    A reference to the original Gears of War title, this can be unlocked in a Private match too, provided you own the map Security, by either buying it or buying the season pass. If you don't own the map, you need to do the same thing obviously, but in public Versus, where you just need some luck to get the map to appear in the rotation. A convenient workaround is that you only need one person in the private lobby to own the map and then you can select it from the menu in a Private Versus lobby, so you can get a friend that has the map to help you.

    Go to Versus > Host Private > Switch the map to Security > Press cn_start to open the match options menu > Switch "Fill with bots" to On. If you have a second controller, you can put your guest on the other team and not use bots at all. If you do end up playing with bots, keep the Bot Difficulty set to Casual just to make it easier and faster.

    You'll obviously need to be playing as Minh. Any variant of that character will do and his most common one, E-day Minh, can be crafted at any time for 600 Scrap.

    Start the match like you normally would and just go straight to the small balcony that's in the middle of the closed corridor. It's the one to your right hand side when you get out of the COG spawn. Walk up to the button, press cn_X to deactivate the lasers and then wait a bit for the sirens to go off, informing you that the lasers are about to be activated again. The achievement will pop then and it doesn't matter if you die in the process.

    EDIT: Based on xXKING R4VENXx's comment, this can also be unlocked in Horde.

    Anima PuraMinh only appears in Gears 1 and he is the one who's scripted to open the doors during the first few chapters of the campaign. He can be heard saying "I'll open the door, I've got the code".
    I didn't know what the code was in the description, however I wonder too why they put Benjamin's tag and not Anthony's.

    rafa1000houseSearching about it I discovered that all helmet Gears on the second game have Minh's head model, including Benjamin Carmine. So they literally have the same skin, the only difference being the helmet.

    I wonder if this achievement is supposed to be a joke and we can unlock it using Anthony or Ben Carmine, as they are also Minh variants. If someone could try I and my curiosity would be very thankful.

    netstrykerPretty easy and simple. In my case I hadn't the Minh skin. I had to craft before.

    As any variant of Minh, De-activate the lasers on Security.

    This can be done solo in horde!

    Host a private match:
    Pick the map Security, and caracter Minh.
    If u dont have him, you can create E-day Minh for 600 scrap.

    Start the match:
    Go straight into the building and out on the small balcony. No need to pick up the fabricator.
    Press X to turn off the lasers, and the achievement will unlock.
