    Start up beast with the following settings:
    Difficulty: Casual
    Map: Checkout (you want a small one)

    You can get this while going for:
    Gears of War 3Welcome to Beast ModeThe Welcome to Beast Mode achievement in Gears of War 3 worth 14 pointsSurvive all 12 waves of Beast mode (any difficulty, any map).

    Wild Ticker: This will be your hardest kill to get, and so it's best done on wave 1. I started off as the Savage Drone and killed everyone except the last guy. I proceed to let this guy take my health down almost to the end and then downed him (don't fully kill him) then go kill yourself on a turret or a spike fence. respawn as a Wild Ticker and just walk up to the guy and kill him. It'll take some practice but this is the easiest way to do this alone.

    *Also if you down a guy and die, then respawn as a wild ticker and then the guy dies (without you atacking it) it still counts for the wild tickers kill.* - Found by quinnpm

    Ticker. Just keep at it. The ticker is easy to go around a corner and kill a guy. Make sure you use your run (hold A) feature. If your having trouble use the same strategy as I describe for Wild Ticker.

    Wretch: make sure you utilize that the wretch can climb stuff (A) and leap through the barriers (RB). I've found that this is best on Wave 1 as well. You can use the same strategy as for the Wild Ticker, but I've found that this is doable with just normal play.

    A list of each type if you want to cross them off:
    Wild Ticker
    Savage Drone
    Giant Serapede
    Savage Corpser
    Savage Grenadier
    Armored Kantus
    Savage Boomer

    You can also keep track of the ones that you need in the Stats & Awards / Achievements / Wreaking Locust Vengence. But this has to be done from the main menu.

    *Note: some people are having a problem with the ticker and it not counting after playing on the same level. The solution people are having is just try on another map and the achievement will pop*

    Galarzaa90I can't do the wild ticker at all, I try killing everyone and then suiciding, but it takes an eternity to get kileld by the turrets so I run out of time before getting on the wild ticker

    MongooseeyyUsing a second controller makes wild ticker easy. Guest kills 4/5 enemies in wave 1, then downs the 5th. Switch to main controller and finish off the 5th enemy. Boom

    When trying to unlock higher trees, I found it easier to kill everybody but the last person, then let the round time out. That way you stay on the easier wave, and do accumulate the points to unlock the higher priced locusts.

    Edit: Can't be done on wave one, but will work after beating wave one. I got this achievement without ever getting past wave 3

    I obtained this with the help of just 1 other person. We started Beast Mode and progressed far enough into the waves to have some of the more powerful Locust available. I found it easiest to use the Drone in the beginning. Once the Berserker is available have your friend that is assisting play as the Berserker and destroy all enemies making sure to leave at least 1 one 'helpless C.O.G.' remaining. (The Berserker felt almost invincible; Typically shouldn't take more than 1 life to do so) At this time you are free to select the Locust of choice to get your kill with. Your friend meanwhile can go around the map destroying barriers/defensive objects thus providing you with extra time while you use however many attempts necessary to get your kill. I found this method very easy.

    Ninja ScrollBest guide for the achievement by far. Did as stated. invited one of my friends to a private beast mode match on casual. Did it on the smallest map from the beta. 1st couple waves were close with the time expiring, but we were able to unlock the other characters faster with just the two of us. This mode gets boring quick though. Hopefully with DLC they will have it where real players can be on both sides like L4D. That would be bad ass!

    T O lR lR E SHappy to hear it worked so well for you too. In regards to the hopeful wishes of DLC being released similar to that of L4D I agree completely....would be sweet.
