I think it matters where you hit them. My oddball kills are always 1 hit kills...

I was hitting them in the side and then I hit a guy in the chest. It always used to kill them. Are you saying to try to hit them in the head?

This is an achievement guide; not an achievement trading thread (clicky).

Never tried it or knew of that. I always hit right in the back. But anyway, I am just saying I hit the guy once in the chest at two different times and it didn't kill him. I think you should put a note underneath the achievement saying "It may matter where you hit them, as some people have said they did not kill the enemy with one hit."
Just an idea.

What's the best mode to play if you're trying to go for the flag achievements to ensure you get a high frequency of Legendary maps? Is it DLC Big Team? Or is better to go for one of the social lists instead (so the team sizes are smaller)?

I only ask as all I've ever played is Slayer + Rumble pit.

Yea No Problem, i still don't understand why they fast forward through the part of obtaining the ghost, considering that's one of the biggest parts, lol.

Still it gives people the basic gist though.

I don't think that that guy is from Bungie because I thought bungie was located in Oregon or something and his location sates that he's in tennessee. But oh well it doesn't matter.

I have noticed that oddball kills are NOT one hit kills anymore unless you're assassinating someone, which is hard, because you have the waypoint on your head.

Multiple times I"ve attempted this and it has taken two at a minimum. The achievement would be cake if they didn't change it.

Now i've got all the new achievements, i thought i'd give some tips on how to get them.

Flag Dropped: We'll assume you're on Avalanche as thats the only legendary match with flags, your best chance of getting this achievement is by getting the rockets via the teleporter in your base, then going back to your base and camping next to the flag but just out of sight of anyone who comes to pick it up, then you can just one shot kill them when they pick it up.

Defend This: The best way to do this legtimately is to crouch through the teleporter in their base, kill anyone there and go back through the teleporter and stay crouched a little behidn where you come out so as soon as the other team run through the teleporter *BAM* assassination and achievement unlocked.

Alas, Poor Yorick: This isn't too hard as a majority of games just boost the achievement, but it's worth going in with a tactic, your best bet is to not go for it straight away, get a good power weapon like the rocket launcher and more importantly get the bubble shield, then kill off anyone currently gunning for the oddball and throw the bubble shield down over the oddball, so you can't be attacked from range and get your melee kills.

Look Both Ways: This achievement requires a great deal of patience, my friend and i both got sprees of 4 many times before finally getting the 5th. Avalanche is a great map to get it on as there are lots of targets all pre-occupied with flags/territories/bombs and there's a ghost. It can take over half the game to take this achievement as you will need to measure the chances of you getting a splatter and getting out without getting a kill before making a move, your best spots for easy splatters are the opponent's teleporter cliff, some people choose it to snipe/laser from meaning they aren't looking at the large red dot flying towards them on their radar. The other spot is the middle of the map where the shotgun spawns, just hiding out of sight down the hill then when the corridor fills up, boost through and out the other side.

Road Rage: This is a fairly straightforward achievement, invite a friend to your party and search for DLC big team slayer until you get avalanche, then just take it in turns driving each other in warthogs until you get your 5 kills.

The double kill and assassination achievements are simple enough not to warrant a guide, if you're really stuck get a friend/guest in your match and boost with them.

Good Luck!

Hey guys, when the Mythic Map Pack comes out, whenever it does, I'm going to go on a MAD hunt for the skulls. Will they be in Forge? If so then I'll find them, film the locations, and post all six on my file share. So check my File Share about a few days after it comes out. Someone else will probably find them before me but that's ok. You'll know that I will have them on my share.

It took me two hits for the oddball melee kills, just depends on where you hit them i guess.

oddball kills are always one hit except on Ranked Team Doubles.

FROM BUNGIE.NET
Team Doubles
Team Oddball (13.8%) - Hold the oddball for points. First team to 150 points wins. Players spawn with Assault Rifles. Ball Carrier Traits: 75% walking speed, 50% damage. 10 minute match time limit.

The 50% damage is referring to the oddball, making it a two hit kill on that specific playlist. All other mentions of oddball do not state damage stats as it is a one hit kill (i.e. Lone Wolves, Multi-Team, DLC FFA, etc.)

I wonder if Bungie will be nasty and have the skulls appear at random spots.

Question: for Lightswitch, I know it takes 50 EXP to get to it. Does that have to be on one type of game or can it be cumulative...10 on Lone Wolves, 10 on Big Team, and so on (totalling 50). Thanks.
