For this achievement you must shoot all 4 hive locations located in the 4 new multiplayer maps that are a part of the Onslaught DLC. You can quit the game once you shoot the hive and the notice pops up. These MUST be done in public matches.

[0:06] - Ignition
This hive is located underground near the middle of the map. You have to find the container that leads into a small underground hallway. In this hallway, you'll find a hive on the wall.

[0:29] - Fog
Use the in-game mini-map for this. First, you'll want to make your way to the middle of the map, inside the cave system marked light blue on the mini-map. Inside the cave system, there will be a waterfall, marked by a dark blue circle on your map. Go up to the waterfall, aim inside to find the hive.

[0:55] - Bayview
Make your way to the side of the map with the lighthouse. Looking at the lighthouse, follow the boardwalk to the left, and aim off the side to find the hive under the pier across the water. You may need a long distance weapon for this hive.

[1:15] - Containment
On one side of the long street that runs through the entire map, you will find a gas station that is identified with a large circular sign. Jump onto the green dumpster in front of the gas station, aim across the street and to the left. You will find the hive on the roof of the small building next to the large green building.

After completing all 4 of these hives, you will need to go into an extinction game of Nightfalland then destroy a hive using the drill to unlock the achievement.
TheNutman69321I can't even remember how many games your guides have helped me on at this point Maka. Thanks for getting this one up so quick.

ICECLlMBERSI did this, and the achievement did not unlock, and I even got the 10,000 Xp :(

BrokenKnghtGreat guide thanks! I competed each map, but I wonder if you can shoot it and then just quit?

I shot all 4 of the hives in Multiplayer then destroyed the first hive on Point of Contact but did not receive the 10,000 XP or the Achievement. So I started up Nightfall and destroyed one hive there and got the XP but no Achievement. So I'm pretty sure you must destroy the hive on Nightfall for this to count. I was quitting out of each multiplayer match after shooting the hives, so maybe that's why I didn't get the Achievement as well. I am going to try playing a full match on each of the DLC maps and see if it pops.

Maka91Keep me updated on your glitches. I also quit out of every match, and accidentally played Point of Contact before nightfall but did not plant the drill. I did it in a 2-player party, but it's also unlocked for all my friends without a problem.

If we figure more out, I will update the solution.

Playing a full match on every DLC map didn't unlock it for me either. I also went back on Nightfall and destroyed another hive but no luck.

woopigsueyI got the achievement but didn't see when it popped, the only thing I can think is on my first try I didn't plant the drill myself but I did the second time

It seems the Achievement did unlock for me but I never got the notification, because it's showing up now. That happened to me with one of the Campaign Achievements as well. I recommend checking your Achievements if you don't see it pop on screen.

MungBardI can confirm that quitting out of MP matches should not break this. I quit out of several. I also tried POC first, with no luck. Played Nightfall, planted the drill. Once hive was destroyed, I got points and a few seconds later the cheevo popped.

Tr1ggerhappy21ok, this happened to a friend of mine in a game with just me and him, i shot all the eggs and finished the multiplayer games and he shot them all and didnt finish the games, then we both played a game together, the achievement poped for me and not him, then he tried planting the drill instead of me and nothing, he tried several different things and nothing was working, we then turned off the xbox pulled the power out of the back so it could do a complete restart (it dosent turn all the way off unless you pull the power) then restarted a the game, he then played a solo match and it poped on the first hive in nightfall. I wanna say the xbox just needs a complete restart and then all should work.

l Archvile lOk here what I did to get it

>Got all 4 hive in the multiplayer maps
>Quit out right away after getting them and seeing the pop up that I did
>tried point of contact! didn't pop and no xp
>went into nightfall
>destroyed a hive
>Xp pop up came up instantly
>About 5 seconds later it disappears
>Achievement popped

So I guess it HAS to be nightfall

xHIGHRISKxI got all the eggs on the maps and quit right after, planted the drill on the first hive on nightfall got my xp but no achievement! Anyone have any suggestions?

TheIcemanComethI had the same issue others did with finding all the hives in the multiplayer maps, but the achievement not popping after destroying a hive in Point of Contact. Destroying the first hive in Nightfall did it, which makes sense to me since that map is part of the Onslaught DLC.

Matthewh00You can now get the eggs on Squad Mode Wargame. The bots are on Regular on this at the moment.

LesPaulClassicsThis achievement works cross-platforms. I played the 4 multiplayer maps on the Xbox One, but didn't go into Extinction immediately. The next time I played Extinction on the Xbox 360 to my surprise this achievement popped. Then I went back to the Xbox One and got the achievement again by completing the Extinction requirement. Two for the price of one!

McRedRoverI have done everything required to get the achievement but it's not popping. I found all 4 eggs in public multiplayer matches and shot them all. I then destroyed a hive in Nightfall in a public match where I placed the drill. No pop. Then did a solo game. No pop. Also tried Mayday and Point of Contact. Both solo and public. It won't pop. Anyone else have this problem? Any advice?

l306l PoRkRoAsTFor anyone having problems unlocking the Egg-stra XP achievements, make sure you are playing extinction on Xbox live from the multiplayer menu and not locally. A friend and I couldn't get them to unlock locally and so we tried playing through the multiplayer menu (custom game) and they unlocked first try for us. Your rank is separate for online vs local so I figure if the eggs need to be shot in online matches the Extinction matches must be played the online as well.
