How I got ODST and Special Delivery

I was playing on Solace earlier and was in a gun fight with an enemy. He ran at me and at this point both our shields were down to "1 shot" and we were fighting infront of the reddish orange mancannon.we both jumped at the same time and meleed each other at the same time killing each other at the same time. Both our bodies flew in the mancannon and we both died. I got both achievements and assume he did as well.

I apologize if this is posted in the wrong place but I just had to share how much luck went into this. I hope this can help others and can maybe be used as a tip to getting these 2 what I thought were going to be annoying achievements.

What I did was follow the flag carrier off a mancannon and did a mid air assassination. I also go the achievement for beating a person down after landing from a mancannon

Not sure how, but I got Special Delivery just punching a guy in the face with no man-cannons involved. He stuck me right before and I may have been jumping at the time, if that helps.

Strange, I got the ODST achievement just by being in midair and killing an opponent before hitting the ground. I was surprised it unlocked.

I got ODST and Special Delivery with my first kill on the map pack. There was no man cannon on the map and I wasnt even jumping, go figure.

I just got Special Delivery after the player I melee'd as I landed committed suicide.

I also got ODST on Shatter earlier in a DMR duel.

I got a sticky kill from the grave and because he jumped before it exploded, I got ODST.

I just got ODST and Special Delivery standing on flat ground no where near a man cannon. A guy shot me to death and I melee'd him to death at the same time (both standing on flat ground, not even jumping) and both unlocked.

This is how I got it on both accounts.

The first time I didn't understand. So I tried another account to see if I could do it again.

I stick'ied someone right before he was going to kill me.. i push the jetpack as soon as i threw the sticky... it popped like that both times.

We both died.

I'm 99% certain that they HAVE to be done on the Crimson Maps. The Achievement description states, "In Crimson DLC Matchmaking...blah blah"

So I don't think the launch-maps will work.

They won't pop on normal maps, it clearly states "Crimson DLC playlist".

I got odst on foot by throwing a grenade at a hog, it was on harvest that doesn't even have a man cannon the only other I've got so far is the clay pigeon one which is easy to get if you keep on the hill in wreckage long enough.

I've not really been looking at the cheevos, it just feels good to have new maps to run around and act like a big kid on.

Got ODST from a random 1v1, but Special Delivery was more interesting. I was on Wreckage infinity Slayer. Killed some guy with DMR, another approaches. I shoot his shields off while we move closer to eachother. He threw a plasma nade and stuck me, I got close enough to get a double kill with his sticky and got the achievement. I was a happy man lol

I got both cheevos by punching a guy, he didn't die by that hit but the splash damage from his railgun finished both of us, then the cheevos popped lol.

I got ODST achievement by sticking a warthog and getting a triple kill, no man cannon involved. In fact, every achievement that had somthing to do with a man cannon I have unlocked without being even remotely close to a man cannon. The one where you have to get a kill on the warthog machine gun while in mid air I also got while on the ground...

Forgot to mention, the match before I unlocked those achievements was on Wreckage too. I launched from a man cannon, saw an enemy in the landing area, shot his shieds down and he shot mine. When I landed, we traded melee kills. No achievement unlocked LOL So doing it the way the achievement says doesn't work.

I was bouncing on the man cannon at the enemy base and as someone walked by I melee killed him. This popped all 3 of the Man Cannon achievements including ODST.

I was very surprised when I got both. I threw a grenade and stuck one guy. I then went through the man cannon where his buddy was standing. When the plasma went off, I was in the air. It killed the guy it was stuck to and took the shield away from the guy near the man cannon. As soon as I landed, I melee'd the guy still standing. I was shocked to see that 2 for 60G pop up.

For some odd reason I got the 'ODST' achievement (as well as 'David and Goliath' and 'Pump Yer Brakes') after boarding an enemy Mantis and killing it with a plasma grenade. The achievements are definitely glitchy, but not in a bad way.
