Gears of War 2

Gears of War 2 Achievements

Friends with Benefits

Complete all acts in co-op on any difficulty (Marcus or Dom)   

I would suggest coupling this with your Insane difficulty run as this will make it much easier. If for some reason you have to do this out of order, that will not affect the achievement. You do not have to be the second player like in the first game, both players will get these achievements. Training Carmine at the beginning of the game is required for this achievement.

Did you guys train carmine? perhaps thats why. Me and my bro got this achievement split screen, at the beginning we trained Carmine rather than just moving on.

When it says you only completed 28/29 chapters in co-op
You might have forgotten to train carmine all you have to do is
start from the begining and press train the rook and complete it and you
might get the achievement other wise you will problably forgot to do
a chapter and have to do all of it again

Hey guys, i am redoing the campaign in co-op and i think i am in trouble as its just me and an afk controller. I am about up to the bit when you are inside the Riftworm and you find that Carmine is dead (NOOOOOOO). The next bit after that is when you have to escape the rolling ball before it squishes you. Is this a problem in co-op and have other people who have used a afk controller found this a problem? As i think that the ball will squish the afk contoller before you can get to saftey.Is so can you please reply back.
