    You must have the most points in a ranked match. Remember everything counts: revives, downs, damage, and kills.

    Also try and get into 1 round games, this makes it so that even if you lose, you wont have wasted as much time as playing a long game.

    Remember you can take your teammates "kills", most people loathe this, but this will net you some extra points to help you hit the top spot.

    I believe this cannot be done in the Annex gametype. Must be done in Warzone, Execution, or Assassination.

    Just pick your preferred game type and play, you will eventually get it.

    Also very easily boosted with a group of people.

    NOTE: This is not the best/fastest method if you are only trying to get this achievement, If you are trying to get this on your own then see Crimson Drifter's solution.

    However this solution is saying that you can get this while going for other achievements in one session.

    Edit: Cleaned up solution with "fancy" formatting that I didn't really know how to use when I originally posted this solution

    This is a good way to get multiple achievements in one session.
    This method will get 6-8 people the following achievements:

    "Around the World"(ATW)
    Gears of WarAround the WorldThe Around the World achievement in Gears of War worth 98 pointsWin a ranked match on every versus map

    Don't Hate the Player"(DHTP)
    Gears of WarDon't Hate the PlayerThe Don't Hate the Player achievement in Gears of War worth 25 pointsFinish with the highest points in a ranked match

    "Mix it Up"(MIU)
    Gears of WarMix It UpThe Mix It Up achievement in Gears of War worth 57 pointsWin a ranked match in every versus game type

    "Can't Touch Me"(CTM)
    Gears of WarCan't Touch MeThe Can't Touch Me achievement in Gears of War worth 63 pointsWin 10 ranked matches without losing a round


    way back when I got these achievements this is how the leader of the session had us go and I'm surprised this wasn't out here before so here is what I think is the best way to knock out multiple achievements in as short of time as possible.

    (IMPORTANT!!! have the same people on the same teams though out the session i.e. if you were on COG for the first match stay on COG for the whole time and vise versa. This way everyone on COG will get "CTM" at the same time they get "ATW" then start over and let the Locust team do the same thing)
    (Also note that if anyone needs "DHTP" that you can easily get this if you are on the team that is supposed to win, make sure to get all the kills for one match, then trade off next match until everyone has "DHTP")

    1st run-though: "COG" run-though
    Have someone start hosting 1 round games. I will go in alphabetical order of maps and game types but you can do them in any order as long as you catch them all. First start an Assassination match on Canals, meet in the middle and have 1 member of the COG team get all the kills to win the match (this person will get "DHTP"). Start the next match as Execution on Clocktower and have the COG team win again (switch who is killing if everyone needs "DHTP"). Start the Third match as a Warzone match on Escalation. (Everyone on COG team should get "MIU" at this point). Continue with whatever game type you want (Assassination might be slightly quicker) for the matches on the remaining maps (Fuel Depot, Gridlock, Mansion, Mausoleum, Rooftops, Tyro Station, War Machine) at the end of the War Machine match everyone on Cog should get "ATW" and "CTM"

    2nd run-though: "Locust" run-though
    (make sure you keep the same teams)
    This should go exactly the same as the COG run-though but for the Locust team.

    Summary:
    everyone can get "Around the World"(ATW), Don't Hate the Player"(DHTP), "Mix it Up"(MIU), and "Can't Touch Me"(CTM) in (20) 1 round matches.

    The full list of Maps and game types (if you want to make a checklist):

    Maps:
    Canals
    Clocktower
    Escalation
    Fuel Depot
    Gridlock
    Mansion
    Mausoleum
    Rooftops
    Tyro Station
    War Machine

    Game Types:
    Assassination
    Execution
    Warzone

    MuddyAmoebaWould Assassination matches be quicker for the last 7 matches, because once you kill the leader match ends?

    NickHawkeyeProbably, you can work out what everyone wants to do. although a small number there are more kills to be had in Warzone but I'll add a note to the solution.

    Just wanted to point out a detail the others left out. You do not need to be on the winning team for this achievement, as long as you're the one with the highest score in the game.

    When I unlocked this achievement, my entire team quit the game, and all but two people on the other team quit. Needless to say, they won the match, but I was able to take out [at least] one of them per round, which gave me the highest point total for the game.
Do you have a question about this achievement? Please post it in the Gears of War Forum
