    Pretty Simple from the main menu go to training ground. Here you are teamed up with bots againts a team of bots and have to complete 5 scenarios. The scenarios are The Basics (3-on-3 warzone,) Execution rules (5-on-5 execution,) Respawning (5-on-5 guardian,) Objective (5-on-5 annex) and Submission (5-on-5 submission.) Your team have to win each scenario so even if you die and your team win it will complete. These are also a good introduction to the new game types as well so give it a whirl before you jump into the real thing.

    TheBongoFuryWhat DemArms says. I did all 5 of the training maps, and when the "press start to leave the match I thought that was the go to leave the game. But indeed: The timer has to run out and you have to go back to the main menu. Otherwise it does not count.

    Hey0kaYou should definitely update your guide to mention that you have to sit through the countdown timer. I just spent half an hour going through them all only for the achievement not to pop.

    The training grounds have their own option in the main menu, and give you an intro to the online multiplayer by pitting you against bots with tips that pop up throughout the match. This is a good way to prepare for the online if you are new to the franchise.

    The main reason I'm posting this guide is because there were a couple things the other solutions left out that I felt a need to cover. First off, if you die before your bots get ready for a long wait most likely. Typically the bots engage each other in long range lancer warfare and things like that and don't finish each other off, dragging rounds out quite some time.

    Also, for your completed tutorial you have to stay until the countdown on the top of the screen reaches ZERO. Do not press pause and exit like the screen prompts you to, otherwise you will not get credit for completing that stage. Other than that, good luck against the bots and this should be an easy 10G.

    Fatal InfusionThe comment about waiting for the timer is crucial as I did not get credit for the first level, was unsure of if a check mark would show up or not. Glad I didn't waste my time doing all 5 and checked this first :)

    Not nearly as difficult as people are leading you to believe. Simply before you enter the training grounds switch the bot difficulty to casual and it will remain so. I did this for two different profiles and it didn't take me more then twenty minutes each time. When I did it for my main profile I even died on the third scenario and my team was still able to win the match.
