Halo 4 Achievements

Give Him the Stick

Took out both Hunters using only the Sticky Detonator in mission 7.  

Campaign Mission 7 'Composer' specific. Online not required. Can be obtained on Easy+.
Use 'Mission Select' after initial Campaign playthrough if missed.

Kill both Hunters using only the Sticky Detonator while playing Solo.

At the start of the mission, you will have a teammate die in front of you and drop a sticky detonator, make sure to pick it up. It will look like this:

Sticky Detonator

Further along the mission, you will encounter two hunters in a laboratory room. 

The Sticky Detonator is a remotely detonated weapon. Press  to fire a sticky onto a Hunter. The sticky will only explode when you press  a second time.

You have 5 rounds in the Sticky Detonator, so play this level on Easy because it will take 2 Sticks to kill each one. Pick up extra rounds of ammo if you are playing on a higher difficulty.

An extra Sticky Detonator can be acquired in a weapon cabinet in the far left corner of the laboratory room. Another extra Sticky Detonator is found within the small white room within this laboratory.

This achievement is unlocked in Mission 7: Composer (Rally Point - Alpha). Once you reach the labs where there are two Hunters, you can find a Sticky Detonator in the nearby weapons cabinet (and other surrounding areas). Weaken the two Hunters, then use the Sticky Detonator on one of them. Then you'll have to corral them together, and once they are together you can detonate it to kill them both. Restart the checkpoint from the main menu if you mess up.

Forget what I just said, despite it saying that in the description I just unlocked this achievement in Co-op.

Just wanted to clear up something: This achievement CAN be done in either Solo, or co-op however, if you are playing co-op, then only the person who kills both hunters can get the achievement. Re-loading the checkpoint after killing both hunters does not work for the other person because a save occurs after one hunter is killed. You DO NOT have to kill both hunters at the same time (with one shot) in order to get this achievement.

#8 you can get the achievement in co-op you have to kill both hunters before you get the achievement. That part is right, however you CAN reload checkpoint after killing both hunter so the other player can get the achievement too. did it with a friend today.

Just did this on legendary, 4 shots (stuck to their heads, don't know if this matters) on each one. Carried the one gun from the beginning of the level and then picked up ammo in the room near the hunters.

Not difficult, even Legendary Solo. You get plenty of Sticky Launcher ammo, and there is more in the laboratory where you fight the hunters. Just aim for the bodies rather than their shields and they go down easy.

An easy way to do this Achievement is to use the hologram. Stand out side the doors to the room where the two hunters are, using the right hand side of the door frame as cover ( the hunters can not leave the room!)send your hologram in to the wall and let a hunter go for it. while he is distracted blast it with the sticky and then get back to cover using door frame and repeat for second! hope this helps!!!
