Mission 14 - The Breaking
Difficulty: Heroic (Co-op Highly Recommended)

After progressing through the mission you'll end up in an area where 3 warden eternals spawns. Before hand make sure your entire team is well suited up with Binary Rifles & Incineration Cannons. If you're attempting this solo, you'll want to command the AI to pick these weapons up off the ground.

Once inside the area kill 1 of the wardens without damaging the other. Now run circles around the outside to trigger a checkpoint. Now coordinate the other 2 wardens to die at the same time by communicating the amount of damage being done with incineration cannons by seeing how many times you "stagger" the wardens. Try to have both wardens at the same stages of damage at all times. If on solo, command the AI to kill one of the wardens, and immediately kill yours as theirs goes down. If in co-op (recommended) just communicate and coordinate your shots to make sure they both go down at the same time. If yours dies first, quickly switch the the Binary Rifle and try to damage the other as quickly as possible. Both wardens must be in their death animation at the same time for the achievement to unlock. Quickly reload the checkpoint if you fail, and don't forget that you can save the checkpoint just in case you trigger the next one!
pompeyladbfpdid this solo very easy. arrive with all 3 AI having incin cannons, and you inciny and beam rifle. get 1st checkpoint after killing one warden and then save checkpoint. then just run about doing equal damage to both from front is ok.. i used 4 snip shots on each, and 2 incin shots on each, picked up new inciny cannon and get AI to target one warden (full team hopefully) then just umnload on the other after you see the red AI target dissapear... you get a good 5 seconds to get the kill as animation is long.

only had to reload checkpoint a few times cause of being killed, and quit game/reload save when one died early and i didnt get kill in time on the other

IXI FalcoNI've done this twice now in solo and no achievement.

First clip is literally a simultaneous kill. I grouped the wardens and they both died at the exact same time via a promethean grenade. Second clip has me killing them 3 seconds apart, but you can clearly see that the death animations are going at the same time.

WTF am I doing wrong? Yes it's on heroic and no the achievement is not stuck on done unlocking.

IXI FalcoNYup, just my bad luck that I went for it at that time. The achievement retroactively popped over night. All good now smile

IXI FalcoNMight as well post this tip here too:

Whether doing this solo or co-op, you can make it way easier by triggering an additional checkpoint by skipping up to the platform the wardens spawn on. Refer to this video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-Nbst_83txk

Basically, kill the first warden, then damage the remaining 2 to just before death. Then do the skip to get up there and run down the hall to get the checkpoint. Saves so much time on retries because now you don't need to weaken them at all once it's set up.

Stevo6483Got this solo last night. took bloody ages tho, the AI are useless. did manage to kill them both a couple of times just outside of the time limit to make them count as 'simultaneous' deaths so knew I could get it right if I worked on my timing. Just chipped away at each of them with Binary and charged IC shots and finally got it!

L4D II JoK3rThe comment from IXI FalcoN about the second checkpoint was pure perfection, I found out what I needed to get them each on to the last phase and then just used the binary rifle from the platform until I got the achievement. Much easier on solo because of the save option and how quickly you can revert / restart checkpoint.

OverChunk143877I think good but maybe too complicated guides... I took the straight approach: I ordered the AI to pickup incineration cannons in the previous room. Ordered them to attack 1 and I took one of the others. 2 wardens were down in about 20 - 30 seconds after the fight started. It took several tries but I didn't hassle with counting the hits or trying to get a checkpoint...

steven2furiousThe warden takes five charged shots from incineraton cannon to kill i done it today on solo just me using the cannons hit each one four times then just fired shots from the cannon and threw two red grenades ( sorry i dont know what there called) i had them both standing together i did notice when hes nears death he screams curse this damed body if that helps anyone.
