dude, i can almost guarantee u didnt. You probly boosted it, saw the spree on ur bungie thing on ghost town and later thought, that looks boosted and just sed hear you did it. Not trying to start an argument, and i gess anything in halo is possible, but do u happen to have a clip of that? And guys look on front page I got some achievement tips. Oh and ball/flag kills =2 hits in doubles and MLG and 1 hit in everything else.

Also, for the infection achievements, most game types (the most common is "save one bullet") have shotgun starts and no other weapons on the whole map. So the advice to use a Sniper rifle is kinda weird...

The perfection isn't so hard as you make it out. It is entirely possible in a team slayer game. Your team just has to win by 15 kills and you must not die. This is easiest on a team snipers game, where you simply hide and take potshots every now and again.

For flag kills they are instant kills (at least in my experience). No need to go for a tricky assasination

"Post mortem" achievement, you can also use a needler, and is very effective at getting this type of achievement.

One last thing, the flag holder DOES NOT have a big indicator above his head in most CTF games, his only location indicator will appear if he flag juggles

Those are just some things that I think could be updated

Quite True... Good Guide though!

Can anyone confirm that for the Annual achievement, you actually need 4 XBL tags ?

eg can I get it by playing with 3 Xbox's, where one of them has a guest ? Or do I need 4 actual gold-enabled gamertags ?

Question....is it possible to get the Defend This achievement by betraying a team member? I've been having a time and a half trying to bonk opponents with the flag (they always get me before I go in). Plus...I don't capture the flag afterwards, which is lame. Wondering if I can get it back to my base and then hit a (willing) teammate with it before scoring.

Anyone tried it?

Nice guide. For the new achievements, I just got a full party for DLC FFA and/or Big Team and just boosted them. Went alot faster then actually trying to get a legit Splatter Spree..

I got mine in Ghost Town with a Mongoose, what a beast

I was wondering if you have to beat the whole campain or just the last level for the achievement with Iron and ghosts one. I think its the Annual one.

The Killtacular medal is one step further when compared to the Overkill acheivement. This requires that you get 5 kills in any match. However, this is substantially easier than Overkill because it CAN be done in social matches.
You do realize this is NOT 5 kills in a match. It is 5 kills within 4 seconds of each other. The only reason it could be easier than the Overkill is because you can join in with all friends and boost it.

It will be packaged with the Halo Wars LE and go on sale on the marketplace soon after, according to Bungie. This should be in February some time.

I don't have the achievement, but from what everyone else is saying and according to the videos, you only have to beat the last level, Halo, on Legendary with 4 players over LIVE and all in Ghosts.

The easiest map to get all the legendary achievements is on Avalanche right? The "Flag Dropped" achievement is sometimes hard to get on Avalanche though cause no one ever even goes for the flag in my experience. It is a rare gametype, but Swat Flag on Blackout is a simple way to get the "Flag Dropped" achievement.

Use any fast vehicle (preferable NOT a mongoose) and look for people to splatter! If the vehicle has a boost addition, use it just before hitting a player. You need to get five such kills in a row. Must be done on a Legendary Map.
It's worth 50G, not 25.
My method was to play DLC Big Team Slayer. When you get a game on Avalanche get to the ghost as fast as possible, grab a mongoose at your base and drive to the ghost.
Take the ghost back to your base and drive up the side wall, by the middle connecting tunnel that everyone seems to congregate at. Sit there and wait for someone to come out, hit LT to boost and splatter them. After 1 or 2, drive all the way around or go through the tunnel, whichever you feel is safer depending on where enemies are, and splatter more people on the other side. Get 5 without dying and you've got the achievement. You can kill people with the ghost guns or your gun in between splatters, as long as you get 5 splatters without dying, you'll get the achievement.
If you don't know the middle connecting tunnel I'm talking about, you can go to my fileshare on Bungie and download a video of me getting it.

Again I must point out your utter lack of Halo knowledge about this too:

I actually picked up the "Look Both Ways" achievement today with some friends on a Rumble Pit. Turns out that we maxed out the # of players in the map, and drew Ghost Town as our starting map. Mongoose Mowdowns all day baby.

Try that out if you are stuck on this one.

For "Tank Dropper" there is an easier way involving a recently announced item.
Go onto Sandbox, become a monitor and spawn a "kill ball" (A big ball which kills anyone who touches it). Then just make it touch someone. Alot easier than trying to splatter someone.

Check the weekly update on bungie.net if you don't believe me.

(I think you were right about it only taking 2 melees in some playlists. Mine were one hit kills.)

Get to the rank of Lieutenant in any playlist in the new EXP progression system.

Does anyone know the best and/or easiest, if any of them were somewhat easier anyway, to get this achievement? Just wondering, thanks in advance.

You don't ALL have to be on different consoles. When I did it with a couple of my friends, 2 of them were on the same console and we all got achievements

The first time I did the achievement: 2 hours.
The second time I did the achievement: 2 hours.
The third time I did the achievement: 1 hour 3 minutes

For Killtacular achievement, wait until you get Grifball on Grifbox. Then get your easy 5 kills within 4 sec of each other. This is on Team Mythic playlist. Using this method, I got 8

Post Mortem - Wait untill you get orbital, rush for the plasma nades. When you see someone, run up to them and at the last moment tag them with the nade. 99% of the time they'll beat you down/shoot you in the face and you'll get your grave kills.

Hammer Time - Not a lot to this one. Best way to get it is to camp out under one of the bases and just whack people as they come round. If you get killed, try and retrieve the hammer as quickly as possible, since the kill limit is fairly small and so you don't get much chance to let it respawn.

Skull locations for Orbital, Assembly, Sandbox:

Hope that helps some people. =)
