Halo 4

Halo 4 Achievements

Clay Pigeon

In Crimson DLC matchmaking, shoot an enemy who’s airborne from a Man Cannon.  

The DMR is the most reliable weapon for this achievement due to its great accuracy and stopping power. Be on a constant lookout for airborne enemies in 'Wreckage' and once you see an enemy has launched off a Man Cannon, pick them off with the DMR. The achievement will pop as soon as you kill them.

Does anybody know exactly what to do for this achievement? I've done it at least a dozen times and it won't pop!

It sound like you have to kill the enemy player while he is airbourne

Strangely, the ODST achievement popped for me using an air lift, but I've killed about a dozen enemies popping out of air lifts and haven't got this achievement yet.

The achievements seem to be inconsistent for what a Man Cannon is.

Looking to boost a few achievement:

all you boosters are pathetic its only been out 1 day if your first reaction is to boost you should all give up halo and switch to an easier game like spongebob or call of duty. honestly these achievements are not that hard and most of them pop randomly. i played for 3 hours yesterday and im only missing 2 now so basically what im saying is get some skill or get off halo!

Wednesday, December 12, 2012 @ 03:42:08 PM

@ #4

The Man Cannon is the same now as it always has been. The Man Cannon is the one that fires you up and forward not the grav lifts.

I managed to get the ODST one by killing someone with a grenade while they were on the metal part of the man cannon itself but not in the air.

Comment #39 by AdroitxAssassin
Sunday, January 06, 2013 @ 07:16:26 PM

I got this one legit. Just sit by the man cannon, until the enemy team starts spawning behind the man cannon area. Wait for someone to come up, then jump on the man cannon and start shooting them.

It helps to have a DMR, or a BR. (For longer range, accurate shots)

The achievement says to 'shoot' an enemy, not 'kill'.
Can anyone confirm this case? Do you have to land a hit while they are in the air or actually kill 'em?

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 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.
