Halo 4

Halo 4 Achievements


In Crimson DLC matchmaking, kill a player while airborne from a Man Cannon.  

Take note that this achievement is extremely buggy and has been randomly unlocking for many. Launch yourself off any Man Cannon and kill an enemy player while you are still in the air. Use a precision-based weapon for an accurate kill. There are a few alternate methods you can use to obtain this achievement:

Alternative method: Plasma-stick an enemy while you are Jetpacking and when either of you die, the achievement will unlock.

Alternative method: Rocket or Plasma-stick a Ghost/Warthog while jumping.

Alternative method: As an enemy is about to enter the Man Cannon, stick them with a Plasma Grenade and follow them through the Cannon. They will die while you're both in the air and you will also get 'Clay Pigeon.'

This is a glitchy achievement. I got it by simply getting an ordnance drop and calling it down. I don't know if anyone else got it this way but I did. LOL

I got it when I splattered another ghost while I was in a ghost.

Not sure how I got mine. All I know is I was standing somewhere, a guy charged me and I hit him with a grenade that threw him back.

I also got it with Death from the Grave. At least that's a lot easier than the real description!

I got this when another player shot me with an basoca, and he died too because it was so small room, i got this achivement together with another man cannon achivement, so i got two already

this is easiest on wreckage as everyone is trying to get them and fighting near the man cannon areas

I also got this by calling in an ordinance. Now if I could find some other way to bullshit the rest of these bullshit achievements.

I got all the man cannon achievements in one game about an hour after downloading the map packs. All were from random things like the rest of you (ie kill from the grave, random beatdowns etc that werent near man cannons) i had the time stamps and everything. the total number (49 original) of achievements under halo hadnt changed but after opening the achievement list on my profile i had them along with my gamerscore going up. i got back on later and they were all gone. once the list had updated i guess they took them away. anyone else have something like that happen? hope that made sense. hard to explain really.

I got mine from King of the Hill on wreckage. I threw a frag and got a double kill as I got killed by a ghost. That's okay with me!

i jumped with a rocket launcher and killed a guy and got it. maybe u just have to be in the air, and not actually in the air from a man cannon

I got mine and I was no where near a man cannon. It may have been a death from the grave. I think I was jumping at the time, but I'm not sure. Whatever I guess, as long as it popped. :)

I got mine from the grave, too. I think it must be written so that if you are moving toward or away from the opponent at a certain speed, it registers as being launched by a man cannon.

I believe I got this by sticking someone with a plasma as they were airborne and getting the kill from the grave.

When i got this, I shot a warthog with a rocket, killing the driver, & then shot a second rocket at a guy on the ground. Then, I stuck the warthog, destroying it & the gunner. Not sure which one actually gave me the achievement, but i was nowhere near a man cannon

I bought Halo 4 when it was first out and recently bought the G.O.T.Y. edition. It's proven to be mostly a waste of $40, being I can't seem to find other people who have the (DLC) maps I need to play on. I enjoy getting the achievements and helping other people do the same. If you need help with anything and don't mind helping me get some of the achievements I'm trying to get, feel free to add me on XBL. I'm an easy-going, team player, with a mic/headset and get along well with everyone I game with, etc. My gamer tag is: your7sins

I think it's funny 343 just added a 'new' playlist category recently (which will be removed by Feb. 3'd) for people to work on the DLC achievements. It's ONLY for 4v4 games, not 8v8 (which it total bullshit because you need a bigger map with more vehicles to get most of them in this DLC, especially the Mantis achievements. The category is usually populated by small numbers of people...ever. 400-600 is what I see every time I play a game in it. Then, almost every game...people quit out of the game if it's not a map they want/need. THIS is why people boost. Everyone looking to get more achievements completed having constrictions on which they can accomplish based on the stupid fucking manner 343 went about setting up a category for people to play in.

I don't know what happened but when I started playing the game last night, the system gave me 16 achievements that I hadn't earned. It gave me all the castle map pack achievements and the majestic map pack achievements I didn't already have. I know this isn't the place to put this but I couldn't figure out how to post a brand new thread. Anyway can someone tell me why this happened?
