I am not entirely certain about this one. But, I noticed when I obtained this achievement, was only with myself, a friend, and a bot. We all equally attacked an enemy, taking turns with attacking. So, try this, and let me know if it works lol!

*Edit* I think from what I have been seeing in the comments, and personal experience, I believe the first two players in the lobby might have a better chance than the 3rd person that comes into a lobby. I remember when I never got the achievement as the 3rd person into the lobby, just only when I was either the host, or the 2nd person into the lobby.
Leo Ascendent Yep, this works. When I got it I was with one other player and a bot, I didn't perform a critical finish and wasn't even near the enemy when it died. Either way, was happy to get it.

Lathandertg In a session with two friends today we tried a whole hour until we finally got the achievement. The funny thing was that one of us got the achievement after two minutes - the other two did not. This simply should not be possible since if one gets the achievement the other two should get it also. This achievement is - like so much else in this game - buggy.

xLoCk 0nx Yeah last night I was playing with one friend and a bot. It seemed we were lucky enough that the bot stopped being a gimp for a moment and finally pulled out his sword. All 3 of us attacked the same enemy but only my friend got the achievement. How that is possible I don't know! Definitely buggy. I'm thinking all 3 characters need to perform a Y attack at the same time to finish the enemy at the same time. I believe you get a "Co-op Kill" if two of you do this, and some "Fellowship" bonus if all 3 do it. I'm thinking of just hosting a public game with my friend so we get a third player who can try help us.

Gdinut just to throw this out there i did a gaming session with 2 other players, we got this starting a new game in nomal in the area after you save beleram we would all attack the same enemy at the same time using only Y to try to get a fellowship kill, it worked after only like 2 attempts and everyone got the achievement.

Poprin Just got this through a TA boosting session. First attempt only the host got the achievement. On the second attempt we changed hosts and the remaining two people popped the achievement. It's a bit buggy but it does pop with a little effort. Found the easiest way was to all attack the same enemy and as soon as the yellow strike marker appear hit the button. We tried the whole (1,2,3, GO!) approach and this just proved to take too long and had no luck!

DarkSquall1 Clearly there are many ambiguous ways to unlock this achievement, but what my friend and i found was switching around not only who is host, but also what character we were playing as made the difference.

Playing through our first play through, my friend was the dwarf, I was the Dunedain, and the elf was a bot. He was fortunate to have the achievement pop while facing the Barrow Wight Lord, but I did not receive it. We kept trying with this paradigm, but he would always get credited with group kills and i would get credited with co-op kills. We switched so that I was the Dwarf, and on our first group kill the achievement popped. This tell me that in SOME cases it may be the person doing the most damage on the final blow that receives the group kill.

The strategy we used was to kill off the bulk of monsters in an area, and then run behind the bot to drag enemies towards the bot (otherwise they stand and use ranged attacks). Once he was embroiled in hand-to-hand combat, we walked in and slowly struck until the yellow triangle popped up. Wait about a second, then both players do a Y attack, and hopefully the bot should too. It's good to note that this doesn't work on creatures that are in death throws (you'll sometimes see a yellow arrow that disappears but the creature dies anyways, it seems that these creatures are already "dead" but the chance is there for an EXP bonus.) and this is why many people report that it does not work on trolls, as the yellow arrow is usually there during it's death throws.

In short, just keep on switching roles and try to be patient, I know buggy achievements are frustrating. I am willing to help anyone who needs this so just shoot me a message and we can set something up, Cheers!

e Korch This achieve has pained me for a long time, so bugged :(

varkylfus Just got it today. We started a new game on normal. Shot the first enemy with two arrows and killed the other. We pinned the enemy against one wall and surrounded him on all other sides. We each alternated using X until the yellow appeared. One of us used X once more then we all used Y.

I was the host and played as the ranger. The other player was set up with a guest, the dwarf. Only I got the achievement.

(Failed) We kept surrounding one enemy, either with one doing all the damage or all using Y until the yellow appeared. One of us would get final blow while the other would get the co-op kill. Finally, we alternated attacking with X until the yellow showed up, Fellowship Attack materialized but no achievement. The goblin got back up.

Oliversuddenn What is very annoying about this achievement is I believe the kill must say group kill and not fellowship attack as iv gotten plenty of them with no achievement. Looking at my stats I have 0 group kills so this is where the confusion lies

PS: I still need this achievement so message me

Mobius Evalon The difficulty of this achievement is entirely in gauging your latency.

Choose the host with the best connection (lowest ping/highest bandwidth) and have them do the countdown when the yellow arrow appears. You get about 3 seconds before the arrow disappears so the countdown has to be pretty fast when accounting for the amount of time it takes the host to notice it, requisite consideration for lag time over party chat, etc. It is important that the host chooses a pace of countdown and sticks with it.

Pay very close attention to what's going on with the other players. If you whiff the group kill entirely or a coop kill happens without you, then you need to adjust your Y button press to slightly earlier in the countdown. If you're getting critical kills and not a coop kill at all, you're too fast and need to adjust your button press to slightly later in the countdown (or perhaps after it entirely depending on circumstances).

The achievement is not glitched but it does exist in a game that is not friendly to internet lag at all.
