Don't know if this is the right section (if not please let me know and I will fix it) or if this has even been mentioned.

An easier way to get It's Good to be the King achievement is using the Social Matches option. Obviously this will require you to have all the map packs. I simply search for a game, I'm hoping there isn't one and I get put in with bots on my own host. As the leader is based on XP you will be leader for the first round. Simply stay near the beginning and let the bots do the work. Altho watch out for the enemy spawning in your own spawn! That got me the first time and kill any enemy that may get close to you.

Anyway, if all goes well your team wins the round and you get +1 added to the achievement. Press start, return to lobby, and search again. If no games are found you are host, and leader yet again.

Rinse and repeat. This does work, I did this 3 times so far but then people started to join :P Hope it helps.

It's not a bad idea, but this guide was written a long time before the social matches came into being. In general, I'd say any of the achievements that require a certain MP gametype are now easier to do in social.

My friend told me that In order to get the insane difficulty achievement and the co-op one both need to be on insane.

He say they patch it , so the 2nd player can't be on casual.
He already have the achievement , he only helping me with it.

So do they patch it ? Or he could be on the easy while i'm at insane. So I can get the Co-op story and insane achievement?

These are still there:
Warzone - Execution on Map Packs
KotH - Annex on Map Packs
Submission - Guardian on Map Packs

Otherwise, you'll have to jump into a playlist that has all the maps in it.

I need the Dark Corners and Combustible Horde achievements. I'd probably start with Blood on the Sand.

Quick question about Veteran Gear - can I get to Level 100 then do some quick maps on the Snowblind maps and then will it unlock?

just got my icy dead people by doing 1-28 on grind yard then 28-50 on under hill
I noticed that it says here that it can be done on any combo of maps, but when you hit guide while viewing the achievements it says it has to be done on one map.
just thought that this should be updated on that page

Annex: Now With Execution Rules 75
Win an Annex match on each Flashback and Combustible Map Pack map (public matches only)

This is the only difficult DLC achievement (so far) as it requires Public Matches, not Local like the others. You will need to win an Annex match on ALL the maps included in BOTH DLC packs. Annex is a team game so you have a greater chance of success. Find some friends that will help so you can communicate better. To win you need to capture and hold certain areas around the map. It is much like KOTH except the capture spot will move during the game. The full list of maps is as follows:
  • Flood
  • Gold Rush
  • Fuel Station
  • Gridlock
  • Subway
  • Canals
  • Mansion
  • Tyro Station
You will either need to spend 800 or 1200MSP for this achievement, depending on if you purchased a NEW copy of the game and got the FMP for free.

Note: Both sets of maps have their own playlist in the Public Match section, so choose one and finish all the maps, then switch to the other. Again, having a team with you will help so you can all vote for Annex games.[/QUOTE]



I Just Found out it you get together a good party of 5 people and do this in a social match against bots it will unlock these as well and i suggest friends because the computer i believe is on insane i just got one 7 more to go hope this helps

This is a bit of a dumb question but is there a way of checking which maps you have left to do for some of the acehievments like "annex: now with execution rules" or some of the ones that want you to do horde waves 1-10 for all of the maps of some of the map packs?

As far as my knowledge goes, there's no way.

I just wrote all maps down I finished for the achievements.

And so I know I just need to win Subway Annex to get that annoying achievement -_-"
I try this for months now and still they won't let me on Subway map (and year I know on social they cycle alphabetical. But still no luck.

Play Social. Maps come up in alphabetical order.

I can't even get them on Social - I thought Ranked would give a better chane but no luck there either plus it's full of assholes and clans.

Ranked is definitely not the better chance. Social is by far the easiest way. If nothing else, get some friends together so you can get host and just keep playing until the maps you need come up.

If not noticed already,there is a much easier way to get "Veteran Gear" or any other level achievement if one of your friends has it.

All you have to do,is go to his house,recover account and so on.Then start a private match of warzone,settings don't really matter and enter,normally you should unlock the achievement right when the match starts.

The same can be done for any Dark Corners DLC horde achievements,only then a private match has to be started in horde. (And the map you need)
