    Here is a proper guide if you find the first one is too vague. You must FINISH a PUBLIC match of each of the following modes:

    King of the Hill
    Team Deathmatch
    Capture the Leader

    The first 4 game modes can be located on the Versus, Standard mode. The last 2 modes can be located on Versus, Forces of Nature mode. You do NOT need the Forces of Nature DLC to play those 2 game modes.

    You do NOT need to play full matches of each of the modes, but you DO have to FINISH the game.

    NappydugoutHad an issue when selecting Guardian mode, it will say I need to purchase the content despite me owning it and being installed. 7 game types are listed under stats when I check and completing six of the seven popped it for me.

    This achievement is really easy and can be played online with others. You don't have to win the round, just play through a game, and can also be played in Casual mode.

    The easiest way is to head to Versus > Standard, then play one match of each of the six game modes from top to bottom. Don't worry about winning, just make sure you reach the screen where it tells you about your leveling up - this signals a complete match of the game mode. Then simply press Start, back out and go to the next game mode.

    Also, in the bottom-right corner of the screen, you will see a pop-up with the number of game modes needed to go as soon as you complete a needed match. This is handy way to keep track.

    Each match should only last around 5 minutes so you should easily be able to knock off this achievement in no time.

    This achievement cannot be obtained in Private mode, it must be in Standard or Casual modes

    FishStickszYou may also want to note that warzone and execution are 1 game mode so there's a chance to get either one game mode.

    B rizzle098just to let anyone who hasnt got the forces of nature pack know, that you don't have to play guardian - just the other 5 game modes in a public match.

    OnzaWould be nice if you mentioned "Forces of Nature" mode, since two required modes are on this menu, not Versus > Standard menu.

    I am going to put this simply because the solution that is currently posted didn't help me in the slightest. Like the achievement says there are 6 game modes to win, even though when you look at the in-game achievement it has 7 game modes (ignore guardian, that will pop when you do another game mode, that of which I can't remember).
    The 6 modes you need to play are: warzone, execution, wingman, king of the hill, capture the leader and team deathmatch.
    4 of these modes (Team deathmatch, warzone, execution and king of the hill) can be played by using the STANDARD lobby. In order to play Wingman and Capture the Leader you must access the FORCES OF NATURE lobby. It doesn't matter if you have the DLC or not, if you click on these modes without the DLC just keep pressing a to bypass the captions coming up.
    You do not have to win these matches, nor do you have to play the entire thing. Just make sure that the in-game achievement down the bottom of the screen updates before quitting the lobby. Happy gaming!
