This achievement (Meet New People. Then Kill Them.) is for winning a multiplayer match. In ranked matches, you get 10,000 "points" that you spend on a team of humans, aliens, or a mix of both. Tougher aliens cost more, and so do soldiers with more experience and skills and better weapons.

Whether you win a match or not depends a lot on your opponent and what they choose. I seemed to do best with the following team:

- Sniper with archangel armor, plasma sniper rifle, and one of the skill loadouts with Squad Sight and Damn Good Ground.
- Heavy Floater
- Thin Man
- Sectoid

The Thin Man and Sectoid were purely for scouting, and I kept them as covered as possible. While my opponent was distracted with them, I flanked them with the Heavy Floater, and once they came out of cover to attack him, my sniper (who was flying high all the way across the map) made short work of their units.

What style you choose is up to you. There is no "winning" strategy, since any strategy you choose can be countered easily with the right setup. Just have fun, multiplayer is actually pretty amazing in this game. You'll win a match eventually.

Edit: Apparently you can get this in a private match as well, thanks Shinwasha. In private matches, strategies will differ, but I imagine most private matches will be to boost this achievement, so strategy probably won't matter anyway.
ShinwashaCan be done in Private match. Have the person getting achievement make a team, and have the person giving it use a sectoid and that's it.

Pvt KeoghConfirmed the above. I got this in a private game in a party. We had a legitimate match but I won the round and got the achievement so it doesn't have to be in a ranked game against a randomer.

Quantum BinmanKryptCeeper969 is right - private game, have the other person quit as soon as it begins and the achievement pops for 5 seconds of effort ^_^

Soldier0334I used the team of the solution, it worked pretty well. Maybe that's because I had a real rookie for opponant ^^
So if you are lucky, you can fight with someone who just started the game ! :D

QwanimalNot sure what I'm doing wrong but the squad you suggest costs too many points (11850).

QwanimalNever mind. I used a regular floater instead. Got it at the first attempt. Good guide.
