    You need a second controller for this method.

    Just got this achievement after trying all of the above and none of them working. This method is for people who were in my situation (tried everything) or people who dont want to pointlessly grind when you can get this achievement quick (even though it is luck based).

    Even though it's luck based, you can improve your odds of getting the item by:
    # Playing in co-op
    # Having someone that is not you be the Level 1 in the game with you (e.g. a guest account.
    #Having pretty much every other item (then it will just be nuts or the carrier)


    I was Level 49 when i got this achievement, just for reference.

    So, the steps:


    Step 1: Play Game (menu option)
    Step 2:Profile you want the cheevo on should be player 1
    Step 3: Sign in any account that has never played before (or make one if you dont have any) as player 2.
    Step 4: Load up Adventure 2-DownTown RoadBlock-Normal
    Step 5: Complete level and all bonus levels (and kill enemy spawn blimp) to maximise chances of the item dropping.

    I got it on my first try, if you don't here's what you should do.

    Step 6:Back to main menu, create a brand new profile for player 2 (so it's level 1 again) , play the same level again, rinse and repeat.
    If Step 6 doesnt work, then try the survival level on Adventure 1.

    FAQ:Use your best equipment to beat this the quickest, wearing lower level items will not make the carrier spawn, that makes no sense from coding terms.

    Hope this helps, leave feedback if it helped you, or if it could be improved.

    MattiasAndersonI probably got lucky! But I got baby carrier on Trail of beers and level Foundry 2 the first time I played it. (I was level 28 when I started the level and ended the level at level 30).

    Single player!

    GREGO McGEEI've tried this a couple times at level 37 and I don't get any look. Just bags of scrap...

    You simply have to find, buy and equip the Baby Carrier and play through any level wearing it. The idea behind this achievement is that the Baby Carrier adds nothing to your stats and the backpacks are very useful items.

    Obtaining items is random so there's no quick or easy way to do this. You find items in the game world that unlock items in the shop (they're color-coded crates with icons on them letting you know what kind of item you just found). So just keep playing until you find and can afford this item:

    Baby Carrier (Level 4, 1,170 nuts)

    As you can see, this is basically a freebie achievement if you disregard the fact that finding the Baby Carrier is entirely based on luck. I didn't find it until I was level 28, but once I did, I obviously had far more money than needed and beating a level with it is not as much of a drawback as using the astronaut's gear.

    MugenKairo@ Lumina: Not true if that were the case I would have it as well. A random achievement, noting more.

    NIXXION44I got this in Metal Slag Trail, Factory. I was level 25 (new save file). once I unlocked the Factory, i did not continue on, I re-played that level about ten times. HINT: after opening the crates, about half way through the lvl., the crates that you need the E.V.A to get, go back up. Go in to what i call the "blue doors" to find 2 more crates,

    I just wanted To add, that if you dont care about losing everything you had achieved in the came (linke Lvl. 50 and your guns etc.) and only want this achievment, than you can delete your gamingprogress in the xBoxmenu/settings and than play from the beginning as a Lvl.1 and in the Mission 1-1 and 1-2.

    I think, its the fastes way to geht this achievement if you where Art a high lvl or tried the guieds above.

    That way, after trying the other ways above, which didnt work out for me, i only needed 1 try To play the first 2 missions after it worked.


    Hope, it helps. ^^
    And please leave feedback, i would like to know if it works for others too. Thx

    Bill 13Took me a few tries of hitting level 10 and clearing my save but it finally unlocked after a couple of hours of grinding. Thanks for the guide.

    Chilled EclipseThis was the only method that worked for me. I started a new character for the 3rd time and got the carrier on the last enemy in the first level 1-1. Anyone going for this achievement should use a USB and just start a new game, plugging in a second controller with a level 40+ is going to make the carrier's % of dropping significantly lower as well as playing through 1-1 as a high level.

    Item drops from enemies or from a crate but the item drop is random and the possibility that an item drops is random. To increase the chances of itemt dropping play with another person as opposed to solo.
    For this achievement you need to buy the Baby Carrier. The developers suggest playing 1-1 Happy Nut Road : Farm Town to get the item drops.
    If you're a level higher than 10 while playing 1-1 you'll find you'll never get loot drops. To fix this problem play either with a second controller signed in as a guest or a friend who is lower than a Level 10 through a custom match. Either way the second controller or friend should choose 1-1 and should start it instead of your main account.
    If you're playing with a second controller but have trouble controlling both controllers run ahead of the level to get the second controller killed. Once the second controller is killed you do not have to worry about camera issues or not being able to progress because the second controller is behind the level.
    While playing the level make sure to shoot the loot crates.
    Personally using the second controller method I was able to get the item even though my character was around Level 45.
    If you do not have enough nuts to purchase the items then replay a Normal or Hard roadblock level solo. Personally I replayed the first Downtown Roadblock in Normal.

    Got mine today, I'm level 50
    Signed in guest account so that was level 1, I made sure I didn't kill anything until the guest was down (when you are down you don't earn XP therefore keeping the guest at level 1 all the time)
    I played through level 1-1, 1-2 and I picked it up on level 1-3! :)

    Previous to this I had run through adventure 1 for a good few hours and tried a number of tactics from here and x360a.
    It is a random spawn, but if you still haven't got it this method is worth a shot

    Good luck to you all

    After trying pretty much all other solutions to no avail for about 10+ hours. I decided to play the game normally on a new save file. The hellish item finally spawned on oil fields, which is stage 5 (area 2). I always reset in accordance to other guides, but I never seemed to get anywhere with a new or level 50 character.

    So, if you’re like me and are tired of getting nowhere for what seems like forever, play the game as if you’re playing for the first time. I came up with the idea after seeing various comments stating they got it on a random level.

    I wish you the best of luck, literally.

    If you're really not getting this and just want it done like I did, here's what I recommend.

    Start farming out the first two levels in Happy Nut Road (start with 1, then switch to 2 when it starts getting stingy) until you have no drops left in the "1 to 10" item range, then going to Dirtfield Drive and farming Downtown Roadblock. A successful run of that will yield more than 800 kills, and at least for me, the Baby Carrier. You may be able to just farm that level outright but it can be a bit difficult. Here's my set-up for it, just incase you're struggling:

    Fast Firing Woodpecker / Atlantean Deep Freeze / Beer Hat / "Howdy, Weasel" Pack / Emperor's New Pants

    It's just what worked for me. I tried all the other solutions so many times over and never got it on main accounts, or even second accounts. Doing it like this though, I got it on my first run of Downtown Roadblock after doing the aforementioned farming. And I only recommend doing that just because you can still theoretically get the drop on those two levels.

    3 friends and I tried wolfzkrieger's method. We tried happy nut road about 18 times and we never got the baby carrier. However, by myself I found it on level 6. The rest of my friends got it on level 4 and 5. On the 1st run through! Moral of this story is... If you don't get it on happy nut road, keep playing until level 6. You're sure to get it by then. Good luck!

    I tried every other solution on ta and none of the of solution work for me.

    step 1-play on hardcore and insane and get a lot of money because you have to buy almost everything in the store under shirt any undiscovered items or lock item don't worry about it.

    step 2-be ready to play 2 to 4 hours a day to get the baby carrier to drop it took me about 4 days of grinding to finally get it to drop.

    step 3-
    play on dirtfield drive
    grain process
    oil fields
    downtown roadblock
    over and over

    this solution may not work for everyone
