Hi. I "cheat" this achivement with Loki, Amprex and Ballistica. Without Sentinels. You need to kill just 1 enemy with 1 headshot. And lat the rest kill themself. Use Amprex with extrem small radiation damage 16,5, but dont forget this +100% status duration mod for rifles (sorry dont know the name calls "Anhaltendes Elend" in german). Just make 1 headshot, run to the extraction point and lat captain Vor kill the rest. You dont need to kill Vor. I hope that was helpfull and i am sorry for my bad english x3 ;)
GeoffistophelesHaha! I had a thought that one kill with one headshot might work! I appreciate the solution going up. Also, the mod in question is called Continuous Misery in English.

So when you say let the rest kill themselves, do you mean others in the squad, or using the radiation status to make them attack everyone else?

The AllslayerUgh, that mod is almost impossible to get.

JarheadwayneSounds like Nyx is the Warframe to use. I'll give it a shot when I get home tonight and let everyone know.
Posted by Jarheadwayne on 28 Oct 15 at 19:32
OneChicago51Sounds like using Vor is the way to go zap him and make him attack everything then zap him again. If that's the case maybe "Rifle Aptitude" would be good to use too for 15% more status chance for rifles while being invisible the whole time. Unless Vor attacks things if you're not close? He hasn't lived long enough for me to ever notice.

Mr Yacso how about we get a team of 4 together and try this out?
Posted by Mr Yac on 28 Oct 15 at 20:51
Geoffistopheles15% doesn't give nearly enough for anything useful. I'm struggling to even get the radiation proc on him at a 70% chance on the Quanta Vandal, so I think I need to switch it up to something that's per bullet.

PhoxThank you so much for this. I used amprex with that mod, got the radiation to 16.5. Then used loki with 20 second invis and tons of health and shield. Went in and out solo until I got a low amount of enemies (127) . I went around every room activating lasers. At first to narrow the enemy count I used the amprex but as time goes on people get to low. Use lokis disarm and stand above or near lasers and let the enemies kill themselves.

KnastchefQuanta have too much power. i did this again right now with amprex(Continuos Misery,Thermite Rounds,High Voltage and Rifle Aptitude)inside 47% status chanse 16,5 radiation damage. just one in the group need a kill, but headshot. sorry for my bad americanish;)
Posted by Knastchef on 28 Oct 15 at 23:27
OLOTDo you think this method is doable without Continuos Misery MOD? Also, do you just throw the proc on VOR, or "everyone" since the damage output is so low?
Posted by OLOT on 29 Oct 15 at 00:24
PhoxI'd just buy it off someone if I were you. Helps a lot and I found two people selling it for 5p.
Posted by Phox on 29 Oct 15 at 00:53
OneChicago51Well radial disarm does not add to your kills in the progress page when they kill each other. 4 people as Loki with all energy siphon and irradiating disarm mod will keep them fighting the whole time. Going to try that tonight.

thunderforce3i not sure how vor attacks the enemies, tried lt night and he does nothing to them, have a session latter so I provide more details then
Posted by thunderforce3 on 29 Oct 15 at 10:27
OneBad15Been working on this for a while. The shield gaurdians are the worst part and it is easy to get an accidental non-headshot kill. radial disarm will kill them as it seems to do about 499 damage if you are too close. I can not get consistent headshots on them either.
Posted by OneBad15 on 29 Oct 15 at 11:31
Jarheadwayne@OneBad15, I was having the same problem as you, Radial Disarm almost always killed those guys. I used Overextended (I think that's the one) to lower my power. I haven't used it though.

I tried using Nyx, and she does not work. Kills using Chaos add to your kill counter.
Posted by Jarheadwayne on 29 Oct 15 at 14:34
OneBad15@Jarheadwayne, I got the pattern down with using radial disarm with the syndicate mod. I would use invisibility (27 seconds) to get them bunched up so that the other enemies would attack the shield guardians quickly, you only get one chance and then you need Vor or kite them to another enemy. I used the Amprex a few times as the solution suggests on Vor but not much. I also used a max Despair to get easy headshots when needed.

Chris ScarceThe mod in question continuous misery instead of farming it. you can transmute 4 mods and hope you get it, took me a number times before i got it. yet to try mission though as i don't have the key.

FalconGR LIVECount me in for doing this guys! I have a Paris bow rdy to do some head shots ;)
Posted by FalconGR LIVE on 29 Oct 15 at 19:31
PhoxGuys listen you don't even need the mod that puts radiation on your disarm. Literally find a room with a lot of lasers and disarm the enemies, jump on top of lasers or crouch below them and just let the enemies kill themselves. I got at least 90 of my 127 enemies killed this way. Those shield hover bot things will fly into the lasers as well. Use loki to go invisible at any point needed and save revives. If you die at like 20 kills don't revive. Restart so you aren't wasting them, I wait till i had about 30 kills left to even use a revive. On the last 4 enemies I actually ended up needing 3 revives trying to kite them into lasers because the lasers killed me.

jc coldingCan i use Specter consumable or does it void the ach?
Posted by jc colding on 30 Oct 15 at 08:38
thunderforce3Here is a few tips I got from experimenting yesterday. This is easier done solo and you have more control of the situations. I used loki prime, ratka ballistica, amprex (max continous misery, max high voltage, max malignant force and unmaxed wildfire) and got radiation to 13.5. I would agreed with the other comments to keep quitting the game until you get an enemy count between 125-130. Get your 1 headshot early on in the game. Focus on using the amprex on the corrupted bombards and heavy gunners to take out the other enemies. Don't use the amprex on Vor and the bomards/heavy gunners as Vor will damage them and you need them more than Vor to help you take out the enemies. Use Vor to take out the lower tier enemies faster. Try to amprex the bombards/heavy gunners near the shield nullifiers to take them out as those are the most annoying to deal with. It is extremely important that you explore the entire area and activate all the lasers in the area as that is what will take out the majority of the enemies. The amprex should be used mostly in areas where there are no lasers. Now what saved me is that there is a hidden treasure room in the void that is full of lasers. This is the room the has mid and high level lasers that can easily take out the flying drones (and other enemies). You can lure the drones and nullifiers using loki disguise with ease (I personally had the drones as the last enemies to deal with) in this room. You should go into this with 4 revives stocked on health, shield, and energy reserves. The reason solo is easier is that you do have full control but more importantly if you do mess up early you can quit and still save the key. Also if you fail the mission attempting this solo you will also save the key not matter the time duration. However if you play as a team and attempt this you WILL LOSE THE KEY after 5 minutes of play unless the entire team uses all there revives. You will not save the key even if you quit after 5 minutes of play as a team. I'm not sure if you will get the achievement if you die and the others members successfully extract. I do know you don't get the end reward if you die and the others extract on any exterminate

If you attempt this on a team I would suggest to use a loki, gmag, nyx (preferably prime so you can get energy from the orbs). You can only use Nyx mind control ONCE on any enemy and the kill will not count against you, however if you use it again on the same it will count as a kill. I would max the duration and range on Nyx and use the mind control Augment from the syndicate to take full advantage of this, however you need to keep track of the enemies you use this ability on. I used this on the heavy gunners and bombards and it works wonders on the other enemies then used the amprex as usual to finish of the rest. Mag is useful as you can use greedy pull to pull the enemies near the lasers and take them out quicker. You could use limbo (banish) in combination with Nyx and Mag abilities so they are not injured as they draw the enemies near the lasers or mind control them. Any other frame my prove to be more of a liablity then help.

T1TANMONKEYIrradiating Disarm got me through this solo,the only enemy I shot was the headshot kill,other than that I used my Primary only to pull individual enemy's into lasers whilst invisible as they follow your gunfire.
Took a good hour this way and you have to be careful not to use Irradiating Disarm on an unshielded drone as it's an almost guaranteed kill.

Doktor Brun"I used loki prime, ratka ballistica, amprex (max continous misery, max high voltage, max malignant force and unmaxed wildfire) and got radiation to 13.5."

I just thought I'd mention the build I used while the frame is the same since Loki Prime is still the most useful the weapons are set-up a tad differently, maybe it can be of use.

Main: Amprex (2 Forma) -- I had it at this level anyway but you don't necessarily HAVE to do it just for the sake of the achievement.

Mods: High Voltage, Vile Acceleration, Sinister Reach, Rifle Ammo Mutation, Thermite Rounds, Continuous Misery, Rifle Aptitude, Hush (All Maxed). The reason I have the amprex set up like this is so you can fire it off at enemies from a greater distance while invisible plus the silent effect from Hush makes it so they don't start firing in your direction. It also has a Status Proc chance of 89.3% so you just have to tap it lightly most times to trigger the Radiation effect.

Also I swapped out the Rakta Ballistica for a Lex Prime instead as there were times when down to the last enemy in an area and if you use the former it's possible that you run the risk of setting off the Viral explosion effect.

Everything else though is spot on though. smile

Snitty 1Can anybody tell me what I was doing wrong as when we tried to do this I could give the radiation effect to normal enemies but not Vor. Do I just need to set the Amprex up with more radiation? Also is there anyway to get Vor to leave you alone?
Posted by Snitty 1 on 10 Nov 15 at 16:40
scrappy1986mexi used loki the rakta and glaxion on solo i used rakta for the first kill headshot and just kept invisible and took my time used lasers to my advantage to get the kills down and used lokis disarm on big groups i found it easier going straight to exstraction and working back vor actually glitch out on me but if your useing vor to your advantage shoot at his waist it glows yellow and i used rakta for the last head shot kill the main thing is to just take your time i found the glaxion alot better than amrprex with higher status chance 93% While amprex was only 50 or 60% mod i used was hammer shot high voltage thermite rounds and rifle aptitude all maxed if any one needs these mods message me on xbox live i have plenty
Posted by scrappy1986mex on 18 Nov 15 at 00:18
Quintett FeuerI just did this and you CAN kill Vor and the flying drones without "headshotting" them and still get the achievement. I didn't even use a gun except to kill Vor and the drones that were still there at the end. I stood up at an area at the top of a room where the enemies could not get me, spammed decoys at the bottom of the room to lure enemies into the laser, and disarmed any new enemies that spawned in. It was pretty simple.
