Kill off the baddies until there is one left. Watch the clock, at the one minute mark a pteradactyl comes out. Then 30 seconds later, another emerges.

Make sure its a co-op match and not versus. Find a buddy and start it up. Shouldn't take too long.
Get 1st place on in game score board using default settings.
Tough achievement, but not impossible. Staying alive longer adds to the bonus points you get from enemies. And if you are good at killing the pterydactyls, just stay in level 1 as long as possible, killing enemies without taking the eggs. So when they hatch, you can kill them again for more points.

You may have heard that this achievement is glitched. Apparantly its been fixed, but I don't recomment trying for it if you can't even get the wave 30 achievement. For the experienced Jouster only.
