    Simply put, kill 5 Psychopaths in Co-Op

    You can also do this in Sandbox Mode from what I hear.

    Being fast is key here as this achievement can be glitched in various ways.

    1. If your Co-Op partner ends up leaving or getting disconnected during a Psychopath fight, they will not get credit toward the achievement.

    2. If you don't do it in the same run (not shutting the game off) you will go back to 0 killed, only the host will get the achievement.

    My partner and I killed Randy and he got the achievement but not me since I got disconnected. I didn't get the achievement until later when I killed the snipers.

    TheBlackDragonXI just got this achievement and so did my partner (in the same game), so the host is not the only one to get the achievement.

    Ultra SevenI'm pretty sure when the snipers appear outside... There are four. Each counts as a psychopath kill. Just run along looking for each rooftop ladder. Don't bother shooting back at them from the ground. After that, wait awhile and I think right before the sun goes down, the chainsaw wedding chappel guy appears next... For number five.

    Ultra SevenI am meaning this done in sandbox mode... Further along as you are doing the challenges, you will see these things occur naturally. This is not a quickie achievement but can be done while also tackling challenges which takes a long time.

    Sir LumboJust a bit of extra info:

    - CAN be done in Sandbox
    - You do NOT need to be the host
    - Must be done in one sitting
    - Survivors do NOT count
    - You cannot replay the Twin Terror mission to kill the twins in the Shoal club

    DNGRDOOM64Sir Lumbo is 100% right, I was hosting my game and waited till I had the Hunters with snipers and the mission WWJWD? active. I invited my friend and got all 5 kills that way because each individual sniper counts as 1 psychopath.

    TVthePunisherI popped it at 6 psychopaths (Ted, Chuck, Randell, Slappy, Antoine and then finally on Carl) while my partner popped it on the second sniper. So it took 6 for me, 8 for him.

    Not to ruin everyone's parade on here who has said has to be done in 1 sitting, but that is completely false, I got it a few days ago with my friend and we both killed 5 Psychos (and only 5) with 3 different Sandbox playthroughs
    so (1, 3 and 2) and it unlocked for us both.
