    The description for Big Ol Hero says
    Win a round of dodgeball in which you had been the last man standing.

    The ribbon can only obtain n Coop VS, Social or Core mode. That applies for all VS ribbons.
    Thanks to ClevelandFan


    The easier method is Just get a squad of 5 and play coop versus on casual. Vote for dodgeball and get 4 players killed. The last person kills the remaining bots.

    As long as the last one actual kills all remaining bots.

    Thanks to Kelle1994


    To boost this one you have to use two complete teams (10 players).
    You can do it with less people if someone uses a second controller.

    (Hint: Minimum are 6 players 2 people with second controllers on each team.)

    (Hint: The team leaders should made a list of their team nembers to note how many ribbons each one get.)

    To avoid interfering with other players switch the region to Latin America or Asia/Australia.
    You find it under option and region.


    Note: Both leaders must be in the same region.

    Go to Versus and select Core Mode / Dodgeball

    The team leaders should push the buttons synchronized to start the search.
    This will increase the chances to find each other.

    1.) Meet at some point on the map.
    2.) The player who will get the ribbon from team 1 steps aside or stays at the spawn point.
    3.) Team 2 kills everyone else.
    4.) Now the player who will get ribbon from Team 1 kills team 2.

    The player get the ribbon.

    Change player and team every round.

    For a ten player party you have to play 100 rounds. That is nearly 15 matches.

    (Hint: After each match the team leaders should secure that everyone push B for quitting the statistic fast, so why can start the search again.)

    N3OANG3LBut for the two team solution it's faster.

    TuschiMaybe I got this wrong but once you kill an enemy your team gets a respawn, right? Do you have to kill every enemy before that happens? Or do you just have to win the round without actually killing all the remaining enemies yourself?

    N3OANG3LYou have to win the round.

    GMNYou don't have to personally kill the rest of the enemy's, you just need to go on to win the round.

    KAW 24Can multiple players earn the ribbon in a round? E.g. you go down to one player multiple times, but a different player each time.

    Yummy BaklavaMake this easier on yourselves.

    Co-op versus AI - Hardcore

    I went from 30% to 100% a lot quicker than it took me to get 10%

    Just hold back, shoot at the odd enemy here and there, eventually you will be the last one alive and you will have a chance to kill one or even two enemies before your backup arrives and takes care of whatever is left.

    JX JuniorHow do you change your region? I see the "matchmaking" in the options menu but you can't choose which one.
