I'd just like to add to the thread that Silverback melee kills count towards Unarmed and Dangerous. I just unlocked it while going for the campaign collectibles.

I don't think anyone's tried that yet, but I have a feeling it would sort of work, only the people who don't have the DLC would not unlock it - the people who do have it should get it that way though.
some friends and I are going to test it tonight so i will let you now by then.

Could you not flood your internet download (ie, download several torrents or buffer several HD youtube videos) thus the game is more likely to put you into a quick match by yourself with bots, due to your connection being terrible.

It's similar to how some people got the Annex:now with execution rules in Gears 2, due to the fact you could never get the map you wanted.

Granted, you still have to get a Kim bot in your game, but obviously you can just end the game and try again immediately till you do.

Anyway, like I said I can't try it now, but if anyone could try it then it will save me some time later, and hey, it might actually work, making this annoying achievement a breeze.
I'm doing this with about 11 Justin TV windows open, and it puts you in a bot match alone. I've yet to see a Kim though, but i'll keep trying.

How are you getting around not being put on the COG team every time?

The plan is definitely sound, I'm just scratching my head about how to be on the Locust team when I'm the only person in the match.

I've been on the Locust team once or twice, but i'm not sure how to do it.

Must just be random I suppose, though it's not happened to me yet. Anyone else got any ideas? Two controllers and a guest maybe?

This method works.

I just got the achievement myself. I was lucky enough to get in a KOTH match as a locust, and Kim was on the COG team.

You just have to be lucky, as it's random.

For the arcade achievement, do you have to do it all in one sitting?

If you mean the co-op achievement then no, you can do it in 5 separate sittings if you really wanted to.

Just got the achievement right now myself. Took about an hour to get everything setup, and to get lucky enough to a Kim bot in a TDM game, but then it was plain sailing. You certainly need a bit of patience when the game tries to find you match for a good 5-10 minutes, and when you frustratingly get a Kim bot on COG when you are on COG as well (as happened to me a couple of times)

I personally had a season 5 torrent of The Wire downloading and seeding at the maximum to flood my internet speed, so not only do I have this achievement, I have an awesome TV show to watch as well - bonus.

I would advise anyone struggling with this achievement to give it a go. It can be easier than organizing a whole group of people to get a party match set up.

Quick edit (if Pants sees this post) Might be worth putting this method into the achievement guide. Definitely works, and is now confirmed by two people.

My kills are not counting for killing 50 enemies with command center on chapter 4.

Edit: The tracker shows up after you leave the command center.

Seems to be the best option that I've seen thus far. Will try it tomorrow. Thanks for the idea.

^^this

Quickly reload checkpoint after killing the seeders when the locust stop coming. You can start the command center mission again and you can get your count. repeat.

Just a tip for I'm rubber you're glue. You can reflect bullets coming from another COG soldier. I had downed a soldier but still had the crosshair on him and anther COG soldier shot at me and the bullets reflected to the downed COG.

I can confirm this works. We had a guy play with us who was using Jace and didn't own the DLC and the achievement popped for everyone but him.

Just so some of you know, the Death From Above/Unarmed and Dangerous achievements are a little funky. My HOD weren't registering in standard, so I had to switch to arcade and it unlocked. However, when I continued the chapter to get loader kills, they didn't register, so I had to switch back to standard, and it worked fine.

This is taking forever to find a match. I think they are on to us <looks over shoulder>

I cannot get it to let me into a game with this method. I've been waiting for 20 minutes at least. Am I doing something wrong?


Edit: I'm thinking having TOO many things bogging down the internet may be the problem?

I got the cheev on arcade

I don't know if this has been mentioned but it's not in the guide so I thought I'd mention this bout Unarmed and Dangerous. I was playing this on arcade to quickly blitzthrough and get to the point and turned on infinite ammo, perfect reload and instagib melee and the kills were not counting, I tried this twice no luck and then I tried again without instagib melee and it unlocked, so it looks like having instagib melee will make the kills in the loader not count

Did you get it sorted? Best bet is to get a group of people and make sure you're the host, and leave once the game starts, then do the same, but with someone else as the host.

In the end, I found it easier to use Torrents, because you can alter how much of your download and upload speed it is using at that moment.

If it's not putting you into games, just be patient. It will put you in your own game eventually. Once you are in that game, no-one will get in with you providing you keep your download going as is.

Great idea. I was using Justin tv also based on an earlier comment (perhaps yours). The torrent idea I will try later when I get home.
