    Edit: As of Operation 5, there are now multiple reports this unlocks at ally Level 1. The below is still accurate with the exception you only need to get to ally Level 1 to unlock this now.

    Contrary to the 'buggy' flag, I don't believe this is bugged, the description is just a little misleading.

    To unlock this achievement, you need to get a gears ally to level 3 (not level 1, as you might believe from the achievement description). A gears ally is simply another person you play Gears 5 with. Every time you play something with them, you get ally xp.

    The needed xp as of Operation 4 is 400xp.

    Breakdown
    Level 1 - 25 ally xp
    Level 2 - 125 ally xp (cumulative 150 xp)
    Level 3 - 250 ally xp (cumulative 400 xp)

    The fastest way to get xp is to play the Co-op vs. AI playlist (beginner) and then voting for Gridiron every time. You get 70xp per grid iron game.

    Note: Ideally you should pair this with BFFs:

    ShidaraIs this Online Co-Op only? I've been trying with two controllers/gamertags, but no progress has been made as an ally.

    GatorFistI think it has to be another person, not just another controller.

    xCUBBYxxxBEARxI did nothing towards this achievement and it unlocked for me at the main menu. Honestly haven't even played this game in a year or so. May unlock randomly for others...

    GatorFistCubby, it might be retroactive to the past if you played with a friend a couple times or something and got Level 1.
