What the hell, Chatterbox??
What were they thinking when they put this mess of an achievement into the game? Were they using their brains at all?

There is no way to tell how far your progress with this achievement is. The exact requirements also seem to be unclear. And there are people reporting glitches happening to them with this achievement. Some claim that you can talk to Whitman twice in the beginning, once before collecting 50 salvage and another time after but before upgrading the axe. I have seen the second set of conversation on Youtube so I know it exists, but so far I could not get it to show up in my game.

So not only do they put in a completely stupid and useless achievement that is impossible to track, no they even manage to screw up its coding so it doesn't behave consistently.

Good job on that one, devs, good job. Maybe instead of working on DLC to milk more money off, you should try to fix the bugs and inconsistencies that are still in the game.

Yeah some progress display would be good but there are far more "unbelievable" achievements in other games. For Tomb Raider I find the Multiplayer achievements more problematic. They may be impossible to earn alone after some time.

I wonder.. I think there are quite some people out there who want those achievements for completion purposes. So it may be possible to team up and "farm" them together. Haven't touched MP so far though.

Chatterbox?

I don't see an achievement called Chatterbox in the achievements section?
crizzl Jun 7, 2013 @ 10:26am 
It's hidden.

I am also in need of doing some multiplayer achievements in the next weeks. Especially the one winning in every mode of ranked games. I didnt find one single ranked match since I play multiplayer :(

It's easy..

Talk to whitman [have 45 scrap max]
Get dat scrap
Talk to whitman
Upgrade pry axe now and only now

Now follow a guide and you are good to go. I started an easy run as I missed this and had it in a few hours. You can stop the run shortly after you get back from the endurance.

As far as MP cheeves go, that isnt a problem. I only have one achieve left, and I added 3 other players [from a thread here] for that one, just have to schedule a time when we can all do it. The rest just take persistance playing MP, and "quick match" is still very active. The MP is fun, albeit horribly unbalanced in several areas.

Most MP achieves you dont even need to play MP anyway, they can be farmed.

Well, I managed to get both sets of conversation with Whitman to show up now. But I noticed that after none of them the TR saving symbol showed up in the lower right of the screen.

Does anyone else get that symbol after one full set of conversation? The achievement guides tell that the symbol showing up was a sign to confirm that the conversation counts for the achievement.

I doubt that it did not count for me since I am absolutely sure that I went through all the conversations with Whitman now. But it's still a little strange.

Here is a link to a guide if anybody needs it

I think most of the characters have 3 different sets of conversation each time you talk with them. What I did was just kept talking to them until it didn't let me anymore. The saving symbol always showed up for me so I would guess if you don't see it then the character still has something to say (or you just didn't notice the symbol). I ended up getting the achievement the first time.

I think i'll start this one soon

Shopaholic achievement is also bugged i think.I have all multi chars but i am pretty sure i didn't buy all upgrades but still i got the achievement somehow :D

I'll guess it was my luck.
crizzl Jun 9, 2013 @ 3:43am 
I'm not quite sure about that but if you have DLC stuff for example or bought some characters first you don't need all upgrades. Determining is a specific amount of outputted salvage and since the last patch the general chara is no longer essential. Multiplayer achievements are really strange.

for whitman you need to run around for a while it takes time do not open the door until you get the whole conversation check the guides they list exactly what he says
Virsalus Jun 9, 2013 @ 3:01pm 
The guides may list what you need to hear but the exact requirements for Whitman's conversation sets to show up are not so clear, especially the second one. I have checked with multiple guides and none of them have that information.

I managed to make it show up by collecting some more salvage after talking to him for the first set of conversation and collecting 50 salvage. But it's still inconsistent.

The requirements are talk to him until he talks no more before strengthening your pry axe. There is nothing inconsistent or difficult about it.
