    Easily done solo.

    Follow the solution for I Made It All By Myself and create your own Escape map with just a starting chamber and an exit chamber. It doesn't need you to add any enemies, so you can have a simple 30 second run from spawn to Raven.

    Just run it five times each with each of Mac, Lahni and Keegan and voilà! The loading times are longer than the actual runs.

    EDIT: The tracker was very hit and miss before full launch. Even now (as at 23/9/19) there still seem to be periodic issues with progress tracking. Keep persevering - while it's better than it was in the early release period, achievement tracking is seemingly still less than perfect.

    DiegoCaldoJust to let you know, my tracking for this achievement only moves when I play with Marcus. I was stuck at 86% but after playing a escape game with him I have reached 96%.

    A fast way of getting this is to start by going to escape , then map sharing then search for maps with cn_X and search out the map I have made with the map ID 6BFWZ0 the map is called , who you gonna call. Each escape should only take 30 seconds plus load times. So just run to the escape 5 times each with Lahni and Keegan and Mac. Can be done solo or with other players.

    MiZ Dove OGThanks for creating this escape. EZ PZ for this achievement. Since like many other things in Gears 5, half the time these escapes aren't registering for the achievement so it's nice to have a way to re-do something so much easier. Much appreciated. I dont know why the negative votes but big thumbs up from me.

    This can be done on any difficulty, obviously beginner will be the easiest option.

    This can be done solo:

    Load up escape, go into map sharing and search for the map called Reinforcement Rush.
    This map is pretty straight forward, and you can beat it in about 2-3 minutes if you follow my guide below.

    Click on host game with map, Choose one of the three characters:
    Mac, Lahni, or Keegan.

    I choose to go in order so I started with Mac, finished the map five times, and if your achievement tracker is working, after finishing the map five times with one character it should be at 33%, second character 66% and so on.

    When you have chosen a character press cn_X to start the game.

    For some reason when you die and chose to restart the act, the only enemies that will spawn are the ones in front of the doors you have to go through, so:

    When you spawn don’t move and when the timer hits zero, the explosion will kill you, and choose to restart act after this.

    After spawning again:

    Go through the first door you have to open and go to the right supply room and pick up the boom shot.

    Open the next door and If you go straight you will see a group of 3 enemies use the boom shot and finish them off any way you want. Go through the door and repeat the last step, killing another group of 3 enemies and going through the door. Keep going straight and you will see the end of the level.

    FiveWizzAchievement progress is stuck for me. Can't get it to go up with either Lahni or Mac. Hopefully it rectifies

    FiveWizzAh thanks good to know that it sorts itself out. The guide here is good it's just a shame the achievements are so broken still.
