    exact0's all-purpose description above is great - set up your game with the parameters he lists at the top of his solution to get the maximum opportunities for multiple achievements out of Prey multiplayer.

    Yet, here are a few ideas for more fun and efficient ways to get this particular achievement for the 25 wrench kills.

    Set up the game as exact0 suggests, with the Player Team Deathmatch. Use the map Savage Walk. There is a room in the middle with two wall walks and the leecher charger on the wall. Agree to meet up in there after you respawn.

    Agree you and your partner will ONLY USE the wrenches until one of you gets the 25 kills. Wrench fights work best and are the most fun in a confined space, when both players are armed with wrenches. And actually play the game - no fun in standing there and killing someone 25 times and then letting them clock you with a wrench 25 times. It will go quickly enough and be a lot of fun.

    For added fun, set the frag limit to 25 - so the first one to get the achievement wins. Setting it to 100 works, too, so you can continue on to another weapon after you get the 25 kills with the wrench.

    In that case, I suggest you start on the sniper kill achievement as your friend finishes coming after you with the wrench to get his 25. That way he has a sporting chance to get the kills he needs. Wrench wielders stand little chance against the automatic weapons.

    This Achievement will be unlocked after you made 25 kills using the Wrench. This is the first weapon from your equipment.

    OK, on-line is dead / non-existent so boosting is probably the only way to get the on-line achievements. First, just know that all Team DM kills also count towards your DM kills. So when you are working on your weapons achievements, just make sure you are in a Team DM. Here is the fastest way to get all the on-line achievements:

    1. Set up a Party so you can chat while boosting
    2. Choose "Xbox Live"
    3. Choose "Player Match"
    4. Choose "Create Match"
    5. Game Type - Team DM
    6. Map - Any map but Roadhouse is easy
    7. Frag Limit - Set to the max of 100
    8. Time Limit - None
    9. Max Players - 2
    10. Private - 1

    This should give you and your boosting partner unlimited time to get the 25 kills with each weapon. It will take you about 2~3 rounds. I used the Roadhouse and the person getting the kills (aka "killer") sits in 1 spot (at the bar or in the basement). The other person runs to the killer, dies, hits the right-trigger to respawn quick(er), and then runs back to the "killer". While the "killer" is sitting and waiting, they can move around and gather ammo / weapons. You can trade off after each weapon achievement or just have 1 person do the full 100 kills (4 achievements). Just keep track of what weapon you use and when the achievement pops to switch to a different weapon. Use the RB/LB to cycle through the weapons.

    After boosting for the weapon achievements in Team DM you should have 225 kills (25 x 9 weapons). You can go another round and get your last 25 kills in Team DM (250 total kills) here or come back later.

    Next, host a Ranked Deathmatch. This time, set the frag limit to 5 (lowest). Have the other person search for your match and then go. Rinse and repeat 9 more times and this will get you your 10 Ranked matches achievement.

    exact0@theKilling 757: Well, this is a cumulative / co-operative information site. Just add what's missing or clarify what's confusing. I think what I wrote does explain how to get the achievement. If you didn't think it had enough details or description, you should have posted that information... but I didn't see anything constructive or useful that you posted so you didn't help anyone. Maybe you just haven't had time. Instead, others will be wasting their time reading your honest but negative reply.... and my pointless rebuttal.

    Yes, it is the same for each gun so you don't need to know what it looks like. Just use one gun until you get the achievement, then switch to another one…. and so on.

    dEmntdaGGrsioNyou did not indicate weather or not a guest can be added ? is that what you mean by co-op?
    also would that require another disc on another xbox 360.
