Easiest way, load up safeguard mode and just shoot the eggs. To get specific maps just back out from the loading screen. You should be able to pop the eggs before the first wave arrives. Once you do just back out and rinse and repeat. After all eggs have been shot back out load up extinction and complete one hive. That's how I got mine in less than 10 minutes.
Vegas ChaosThis needs to be the best solution!!! Just tried it and can confirm it takes less than 5 minutes and you won't have to deal with the hassle of other players killing you or random map selection from public multiplayer matches.

BIGB ECJust thought I would mention I did it in safe guard play now mode. Solution worked for me.

HotzoglouWhat are you going into that you can select the maps?
I know it's Safeguard, but is it Local or Online?
If it's online then it's only giving me random maps to play.
If it's offline(local), then when I shoot the hives, no notification pops up saying that I shot it.

InsaneFlameEasy as you like, thanks for posting this. +1

HotzoglouPlease answer me OP.

InsaneFlame@Hotzoglou I went to Multiplayer > Squads > Xbox Live Squads > Safeguard > Play Now

Once you hit 'Play now' look to the bottom left of your screen it will say the level it is booting up. If this is not the one you require for the achievement then back out and hit play now again it will cycle through. Once you shoot the hive then quit out and repeat above until the map you need comes up.

MechaHertzEpic man. Took me a little more than 5 minutes to get the hives but only because Fog wouldn't come up. Eggs-elent guide man :) Thumbs up from me!

HamsterLVGood guide bro, thumbs up from me, but add-- Multiplayer > Squads > Xbox Live Squads > Safeguard > Play Now --so that people know where to go.

StockierHeartI've already done mine on a different way (a bit more difficulty), but your guide is WONDERFUL... Please repost it in all others Egg-stra achievements so everybody see it.
Thumbs up for you !

Shadow 00 FoxI'm not voting negative, but please include the maps, and the location in the maps for the thing to shoot. Otherwise, you don't have a solution!wink Thanks!

Chaotic FiascoShadow 00 Fox is right. Without indicating which maps the eggs are on and describing their specific locations, this is only half a solution. I plan to use your method for getting the achievement, but I had to look elsewhere to find where the eggs are. I won't vote either way.
Posted by Chaotic Fiasco on 07 Jan 15 at 21:50
TaxableRegent1So I'm supposed to posterize? I did 90% of the leg work. Next time I find glitches like these ill keep them to myself. Pearls before swine.
Posted by TaxableRegent1 on 08 Jan 15 at 07:49
Shadow 00 FoxThat will MOST DEFINITELY get you negative votes, throwing around attitude like that. wink Your solution readers are trying to be helpful.... now, you might've been having a bad day I suppose!

TooprofThanks for posting this. I can confirm that it works on all dlc maps. Piece of cake. Thanks again man.
Posted by Tooprof on 07 Aug 15 at 10:02
ReaboSo I need to be online still to get this achievement? I can't do it offline?
Posted by Reabo on 01 Oct 15 at 11:51
Zerstuca@TaxableRegent1 Thank you for posting this, I was able to deduct where the eggs were at from other sources, don't need to be spoon fed everything.

RulkyExcellent solution! Thumbs up for me 👍
Posted by Rulky on 02 Aug 19 at 05:54
Shadow 00 FoxI can't believe this is top solution considering that it just looks like a helpful comment on another solution, especially considering TaxableRegent1 has ignored the helpful comments in the comments completely.
