I can't believe I spent hours trying to do these on Hardcore because of this acheivement guide and roadmap, I'm quite angry actually for not getting your facts straight on this. Not only was getting the "Alien" rank and 50x multiplier cheeves much more easier, I got them on my first try!
People, do these 2 acheivements on Normal, if you are lucky, you might even get them on your first try like me.
Other than this blunder on your part, this is a great guide other than your advice on these 2 acheivements. And yes, the 2nd stage of the DLC is the best way to get your 50x multiplier, just be sure to DO IT ON NORMAL!
So you're calling out the guide author for apparently offering bad advice, yet you don't say what level you got those Achievements on that were so "easy" in Normal mode, or which character you were using, or which perks you enabled. It sounds like you did it on the DLC, which means the original advice given for the main game is valid. I do not have the DLC, and I didn't get close to those Achievements in Normal mode on my first run, especially the 50x combo, but did get them in Hardcore.
