You simply have to find, buy and equip the Baby Carrier and play through any level wearing it. The idea behind this achievement is that the Baby Carrier adds nothing to your stats and the backpacks are very useful items.

Obtaining items is random so there's no quick or easy way to do this. You find items in the game world that unlock items in the shop (they're color-coded crates with icons on them letting you know what kind of item you just found). So just keep playing until you find and can afford this item:

Baby Carrier (Level 4, 1,170 nuts)

As you can see, this is basically a freebie achievement if you disregard the fact that finding the Baby Carrier is entirely based on luck. I didn't find it until I was level 28, but once I did, I obviously had far more money than needed and beating a level with it is not as much of a drawback as using the astronaut's gear.
Macfly77422I'm level 50 and don't have that baby carrier. I did the first level like a hundred times, the second and third level a lot and the fourth one again and again, and no sign of a baby carrier :(

DROGTURISTI know, I have the same problem but with another item. It's a level 2 gun and I just cannot find it in any difficulty or level! I've posted on the official forum asking for an explanation on how it all works, so hopefully they'll respond so I can update this solution.

BTW, by Level 4, I mean your character, not level in the game.

Macfly77422I just read what you wrote there and their answers, and it seems I need to keep grinding.
I just hope it's not because i'm level 50 that i can't drop low levels item.

R3NEG4D3Im a 50 as well and I've pretty much grinded the entire set of normal and hard levels...No baby carrier, however my buddy who just bought the game and was playing with me got the baby carrier at level 10.

R3NEG4D3I know that despite your level you can get the game to drop you lower level items because I keep unlocking lower level items while I'm a rank 50...I had a boatload of money so I just kept buying lower level items from the shop in hopes of getting the game to start dropping me more items, but I don't know if that works..It seems every game I am in other people get like 10 special crates a game, but I always get nothing.

DROGTURISTI think the game makes any item drop, even common items, more rare as you level up. It's probably a good idea for new players to stop at normal and make sure they get the astronaut and baby gear before they start on hard and level up too far...

I followed the devs advice and went back and did about 5 random levels on normal and finally got my level 2 weapon to drop, so the same should work for the carrier.

R3NEG4D3I basically played all day at level 50 and no baby...I made a new save and got the baby carrier around level 20...No idea what happened, but I guess if your like me and you hit a high rank and do not get the baby carrier then you should maybe try to start another save game.

Macfly77422I finally got it !

I put my save on a memory stick so i can start a fresh new campaign on my HDD with the same account. I just played the first level of the game until i was level 15, and no Baby Carrier.

I went back to my level 50 save and played the first level for 2 hours in a row ( with +%speed gear) and after something like the 80th run, i got it. In total it must have took me 200++ runs to get it.

Never been lucky, never will...

KILL IT NOWi had the same problem so i equiped level 3 and lower items and replayed happy nut road [farm town ] and it popped

LathandertgSo equipping bad items might work? I will try this. I am also Level 50 now and replayed the first set of levels over and over - no baby carrier. Perhaps I will try the USB stick method as well.

I am not lucky in these things as well - it is just like the 50 GS Bee in The Last Remnant. Most people got it within their first ten tries, but I needed over 200 tries...

On second thought, it might be better not aiming for completion in this one ;)
Posted by Lathandertg on 30 May 12 at 06:55
LathandertgOf course I could not stop trying it ;) But equipping Speed+ Items worked perfect for me. I got through the first level in no time and sometime in my 5th or 6th run new items began to appear. Somewhere in my 15th run I got the baby carrier finally.

All in all - "only" 60-80 runs for me. I was really lucky compared to the 50 GS bee in The Last Remnant. Nonetheless, these luck-based achievements suck.

TATZ DCI found mine in level 1.2
I guess you have to fulfill some requirements to get a certain crate to drop.
Mine dropped in bonus wave 4 from one of last 'big' enemies.
I got through this wave without being hit at all.

Maybe that helps.

TrueWickedoneI have heard the second level in chapter 1 (survival) is the best to get it, but still trying myself. playing each of the chapter 1 maps until I get it. I only am missing the baby carrier so every item i get is a nut sack. Every time you see a nut sack though, at least you know you had a chance at it. Survival map gave me about 21 sacks, so I think survival is by far the best chance to get it, but still need luck and a lot of patience for some people.

Saft Und KraftHappy Nut Road - Midtown - level 13 - second save file - single player - normal mode. this is where i got mine.

keungCrap crap crap CRAP achievement!!! I spent close to 15 hours farming for this item exclusively. I tried every trick in the book; buy all the items in the store, lose no health, equip low level items, start a new character (I levelled 3 up to 20 farming for this item..), NOTHING worked. I can play the first two adventures blindfolded without any problem whatsoever.

I read on the official forums that one of the moderators said that loot has a higher drop ratio when certain criteria are met, such as nut multiplier, and whether you're playing single player or multi player (latter being better). This had me thinking that playing online would grant me higher chances of getting this item, but heck no. The broken quick match system the dev's decided to jot down on a piece of paper and throw it at their monitors in hopes of getting decent multi player support would only put me (a LEVEL ONE) into insane matches. GAH! Just thinking about it makes me want to shoot many developers.

Anyway, rant aside, what eventually made this annoying baby drop was plugging in a second controller and playing ONE(!!!!!!!!!!!!!!) game on adventure two's survival mission Downtown Roadblock. It was the FIRST item to drop even. Oh gawd. So if you're stuck, like I was, instead of wasting a billion hours trying to farm each level, plug in another controller and replay the survival missions. Wish you the best of luck. I'm done, BWAHAHAHA!

Cheese TouchI got this by starting a new character on the cloud save and playing with two controllers, alternating between the first two levels in the first mission and never purchasing equipment. It took two tries (I deleted the save and started over when I got to level 8).

OGs Nobodyfound it on level 1-2 with my lev 46 char.took 3 tries.wink

Adam J KirbyCan confirm that doing it on Co-Op with my lvl. 42 character on Roadblock Survival (Ch. 2, Mis. 3) seems to increase the chances of it dropping. Dropped for me on my second go through. Thank the lord, this achievement was pissing me off!

Guile132I just got mines today at level 25. It's a very random spawning item like you stated but I kept going back between the first map and then the survival but got tired of doing the first map because it ends so quickly so I stuck with survival and it came eventually. I gave you a thumbs up because I felt your pain of aggrivation.

NitrousSpeedIm still not getting the Baby Carrier to spawn in Co-OP

DittHestFinally! After trying everything suggested many times over, I finally got it on 1-3 with my (maybe) seventh character. Took me about 10 - 12 hours of farming after I completed everything else.
Posted by DittHest on 11 Jan 14 at 07:46
NitrousSpeedFinally got it today playing in Co-Op with a friend on level 1-2 at wave 4

rocking23nfI found the astronaut helmet on 2-3 at level 40 :)

RickyGBirdGot it at level 41, on 1-1 normal. Just played the level with basic clothing.

j wiziteI just want to point something out, and quite frankly am surprised that nobody else has not yet. It seems like there have been hundreds of different possibilities to get this shitty item.

Please stop claiming you know how to pop this. There is no rhyme or reason. If you tried something and it worked on your first try. All that fucking means is you were a lucky bastard. Because if this wasn't true, I would have the achievement like you. But I tried the hundred of bullshit scenarios you all shared and none of it worked. So if your selling a four leaf clover, then I'm buying it.
Posted by j wizite on 27 May 14 at 02:36
j wiziteFinally got it solo on the very first level after about 25 hours of fresh character re-starts...what a nightmare! If I had to make an uncertified suggestion try to skip anything on the level that typically doesn't spawn crates. This will keep you at level 2 for a longer period of time. Still think it's just getting lucky tho : (
Posted by j wizite on 28 May 14 at 01:38
just followed the second persons guide and worked on the first try just plug in a second controller and do the first survival are let the second controller die got 1st try not random at all
Posted on 12 Jun 14 at 01:13
MugenKairo@ Lumina: Not true if that were the case I would have it as well. A random achievement, noting more.

NIXXION44I got this in Metal Slag Trail, Factory. I was level 25 (new save file). once I unlocked the Factory, i did not continue on, I re-played that level about ten times. HINT: after opening the crates, about half way through the lvl., the crates that you need the E.V.A to get, go back up. Go in to what i call the "blue doors" to find 2 more crates,
