    Honestly, this is a really easy one. Simply just don't build any additional units for the first 5 rounds of the new Firefight.

    I actually got this accidentally and you can still build turrets, walls and buildings etc. as this won't prevent the achievement from popping.

    Cheva1ierDon't change the settings and then reset them with RS either in the lobby, my friend and I did this and the achievement wouldn't pop in co-op. When I got back to lobby after resigning in wave 7 from waiting for the achievement to pop, I got a warning message that "settings other than the default would mean that our scores don't get posted to the leaderboards" which also voids all achievements. This still happened after I had reset the settings to default using RS and had to hit A to confirm. The way to fix it is to back out and start a new lobby without ever going into the settings, and immediately start the game. The achievement should pop shortly after you get the "boss cleared/wave cleared" message for killing the boss in wave 5.
