clearing cache resets kills?

Has anyone found this to be true? I may need to clear my cache to fix some game issues I have and don't want to lose my seriously kills.
Thanks

Put your save to Cloud before doing so, just to be sure but I cleared many times without issues.

I don't think clearing the cache is the issue with this achievement - I cleared my cache at least once when I was going for Seriously and I unlocked it around 11,000 kills. This achievement is one of the biggest mysteries of all achievement glitches ever - this game has been out for around 5-6 years now and no one can figure out for certain why the achievement unlocks at radically different times for everyone. There are plenty of theories and some better than others but no one as far as I know has definitively proven what the issue is.

I don't see why it would. Wouldn't every tracking item for achievements in Gears be affected then?

Clearing your cache only get rid of old game updates and can fix some issue you may be having with a game, it will not affect you kill in the game.

coming at this from a slightly different angle, is it worth clearing my cache just to see if it helps with the Seriously... glitch?

i'm on 13245 kills with no achievement. while i've heard the stories of 20,000+ that was for people who played a lot of 'legit' online games in which kills didn't count for a variety of reasons.

i got less than 20 kills 'legit', then got to around 2500 boosting weapons kills. then after a gap of over a year i have been three-xbox boosting (two people, 3 consoles each) to get to where i am now ...nowhere!!

No clearing your cache doesn't effect it. The seriously glitch was explained on Epic's forums years ago by a member of Epic, I believe it was either Rod Ferguson or Mark Rein. It's because of something called a "trust system" where the game doesn't count if there isn't a trustworthy enough player left when the game ends. Each players trust rating is based on how much they quit or get disconnected. The full explaination was posted on Gamefaqs forums but i'm not sure if it's still there.
