Halo 4

Halo 4 Achievements
Beating up the Beat30
In Castle DLC Matchmaking, perform 5 melee kills in a single match.

This should come naturally during any of your matches, but the five beat downs must be done in one match. If you favor the BR/DMR, use its stopping power to strip the enemy's shield away, allowing you to move in for a deadly melee attack. If you favor close quarter weapons such as the Assault Rifle or Suppressor, you can engage your enemies in a CQC firefight, which will allow you to unload half the clip into them before beating them down. Each beat down must be from the front or side. If you beat down an enemy from behind, it will not count towards the achievement.

Sword, 'nuff said. Assuming it will be on the maps of course.

This should be easy. Melee seems to be one of the only things people do in halo apart from spamming grenades before they run up to melee you.

I don't think the Sword counts as a melee kill.

It certainly doesn't when playing Grifball, as the only way Melee Commendations would go up was when I killed a player with the Ball, not using the GravHammer or Sword.

So its seems like you need to get 5 Beat Down or Melee medals for this.

Kill five enemies up close with a melee on the biggest maps of all the current map packs and maps that contain lots of vehicles. What a douche bag Achievement. I just finished a match with seven melee medals and no Achievement, so I assume it doesn't count beat downs and must be the front facing melee.

Really, 5 melee kills in one game?
Considering the nade spamming, team shotting and power weapons on this game, you'll be dead before you get a melee kill most times...and they want 5 legit?

Castle Map Pack. I have four controllers if we need to just get some idle guests in a game with us too. I'm looking for people that are competent players, know what you are doing, and are willing to stick around and not just leave as soon as they get their achievements. I also prefer that you have a mic and not be a squeaker, but if push comes to shove, I can deal with it. If you are interested, message on XBL telling me that you are looking to do these achievements, whether or not you have a mic, and how many controllers you have. I WILL NOT ACCEPT FRIEND REQUESTS WITHOUT A MESSAGE. Sorry, but I don't accept random friend requests. So hit me up if you want in! Thanks!

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 am NOT a fan of boosting.. But without many people having the DLC it seems in match making and even when they do it's a mess with everyone doing their own things trying for achievements.. I have decided to try and boost some of these.

I need many of the DLC achievements still, almost all of them. I have a mic, and 4 controllers. I would love help getting these done, and will also of course help you get them! ^.^
