Is there sth. wrong with the newest achievement

Today this game updated and add new achievement:KringleJammer.
I played it 30+ times and at last defeat wave 7,but didn't display the achievement unlocked Pop-up tab.
Then I found it unlocked in Library Page,but doesn't unlocked in achievement stats page and doesn't display in my history page.

It looks like just unlocked in local,but didn't update the data in server.
Does any one have same problem with me?

Yeah same here. Seems like that's what is happening right now. Not sure if that's because the update just went out and right now they were just doing a test version of it, or if there is something else wrong. I know Beat Hazard had an achievement and the devs said that they were just testing it so it wouldn't count until the final release was pushed.

Guess we'll just have to wait and find out.

Looks like you just need to start up a regular campaign mission and then everything will register. Try that and see what happens.

Oh, yes, it works!
Thank you very much.

The Christmas achievement did not unlock for me. However, your tip worked for the achievement called "Long November".

And I don't get how you can get the kringle bomb: I try to hover over the icon and sometimes I get it, sometimes I don't.

I did the mission but it just didn't unlock for me. The tip posted also didn't help me out.

Just got to wave 13 on my first try. Had to start a normal campaign and finish the first mission to get the achievement to pop.

Some tips:

- Control the speed of the game with the + and - keys. But note that the kringle bomb pickups are not affected by this setting so you will need to speed the game up in order to catch them. The line coming out of the bottom of your helicopter needs to intersect the bomb to pick it up.

- Try to save all of your kringle bombs for the large zeds that are not harmed by bullets.

- The machine gun works best when shooting at enemies inside the circle around your helicopter. Just sweep the mouse cursor over groups of enemies to shoot them.

Well I can confirm at least for me the achievement does NOT work. I have gone through the thing TWICE and it never popped up. Not even after going into a normal campaign. So... yeah. I'm really annoyed.

Yea the achievement didn't pop up for me when I finished the 7th wave. Had to start a campaign (short, casual) and sped it up to 300% to finish the map inside a minute or so. Then the achievement popped up.

As you can't save in this mod (when going out with Quit & Save and then clicking on Contiune Campaign it starts a standard one ... at least for me) you have to beat it yourself.

The tip of slowing down the speed helps a lot. Another thing to make it a bit easier is to let the survivors be reduced by zombies in the first two waves to have later less people to protect.

Confirmed: The achievement pops up in the Steam overlay after beating the 7th wave, then beating a level in a new campaign.

Note: Getting the achievement and exiting the game will only show in "Recent Achievements" and not your actual list of personal achievements.

Thanks, I beat wave 9 and started another campaign and did one mission, and it unlocked!

Hey all,

I just uploaded a new Atom Zombie Smasher update. It should fix this problem of the achievement not updating correctly.

The update is now live. Please let me know if the achievement is not being displayed correctly. Thanks!
