you partook in this glitch and then after you got the achievement(s), load it and then not do it? Please correct me if I am wrong, because I would like to avoid the glitch myself.

TheJimiHippieGreat guide, because I didn't have do a renegade play through. Kept hold of 4 skill points for intimidate (had 1 I must have gotten for free) and saved before the renegade dialog option. Deleted save afterwards. Worked very well - thanks for this.

ZzTheBoabzZ23rd Jan 2013 it still works, thanks for the guide

o BerserkrThis solution is a bit misleading. It would be great if you added 'Lolatron's' contribution, that you need either 5 points in charm or intimidate for this to even be an option. Great find, other than that!

Redd FiveGot it today. Only took 4 cycles, but I had been working on Renegade this playthrough. Glad I can go back to Paragon. Renegade Shep is a whiny brat!

ChicovengerJune 27th, 2016. Still works! I think it's safe to say this will never be patched.

DarkWingSpartanWorked like a charm. Thanks.

J1R2D3R4MI think I did something wrong. I was able to intimidate Lorik once, but choosing the Matriarch dialogue option did not cause the intimidate choice to appear again.
