RNG Achievements (Best Way)

Infamous RNG achievements that makes everyone go mad. “Murphy’s Law” is almost as bad but can luckily, be cheesed using a HUD mod. So what is this way or method that I want to share? Well, when there is a group of players going for the same achievement, they would usually play together right? But instead, for these 4 achievements, I say, split up!

“But why?” I hear someone ask. You see, when playing together in a game, that would count as 1 attempt, to rolling for the specific wanted RNG or scenario.

But when split up, that changes to making 4 attempts within the same amount of time. More or less. So with 4 players split up, we have 4 times the chance, to roll for that perfect RNG.

And when that happens, the player with the winning ticket so to speak, will “pause” their progress and invite everyone else in, to complete the achievement. Of course, for this to happen, one important criteria must be met, which thankfully, is the case for the big 4. The achievement itself, must not require to “Play From the Start”. A lesser criteria I might add, is that each player must be able to handle themselves going solo. “Guessing Game” and probably “Blood Diamond”, requires one to solo stealth, and for Garage Escape, to solo in loud.

Not too much to ask for hopefully. And so, with this simple concept of divide and conquer, we can multiply our chances for that perfect RNG. Let’s go into more details for each achievement. The “Guessing Game” achievement, though not bound by difficulty, is best done on Normal for the least amount of guards.

For this, what each player will aim for, is to cut any two powerboxes without using the computer, and without the alarm going off. Statistically, it’s a very low 5% chance, so just keep trying! And once we encounter this rare unicorn, we “pause” our progress by hiding somewhere safe, like behind a chair in the big conference room, or on the outside. While waiting for the rest to join, do not, I repeat, do not open up the server room doors as guards will find it suspicious, and call for the alarm.

Just patiently wait ’til everyone is in before going for the server, and don’t forget our ECMs! The highest probability for the Blood Diamond to spawn, is 20% on Mayhem and above, checked only when the vault is opened. That means we can’t cheese it with a HUD mod like with Murphy’s law. And once a lucky player discovers an extra door at the far end, everyone else can start joining in. The achievement is awarded only upon securing the Blood Diamond, so just make sure that everyone has spawned into the game before doing so. For “Boom, Headshot!

Other than the shooting part, it boils down to pure luck. After triggering the 25% chance for the weapons lab, instead of heading in immediately, we’ll wait in the main hall while the rest joins in. This is to prevent enemies from hitting the mannequins with a stray bullet. Once all players are in the game, head right in and prepare to shoot. I recommend to first pick a target each by pointing with a laser, and to agree on firing at the same time, like “Shoot at 2:15” gametime.

Here’s how it looked like in my recent stream. And the last achievement in this video, Garage Escape with 8 bags. Players with the Armoured Transport DLC will play on the Transport Harbour heist, recommended on Overkill to be guaranteed at least 3 trucks. I’ll choose to restart if I find gold because they are really heavy and tedious to work with. And don’t forget to take out the 4 civilians at the start for a higher chance to get an escape.

Players without the DLC, will play on the Nightclub heist, again on Overkill, while hoping for at least 8 bags and the Garage Escape. Taking out civilians won’t work here though so just focus on the safes. And once we have a lucky winner *DING DING DING*, wait at the briefing screen for everyone to join in, before starting the escape.

Moving the 8 bags shouldn’t be a hassle as long as we use the shortcuts, just don’t forget to bring a saw or some shaped charges. And that’s the Unknown Knight method, to better farm the 4 infamous RNG achievements.
