There's a bit of a catch to this achievement, you need to be playing the campaign online with friends but you need to be on a local server due to the dedicated servers being buggy and even if you fulfill the achievements requirements it simply will not unlock.

Now the trick to it is for you to force yourself as the local host, it's a very simple trick but for anyone out there who doesn't already know how to do this I'll do my best to explain!

All you have to do is set up the lobby as you normally would, invite friends etc, when you're ready to start up, press "A" to start and then just keep pressing it, it'll start the load up sequence and cancel it over and over, within a minute the menu will lock but the game will continue loading, this means you've successfully managed to pull it off, if you cant seem to get it to work try pressing "A" faster, it does work, I promise.

A big fat warning though, while there are no serious consequences to this, i.e. you wont get banned because it's not tampering with gameplay, it doesn't breach any rules! It does sometimes crash your Xbox, if that does happen just turn it off and on again, boot up and restart the process.

Now for the achievement what you have to do is have at least 3 human players (counting yourself), reach the finale or just boot up and start from it, clear out the main area and have a player go to each generator and wait, once everyone is in position and ready, have one person do a countdown and all press "X" at the right time, once the 3 generators are up and running the achievement will unlock.
