giving up GROUND CONTROL

SO after reaching round 26 today (and not to mention playing everyday since the dlc came out) and only tunnel 6 and 11 being excavated, and it delaying 10 rounds until another excavation occured my conclusion is: I TOTALLY GIVE UP. Im hoping treyarch will release a patch to make them come more frequently, because this is crap.

Not sure if you've read other posts but you can stop it breaching the first time and if it goes to the same area a second time just leave it alone.

I.E. Say that Tunnel 6 is breaching, you hack before it does, wait a few rounds, it wants to breach Tunnel 6 again. This time you just let it be. You will still be able to get the achievement doing it this way.

I don't know about that. Today I got to round 31, there were maybe four breaches. Now playing at round 12, one breach.

edit: got it now, took me to round 19 and all breaches came one after the other, so three breaches...

I agree, as I have has similar experiences. It's totally random. When I finally got this stupid achievement (which should have been worth 60g to cap the game at 1750g instead of a stupid-looking 1700g lol), I got breaches at rounds 6,12, then the last one at 29. I played with one other person so we had a lot less zombies to worry about. Don't try this achievement with 4 ppl, as the number of zombies in the later rounds are insane and could cause you all to die while waiting for that last excavator. Good luck man, don't give up. I know exactly how you feel.

P.S. A patch to make them come more frequently would be kinda bogus lol. Think about it, once you get this achievement and wanna play Moon for fun, having to stop an excavator every 3 or so rounds would get kinda annoying

i got it yesterday solo and i think i was only at round 15/16...just blitzed through and turned power on in round 1 after racking up points....i was lucky i admit because each of the 3 areas went to breach one after the other...i suggest opening up all the areas and just hanging outside to survive...worked for me

I managed to get this by round 12, my suggestion is if you dont have 2 by round 8 or 9 just start over.

I understand what your saying. Just like everyone else I was having big problems with this. Then I finally got it on round 15. Biodome,11,11 then 6. Didn't do anything different than before just finally got lucky. All I can say is don't give up. I thought about it but had to much time invested in it. Good luck.

So this is starting to take the piss now, round 30 solo, tunnel 6 breached 3 times, bio dome 4 times but not tunnel 11.

Can i leave the excavators in the breach position and still have another breach? i dont seem to get a second breach unless i hack the one that has already activated.

Once you hacked one excavator you can let it breach next time and it still counts.

Well I always got the power on at round 4 or 5 and at latest at round 13 I had 3 breaches playing solo, and I did it like 4 or 5 times and noticed while playing co op it was much less frequent. Could've been coincidence though, never know.

Biodome round 7 or so. Biodome round 15 or so. Had all my team go down on 21 so i had to solo that, Tunnel 6 round 22. So tired of waiting i gave up. Rounds take way to long for it to come.

Breaching is random... so people who think they have a solution to fix it so it's not... you're wrong

you'll probably hate this then. I turned on the power by the end of round 2. Round 3 got biodome, round 6 tunnel 6, round 11 tunnel 11.

got this 2 times in a row like in 2 separate games (yesterday)

I didn't think you could get Moon achievements split-screen? Or is that just the EE?

Either way, One Giant Leap is extremely glitched. I died in the pyramid room when it was breaching 11, and when I respawned in the Receiving Area I got the achievement. It had breached 6 before, but we hacked the excavator.

just had an awesome session with 3 other guys. We got Ground Control on round 12. tunnel 11 on round 3, tunnel 6 on round 7-8? and biodome on 12. And we also got Giant Leap in the next game on round 11-12. We were very lucky and I feel happy now.

Urgh. Just got a round 22, had tunnels 6 and 11 done by round 12 and was then just waiting for the Biodome until I died. Went through half a dozen PaP weapons and spent 5 rounds without a Max Ammo just leading zombies round the mystery box areas. Frustrating achievement, but at least it can be solo'd, and at least when a decent run does come it'll be over swiftly.

granted this is uber random! game 1: level 35 - no breach 6. game 2 - 6 and 11 done and redone so both breached waiting on biodome which came at 24 but i was cocky in area 51 and got downed. game 3 - i paused half way through and lost the overvoice... however the last breach came by 13 and i missed it? frustrating yes!
solo i found easier than multiplayer just because you can stay in control of your game rather than worrying your pal being downed IMO.

try leaving it a few days and come back to it! that works 99% time for me... i.e. COD4 veteran sky dive! - happy gaming
