So the aim of the game is to survive 16 rounds of Extraction.

The main points:

*You cannot do this game in a private lobby. It HAS to be public.
*You MUST be in the pregame lobby to get the achievement.
*THE HOST MUST STAY IN THE GAME. You will not get the achievement if he/she lags out or quits.

To get around the lobby problem:

2 people sit in the Versus lobby. 2 people search for Extraction games so: Versus -> Quick Play -> Extraction.

Once one person is in a lobby by themselves, they must get the game invite out ASAP. You have just under 40 seconds to send the invites out & get yourselves in the lobby.

If one person doesn't join in time, you must start the process again. When you're all in the lobby in the pregame countdown it should say 4/4 or 0/4 the last /number must be a /4! Because this shows how many are in the game.

OK, so it's pretty straight forward once you're in the game session. Sit tight through the rounds. You'll need some patience, it could take up to 4 hours. (It ran this way with my sessions: 4 hours, 3.5 hours 2.5 hours - although at that point we knew exactly what to expect!)

There is a particular level - Crossroads - where you fight 2 Rocket Launcher Heavies (LRH) & then 2 Grenade Launcher Heavies (GLH). (It's usually the last level you do but sometimes they get jumbled up)

When the 2 RLH appear, run back to where you spawn/started the game (near the stairs leading down to nowhere) They will both go around in circles at the top and shouldn't pose a problem at all if 2 people hide toward the back of the stairs (leading to nowhere) and 2 people sit up front behind a very small wall/concrete roadblock. 1 RLH will walk around in a circle from the left and another will walk around behind the lorry/truck (which is right ahead of you when you're behind the concrete road block) on the right throw grenades at this guy for good measure. Keep an eye out for the Commanders that come from the right.

Once you've downed the last RLH, the 2 GLH will appear with the rest of the Commanders and Elites (10 in total. 2 GLH & 8 Commanders & Elites). The Commanders and Elites will be spawning right behind you so run forwards back up to the top of the stairs and finish off the rest of the Elites & Commanders before you tackle the GLH. Once you've only got the last 2 GLH left, run back to the spawn point again and it's the same grind as it was with the RLH except this time you have to avoid grenades.

***When you're tackling the last 10 and if you're driven back toward your spawn point area, please keep in mind you'll have Commanders and Elites spawning behind you, to the right of you and to the left of you***

I hope this makes sense. I write this guide from experience - it took 3 sessions for me and 2 of the guys I boosted with and even more for one of them.

Special kudos & mentions to Darken81 for solving the problem of that pesky map.

It sounds easy when you read it but don't be fooled it; IS fustrating but with some buddies and a good sense of humour, you'll get that thing to 'pop' in no time. Good luck!
