Halo: Reach

Halo: Reach Achievements


Won a game of Invasion in the 1st phase.  

Invasion is a gametype in which you are either the Spartans or Elites, and attacking or defending multiple areas. There are three phases found in a game. At the end of each game, the attacking team gets a score based on how far/how many points your team has taken over. Either attacking or defending:

Attacking - Gain as many points as you can.
Defending - Stop the attacking team from gaining points.

In order to get this Achievement you must be defending, and stop the attacking team from getting past the first Phase. The first Phase lasts 4 Minutes.

You need to shutout the opposing team. Either Boneyard with Spartans or Elites on The Spire. Last the three minutes without the opposing teams capturing your Generators. Best way to get this is to COMMUNICATE. Talk to your team. See a hostile? Tell them. It may help to also memorize which generator is alpha and which one is bravo. "Hostile going to Bravo. Needle Rifle and Stalker."

Im not 100% sure but i think this can be done on custom games, again, im not sure, someone should test it and find out

As of 21 September, it does not appear that you can get this achievement in a custom game.

Keep queuing up for those Invasion matches, fellas.

I've found that it is easier to shut out the attackers in Boneyard; Alpha and Bravo are so close to each other that it's easier to cover both. In Spire, there's a bit more space in between the two points, so it's easier for the attacker to win.

Also, note that you only need to prevent the attacker from getting any points while you're defending; the achievement pops when the round ends if you can prevent the attacker from getting past Phase 1. You don't even need to win when it's your turn to attack.

Time to shed some light on this achievement.

You must win a game of invasion (idk if it has to be matchmaking) and the rival team CAN NOT GAIN A SINGLE POINT! Their score HAS TO BE ZERO and you HAVE to win to get the achievement.

i played invasion once for the achievements, ended up getting all the Invasion achievements the first time... whoops! just keep killin the invaders without letting them take position... or alternatively you can gather a bunch of your buddies and boost for it... but that's not really getting the achievement... that's just saying you have a lot of XBL friends

Just got it.

#15: No, you don't have to actually win the game. #11 is right, you just need to keep the opposing team from gaining a single point in a round (like defending the generators successfully).

I can't do this achievement because I don't have the recommended downloadable
content. Has this happened to anyone else? :/

Hellz Omen: I'm not sure how that happened, considering Boneyard and Spire are both perfectly valid places to get this achievement. If you're selecting a DLC playlist, you may be doing it wrong.
