    Did this on insane with more health and more lethal turned off, classes a blades master, brawler and marksman equipped with 2 lvl 6 epic score boosts and 1 lvl 4 epic score boost
    you get bonuses on time, kills, head shot kills, executions and marked enemies. make sure you collect cog tags as well
    for our run we didn't have to many execution kills but focused on marking and head shot's. As brawler just looking for group kills and juvie's. Try to clean out rooms as fast as possible and stay ahead of the venom. our run ended with a -22. You can keep track of your run by seeing your time with LB. Hope this helps and happy hunting

    High Voltage lxThanks for the guide, just wanted to point a few things out:

    1- Class preference in escape varies from one map to another. It depends on which weapons are available in the map. For example a map rich in Longshots/Markzas (such as Ice Queen or Lethal Engagements) is perfect for Marksman. And you would definitely want an Infiltrator in your team in a map full of Gnashers/Overkills (Such as The Malfunction or The Gauntlet). However, Marksman becomes useless in some other Hives like The Warren, same with Infiltrator it's useless in a map like Melee Brawl. This goes for all classes.

    Watch out though, some classes are hardly useful/almost useless in any given Hive, so it's better to avoid these (Demolitions - Pilot - Veteran - Mechanic - Architect - Slugger - Striker) unless you need to level them up.

    2- Try not to die at all, each death on your team deducts 5 minutes from the score.

    3- Playing on Master difficulty gives a higher score, so you can comfortably hit you target & maintain it.

    I'm happy to help with this achievement, send me a message on Xbox if you need it.

    Featured escape maps change every Tuesday, so I can't give much specific advice. I recommend going for this as soon as you can after it changes. That gives you the best chance of being matched with good players. You should play the map on beginner a few times to learn the path and weapon drops, then jump into the inconceivable queue. As long as you stay ahead of the venom on inconceivable, you should do fine for time. Pick up the cog tags to do even better.

    I spent about 10 minutes in the hive and got a time of negative 27 minutes. Gold for the map I did was negative 15 minutes. Performing kills, executions, headshots, etc. earns you extra time. Score cards and modifiers increase the amount of time added for each action.

    WolfheartSpell@FLeXAKuMA, I was dead when my friends made it out and my achievement popped once we returned to the menu.

    AradorJust did this on The Gauntlet with myself as Anchor, a Marksman and Infiltrator with More Lethal and Bastions turned off and everything else on making it only Insane. End time was -1 and Gold requires 7 or less so now is a good time to get this Achievement, definitely recommend Classes with Bleeding Effects
