View Full Version : Penny Pincher Not Unlocking?????

03-05-2009, 02:06 PM
So I was going for the Penny Pincher achievement, and I won the match on Heroic at 8:46 with only 6 units alive not including my Prophet, with my total high score at 1882 and the computer at 221, i also had the fog skill on to increase my overall high score and the achievement did not unlock??? am I missing something here, can someone please help me to figure out what I did wrong

you can ONLY build 10 units, not be left with less than 10

thank you I just got the achievement. they need to clarify more in the achievement guide/instructions on how to get that

must be 10 units, i found best way to get it was:

start up a deathmatch skirmish

be forge and play against cutter on heroic

as soon as match starts build 2 vehicle bases

soon as one is built que up 3 grizzlies

when 2nd one built que up 2

as you get a grizzlie send it straight over to enemy base with the warthog u get at start.

(note i got this off the main achievement guide)

i followed this way. took me only about 5min. it works for beating the ai under 10min and with 10 or less units. make sure to follow it like it says and destroy all buildings and turrets before they can be finished. otherwise the AI will get out hunters and decimate your squad.

Just build full turrets and use the prophets beam to guard your base while you make 2 scarabs.

2 scarabs is only 1 squads, so you'll get the achievement. ( and the achievement for finishing with 2 scarabs )
