    You can boost this with a second account. Log in with an Xbox Live Gamertag, guest accounts does not work! When you entered just stay in the back with the second player and be careful as the enemys are much stronger if you play with 2 players and only one actually fighting.

    Krom is an easy one, as he isn't moving and shoots from his turret. To kill him, simply kill all enemies that you encounter on your way and clear the whole area, so that only he is left.

    After that you may be lucky to stay next to a metal wall and have a small visual field through the peephole where you can use your sniper or pistol (or any weapon) with visor.
    Be careful, Krom might shoot his turret to you and you get massive damage nevertheless.

    When Krom dies you should get your achievement right away. You do NOT need to complete the quest, just kill the enemy.

    kiesan88My theory is that the 2nd account didn't finish the first mission, and noticed the objectives for the Krom mission said "invalid," or something like that. I'll go through a few missions and see if it changes for the Flynt fight.

    Gunrunner318Does anyone know if your spare account HAS to be an online or offline profile? ive tried an offline account i have and no co-op achievements popped dunno if this is a glitch or what

    cenGii91What do you mean offline profile? You need to be connected to Xlive Services with a full valid Xbox Gamertag since Guest Accounts are not allowed.

    Gunrunner318its not a guest profile and offline profile is a profile thats not online

    cenGii91You can play offline, but you won't get achievements. A pal of mine played it offline and then connected again, but none of the achievements that he would have had unlocked was popping. So you better be connected.

    KirkSadlerDoes it have to be the first time through a boss (so it counts as a quest) or can it be done at a later time?

    Breedhate68yeah this didnt unlock for me either, i helped my nephew fly threw first missions to sledge with my level 45 soldier. after killing sledge neither of us popped achievement. i think it needs to be first play through

    kiesan88It could be that it recognizes when a player is "afk," because I can go around and kill enemies with my main player, and if I move too far, the 2nd "player" stops getting money that the main player gets/shares.

    If I added points to the skill tree, then it starts taking in money again.

    Just a theory on this one

    Astral ArrayI've gotten all co-op achievements except this one atm, and play with 3 people one. i just made 2 new chars with 2 accounts. My account is gold and my other account is silver and still getting the achievements. Wouldn't sledge be a easier one if your just starting out? I'm using the 2nd controller method. Working this far

    RudigerMy main had finished playthru 1 (pt1). I started splitscreen co-op on pt1 with main as host and another account as player 2. I fast traveled to trash coast, sprinted out to rakk hive, and killed it. Low level player 2 stayed idle at entrance for all of this. Achievement popped on both accounts.
