    As Rossco7530 and Dmbledore mention in the Comments section of one of the other solutions, this can be done in private horde.

    All you have to do is pick up the fabricator and don't put it down until everyone but the player holding it has pulled the horn and the lever is once again available to be pulled. At that point, the final player puts down the fabricator and pulls the lever. The achievement pops before the enemies begin to spawn.

    Runner eGirl1) Yes, you need a full team (5 people) and everyone must activate the horn. It doesn't have to be 5 separate consoles though, 2 players can be playing local coop (so that would be a minimum of 3 consoles to do this)

    2) I haven't tested, but I would assume yes, you can get this during waves. Not sure if it would have to be the same wave though

    3) You can try to host a session, might be easier to find people that way

    DoYouWantAntsDon't even need to get the fabricator (if you're using the private horde method), we all just took turns pulling the lever and it popped a few seconds after the 5th person did it.

    netstrykerWith randoms is a little difficult for a few obvious reasons. I did boosting with friends.

    Your best bet is to go for this one in a Co-op vs AI match on Casual (both Public and Private) and try to get either Harbor or Harbor Haze. The mode doesn't matter, but obviously modes that last longer like KOTH are preferable. While a Private match will be much quicker (potentially) since you can select the map, you can only do so if you own it. So if you don't have the season pass and you can't see it in the menu, you'll need at least one friend who does to be in the lobby.

    Get to the where the ship is and set up around the horn. The horn is that lever which is situated where the Embar and Longshot spawn. Take turns pulling the lever by pressing cn_X when standing in front of it, while trying to keep the enemies at bay. The horn takes some time before resetting and allowing the next person to pull it, so keep an eye out for when it resets and get the next person to pull it.

    It doesn't matter if anybody dies or if the round ends. The achievement will pop as soon as the fifth player pulls the horn before the end of the match.

    Rossco7530I got it in a private Horde match. We didn't touch the fabricator so no enemies spawned. clap

    DmbledoreNov 24 - I can confirm this works in Horde as I just got it. Someone pick up the Fabricator and take it to the horn and don't drop it. Have everyone pull the horn. Wait for the horn to reset then drop the Fabricator and pull the horn. Takes about 5 minutes.
