Introduction:
"Welcome to Reach", the highly anticipated prequel by Bungie Software, part of the Halo Series. You will be taking control of Noble 6, part of the Noble Spartan Team. Fighting for the survival of Reach is your number one priority. You will go from destroying the Covenant offensive, saving civilians from imminent doom, and seeing a plot unfold. Get ready to wage war on humanities worst enemies, one more time.

Breakdown:
If you are a experienced Halo player, you can most likely jump right into the Campaign and complete it on Legendary difficulty alone. This may be the toughest Halo to date due to the AI being much smarter and agile. There are no collectibles to be found in this Halo.

Also, for A Monument to All Your Sins, you must complete the game on Legendary on your own. As there are two separate "Complete the game on Legendary" achievements. Below I will post what Is recommend as how you should play through the game to get yourself 1000 with minimal frustration.

You must play on Normal or higher difficulty to get achievements like Banshees, Fast and Low, KEEP IT CLEAN, etc.

Step One: Campaign: (25 Achievements for 725)
Campaign for Newer/Moderate Halo Players
(2 Campaign Playthroughs):
If you are newer/a moderate Halo player, then this is recommended for you to know the game and where enemies spawn.

First play through the campaign on Normal difficulty to understand how the game is and to get a feel for it. This will get you a minimum of 125 by just completing the campaign on Normal.

Then start your playthrough on Legendary by yourself and play through the campaign again. This should go faster since you know the feel of the controls and how the enemy AI responds. This will get you 325 for just completing it on Legendary alone. For more tips on Legendary, please refer to Gods Must Be Strong.

Campaign for Experienced Halo Players
(1 Campaign Playthrough): Legendary
If you are a experienced Halo player, then this should be easier for you then others. Play through all ten missions found in the Campaign on Legendary. Take your time around the corners and stick back. For completing the campaign on Legendary alone, it will net you a minimum of 440. For more tips on Legendary, please refer to Gods Must Be Strong.

Step Two: Firefight: (6 Achievements for 155)
Firefight has 6 achievements that relate to it. Firefight is much easier this time around as there are things you can enable like infinite ammo and unlimited health. Download this Firefight settings file to your account from Bungie to complete Firestarter, Blaze Of Glory, Heat In The Pipe, Game, Set, Match and Crowd Control in one easy go.

Step Four: Multiplayer: (9 Achievements for 65)
The multiplayer achievements are very spare in this portion of the game. This should take you the largest amount of time as it has to deal with uploading/recommending files, winning certain game types, and earning a killing spree. The longest portion will be getting to the level of Lt. Colonel to purchase an item. If you want to boost any of these achievements, please refer to this thread: Achievement Trading Thread.

Step Five: Misc/Clean up:
After completing the game on Legendary difficulty alone and doing all Firefight/Multiplayer Achievements. All you should have left is reaching a certain rank in UNSC, doing something misc. in a certain mission and killing enemies with a certain weapon. Refer to the guide below for any achievements you're still missing.

Noble Map Pack

Step One: Living Dead Match (Both Barrels):
For this achievement, you need to gain a double kill with a shotgun, meaning you gain two kills with the shotgun within four seconds of each other. This achievement will come naturally as you play this game mode. It is very likely you will get it in your first match. The odds of you getting this will increase even more if you stay alive longer than most, simply stay in a safe spot with your shotgun out and you will eventually get it.

Step Two: Rocket Race Match (Offensive Driver):
For this achievement, you need to obtain a single kill in the game mode "Rocket Race." This is arguably the easiest achievement on the list. To easily gan a kill, flip an enemy warthog over, causing the enemies to leave their vehicle. Depending on your position in the Warthog, you will need to shoot your rockets, your rocket launcher, or run over the players to gain the achievement.

Step Three: Big Team Battle Match(es) (Cross Mappin', Poppin' & Lockin', Totally Worth It, You Ate All The Chips(Possibly), and You Blew It Up!(Possibly):
All of these five achievements are possible to obtain in the playlist 'Big Team Battle,' but they may be easier done in the playlist for their appropriate game type.

Step Four: Mop Up
As stated before, if you were not able to obtain any of the achievements within the 'Big Team Battle' playlist, it may be best to obtain the remaining achievements in their respective playlists. If that fails, most if all of the achievements are easily boostable.
 
Defiant Map Pack

Note: The original three achievements from this DLC (Return to Sender, Crackin' Skulls and Candy from a Baby) are obtainable on any map. This includes original maps from the game and maps from the two other map packs (Noble and Anniversary). The other three achievements (Don't Touch That!, Paper Beats Rock, and All Alone) are only obtainable on the Defiant maps (Condemned and Highlands). It is highly recommended that the latter three achievements are boosted, as there is no specific playlist for these maps. They will only appear if everybody in the matchmade game owns the map pack.

Step 1: Team Objective
This requires ten players. Begin matchmaking in the Team Objective playlist. Here, you will be able to get Return to Sender, Candy from a Baby, Don't Touch That!, and Paper Beats Rock. It is recommended to get the latter two in the same game if Armor Lock is a load-out option. Crackin' Skulls can also be gained in this playlist, but you may prefer to do it in Rumble Pit - that only requires 8 players.

It is also worth noting here that the Team Objective playlist is within the "Evolved" section of playlists. This means that it has received a "Title Update". Title updated game types are marked with "TU" at the start of their names. (You will notice this on the voting screen.) Some game types within this playlist do not contain Armor Lock as a loadout option, so bear this in mind when going for Paper Beats Rock.

Step 2: Living Dead
This requires twelve players. All Alone is achieved in the Living Dead playlist. Infection games last for 3 rounds, so once you get a game on Condemned/Uplink, a maximum of three people have the opportunity to get this in a single game. The Living Dead playlist is found within the "Standard" section of playlists.

Conclusion:
Halo: Reach is without a doubt, if not the best Halo game that has come out from the series. It shows what the series can still continue to achieve and progress even when we sometimes think there couldn't be more done to make it a better game. Truly, one for the record books.

Please refer to Gods Must Be Strong for more information.

Gods Must Be Strong125
Completed the Campaign on Legendary difficulty. (95) 

Legendary is much harder in this Halo then others in the past as the AI is much tougher. Here are tips on how to complete the campaign on Legendary:

  • Conserve your ammo. Running out of ammo is severely dangerous. Enemies already take a large amount of bullets, and there isn't much ammo to be found laying around. If you do find yourself out of ammo for a weapon, swap it for anything. You need to have a weapon no matter what.
  • Be patient. Nothing will get you killed faster then running out of cover blindly.
  • If you need to, run out and see where enemies are at to get a feel of what's to come.
  • Save your grenades, they will become your lifesaver. Use them only in extreme measures and taking out large groups of enemies.
  • During any portion of the campaign, be on the lookout for the "Drop Shield" ability. This is the best ability to have during the game. It shields you from enemies fire/grenades, and heals you while you are inside it.
  • Always be on the move, never stop and be in one area. Enemies will just point all their fire at you and kill you almost immediately.

First you must find a Covenant outpost, then it will tell you to go save the survivors. After you have found and fought off the Covenant drop ships that come, you will have completed this.

Two Corpses In One Grave25
Killed 2 vehicles at once with the Target Locator in the 3rd mission. (50) 

*Must be done on Normal or higher difficulty*
This is done on "ONI: Sword Base". After you have fought the onslaught of enemies that attack you. You will go around a bend and be put into a sort of bunker with opening doors. On the left you will see the Target Locator. Once the doors open, you will see a rock in front of you. At the bottom of the hill, you will see two wraiths appear and be near each other. Call in the strike in the center of both of them, and destroy them both at the same time. This may take some timing and aiming/calling in the strike before they come to the area.

Banshees, Fast And Low25
Hijacked a Banshee during the Reach Campaign. (58) 

*Must be done on Normal or harder difficulty*
The easiest level to do this on is during the fifth mission found in the campaign, "Tip of the Spear". During the mission you will find a Jet Pack, this may come in handy if you need it. You can start at Rally Point B, which puts you at the part where your team flies the falcon into the Spire. As you near the spire, you will see Banshee's flying just before the Spire. On the left side, there is a Banshee that flies near the ground a lot and bumps into the ground. Follow this Banshee around until it dips low enough to get inside. Press and hold to hijack the Banshee.

Your Heresy Will Stay Your Feet25
Killed the Elite Zealot before he escaped during the 5th mission. (29) 

*Must be done on Normal or harder difficulty*
This is done on the mission called "Tip of the Spear". You can start at Rally Point Alpha. After you have cross the bridge with the Warthog, you will hear the AI say that there is a high value target is in the area. An "Elite Zealot". After you go up the stairs and come to a area that you see a turret at the end. Take a left, and this will put you inside of a very large open room. Stay there, and you will see the Elite Zealot come out with a Red Arrow above his head. Kill him quickly and this will be done.

If They Came To Hear Me Beg25
Performed an Assassination against an Elite to survive a fall that would've been fatal. (444) 

*Must be done on Normal or higher difficulty*
The easiest level to get this done on is right at the start of Pillar of Autumn. At the start, you will come to the edge of the cliff. If you look down, you will see a semi truck on the left and a car on the right. Between the semi truck and car, you will see a elite and three grunts. As soon as start the mission, Emile will say, "Race you to her". The Elite will back up and put you in reach to hit him. *Sprint off the cliff, and immediately hit to stop the sprint*. As you are falling, fall on his back. Just before you hit him, hold down to perform the assassination. This may take a couple tries.

* - You must stop the sprint as soon as you jump. The game still thinks you are running and doesn't recognize that it would be a height big enough to kill you.

Wake Up Buttercup25
Destroyed the Corvette's engines & escort in under 3 minutes in the 6th mission on Heroic or harder. (51) 

This is done on "Long Night of Solace". At the start, you will be protecting the ship from the enemies that are attacking it. After this, you will see the long purple Covenant Ship that you have to attack. Immediately go behind it and start shooting rockets at it's engines. Slow down by holding down on the to not approach the ship so quickly. After this is done, start taking out the enemies that they send out to attack you. Banshees can easily be taken out with the cannon, but the Seraphs are a different story. To easily take out Seraphs, use the cannon first to take out their shields, then hit them with one attack of the missiles. This will make them much easier and faster to deal with. Once there are only 5 enemy ships left, they will show up on your screen with red arrows pointing where they are. Take out the remaining ships to complete this.

Tank Beats Everything25
Finished the 9th mission on Legendary with the Scorpion intact. (57) 

During the 9th mission, you will see the Tank. Enter the tank and go through the level without it blowing up/becoming unusable. It is okay if it takes damage, just cannot be destroyed. Once you reach the familiar bunker, the achievement will unlock. You cannot skip the tank as the tank must reach the bunker.

Lucky Me25
Earned a Triple Kill while Jetpacking in Campaign, Firefight or Matchmaking. (29) 

*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.

KEEP IT CLEAN5
Killed 7 Moa during the 2nd mission of the Campaign. (59) 

*Must be done on Normal or higher difficulty*
You cannot die as it will reset you kill counter.

Moa are the birds that look just like ostriches. They are two legged creatures that you first encounter on the second mission, "Winter Contingency". You must kill them with bullets. If they are killed by AI fire or grenades. It will not count.

I Didn't Train To Be A Pilot10
Killed 3 of the anti-aircraft batteries during the 8th mission. (8) 

This will more then likely come from natural play. While playing through this mission with the Falcon, you will be shot at with anti-aircraft batteries (turrets). At the end of the mission you must take out 5 of these turrets.

Doctor, Doctor5

An Elegant Weapon10
Killed 10 enemies in a Firefight or Campaign session with the DMR. (12) 

The first place you find a DMR is during the second mission, "Winter Contingency". Once you get out of the Falcon, you will be told to "Retreat into the Relay Outpost" after defending it. After the cutscene, you will be put into a dark corridor. Immediately turn to your right, and you will see two DMR rifles on the gun rack on the wall.

You start the third mission, "ONI: Sword Base" with a DMR also.

Be My Wingman Anytime5
Let a teammate spawn on you 5 times in an Invasion Matchmaking game. (21)

And have your teammates rush a area and if they die, have them spawn on you. This must be done in one single Invasion game.

Yes, Sensei10
Earned a First Strike Medal in a Matchmaking game. (17) 

First Strike Medal: A First Strike Medal is to get the first kill in a matchmaking game. This may take some time and patience, but if you are comfortable with rushing and knowing a map/where the other team spawns. This should come easier, and if not, will come with time.

Skunked10
Won a game of Invasion in the 1st phase. (37) 

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.

What's A Killing Spree?5
Earned a Killing Spree in multiplayer Matchmaking. (19) 

Killing Spree Medal: A Killing Spree is to get 5 kills in a row without dying. It doesn't matter how far the kills are spaced out time wise, but you cannot die while getting the 5 kill streak. Here are some tips on killing enemies faster:

  • If you see a enemy around a corner, throw a grenade first to damage him, shoot him and/or melee him after. This is to cause damage first so if you both start shooting at the same time, he is already damaged and will die faster.
  • Crouching causes you to not appear on your enemies motion sensor. You can hide behind a corner if you see a enemy coming for you and assassinate him possibly once he walks by.
  • If the enemy is far away, try not bring attention to yourself and just start shooting. Plan where you are going to go and plan ahead.
  • If you can grab a Power Weapon like a Rocket Launcher or Sniper, and you know how to use them correctly, this should be easier for you.
  • Grabbing Active Camo/Invisibility can give you a huge edge as enemies won't see you, and you can go behind the enemy and kill him.
Crowd Control10
Earned a Killionaire medal in Firefight. (36) 

A Killionaire medal is to get 10 kills within 4 seconds of one another. This is easiest done when during a bonus round where there are a ton of grunts. Use a Rocket Launcher with the ammo setting put to "bottomless cup". Refer to "Heat in the Pipe" on more information.

DLC: Noble Map Pack
Cost: $9.99 USD Achievements: 7 Points: 250
 
Both Barrels50
Noble 1: Earn a Double Kill with the shotgun in multiplayer Matchmaking. (68) 

This achievement can only be unlocked in Matchmaking within any competitive playlist. The achievement requires you to earn a Double Kill medal (2 kills within 4 seconds of each other) with the Shotgun. The easiest playlist to get this achievement is within the Living Dead playlist, as you spawn with a shotgun if you are a human and the zombies are fairly easy to kill. This achievement can be unlocked on any map.

Cross-Mappin'50
Noble 1: Kill a player at long range with the DMR in a matchmade Slayer game. (220) 

This achievement can only be unlocked in Matchmaking within any competitive playlist that contains the Slayer game type. This achievement also requires the DMR weapon. The DMR weapon is usually the default weapon in Slayer, but can be found on any map. To unlock this achievement, you must kill an enemy using the DMR at a long range. You can tell if you're within the range when the reticule isn't red, but you're targeting the enemy. The kill doesn't need to be a headshot in order to count. The easiest playlist for this achievement is Big Team Battle, as there are more enemies, and you play on the bigger maps. This achievement can be unlocked on any map.

Offensive Driver20
Noble 1: Earn a kill in a matchmade Rocket Race game. (94) 

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.

Poppin' & Lockin'25
Noble 1: Destroy a vehicle using Armor Lock in a matchmade game. (69) 

This achievement can only be unlocked in Matchmaking within any competitive playlist that has a loadout with the Armor Lock ability and a vehicle. To get an Armor Lock kill, you must wait until an enemy vehicle (preferably a smaller vehicle, such as the Ghost or Mongoose) attempts to splatter you. Just before the vehicle hits, activate Armor Lock. If done properly, the vehicle should explode upon contact and you will get your achievement. The easiest playlist for this achievement is Big Team Battle, as there are more enemies and maps with vehicles on them.

Totally Worth It50
Noble 1: Earn a Double Kill from the Grave in multiplayer Matchmaking. (252) 

This achievement can only be unlocked in Matchmaking within any competitive playlist. This achievement requires you to earn a Double Kill medal (2 kills within 4 seconds of each other) by killing 2 enemies from Beyond the Grave (while waiting to respawn). This can prove rather difficult, so your best bet is to have a plasma grenade handy and get into a firefight with 2 enemies. Get them as close to each other as possible and let them take your shields and health away. When you're about to die, lob a plasma grenade into one of the enemies to stick him. Once you're dead and if you got them close enough together, the explosion will be enough to kill both enemies. This achievement can be rather difficult to do legitimately, so your best bet is to set up a boosting party and get the achievement that way (you can ask for help through the Achievement Trading Thread here). This achievement can be done on any map.

You Ate All the Chips42
Noble 1: Collect all of the flags in a matchmade Stockpile game. (1122) 

This achievement can only be unlocked in Matchmaking within any competitive playlist that contains the Stockpile gametype. To earn this achievement, your team must collect all 4 flags on the map and place them within your own capture point at the same time. In other words, before the timer for flag captures reaches zero, all the flags on the map must be within the capture point. If successful, the whole team gets the achievement. This is arguably the hardest achievement within the map pack, so unless you have a good team, it would probably be best to boost this achievement (you can ask for help through the Achievement Trading Thread here). This achievement can be done on any map.

You Blew It Up!13
Noble 1: Blow up the research facility in a matchmade Invasion game on Breakpoint. (686) 

This achievement can only be done within the Invasion playlist, and can only be done on the map Breakpoint, so all the players within an Invasion game must own the Noble DLC for this map to appear. All that is required for this achievement is for your team (which should be on Offense) to complete the second stage of Invasion, which is to blow up the research facility, revealing the core. The entire team gets credit for the achievement, but only one person needs to carry out the objective.

 
 
DLC: Defiant Map Pack
Cost: $9.99 USD Achievements: 6 Points: 200
 
Return to Sender30
Defiant: Successfully return two flags in a matchmade CTF game. (116) 

Find a CTF game in Matchmaking - The Team Objective playlist is best for this. Return two of your own flags that the opposite team have dropped. To return a flag, place your character near the flag and remain within the radius of the flag for about 5-10 seconds. This achievement can be done on any map.

Due to a glitch, all three Defiant Achievements can currently be unlocked in Custom Games. See Candy From a Baby for more details.

Crackin' Skulls45
Defiant: Kill 3 players with the Oddball in a matchmade Oddball game. (117) 

Head into Matchmaking and find an Oddball game. The Rumble Pit and Team Objective playlists have Oddball gametypes, but I recommend Rumble Pit as there are more enemies to kill. Once you're in a game, pick up the Oddball and melee three opponents with it. To melee, press the button that Melee is assigned to on your control scheme (e.g. for Default, for Recon, etc.). This achievement can be done on any map.

Due to a glitch, all 3 Defiant Achievements can currently be unlocked in Custom Games. See Candy From a Baby for more details.

Candy from a Baby75
Defiant: Capture two flags from an enemy capture zone in a matchmade Stockpile game. (243) 

Go into Matchmaking and find a Stockpile game. The Team Objective or Big Team playlists are best. Once you're in a game, wait for the opposite team to place a flag in their capture zone. Now, before the timer ticks to zero, take the flag within their capture zone, and place it within your team's capture zone. It doesn't matter how long you take as long as you don't drop the flag. Repeat this once more and the achievement is yours. This achievement can be done on any map.

Due to a glitch, all three Defiant Achievements can currently be unlocked in Custom Games. To do this glitch, you will need a boosting partner. Also, you must play each of the gametypes at least once in Matchmaking, or you can download the relevant gametypes HERE. Once you have the gametypes, depending on what option you chose to get the gametypes, perform this following step:

Matchmaking - If you got the gametypes from Matchmaking, go into Custom Games, press "Game Type", go into your Temporary History and select the game type you want.

Download - If you downloaded the gametypes from the thread, do the same as Matchmaking, except select the game type section from the list and select the game type you downloaded. DO NOT SELECT THE DEFAULT GAME TYPE AT THE TOP OF THE LIST!

Choose any map, start the game and follow the guide.

Don't Touch That!25
Defiant: Prevented the attacking team from touching the flag in a matchmade 1-Flag CTF game. (924) 

1-Flag CTF will almost always be on the "Condemned" map. With that said, you must prepare to play strong defense in order to prevent the enemy team from touching your flag. Use whatever you can - armor abilities, grenades, power weapons - to your advantage and do not stray too far from your flag, because this allows opportunity for the enemy to slip past you and simply touch the flag for even a second.

You must let the round's timer run out. If the enemy team has not touched the flag at all by the time the round is over, the achievement will unlock for everyone on the defending team.

Paper Beats Rock15
Defiant: Assassinated a player that just exited Armor-Lock in a matchmade game. (583) 

This is self-explanitory. You must play a match as you normally would, but when an enemy used the Armor-Lock, be ready to position yourself behind them. When they break free, try to assassinate them quickly before they can turn around.

All Alone10
Defiant: Was the last surviving uninfected player in a matchmade Infection game. (1231) 

This achievement will also be obtained on the "Condemned" map. As a human player, you must survive the round until you are the last player standing. You are given a Magnum and Shotgun as a human, so be sure to use the pistol for long-ranged kills on the Infected, and the Shotgun during close quarter situations.

There are no clear hiding spots on this map, but the room you spawn in has a glass platform overlooking the rest of the room. Climb the stairs, and hang around up here. This is probably the best area to hold out during the match.

 
 
DLC: Anniversary Map Pack
Cost: $14.99 USD Achievements: 7 Points: 250
 
Top Shot50
Anniversary: Earned 3 headshots in a row in a matchmade game. (92) 

The DMR or Magnum will be necessary to pull this off. Simply score three headshot kills in a row without dying. Use the DMR's accuracy and range to your advantage by staying back behind cover while picking the enemies off from afar.

Emergency Room15
Anniversary: Infected 3 players in a single round in a matchmade Infection game. (458) 

Search for an Infected game in the new Anniversary playlist. As an Infected, you must kill three human players in the same round. The human players are armed with magnums and shotguns and can prove to be quite the threat. Try to sneak up on them or overwhelm them with a direct assault with multiple Infected teammates in order to score your three kills.

Stick it to the Man!20
Anniversary: Killed the flag carrier with a Plasma Grenade in a matchmade game. (179) 

As the description says, simply stick - with a Plasma Grenade - an enemy flag carrier during a Capture The Flag game. The flag carrier cannot defend themselves unless they drop the flag. Use this to your advantage and try to stick them while they're back is turned or before they decide to drop the flag.

Dive Bomber50
Anniversary: Performed a Beat Down on an enemy while using the Jetpack during a matchmade game. (189) 

When the match begins, choose the loadout that contains the Jetpack armor ability. It takes two beat downs from the front, and one from the back to kill an enemy. Thrust your Jetpack upwards, and while your are descending, aim to melee strike the enemy from behind. Do not hold the melee button, or you will accidentally assassinate them, voiding the achievement in the process.

License to Kill15
Anniversary: Ran over 5 people with a vehicle in a matchmade game. (172) 

This achievement must be done on either the "Breakneck" or "Ridgeline" maps. The best vehicle to use would be the Ghost, as it has the boost-ability. Pilot the Ghost around the map during the match and aim to splatter 5 enemies before the game ends. To ensure all 5 kills register, try to use the same vehicle for the kills, meaning you will try to aim for a Splatter Spree while piloting the Ghost.

Bounty Hunter75
Anniversary: Captured 10 skulls at once in a matchmade Headhunter game. (575) 

In Headhunter, two teams are thrown against each other, with the goal of capturing skulls from the enemy team. Each player starts off with one skull. When you kill them, their skull will drop and you can pick it up. Once you have 2+ skulls in your possession, there will be a waypoint over your head that says how many you have.

If you kill an enemy who has 6 skulls on them, they will drop all 6. Simply round up 10 skulls and bring them to the marked "safe-zone" in order to score them. Scoring 10 skulls at once will end the game right away.

From Hell's Heart25
Anniversary: Killed an enemy with their own grenade that was stuck to you in a matchmade game. (206) 

This is a great achievement that can be extremely fun while trying to obtain. You will essentially have to allow yourself to get stuck by an enemy's Plasma Grenade. You will also need to hope that this enemy is very close to you, in order to sprint up to them, which will allow the explosion to kill you both. The achievement will unlock once you have both died from the same grenade.
