Why is this?

Who's responsible for doing the achievement checklist? Because it seems none of the new achievements are saveable on the checklist... and thus, gamer score is always off...
We can't figure out the cause, but when we add DLC achievements to a list, it screws with the coding and ruins the checklist. Easy fix, though. Check this thread:

I like Courtyard. Stay at the top where the sniper spawns and use shields to block off one or more of the entrances.

This guide is perfect thank Pants for the work in putting this one together and getting the new Downloads in there as well, doing the local matches worked out perfectly for boosting did almost all just like that and got half of the achievements done.

GOOD LOOKING OUT

You may want to note that with 1999 if your system turns off for any reason (Auto Off Included) You lose all the matches you've played unless you quit out or finish the match

I never knew that. Useful info for some. I already got it but I find some maps better than other depending on the waves. Very cool.

Party Like It's 1999 30
Play 1999 rounds of multiplayer (any mode)

I would first suggest finishing off all the achievements that require public matches and Horde mode since those rounds played will go toward this. Once you're done with all those, get all the weapon/execution achievements (if boosting those by yourself) as those will also count. Now the easiest way to get the remaining round played is to setup a match with the following settings:

Match Type: Local
Game Type: Warzone (or Execution)
Total Rounds: 15
Round Time Limit: 1
Number Of Bots: 1 (or 9)
Bot Difficulty: Casual
Bleed-Out Time: 60
Friendly Fire: Off
Map Selection: Host
Weapon Spawning: Customize (Mulcher for all)
Map: Day One

Now you will need to have either a wired controller, Plug n' Play recharge kit or a guitar/drums controller. This way your controller will not shut off and the game will keep going. Because of the short time and large map, the bot (if using only one) probably won't find you before the one minute runs out, which will end the round in a stalemate. If for any reason he does find you, that is only one win out of fifteen that he needs, but it won't happen often. You might question the use of the Mulcher as the weapon, but this way if he chooses to pick it up, he will move much slower and take that much longer to find you. If you try the nine bot method, the two teams shouldn't have enough time to kill the entire other team. Again, whichever works best for you.




Why don't you just play the f*cking game?

For your information, I got my Party Like It's 1999 legit from working on the original Public achievements and the new ranking system (currently rank 37), but the guides on our website are supposed to give the quickest, easiest way to earn the achievements... which is what I've listed.

So, why don't you mind your own business if you can't understand the point of our achievement guides.

i am getting so sick and tired of seeing kids like you on here screaming this. read this website's URL first. www.xbox360achievements.org. the entire point of this website is achievements and how to get them as quick and easy as possible. that's what these guides are for.

if you want to "just play the fucking game" well fine go ahead, but don't come on here and harrass everyone whose looking for a shortcut. maybe some of us don't like the MP enough to play 1999 rounds.

just take your stupid 1 track mind and go to a website with more people around your intelligence level. i suggest gamefaqs.

Hey, calm down mate. I understand your irritation with him but no need to go that far. Civility please?

On a more lighter note, has anyone noticed that the achievement symbols you get from the map packs are not showing up in the War Journal? That is, they're replaced by the silver Crimson Omen on a black background?

Yeah, I've noticed this too. Maybe Epic just didn't update the achievement pictures or something like that, or maybe an error.


I have a suggestion for the Horde achievements on the Snowblind maps. Fuel Depot has some pretty good camping spots in those trailers where the sniper/torque spawn. If you had two guys in each one it works out nicely. Ammo box spawns are also near the sniper/torque spawn.

Yeah Courtyard is good but you can still be attacked from 3 sides so I chose Under Hill and sit inside the room just by where the shield spawns.

As described, you only need to complete the first ten waves of each FMP map in Horde mode, not the entire run. This can be done on Casual with any number of people. The maps are:
  • Gridlock
  • Subway
  • Canals
  • Mansion
  • Tyro Station
These maps can be obtained for free if you purchase a NEW copy of GOW2, or purchased for 400MSP through the marketplace.

do you have to do it without dieing or just do the first 10 rounds ?
