    You must successfully complete each job type on their respective locations. Failure in the job mission does not count towards this achievement.


    After experimenting another booster and I determined the win conditions. You MUST meet these to clear the stage (you will get "Victory!" and not "Round Over" or "Failure". If you do not get Victory you did not clear the map successfully).

    Containment: You must clear all the ghosts. The number of ghosts to clear is determined by number of players times 5 plus 5. So for example with two players you need to capture 15 ghosts. It's best that both players equip the slime blower and tether the first 10 ghosts into the traps. (Edit: I'm getting some messages that some people 4 with players only need 20 ghosts. I'll do some experimenting to verify.)

    Containment maps: reading room, basement stacks, twisted stacks, streets, office, rooftops, Rotunda, Mayan, Egypt, cemetery, altar, and Lost Island.

    Destruction: You must destroy EVERY spawning totem. Once the last one clears the round will end. Time running out means you failed.

    Destruction maps: reading room, office, Rotunda, Mayan, cemetery, and Lost Island.

    Protection: You must allow all three PKE towers to extend (100%).

    Protection maps: streets, office, rooftops, Rotunda, Egypt, and cemetery.

    Slime Dunk: Earn first place over all.

    Slime dunk maps: basement stacks, twisted stacks, rooftops, Egypt, altar, and Lost Island.

    Survival: Clear all 10 waves of ghosts/ghouls/baddies. The icon in the upper left corner of your screen displayed the previously completed wave. Remember, with later waves you want to go after the big guys (i.e. golems). They spawn the little creatures. Destroy the golem and all its spawnlings go away too.

    Survival maps: reading room, basement stacks, twisted stacks, streets, office, rooftops, Rotunda, Mayan, Egypt, cemetery, altar, and Lost Island

    Thief: You need at least ONE artifact to remain when time expires.

    Thieves maps: reading room, basement stacks, twisted stacks, streets, Mayan, and altar.

    dropK1CK ninJAIt is still hit or miss. Some can unlock it, others can't. And 985 is not the magic number.

    Brett Evans15Hey guys, I did choose my buddy is PaltryTunic7270 but I did it was so tough for me. He did on 1st Place and then I did on 2nd Place at the same time I guess. We did go to campaign yesterday and 2 days ago, and then today, we did go to campaign is Time Square for the first level on streets is Containment. He choose a slime and I choose a statis and finally, the first level on Containment is complete on victory and I got the achievement unlocked is Gozer's Most Wanted. I saw the achievement/trophy. I am so happy because I got one more achievement left is Payday!. I hope this works on this too I guess. Right? I got it finally I did it.

    MartyFSMThis finally unlocked for us halfway going through them for a second time on streets containment even though we already did this before.

    In other words don’t give up if it doesn’t unlock on your first go round. Just do them again and it will unlock at some point

    Here's some information I'd like to share with the TA community based on my experience with the multiplayer portion of this game.

    While going for the 'Gozer's Most Wanted' achievement, you should get this achievement along the way:
    Ghostbusters: The Video GameOverachieverThe Overachiever achievement in Ghostbusters: The Video Game worth 97 pointsGet over $2,500,000 in Xbox LIVE, over 30 post-job awards, 50 jobs completed.

    You don't need to try for 'Overachiever', it'll come naturally, but do keep track of each unique post-job award you acquire, so you know when you reach 30.

    Key Points
    - Always play 'Ranked' matches.
    - 'Instant Action' will work for these.
    - The difficulty scales based on the number of players you have in the match. Complete the matches with the minimum of 2 players, you and one other person, to ensure easier victories.
    - You need to see 'VICTORY' at the end of a match, for it to count towards your achievement progression.
    - It does not matter who the host is. As long as the job ends in a 'Victory' and its 'Ranked, then it'll count towards your progression.

    Below is a link to a checklist I've created, to help you track your progression for 'Gozer's Most Wanted'.

    Good Luck.

    This solution is all about tips to actually complete the jobs when going for Gozer's Most Wanted.

    After playing way too many games with randoms (and even some who have played extensively), I have found that a lot of people have virtually no idea what they're doing when it comes to actually completing the jobs. So, with that said, I've made up a list of tips covering most of the problems I've seen in all of the games I've played.

    1) When playing Containment, Slime Dunking (tethering) is almost a necessity in order to capture the ghosts in a timely fashion.

    2) If you see someone with a tethered ghost, DO NOT shoot the ghost! It destroys the tether and costs the team a lot of valuable time.

    2) On Destruction levels, you should never have to throw your trap out or even capture/kill a ghost. These jobs are all about taking out the spawn totems as fast as possible. When a spawn totem is destroyed, all of the ghosts that came out of it are destroyed as well.

    3) On Destruction levels, the spawn totems appear in pretty much the same pattern every time, so if you don't get through them, just keep trying with another competent player and you'll knock these out in no time.

    4) Another Destruction attention to your weapon choices. The Stasis Beam (blue) is amazing up close and can take out a green spawn totem in two shots. The...yellow blaster, what you want to use for the spawn totems that are in the distance and can be destroyed in about five or six shots.
    Slime is virtually useless, but can be extremely useful in one instance: If a ghost is sitting on the spawn totem where you can't damage the totem, quickly switch to your slime, tether the ghost, then just tether it away from the nest somewhere like the ground. This will not only pull the ghost off of the spawn totem, but will daze them you plenty of time to switch back to your other packs to take out the nest.

    The Proton Accelerator is badass on Destruction levels as well. This thing can just shred through the spawn totems in no time. You only have it for a limited time, so make the most of it.

    5) On Survival levels, there's no time limit, nor are there any unlimited spawning ghosts, so take your time, know the ghosts' weaknesses, and you'll get through these without much of a problem. Slime dunk if you can. When you have to fight the big bosses, they're fairly easy to get away from when fighting them. Usually they'll come up to you, pause, then lunge at you. When they do this, either run right past them, or just hit the dodge button and jump away to the side. Usually the only things that give players fits are the little hoards of candlestick crawlers.

    6) Thief levels are some of the easiest to do since there's a time limit and you only have to have 1 remaining when time runs out. You do that and you're golden.

    7) Protection levels can seem like a nightmare at times, especially on the 3rd tower, but they can be fairly manageable if you can get one person to lure the main monster away from the tower and the other stays nearby to pick off any of the little baddies it sends out. The little guys will always go for the tower. The main monster will go for the tower as well, but can be lured away. What you don't want to do is have all of your players waiting at the tower or you're just asking to lose because not only will you have the little guys there, but the main monster as well.

    8) On the Cemetery Protection level, it seems that if you get the 3rd tower to appear at the top of the hill, the little ghosts/skulls the boss shoots out can get under the map somehow and continuously attack the tower. If this happens, just keep looking at the ground around it and the lock-on signal will appear. Grab it and smash it quickly!
    If you can manage to have any of the Stasis Beam (blue) when the 3rd round comes up, especially on the Cemetery level, use the Stasis Stream to freeze the huge boss and it should be a breeze finishing up the level.

    9) Pay attention to when your partners go down and get them up ASAP, especially on the levels with a time limit. If it's a Survival level, depending on your situation, you may be able to just let them time out and return. Sometimes it's safer to run than to go dive into whatever mess just took out your teammate.

    10) Some jobs are easier with two people rather than a group, but this mostly depends on the skill of the players in the group or the level. It's hard to get a group of randoms that know what they're doing, so maybe doing most of these with another skilled player is all you need to do.

    Hope this helps some.:)
