    For this achievement what you have to is enter a Arena and finish and it should pop right? Well it didn't for me and looking at the in game achievement list it lists a different description then the actual achievement tile. What it lists there is "Play any arena in Co-op", the achievement isn't buggy just a confusion of achievement requirements.

    All you have to actually do is just enter an arena in co-op (two to four people total) and it will unlock properly among entering the arena. I hope this helps because the other two solutions just confused me then helped me. Thanks for reading the "rant" at the beginning!

    Edit: You could clear your cache and get the achievement in singleplayer how ever if you want the timestamp (if it matters) or have the GoTY edition (where its impossible to take away the update) you have to do whats listed above.

    Edit 2: It looks like the achievement description got fixed YAY

    Kit Fisto78Same happened to me. I played 30 waves solo, then joined a multiplayer. Before the MP wave started, the achievement popped.

    The description of this achievement is misleading. All you have to do is play an arena in co-op. Disregard the description given on the xbox achievement list.

    M1 462Thanks for rewording Pedegree's solution. I'm sure it provided a lot of clarification for those on the spectrum.

    All what you have to do is join with your Coop-Partner any Arena of the Bloodbath DLC and it will pops up. That´s all. Hard work.

    HolyHalfDeadThank you for explaining how to get this achievement, there is nothing more you needed to say. I'm sure it helped finallife6 almost a year later, so I have no idea why your solution or the other one which are both correct have got so many negative votes.

    PedegreeWell, this solution is hard to understand and the Achievement is very tricky. That would explain the Ratio of 1.70. ;)
