    This is a hard achievement to earn, but can be done if you have some patience. The trick is to move both boxes at the same time, while moving ahead slowly. Once you drop the box, you have a few seconds to kill what you need to and pick it back up before it respawns at the beginning. It's a long slow process, and you need some serious communication with your buddy, and after a few times practicing, you'll get it.

    I was having such a hard time with this achievement and couldn't get no where with it as enemies just kept on respawning as we progressed a little further on through the map and so on until we ultimatley died halfway through.

    This kept on happening so we then just decided to try a guns blazing approach and leave the boxes. Which seemed like the worst Idea ever but it actually worked out pretty well.

    We cleared out all of the enemies very easily throughout the map and when we reached a building just before the drop off point two or three enemies kept on spawning at the drop off point and ended up killing my teammate which led him to be spawned back with the boxes, but this turned out to be a good thing as he then picked up one box and started progressing through the map and only came across two or three respawned enemies throughout the whole map. When he reached the point I was at which was still behind the building before the drop off point I then got myself killed and picked up the other box at the start and again progressed through the map and again only running into two or three respawned enemies. When I reached him he finished off the remaining enemies that were respawning and we then made a dash for the drop off point. I was so surprised that It actually worked so I thought I would put it up on the solutions board.

    Hope this helps anyone going for the achievement

    BladeRunnerN7Yeah we did try that and did ok but we found that too many enemies kept on respawning which meant that the person killing all the enemies eventually kept on dying and used up all of the lives. It is still a good way though as the more times you do it the more you will learn to know where to go with the boxes and can predict where the enemies will come from. It will just take a lot longer to complete.

    Dr MartyYou should add that you HAVE to crouch at all times... it decreases spray and increases your accuracy at a distance.

    For Errand Boy, you want to have one player acting as courier (juggling both boxes) and one acting as escort. Crouching and taking single shots with the assault rifle gives the best results; it makes you small target while granting increased accuracy. Headshots are instant kills. The escort should move up and focus on clearing out the enemies ahead. The courier should focus on moving the boxes about 10 seconds ahead of each other, leaving a 10-15 second window should things get complicated. The courier should only try to fight when they are under fire and cannot take cover.

    1) Be careful going around corners. Try to only expose yourself to one enemy at a time.
    2) Fight enemies from as far away as possible. Even if they look out of range, you can still get a headshot with the assault rifle at any range.
    3) Keep moving. If you linger, the game will continually spawn enemies ahead and behind you, making life difficult.
    4) Focus on enemies with SMGs and rifles first. Shotguns do scratch damage at best at range.
    5) Watch your health. You can regenerate 1/4 of your health, and you'll be relying on that to stay alive. As soon as it starts beeping, try to hide until it refills.
    6) You have a shared pool of lives. Don't get killed recklessly.
    7) If one player loses their last life, restart. You won't get credit for the level if only one player makes it.
    8) Watch your fire. Friendly fire is on, and nothing sucks like accidentally blowing away a teammate.
    9) The escort will spend most of their time crouched. Only stand up when moving ahead and no enemies are present.
    10) The escort should be using their rifle exclusively. Make sure to pick up ammo from any fallen rifle-toting enemies.

    If the escort dies, the courier should focus on juggling the boxes while staying on one place. Getting involved in a fight means the boxes could reset or the courier could die. If the courier dies, the escort should take over juggling boxes until the courier gets back into position.

    If you play carefully enough, you can complete the level without anyone dying.

    HolyHalfDeadThis is how we did it - got it on our 3rd try, with 4 lives left. Watch out for grenades, it was the only thing that killed us.
