Gears of War 2

Gears of War 2 Achievements

It's Good to be the King

Win 10 rounds of Guardian as the leader (public)  

Guardian is what used to be called Assassination. However, now the other team will spawn until the leader is killed. If both teams are playing defense, the games will go on forever, so find a good offensive team (but stay toward the back of them if you're the leader) and go hunt the enemy leader. You must be the leader for these wins so this will take a bit longer. Must be done in a Public Xbox Live match.

The first round a leader will be chosen at random, then to become the leader you will need to either be the one to kill the opposing team's leader, or the person on your team with the most overall points if you lose the round and their leader lives. You can't be leader twice in a row, even if you kill their leader while you are leader. In this case leader will go to the person with the most points. If you are the leader, have most points and have killed their leader, it will go to the person on your team with the second most points.

If anyone wants to boost for any and all public matches I'm willing to help out. Besides helping people get other achievements goes toward my 1999 and my 100000 kills that I still need to get. Hit me up. Just so everyone knows I live in the U.S and I'm in the central time zone so keep that in mind when contacting me.

Thank god I finally got this one today about ten mins ago. Anyway this one is going to take you a while if you half way suck like me, but if your good this shouldn’t take you long at all. You must win ten rounds of guardian with each map having the possibility of having up to five rounds on one map. The first team to achieve victory in three separate rounds will win the match. Now if you kill the leader you will automatically become the leader the next round. If you happen to die while being the leader you can still get the point towards the achievement as long as your team wins the match. The best suggestion I can offer is to get a group of friends together that are pretty good and invite them to a social game of guardian. The first leader is completely random, and then it is determined i
