This achievement is not difficult, I did yesterday with my team on the 2nd attempt.
You need to know the melee combo that is very important to execute drones: press B, B again and hold B and the character will do an animation where it will kill the enemy even if it has more than half life.
Charachter we used are: Kat, Emile and Lahni.
You need level 4/5 cards to get it.
Kat is very important for the Ultimate, she uses a hologram to distract enemies and then skip parts.
Emile have bleeding damage melee
Lahni has high melee damage
The map where we did it is Hive.
Strategy: When you start and open the door you don't run, just walk very slowly otherwise the enemies will notice you, doing this you can kill the rejects and drones without problems.
Take the road to the left and continue to kill enemies with executions and melee combos in case they notice your presence.
As soon as you have killed everyone in this part there will be 3 supply rooms, one player will have to have the incendiary grenade, another will have the frag grenade and the other 2 flashbangs, if in case he only spawns a flashbang the player will have to take the ammo explosive box for have the second flashbang.
As soon as everyone is ready a player will have to go ahead and shoot on the drones and scion for aggro them, as soon as he's done he'll have to go back to the area where the 3 supply rooms are and wait for the scion to come, probably 2 or 3 drones will also come. As soon as the scion is near you the player with the flashbang will have to stun him (only 1) and after all players melee him , kill the other 2-3 drones that will be close to you, done that too you will have to head later and there will be the round room where there will be so many drones, here you are being repaired and head to the right and wait for the player with Kat to have his ultimate. As soon as he has his ultimate ready go to the left where you entered and the player with Kat must activate hologram and everyone will have to run on the left side, almost at the end where there is the safe room the player with Emile can use his shield final to protect the team from the shots of enemies not distracted by Kat's ultimate, once that is done you will be at saferoom.
The player with the incendiary grenade can take if he wants the shock grenade but it all depends on what types of enemies there will be as soon as you exit the door.
These are the 3 cases of enemy spawn:
- Grenadiers
- Juvies and Sire
- Mulcher Scion and one Grenadier
- For the first case which will be the worst of all the player with the flashbang must stun the drones and the player with Lahni will have to use his ultimate and kill all the enemies.
- For the second case the player with the shock grenade will have to use it to slow down and hurt the juvies and the player with frag granade will have to use and kill as many juvies as possible, the remaining enemies kill them with the melee and be very careful to the Sire.
- For the third case the player with the flashbang will have to stun him and all the players melee him, once killed think also to kill the grenadier.
Once you have passed this part too you will have to go to the right and there will be a couple of drones with sniper and hammberburst, stay to the right and kill all these enemies as quickly as possible using the melee combo, once killed all go straight ahead and in front of you the Warden or Swarm will spawn.
If you spawn the Warden the player with the flashbang must stun him and the player with Lahni must activate his ultimate and hit him from behind and kill him and take the hammer. But if in the first part you have already used the Lahni ultimate for the Grenadiers you will have to go ahead and there will be 2 supply rooms, your task is to have one player go each supply rooms and the warden comes to stun him with flashbang you will find in the rooms and leave immediately and close the door so he will be locked inside.
If instead you were to spawn the Swarm you will have to do the same thing and close it inside but without stun him because it will have no effect.
Once that is done, kill all the enemies that will be behind you and especially the Sire and take the flashbang and shock grenades inside the supply on the left.
Now there will be the last part before the extraction zone go to left behind covers and if there will be drones close to you kill them with the melee combo or player with Lahni use hammer, NOT SHOOT in front of you to get the scion's attention, as soon as they are on the left side the scions immediately take the road to the right and if you find some enemy in front of you kill them with the hammer or stun them specially the scions, while you run towards extraction zone the player with Kat must use his ultimate so most of the Enemies including juvies that will arrive while you run away will be distracted by the hologram,remains enemies that will coming kill them and just finished and you will be save achievement will pop up.
Guys I hope I have been useful to you, soon my friend's video guide on youtube will be uploaded and i will post it when available.
Viva VizionzThanks for the tips! Mind helping me out? I have level 17 lahni.

The SCHWARTZ 00When you say Swarm will spawn at the end, do you mean the Flock?

ninjaraiden2003Still need to do this but haven't seen any sessions dedicated purely to going for this achievement. Have my Lahni, Keegan and Mac all at 14 atm but never got access to Kat or Emile.
Posted by ninjaraiden2003 on 30 Sep 19 at 03:38
KanchanaburiYeah, kind of disheartening that Kat and Emil are great, and yet there is no achievement tied to them.

NegativeCreep08There are several user created maps that claim to get you this achievement easily, I've tried several but nothing unlocks. Is this the game being buggy or does it have to be done on a proper map?

monkeybiscitzI would imagine this would be easier on surge due to the ease of speeding it already. Am I wrong?

C3LLDW3LLERCan you just run through the surge?
Posted by C3LLDW3LLER on 12 May 20 at 18:35
Serious X Devil"The Surge" is not the way for this achievement anymore they patched it and added to the second part "4 scions inside and 2 outside waiting for you on the Helipad" taking these scions out with just melee would be next to impossible, I recommend these two hives as the easiest to get the achievement on... The Clock and The Hive.

WazQB2I wonder if the new Melee Escape would be good for this? It's not very long and the pipes seem to do some serious damage. Plus Emile can crush the Wardens with his bleed damage and a breaker mace.
Posted by WazQB2 on 27 May 20 at 20:20
Serious X DevilI think the new melee brawl map is amazing to do the achievement on! only thing you have to be careful of is the Imago's with the freezing bullets mutator. (Lahni in the venom with Venom Blade is a must!, 2-3 Breaker Mace hits on a warden and then bleed will take him down, she is really GREAT on this map, we also had a good Cole and Clayton with his anti-freeze cards) ^
Posted by Serious X Devil on 28 May 20 at 13:52
WazQB2I just earned this last night with two random people. We did The Descent because it doesn’t have Ironman mode. I was Emile, then they were Lahni and Cole. The only tricky part was the two Ice Scions, but we used Lahni’s ultimate and it was a non-issue. Waiting for the Venom is key!
Posted by WazQB2 on 01 Jun 20 at 11:08
Phil the BearJust did this also on The Descent.

No Ironman makes it much less stressful. We also did Cole, Emile, Lahni.
Posted by Phil the Bear on 18 Jun 20 at 23:14
Serious X DevilWe just did Cole, Clayton and Lahni on "The Hive" For those that don't know Claytons ultimate does not void the achievement, as soon as we locked the warden in the safe room rest of the hive was easy.
Posted by Serious X Devil on 09 Aug 20 at 16:12
DonnieDarkoAnyone need help with this add me. I have lahni level 18 and Cole 15 but working on getting maxed as of this post. Will happily help anyone after ive got it too so drop me a message.
Posted by DonnieDarko on 13 Aug 20 at 11:37
GeneralRag3rAchievement not unlocking. Done the descent on master twice. No bullet fired. Only shock and incendiary used. 1 guy picked up explosive ammo to get extra grenade. Not sure if that voids achievement. Or if we have to do it in 1 go?
Posted by GeneralRag3r on 13 Aug 20 at 15:55
FlesseckI wonder if Melee Brawl is good for this! Ping me if anyone wants to try. :)
Posted by Flesseck on 16 Aug 20 at 15:29
Serious X Devil^ Bastions at the end of melee brawl can mess you up (since you cannot kill them with melee), can't remember exactly but i'm sure they protect Mulcher Scions.
Posted by Serious X Devil on 16 Aug 20 at 21:14
DeceptiveTenThe achievement says no shots fired and in your guide, it says here
"As soon as everyone is ready a player will have to go ahead and shoot on the drones and scion for aggro"
Posted by DeceptiveTen on 26 Aug 20 at 15:40
IMKevin117I tried doing this twice with Cole and still didn't pop it. I didn't pick up any weapons at all and only used Cole's melee the entire time. I don't understand why it's not popping.

Posted by Arador on 15 Sep 20 at 07:37
HellSpawnCF42DeceptiveTen, he means run out at them, get their attention, then run back. The achievement is for no one in the team to fire a gun, not just one person. Grenades, melee and abilities are all fair game.

Nand@HellSpawnCF42 I knew what he meant but the readers shouldn’t have to decipher the guide. It should be updated correctly. It should also say whether just one person has to not shoot or if it’s the whole team that can’t fire shots. For as much work as the author took to write the guide ,I’m sure, it is somewhat lousy to omit these issues.

EmperorRav3nNo Ironman on The Decent sure makes it less stressful. Did it with Cole, Lahni and Mac. The second part was the trickiest with the ice scions, but as long as one person gets to the second saferoom, last part is just gunning it.

TJ EliminatorAny idea why this doesn’t unlock? Did a community featured hive on master without firing a shot twice.
Posted by TJ Eliminator on 03 Dec 20 at 11:57
monkeybiscitzI am willing to team up for this
Posted by monkeybiscitz on 08 Dec 20 at 22:04
Lost Killaz@TJ Eliminator: if your teammates firing a shot you won‘t unlock the cheevo.. to unlock it, no one should firing a shot.
Posted by Lost Killaz on 17 Dec 20 at 14:16
IMKevin117I don't care about everything else you typed. I want to know if I can use the thrashball cole charge or not. I tried this many times and it's not popping. Melee counts as "firing a shot"??

edit: or is this a thing where EVERYONE is not able to shoot? I thought it was only that I can't shoot.
Posted by IMKevin117 on 23 Dec 20 at 03:51
Moldy Tacos5000Everyone can't shoot.

Addicted2RPGsFrom what I understand *no shots fired* from anyone on your team.
Posted by Addicted2RPGs on 30 Dec 20 at 15:25
aliasBushidoAn easier way to do this is to play on The Blight using the Brawler class.
