The fourth DLC for Defiance is Gunslinger Trials. It adds a new storyline that takes place after the main story, and nine new co-op arenas to challenge you and your friends. It also adds new pursuits, weapons, old west-themed outfits, and three new achievements.

The achievements aren't as time-intensive as those found in the 7th Legion DLC, but they are just as grindy.

For Golden Badge, you'll need to complete all nine of the new co-op arenas with a gold rating, much like the various arena achievements from the Castithan Charge Pack. They aren't too difficult, but you'll want to tackle them with a group, as doing it solo probably won't earn you gold.

Master Gunslinger tasks you with being proficient with pistols. You'll have to kill 5000 enemies and reach skill level 10 with them, and fully mod one to get the achievement.

Finally, there's The General. This one is basically earned by completing all of the DLC's pursuits, so it'll be the last one you get.

This DLC fares slightly better than the last, as there is some new content included in the co-op arenas. The new arenas can be pretty fun, and one provides a pretty good spot for grinding kills for whatever need you may have.

Golden Badge 25
Complete the "Golden Badge" pursuit

The "Golden Badge" pursuit is completed by earning a gold rating in all nine of the new co-op arenas from Gunslinger Trials. The new arenas are unlocked as you progress through the DLC storyline. There are nine maps, and you can access three each at Overpass, Shondu's Consulate, and Iron Demon Ranch.

These can be played in co-op, with up to four players, so it's best to go in with a full team, as you'll have a better chance at getting the gold score. For tips, please see this thread:

Once you earn gold on all nine maps, you'll unlock the achievement.

Master Gunslinger 25
Complete the "Master Gunslinger III" pursuit

The "Master Gunslinger III" pursuit has the following requirements:
  • Use Pistols to kill 5000 enemies
  • Reach skill level 10 in pistols
  • Fully mod a pistol
Do the following to earn this achievement:
  • Kill 5000 enemies with a pistol. You actually have to be the one you scores the kill for it to count here. Fortunately, any pistol kills you made before the DLC will be counted, so you might not need that many. If you need kills quick, a great farming spot is the Matron fight at the end of the "Matron's Nest" arena. You can run around killing the infinitely spawning skitterlings and ignore the matron. This will also help rank up your pistol skills. Use a Volge Thunderer Pistol if you have one, as the splash damage it causes works wonders on crowds of skitterlings.
  • Keep using pistols to level up your pistols skill. You can use the spot mentioned above for an easy spot for pistol XP. Otherwise, level 10 will come with continued use of a pistol.
  • To fully mod a pistol, first get one of each type of mod: stock, barrel, clip, and sight. If you need to buy some, visit the pistol mod vendor at The Crater. Go into the mod menu and attach all four of them onto one pistol to complete this task.
The General 25
Complete the "The General" pursuit

This requires you to complete "The General" pursuit, which is finished by completing the following pursuits from the Gunslinger Trials:
  • Complete the Contract for Hire pursuit
  • Complete the Golden Badge pursuit
  • Complete the Master Gunslinger III pursuit
Do the following to earn this achievement:
  • Complete all story-line missions for the DLC. This includes completing all nine new arenas, but does not require gold. You just need to finish them.
  • Earn a gold rating on all nine co-op arenas. See Golden Badge achievement for more details.
  • Kill 5000 with pistols, reach level 10 in pistols, and fully mod a pistol. See Master Gunslinger achievement for more details.
