METAL FIST DOOM's Gamercard
Defiant Map Pack Achievements File Share

To get the achievements, download these files and play them in a custom game. Use a second controller to get the respective achievements for each game type.

RETURN TO SENDER 30:
In the Custom Game menu, select Game Type and choose 2 Flag Pro (one of the files you downloaded). Under "Map" choose Forge World>Asylum. Once the game starts, you will play as your guest account player. Run forward to the opposite side of the map and pick up the flag that belongs to the opposing team (your main profile). Use your main profile to kill your guest player, then stand close enough to the flag for it to be recovered. Play as your guest account again to repeat this method and the achievement will unlock after you have recovered the flag a second time with your main profile.

*Remember to stand near the flag to recover it. The game will not count a reset (flag left idle then "put back") as a recover*

CRACKIN' SKULLS 45:
In the Custom Game menu select Game Type and choose Oddball (the second file on your screen--the file that is NOT "built in"). Choose Forge World>Asylum as your map (or any other map of your choice). Play as your main profile and locate the skull on the map. Find your guest account player and kill him with the skull (using the melee button of your preferred control layout). If you're unsure of the layout:

Default & Bumper Jumper


Recon


Southpaw


Boxer


Green Thumb
button ("R3")

Find your guest account again and repeat this method two more times. The achievement will unlock after your third skull kill.

*You can try sprinting with your guest account to a location closer to where your main profile is to speed things up (or ask a friend to help with your second controller if possible)*

CANDY FROM A BABY 75:
In the Custom Game menu select Game Type and choose Stockpile (the second file on your screen--the file that is NOT "built in"). Choose Forge World>Asylum as your map (or any other map of your choice). Begin playing as your guest profile and find a flag. Once you find a flag, bring it to the guest's capture point (press to drop the flag; if you are using the Southpaw control layout). Use your main profile to take the flag out of the guest's capture point and return the flag to the main profile's side (do this before the game registers the guest's capture as a team point).

Make sure that the flag your main profile has captured registers as a game point for his team. Afterward, repeat the process again using your guest player to find and capture a second flag on the map, placing it in the guest's capture point and then stealing that flag with your main profile.

The achievement will unlock after the second flag that your main profile has stolen registers as a point in the game.


Is that better?

That one is the Oddball gametype I used to get the achievement for myself and my friend.
These three files worked perfectly this morning. All 3 achievements unlocked. Thanks.

OKAY, as awesome as this post was, half of it just confused me with the wording ("Do I kill the flag carrier, or does that game count if the flag's reset or do I HAVE to stand near the flag to recover it???????"). No offense. Let's make it...clearer:

Download the 3 files previously mentioned (see my first two quotes). If your files aren't automatically shown in Active Transfers, go to the Xbox dashboard and reload Halo Reach. After you have downloaded the file(s) needed, go to Custom Game from the main menu and sign in a guest profile on a second Xbox controller (make sure that this player is NOT the same team color as you--change the team color if necessary).

Defiant custome game achievements still working?

Hi,

Maybe you get ask this question a lot, sorry if its the case, i am not a regular of Halo Reach.

I purchased the Noble Map Pack but it happen to be a big waste of cash because since i have it, i haven't been able to get 1 single map in team swat... Problem is, Team Swat is all i like about halo MP. I really don't like the rest cause i don't like the core of Halo, the whole nade throwing and if you don't you need to unload your gun into somebody only to have it being stealed cause you ran out of ammo and had to reload... Anyway maybe im exagerating a little bit, but being a COD player i never really like Halo MP until i founded Swat, wich i find very fun, aim and shoot, guys die in 1 bullet, good stuff....

So well, i would like to know if the defiant map pack achievements can still be done on custom, cause i could wrap a few extra points at least. Its just that i had my friend buyed the 2 map pack during the deal of 400 each, but i had only pts for 1 pack on my side, i was hoping the new maps would pop on swat but they don't.... i played this for 3 days, loading at least 15 games, without even 1 new map, so well like i said i don't feel like buying the second map pack now knowing it won't pop in swat... but my friend is kind of angry at me cause he only play Halo with me...

Yes, the Defiant achievements and ONLY the Defiant achievements can still be unlocked in custom games. I just got my xbox sent back to me last week, and I bought the Defiant Map Pack and tried to do unlock the achievements in custom games. Be sure to download the files mentioned in this forum or else the achievements won't pop.

Just a quick question: Can I get these achievements with a friend online. I don't have a second controller so could I just get a friend to help me out with this?

I can confirm it has not been patched. I just got the cheevo last night. 2 tips though. When loading the gametype, pay attention to the notification towards the bottom. I first played what I thought was the correct oddball gametype just to find out that it was the built-in one. I then proceeded to load the one that said it was from Bungie and the cheevo popped. The other tip was making sure you picked the correct map exactly how the OP mentions.

IMO it would be pretty harsh of them to ban you for simply playing the game! There's no exploit or trick to this. The achievements have been accidentally enabled by one the Title Updates (I believe) and are therefore available to everyone. I don't suppose the devs are too chuffed about it, but what are you supposed to do? Say "oh no, I'd better not get two shotgun kills in a row"?

Only note of caution is using a dummy controller. I recently got a temporary ban (on earning credits, not matchmaking) and didn't understand why. One of the guys in the game told me it was because we used idle second controllers, which is against the rules. So I don't know how many matches with dummy controllers you'd have to play to bring down The BanHammer, but I thought it was worth mentioning. Ban was 24 hrs, by the way. HTH.

EDIT: On reflection, if I was going for these unlocked cheevs again, I'd probably space them out. Maybe it was playing too many games back to back with idle second controllers that flagged us as breaking the rules. Anyway, I'm guessing this little giveaway will be closed in the imminent TU…

Was going to purchase the Defiant Map Pack DLC today, so this will definitely come in handy.

Thank you.

EDIT: As of October 11, 2011 - this still works.

Just a quicky, can I still get these achievements without having the noble and defiant map packs? I already have 2 of the add-on achievements. And I'm not wasting my cash on buying the add-ons.

Yeah you will have to have a second controller to start a custom match, otherwise the game won't start. Either that or have a friend get into your custom game over xbox live. Just have at least 2 players in the custom match for it to start.

But no you don't have to download the DLC at this time in order to earn the achievements. Just download the custom gametypes that are listed in the first post and you should be able to earn them.
