    Just play any multiplayer match on each of dark corners map pack maps. This can be done online, and also offline with two controllers. Just play a match against another controller offline and choose only 1 round per match. This way, you'll only need to play 7 rounds in total.

    These are the maps in alphabetical order:

    Allfathers Garden, Highway, Memorial, Nowhere, Sanctuary, War Machine, Way Station.

    [edit] BeRSeRk117 cleverly pointed out you can also kill yourself being the second controller with a boomshot or grenades picked up from the map. This way, you don't have to run across the map to find the other player, but only half way (on most maps). The first controller will still win. This way it'll take even less time.

    If you win everyone of these seven games (This is why i recommend going against a second controller), this will also net you:

    KennyannydennyYou can't. You need to get the boomshot or grenades from the map to suicide. But on most maps running to those weapons, it's not as far as running to the other player. I'll change the solution to make this clearer.

    For this achievement you need to play a match on each of the 7 new maps from the Dark Corners DLC.

    Here's a list of the 7 maps you need to play a game on for the achievement, use it to keep track of which maps you play on;
    • Allfathers Garden
    • Highway
    • Memorial
    • Nowhere
    • Sanctuary
    • War Machine
    • Way Station

    Now the achievement is left entirely open as this can be obtained by playing a match in any mode, so while you have the option of playing online in a ranked/social match and working toward this achievement casually you can also choose to get this achievement out the way by playing a local game with 2 controllers.

    The quickest way to get this achievement is to set up a local game, set the game type to Warzone, set the round limit to 1 and work your way through the maps while killing the second player, this way you have absolutely no threat to contend with as the second player won't do anything unless you make it.

    You can use this method any way that you want, you can set up a match with you facing off against a team of bots if you want, it's entirely up to you, I've just outlined the easiest and fastest method that I know of.

    Using this method will also net you; Did Not Go Gentle in Gears of War 2 at the same time, that achievement requires you to win on each of these maps.
