    The enemies in the arenas scale to the host's level.

    Easiet way -

    Get a level 10 character to host the game, and 3 other level 50 characters as co-op partners (one level 50 is enough, but you will go through it faster with more people) You will be able to breeze through the levels without any trouble.

    its 5 rounds, each with 5 waves. so it will take while. so make sure you have around an hour in your hand, because you cant quit in the middle of an arena.

    If you Join some one else's game half way through, you can still get the achievement, as long as you are there at round 5, wave 5. (so if you lag out, just join back in, it wont effect the achievement)

    You get 1 skill point for finishing all 3 small arenas in play thorough 1, and another for finishing them in play through 2.

    (you have to be atleast a 10/have fast travel to access the mad moxi dlc)

    exxonici did the first arena, hell burbia like two weeks ago with a partner. last night i hosted a game with the same character and finished the gully and angelic ruins, but with an other guy. he said he once tried hell burbia, but did not finish it.
    after finishing the two arenas i was missing, he got the achievement the same time as i did, though he had only finished two of them. maybe it was because of me being the host and having the quest ready.

    Saw3d 0ffRound 4 of the The Gully glitched on me, where no enemies spawned. It worked fine the next time I played.

    If this happens to you on any round of any arena, try getting your characters killed by standing next to the barrels and shooting them, and throwing grenades. This might reset it for you.

    Otherwise you'll have to just playthrough that challenge from the start again.

    I did this with two controllers. The host account was a level 10 and the main account that I wanted the achievement on was joined as player 2, level 40.

    I just let my low lvl account die while the higher account killed all of the enemies. It took a while, maybe 40 minutes per arena, but it worked.

    If you want to solo this achievement I recommend you equip yourself with some ammo and health regeneration mods. I played through this with a level 37 Hunter carrying the Sniper, Gunslinger and Survivor mods. Every class has at least one mod that will regenerate some type of ammo and health.
    You can switch between mods quickly as needed depending on circumstances. Since you're playing solo, bringing up your inventory will pause the action so switching mods does not have to be a frantic task.

    The health regen is important for the Vampire waves where you lose health over time. My Survivor health regen balanced the Vampire health drain so I didn't have to rush around looking for kills.

    By bringing the right mods to Underdome you aren't so dependent on the ammo and health drops between waves. I didn't need to pick up a single drop.

    If you don't have the mods you want, you can easily farm for them by starting the game at the Underdome, and do a quick check at the Medical vending machine, You can exit, check and re-enter very quickly. I got the mods I needed in about 20 minutes but remember it's random.

    Another consideration is adjusting your skill tree for this type of play. Being spec'd for looting is no help in the Underdome so spend a little money to optimize for health, ammo and damage.

    Hope this helps. :)

    The way I did these achievements was very simple. Have your main character to be a high level character from level 50 - 69 if you have the dlcs. Using a seperate profile/gamertag train up a character through the story till they can teleport to 'The Underdome' this'll be around level 10 maybe lower. Then go into a split screen game with your low level account as player 1, use your main higher level account as player 2, the lowest the enemies can be is level 12. Play through the small tournaments, then move on to the big ones, this will still take a fair amount of time, but with your high level character things should be a breeze. Good Luck
