I'm having trouble getting the "Challenge Accepted" achievement (on Xbox, but this might be on other platforms too)

The text reads:

Challenge Accepted

Completed level 1 of all non-level-specific challenges with a single character

I've done that - every non-level-specific challenge shows at level 2 or higher (most are maxed out) but I still don't have the achievement.

  1. Am I missing something?
  2. Is this achievement glitched in some way?
  3. If (2) then is there any way to fix it?
  • I can confirm that it isn't glitched on PC. It just takes some time to unlock, it seems.

  • Keith, one thing to note about these hidden challenges. They are retroactive, meaning if you've fulfilled the requirements for them, before they are unlocked, you will get the credit for them instantly once they are unlocked! Commented Oct 24, 2012 at 22:23
  • @JamesJiao that's good to know, getting 500 point-blank shotgun kills is proving tedious.

  • Get a shotgun with a large spread (x12 or more), go to a low level area and spread in their faces. Commented Oct 25, 2012 at 0:12
  • @JamesJiao - Yeah, that's just what I'm doing, but running up to level 30 enemies with a level 50 Conference Call 500 times is dull. Still, better than collecting the stupid oil cans/pizza/fish from BL1.

Some may think that the achievement is glitched, but in fact some challenges are unlocked through progress of other challenges, for example:

"Get 200 kills will rocket launcher splash damage" challenge will unlock the "Get 10 direct rocket kills" challenge.

The full list is available at Challenge Accepted Guide.

    People think it's glitched because these hidden challenges didn't actually show up in the list at all. Since a recent update they show up (on PC, anyway) as Undiscovered.
