    You must complete all 5 acts (all 31 chapters) in 4 player coop. It does not need to be all at the same time or with the same people. It does not need to be the same difficulty. It can be campaign, arcade, or a mix of the two. It does not need to be in order.

    I had some people lag out during the game. We just paused the game, invited a new player into the game and continued the story without having to go to the main screen.

    I would recommend to do this in arcade. It counts the same as campaign progress, it contributes to online ranks and ribbons and most importantly, there are respawns: campaign makes you restart the checkpoint whenever someone dies. If you haven't gotten it already, unlocking this achievement will also unlock

    DubC8944’s solution is right on the money. I would just like to add one thing. This can be done with guests as well. I had gotten to about Act 3 Chapter 3 with some friends on release night. After that we found it hard to get all four of us online at the same time. My friend and I just signed in some guests and played split screen. Two on his gamertag and two on mine. Since it was just the two of us we played the rest of the campaign with only two characters. Just wanted to let you know you could use guests as well and they don’t even have to be active. Just as long as they are in the game it gives you credit.

    How to sign in your guest to XBOX Live: Make sure to have the second controller on then press “Y” on the second controller to login guest. After that you will have noticed that your guest is signed in but only for local. You need to press “Y” again (on the second controller) go down to the very bottom and select “Guest.” After that you will be returned to the main menu and your guest can be used on XBOX Live.

    xCRiMZoNxI'm happy to see this solution is still helping my fellow TA'ers almost four years later! Yea the guest option is kind of tricky. That's why I added how to sign the guest in on the solution. I had some trouble when I first tried back then if I remember correctly. Thanks for the comment!

    In addition to all of the above, it is important to know that there is no need to be present from the beginning of the chapter. The critical issue is to be present at the time each chapter finishes (be sure that there are 4 players in the team at that time).

    So, even if you join the game (say) 1-2 minutes before the chapter ends, it will still count. It will also count towards the "That's Just Crazy" achievement.

    P.S. If you join the game very close to the chapter end (I cannot put a time stamp on it but I would say - more or less - 30 seconds), this does not seem to count...
