Quality Beats Quantity
Defeat all 50 enemy waves on Guerrilla mode (any difficulty, any map)


Is it true that only the Host gets the achievement?
Viper has a guide up on TA which says so hence I was wondering if anyone could confirm this.

Thanks

I highly doubt that. If so that would SUCK.

Indeed... Here is Viper7 's guide copy/pasted from TA.

>>I did this on the first map. Few tips:

Save missiles for the 2 hummers and the chopper on the last wave.

You can easily melee the guys with the shields when they get into your base area.

In the 47-50 levels using the invisible team streak, you can have 2 or 3 run out at the start of the wave and melee a bunch of enemies for 45 seconds. I think wave 50 has 45 enemies. So you can take out a good chunck of em.

Have at least one team member in the base. All stay in or around it. If you go down, crawl into base before you get revived. Make sure to take care of the snipers and RPG guys on the roofs right away.

Toss out sensor grenades at the start of each round.

Only the host gets the achievement.<<

I could be because only he did the total of 50 waves whereas the others might not have done them all.

Surely someone has beaten this by now that can confirm this. i am only wave 22 so i would like to know before i keep going. Thanks.

it would make sense from the achievement's name, quality meaning the host over quantity, which would be the waves


its not different than the achievments in Gears 3 DLC map pack that required you to host the new maps in private horde, the other 4 guys didnt get the achievment for participating...

GOW3 said you needed to host. This does not. If you need to be host to get this, it should specify.

No I would say quality is your team and quantity is all the shit you must kill, so I would say everybody will get the achievement :drunk

plenty of games have vague descriptions, its up to the developers to create the text, but they're not entitled to make them 100% obvious or easy to unlock....thats why sites like this exist.

With things like this tho why would you participate if you get nothing from it. Stupid really.

I assume you don't have to do them all at once?

If you fail wave 2, you can quit and start again on a different day.

I just played all the 50 waves, and i was not the host. all 3 of us got the achievement

I started it on wave 5 with three others. I was the only one who got it after wave 50. Then today I started it again with the same group and went to wave 10 and they still didn't get it. Maybe everyone has to do all 50 from the start.

I will update the True Achievements solution since justjappie got it. Let me know if anyone confirms also.

Has anyone here done it without doing it from the start?

Thats makes sense. You must do it from start to finish to get it.

We got dc'd from the Ubi servers on 48 and had an option to continue when we got back on. So I would assume that you don't have to do it in one sitting but you do have to be with host when they starts from wave 1.

Ok glad to read all this. Me and my friend stopped at wave 22 so when we pick up and finish we should both get it. Hopefully anyways :)

I joined a game with some friends. We started on wave 20 and played through to the end. They all got the cheeve.

Then, to help me out, we went back and played wave 1-22.

Nothing popped for me. :(

Counter probably only reads fowards, so unless you start at 1, is doesn't commence.

i started on wave 5 and didnt get it i went back to do 1-10 and still didnt get it.

That just repeated what I said :p Because you started at 5, the counter didn't commence. Its not a couter that ticks every wave after you've done it, its a counter that starts at 0 and works up as you do the waves.

So if you do 1-40, then 30-50, I'd bet you'd still get the achievement.

sorry yeah didn't refresh the page from when i left my pc.

yeah dunno i haven't got the AP so i will start for wave 0 again and hope it pops before 50 lol

Yeah, pretty sure thats how works. My friends had made it to level 40, but we started at 20 so we could build up a bunch of abilities to handle the later waves. Airstrikes FTW btw. My friends all got it. I evidently have to play from 22 through to 50 again. :(

It's going to be so difficult beating all 50 waves. Well, for me anyway. Rest of you probably rocked it easy.

In case it hasnt been confirmed, everybody who plays 1-50 gets the achievement

We had our 4th player drop out at 40, so he didnt get it. The other 2 guys and I did after about an hour of frustration, cussing, and controller throwing

Why didn't you invite him back? :/

he went to bed. He acted like when it's 3am and you have to be at class in 5 hours, you need to get some sleep

I know for a fact, that you do NOT need to host an do this alone. I played with my friends and we ALL got the achievement.

Playing locally didn't unlock it either when you choose my console. My brother and I went 1-50 all the way, and no achievement popped after we were done.

Everyone who starts wave 1 and finishes wave 50 will get the achievement. If you lose connection mid game and return, you will NOT get the achievement.

We've done Airstrip twice now with 3 people; which is about the minimum number of players to not scream all the time with restarting waves. Takes 4 to 5 hours. Wave 50 is usually pretty fun as there are about 6 turrets and 3 or 4 airstrikes hitting.
