Play squad slayer, max local players is 4 and it's 5 vs 5 games of slayer. I'm sure between your 3 boosters you can probably come up with 10 controllers. Most boosters tend to have 3 or 4 controllers lol. You can definately get the Defiant maps in rumble pit too if your 3 boosters all have the Defiant map pack, and that's another playlist that allows 4 local players so 2 people with 4 controllers each can do it.

If you can't find boosters online and you want to go for any of the Defiant ones legit, play Premium battle. That playlist requires Noble and Defiant map packs to play so you'll run into more Defiant games.

Correct, the achievements show up either by downloading the Anniversary maps or by loading multiplayer off the CE disk. However, the Defiant achievements will not unlock until you've downloaded the Anniversary maps, even if they're showing in your achievement list.

Squad slayer, got it, thanks. We had 4 controllers each so I don't know why we didn't try that one! Hopefully get it tonight!

If all 3 of you have 4 controllers, you may even want to do Premium Battle since it's supposed to have a heavier concentration of Defiant maps than the regular hoppers. I do believe Premium Battle is a 12-player gametype so it would be perfect for you.

We seriously have to do those three on specific maps now? Way to go 343. Do they feel they should balance out getting the other achievements in custom games?

I beat down two people while jetpacking - from the front & one from the side and did NOT get the achievement. It looks like you have to melee assassinate (without the animation so don't HOLD melee down) and opponent to unlock it. Anyone else done it legit - if so, is this the case? I'm 0/2 thus far.

There are only 2 maps the Defiant ones can be done on unfortunately, but the Premium Battle playlist is a good place to start if you're trying to do them legit. The Anniversary ones have 6 potential maps I believe, and their own set of playlists, so it's not all that bad.

Yes this is the case.
I did it legitimately, albeit with a lot of luck.

In order to get the achievement you need to also get firebird (which means you are USING the jetpack... not freefalling, but actively pressing LB)
A beat down is a quick kill from behind the person.
This differs from an assassination (the animation, you get it from holding the melee button) and pummel (just beating the person to death from a non-back side)

So you could/should walk up behind an oblivious enemy, start your jetpack, and while still pressing LB, hit (NOT HOLD) the melee button (for me it's RB, but that could change based on the button configuration you're using)

Basically, for all of the defiant achievements you're just praying for condemned. That means a gametype with AA, 1 flag CTF, and infection.

I don't think that highlands (or whatever the hell the other, non-firefight defiant map it) is even in the premium playlist.

Not sure if anyone else has pointed this out yet, but multiple people CAN get the headhunter achievement at the same time. Just have everyone who needs the achievement get 10 skulls and then watch where the scoring 'hills' spawn. Once everyone gets 10 skulls, they all need to stand on top of one of the inactive hill spawns and wait for that hill to come up; once it does, everyone will get a Skullamanjaro medal and the achievement.

This method takes a while because it requires a lot of killing, so I'd suggest only doing it if you're not boosting with a full party of 8, but it's definitely faster than trying to get headhunter to come up multiple times.

I got it on my 1st try.
A beat down is a non-assassination melee from behind.

Make sure you're doing it on an anniversary map. I tried on Breakpoint and Highlands but didn't get it. Went onto Beaver Creek and got it first time. Also, I recommend getting behind them, press jetpack from standing, and then quickly beating them down (assassinate but don't hold the button).


And has anyone been able to get All Alone legit yet (last man standing in a defiant map infection game)? I know I need a full room of people who have the defiant dlc, but even when I tried to boost I couldn't get it up.

Were you playing matchmaking? It doesn't work in custom games. If you were in matchmaking and you were on an anniversary map, there's no reason it shouldn't have unlocked unless maybe it DOES have to be without dying /shudder. Can anyone confirm having gotten it with a death in between the kills? If so then it'll be much harder legit.

3. Maybe all 5 splatters have to be the same type of vehicle (eg 5 ghost splatters for instance).
4. Maybe all 5 splatters have to be in a row with no other kill type between them, but you can still die between splatters, like the Top Shot achievement for 3 headshots.

Options 3 and 4 seem unlikely so I'm guessing it's either 1 or 2. We boosted it with ghosts and since we were boosting everyone did their 5 splatters without dying, so I can't confirm if dying between splatters negates the achievement.

Well, 2 and 3 are ruled out. I have gotten the other achievements, so I can't see anything related to that. And all 6 splatters were with ghosts.

I got Bounty Hunter by playing Team Headhunter in the Anniversary Squad playlist. Got 10 skulls, scored, won, and popped the achievement in a little over a minute. So it doesn't have to be FFA.
