    I confirm that you can select and finish the 50 or 25 wave (thank you Princess BenKun ), just choose any map, grab your friends, I suggest to play as the sniper and use the following cards

    You and your friends commit suicide the scout will pick up your energy, and use sniper strike or team revive if one of your buddies get down.

    *Original Solution*

    A speedrun is the best option, play on lift or War Machine, there are a lot of sessions with those maps.
    I enjoy playing as the Soldier, I use these cards
    1 hour per speedrun, you will get the cheevo on 3 hours

    if you like to play by yourself play the juvie madness option, just go to settings and select juvie madness

    Then play as the scout with the following cards, you can change the first one for the shotgun capacity, I recommend play with cards at lvl 3 or 4 (minimum)

    Juvie madness is a match with 25 waves of juvies and the trackers (the enemy ball) waves 5,10,15,20 and 25 spawn bosses (pouncers, robots, scion) you can handle it. (1 hour 45 minutes average)

    Radiant FlamesJust a side note that Snatcher would be a Prefer Boss when playing as the Sniper, and the location that I used would be inside the building where you would normally do the Sniper Strike. Carrier is doable if you manage to get DBs and Sentinels, but Krestals wasn't any good since there will be half the wave left once you burn through fab money, haven't tested a brumak yet since I didn't get one.

    I was playing solo when I got the challenge done with my current Sniper set:
    Called Shot Lv. 6
    Headshot Damage Lv. 6
    Precision Rifle Damage Lv. 6
    Sniper Strike Lv. 6
    Explosive Headshot Lv. 5

    rafa1000houseI did it playing alone:

    - juvie madness
    - wave 25
    - scout
    - lvl 6 "health regen/boost" cards
    - any map (blood drive torque bow spot is a nice place to camp while you press B to kill juvies and shoot trackers)

    Shout out to Princess BenKun for finding out that you only need to do Wave 50 (or 25 if you want to go the other route, I only cover 50 in this guide).

    Map: Blood Drive
    Difficulty: Casual
    Wave: 50

    Class: Sniper
    -Headshot Damage
    -Precision Rifle Damage
    -Explosive Headshot
    -Precision Rifle Capacity
    -Sniper Strike (you can swap this out for something else)
    All my skills were at least level 5, higher will obviously be better but this is still very doable. Lower skill cards might be able to do it but it might take you a bit longer.

    Watch this video:

    That person is playing on a harder difficulty so that just means we can get more wiggle room for error.

    Use the Fabricator to block the door. (If you have a hard time placing it, make sure you're outside of the spawn to push it in.)
    Put down two Sentry Turrets facing the spawn area and then put three Decoys blocking the other door then put down the two floor spike traps the way you see them in the video.

    Now wait to see if you got a Snatcher spawn, they should appear top of the stairs opposite the ones you're next to on the other side of the map. If it's not a Snatcher, die and check again.
    Once you get the Snatcher run inside and hug the wall as shown in the video.
    (If you decided to take Sniper Strike, you can get it off two or sometimes three times before the Snatcher comes. Be careful as it will insta-kill you at close range.)
    Now just do as you see in the video, stay on that wall and watch for the occasional spawn inside the spawn area or the room with the Decoys blocking it. Move a Sentry Turret if needed.
    Usually only two Snatchers spawn but if you kill them more quickly than the other enemies then you might get three.

    Once you got a good run going, should take roughly five minutes to complete the wave. So if you account for the odd mess up or waiting for the right boss to spawn, this really shouldn't take more than thirty minutes to get the three waves done.
