    In order to upgrade skills (or anything in your load out, for that matter) you need “raw Aetherium crystals”. In order to get these, you need to reach round milestones (survive to 10/15/etc...). I’m sure there’s other ways, like the trial rewards and such, but this is the most consistent way to get them. You get one for each milestone per game.

    The first upgrade is 1 Crystal, with the second being 2 and the 3rd being 3, respectively. Achievement should pop after upgrading a skill (in my case I upgraded my Juggernog perk) to level 3.

    If you downvote, please let me know what I can do to fix the guide! Happy hunting!

    Divine Fear@robscout, are you playing locally or online? You have to be connected to the servers to unlock the achievements. It’s weird that DOA achievements are working for you but the other ones aren’t.

    Burty JrI’m doing this during the zombies free access week and nothing is unlocking. Upgraded the Juggernog to Tier III and all. Definitely connected online and linked up to my Activision account. Guess you have to own the full game.

    heya guys

    i made a video on how to get socket to me & six pack at the same time :)

    to start with you must get to level 51 so just play some zombies or multiplayer and come back to this achievement when your level 51

    now what you need to do is grind for crystals
    the crystals are the purple crystals awarded at the end of a game
    to get the crystals i used 3 methods

    method 1

    get to round 11 , call an extraction then just fail the extraction ... this usually gives you just the 1 crystal but sometimes thats all you need

    method 2

    get to round 11, call the extraction and make sure you complete the extraction (completing the extraction gives you more crystals but you do need to turn the power on first)

    method 3

    same as method 2 but get to round 16 instead

    you can extract every 5 rounds but obviously it takes longer and just gets harder

    the weapons i use are the knife and the shotgun that is near the downed plane

    once you have enough crystals you can upgrade your perk skills in the loadout section under the skills menu (each perk has 3 upgrades)
