Overkill & Two For One (Ranked FFA) Advice

So I jumped back into Halo 3 to try to clean up the remaining achievements, but I believe I am going to fall just short of 100% completion.

The Overkill and Two For One achievements must be done in Lone Wolves, as it is the only ranked FFA playlist in Matchmaking. I think that it is a lot harder to get these two achievements now compared to when Halo 3 first came out. I say that, because me being a 40 in Lone Wolves does not make things easy when I am matching high level players lol. It is mostly only the hardcore Halo 3 gamers that roam the ranked playlists now and the majority of the high level Lone Wolves players are very decent and competitive.

I think I will just try a couple of games a night or something and see what happens. Who knows, maybe a lucky situation will come up eventually. I just see these two achievements being pretty hard to get nowadays, but any advice would be greatly appreciated.

These two achievements would be difficult to boost. Not only do you have to find multiple players within your Lone Wolves rank, but you also need to match them while searching within the playlist (which would seem easier now due to the low player population). I should've went for these while Halo 3 was hot, but I never did and now I am stuck on 1740

You can always do the language preference trick to get matched up. I did it a few months back to get the majority of my missing FFA achievements.

I'm ranked around 40 in FFA and just need a Overkill. I'm down to get a party going.

That there a few players that actually play halo 3 nowadays is the entire reason why I don't try to get 1750G.
It's hard to get a mongoose splatter for example when there are only good players online even worst when it's FFA.
I still need severall FFA achievements and mythic maps. So I guess I'll stick with my 1500G +

Still If I have the opportunity to get it by boosting then be my guest.

EDIT: I need overkill, Stepping razors, Mongoose mowdown, Killing frenzy.
And for DLC: Look both ways, killtacular, save this film and Pull

The way I see it, overkill's are only obtainable legitimately during an Oddball match when you have the upper hand. But if everyone is keen to try it out, I'm more then up for it. My trueskill rank on Lone Wolves is ~41.

I got mine out of pure luck more than anything else, but yeah, oddball is your best shot for Overkill, Killtacular and Extermination.
