This section of the walkthrough will cover the Multiplayer achievements contained within the main game.
So now we’re done with Campaign Mode, and it’s time to move on to those tasty multiplayer achievements. And just so you know, yes, people still play this game online. Obviously, you can get all of the multiplayer achievements by participating in online public matches and playing normally, so we won’t be talking about that here. What we will be talking about here is the fastest and most efficient way to boost these achievements. Keep in mind that all of these achievements must be done in Ranked public matches. Okay, move out, soldier!
The first thing you want to do is round up some boosting buddies, or join and/or create some boosting session here on TrueAchievements. Once you have that squared away, we'll start with some easy ones. Load up any type of match you choose and play it to completion, and be sure to finish the match with the highest points of all the players. Try to be the host for as many matches as possible because there’s an achievement for that. When the match is complete, you’ll unlock the following two achievements:
Next load up a match of every game type that you haven’t played yet, play it to completion, and be the match winner or on the winning team. The match types you need to play are: Warzone, Execution, and Assassination. When you've completed and won a match of all three types, you’ll unlock:
Mix It Up
Win a ranked match in every versus game type
Continue playing (and winning) whatever match type you wish until you’ve cycled through all the maps. The maps you need to play on are: Canals, Clocktower, Escalation, Fuel Depot, Gridlock, Mansion, Mausoleum, Rooftops, Tyro Station, and War Machine. Once you've completed, and won, a match on every map you’ll unlock:
If you've been winning all the matches so far, then you've already unlocked:
If you haven’t, then play 10 matches of whatever you like and win all of them in a row without losing a single round.
If you have hosted and completed 50 matches by this point, then you have already unlocked:
If you haven’t, then you will soon, so don’t worry. Now we’re going to start on all of those “kill” achievements. It’s going to take a while, so go take a pee and grab a drink and a snack. You can do these achievements in any order you want, and they are all done the same way, so don’t feel compelled to do them in the order I have them listed. I recommend playing all of the following matches in Execution or Warzone match types. Do not play any of the matches in Annex mode, as your kills may, or may not, count. Also keep in mind that all of the following achievements can be a bit glitchy and may, or may not, unlock at exactly 100 kills. If they don't unlock at 100, don't worry. They are not broken, and they will unlock eventually, so just keep killing until the game decides that you've done enough.
Start loading up ranked matches on the Fuel Depot map, grab the Longshot, and start shooting your boosting buddies in the head. When you’ve gotten 100 headshot kills with the Longshot, you’ll unlock both of the following achievements:
Next start loading up ranked matches on the Fuel Depot map and grab the Hammer of Dawn. Have everyone else group up close together and unleash hell on all of them at once. When you've killed 100 people with the HoD, you’ll unlock:
Don't Hurt 'Em
Kill 100 enemies in ranked matches with the Hammer of Dawn
Now start loading up matches on the Canals map and grab the Torque Bow. Be sure to have everyone stand far enough apart that the resulting explosion only kills the person you shot at. Kills are a bit glitchy in this game and a collateral explosion kill may not count as a Torque Bow kill. When you’ve gotten 100 kills with the weapon you’ll unlock:
Kill 100 enemies in ranked matches with the Torque Bow
Next let’s load up Execution matches on any map you like. Down the other players with melee attacks and then finish them off with your Snub Pistol. Alternatively you can shoot them in the face 3 to 5 times until you get a headshot. Unfortunately, you cannot combine this achievement with the one for executions, so make sure you are far enough away that the kill does not register as an execution. When you’ve gotten 100 kills with your pistol, you’ll unlock:
Kill 100 enemies in ranked matches with a pistol
Now do the same thing you just did for the last achievement, except make sure you are up close to the downed player and then shoot them in the head with your pistol. When you've gotten 100 executions, you’ll unlock:
Now do the same thing again that you've done for the last two achievements, except run up and kill the downed player with a curb stomp. When you've done 100 of them, you’ll unlock:
Kill 100 enemies in ranked matches with the curb stomp
For the next one, load up ranked matches on the Escalation map and start grabbing grenades. Use them to grenade tag the other players. Make sure players are standing far enough apart that the explosion does not kill surrounding players. You must tag the players individually. When you've killed 100 people in this manner, you’ll unlock:
Next start loading up ranked matches on the Gridlock map and grab the Boomshot. Have everyone group up close together and unleash on them. When you've killed 100 people with the Boomshot, you’ll unlock:
Now start loading ranked matches on any map you want and start going to town on everyone with your Lancer’s chainsaw. When you've gotten 100 chainsaw kills, you’ll unlock:
Finally, play team-based ranked matches on any map. Have the players on the opposite am down your teammates, and then you revive them. When you've revived 100 teammates, you’ll unlock:
Now for the biggie.
This is the famous, or infamous, as the case may be, achievement called “Seriously…”. Here are some things you need to keep in mind:
You need to get 10,000 kills (At least. We’ll get to that)
All the kills need to be in Ranked public matches.
Kills in Annex mode DO NOT count.
This achievement is glitched.
Some people have reported getting this achievement in as little as 9,500 kills, while other have reported the achievement not unlocking until 18,000 kills. I would suggest that to boost this achievement you play ranked matches with boosting buddies on the Raven Down map, as it’s the smallest. Just keep at it and keep racking up kills. The achievement is glitched, but it is in no way unobtainable. You’ll get it eventually. When the game finally decides that you've killed enough people, you’ll unlock the most brutal achievement of the game:
Well done, and a huge congratulations to you on completing Gears of War. You are now a member of the few, the proud, the Gears! Thanks for using the Gears of War walkthrough here on TrueAchievements.
