    Find someone who already has this achievement and invite them to a multiplayer game (MULTIPLAYER -> Custom Match). The achievement unlocks as soon as the match ends.

    When you first start the game, you'll be at the start screen (the Brütal Legend vinyl record album sleeve). To get into the game's main menu selections, press the Start button cn_start.
    - Navigate right using the Left Stick (LS) cn_LSr or d-Pad cn_right until you reach MULTIPLAYER and press cn_A
    - This can be done in Matchmaking or Custom Match. Given the fact that the online multiplayer in this game is dead, we'll be inviting a friend that we know has this viral achievement.
    - Highlight Custom Match and press cn_A
    - We can now invite another player and change some of the match settings if needed.
    - You can change the lobby permissions (Anyone Can Join, Friends Can Join, or Invite Only). The default setting is Invite Only.
    - Press the Y button cn_Y to invite your friend and this will bring up your Xbox 360 friend list.
    - Wait for your friend to join (very important).
    - Once your friend is in the lobby, press the Start button cn_start to start the match.
    - The fastest way to end the match is to have the other player press the Start button cn_start and choose Surrender.
    - The achievement unlocks as soon as the match ends.

    It might also be a good idea to set the Map to anything that is included as part of the base game as not all players have the DLC. With that said, all of the game's DLC is available for free on the Xbox 360 Marketplace (including The Love Giver Guitar).

    Base game maps:
    - Battered Bluff
    - The Bleeding Coast
    - Doom's Mire
    - Bladewoode
    - Dry Ice Quarry
    - Pleasure Gardens
    - Feeding Area

    Hammer of Infinite Fate DLC maps:
    - Coiled Remains
    - Crucible of the Titans
    - Altar of Blood
    - The Amplified Cliffs

    Tears of the Hextadon DLC maps:
    - Circle of Tears
    - Death's Fjord

    DLC purchase/download/install links:
    - Hammer of Infinite Fate DLC (install on Xbox One)
    - Tears of the Hextadon DLC (install on Xbox One)
    - The Love Giver Guitar DLC (install on Xbox One)

    Note: If you are playing Brütal Legend on your Xbox One console, open the Xbox Guide by pressing the View button cn_back and Menu cn_start button at the same time. You need to do this to accept and/or send game invites when playing an Xbox 360 game on Xbox One.

    ModernQuasar8And maybe the multiplayer ones can’t find anyone

    It would be best to have messaged me over Xbox Live as I see those messages sooner. And yes, I can help you with the viral achievement at the very least. My Gamertag is Lightsup55 (all lowercase).

    My suggestion for the multiplayer versus is to either join an existing session or create your own (don't forget about setting your time zone too). There is a session already up for later this week if you can make it. You'll be able to pass the viral off to other players in that session as long as you have it.

    - TA Site Settings (look under "Regional Settings" for "Your time zone")
    - Existing sessions for Brütal Legend (calendar view; be sure to set your time zone first)
    - Create a session for Brütal Legend

    lightsup55Yes, but it is best to message me on Xbox Live so that I see the message sooner.

    This achievement is viral, while rare at first, it will spread faster over time. Best chances of getting this one are by getting to play with someone you know who owns this achievement, or by playing online matches until you acquire it.

    To those who own this achievement, spread it on so it will not leave others searching in vain.

    Just for clarification this achievements is earned in Multiplayer Matches. It can be earned in Ranked or Custom matches. A custom match can be as large as 4v4. Once the match is completed if any one player has this achievement all other players on both teams will unlock it.

    Any map can be used and the teams do not have to be balanced. In order to make this as quick as possible get all players (up to 8) in to a game, once the match has started the Host can surrender for the whole team. This will give one win to the opposite team and all players unlock the viral achievement.
