**Edit: 12/19/2012 Apparently the Xbox servers are still up, according to many it is just PS3 and PC servers that are down.

There are four campaigns you have to complete and be the highest earner on to get this achievement. It is a reportedly buggy achievement. To get this you must play in a ranked match with at least one other person. The types of levels you will play on the four different campaigns are:

Containment - You only have to capture one ghost for this level. Have the primary player capture the one ghost and stay alive until the time runs out. You can just continually catch ghosts until the time runs out but make sure you are aware of the scores so you remain in the lead.

Survival - You have to survive one wave. Primary player can kill the enemies on the first wave to get the higher score. When you see you completed the first wave and the primary player has the highest score you can die. Be careful if you decide to just die, last player standing gets a bonus.

Destruction - You only need to destroy one relic on this level. I recommend having the primary player destroy the one relic necessary and then just fend off the ghosts from the next relic until the time runs out. The enemies are usually pretty easy to defeat when you are only on the second relic.

Protection - All three PKE Towers need to be raised to 100%. A great way to do this is have the person getting the achievement score one ghost and then have the other person just hold onto the other ghost so it doesn’t attack the tower. If you keep the first “wave” of enemies alive the next wave doesn’t come making it much easier to raise the tower. I would also use the second person to distract larger enemies from the PKE towers while the primary player defends while standing in the circle.

Thief - You need to stay alive and keep at least one relic safe until time runs out. You can go down but only one person can be down at a time without failing the round.

I hosted, beat the campaigns in order, played in a ranked match and did them in one session. There is a lot saying that this achievement is glitchy and buggy so I cannot promise this will work for you but it did work for me.
