    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 Crawler Launcher and Crawler grenade kills.

    Set up the game as exact0 suggests, with the Player Team Deathmatch. Use the map Roadhouse.

    The launcher is in the upstairs bathroom. To get there, go up the broken stairs and take the door, follow the hall (there is a crawler grenade in the left hand corner) through the next door, there is the bathroom door on your right.

    There is also a portal that leads to the outside if you keep going straight and miss the bathroom door on the right.
    That portal leads directly into a crawler grenade stash as well.

    You can agree you and your partner will ONLY USE the crawlers and the crawler launcher, though that isn't really necessary since these guns are compatible with others in the game for a fun experience, unlike the wrench.

    If you are going for the crawler grenade achievement, be sure to hit the left trigger to make the crawler a mine, not a grenade, that way you can plant them places and make your enemy walk into them when coming through these many doors, the portal, etc.

    It will go quickly enough and be a lot of fun.

    This Achievement will be unlocked after you made 25 kills using the Crawler Launcher. This is the seventh 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.

    justG0TwickedSince I have no idea where to find the weapon mentioned in the achievement description, and you seem to have posted the same "solution" for ever MP achievement in this game, your solution is useless to me. You might want to mention where to find the weapon, so that it can be used to attain the 25 kills. Cut and paste solutions are typically garbage, and this is no exception.................
