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.

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?

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.

The easiest way was brothers til the end buy you missed the boat
All you needed was one friend with both of you having signed in a 2nd controller.

Then just keep searching together in quick match until it came up. After doing that with a mate I was gutted I wasted 2 hours trying to do it with two parties of 5!

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.

Use the achievement trading thread for this.
This thread is for discussing the easiest method for getting the Foreshadowing achievement.

Anyway, I just got a team of 5 and some of us threw on our second controllers. We started a match and the remaining people in our party searched over and over and ended up finding us. Only took about 30 minutes, if that.

I boosted it today with one other person and my two extra xbox's. Had one xbox and its guest and me and my guest on my team. Then my friend and his guest and my other xbox and its guest. I got my own room first try and my other xbox found me second try. We were on the alpha playlist btw.

You don't have to quit out or wait for the teams to switch if your quick. Way I did it was my friend and I quit out, leaving one xbox on one team and the other xbox on the other. I joined my third xbox's session in progress and my friend joined my second xbox's session in progress. Then we got it done. Same method would apply if you were boosting with three other people.

I had someone today message me asking if they could kill me and I let them. I'll play as Kim for awhile but I doubt I will let people kill me if its in a gametype where I care about my k/d. I was in koth so I didn't care.

So I ended up helping like 8 people get the achievement and FINALLY was lucky enough to get a helper on the other team, while being Locust. That achievement was a bitch.

I noticed someone kept executing me so I let them keep killing me and I PMed the word Foreshadowing? and they said that I had helped them get it and they'll repay the favour, next match I got 5 kills and the match was finished, One team was really good and the other was shit and kill thiefs about, then 1 hour I tried and I kept getting put on the Cog team and had to go out so I'm only half way

But yes, asking people seems to work better as I find troubles getting a team together for horde or beast, like finding 10 people is going to be easier

You only need to find 3 other people. If each of you sign in a guest account then split up into two parties of four and search in alpha.

Honestly, we should start a huge twitter and/or facebook request to Rod Ferguson. If we start the campaign, I am willing to bet that Rod would assist in someway!
