i guess something like a 1-shot double kill with a weapon?

easy with mortar or grenades but otherwise double kills are hard. maybe its kills in a row w/out dying

Looking at the Achievement title, it would mean killing the whole team (5 people) at once i would assume.

Can't be for killing whole team. Way to hard to continuously do that. Possible but the chances of constantly getting this no. Multi kills seems more doable.

double kills werent hard in the beta since they didnt have to be at the same time but within 5 seconds of each other so if thats the case this is easy.

First chapter of act 3 I believe is the easiest. Plenty of ammo/weapons/troikas and many enemies.

Act 2 Chapter 7 is def the easiest and the fastest. Just check out Nikke84's guide.

Act 2 Chapter 7 - use the ,,No Ammo Pickups" mutator and it'll
boost? the EXP by 10%. Easier to get the 10x multiplier

okay, so i've maintained 10x multiplier on 3 seperate occasions, each on a different chapter, and so far have not gotten this achievement to pop for me. the last one i did was act 3 chapter one, on accident actually. but i had no mutators turned on...does this have something to do with it?

Comment #22 by Mike76x
Wednesday, September 28, 2011 @ 09:31:19 AM

You need to get the 10x multiplier, and maintain it to the end of the chapter.
Then do it ten times. I've only gotten it twice so far.
Act 2 Chapter 7 did it for me once out of 5 tries, that 3rd barge always dodges my shots.

Comment #23 by bigchiefwally
Wednesday, September 28, 2011 @ 10:39:27 AM

ahhh ok that makes since. i keep forgetting you have to do things multiple amout of times to get medals haha. thanks that was driving me nuts.

Comment #24 by ProShooter88
Friday, September 30, 2011 @ 06:00:58 PM

I've tried it on act 2 chapter 7 so many times but I can only hit like 9x n a half I'm always shy ov
The 10x, even when I have it on insane with no ammo pick up..its that damn 3rd barge which I can't hit.
Any other good places for this cheevo plzz???
Plus u have to hit 10x a total of 10 times before u can get this cheevo?

Comment #25 by RiLeY1985
Friday, September 30, 2011 @ 07:35:06 PM

Shooter88 u are prolly missing the gas barg you shoot down after the 2 reavers. if you dont shoot it down fast enough it gets shot down from the ground and wont count 4 u. to shoot it down aim to the front left of the barg. hope this is a little helpful

Comment #26 by stimp313
Saturday, October 01, 2011 @ 06:54:50 AM

Act 4, Chapter 6 was great for me, when your in the submarine. Lots to
shoot and I rarely get hit so the Multiplier doesn't go down. Easy -ish.

if any 1 wants to get his achivement hit me up with a friend request

Comment #28 by smashingrascal
Tuesday, October 04, 2011 @ 05:53:04 AM

I'd say act 2 chapter 7 . the big explosion mutator will help big time together with the super reload mutator. 3 boomshots for a barge and 3 lancers for a reaver(rider)

Comment #29 by smashingrascal
Tuesday, October 04, 2011 @ 05:55:22 AM

sorry fogot to tell that you shoot the 2 barges on the right back side. then kill 2 reavers, wait till the first barge to get to the front, kill the reaver in the mean time. and kill the last barge if you multiplier is 8.5+

Comment #30 by ProShooter88
Tuesday, October 04, 2011 @ 05:11:46 PM

Cheers for the advice riley..but I did exactly that took out all 3 gas barges and even 3 reavers.
As the 3rd flys in past jus b4 the third gas barge arrives and I will still a quarter short of 10x
Does difficulty matter at all as I've tried it on all??
And is it because maybe I need to select more mutators??
As I only have no ammo pick up available to choose from as the rest I dunno how to unlock

Comment #31 by Gone4aDuck
Wednesday, October 05, 2011 @ 11:43:44 AM

@30 same here, i only have the no ammo and friendly fire on. (all ive unlocked) And i only get to 9 3/4 too!! :(

@18 nice guide, even though its simple enough,
being prepared was what made it easy to get through.

Comment #33 by RiLeY1985
Wednesday, October 05, 2011 @ 07:15:09 PM

shooter there are 4 gas barges to destroy. 2 when the level starts then you destroy 2 reavers. after the reavers a gas barge will appear on the right that you need to destroy quick before it is taking down by ai. then the last barge comes right up to you and is pretty easy 2 kill. if you look this up on youtube there is a good video of it

Thursday, October 06, 2011 @ 03:00:36 AM

ive done this 3 times now each multiplier has hit 10 but i still get 0 when i check my achievment badge??? how many times do you need to do this???

Comment #35 by O4OUR
Thursday, October 06, 2011 @ 12:37:15 PM

you need to be at 10x right as the chapter ends.. so if the queen hits you obviously your multiplier goes down. (assuming ur doin 2|7)

Comment #36 by BatThanatos
Thursday, October 06, 2011 @ 11:09:14 PM

x10 multiplier for 10 chapters I believe

Comment #37 by comm4nd3r ch31f
Friday, October 07, 2011 @ 04:22:42 AM

thanks guys ... gave up with 2/7 and tried 3/1 instead which worked for me and more enjoyable :-)) took longer but that 2/7 level was driving me nuts !!! finally got the achievment last nite :-))

Comment #38 by anton_bp
Sunday, October 09, 2011 @ 10:33:20 AM

Question: Can i do it one time then press start and "restart from last checkpoint", and repeat 10 times, or do i have to finish and restart?

Comment #39 by RayzoRay
Monday, October 10, 2011 @ 11:34:50 PM

#38 you have to wait til it kicks you to score screen, then next chapter will begin all you have to do then is hit START then RESTART CHAPTER. Took me like 15x's to get it just right and now i can hit it every-time.

Comment #43 by SAlNT PATRlCK
Friday, October 14, 2011 @ 08:08:53 AM

Good call #37. 3/1 takes a bit longer but really is more enjoyable. Just wasting one Boomer after another is just so much fun.

Comment #45 by UmiKit
Sunday, October 16, 2011 @ 01:15:32 PM

I did the act 2 chapter 7 and it takes some fast skill or luck cause I don't get it all the time. Sometimes come out with half a multiplier missing. Doing that and continuing on to the next act chapter 1 is also a good spot. A little time consuming, yet even on casual you can get 10x halfway through protecting the area.

Comment #46 by KyoKat
Sunday, October 16, 2011 @ 09:12:16 PM

if anyone still needs help with this, ive pretty much got it down
ive done it 20 times, got the achievement for me and for my hubby
ill be able to get it for anyone who needs it if you just ask
i rarely mess up on doing it, maybe 2 times out of 12
i do it on the gas barge level, the only problem being the 3rd gas barge

my gamertag is MasterKyoKat
if you need help just let me know. you can even check, i have it
and Iraqiwolf1175 has it because of me, go ahead and check

Comment #47 by fijigus
Tuesday, October 18, 2011 @ 01:44:01 AM

this was pretty hard considering there is a quick level to do it on, and a video showing you exactly what to do. On the plus side I am almost to my silver number 1 medal and achievement because of all the times I got 9 multiplier and then finished the level and restarted. I also got up to level 25 and half way to survivalist silver medal. So frustrating, but at least the fails still pay off.

Comment #48 by Celtics201209

got 10x multiplier and stupid reaver shoots me at end and it goes down to 9

Comment #49 by evildeceptacon
Thursday, October 20, 2011 @ 10:33:07 PM

2-7 is quicker but hit everything. 3-1 takes longer but mad things to kill plus theres a turrent that tears shit up.

Comment #50 by xuxa29
Thursday, October 20, 2011 @ 11:50:25 PM

I've done it the multiplyer hit 10 but it does not unlock, oh it's 10 times, this is pointless

Comment #51 by dixie123
Sunday, October 30, 2011 @ 12:49:50 PM

you dont actually need to maintain 10x for the whole chapter youe can drop of 10x to 9 and finish on 10x and it will still count towards the force multiplier medal.

Comment #52 by lotsanoisy69
Thursday, November 03, 2011 @ 06:33:12 PM

I actually just got it once on the checkout mart when you play as Cole and Baird on casual mode with a full play through, but it takes way too long that way so I stuck with 2-7 and it's so much quicker!

Comment #53 by Darth Craigus
Saturday, November 19, 2011 @ 05:36:31 PM

I was struggling with 2-7, it was always that 3rd barge scuppering my chances and I always finished with 9.75 instead of 10. I switched to 3-1 and it's far easier for me. It's longer, but that will also help towards racking up your Arcade points too. If you rush to the front straight away and get on the right-most turret gun you can really rack up the kills. I've been on 10x multiplier before the first gate is even breached. It's a synch to keep it at 10 and because there are so many enemies even if you do get hit and lose the max multiplier you just kill another 1 or 2 and it's back up to 10.

tl;dr - I'd recommend 3-1 for anybody struggling to get the 3rd barge on 2-7.

Soooo hard when noobs continue taking my kills whilst i down 3 with 1 grenade any ideas.

Comment #55 by twgjt1
Saturday, December 10, 2011 @ 04:39:12 AM

The third barge was screwing me up at first as well. I wait for Dom to say "Great! Looks like the whole grub Air Force is after us!" As soon as he says that I begin to fire at the 3rd barge. I start by leading it slightly to the left and continue to lead it with each shot. It takes practice, but I think it's worth it since I'm using an idle second controller and working on the silver "number 1" medal as well. Throw on a few mutators on Normal difficuly and you can accumulate a lot of points towards the onyx King of COG medal (7,500,00 points in arcade). Hope this helps.

Comment #56 by HacSaw
Monday, January 30, 2012 @ 12:47:52 PM

Chapter 3-1 is by far the easiest and quickest. Play on normal with Super reload and infinite ammo and hold off the Maulers and Boomers. By not allowing them to breach the second gate the chapter comes to a quick end. It took me about 10 mins each time and it really hard to get hity just as long as you use cover.

Comment #57 by manleyx
Sunday, February 05, 2012 @ 03:58:03 AM

I can confirm chapter 3-1 is much better for this achievement! Less stressful and gets you 200-300k points very easily towards your king of cog medal, even using super active reload on Normal!

Act 3 Chapter 1 on Normal. Takes roughly 20 mins to complete but it's far less annoying them Act 2 Chapter 7.
