Shield Breaker Help

Is there a way to track how many shield breaks I've done, because I've counted myself doing 25 of them, but no unlock.

Private game or public?

Also, do your kills still count if you fail the mission?

I actually found an easier way and that was to do what the achievement says.

Load up mission 3 on easy and blaze through it there are 3 shield enemies in this level and each run takes around 5mins once you have played it a couple of times.

After you kill the last 2 shield enemies you can just run to the end of the mission.

Achievement just unlocked once it hit 25.

Private. Don't know about the second question.

Did you guys have any luck getting this? I'm still unable to get it after about 300 kills in Co-Op with the Electro Gun.

If you look at the stats page, it is campaign only - can't do it in co-op.

Not true. I got it yesterday in co-op. It tracks between both the campaign and co-op.

Doesn't for me - I am still at 17 because I haven't been back to campaign since finishing it

It's like this:
Everything you've killed when you reach a checkpoint gets "saved". So if you get 'x' amount of shield breaks between checkpoint 1 and 2, and fail the mission before checkpoint 2, you lose all of your progress/kills/stats you gained after checkpoint 1, which is where you start again. I put "saved" in quotes because it's not 100% saved in the sense that, if your xbox crashes, even if you've been past the last checkpoint, you lose everything. Yup, everything gained during that match; however if you quit out after a checkpoint, or your host freezes/drops connection after a checkpoint (equivalent to quitting out) then you keep your progress up to your last checkpoint.

It didn't unlock for me either in co-op, despite having most definitely surpassed the 25 drop requirement - with an electron mace. I had no choice but to farm drops in SP, and only then did it unlock. Luckily it wasn't that much of a pain to do.

As did Auburok and IDiivil. I guess it's down to luck if it pops on MP.

Personally, I loaded up Scandinavia in co-op and got to the checkpoint where the shield guys run up on you. I think it's after the first ammo crate.

If you've snagged the electron mace from the Sergeant by the previous APC, you can take their shields, let them kill you, and restart from the checkpoint. The shield breaks counted every time I restarted the checkpoint and they continued to accumulate until it popped. You don't have to restart the entire mission, just the checkpoint!

didn't pop for me either in co-op, so i tried something -- you have to be the host (or playing by yourself) before it will count. not sure why, but i didn't realize this until it randomly popped after i hosted a match.

i know this is fact because we ran through Scandinavia with a friend (who was hosting) & he got it, but when it was my turn, i didn't.

*sidenote* u don't even have to play the full mission, just up until the room where the UGV is. once the stats on the left side of your screen disappear, rinse & repeat.

I had some issues with this - I never could get it to work in single player.

Starting a private co-op solo game on normal difficulty in Scandinavia did work. However, even then I was struggling to get the count going up consistently. What I've found is that you need to shoot the AI with the electron mace once to get the AI to drop the shield and then kill them afterward in a separate shot - that is, holding the fire button down the entire time doesn't cause it to register.

Also, it may be prudent to do multiple runs on Scandinavia before shutting off the Xbox (3 should do the trick - you only need to do from the start to the 2nd checkpoint to get 9 of them, which should be easy enough solo on normal). I noticed at some point after I got the achievement the counter has dropped back to 0!
