The description says "Worked on 5 fortifications in one deployment" but clearly I don't know what they mean. Is one deployment a game of horde or is it a round? I have played more than 3 games of horde and definitely spent money on 5 fortifications in one round more than 3 times as well but 3 is all the engineer ribbons I have.

Does "worked on" mean something specific? Does it have to be repair or built from scratch or what? Or is this ribbon just glitchy?

Repair or build any five things during one thirty-second phase between waves in Horde.

It's 5 fortifications before a wave.

It's a wave. Build / repair 5 things in one wave.

But a catch; seems you can only get a Combat Engineer ribbon once every 10 waves.

Or if you die and restart.

I've built/repaired 5 things in one round lots of times and not gotten the ribbon. It's either glitchy or more specific than that.

Only 1 every 10 rounds, okay that makes sense then. That's pretty lame though, gonna be a pain to rack up 100 of those for the ammo mutator.

Have friendly fire on(if unlocked).
Insane Difficulty - Wave 1 on Checkout
Have one person give the other all their money.
Buy a command post.
Buy nearest turret.
Have one person fire the turret and the other constantly tap Y to reload.
When the actual wave starts have one person down the other and just wait for an enemy to kill the other person.
Rinse and repeat.

*You can only get one Combat Engineer ribbon per wave.
