    aww0Took me until round 26 to get this. Think you could do it a lot sooner though because many of mine were challenges requiring the big gladiators, tigers and blight fathers, the latter two being not so common. I did the entire thing just running in circles around the starting area and using the gun you get for three challenges completed.

    I DID NOT have to do the "Blight Father Tounge" challenge during my play through for the cheev, so I advise keep retrying until you get the same final challenge I did if you are having trouble with the Blight Father Tounge kill.

    - Try to keep one Gladiator or zombie alive to give you less distractions while trying this
    - Start by shooting the Puss Pack off the back of the Blight Father
    - Then when he tounges you up make sure to fire all you got at his head with your strongest weapon
    (I used a fully PaP'd Hades LMG)
    - If you shoot off his jaw before hand then he wont be able to shoot his tounge at you and will just follow you around shooting its blasts

    Here is a video showing how to Kill a Blight Father While Getting Tounged for the challenge in IX ZOMBIES, as well as showing the 9 challenges I completed for this achievement.

    Here are the links to the videos to help with the Brazen Bull & Death Of Orion:



    My 9 challenges were as follows:

    1 - Knife Kill 13 Zombies

    2 - Get 6 Equipment Kills

    3 - Slide Under A Blade Trap w/o Taking Damage

    4 - Get 9 Kills w/ The "Brazen Bull"

    5 - Survive A Whole Round Inside The Temple

    6 - Break Off 9 Pieces of Gladiator Armor

    7 - Hit 9 Zombies w/ A Single Charged Shot From The "Death Of Orion"

    8 - Kill 9 Gladiators

    9 - Get 20 Kills w/o Leaving The Challenge Podium

    I TRU RELIG1ONSurely if you shoot off his jaw and he cant spit his tongue at you, are you being "tongued" if he is just spitting at you? just asking not being a dick or anything.
