The easiest way to complete all the campaign on insane, is on coop mode, the person who wants to get the achievement needs to play on insane, your partner can play on any difficulty(i recommend casual for obvious reasons).
Basically the one on insane, must be hiding and avoiding all the combat as possible, while the other one will be doing all the work.
The difficulty can be selected individually.
Note: "this method can be done in split screen"

KontoGR i m trying solo, i m in ch. 3:3. THIS GAME IS THE MOST DIFFICULT GEARS EVER. the friendly bots are shooting the walls and they CONSTANTLY follow you, that means you can't hide behind because the enemy is gonna push up. the juvies are fast as bolts, they dodging and they are 2 hits death. FUCK ME I'M STUCK!!!!!

Blema57 but the person who want the achievement too on easy on coop can't get the insane achievement?

nate 1528 Can you do this strategy in local split screen with two controllers?
Posted by nate 1528 on 08 Oct 16 at 18:38
Lofty @Blema57 you have to do the campaign twice for both people to get achievement

yes, i did it in split screen.

OnTheSeshhLad thumbs up for finding an easier way to beat insane but longer way for both players to get the achievement! second play through you both can look for collectables and other achievements to knock out! smile
Posted by OnTheSeshhLad on 09 Oct 16 at 00:18
MikeProcurator Honestly its probably not longer, the amount of time you waste dying at hard checkpoints could be way more than beating it 2x on easy

forkbomb @KontoGR: that section of chapter 3.3 was tough on insane difficulty, solo. here's what i did to get past it:

weapons: custom lancer, boom shot, frag grenades.

strategy: fight the first wave of enemies from the second floor, with one of your AI teammates on the turret. right at the start, lob a grenade at the large rock wall cover nearest to you (in the center) to reduce the spots where enemies can hide. kill all but one or two enemies, and then go downstairs. kill the remaining enemies from ground level and then as quickly as possible, before the horn sounds to warn the juvies are coming, run in the "opposite" direction; to the spot from where you entered this whole area in the first place. you will go down some stairs, which serve as a choke point for the juvies. plant some grenades on the stairs, use your boom shot, and use your lancer’s chainsaw to kill all the juvies. it will take awhile; they keep coming in waves of one or two. when they’ve stopped you should be able to go back to the building and kill off any remaining enemies. hopefully your AI teammates have survived and helped out.

good luck.

CypressSmurf If anyone wants to do this, add me.

GT: CypressSmurf.

Honestly, I just rather have someone to play this game with, like a legit co-op partner. We can do it this way or just both play on insane from the get go. Doesn't matter to me. I want to enjoy the game and get most of the achievements. So hit me up if you want to everything together.

IOnEI Falcon What is the motorcycle section like doing it splitscreen with one player?
Posted by IOnEI Falcon on 11 Oct 16 at 02:06
I NVIII I @forkbomb I started doing that strat and came here hoping to find something along the lines of what I was doing.
Posted by I NVIII I on 11 Oct 16 at 03:48
LLboxed Just a heads up: Stuck on the Motorcycle section right now doing it solo /w 2nd controller on casual. You don't only have to get through with your main guy on Insane but also the 2nd player on Casual; I guess it's possible since most of the stuff is scripted but that really takes the fun out of it.
Posted by LLboxed on 11 Oct 16 at 18:13
EmDeeGee Fuckers. They took the moronic Judgment route, and there's no DBNO on Insane Co-Op.
Posted by EmDeeGee on 11 Oct 16 at 19:36
Efinijon I figured I would try this but can't split screen by myself in that motor cycle section. I can't figure out a way to do it!!! This insane mode seems harder than the others.
Posted by Efinijon on 11 Oct 16 at 20:09
Triple Triad777 Basically for doing 3.3, use the gnasher against the juvies. Makes easy work of them, kills them with one shot. The key to doing this is not aiming, but instead hipfire it. Your more likely to hit them if your aiming in their general direction with hipfire than aiming with lt since the little bastards just hop around the whole time. I solo'd the entire thing insane, met some difficulty with brumak and a few other sections, mainly the fabricatior defence sections. Key to this is backing yourself into a well protected spot behind cover and setting up sentry guns, letting them do all the work. For the final boss, just use a to dodge his spikes. Also when you get the propeller, make sure you PRESS A AS SOON AS HE IS ABOUT TO HIT YOU once you get close to his legs, otherwise you will get shish-ki-bobed. Good luck!

Exactly how I did it except I chucked a grenade at the first wave of Juvies, then killed a few juvies on the ground floor inside, and then ran down the hill, before the next wave of enemies spawned.

Have fun with 3.4 as well laugh

That one was harder for me, but finally got past it.

hunterIV Are there any parts with split screen co-op that are very difficult to do managing two controllers?
Posted by hunterIV on 13 Oct 16 at 00:26
Gintama ZURA Wow, I wish I read this before I did it solo haha. Yeah this was by FAR the most difficult Gears on insane. The juvies alone made it just about impossible, especially 3-3. Oh. My. Fuck. I spent at least 2 hours of dying before I finally beat that last part where you have to defend yourself in that museum. 5-2 wave 2 took a while as well. Two snatchers at the same time was infuriating. I had trouble with the first Brumak as well, because my dumbass just went for all 4 power cores before taking out a single blister, so I had to take out all of his blisters with all of those damn enemies rushing me, which took me forever.
So, unless you want the challenge, I recommend saving yourself the anger and the headaches, and just doing it this way.
If doing solo, I recommend what Triple Triad777 said about using the Gnasher for juvies, and my own advice would be using the Hammerburst for mid to long range while peeking out of a wall, and if you're any good with the Boltok, I'd use that too. You get some nice quick shots in to normal drones, and only takes 5 shots to kill them, but when they've been toughened by Scions, they take 7 shots.
For 5-2, I highly recommend to not use the turret. It's just takes too long to kill an enemy when they're at every side, and can easily kill you. Just build some defenses and sentries (even though they die way too easily), and sit back and kill them as they get stuck trying to cross over the laser defenses. For the snatchers on wave 2, make sure to buy the Torque Bow immediately when they yell, "we've got 2 snatchers!" and try to kill the one on the right as quickly as possible, since he gets there first, making sure to hit his underbelly for maximum damage.
Yeah it's ridiculously hard overall, but definitely doable.

DutRank Motorcycle section took me about an hour solo split screen but it is definitely do-able.

count023 I can't pick the difficulty in the co op split screen method on a per player basis, it only lets me pick it once. How do I make player 2 be causal and palyer 1 be insane?
Posted by count023 on 17 Oct 16 at 02:18
DutRank When the game starts you have the option to change difficulties on player 2.
Posted by DutRank on 17 Oct 16 at 04:29
count023 No... I really don't.

Here's how it goes down.

Campaign -> Co-Op -> Local Splitscreen -> New -> Select Difficulty -> Game Starts.

It only shows the difficulty once, and it's game wide, it doesn't let me select a player 2's difficulty... Do I sign in my 2nd player as a guest or as a profile?

You have to do it once the game started, with the 2nd press start and change difficulty

Burburnator88 Is there any part on insane while playing with two controllers that is difficult to get through? I just want to see how it will be when I get to there and if there are any ways to make it through with no problem. The motorcycle part is the only one I can think of.

The SCHWARTZ 00 Doing this legit with my cousin, hoooooly fuck this is BRUTAL. I'm only on Act 2 and its already the hardest Insane Gears campaign by far. Took us 4 hours to get through the prologue and Act 1. I'm already wincing at the thought of the Swarmak fight and the circular room with the Juvies and Pouncers. cry

Here's how I did it solo, but I think it would work with 2 players. Spoiler tags in case you want to figure out a strategy on your own.

battleking88 Does anyone have any tips using the split-screen glitch for the round room in Act 3 Chapter 4? I can get to the second pouncer just fine with the player on Insane mode behind cover on the other side of the room, however they always seem to die shortly after the second pouncer shows up. I've tried planting grenades, running around, YouTube videos, etc, but the same thing keeps happening. Any help is greatly appreciated!

Anima Pura Finally found some time and completed the campaign on Insane with a mixture of solo and co-op chapters. I unlocked the Inconceivable difficulty and the campaign completion in the Xbox app is at 100%, but this achievement won't pop. Any ideas?
Posted by Anima Pura on 17 Oct 17 at 02:25
Anima Pura I did the final part of the final boss battle again, since I had left one of the load slots there. Did it first try (on Insane of course) and the achievement popped, the one for the completion on Hardcore popped too, so the stackable nature of the achievement isn't glitched.
Posted by Anima Pura on 01 Nov 17 at 14:15
DrShoe1976 I have just unlocked it using the same method as Anima Pura.

All chapters showing as Insane completed, Inconceivable available - no achievement.

Re-did the last Boss on Insane - after cinematic cutscene (watched it just to be sure), and whilst credits rolled - it unlocked.

Posted by Death Punch KO on 07 Jun 18 at 15:06
Death Punch KO Can confirm that if all chapters are completed on insane but you haven't gotten the achievement, it will pop if you replay the final boss on insane. Also, it doesn't have to be loaded up from a previous save slot.
