The other solutions here are really good.

HOWEVER...

This will make it MUCH easier to get...

When you stop one of the excavators from breaching, for example "biodome", and the same excavator gets called in again...

LET IT BREACH!

You'll still get the achievement as long as the same person does all the hacking. If you stop an excavator one time, it's OK to let it breach the second time.

That way, you'll increase your chances of getting the other two excavators.

GOOD LUCK!

P.S. Everyone in the lobby will get the achievement as long as the same person does all the hacking.

So four of us got this in round 10 after two of us in the group had been trying for about 10 hours overall. A few tips for a fast match as a group (although the last tip works for Solo):

1. Ensure you turn on the power in round 1. If you don't, restart.
(If you are playing Solo, it's possible to get the power on by round 2 or 3, depending on your opening attack on Earth, and any potential power ups you get early on such as 2x.)

2. If you don't get one Excavator moving by the beginning of round 3, restart.
(If you are playing Solo, you may need another 1-2 rounds, but if you don't have the power on by round 4, restart. You need 3750 points to open the 4 doors between your starting position on the Moon and the Power switch.)

3. BIG TIP: Don't kill the Zombie Astronaut! We discovered today killing the Zombie Astronaut resets the order in which the Excavators activate, meaning you may have the one of the 3 areas activate again and you may have to work until very late rounds (25+) to try and get the third unique one.

Excavators will activate on average every 4th to 6th round, but it's entirely RNG bound. In our winning game, we got the first Excavator in round 2, the second in round 4 (exceedingly good RNG), and the last in Round 10. We didn't kill the Zombie Astronaut - just kept our distance where possible (one of us got grabbed and warped away in one round, but it wasn’t detrimental to the overall achievement run.)

(https://callofduty.fandom.com/wiki/Astronaut_Zombie and https://callofduty.fandom.com/wiki/Excavator reference the caveat about killing the Zombie Astronaut.)
