    This achievement seems to be glitched/unlocking for a lot of people. It was glitched for me after my first play through. The problem is completing a challenge during the prologue. I even did 130+ challenges and it still wouldn't unlock.

    To unlock it, 1) I deleted my save and restarted the game. 2) I completed the prologue on EASY to ensure I would not get credit for the challenge of completing the prologue. 3) I then did 100 challenges and it unlocked immediately.

    Some of the other easy of achievement not closing the game out before shutting the Xbox off. I suggest closing the game out before shutting down the Xbox.

    Ape King IræTo add to your guide, which I've been contemplating on making, but ultimately was fine being done with this glitched achievement that took 4 playthroughs to unlock.

    Anyway, closing the game before turning off your Xbox didn't work for me. I did it with my second and 3rd playthrough, and I was devestated after logging on and getting to 100 challenges, it still wasn't unlocking the cheivo for me.

    Also, changing the difficulty can be very risky, but I'm glad it worked for you, as it hasn't worked for some others, saying that NO you cannot lower the difficulty or anything, but might not apply to raising it?

    This one has layers and layers of bugs. If you are truly dedicated, and hate yourself at the same time, take 4 hours outta your day to just do all 100 challenges in one go. Thats how I unlocked it it the end. No save and quit gambling (at this point) just powering through and sucking it up. Streamed the whole thing and went on a shooting spree in game to celebrate.

    I'm glad there is finally a guide for this once guideless buggy piece of trash chievo.

    Take everything I say with a grain of salt, though. Trust the guide that works, not the commentor who struggled, trying random different things that ultimately led me to needing 4 playthroughs for this achievement alone.

    If not, fuck this achievement. I don't know if I hated underdome in borderlands 1 or this one more. Both sucked the life outta me.

    I ASK NO ONEI did all challenges in the prologue and just popped the 50 challenges achievement on Run For Your Life mission. It may be patched now. I'm not sure about the 100 challenges achievement, but the 50 had no issue unlocking for me and I have done 100% of the challenges up to the RFYL mission.

    I ASK NO ONEI can confirm it must be patched or I got lucky. I did all challenges in the tutorial mission and all challenges up thru Great Balls of Fire (exactly 100) and it popped right away before the mission ended.

    iViluxCompleted 100 challenges in whatever way in various difficulties without taking any precautions but before finishing the game (I reached the praetorians but didn't kill them yet). Had no issue unlocking.
