Barrel Rolled - Everything You Need to Know

Barrel Rolled...
...requires less than 5 minutes.
...can be gotten in a System Link, Versus game
...doesn't require that the explosion kill the special. If the fire from the barrel kills them, you still get the 'cheevo.
...doesn't unlock for Witch-kills

Still Stumped?
1) Sign in a second controller as 'Guest'
2) Create a Versus match, set to System Link
3) Player 1 to "Bill", Player 2 to "Infected"
4) Infected, go wait to spawn near the barrels (in the first narrow alleyway)
5) Player 1, leave spawn.
6) Player 2, spawn. Go hug a barrel.
7) Player 1, run/gun your way to the Special. Shoot the barrel. Let the flames finish the job.
8) Ba-DINK!

The guy left out that you should start the game using a local server, not a dedicated server, if you are doing the system link route. To do this just keep pressing 'start game' and then 'cancel game' in the lobby until it automatically starts itself. From there achievements should unlock normally, except for the sacfrizzle one. Warning it may crash

I did this with two controllers today. I killed the smoker character, then spawned as the Boomer. I damaged the boomer with two pistol shots from a distance so the survivor bots wouldn't kill him. (best place is on the roof off to the left of the starting point)

Move the boomer to the barrels in that first alleyway. I would normally put the Infected on top of the barrels and the achievement wouldn't unlock. So I put the boomer a few feet away from the barrel, but parallel to it. I then came around the corner and shot the front most barrel and the achievement unlocked.

So for those having trouble, try and put the infected to the side of the barrel and not on top of it. Hope that helps.

This isn't working for me. I got the second pad to be a hunter, got him down to 36 health, he stood 3 feet away from barrel and then player 1 (Zoey, me) shot the barrel and he died by the explosion. Still no achievement

I'm thinking on clearing my cache and trying it. Think it'll work?

EDIT: Don't worry. I've got it now. Single player > Kill team mates > find barrels > wait for special infected to get close > shoot > Pop.

But for me, the Boomer walked too far passed the barrel and the explosion made him wobble a-side so I ran through the fire and he followed me which caused him to set on fire. He burned and exploded and the achievement popped!

So if the explosion didn't hit them or if they aren't on fire. Just get the Specials to walk in the fire till they die. Seems to work

I was able to get a local server one time for a Crash Course Achievement, but I can't seem to duplicate it for this one without crashing the game. Can anyone help out?

Any survivors to pick doesn't matter. That achievement is pretty dodgy and very picky on which special infected to be unlocked.

I did this by the system link with two controllers.

Smoker-no achievement, then Boomer-no achievement, and finally last, Hunter-achievement.

Some people get an achievement from kill Smoker, Boomer or Hunter. It doesn't matter if you try to put SI on a top of a barrell or anywhere nearby as long as they caught by blast/fire and get killed by it.

this is how i did it.

for the people having trouble with this achievement, make sure you disconnect your internet from your xbox, or atleast make sure you're not connected to xbox live when you do this, and its guaranteed to work.

In L4D2, the first barrel you come across. I just waited there until a Smoker came by, suicided on the barrel and got it.
