This is actually much easier than I originally perceived.

The thing is, when the achievement refers to a "buzzer beater", alot of people (including myself initially) would assume they'd have to launch a wild long shot will a crazy low percentage to make the basket to win the game. If this were true, this would be a real b!tch of an achievement right?

Well, the good news is that's not required. All you have to do is make ANY shot that sinks after the buzzer to win the game, which is much more doable.

What I did was let the opposing team keep score with me all the way through, and i had the ball when there was 10 seconds left. I played down the timer til about 1-2 seconds left, make a high percentage 2 point shot very close to the basket, which sunk after the buzzer and popped the achievement.

Other tips to help:

- Set the timer on 2 MIN a quarter in the options, makes the games go quicker (handy for other campaign related achievements also).

- Set difficulty to EASY, so you can control the scoreboard easier, however with doing this -

- Be wary of your partner - sometimes he would go bananas on a hot streak constantly stealing the ball from the opponents and blocking their shots, stuffing the scoreboard and causing me to miss this achievement the first 2 times i tried. Try give the ball back as fast as possible if this happens by throwing crappy passes or long bogus shots, or running at the opponent players to force them to steal.

- Choose a player with a high 2pt shot rating.

Other than this, it shouldn't take too many tries to pop this guy.
