Halo: Reach DLC Achievement Guide

Halo: Reach DLC Achievement Guide

Noble Map Pack and Defiant Map Pack Guide

Achievement Overview
+ Total number of achievements: 10
+ Total number of offline achievements: 0
+ Type of achievements: DLC Achievements (download only, 1600 points for both packs)
+ Total time to attain all collectable achievements: roughly 2 or 3 hours max
+ DLC Content Name(s): Noble Map Pack and Defiant Map Pack
+ Glitched achievements known: Totally Worth It can be a little buggy in terms of the medals being awarded to the player, the achievement is known to be fine.

Can I get these achievements without the DLC downloaded? No you cannot.

* please note that the defiant map pack achievements are not yet listed in this thread but will be in the future when I get round to adding them in *

Totally Worth It - 50
Noble 1: Earn a Double Kill from the Grave in multiplayer Matchmaking.

Earning a double kill from the grave is something that doesn't happen very much. The key to getting this achievement is to make sure that you time your actions right and also having low health when you go into the battle will ensure that you'll die faster so you'll be dead when you get the kills. The easiest way by far to get this is in multi team. With lots of enemies about, you just need to time your grenade throw right. Additionally a playlist like Big Team Battle or Invasion can be other good playlists for this achievement.

Both Barrels - 50
Noble 1: Earn a Double Kill with the shotgun in multiplayer Matchmaking.

As long as you're in the right place at the right time, make sure you have a shotgun fully reloaded and ready. Using corners to your advantage is best when down to this achievement. The Living Dead playlist is probably the best playlist to go into when trying to get this. Usually you can probably get several double kills with the shotgun per game. Swordbase is a particularly good map for this.

Cross-Mappin' - 50
Noble 1: Kill a player at long range with the DMR in a matchmade Slayer game.

For this achievement you must make sure that when you get the kill, your cross hair isn't red. The best playlist and map to get this on is Hemorrhage whilst playing Big Team Slayer in the Big Team Battle playlist. Be sure that the enemy doesn't have anywhere to hide and regain health, which will make it easier for you. There are multiple ledges in many maps which have a perfect view across maps, so be sure to time your shots and make sure you have a good line of fire.

You Ate All the Chips - 42
Noble 1: Collect all of the flags in a matchmade Stockpile game.

Quite a hard achievement this one. Needs to be done in any playlist that allows Stockpile gametype, but for reassurance Team Objective is the playlist to be in. You have to capture all flags that respawn on the map in a single countdown, you don't have to bring them all back and score yourself. There are 4 flags within a single countdown round in stockpile they all must be captured before the timer resets. Once completed, unlocks for the whole team.

Thanks and credit for helping goes to; Shinobi273

You Blew it Up! - 13
Noble 1: Blow up the research facility in a matchmade Invasion game on Breakpoint.

Give it time and it'll come. This must be done in an Invasion game on the map Breakpoint in the Invasion playlist. You must complete the first phase, then move onto the second phase. The second phase requires the elites to bring a bomb that is to be detonated in research facility. Upon completely this phase (phase two) the achievement unlocks for the whole team.

Thanks and credit for helping goes to; Shinobi273

Poppin' & Lockin' - 25
Noble 1: Destroy a vehicle using Armor Lock in a matchmade game.

Any playlist which provides armor lock and a vehicle such as a Ghost is best for this achievement. Most players don't tend to try and splatter nowadays because it's expected that armor lock will be used however playing a game of slayer in the Big Team Battle playlist is the best option. Open and spaced out maps such as Hemorrhage are best for this type of achievement and you have to kill the player whilst they are in a vehicle, (obviously blowing up the vehicle at the same time), easy.

Offensive Driver - 20
Noble 1: Earn a kill in a matchmade Rocket Race game.

Earning a kill in a matchmade Rocket Race game is actually easier than you may first think, however you'll need to play the Multi Team playlist and try and get the Rocket Hog Race game on Hemorrhage. Best done whilst operating the rocket gun on the back of the vehicle however if you get out of the Warthog you should have enough time to try and get a shot before you are warped back into the Warthog.

Because the vehicles cannot be destroyed if someone is in them, you'll need to first try and tip another teams Warthog, best done when using the back rocket gun, then finishing them off when they fall out of the vehicle. It's not too difficult to get a kill and you only need one. You can also splatter them rather than shooting them and it'll still count.

Thank you for reading my achievement guide and I hope it has proven useful to those who still need the achievements. I may try get some videos up with the thread as videos detailing how to get the achievements are probably better.

If you have any questions feel free to reply to this thread and I'll be updating this thread when more information is given/I find anything more out about the achievements. Please bump the thread often as well so it can help more people.

You Ate All the Chips - 42G
Noble 1: Collect all of the flags in a matchmade Stockpile game.

Stockpile is in the team objective playlist. There are 4 flags on the map. When boosting, collect all the flags but do not score them (it is almost impossible to get all 4 before the scoring timer runs out). Once you have all 4 nearby, make sure you have some time on the clock and put all 4 in the score area. Achievement unlocks for the entire team once all 4 flags are scored at one time. Flags placed by opposing team still count.

You Blew it Up! - 13G
Noble 1: Blow up the research facility in a matchmade Invasion game on Breakpoint.

Invasion playlist on Breakpoint. The Elites are assaulting, the first objective is KotH type and spawns a bomb upon completion. The second objective is assault type where the Elites need to plant the bomb. The entire team gets the achievement when the bomb explodes.

Nice guide, i think the easiest way to get Totally Worth It - 50G
will be in the multiteam playlist. If you get elite slayer you can usually tag someone with a stickie before they kill you and you have a chance of a random player being near by. I hope to try this tonight.

Thanks for the tid bits. Over all these do not seem that difficult. Only the stockpile "You ate all the chips" one was confusing to me. the same person needs to collect all 4 flags, right? Can your team bring the flags to just outside and have one person put them all in the circle?

I'm pretty sure you just have to collect them as a team, not an individual

It doesn't matter who puts the flags in, and the whole team gets the achievement. I just got it playing for real, but I second trying to get all the flags together outside of the ring before putting them all in, especially if the timer's almost out and you don't have them all yet. So you don't have to recollect the flags you already have. The biggest problem is going to be enemies juggling all of your flags out of the ring at the last second just to stop you from scoring.

Quite a hard achievement this one. Needs to be done in any playlist that allows Stockpile gametype, but for reassurance Team Objective is the playlist to be in. Your team, not you specifically has to capture all flags that are present on the map at one time. This is best done on Powerhouse as there is only 4 flags available at one time making it easy to score. Flags that are within the enemy territory from a previous round also still count as flags.
That is wrong.

Stockpile as a gametype has 4 flags, it isn't map dependant. Also you misunderstood what I said about enemies. I meant that if an enemy puts a flag in your score area, it will count for the achievement. It doesn't matter how it happens, as long as all 4 flags are scored at once, the achievement unlocks. I said that to emphasize that you do not need to personally score all 4 flags to get the achievement.

This one will be pretty hard if not boosted. From time to time people come off the mongoose for various reasons. You should be able to assassinate someone quickly if they attempt to run off or flip a mongoose. I would imagine that running them over may work as well but it will not kill them if they are facing you. Must be done in the Multi Team playlist.
This is wrong. When you're on the mongoose you are invincible but as soon as you fall off you are vulnerable to damage. I was playing Rocket Race earlier with my brother and I managed to get it just by knocking a team off of their mongoose and then shooting another rocket to get a kill. My brother even managed to get a kill with the actual mongoose.

So as long as they aren't in a mongoose, they can be killed by a rocket. It's quite easy really, the hardest part is actually getting people to vote for Rocket Race.

EDIT: I believe you need to be on your own mongoose to get the kill as well. I fired a couple of rockets at them whilst I was on the ground and it wasn't until the game automatically put me back on our mongoose that I managed to get a kill.

Tips for Cross- Mappin'

Me and a friend just got it on the Big Team Slayer playlist, map: Paradiso.
We sat on top of the mountain and trying to get the achievement. My friend got it from a DMR kill on a player, crosshair was blue. I got it from shooting a Banshee down with my DMR (killing the player), crosshair was also blue. So it's also possible to get it from destroying vehicles.

Mountain on Paradiso is a good place to get the achievement

to boost the grave kills achievement i think its best to boost.
one person (going for the achievement) has a rocket and the 2 sacrificial players stand next to each other.
a fair distance is required so that the person going for the achievement can shoot the rocket while the sacrificial lamb headshots him with a snipe and thn the rocket will explode on the 2 people, getting a double kill from the grave

Wrong, even though most of the achievements can be unlocked on any map, you still need to purchase the DLC to have access to them.

A good strategy is also if you can get the sniper to snipe someone in the body from a long distance and then switch to the DMR to just kill them real quick, since most of the time when i start shooting people with the DMR from that far, they usually can find cover before i can take them out.

For "Totally Worth It" i'd recommend adding a suggestion for either Elite Slayer (IN Team Slayer) or Invasion (as an Elite and especially on Boneyard) as that is pretty much where i've always achieved that in the past in the very first Phase inside the territories and both have Elites start with Plasma Grenades which improve the chance of getting it greatly.

A lot of close quarters action with desperate fighting from the Spartan's trying to clear out Elites is perfect for a lucky stick since most of the Spartan players are so focused on defending that they will wrecklessly rush in to get you out of the Territory..

Has anyone had any luck getting Invasion Breakpoint to come up?? Does it come up in the DLC playlist at all?

That would be the best place for it, can't seem to find enough people in Invasion playlist that have the DLC for it to pop up.

Only once have I had a DLC come up but it was under Team Objective (Anchor 9)

No it's not under the DLC playlist. You can check what appears on Bungie.net under Active Playlists. Unless you visit the Achievement Trading Thread and request some boosting partners, the only other way is continuing to try Invasion and hoping that the 11 people you end up with all have it AND vote for it.

With my luck by the time I get it to come up I'll have a crap team and we'll get Skunk'd...

try to get a party together where everyone has the DLC, even if its not the full 12 people it leaves less room for a non-DLC player to get matched in (breakpoint obviously wont show up unless everyone in the group has the DLC)
