    This achievement can also be obtained by using a single Adrenaline Syringe, as using one puts your boost gauge to 100% automatically. I can confirm this works, as that's how I unlocked the achievement.

    If you can't find an Adrenaline Syringe, you can also get to full boost by using either two painkillers (60 boost each), three energy drinks (40 boost each), or one painkiller and one energy drink (exactly 100 boost.)

    Chester CheevoI got super lucky and the first house I went into on my last game had 4 Energy Drinks!

    VictimOfDesireYeah, with the addition of Sanhok to the game, finding the required loot for this makes it even easier than it already was on the first two maps.

    VictimOfDesireSeems to be the case with this game this week. My friend unlocked this today after taking an Adrenaline Syringe, so hopefully once BlueHole gets their shit sorted out, a bunch of achievements will pop for people.

    MeowyMeowersonI have tried this over and over again and it just won't pop even though my boost gauge gets full.

    MAST3R SHAKE04I have tried this with just energy drinks, just painkillers, and a mix of the two. The only thing I haven't found is an adrenaline syringe. I've been fully boosted at least 10 times by now but have not had this achievement unlock.

    VictimOfDesireSomething to try for everyone that has yet to get this to unlock: when you guys are getting your boost gauge to max, are you already at full health? Both my duo partner and I got this after popping an adrenaline shot trying to recover our health. Perhaps if you're already at full health when you overdose, it doesn't count, as the game wants to see the overdose heal health?

    zeldafanjtlI tried doing the painkiller/energy drink combo and the achievement didn't pop. I believe I was at full health, but I don't remember for sure.

    I used an adrenaline syringe at full health and it popped.

    VictimOfDesireAnother possibility is that by the time you use the painkiller and energy drink, your energy meter has worn off below 100% due to the casting time of the items, so maybe using another painkiller/energy drink will put you over the 100%.
