With the latest Gears of War update (update 6), you can get this achievement easily by using "Social Xbox Live". You do not have to do it in a ranked match and with Social Xbox Live, the game will automatically start with Bots if it does not match you to enough or any players. Social Annex takes away the hassle of finding other players who actually play Annex.

Simply select this option in the drop down in Multiplayer and choose Annex in the Game Type drop down. From here start your matchmaking and with any luck you will get Bot players or only 1 or 2 human players. Once the game starts, capture the ring location (area on map you have to defend). This ring will have a certain score amount which will deplete then a new ring will appear elsewhere on the map; 3 rings on each map. Get your teams score up to 180 to win the round. Win two rounds and your team will win the match.

Do this on all 8 maps from the map packs to win the achievement. Unfortunately you don't get to choose the map but you will eventually cover them all since this game mode also includes the map packs in the playlist.

Bots are difficult in Social Annex but might be easier then doing it with expert human players.

Tyro Station

Gold Rush
Fuel Station

NOTE: If playing with other players you will get the full experience that you would in Ranked. If playing only against bots you will only get a certain amount for winning. You ALSO REQUIRE ALL MAP PACKS to play this mode.

EDIT (credit to guycarb): Rotation has changed yet again, the new list is as follows (will pick a random start point on creation):
01 Grind Yard
02 Security
03 Memorial
04 Sanctuary
05 Jacinto
06 Ruins
07 * Gold Rush
08 Under Hill
09 Way Station
10 Pavilion
11 * Canals
12 Blood Drive
13 Day One
14 Avalanche
15 * Flood
16 * Mansion
17 War Machine
18 * Gridlock
19 Fuel Depot
20 * Fuel Station
21 River
22 Courtyard
23 Allfathers Garden
24 Highway
25 * Subway
26 Nowhere
27 Stasis
28 Hail
29 * Tyro Station

This is NOT a boosting solution, it is a solution for players willing to do this solo it is not as bad as you think.

Search for Social Annex (you must have all DLC to do so) once you find a lobby it should be yourself and the rest are bots.

Maps Needed:
Tyro Station
Gold Rush
Fuel Station

If you do not get one of the 8 maps back and out and try again. Keep doing so until you get one of the 8. There is no consequence for leaving a match so keep doing backing out and searching until you get one of the maps.

If you do get one of the 8 maps try your best to win the match, play objective only,doing anything in order to win the match. It will be a fairly even match since everyone else besides you is a bot but it is really not hard, get in cover as much as you can, plant grenades, always have active reloads, etc.

Once you have won a match stay just to see what the next map is, if it is not one of the 8 back out, search until you get one you need, WIN. That's all there is to it.

Also keep track of the maps you have won on so you will know exactly what maps you need.
