Halo: Reach

Halo: Reach Achievements

Offensive Driver

Noble 1: Earn a kill in a matchmade Rocket Race game.

This achievement can only be unlocked in Matchmaking within the Multi Team playlist, as it is the only playlist with the Rocket Race game type. To get this achievement, you must simply earn a kill against an enemy. However, you can only harm an enemy when they're NOT within a vehicle, so you'll have to either forcefully eject them from the vehicle or wait until the driver flips the vehicle by accident. Once that happens, simply fire away at the enemy to get your kill and achievement. This achievement can be unlocked on any map.

Also, note that you must kill an enemy by either splattering them or with a Rocket Launcher within the passenger seat. Killing an enemy using the Rocket Turret on the back of the Warthog will not count.

If your trying to get this achievement, play in the playlist multi-team. You cant rocket anyone if their on a mongoose, but anyone on foot will die by a close rocket.

Choose "Multi-Team" in the playlist, there should be "Rocket Race" at the bottom. It is pretty easy, u just need to shoot them while they are not on the car!!

I'm looking to do this and a few other DLC achievements TONIGHT. I've already got 4 controllers ready to go for 1030pm eastern time. Finishing any achievement will be easy if EVERYONE in the game is working on it. Leave your gamertag under my post if you'll be there that way people are motivated to do it because they'll see so many people...AND send me a request...aphewscruzloos7.

I'll be on sparingly between now and then but that will be the time.

Tell everyone!


I'm putting this message on every dlc achievement...let's keep the list together on one of them.
