By far, the easiest way to do this is in Firefight on Courtyard. This map is the same area as the first section of ONI: Sword Base, and has two forklifts. Choose Gruntpocalypse as the gamemode on easy difficulty. Change your weapon loadout so you spawn with a Gravity Hammer with infinite ammo. Also make yourself invulnerable in the Base Traits section of the options. Now, simply run around the map and smack the forklift around with the gravity hammer. When you hit it, it will fly forward with a lot of speed, and can take out entire groups of grunts very easily. I was able to get a splatter spree within a minute of starting with this method.
Itzz Sh0wt1m3Thanks! Something worth noting is that ypu can get this even if the forklift is destroyed

NicoleRenee00I had to lower my weapon/melee damage to keep the forklift intact, but it worked within a few minutes. toast

StuckByAGruntA few things that helped us (with two players)

1) Forklift doesnt have to be intact when it splatters
2) Worked fine on easy difficulty
3) Only the Xbox live host could get the achievement

nemesis646Worked for me. Can confirm the forklift can be destroyed and you can still get the achievement

GrimaceTheGreyDid this get patched? I have gotten splatter medal after splatter medal, no achievement.
Posted by GrimaceTheGrey on 02 Feb 20 at 18:07
Homunculus Furyare you the host? i doubt this was patched as this really seems the only logical way of doing this, as you can barely gain enough speed driving it to splatter anyone.
Posted by Homunculus Fury on 02 Feb 20 at 21:25
GrimaceTheGreyI am the host. Tried it both as the only person playing, and playing with another person but as host. Might just be unlucky.

GrimaceTheGreyI've tried every solution on here, as both the host, and just plain solo, and on two different consoles, because... What the hell lol. Absolutely cannot get it to unlock.

GrimaceTheGreyOk, definitely not patched, tied it with my wife's profile, unlocked just fine. Just bugged for me for whatever reason. Tried everything I can think of, but it doesn't unlock. So I guess I'm just unlucky. Anyone else had this problem?
Posted by GrimaceTheGrey on 06 Feb 20 at 17:05
Homunculus Furymy friend had the issue but not as long as you have so far he end up at 8 or so splatters before it unlocked.
Posted by Homunculus Fury on 06 Feb 20 at 21:17
GrimaceTheGreyWell, at least there is hope if it eventually unlocked for him, maybe it will for me as well.

thatNoseyParkerWell, I tried for several minutes and only got 1 kill... is there a setting on technique I’m missing? The forklift would just fly up into the air, if it managed to touch a grunt it’d barely hurt them

Homunculus FuryYou don't want to hit the forklift directly just in front of it. You want to hammer the ground in between you and the forklift

ThePaleHorsemanThis will just not unlock for me. I have done it every way possible. I've followed all of the guides and gotten tons of splatters, and the fucker just won't pop. Used a silver account and it popped on there first try. So obviously it's just broken on my profile... anyone know any way go fix that?

ThePaleHorsemanFound a solution buried in the forums for anyone that is having trouble getting this or another achievement to unlock that worked right away. The reasoning for them was playing between PC and Xbox, for me I think it was I met the requirement when the achievement servers were messed up. But that's not important. The fix is.

Go offline with your xbox, delete your save file from your console, start the game and meet the requirements for the achievement while still offline. Close the game, go back online. I didn't even have to start the game again, the achievement popped on the home screen. Just be sure when you start the game again you CHOOSE YOUR CLOUD/OLD SAVE WHEN IT ASKS YOU WHICH SAVE FILE TO USE. otherwise you will lose all of your progress.

Stringbean17I’m having issues unlocking this one too. It’s not letting me play the game offline. How do you get around this?
Posted by Stringbean17 on 19 Mar 20 at 02:12
Homunculus FuryMake sure your Xbox is set as your home console

magmashark20Just got it by deleting my save like ThePaleHorseman described. Took a few loads of the game but it should work. The achievement should be marked as buggy though.
Posted by magmashark20 on 30 Mar 20 at 00:39
GrimaceTheGreyDid the save delete as PaleHorseman suggested. It worked, but I had to load back into the game, recover my cloud and sit on the title screen for a few minutes. If it doesn't unlock right away after reconnecting to the internet, don't give up hope, just be patient.

GremlinLord615My forklift blew up, but was still able to get it with the wreckage. +1

RHW gamingFor those who are having problems with this achievement and are following the guide regarding the grav hammer in grunt apocalypse.

-Replace the grav hammer with the concussion rifle.

It worked for me and it doesn't explode the forklift immediately while it still made the forklift fly around enough to cause a splatter.
