    In this guide, I will detail how you can boost the following achievements with just one other person in Quick Match:

    Happy WarsMedal EnthusiastThe Medal Enthusiast achievement in Happy Wars worth 779 pointsCollect a total of 1000 Medals, regardless of type

    Happy WarsAngel of DeathThe Angel of Death achievement in Happy Wars worth 819 pointsKill 1000 enemies in Quick Match

    Happy WarsSecret AchievementThe Secret Achievement achievement in Happy Wars worth 568 pointsContinue playing to unlock this secret achievement

    Happy WarsMegalopolisThe Megalopolis achievement in Happy Wars worth 362 pointsBuild 300 towers in Quick Match or Co-op Mode

    Happy WarsWar VeteranThe War Veteran achievement in Happy Wars worth 92 pointsGain 20 victories in Quick Match

    Happy WarsWar MastermindThe War Mastermind achievement in Happy Wars worth 705 pointsGain 100 victories in Quick Match

    For this boosting method to work, each person will need a total of three controllers (so one for your main account and two guest accounts.)

    Once you have all three controllers signed in, search for a Quick Match with your boosting partner. You should find each other pretty easily, as this game is pretty dead except for the no-lifers that still play it. While we're on the subject of that, if at any point you get matched up with randoms, go to their Gamercard, block them, then back out of the lobby and re-search. I've noticed that blocking randoms stops them from being able to match up with you again (or this has just been a crazy coincidence for me, as every random I've blocked, I never got matched up with them again.)

    Once you secure a lobby with your boosting partner and his two guest accounts, the match will start. Depending on which map you get, you'll have 8-15 minutes to work on medals, kills, and towers (8 minutes on small maps with 1 tower, 10 minutes on medium maps with 3-5 towers, and 15 minutes on large maps with 7 towers.) You'll notice that each team has a single bot, which depending on what class they're playing, might become a nuisance during the game, so be ready to kill a bot that gets in your way. Have your main account select the Cleric class and spawn your two guest accounts as Mages (it is important that the dummy accounts are Mages, as they have less health than Warriors and Clerics, and them having less health will make kills later on in the game go by faster.)

    During this game, we are going to be working on getting medals, kills, and towers all at the same time. If you only need to work on one of these three things, this guide will detail the best way to work on just that thing, but for the sake of clarity and convenience, this guide will be written assuming you'll be working on all three concurrently.

    Once the game starts, move to the first tower spawn and build it to get credit for a tower. Once that first tower is built, move to the next tower (which, chances are, will be the middle tower) and build that to get credit for your second tower. Since most of the maps in this game are medium size and have three towers, this is probably where you and your boosting partner will meet up; each accompanied by your annoying bot companion. Each booster should focus on killing the enemy bot and whoever scores the first kill will get the Spearhead medal. Once the bots are dead, the second person can build the second tower.

    NOTE FOR PEOPLE FOCUSING ON TOWERS ONLY: If you and your boosting partner are ONLY focusing on building towers for the Megalopolis achievement, then both players should stay at the middle tower and build the tower back and forth. To aid in this process, I would add the Construction Speed Up buff to your weapon, as this will make building the tower go by slightly faster. My boosting partner and I also moved one of our dummy accounts to the tower we were building back and forth to help in building the towers quicker, which meant you were now holding cn_LT on two controllers instead of one. Be prepared for the bots to occasionally spawn at the tower after it's built, but I found that this doesn't happen too often, as the bot usually just wanders around between the main base and the first tower, so you shouldn't have to worry about this too much. If you are focusing on medals and kills as well, continue reading.

    After you've had your turn at building the second tower, move on to the third and final tower location (which, chances are, will be the tower right outside of the enemy base, since most maps are medium size with three tower spawns.) Be prepared to cross paths with the bot again and kill them when necessary. Once you build your third tower, you will receive the King of Construction medal.

    Now that your tower medal is done, we are going to work on getting into the enemy base. Go to the front of the enemy base and spawn the building materials for a Battering Ram using the cn_B button skill, Summon Materials (I'm not sure if this is a default cn_B button skill, or if I have a buff for it equipped to my setup. Could someone confirm this?)

    Once you have the materials spawned in, build the battering ram out of it by holding the cn_LT button (your Construction Speed Up buff will help in building the battering ram faster.) Once the battering ram is built, use it with cn_LT until the front gate breaks. Upon entering the base, you will receive the First Off the Mark medal for being the first person to breach the enemy base. Depending on your XP buffs, you might have also received the Maximum Level medal for reaching Level 5 in a match. If you're not Level 5 yet, you will have no problem getting there by the time the match ends.

    Now that you're in the enemy base, you will see your boosting partner's two Mage dummy accounts sitting there. Go BEHIND them and attack them until they die. Killing enemies from behind are considered Ambush attacks and will give you progress towards the Heart of a Ninja achievement. You also do more damage hitting people in the back anyway, so get used to attacking these guest accounts from behind. When the dummy accounts die, be sure you and your boosting partner are making them respawn at the enemy base so that you can continue getting kills.

    Depending on what team is in control of the towers, the bots will spawn at the base and try to kill you, so obviously kill them whenever they spawn in. Other times, the bots will spawn closer to the enemy base and try to destroy the enemy's big tower. When this happens, take control of one of the guest accounts and kill the bot so that they don't end the game prematurely. The most important thing is to make sure the bot DOES NOT KILL YOU, or else you will lose progress towards some of the medals that you're going for.

    While killing dummy accounts/bots in the enemy base, you should get the following medals:

    The Ripper (three kills in one game without dying or changing class)
    The Assassin (five ambush kills, aka kills from behind)
    Nightmare (ten kills in one game without dying or changing class)
    Tyrant (kill ten enemies with scores lower than you)
    The Killer at the Lake (twenty kills in one game without dying or changing class)
    NBK (thirty kills in one game without dying or changing class)
    Way Out in Front (I would occasionally get this medal, but am not sure what it was for. Perhaps having the highest score in the match for a period of time?)

    Once both players have gotten their NBK medal, whoever needs the win can destroy the big tower. When the game ends, you and/or your boosting partner will receive the following medals:

    The Champion (most kills in a single game)
    MVP (finish a game with the most kills and least deaths out of all players)
    Survive! (longest survival time in a single game)
    Immortality (finish a game without dying)

    Keep in mind, achievement progress updates at the conclusion of each game. It DOES NOT update in real time! If you leave a match or get disconnected, you will lose all of the progress you made for that game!

    My boosting partner and I were averaging over 30 kills towards Angel of Death and 9-15 medals towards Medal Enthusiast each game using this method. Once the game is over, you and your boosting partner will still be in the same lobby, and if no randoms join, the next game will start in 15-30 seconds. If randoms join, remember to go to their Gamercard, block them, then back out of the lobby and re-search.

    Once you have finished all of your medals and kills, wins can be boosted the same way, except instead of building towers and killing dummies/bots for ten minutes, just go to the enemy base as a Cleric, Spawn Materials for a battering ram, build the battering ram, use the battering ram to get into the base, and destroy the enemy's big tower over and over again until you've each unlocked War Veteran and War Mastermind.

    PalesiusIf you have four controllers you can avoid the bots FYI.

    VictimOfDesireOh really? That's good to know! I only have three controllers myself, so my partner and I just dealt with the bots.

    SuperschrubberI tried with a dummy account but since i am placed in the "Immortal" league for some reason i am unable to connect. I have zero chance to win against people with 1000+ hours played so if anyone is in the same boat and has 4 controllers please hit me up on XBL and we can do it together.

    Since Happy Wars is a team game, your progress of getting 100 wins in Quick Match will be depending on the skill of your in-game teammates. The safe bet is that you will likely win 50% of your games over time just by random chance and you will need approximately 200 full matches to reach this milestone.

    The problem you will encounter is the game has serious networking issue as matches either fail to start, or players get disconnected mid game. All in-game progress is lost when you are kicked from the game so expect lots of frustration and wasted time. The games on the Xbox One fail much more frequently than on the Xbox 360, so to speed things along you may want to make progress toward this achievement on the Xbox 360 while you still can.

    You can track your progress in their achievement via the Xbox One as it accurately shows your percent competition to this goal. There are several in-game missions with Quick Match victory milestones, however, the missions are all buggy and both wins and losses are counted in the so they will likely overstate your progress toward unlocking this achievement which indeed only counts victories.

    Up until April 11, 2018, your cumulative game stats are all cloud saved and achievements can be earned cross-platform. Wins earned in Quick Match on both the Xbox 360 and Xbox One do count as progress for their achievement. If you have been playing on the Xbox 360 version, all you need to do is play 1 single game of Quick Match to completion on the Xbox One. As soon as you have a combined 100 wins the achievement will pop. After April 11th, 2018 this will no longer be the case as ToyLogic has announced the syncing of save data between the platforms will be discontinued on that date. After which you will have to earn any addition wins you need to reach the 100 win milestone exclusively on the Xbox One.

    FxH FinalThe real problems are preformed parties of players with level 60 and 3000+ hours of gameplay each. You cannot withstand a fight against them, even if you are level 60 but you simply stopped playing before the Super Enchantments got spread on everything. There is an incredible mismatch.

    I will add a suggestion to your solution: this achievement can be easily boosted with just 1 friend if both of you use other controllers. The minimum number of player to start is 6. So basically 3 vs 3 can be achieved with 2 players and 3 controllers each. It's also easy to find each other because, to be honest, no one is playing this game in quick match...

    VictimOfDesire^ that's interesting. Is that how you've been getting the Quick Match achievements? I'll have to try that out, since it seems a lot easier than finding 6+ people to boost with. This game allows you to just have 2 guests signed in with your main?

    Darkness727420@victim. That's how me and a buddy did this and the tower achievement. The tower achievement is easier in coop, but you can work your ways towards 300 while boosting quick matches.
