As a Heavy, add 50 ammo for launchers or Heavy Weapons in a Weapons Locker in one Horde match

You will get this naturally when playing as a Heavy, as long as you use Weapons Lockers. It doesn't take long to add 50 ammo to the Mulcher and Tri-Shot. However you can solo it quickly.

Start a Private Horde match on wave 41 on Casual. Build two Weapons Lockers and three Sentries, then upgrade the Weapons Lockers to level 2. Empty your Boomshot and place it on the Weapons Locker. If you have enough power buy another Boomshot, empty it and place it on the Weapons Locker, otherwise go get yourself killed. Repeat until the Weapons Lockers are full. Take the Boomshot you stored first, empty it and replace it then take the next one and do the same. Do not worry if you die, just carry on. Depending on the Class Skills you picked you will need to do this up to another 4 times. The achievement will unlock as soon as the 50th ammo is added to a Boomshot.
ClevelandFan This is essentially how I did this last night and is definitely the quickest way to get this achievement (starting on Wave 41, emptying out your boomshot, then getting killed). Good solution.

Adam Roberts Definitely the best way to get the achievement.
I will add I had to quit the match to get it after it wouldn't unlock during the match.

PlanetNoobies All heavies in the game will get this if one of them does, tested it last night.My buddy used the lockers I didn't but the achievement popped for all.

ClaytThaGreat Why bother to buy the sentries?

HolyHalfDead The sentries help you kill enemies, giving you power to buy more Boomshots, which you can only do once the Fabricator is level 2. Or you could just build 4 weapon lockers and keep killing yourself to get more Boomshots.

BertieHoth What’s the best difficulty to do this on? Thanks!
Posted by BertieHoth on 12 May 18 at 18:45
HolyHalfDead It works well on Casual. I have added that into the solution.

havocofsmeg Ok, think I'm missing something here, put 5-6 Salvo's with maxed out ammo (20 rounds) and a Tri-Shot with 140 rounds into a weapons locker, but no achievement, quit the game, still no achievement. Am I doing something wrong?
Posted by havocofsmeg on 16 Jul 18 at 13:19
HolyHalfDead You need to empty the weapons before putting them on the weapons locker. For the Salvo and Tri-Shot, you need to to leave at least one round in them.
Posted by HolyHalfDead on 16 Jul 18 at 15:06
havocofsmeg So if I found a tri shot, Just empty out a few rounds, e.g anything between 1 & 49, then put the in the locker? NB doing this through playing horde normally.
Posted by havocofsmeg on 16 Jul 18 at 18:05
HolyHalfDead Yes. Just do that a couple of times, and the achievement should unlock.
