Going by the list that has been given to the public, this one:
http://www.bungie.net/images/News/Inline10/070910/640x480.jpg

In the 3rd row, 3rd from the right there is an achievement with a skunk on it. Now, I'm really curious to figure out what this one is all about. Is it an achievement that is supposed to be similar to the "steak-tacular" medal that represents the win by 15 kills in a slayer variant (check bungie.net for reference).

Now I'm very curious to ask everyone that reads this to answer: what you think it is?
I don't care how obsure or crazy it might sound, I want to know if any of our guesses are close when the full list comes out.

Feel free to stick any funny ones you come up with too, just please tell us your not serious for the sake of the rest of us. :woop:

Maybe there is a weapon that, when fiered, smells and you need to get a kill with that weapon.

According to Urban Dictionary.com:

"skunked
1. To defeat overwhelmingly, especially by keeping from scoring."

Looks pretty relevant to me.

The one on the right of the skunk totally looks like lightweight

grunts breathe methane out of their tanks, methane smells bad so maybe they're connected.....

I assumed that row of achievement tiles was level specific achievements. As the roaw above seems to be multiplayer, the top row is difficulty and weapon, the bottom is for each level, and the fourth row appears to be for fire fight.

Maybe you have to find a skunk in a level? Similar to like in Wolverine when you find the WOW sword, or the Monkey family in Halo 3 (I know there wasn't an achievement for it but is just an example of an easter egg).

Yeah, I agree. If you stop the elites from taking the first set of objectives in Invasion, it says 'skunked'. I assume this is the achievement, simply skunking the elites once.

Yeah, you get a medal that looks like that when you stop the elites from getting to the first objective in Invasion.

Yea i think it will be for keeping the elites from getting the objective in invasion.

Im pretty curious about why the level achievements start from 2, or is that just like the 1st "level" in Halo 3.

I think it has to do with invasion

I have a feeling the 1st level is a training level, like Call of Duty and Gears of War have. Halo 3 had an opening cinematic that counted as a level (though it was level 0 I guess).

Confirmed on Bungie weekly update - it relates to the Invasion gametype and you have to prevent the Elites from opening up the first section.

Even though Bungie's infamous for multiplayer achievements, I really enjoy hunting for them. I'm sure there are going to be some fun achievements in Reach, and based on these pictures, I'm sure they'll be fun.

There is an achievement for swapping your weapon with a covenant in versus firefight.

It is most likely the one that appears fifth from the top, although I don't know why they would have a DMR, since your playing as an Elite.
