I decided to write my guide out for the 3rd arena "DyDekuso's Chamber", but you should note that if the lag hasn't been fixed yet by Trion, then you're going to have a bad time.

*The method is made to help you get as many kills as possible by spawn killing the mobs and keeping up the multiplier, and boosting points earned by using abilities and bio grenades.*

Before you start:
- You NEED a team of 4, preferably people you know in game and get along with.
- They should have mics, there's going to be a lot of communicating.
- Have a couple of hours the spare, it's going to take awhile to get this achievement.

Your load out should look something like this:
- Protection Spikes and power Stims equipped, protection spikes so you don't go down and power stims so you can have the extra points for a power kill.
- Overcharge power, the instant reload is going to be the most important thing you have*.
- One with electrical resistance is nice but mainly go for... high capacity, low recharge time. There is going to be a lot of enemies so maybe have high capacity over recharge time.
- Any perks that reduce damage to you and recharges your ego ability.
- I find Shotguns and SMGs are best for this solution, shotguns for the mobs and SMG for Dekuso. You should also assign who wants to have a proliferator/bonfire equipped as secondary, they'll have the role of keeping Dekuso on fire or spawning a lot of bugs.
- Bio grenades help too. If you throw one down at their spawn point, they'll land into it and you'll gain some combo points.

*If someone has a zagger with instant reload and infinite ability, he should use blur and kill as many as he can, chances are he'll be your main points earner. I recommend that he is your 'centre guy'.

Now onto the method:
- Firstly, the arena can be spilt into 2 main parts, the time when you can damage Dy'Dekuso and 3 Survive rounds. The survive rounds are timed so you need to kill as many enemies within the round to get as many points as possible. The Dy'Dekuso round isn't timed but rather on how much damage you do to him, he goes into his shield and starts a survive wave when you've done 'X' amount of damage to him.

- The arena has 6 main mob spawn points/areas, not including the 1 in the centre for the Tanker spawn.

- 3 players will stick to the sides, with their backs towards the centre, in between 2 spawn points each. The spawn points are at each of the doors on the walls (the ones that have the graphical glitch making them appear orange) and below them. The enemies will jump down from there and land in the 2 spots that you'll need to keep your eyes on, always.
- 1 player will stay in the centre and watch out for the tanker spawn, and help the other 3 players if any get swarmed or downed. He will also be required the keep everyone in line and warn them when Dekuso is moving around. He should be warning others to keep to the plan and reminding them when to move on Dekuso and leaving 2 enemies alive at the end of the 3rd survive wave.
- The 3 players mainly spawn killing will need to kill the mobs asap; using a shotgun helps a lot since you can kill them instantly, which stops you from being swarmed.
- Kill all the enemies during the survive waves before damaging Dekuso, exception being the 3rd Survive wave where you NEED to keep 2 enemies alive to have a 3x multiplier when you kill Dekuso. I recommend 2 Rioters since they need to be close to attack and they shoot slowly since they need to reload between shots.
- The designated centre guy should be the only one damaging Dekuso after the 3rd survive wave. He needs to get Dekuso's HP as low as possible without killing him, and when he thinks he's done it, he will tell everyone to kill the remaining 2 enemies and then attack Dekuso.

Quick Runthrough
- Start - Run into your designated spots and start shooting Dekuso. Move around to avoid his attacks.
- First Survive Wave - Be in your spots and kill all the enemies. Make sure to kill all before attacking Dekuso. Hopefully there will be a tanker during the round, when/if he shows kill him with a x3 multiplier.
- Dekuso Round 2 - Same as usual, attack until he goes into his bubble and starts the 2nd survive wave.
- Second Survive Wave - Same as First Wave.
- Dekuso Round 3 - Same as 1st and 2nd round.
- Third and final Survive wave - Same as before but keep 2 Rioters alive. I suggest each of the 3 spawn killers leave 1 and the centre guy kill 1 of them.
- Final Dekuso Round - Designated guy should widdle Dekuso's health until he is nearly dead, whilst the other 3 distract the 2 remaining mobs. When Dekuso is ready, Leader will announce the death of the rioters and everyone should then immediately attack Dekuso.
- Reward Screen - Drink to forget previous failed attempts. Celebrate win.

- I found that the lag can clear after about 10-15 consecutive games without leaving, I think it clears as less people are in the server and doing arenas.
