    State of Decay 2: Juggernaut EditionShut UpThe Shut Up achievement in State of Decay 2: Juggernaut Edition worth 67 pointsKill a screamer with a CLEO heavy sniper rifle.


    Once you have done all of the above, you'll either have already earned this achievement or you are ready to grind it out the rest of the way. Do so by repeatedly starting a new game, completing either one or two waves, quitting to the main menu, and then starting a new game. You can complete a wave every four minutes this way. This is how it breaks down:

    Wave 1 - almost 2 minutes of menus, setup, loading screens, talking, etc. followed by a 2-minute wave of zombies.

    Wave 2 - 1 minute of intermission followed by a 3-minute wave of zombies.

    It is up to you whether you grind out 1-wave or 2-wave games. The 1-wave games might go slightly quicker than 4 minutes, like maybe 3:50 or 3:45 minimum, so for ultimate efficiency, there is a little bit of an edge to doing it that way. (Note that you will actually have to fight. Unfortunately, if you repair the wall at the beginning of Wave 1 and then go AFC, the zombies are going to break through. Between them and the feral, your technician may not survive.) Then again, some players may find finishing Wave 2 before restarting to be a little more enjoyable.

    It takes another 6 minutes to complete Wave 3, which is inefficient.

    Each percentage point on the progress indicator equals 3.43 waves, so at 4 minutes per wave, you're looking at about 13.7 minutes per percentage point. That equals 2 hours, 17 minutes for every 10 percentage points.

    DingadillyI was up around 45% tracker progress on this through natural play, going for unlocks and prestige and what not. The juggernaut update dropped and shortly afterwards my progress
    bar emptied itself. Doesnt appear to be tracking this one for me anymore. I've yet to try a box restart. Posting in this here in case mine is not an isolated occurrence.
    *edit* nevermind my xbox tracker sprang back to life after completing a daybreak session

    snake42069yeah thats how the tracker works now. You have to either succeed or fail in order for it to update the tracker.

    Wave 1 AFK Boosting

    The first wave takes 4 minutes including loading times (based on XboxX)

    You must pass 343 waves. I would not worry about this until after you are finished the rest of the DLC. I was at 48% when I completed all other achievements in this DLC.

    When you are ready (you must have the explosive mines), you can do the following.

    1. Start Daybreak
    2. At Weapons selection, press cn_RBcn_RB the then select mines.
    3. Start game. Hold cn_Y to bypass cinematic.
    4. Drop both sets of mines close to the tech but apart from each other.
    5. Rebuild fence.
    6. Talk to tech and start waves.
    7. Drop the controller and go do something more interesting. Return in 2-6 minutes.

    At first I was restarting immediately after wave 1 because i was sitting nearby. Then I started leaving it and I found my AI allies and mines can sometimes complete 2 waves and the game is easier to restart after failing. They even completed wave 3 on occasion - Good job Red Talon!!!
