Lucky Me

Earned a Triple Kill while Jetpacking in Campaign, Firefight or Matchmaking.

*Must be done on Normal or higher difficulty*
For the triple, you must be using the jet pack. Not while you are free falling or have run out of thrust.

During Mission 7, "Exodus", you will go in a elevator that takes you to a open part of the tower. You will see banshees flying around and a couple troops in front of you. One of these troops has a rocket launcher. Swap out your weapon for the rocket launcher with the and hold on to it. You will walk a little to the left and be told to grab a jet pack. To use the jet pack, you press the and the to go in the direction you want. After you jettison across a couple platforms in the Cargo Port, you will come to a bigger platform with enemies on it. While using the jet pack, shoot the rockets at the 3 grunts on the lower of the two platforms for a easy Triple Kill.

This can easily be done during a Bonus Round in Firefight. Large groups of grunts will be dropped down(8-12 in one group). Get ready for the Dropships and sit on top of a higher part of the level(i.e. a rock or rooftop). Once they jump out, start to jettison into the air and shoot a rocket down at them. Refer to "Heat in the Pipe" for more information.

All have to be done in the air. So jetpack up and throw a sticky grenade down.

This is pretty easy to get during Firefight since you can turn on all those great skulls. Choose the smallest (area wise) level and turn on your invulnerable skull. This will also help get the points based achievement and the Legendary set one. These were very fun for me.

if you do firefight matchmaking vote for rocketfight and just jetpack up and rocket the groups when they jump off the phantoms/drop ships

The easiest way to get this is on Tip of the Spear, when you're actually at the Spire. That area is a place to get at least three 25G achievements.
When you exit the crashed Falcon, the jet-pack will be right in front of you. Pick it up, and walk forward until the Grunts start to rush down the hill. Jet-pack up, hurl a grenade at a cluster of Grunts, and bam.
The other two achievements you can get here are "Banshee Fast and Low", and also "A Spoonful of Blamite"

Nvm, figured it out. You need to actually use the pack, instead of decending from a boost. When I figured that out, I also noticed, you get the firebird logo, so watch out for that one!

I got this achievement on a custom firefight game (not online or during the campaign).
Just downloaded a map from called "Firefight Achievements"

the best way to do it is to go on firefight choose jetpack hide until loads of enemys are outside go outside and throw bombs at your enemies and keep shooting and do this while jetpacking and you should get the achivement

Did this on Tip of the Spear rally point B. Soon after crashing there's a hill with about 5 grunts coming towards you. If you are throwing grenades to do this it needs to explode while you're jet packing and not when you're descending.

what I did took 2 minutes and is faultless.
You start a firefight round on normal
(has to be normal, easy doesn't give achievements)
in the map courtyard, with the jetpack.
First thing you do is you run to the Airstrike,
find a ship, wait untill it hovers above the ground,
use the airstrike on the ship and attack it
with the airstrike. Once you fire the airstrike
just keep hovering. This is also the best way
to get a killionaire! 2 achievements packed into
2 minutes of easy combat.

This cheevo doesn't deserve 25 GS I would give it 5 GS for how easy it is!!!!! Just grab a rocket launcher and kill a bunch of grubs while jetpaking in firefight.

lol got this achievement in 20 seconds, go to firefight setting and make it so that your jet pack is unlimited, put rocket launcher as primary weapon, the hold LB and you float around then shoot at enemies on the ground to get this achievement

No cheating needed!
Just set up a Fire Fight with Jet Pack and Rocket Launcher Loedout or get 1 that drops.

Yeah I tried following these instructions, but the dude with the rocket launcher will not give it up for anything (I would be the same way, to be fair).
I even tried killing him for it, and as his last act as he went down, he threw his rocket launcher off the ledge to nowhere.
