    For this achievement you must open every CLEO drop in a match, I take an object to make sure it counts.

    Tip: Try doing this in single player since other players can't take your loot

    Edit: some people ask me how i managed to do this in solo, so here is my strategy.

    Start items:
    CLEO Shotgun / CLEO Assault Shotgun
    Explosive Fuel tank / Minefield
    CLEO Longblade

    Start the game, use the fuel tanks near the technician in case the zeds overrun the place, save the shotgun and bullets in one of the chests. take the "bad" shotgun from one of the chests and use it until round 3.

    Round 3 also start the CLEO drops so pick them too. (pick all the CLEO bullets and explosives from the drops, maybe a couple of bandages for the technician too)

    Round 4
    save all the previous items, now use the assault rifle (SCAR) form the middle box.

    Round 5-7
    Use the CLEO Shotgun to clean waves, use explosives to kill juggernauts, then execute them with RT + X.

    Gram101216Does this only unlock for host? Last night I played a session with 3 people, I was host and am the only one that got it... This is after the recent 7.5 GB update

    To unlock this achievement, you will need to open every CLEO drop that appears on the field between waves, and then survive Wave 7 to victory. By "you," that means you, not you or a teammate. By "open," that means approach the drop and press cn_Y to open it. You don't need to empty it out or remove any items from it "just to make sure." Any other solution, or comment to another solution, saying you need to remove an item from each one, remove a stack, empty it, or whatever, is wrong. I unlocked the achievement after simply opening and peeking at many of the drops.

    You can do this in a solo game, but it may be difficult, because between repairing walls, healing the tech, placing mines, etc., you may have insufficient time to open each drop and still put yourself in a favorable position to win. But, it can be done.

    It can also be done in a multiplayer match, but the challenge there is that if another player empties a CLEO drop, it self-destructs so that you can't open it. So, if you're having trouble, the easiest way is to get in a match with one other human player and have him/her agree not to empty any of the drops. Even better, have that person agree to let you open all of them first while he does wall repairs, then he can go behind you and take your leftovers from the CLEO drops. When a drop has been opened by any player, it changes color and stops pulsing on the minimap, so where there are many drops on the field, if you know you're the only player opening them, you can tell at a glance whether you've opened it .

    EDIT: BRANIAC1972 writes, "I can confirm as of 27th of July 2019 only the host gets the achievement if they open all 25 Cleo drops."

    The number of drops after each wave is:
    Wave 1 - 0
    Wave 2 - 4
    Wave 3 - 4
    Wave 4 - 5
    Wave 5 - 6
    Wave 6 - 6

    Total: 25

    BRANIAC1972Same issue for me. Opened all 25 and beat all waves. Nothing. I wonder if only the host gets this? I have been in multiplayer games, but as a guest, not the host. Anyone have any ideas?

    BRANIAC1972Ok, I can confirm as of 27th of July 2019 only the host gets the achievement if they open all 25 Cleo drops. Easy way to do this is in a private match and whoever is hosting leads the other players to each Cleo drop.

    TnxkAs of May 10th, 2020, you do not have to be host to obtain this achievement. You just have to be the first to open up each supply drop!
