Cheers in advance.
Shatter has numerous Turrets in the center structure. I will add this into the Guide.

Many, including myself, have tried this method. It doesn't work 100% of the time. That's why I took it out of the Guide.

Clay Pidgeon doesn't work when the enemy is JetPacking. I can confirm it doesn't work as I've tried over 25+ times on Wreckage.

that's too bad, I would've liked to be able to do that one easily. Looks like I'll need to put together a boosting party for the last four achievements... Bleh, why couldn't these have been something you get simply by playing enough?

As for turrets... Same map as the Mantis. I play Harvest and that map all the freakin' time. Nobody ever votes for the other map, so I never see it, no clue if turrets are on that one.

Silly question...

If I put a Warthog in a grav lift that it can't really get to the top of (like on Harvest there are a couple that go indoors), is it possible to get out, get in the turret, shoot someone, and get the achievement that way?

Without testing, I'm not completely sure, but I got the other man cannon achievements from those grav lifts.

The grav lifts can't lift vehicles, not even a mongoose. :/

Good suggestion though.

Figures. That would make that too easy. Has anyone found a good spot to park the Mantis for Bigfoot? I just can't get stomps for the life of me anymore!

For Special Delivery, it appears that assassinations do not count. Twice on Wreckage I landed from the Man Cannon into an assassination animation, and did not get the achievement.

The third time I merely beat the guy down and got the achievement.

I don't have that achievement yet (mostly due to my inability to GET a Mantis), but when I did grab the vehicle, I found the best place was to sit in one of the caves and shoot outwards at enemies from there. They do NOT hesitate to try to stun you with a PP as well as charge you in order to kill you for this. You don't even have to kill anyone when you're in the cave. Just fire rockets out, fire a few shots, hit a few people. Use the caves as cover when they try to shoot back.

I got a killing spree in one game using this tactic before they nailed me from all sides and I just couldn't turn and stomp fast enough before being borded and murdered.

Thanks dude - the most knowledgeable achievement hunters on plnet earth are definitely on this website. So this is basically an aggregate video on all our studies (plus some tidbits I learned). I will post it up tonight on here when I'm done and you could add it to the guide

It covers all 8 cheevos.

Sounds good to me man, if the video covers all 8 then it will benefit this Guide and the community so so much. I will check back later tonight for when you've posted it and I will certainly add it to the Guide and give the credit where it's due

That is an awesome video. Thank you for doing that! Of course, thanks to BiggD and his guide.

I really don't like how overpowered the mantis is in multiplayer. I mean, it's meant to take out banshees and phantoms ffs! Pair that with a ghost and they're an impossible pair to take on.

You can track your Mantis Stomps by viewing your stats at Halo Waypoint: https://app.halowaypoint.com/en-us/Halo4

1. Log in
2. Click on War Games - Matchmaking
3. Click on the << icon on the right to bring the next screen over, then click on Maps
4. Click on Shatter
5. See your total Mantis Stomps (you might need to click on View All Weapon Stats first)

(You can also view your Machine Gun Turret kills the same way, though it does not appear that detached kills are tracked separately.)

Not sure if anyone has posted about this yet, but here's how I easily got Big Foot.

Vote CTF and if you manage to snag a Mantis, camp your team's teleporter exit. Enemies that steal your flag usually go through it and they're defenseless with the flag. If you have a friend or two, have them camp with you in case of any Plasma Pistol retaliation.

Nice vid, but Now they Fly remains damn near impossible without boosting. Tried the Wreckage method and came close a few times, but the man cannons either send you too far or not far enough. Plus, nobody is ever stupid enough.

Also, is it just me or does getting a melee hit in a passenger seat become impossible when you're airborne? Screwed me out of the achievement twice now.

Just head to the left side of the starting spawn on Harvest, grab the Sniper by the Warthog, and hop in the passenger seat. Having the Ammo perk helps along with a decent driver.

Fuck this game. I just got a splatter kill with the warthog in midair with all 4 wheels off of the ground for a good couple of seconds before and after the kill. And after hours of pain and torment, what do I get? Yep. Jack shit.

Buut a few more hours of persistence and the bastard finally popped. Words can't describe the relief. Next DLC better not be a repeat.

Definately not '1-2 hours depending on luck'. Could be bloody 10-20 hours the way it's going for me.

Two hours with a boosting party. 10-20 based on any sort of luck. Maybe more.

I'm sorry to say, it's just you. Actually, it's probably not just you. But it is quite possible, and it does work for the now they fly achievement. How I got it.

As for the Bigfoot achievement, I will have to say vehicle stomps count for the achievement. It unlocked at around 20 I believe. @Tai_MT: Thanks for the suggestion, but I found that being outside of the smaller bases worked well for me. Anyway, I'm a little unsure since I did go until I died on it and got a few more stomps. The turret is the same way, but it unlocked on my 21st kill. Still having problems with the airborne warthog achievement and I'll try to do it without boosting since I did all these others without it.

Damn, the Mantis drivers are getting too smart and chickening out of the Mantis, making it hard to board it unless your a speed demon. I should have tried for these on Monday.
