    To enter a chainsaw duel you need to attempt to chainsaw someone front on who also has a lancer equipped when you do this you will enter the duel then just rapidly tap the B button. Repeat 9 more times.

    A good way to do this is in a private match 1 on 1 vs. a second controller or a friend.

    Happy Dog CPHIdanST - it's super easy to activate a second controller! It tells you on the menu screen to press start to sign in a guest once you turn on your second controller.

    An easy way to get this achievement is to load up ACT 3: Chapter 3. If you progress through the level to the part where you first encounter razor hail and board the first train, the locust in the train will always chainsaw battle you! After you kill this locust, LOAD CHECKPOINT for an easy rinse and repeat!

    I had six of ten before starting this method and got the four done in ten minutes!

    XystraI always look for solutions that can be done without relying on other people or hardware, so this was the one I tried, and I thank you for posting it.
    I did have trouble getting it to work though, until I figured out you need to rev your chainsaw the instant you board the train car. then it worked.

    throwbackjWorked perfectly! A rip from when I tried, you’ll have to make sure that you get to the train before the locust can start shooting you, and mantle up closer to the left side of the entry way. After it really was a rinse and repeat!

    set up a private match with all bots off and invite 1 friend. put 10 rounds. now both of you have to have the lancer equipped and reving the chainsaw (hold B) while walking towards each other. when you enter the dual rapidly tap B. have your friend let you win 10 times and the achievement is yours.
