    Still blocked but apparently can be done with a huge amount of effort. See this post by Sabin VI for more information.
    Kane & Lynch Leaderboard Update

    Further Edit (December 2013)

    Unfortunately it seems like the blockers have control of the leaderboards again. If you're still hoping to get these I can only suggest you contact the people at the top of the boards (although previous advice against paying these people for services still stands) to see what the situation is. Alternatively you might consider messaging some of the TA members who most recently unlocked the achievements to see if they have any advice.

    Post Leaderboard Reset Edit

    Thanks to the incredibly dedicated efforts of numerous TA members (you all know who you are toast) these achievements are very much obtainable at the time of writing this edit. Over a year ago a petition to reset the leaderboards was created and submitted to Eidos, amazingly they listened and the leaderboards were eventually reset on October 1st 2013. Over the 10 days following the reset (again as of time of writing this edit) a huge community effort has been underway to help pass the achievements down through as many decent achievement-loving folk as humanly possible before blockers and anti-boosters wrestle back control of the leaderboards and return them to the huge mess they were in for the previous 5+ years.
    Right now if you want the leaderboard achievements your best bet (probably only hope to be honest) would be to head on over to this forum thread (Boosting Gaming Session for Kane & Lynch: Dead Men) and hope that the good people running the ladder are willing to accept new members. These guys are regular TA community members who have stepped up and gone to extraordinary lengths to keep this going as long as they have so give them the respect that they deserve and understand that their decisions are made with the best intentions of the boosting community and are final. If you don't like it, tough luck.

    Original solution, will probably become applicable again when the boosting ladder is finished
    To unlock Lynch as a playable character you have to reach the number 2 spot on the ranked overall leaderboard.
    However the leaderboards have been completely blocked by a couple of clans who seem to be in constant competition with each other for the top spots (judging by the bio posts on some of their accounts) and have created dozens of alt accounts which are in control of the entire top of the leaderboard.
    Because of this the achievement is virtually unobtainable. These guys may advertise helping people get to the top spots if you give them Microsoft points or gold membership cards but this is likely a scam as well as being against the Microsoft Terms of Use and is a permabannable offence so I would seriously recommend against it.
    The only foreseeable way the achievement could be obtained is if the leaderboards are reset and sadly that is unlikely to happen.

    In order to get this achievement you must be number 2 on the leaderboard and play as Lynch in Fragile Alliance.

    This video I created describes one of the most effective methods of boosting to the top of the leaderboards.

    Something I left out of this video that is very important is that you should not be using your main account in these rotations until you have a dummy account at number 1. Once you have a dummy at number 1 on the boards you can add in your main account to de rank the dummy and take the top or second spot.

    You must be number 2 on the leaderboards to get this achievement. The achievement pops next match when you are actually playing as Lynch.

    You have to play with at least 4 accounts (1,2,3,4). If you want to rank up with account 1 he has to become in first place. You are using your highest 3 accounts to build up a ladder for your next dummy account (account 1= fresh dummy, account 2= highest dummy, account 3= second highest dummy, account 4= lowest dummy). Start up the match with 3 rounds.

    First round:

    player 2 kills player 4
    player 3 kills player 2
    player 1 has to hold the grenade. player 3 kills player 1 and has to stand on the grenade after that.

    Second / Third round:
    player 3 kills player 4
    player 2 kills player 3
    player 1 has to hold the grenade. player 2 kills player 1 and has to stand on the grenade after that.

    cash earned:
    player 1: 600k
    player 2: 200k
    player 3: 100k
    player 4: 0

    Play double the amount of games it took for the fresh account to overtake your highest level account. Player 4 will replace his dummy with a new dummy. He will become player 1, player 1 becomes player 2, player 2 becomes player 3 and player 3 becomes player 4.

    You do this until your dummies are rank 1+2 (third account in the top 10) on the leaderboards. Then you start playing with your main account. This is the most important part. DO NOT PLAY WITH YOUR MAIN ACCOUNT BEFORE.

    Of course you can also play with 5 or 6 players. They would have to suicide. 4 players are minimum.

    If you do a mistake the host can dashboard. This achievement is NOT stackable. If you rank up straight to rank 1 without playing as Lynch you have 2 choices. Derank your account or rank up your next account.
