    how i did it was make a new char and went to chapter 2 at life guard tower
    kept checking game lobby till i saw a game with three different chars joined it and drop out to main menu went to recently played list and joined again with the right char needed to unlock it... might take awhile to find a game with three different chars

    check game lobby at life guard tower and fast travel to light house and check there lobby seems to change with different games appearing at other locations
    can be done in any chapter but seems that most games are in the early chapters

    Solario32Glad the achievement pops right after joining a game, and not after you do a few quests.

    If you've got three friends with the game you can boost this easily, just rack all four of you into the same session with four different characters and you're done.

    If you want to try and complete this 'naturally', prowl the game lobby list when you're loaded up and try to find a session with three people playing three characters you aren't. Most games you find are going to be an army of Sam B. clones however--as the infamous rap star spent all his wealth on ensuring his legacy would never be lost.

    The object of this achievement is to get into a game with the 4 characters: Sam B, Logan, Xian Mei, and Purna.

    Normally it's pretty rare (in my experience anyway) of finding anyone who is playing as Xian Mei or Purna.

    If you cannot find anyone from random games, ask your friends to make a new character (preferably the character that's not currently in the group) and go through the prologue. When they finish you invite them in and get all 4 characters together.

    Then you should have your achievement.

    DragonCrusaderVgot this achievement randomly, join a game with 3 other player, i suggest playing as xian mei or purna before joining the game, because very few people would choose a girl as their main character, few chooses purna but not as few as xian mei, mainly because of purna is good at firearms. i was playing as xian mei and got this achievement on my 2nd quick match

    Gen Fire DragonI find it odd that you say so many choose Sam or Logan. Blunt weapons? Okay, fine but I rarely see many good blunt weapons. Throwing expert? Why would I want to throw my weapon away.

    My friend and I played the game through co-op and the only characters we considered were the edged weapons (Xian) and the firearms expert (Purna). Also the vast majority of the others we had join us were one of the women and while we got the occasional Sam we were in Act 3 before we saw our first Logan (who promptly decided to start throwing grenades at us and we had to boot him.)

    chanjamlukeI seem to see a lot of Sam B (I choose him) but not many Logan's and a few of the other two.
