Survive first 10 Horde waves on Combustible Map Pack maps as a team  

As described, you only need to complete the first ten waves of each CMP map in Horde mode, not the entire run. This can be done on Casual with any number of people (despite it saying "as a team" you can do this alone). The maps are:

  • Flood
  • Gold Rush
  • Fuel Station

The Combustible Map Pack can be pruchased through the marketplace for 800MSP.

survive as a team, does this mean 5 people need to play together? won't work out with less than 5?! thanks for the answer. don't want to end up trying hard with less than 4 people excluding myself and not getting it in the end.

I was able do this solo, normal difficulty, doing the following in the later rounds:

Flood: mostly camped by the mortar/hammer spawn, although it takes 3 shields, placed in between the cars, to make a good barrier. You can seal up the nearby grenade spawn point with just one shield though.
Fuel Station: pretty straightforward, just hung out on the roof. You can put a shield on the stairs to seal it up- I don't think the enemies can operate the elevator.
Gold Rush: camped in the underground/tunnel portion, behind the stack of beams. 3 shields were needed- 2 to block boomers near the edge of the beams, and 1 spare to hold if a bloodmount jumps the beams (although I tried take them down before they got the chance).

this would be much easier with at least one more person on casual. i've tried solo casual and made it 5-6 waves in on all three maps. message me and i'll work with you on all three maps 1-10
