no matter wot i tryed i couldnt get this to work for me! ive got to mission 2-2 where you gota go into the underground and jump on the train by keeping the 6 ppl alive and hideing them in cupboards but no survivour texts poped up so i got annoyed (was running round for hrs) and slaughtered everyone lmao. ive done it the way you say to step by step and ive tryed other ways like: killing snowflake and skipping denyce alltogether (and a lot of other trys that aint worth listing) it just wont bring up that txt! everyother guide of yours ive read fot this game has worked perfectly for me so its gota be something im doing wrong! you got any ideas for me?

You should add that they are counting the one mans trash as a survivor mission. I never got a call for one mans trash. But I like a couple of other people couldn't get a call for more than 7 survivors total. So having already ran through the story line I remembered the one mans trash mission. As soon as I finished it, bam, the welcome to the family mission popped.

Idk what's happening with my game but I saved the first couple and never heard about Esther so I did lost and got welcome to the family. Started to YC and checked for where. Did welcome to the family and still no Lenny or Esther. I'm going to drag them to the missions but did t know if anyone else got this issue

Thanks to Takahashi Demon for finally giving me a fullproof method to get this achievement. I tried the op's way three times and it never worked for me. Thanks again man anyone having trouble should really give Takahshis method a go.

This worked good, and Welcome to the Family wouldn't pop for me either but after I visited the pawn shop and talked to the looter who opens it, the mission popped

I'm currently trying this, but when I went back to the YC to get Lenny, there was no Lenny. Wouldn't it be easier to get him and Snowflake after giving Katey her Zombrex?

EDIT: So yeah, Lenny doesn't exist in my world apparently. However, I rounded up the other seven suggested survivors and proceeded to case 1-2 and as soon as Rebecca joined the group the achievement popped. Also, I suggest taking Chad and Doris' guns away because friendly fire sucks.
As of 4/28/14 my Borderlands 2 trading post is officially closed. I am no longer boosting, trading, farming, etc on the Xbox360. I am entirely on the Xbox One now. If you want to play Xbox One with me, send a friend request with a message to GT zI Drucifer Iz (those are capital I's).

nice guide

I had a little different plan, i first got the lady in the pharmacy then got zombrex then got snowflake then lenny (cause he despawns for me in like every run if i don't pick him up cause i forget about him) then i dropped off snowflake then got Lashawndra and her husband then got chad and his wife then got the old lady and went to do case 1-2 and got the achievement cause rebecca counts as a survivor.

Maybe that robber standing at the gate to the pawn shop counts as a survivor or something?

EDIT: Okay, well I can say that the dude that dies in the cutscene for Meet the Contestants isn't being counted as a survivor against the max of 8. I'm on my way back to the safe house with 8 people now and I just got the message for Meet the Contestants.
This worked. Welcome to the family was not showing. I did everything Op was saying but nothing was working. I saved Denyce and Snowflake. I then picked up (but don't save them in the safe room) Lawshawndra, and Gordon, picked up the Lost couple then Esther. I made my way back to Yucatan to grab Lenny. Luscious lady rang. i killed her and Gordon threw up lol. Then got Contestant rivalry. Killed him then got the call about the CURE phycho. I killed Vikki then him still no call. I was on case 2 now waiting. I was about to restart but read this.

If Welcome is glitched for you follow this guide. I ran over to Moe's on the Silver Strip with my group i talked to the looter. After the conversation ended i immediately got the Barn Burner case. That case will net you two people. I ran over to the Arena, grabbed the nearby fire extinguisher, put out the fire, shut the door, and talked to the man. He will join you and then you wait a few seconds then his wife Trixie will join. That makes 8 and the achievement showed up.

Thanks for the guide. Me and a friend both got the achievement at the same time unlike the other survivor achievements.
