    If you're looking for an alternative to just straight up playing on insane. What I did was play split screen with a guest and set there difficulty to casual, whilst keeping my main profile set to insane. I could then sit back with my insane profile and do all the work with my second controller that is set to casual. This is a good method if you're also looking to bust out the three co-op campaign related achievements. This method will save you the hassle of replaying the campaign numerous times and gain you all the campaign related achievements along the way! Hope it helps!

    NessNoldoI was wondering if you just need to do the last part of every chapter in Insane to unlock this. Anyone can confirm?

    In addition to the solutions posted below, I feel it necessary to include the following, so that my pain is not shared!

    If playing co-op split screen, then this achievement can be unlocked for both players by having one person play on insane, and one on casual, however the person on insane must be player one (Marcus). Having it set the other way around will result in both players only getting the achievement for playing through on casual.

    Following on from this, I would assume (though I would be grateful if somebody could confirm this) that if doing a similar thing online, the host must be the insane player.

    I hope that this guide helps cut some time off for co-op players, I know that DeathOnWings37 and myself just discovered this the hard way.

    AbsohailAs far as i have tried, only the host can choose the difficulty which means that both the players will be playing at insane.

    Just gonna put up how I did this,
    I played on insane whilst my teammate played on casual (this was on split-screen by the way). I just stuck back for the entire campaign and picked off the enemies as much as I could whilst also resisting the urge to run up and help, I tried to let my teammate do all the running and gunning. They can do most of the work but you must be careful when required to split for them because a death (from either of you) is an instant fail, no DBNO. But upon completing the campaign we both got this achievement as well as the other difficulty related achievements.
