    -----4. 20 RE-UPS-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    *Get to Lv100 and "Re-Up" to Lv1 20 times*

    "If they really did patch idle xp boosting, here is method I used to get 4x more xp than idling to get my seriously (with boost of course).

    Load up [The Mines] on Master. Open the pod, leave the beginning room and then melee a juvie/reject. Once they are dead, you will get the "First" ribbon. You can then pause and press return to lobby. Once you load out, you will have gotten around 1650 xp (825 xp if you don't have boost). The whole process takes about 3 minutes between loading in, breaking out of the pod, killing the enemy and loading out.

    At 3 minutes per 1650 xp, you are netting around 33000 xp per hour. In the later reups that probably 2-5 levels and hour."
    - @Ace Annihilates

    Idle XP Grinding has been patched unfortunately :( You can try the old method to see if that still works
    *** Spoiler - click to reveal ***

    Old Method for Anyone Interested:

    Clutch SignifyThis achievement took a few days to drop for me, but it did eventually. I want to note that in my in game Gears 5 Stats Vasgar is not listed in my "mastered maps", even though I have the achievement and it is a launch map that you need to master. The in game tracker and the achievement tracker are different.

    Waynimus@BradLeafsFan9 or anyone else, can someone please provide some clarity on this achievement?

    This guide is slightly outdated and muddled now due to an update a year or so back.

    The issue is that the guide here references Horde characters for example and levelling them to 15. The update split characters away from their class, so if I am going for Seriously at the moment, I kind of have to guess what class JD, Kait, Del, etc. would have been.

    I assume (hope) the achievement is still obtainable.

    TuftyAlx312does this have to be done in one season? can get general and not do the other requirements and it still keep the progress?

    ASpartan 0506Can confirm, jingle Juvies DOES count towards seriously chapter 1, it DOES count for seriously chapter 2, AND the Master Horde and Escape maps from operation 4 (haven't tried an operation 2 or 3 map yet)

    Edit: I finally received my progress for Jingle Juvies, so it does count for all achievements requiring Horde Mastery so far
