The bitch of this was a few weeks back, my friend and I were on the 18th round and finishing up wave 4 and the last enemy had taken the zero gravity jump off the map. We couldn't continue because we couldn't find him. Has this ever happened to anybody else?

for anyone who does not know how to get to the 20 round part, you firstly need
to finish the three 5 round area mission called prove yourself from the board
at the bottom of the stairs, go to each area and do the 5 rounds, after that,
go to the board and collect your reward, just behind the board a door will open
for the 3 arena's with the 20 rounds took me a long time to figure out hope
this helps some people who missed it, need help just message me on xbox live
and i'll do my best to help.

Wait I have a question. Due to the achievement picture, does that mean you only fight the crimson lance on this arena part?

Comment #9 by DezSnaker
Friday, March 18, 2011 @ 02:57:00 PM

To answer your question #8 'There is mainly enemies met at the beginning of the story, brutes (Bully's). Outlaws (Bandit's) Etc.

To get this achievement, you will need to clear all 20 waves of the arena, you need to clear 5 first in the mission prove yourself before you are capable to get these. And it will take half an hour (at the least) to finish 5 waves.... This is best to do multi-player because if one player goes down, you don't have to start from the round before all over again.

I'm finding it even easier be doing it split screen with the other being lvl 1.
This makes all the enemy's lvls about 13 or less.

Monday, June 27, 2011 @ 03:55:33 PM

For those doing split-screen with a lvl 1 character. How do you get the lvl 1 character to host? I must be doing something wrong because all enemies are still level 51.

Comment #19 by darthchimp182
Thursday, September 08, 2011 @ 08:38:55 AM

does this all have to be done in one sitting? or can you finish a round, quit out and pick up from there later?

Comment #20 by adrianq
Thursday, September 22, 2011 @ 05:13:06 PM


All arenas have to be done in one sitting. No saving or quiting.

At the end of each round you do have a chance to view your stats.
That would give you time to take a break. Not sure if it goes away after
a certain time.

Comment #21 by adrianq
Thursday, September 22, 2011 @ 05:18:11 PM

Ok guys, I finished all 20 rounds Angelic Ruins using split screen and a
low level character. It took me a brutal 3 hours. My eyes were not happy!!

I am thinking doing it with someone else might shorten that (hopefully).

So, if anyone out there is low level (below 25???) and wants to do Gully or
Hell-burbia, let me know.

I have a level 56 Hunter I will use to join your game and we can mow through it.

Send me a friend request and we can set something up for Sunday.

I will be on after 1pm PST (GMT -8).

Comment #22 by adrianq
Friday, September 23, 2011 @ 01:59:29 AM

In response to my #20 comment....

What I meant was that A particular arena has to be completed from start to finished

I DIDN'T mean that ALL of them had to be done back to back.

sorry for the confusing.

It only takes me about 3 - 3 and a half hours to beat. I am a level 52 solider but the first player is only level 15, Making the enemies level 12. It's rather easy lol.

Comment #38 by asylumspadez
Wednesday, May 30, 2012 @ 04:49:45 PM

The worst thing about this is getting over the hump. I can get through 8-9 rounds before I start getting annoyed and simply want it to be over. This generally last until I reach the final 2 rounds then I simply do them as fast as I can so I can stop playing.

Comment #62 by Fried Chicken72
Tuesday, December 25, 2012 @ 06:34:46 AM

When I first tried this, I played for 3 hours and only reached round 15, naturally by that time I was pissed off by the difficulty/repetitiveness and rage quit. So now I'm just gonna use the easy way out by setting up a lvl 1 as P1 and annihilating everything with my lvl 46 Hunter as P2.
Love this game, but the Underdome dlc is just damn bullshit :(

Saturday, June 25, 2016 @ 04:55:43 AM

I did this today with a friend of mine. I'm a lvl 69 soldier and she's a lvl 48 hunter. It was tough at times (especially with the Vampire and no shields modifiers) but we managed it. It took us a solid four hours. After completing the 20 rounds in Hell-Burbia, it was 9pm my time and after midnight in hers (she's German) so we had to call it quits then and make plans to do the Angelic Ruins and The Gully another time.

If it turns out that we had to do all three arenas in one go, *twelve hours* of fighting through waves of enemies, I am going to be so pissed.
