Wanted Dead or ... DEAD : Minh Young Kim

Seriously guys.... have you seen what kind of crap this achievement pull off? Lets face it, Kim is hardly a fan favorite... with all the very cool character in the game, plus the fact of the battle mistress medal, plus that Alicia and Barrick are new characters that are totally bad ass, Kim is pretty rare.

We loaded a KOTH(a mode i despise) only to be able to execute him a lot when we get one, took some time and finally one showed off. The game turned into a retro charging/chainsawing fest... with Kim as the target of course. I think the guy was pissed off, at one point he left the game.... 2 of us 3 had finished there achievement but well.... i do agree the game was totally ugly as crap...

Its not a bad achievement in itself, i just wish there was a counter part to it, as the only thing close to a counter part is playing 10 matches as Zeta... but hey... most of them will be either Alicia(battle mistress at the same time) or i saw a bunch of Tai, seem like he is most popular then i tough he would. Kim is really the rarest of the bunch... sadly.

There should had been a "Avenge Minh 10 times by executing RAAM in MP" so more people would take Kim.

Yeah this achievement is starting to tick me off a little. It's the last one I need. I'm already frustrated with how rare Kim is. The one time a Kim bot showed up, he was dead before I could even find him. I was playing Execution though, might switch it up and try KOTH/CTL later.

Real easy to boost with 2 lobbies of 5 people. I never expected to get the achievement but I ended up in a lobby who were going for it. If your trying to get it legit then I say good luck because you'll need it.

I did it legit, i killed 3 KIM as bots in execution but that was not going super fast... so we switched KOTH so we could kill more, of course you have to get one showing up, this time it was a real dude, so harder a bit to kill but well, i was retro charging all game long and finally got it. I didn't tough about having a full lobby going for it... im not really into that kind of thing. I may boost for a super dumb achievement on a game that is almost empty but thats about it.

Of course this achievement could had been easily optain but playing, its because we are achievement wh*res that want it the first day that its getting on our nerve. If i played as RAAM in all games, i would had got it in less than a week im sure, its only 10 kills... but well i wanted it as soon as possible as i wanted to switch character(try that new theron)

Im glad tough overall the achievements are pretty fair for that expension, there is not even one "insane" achievement, wich im glad, cause i fear RAAM could had been really annoying too, maybe not as much as the queen but still....

Well, even though I don't want to, I'm setting my multi characters to Minh/Raam until i get the achievement. I would advise everyone to do the same. It's a small price to pay for the benefit of the community.

Good advice! I was pretty disgusted today with how many people were playing as RAAM, but then weren't Kim on the cog...

I ran into someone playing as Kim, got 8/10, and then he left. I haven't ran into another for too many KOTH games to count. sadface but I'm satisfied with this progress

Good news for anyone going for it, because of this I'm leaving Kim as my COG multiplayer untill the next DLC which as far as I know isn't even announced. But yeah I can understand the frustration behind "kill a specific skin that noone wants to use, with an execution, as a specific skin, when everyone else is going to be gunning for that person as well."

Technically you only need 6 people to boost. 2 hosts and 4 people as splitscreen. Worked on Gears 2 for Annex.

Well I have set Kim as my COG character, so when i'm him I let the RAAM users execute me, I wish others would do so too.

Only I can't at the moment because my xbox is exploding.

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.

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.

I've been playing as Kim in hopes people would excute me. I never play VS so I really don't care but I find NO ONE is playing as RAAM and if they do, they don't bother trying to excute me. Guess there is no point in helping out the community if no one actually goes for the achievement

I will be playing as Kim for ages now, he was always the character I used in gears 1 and 2 so if you see me online you can go for me, but I wont be "allowing" people to execute me. This achievement will be one that comes with a bit of time, if your so bummed about getting it already even though the dlc has been out 1 day I would suggest boosting it.

I'm set to Kim and RAAM just for the fact that if I'm expecting to get the achievement off of others I ought to be doing the same. Unfortuneately I've only gotten on the Locust team since the DLC launch and I have yet to see a single Kim but loads of RAAMs.

I think I'm going to troll as Kim though to be honest. Go for grenades all the time and each time they go to execute me I'll just blow the nade.

I'm using Kim but just to get people to come after me so I can kill them, people have work to execute me cause I'm not letting them execute me so easily.
I'm using RAAM so I can get my achievement.

I think this achievement was not well thought out. Someone on these forums had a good idea where they could do a weekend event where everyone was RAAM and Kim in a separate playlist and call it Old School Rivals Weekend.

I was happily playing KOTH, and someone messages me asking if I wanted to exchange executions, so we went to the corner of the map away from the hill over two games and both got it

It does not work. When you are in the standard playlists you will notice that you can't have a party larger than one team for each particular gametype.

I got lucky, first game online this morning there was a Kim player, sat in spawn, I executed him 7 times, on next game he was present, got one execution. I spent 5 hours searching games for Kim and nothing, then got my last 2 kills with some luck in a game I found, all this was KOTH

They should have a Kim vs RAAM execution game mode event for a weekend or something.
