    There are two ways to do this.

    1) Play through with your character and complete the 3 small tournies to unlock the 20 rounders. Then play the 20 rounders to the bitter end and the achievement is yours. I recommend using a very low level character (I was a level 19 Hunter) as the host because the AI will match whatever level the host is, not one more or one less, and then have your level 50 friends join your game and everyone will get this achievement. Even IF they don't have the smaller tournaments done. I can confirm this works, EVEN IF YOU DROP OUT, the only person that has to remain constant is the host.

    2) Find a game on Xbox Live that is close to being completed. Jump in their game and complete the game. They can even be on the second to last wave of round 20 when you join. As long as you are playing when the 5th wave of the 20th round is completed you will get the achievement.

    MasterTimosSomeone should flag this DLC as buggy since i did not receive this achievement after completing the whole 100 waves on an xbox live session with 3 friends last night (they all received the achievement). Same thing happened to me on the Angelic Ruins coliseum about a year ago but managed to pop that one a week ago. Please note that in both situations that the achievement glitched on me, I was the host and it was done on xbox one through backwards compatibility. Angelic Ruins did pop with the same conditions though.

    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

    The easiest way I have found to do this will require you teaming up with at least two more people whom have characters at level 50.

    The best thing I've found to do is for the host to be a level 5 (you could be lower as well) character and your friends bring in a level 50 character or the highest level character that they have.

    The game scales the enemies to the host so if the host is level 5, then all the enemies will be level 5 making it easier on you because your friends are higher up than you.

    The main thing is for the level 5 character to stay out of harms way for the most part. I'd suggest keeping one of your friends close that way if you get downed they can easily heal you.

    I'm using the Siren so if I get in a bad spot, I can phase out and run to a safer spot, hence the reason I suggest being level 5. All in all each arena should take you around 1-5 hours to complete. Hope this helps, good luck.

    BilkokuyaWhile the advice is sound - that you want to use a low level character to help the team, there are two sides to this:
    - A level 5 character is no use to the team, so there is no point in reviving them. Getting a friend to stay online while they'd normally watch a TV show can help as there are no penalties to the team for your level 5 going to the penalty box. Don't waste time reviving when you could be completing the waves.

    - A level X-5 (where X is your level) character will give you all enough of a challenge that it makes it feel like a proper achievement, while also allowing the lower-level player to actually participate in the challenge. Obviously the downside to this is that it will take longer, and you will need to revive the low-level unlike when using a level 5.

    But a good guide - the siren is definitely a good class to use.
