Step 1: Playthrough on Casual
Step 2: Playthrough on Insane
Step 3: Multiplayer
For this next round, have the COG only kill 2 Locusts this time, allowing the Locust killer to also get his kills, and tie up the round. Once it is tied, the COG should have 23 kills, and the Locust should have 21. The game should also be 17-15 for the COG. Once the Locust now gets the next 2 rounds, (and another 6 kills) The game should look like this: Game tied at 17-17; Every COG has 30 kills, except for one (27), same with the Locust. Now, the Locust and the COG player will both get two kills, and instead of tying it up, will kill each other. Have one player pick up the frags, or another thing that can kill yourself and the enemy (Torque bow, Boomshot, Hammer of Dawn) and kill each other. There you go. 30 kills, 30 deaths, 30 more kills for whatever weapon achievement you were going for.
Step 4: DLC Multiplayer

|Completed tutorial level on any skill level||(17)|
Fire the game up and start a single player or co-op campaign on any difficulty. The game will walk you through this level. You'll escape from the prison and go into the helicopter to unlock this achievement.

|Complete Act 5 on Casual Difficulty||(1)|
|Complete all acts on Casual Difficulty||(3)|
Casual, as well as Hardcore, is available from the start. You can play this in co-op, single player, or a mixture of both, as long as you have credit for completing each individual chapter. The gameplay of Gears of War is very linear, and Casual is really easy, so you should have no problem.

Hardcore, as well as Casual, is available from the start. You can play this in co-op, single player, or a mixture of both, as long as you have credit for completing each individual chapter on Hardcore. Beating the game on Hardcore will unlock the Insane difficulty. The difficulty achievements stack. (Meaning, for example, getting "Completed Act 1 on Hardcore" will also unlock "Completed Act 1 on Casual" if you do not already have it.)

|Complete Act 5 on Insane Difficulty||(1)|
|Complete all acts on Insane Difficulty||(136)|
Insane is not available until you complete Hardcore. However, you can play Insane if you join a co-op match hosted by someone who has beaten Hardcore. The easiest way to get all the achievements besides the multiplayer ones is to join an Insane co-op game from the start. It'll take you maybe 6 hours to complete the game, and you'll get every non-multiplayer achievement except "Clusterluck", "Prison Breakout", and the three cog tag ones. (See "For the Fallen").
|Time to Remember||10|
|Recover one-third of the COG tags (on any difficulty)||(3)|
See "For the Fallen."
|Recover two-thirds of the COG tags (on any difficulty)||(2)|
See "For the Fallen."
|For the Fallen||30|
|Recover all of the COG tags (on any difficulty)||(9)|
COG tags are the future's equivalent of dogtags. They are hidden throughout the game and can be picked up in various chapters of every act. You will notice them by their illuminated blue glow. If you have picked up a COG tag in a certain area, and are playing through the game again, you will not be able to pick that COG tag up again. The number of COGs you have picked up can be seen in the pause menu.
|My Love for You Is Like a Truck||30|
|Defeat a Berserker on Hardcore Difficulty||(15)|
You will find the Berserker in 'China Town', the final chapter of Act 1. Lead her through the house by standing in the doorway you want her to go through, shooting her, then jumping out of the way right before she hits you. Repeat until you lead her outside, then use the Hammer of Dawn on her. Hit her with it twice to obtain the achievement.
There is also another berserker near the beginning of Chapter 2 of Act 5. Just lead her off the end of the train in the same fashion as described above.
|Defeat a Corpser on Hardcore Difficulty||(6)|
You will find the Corpser in 'Angry Titan', the final chapter of Act 3. To defeat it, stand near it. It will raise a leg to attempt to hit you. Once it does that, shoot it in the stomach. It will rear back, exposing its entire body. Hit it in the neck, and it will retreat. Do this three times in a row to make it go onto a platform. Then, pull out your Gnasher (shotgun) and hit the two clasps on either side. If you don't have a shotgun, you will need to use another gun or grenades, but the Gnasher is ideal.
|A Dish Best Served Cold||30|
|Defeat General RAAM on Hardcore Difficulty||(23)|
General RAAM will attack you in 'Pale Horse', the last chapter of the game. It is recommended you do this with a partner, as it's very tough otherwise.
This video was not done on Insane, although it says it was.
For co-op, your best method is:
|Zen and the Art of Reloading||10|
|Perform 25 perfect active reloads (on any difficulty)||(5)|
Mastering the perfect active reload is not a difficult task. You must press reload once to start the meter, and press it again once the needle hits the white area. Do this 25 times total in single-player, co-op, ranked multiplayer, or player multiplayer. Of course, this will be impossible if you have a full clip of ammo.
|Zen and the Art Part 2||20|
|Perform 5 perfect active reloads in a row (on any difficulty)||(7)|
As said in "Zen and the Art of Reloading", mastering this isn't all too difficult, but doing it perfectly 5 times in a row can be tricky. Stand still in a clear area and shoot one bullet off, then try to do an Active Reload. Once you hit it 5 times in a row, you'll get this achievement.
|Kill 3 enemies at once 10 different times (on any difficulty)||(22)|
Killing 3 enemies at one time will require a grenade, Boom Shot, Hammer of Dawn, or possibly a well-aimed sniper shot. The easiest way to do this is to do the following:
Please note that you cannot reload the checkpoint as the video shows. If you do, the kills will not count. Instead, run outside and let the other locust kill you.
|A Series of Tubes||20|
|Host and complete 50 ranked matches||(102)|
Pretty self-explanatory. Host a ranked match, wait for enough people to join, and start it up. You must finish the match though, if the entire opposing team quits early, you will not get credit. Your best bet is a one-round game on Gridlock with a minute time limit.
|Complete 1 co-op chapter as Dominic Santiago on any difficulty||(2)|
See "I Can't Quit You Dom."
|Complete 10 different co-op chapters as Dominic Santiago on any difficulty||(11)|
See "I Can't Quit You Dom."
|I Can't Quit You Dom||30|
|Complete all acts in co-op as Dominic Santiago on any difficulty||(83)|
In order to play as Dom in co-op you must join someone's game. If you host it you will play as Marcus. There is no way to see which ones you have done as Dom, so your best course of action would be to start from Chapter 1, Act 1 and play all the way through on Casual. It won't take more than 3-4 hours.
|Don't You Die On Me||10|
|Revive 100 teammates in ranked matches||(54)|
If a teammate goes down you will know by an indicator on the screen with a red arrow pointing in their general direction. If you can get there in time, stand next to the player and press X to revive them. Do this 100 times in ranked matches over your career.
|Fall Down Go Boom||20|
|Kill 100 enemies in ranked matches with the Boomshot||(51)|
Just as the description says, kill 100 enemies total in your career in ranked matches with the Boomshot to get the achievement. The Boomshot is available on: Clocktower, Gridlock, Mansion, Mausoleum, Old Bones, Process, Subway, Bullet Marsh, and Garden.
|Kill 100 enemies in ranked matches with a pistol||(26)|
Just as the description says, kill 100 enemies total in ranked matches with either the Snub Pistol or the Magnum to get the achievement. The Snub is a starting weapon, you will spawn with.
|Kill 100 enemies in ranked matches with the Torque Bow||(16)|
Just as the description says, kill 100 enemies total in ranked matches with the Torque Bow to get the achievement. The Torque Bow is available on: Canals, Rooftops, Mausoleum, Tyro Station, War Machine, Process, Bullet Marsh, and Subway.
|I Spy with My Little Eye||20|
|Kill 100 enemies in ranked matches with the Longshot||(36)|
Just as the description says, kill 100 enemies total in ranked matches with the Longshot to get the achievement. The Longshot is available on: Canals, Clocktower, Escalation, Gridlock, Fuel Depot, Mansion, War Machine, Mausoleum, Rooftops, Old Bones, Process, Bullet Marsh, Garden, and Subway.
|Don't Hurt 'Em||20|
|Kill 100 enemies in ranked matches with the Hammer of Dawn||(31)|
Just as the description says, kill 100 enemies total in ranked matches with the Hammer of Dawn to get the achievement. The Hammer is available on: Fuel Depot, Rooftops, Tyro Station, and Garden.
|It's a Massacre||10|
|Kill 100 enemies in ranked matches with the Chainsaw||(19)|
You start every match with a Lancer, which has a chainsaw bayonet. Hitting the melee button will rev the chainsaw. If you can get up to an enemy with a fully-revved chainsaw, you will saw him in half. Do not chainsaw downed enemies or they will count as an execution kill. Kill 100 enemies total in ranked matches with this method to get the achievement.
|Kill 100 enemies in ranked matches with the curb stomp||(23)|
To curb stomp an enemy, shoot them until they're downed but still alive, then walk up to them and press X. Kill 100 enemies total in ranked matches with this method to get the achievement.
|Kill 100 enemies in ranked matches with an execution||(18)|
To perform an execution, you must first down an enemy. Once that has been done, you either melee, shoot, or chainsaw the enemy. You do not have to shoot them in the head. Chainsaw kills on downed enemies do not go towards your chainsaw achievement. You must perform this 100 times over ranked matches for the achievement.
|Is It a Spider||30|
|Kill 100 enemies in ranked matches with grenade tag||(20)|
Grenade tags happen when you melee an enemy with grenades equipped. You spawn with a smoke grenade, but you need a frag grenade for this. Frags can be picked up on any map. Kill 100 enemies total in ranked matches with this technique to get the achievement.
|The Money Shot||20|
|Kill 100 enemies in ranked matches with a headshot||(20)|
Headshots are when the head of the enemy blows up and the rest of the body remains intact. You can do this with any weapon that isn't automatic or explosive, that is, the Snub Pistol, Magnum, Longshot, or Gnasher (shotgun). Blow the head off a foe that isn't already downed 100 times total in ranked matches for this achievement.
|Always Remember Your First||10|
|Finish playing a versus ranked match||(2)|
Join or host a ranked match and finish it. You must play to a decisive victory, if the entire opposing team quits, it won't count.
|Don't Hate the Player||10|
|Finish with the highest points in a ranked match||(176)|
The easiest way to get this would be to get into a 1-round match and get the most kills. You should do it in 3-4 tries, less if you're a good player. Points are awarded for kills in all gametypes and caps in Annex.
|Mix It Up||20|
|Win a ranked match in every versus game type||(29)|
You must be on the winning team in each of the three original gametypes: Execution, Warzone, and Assassination. Annex does not count.
|Around the World||30|
|Win a ranked match on every versus map||(32)|
To get this achievement, you must be on the winning team in each of the original maps: Canals, Clocktower, Escalation, Fuel Depot, Gridlock, Tyro Station, War Machine, Mansion, Mausoleum, and Rooftops.
|Can't Touch Me||20|
|Win 10 ranked matches without losing a round||(27)|
This description is worded in a slightly confusing manner. What it means is that you must shut out the opposing team in 10 matches total (Example: Win a 5-round game 5-0). As draws are not scored, they do not matter. As long as you do not lose a round, it'll count. These do not have to be done in a row. The easiest way to get this is simply win 10 1-round games.
|Kill 10,000 people in versus ranked match total||(510)|
This is possibly the most time-consuming achievement in any popular game to date. Averaging a kill a round, this will take you around 400 hours of gameplay to complete, not counting time spent waiting for matches to get started. What's more is, players have reported getting upwards of 13,000 kills and not having it unlock. It is possible that 'stealing' a kill (killing a downed player that you did not down) will not count towards this, or that the match must be at least 3v3 at the time of the kill, but no one knows for sure. What is known is that a lot of time and patience, and a little skill, is needed for the achievement.
|DLC: 'Hidden Fronts' Multiplayer Map Pack 2|
|Cost: Free Achievements: 5 Points: 150|
|You Down With E.P.I.C?||30|
|Win a multiplayer match of 3+ rounds in any game type on 6 different downloadable maps||(14)|
This is basically the expansion's version of "Around the World". You must be on the winning team on each of the 6 new maps: Old Bones, Raven Down, Subway, Garden, Bullet Marsh, and Process. Remember, they must be 3 or more rounds to count.
|Win 20 multiplayer matches of 3+ rounds in any game type on the Garden multiplayer map||(4)|
See "All That Juice."
|Mind the Gap||30|
|Win 20 multiplayer matches of 3+ rounds in any game type on the Subway multiplayer map||(2)|
See "All That Juice."
|Win 20 multiplayer matches of 3+ rounds in any game type on the Bullet Marsh multiplayer map||(5)|
See "All That Juice."
|All That Juice||30|
|Win 20 multiplayer matches of 3+ rounds in any game type on the Process multiplayer map||(9)|
Simply play any game with 3 or more rounds, ranked or unranked, in any gametype on this map. Win 20 times and Achievement Unlocked.
|DLC: Game Title Update|
|Cost: Free Achievements: 3 Points: 100|
|THIS! IS! ANNEX!||40|
|Complete 100 multiplayer matches of 3+ rounds in Annex and capture 3 objectives in each match||(61)|
Annex is basically a rendition of King of the Hill. A large circle spawns at random on the map, but always around a spot where you can pick up a map weapon (Torque Bow, Longshot, etc.) The first team to get there and stay there uncontested (without the enemy team entering) for a few seconds will 'cap' the circle.
|Win 20 rounds of multiplayer matches in Annex by fewer than 5 points||(13)|
All Annex games have a point limit, from 120 to 420 in increments of 60. To get this achievement, you must win 20 rounds of Annex by 4 points or less. For example, win with a score of 120-116. 120-115 will not count. You do not have to do these matches in a row or in one match, 20 times over the course of your career will get you the achievement.
|Win 20 rounds of multiplayer matches in Annex by shutting out the opposing team||(4)|
For this achievement, you must win 20 rounds of Annex by a complete shutout. For example, win 120-0. This would obviously be best done in a game with 120-point rounds, as all you have to do is cap and hold two straight objectives. Depending on how good your team is, you could win by a shut out more often than you don't.
