Halo 4

Halo 4 Achievements

Chief, Smash!

Killed 3 Crawlers in one hit with the Gravity Hammer in mission 8.  

Campaign Mission 8 'Midnight' specific. Online not required. Can be obtained on Easy+.
Use 'Mission Select' after initial Campaign playthrough if missed.

The gravity hammer looks like this:

Gravity Hammer

The Hammer is acquired in an armoury room shortly after Rally Point Bravo. Crawlers are the dog looking beasts with yellow-orange flame faces. The trick is to wait until many try to attack you at once, and kill 3 with one swing of the Gravity Hammer.

Right after going through the teleport, you can catch 3+ crawlers near each other if you're fast enough. Otherwise, just take your time, and get to the part of the level where Cortana will ask you to "defend". At this point, let the crawlers come to you, and you shouldn't have a problem finding them in a group of 3 or more.

Glitchy: Can be glitchy. 
The Fix: Just keep at it until it unlocks.

You just know that there's going to be a scripted area where three (probably unaware/unmoving) crawlers are standing.

We're does the hammer come from? There aren't any brutes in the game and the elites don't use them.

Spoilers, I suppose - at one point, you reach a room where it appears a bunch of weapons were collected from somewhere. Forerunner, Covenant, and Human weapons are all in the room, including Hammers. A bit after this point, there's a barrage of Crawlers that attack an area you must defend. This is where I got the achievement. Cute how dey explode n errything.

In Mission 8: Midnight (Rally Point - Bravo), you'll make your way through some portals. In one area you will reach, there will be 4 weapons you can choose from. Choose to pick up the Gravity Hammer. Stow the weapon and use your other firearm, until you get reach a point where you must defend the area. Crawlers will come out in droves out on a narrow walkway, and this is the perfect time to unlock the achievement.

Achievement Guide

You can actually get this achievement as soon as you pick up the grav. hammer so you can use it not stow it.

#8 - Good video guide.

Any word on whether it can be done co-op, and does each player need to take a turn with the hammer?

Here is an easy way to get this

Each player has to do it. Just did it by taking turns and reverting previous save after each player got it. Btw, AFTER you pick up Cortana is a really good spot. Just run up and smash when they all spawn and gather right at the end of the bridge.

Just tested: This achievement can be obtained on the difficulty level "Easy" in Solo mode!

Why wouldn't you be able to do it on easy solo #12? It doesn't state a difficulty.

@ #13 no need to be an ass, he's just confirming you can do it that way

Did this on Heroic with more retries than expected. The method that worked for me was letting the first three Crawlers (in the defend an area event) jump up the ramp, and then I would immediatelt run down, and by being at the bottom of the ramp it made them run to the edge of it and line up neatly. They did this 4/4 times, but I kept slightly missing the first three times. Fourth, pop!

@#13 I don't know if you've played any Halo games before Halo 4 or somehow forgot... but playing through campaign on easy disables most level specific achievements. #12 was just confirming that this doesn't apply to Halo 4 like it did in 3 and Reach.

so easy to get. bam bam booom

very easy did it on my first try. All you need to do is in the room right after you get the hammer is wait for the crawlers to come to you and bam all done.

This is a pain in the ass doing it on Heroic co'op. I suggest doing this solo.

I can't seem to get it unlocked. I've tried on easy, normal, and heroic. Do all three need to be destroyed vs being launched to their death?

Comment #21 by QuackPuppy
Friday, December 14, 2012 @ 09:10:34 AM

yeah it has to be with the gravity hammer and not with them falling to their deaths

Dunno if it'll help, but I found it useful to hammer Cortana's turrets when she spawns them. Means there's more targets for you

#15 worked for me first time on easy.

Thanks :-)

Be sure you hit 'Normal' Crawlers. Alpha crawlers won't die if you hit them, not even when your playing on Easy ;)

This Achievement glitched on me but popped up after I hit another set of three crawlers.

Tho it is difficult luring them in a group to where the hammer is able to hit all of them at once.

The way i got this is i was running around and three crawlers glitched and stoped running. was easy after tht!
