Best/Easiest way to boost "Foreshadowing"...

...is to simply play the game with Raam/Kim as your default characters and politely ask someone on the opposing team to help you.

Has worked for me and 4 friends so far - had it done in under 5 mins today!

Considering I was in a 10-player group organised here last night which had nothing after THREE HOURS of trying to get everyone in the same public game, it makes a lot more sense!

I just ran around with my Snub pistol in Torque Bow Tag matches and executed all the players that were Kim that I saw. I got 4/10 in a few matches.

Can't you get banned for boosting this achievement too?

So your saying a should send a random player a message on the other to to change his character to Kim next game so I can target and kill him.

..like that's gonna work.

I tried that earlier today, I saw a kim and asked him to let me execute him. he said no and expressed his opinion on boosting in a very colorful way.

I have a sure fire way which has worked 100% for me

FLOOD YOUR DOWNLOAD & UPLOAD

I used king of the hill, it will find 0 public matches on everything and put you against bots, just keep loading until your Raam & Kim appears with the Cog

What do you mean your "Download & Upload"? I get it that you won't be connected to another game with human players due to bandwidth usage, but what do you overload? Sorry if it's an obvious answer, I can't think of it. Thanks.

This doesn't actually work nearly as well in Gears 3 as it did in Gears 2. They no longer let people with shit connections host games.

I was playing KOTH and usually each match had a bot on each team. I was lucky that i FINALLY, for the first time ever, got Kim in a match and he was a bot. I just ran round mad with my chainsaw looking for him, got all 10 in one go.

Had this not happened I was planning on politely asking the person i saw as playing kim for executions, it's definitely probably the easiest way.

Have a party of 5 and join a game together then have the party leader quit out and join back in on someone and you should all be jumbled up except for who ever rejoined in those two will be together and everyone will be random

No the easiest way to boost it is to gather 2 boosting lobbies together and have the leaders prefer each other and search in a dead lobby like ranked anything and find each other. Not the most perfect method but it will work better than asking a random on the other team.

I like this method also, or just get a few boosting parties going on at once at the most dead playlist on gears

That would make it even easier. Still searching for one group or 3 other groups is still easier then asking the assholes who generally populate xbox live for help.

Indeed. I think what is needed since ALOT of people are trying to get this achievement is just to set a date and time for a MASS RAAM vs Minh Foreshadowing boosting unofficial gears event. Anybody who wants this achievement just join at that time and date.. sort of like a flashmob of us getting the achievement

Worked for me. I returned the favour in the following round.

Not everyone on xboxlive is a dick, some people are genuinely quite nice


Anyway, if you see "Quantum Binman" knocking about, send me a message and I will let you murder me a few times for free

Should add - the guy who helped me was in a game by himself with bots. Maybe those are the best people to ask because their team won't get angry?

Turns out the very first guy I ask in a warzone game responds with a '"yes plz!!"
It was just us 2 for about 6 matches straight. unfortunately it took a lot longer than a should have since I was on the locust side 3 times in a row but in the end we both got the achievement.

-sigh- I tried this. For every RAAM on the other team (3) I let them get the achievement, then invited them to a party and asked them to return the favour. They agreed. Next game i was Cog. And after that. Then I was locust and all three people were on my team. Then I was Cog. Two people quit, leaving me with one other person willing to help me if i was locust and he cog.

So naturally the next two games I was Cog and then finally, we were both locust so he quit. Fuck this game. That took fucking hours. For nothing.

Actually, it does work. One of my XBL friends did this in the first 30 minutes the game was out and voila...achievement unlocked. Maybe it was because the DLC was so new though. My guess is that it will be tougher to do this now since all I see online are RAAMs and no Minhs. Selfish Gears players everywhere!

Alpha playlist

We did it on Alpha playlist. It's the smallest population, and it's only 4 vs 4 so everyone can fit in the party (or you can add guest controllers as needed instead of people). Usual tricks apply I guess - party leaders being in same region, everyone preferring each other. Wait until one team has all bots then the other team searches. Once you're in, the teams may not switch roles for a few matches. STAY IN! They should switch eventually, and it'll be faster than searching again because even if you got lucky with a successful first search, don't assume your next attempt will go as smoothly (it didn't for us).

Glad to get this out of the way. Terrible Achievement design. If it were, "Raam executes 10 COG of any variety", that would have been amusing with an army of Raam's for a few days.

Too bad it isn't execute Raam as Kim. I played as Kim for a few hours last night and must have executed at least 20 Raams. Of course I was the only Kim I saw the entire and most of the times I died by the hands of a Raam, I was insta-gibbed by a gnasher so I bet they were facepalming themselves.
