I personally played on blood gulch so I could capture the two reactors. I had a tech level of 4 when I did it, I am not sure that helped anything at all though

I think the Scarab does need 4000+ to spawn, as someone said earlier.

I tried for 45 minutes to get it to spawn, every time under 4000. The very first time I had 4k when the reinforcements came - bam, Scarab!

I got everything but One and Done on Chasms as Arbiter v. Cutter first then Regret v. Cutter after that.

For One and Done I was Anders v. Arbiter and built up Sparrowhawks.

I'm kinda pissed though that for 800 pts. we're only getting 100 GS. Points for DLC should be proportional to the GS and content offered, not just milking people for their bloody money >_<.

One thing I did notice though in the main menu screen of Halo Wars: It says there are a total of 58 achievements.....so is Ensemble working on four more?

I'm seriously considering about buying the game but I was wondering, in order to obtain the new achievements, can I get them for free or do I have to pay? Either way, which DLC do I need to download for this?

Thanks.

You have to download the '"Strategic Options'' pack in the Halo Wars DLC to get the new achievements. It costs 800 Microsoft points

i got living loving bug on Tundra. i was prophet and they were anders. got 1 temple and the rest supply pads, then used the waves to take over rebel bases and made them all supply pads. make sure you have skulls on. upgrade the temple to 3, upgrade the prophets beam to three. get everything to go rush the Mega Turret in the middle. once the rebels are dead put an infantr squad inside. now wait for the next wave timer to be about 1:30 or 2:00. when it is one of those fire the turret at your units, not the prophet of regret. then use the beam to kill some more to get you to 20/40 population. wait for the next wave and if you have 3000 recouses it should get it. if not try again but wait for the turret to reacharge.

spent 2 hours trying to get it each time getting around 3500 and i never got a scarab.

I'm starting to think you have to have 4000 but i sure can't figure out how to do that since i had nothing but warehouses and one temple

Were the warehouses upgraded? And you could always try to go for a second/third base.

You have to make sure you have at least 20 slots free in your unit count. Use the Prophet's cleansing beam to do so if need be, and yea it does help if you have over 4000 in supplies. I tried this and it took me about 45 minutes

Great guide, it took me a while to get the scarab though, I ended up getting 3 bases upgraded to citadel, with all blessed warehouses except the temple, where I got all the upgrades besides the Forerunner shield. I found using the Prophet's beam used up too many supplies at lower levels, once it was maxed it killed the units much quicker and seemed easier to get the available pop/resources in time.

Allright, seeing as there are new DLC achievements incoming I hope you won't mind if I just add them to this guide? I don't really think we need two seperate DLC guides, so in order to have less clutter around the forums Il'l just expand the guide here if you guys don't mind.

I played on Fort deen, as prophet of Regret, captured 9 bases with only warehouses and 1 temple and turned the skull on that give you 25% more recources. Got 6000Recources and got a 3-star scarab.

Maybe this helps

Just finished One and Done. Let me tell you, it is the funnest achievement to earn in this game, bar none. I had sooo much fun doing it.

OP is a lie. I tried that method and after one capture I was getting molested very hard. I ended up doing 3v3 on Fort Deen as Anders and spamming Hawks the whole time. Me and my allies were largely disorganized, but the Covenant team was insane. Though, Team Forge was nice enough to heal my Hawks every once in a while whilst I trained other Hawks or focus on my base.

At the very end, the Prophet of Regret team ended up steamrolling the only two bases I had, calling for an emergency retreat to an as-of-yet unclaimed Rebel base. As I was building it, my allies were kind enough to lend me some resources but I finally ended up not needed them because I wound up getting not only the last capture but 3 others as well.

Halfway through, I forgot I had my skulls off... so I fixed that right off. Made everything about 30% easier. All throughout the middle of the map, the Covenant forces were in full control. You couldn't stay in there long at all without dieing.

I learned right at the end that the corner bases are the ones you want to take because enemy AI doesn't go there a lot. Hell the rebel base next to the Covenant base on the far right was undisturbed and same goes for the one on our side. Also, run away from Scarabs unless you have an armada of Hawks to confront it because it is STRONG. That's the main vehicle that took out my bases both times.

If you end up getting to X vs. 4, losing, then you need to focus a lot on taking out the unit who has the flag and much less on ground control. A lot of times, the flag likes to spawn over a chasm, giving your Hawks more time to get it as only Banshees at that point can get it. Once you get to 4 vs. X, just grab the flag and retreat to any extreme corner of the map and wait. No one should bother you, at least, no one did to me, but Team Forge sent over some back up in the form of a Cobra and several small troops.

It's a pain in the ass, but it's worth it.

One question I must ask though... IS HOW THE HELL DID THOSE COVENANT TEAMS GET WRAITHS SOOOOOO FAST? HELL, I didn't even get 4 buildings up and a damn team of Wraiths is already storming around the map.

I remember about 4 or 5 purple ones, and one or two blues. That's all I could see before I ran to save my ass. This was within about 5 minutes. Now keep in mind that in Keepaway, you have to build up your bases so I really don't know.

I just suck at startup, I don't know why.

Ok guys, I know this is an old thread, but ill give this a try.

Halo Waypoint came out today and I am thinking about cleaning up some achievements for Halo Wars. I don't have either of the add ons for this game. do I need to download both them and spend 1600 points on this in order to get all the achievements? Or do I just need to download one of them?

One of the packs is more maps the other is the new gametypes, you only need the gametypes pack to get the acheievements.

Wrong. There are achievements for the maps too. To get the full 1200 you need both downloads. This guide just hasn't added the other achievements.

Great guide, I got all four achievements following this guide!

A couple of things that may help others out. 1) For the one and done achievement, if you haven't picked it up yet, you'll also get penny pincher.
2) I too noticed for the scarab achievement that it appears that you need 4000 supplies before it spawns. I've tried it twice and it worked.
