*** SERVER SHUTDOWN IMMINENT: EA has scheduled the Burnout Revenge servers for shutdown on October 24th, 2017. ***

** NOTE: EA shut down the servers for this game in April of 2012, but brought them back up - without announcement - in May of the same year. Thanks to all the commenters that kept us updated for five years as the servers continued operations! **

I realize most everyone that is going to get this achievement already has it, but for those about to plug away at it and planning on boosting with a partner:

1) Set up a crash party with another person.
2) Set the number of rounds to 10 (max).
3) Make sure you both select the same car.
4) Walk away from the controllers.
5) After all ten rounds, hit start a couple times as required to start over.

After four matches, both of you will pop the achievement. Both people should wind up getting the same number of dollar damage on each crash event. Each round counts as a win; on a tie, both players get the win. So forty rounds later, ping!

Couple of notes:
- It shouldn't matter which map (intersection) you choose, since neither of you is touching the controller you should get identical damage. However, I only tested this on the same intersection over and over - Drain Damage. So if you're not tying, try that.
EDIT: LearFool, in the comments below, mentions he had problems tying on Drain Damage. That wasn't my experience, but his suggestion of Swiss Roll sounds like a very good one. You might start there; I like the fact that the crash begins so fast. Thanks to LearFool for the find.

- Multiple people should be able to do this as easily as two, but I only tested it with two people.
EDIT: Brucey B Cool's comment below indicates that he was, in fact, able to get the achievement for six people in a maxed-out lobby with everyone tying on each round. Nice!

Happy Boosting.

forced2changeI can verify that this works. I used this method with one other person and it unlocked for both of us.

Team BretherGreat solution, saved loads of time! for those wishing to do this, it takes approx. 1hr 20 mins from start to finish

LearFoolGood guide but we found that random tracks and Drain Damage, in particular, do not give the same amount of damage to each person (not touching the controller). So we went with Swiss Roll which has the advantage of crashing into a wall quickly if you do nothing.

Master FunkyTomI'v found that it is win 40 Turns not rounds whilst iv been helping a fellow gamer

PuckJunkieMaster FunkyTom, could you clarify? My recollection is that you set up a match, and in each map there are rounds. You can set the number of rounds to a maximum 10 and get 40 of them in 4 matches. I don't know what a "turn" is in this context, so if you could distinguish between a turn and a round it would help me understand your comment.

PuckJunkieSorry, the Multiplayer menu's local-only events do not count toward this achievement. You have to choose the online events from the Xbox Live menu. It would be nice if local events counted so the EA server shutdown didn't prevent you from getting the achievement, wouldn't it?

Brucey B CoolThis is brilliant guide. We used the sweet rolls method with all six players in the lobby so if you wanted you could edit the solution to say it works with a maxed out multiplayer lobby.
Thumbs up!

InfinityOnH1ghSo win 40 individual turns? As in, getting the high score for one crash nets you one win?
Posted by InfinityOnH1gh on 12 Aug 17 at 01:33
PuckJunkieYes. Each round is a win.
