    Clear the two Lightning Skeleton Arenas in the Great Temple, either solo playing as Jaguar, or co-op playing as any characters.

    If you have a cleared game save on Hard, load that up and head to one of the stone faces. Warp to the Great Temple, and head to the two locations on the map where the arenas take place.

    Even though arenas don't respawn, the devs have re-triggered these two with the update so that you don't have to run all the way back through the game again, provided you never deleted your Hard mode clear file. However, you only get ONE shot at the achievement, so if you clear either of the two arenas by yourself without using the Jaguar character, you WILL have to go back through the game on hard.

    Make sure to get your Intenso meter filled up, then trigger the first fight. As soon as the four-armed ground pounder enemy spawns, immediately activate Intenso and take him out ASAP. The faster you kill him, the fewer lightning skeletons you have to deal with.

    For the second arena, again make sure your Intenso meter is full before starting. Clear the first few enemies. As soon as the hammer enemies spawn, activate Intenso and try to knock one of them down into the corner on the bottom level, opposite any remaining enemies from the first wave, so that it is besinde the hammer enemy that spawns in that corner. Fight these two in the corner away from the other enemies. Take out any remaining enemies from the first wave, then try to take out one of the remaining two hammer ones before the lightning skeletons spawn. Once they spawn, fight the two of them in the corner furthest from the final hammer enemy. After they're dead, finish off the 4th hammer enemy and nab your achievement.

    MathGuy42I'm fully upgraded and I still can't get it done. How am I supposed to dodge and at the same time jump up to kill the exploders?

    Somehow I got to the pounder once. Even with Intenso, it took too long to beat him, so a ton of new lightning guys came out.

    I wish they hadn't patched the health regen glitch.

    LifeExpectancyFor the exploder part I would dodge the other enemies making sure I dodged toward the exploder spawn, then use the uppercut move to hit the exploder. If you're struggling, make sure your intenso isnt just filled enough to use but a comletely full bar so that when the pounder spawns you can activate it and just spam the dash move back and forth on him so that he never even has a chance to pound.

    MathGuy42Thanks for the advice. I got it. The first part is incredibly random. I finally got lucky and got all the exploders and also took out the red guys quickly. Then it was a case of learning the correct distance to dash at the pounder. I took him out quickly enough to only spawn one lightning guy.

    Also, a friend said you can dash through the beam under the lightning guys. That seems to be the case. It was hard to tell though with things being so frenetic.

    I had heard that Xbox One achievements might have issues currently, so I took D34dBodyMan's advice above and went offline before entering the second arena. After beating it, I quit the whole game and deleted the console save. As soon as I went online, before even starting the game again, the achievement unlocked. After syncing the cloud save back, the second arena was still there, so this is a good backup method if you're concerned something might go wrong.

    ReaboHow do i change costume?
    Posted by Reabo on 01 Dec 15 at 18:48
    MathGuy42You change costumes at any of the save stations. Choose Costumes in the popup menu. Once you own the Frenemies pack, you should see the character choices among the other costumes.

    BeachemHas anyone tried doing this in co-op? Wouldn't it be a lot easier?

    Jagd Gray WolfJust a reminder, if you accidentally did one of the arenas with a wrong character make sure you do the second one correctly. After you defeat the boss the one arena I missed in the earlier section got reset and I was able to do it correctly with the right character. It turns out only the arenas you didnt do correctly for the achievement reset. Hope it helps
