    Pretty straight forward. Complete Waves 1 through 10 on each of the 5 Flashback maps, which are the following:

    Canals
    Gridlock
    Mansion
    Subway
    Tyro Station

    I tried soloing it, but it was difficult. I completed all the waves with just 1 other person so very doable with 2 people. Just make sure you take advantage of the Boomshields as you get closer to Wave 10.

    Great solutions.

    I also found that playing these solo worked. What I did was to have a guest on a second controller. I hid the other character somewhere safe and when I was struck down, I was able to revive or just play through.

    Most of the enemies avoid the inactive one anyway and I was able to save a lot of time from restarts.

    I got this achievement today, and to be honest... it's way easier than it looks alone... i solo'ed all the levels... Here's my strategy on doing it alone:

    The first 4 waves should be very EASY to complete by yourself, If you're really good at Gears of War 2 it'll only be around wave 7 that you (might) wipe. Starting from the 5th or 6th wave, there will be grinders... kill these, get their weapon and shoot everyone into pieces... Multiple grinders will come in 1 wave according to wich wave you are on.

    I replaced the shotgun by a torque bow, because this does alot of damage as well and if you aim well you can headshot the big guys with 1 arrow.

    For the rest of the mobs i used my normal chainsaw gun... fast reloading gives damage bonuses and all types of Horde will go down without even reloading...

    Good luck y'all!
