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.

IMPORTANT: If you get to Round 19, Wave 2 and die, DO NOT throw your controller through your window! Press A to Try only get set back 1 round.

And yes, I can confirm it will take at least 4 hours!

I've tried this one by myself and with friends. Every time, enemies stop spawning on Round 4, Wave 4. FML

I am Lvl 69. So I used another controller/profile as player 1; I was player 2 obviously. Took me about 2 and a half hour.

It's DLC like this that just totally bones a game, which probably explains why here it is 2011 and no Borderlands 2. By the 10th round of this crap, I was so bored I was ready to vomit. Seriously 2K? Like WTF were you thinking? The weapons drops were absolute crapola. Waste of good money for his dog of a DLC and only 125 G achievement pts.

I used a level 15 character for the first player and my level 52 as the second player. It took me an hour and ten minutes to get half through The Gully. It took a total of 3 hours to get the achievement, Not bad timing.

(more info)
I would try out The Gully first because it's the easiest of the 3 challenges map wise. It's very small and easy to control. It's also a great test as to see if you are ready for the challenges. As I said in the previous comment, I used a lower level character as the first player because all the enemies will be about their level instead of mine (which is 52) and it makes it a heck of a lot easier to deal with. Also go in there with powerful weapons, It doesn't really get challenging until you are about mid-way into the challenge and that's where those powerful weapons come in handy.

Here's what I don't understand. I already have to beat all three arenas anyways for the side story (and get the certificates from Moxxi). So do I have to do that THEN play another 20+ rounds?

Anyone want to help with the specifics, thanks.

Why is everyone getting so sweaty? It's easy with a level 1 character + your character. It still takes a while but it's easy.

I guess it'd be more fun if the breaks between rounds wouldn't take so long and the enemies wouldn't hide so much, to me this just makes it annoying...

I'll be going for all of the arenas on 12/3/12 at 5pm Eastern Time. If anyone is interested in helping me my gamertag is FoxxEatsCookies. Just message me and say you are going for the cheevo. I have a modded shield and a modded gun so it will drastically cut down on the time. It would be super helpful if any willing to help also had some. I sadly no longer have a mic due to my new cat -__-

Monday, March 25, 2013 @ 03:21:22 AM

i've just taken 10 hours to do this w a lev13 hunter hosting/splitscreen w a lev69 hunter.
i am deffo using a lev1 character for Hellburbia & Angelic ruins but i absolutely KNOW i cannot do this alone. i couldn't get past lev4 on 'prove yourself' in Gully!]
i think i gotta do Crawmerax again for a decent 3000 w +60% health shield. i use a lev69 C.Rifle w 320dmg/FR12.5/Acc.90 but even vs lev12 enemies it's so tough.
or maybe i should just let the lev12 host die?do i have to restart if i let the host die in a round?

did hell burbia 1st sunday and the gully 2nd monday. both solo. have to say the gully was easier. some of the enemies just stood still after spawning. couldnt use the sniper every single wave because of close combat. though the gully was easier than hell burbia, the amount of time it took to go through all 20 rounds was similar. thank god the skags werent able to jump off the map. on to angelic ruins in a couple of days

This actually went very well today. The host was a level 33 hunter, playing with me (lvl 69 soldier) and a lvl 57 siren. The host was only there to host, not actually playing (made good horde bait, though, luring them straight into my turret), but the other two of us were active combatants. We cleared this arena in 2.5 hours.
