Meta-Games: Tips, Discussion and Help Thread

Thanks to Xyjar for the screencaps. This info can be found on Bungie's website also.

Check this link for some good tips from Bungie about the meta-game scoring. They recommend Heroic difficulty with at least one skull turned on, two will help even more.

Points are earned based on the time it took you to finish the level. You also get points for stylish kills such as heashots. Dieing gives you negative points while killing other teammates in coop also gives you negative points. Finding skulls also gives you points.

actually, points are earned by activating skulls, not finding them

I found that playing with normal difficulty and 4 skulls on makes getting points real easy.

Really!? There are a couple of levels that still give me fits. I thought going the easy route wouldn't give you anything for points. I'll give it a try.

The only level that gave me trouble was Cortana, but largely because I keep getting lost in that level. Personally I think the Normal diff. + 3-4 skulls does the trick, but whatever works for you.

Yeah I also did all my Meta game achievements on Normal, mostly with

- Fog
- Catch
- Famine
- Tough Luck
- (Tilt)
- (Grunt's Birthday Party )

I don't think trying to get the points on easy makes sense, it actually has a 0.25x Multiplier... And the levels aren't too hard on normal anyway.

You could play with someone else, 1 person just stands back well the person going for the achievement gets all the kills, that way if he dies he just respawns and does not have to load the last save.

Makes things quicker.

Ive looked everywhere for the answer, where exactly do you start a "meta-game" and is it co-op or single player?

As it says in the first post, play on Heroic and turn on some skulls.

If people are having some trouble with Heroic difficulty (highly unlikely but it happens) try it on Normal using the Iron and Mythic skulls. Go careful because of the Iron skulls effects and if you complete it at a reasonable time, your bonus multiplier could be something like 12.5x.

Are you seriously giving this guy a hard time for taking time out of his day to help others? Everyone pays different and has different stregths and weaknesses. pants shouldn't have to try and guess for each one of us. there would be too many different variations of the skulls to go with. If you review the thread you'd see whats worked for everyone else varies. try one of theirs!

The info on the first post is useful in figuring out which ones you want to use.

You should easily get all the meta game achievements on normal with those 4.

If you can't, use heroic.

I have only used 2 skulls (famine and fog) on normal for the first four levels and it works easily. Just make sure you complete the level in less than 30 minutes (at least a 2x) and have more than 7500 points at the end and its in the bag. With these two on you hardly even notice a difference in the gameplay compared to when there are no skulls activated.

Just kill everyone you can and try to not let your men steal the kills worth a lot of points. Oh and use your melee attack a lot, it helps you through the level a lot quicker. Dont die. I got over 20,000 points on each of the first four levels with these skulls, not as much as other people i know, but comfortable, and good enough to get the achievements.

You would have to sign up on the leaderboards. Once your GT is on the list, the site should pull the scores off your GT when you play. You meet the requirement of 100 posts and 1 Month membership. (I think it is 1, it might be 2 but you have it regardless. Just sign up.
