Welcome to Halo Wars, the prequal to the Halo series which brings RTS to the series, exclusively on the Xbox 360.

This game has a rather easy set of 43 achievements and 7 which make you want to scream. It will take roughly 30-40 hours to get all the achievements apart from the "Running The Show" achievement which requires 3.2 million exp on xbox live. You get roughly 2000-3000 exp per 2 hour game, same this achievement will take many hours to unlock.

Step #1: Campaign
If you want to mop up the campaign in one play through you will need to play on the hardest difficulty, on co-op. Whilst you're playing through the campaign, every single mission requires you to get the following:

- A Skull
- A Black Box
- A Gold Medal
- Finish In Par Time
- An achievement worth 5 points

To get the skulls you will be given a secondary objective to kill a certain amount of a particular units, then it will show up. The black boxes are in set locations.

Gold Medals are very tough to get, they require you to finish the level with a specific score, doing all secondary objectives and killing plenty of units, using skulls, and doing so quickly will allow you to do this.

The par times are all set and are usually around 30 minutes, a full list can be found under the "Mr. Punctual" achievement.

Although the game can be completed in one playthrough I recommended that you take two playthroughs to get the single player achievements. The first one being on easy with a co-op partner, getting all skulls, black boxes and gold medals, and the second completing the game on legendary within par time.

Step #2: Skirmish Mode
There are 7 achievements that must be completed in Skirmish mode, they are:

- "Playin' The Field"
- "Gallivant Around The Galaxy"
- "Empire Builder"
- "Titan"
- "Big Al's Scooter"
- "Penny Pincher"
- "My Virtual Friends Love Me".

Start with "Empire Builder" by winning one Standard game and one Deathmatch game. Then win a game with each leader for "Playin' The Field", play each leader on a different map to work towards the "Gallivant Around The Galaxy" achievement, play against easy computers on the Deathmatch mode for faster wins.

Win a skirmish game with 20,000 or more points for the "Titan" achievement, then win a 3v3 game for the "My Virtual Friends Love Me" achievement. Finally unlock the "Big Al's Scooter" and "Penny Pincher" achievements in the same game against an AI set to the Heroic difficulty.

You can also unlock the "Walk-Off Winner" and "2 Bugs Are Better Than 1" achievements in skirmish mode, or on Xbox Live if you prefer.

Step #3: Xbox Live
There are 5 achievements that must be completed over Xbox Live, they are:

- "N00b N0 M0r3"
- "So Lonely At The Top"
- "Basically Naive"
- "Officer On Deck"
- "Running The Show"

First get the "N00b N0 M0r3" achievement by simply being in the winning team in a game, when you win your first game you will also get "Basically Naive" achievement.

Next win a game and be ranked first to get the "So Lonely At The Top" achievement. Get 800,000 exp online to become a Lieutenant and unlock the "Officer on Deck" achievement.

Finally unlock the "Running The Show" achievement by reaching 960,000 EXP. This will require many hours spent playing online matches.

Step #4: Mop Up
If you've found all of the black boxes, and skulls in the campaign, finished all missions within par times on Heroic, have gold medals on every missions, and all Skirmish achievements unlocked, you will unlock the "Ready For The Sequel" Achievement.

Now all that's left to do is reach 24 hours of playtime, only time spent in matches counts. Finally you should unlock the "Crushed Colors" and "Own Worst Enemy" achievements.

Strategic Operations

Step 1: Start on the three easy achievements.

You'll be working on getting the following achievements:

Pull Hard, Pull Deep
Freak on a Streak
Living Loving Bug

Use the guide on how to obtain these achievements. Remember that they can all be done on Easy difficulty. Also try and work on Freak on a Streak and Living Loving Bug in the same match. At the most it should take you 3 matches to get these.

Step 2: One and Done achievement.

This achievement can only be unlocked on Legendary difficulty. Don't worry, as long as you use the method listed in the guide you shouldn't have too much difficulty. Remember to be patient and keep at it. I got it on my third attempt. Sometimes the AI will react the way the guide describes they will and sometimes they wont. If the AI starts giving you trouble just quit out and restart your match.

Historical Battle

Step 1: Online boosting mode

All four of these achievements can be easily obtained online with a boosting partner. Just set up a private match and use the "online mode" description to unlock these achievements. Each achievement is tied to a specific map so make sure you use the map described in the achievement. Remember to look for a online boosting partner HERE.

Step 2: Offline mode
If you're unable to boost these online no worries. You can do every achievement offline vs the AI. All can be done on easy difficulty but it's recommended to do Killjoy on Normal. Stick to the methods described in the guide and you shouldn't have any problems.

If you've reached this point and have the full 1,000 then congratulations, you have a lot more patience with this game then most people. Beating it on Legendary and earning 3.2 million exp is no easy task.

If you are a completionist, be prepared for a lot of games. Other than a few achievements, the game is pretty easy and straight forward, but expect to spend a lot of time when going for the "Running The Show" achievement.

If you get all Gold Medal scores you will earn 591,000 points. Do all gold medals on one difficulty then do them on another to get two Gold Medal scores for each level until you hit 1 million.

Everything's Better with Bacon5
Mission 1: Ram 50 Grunts with Warthogs   (27) 

This achievement can be tricky. Do the mission on Heroic, ram the units and retreat, let the ability recharge and repeat. You must kill the enemy before the AI do. When you get another Warthog, use that instead of Forge as it wont kill the enemy as easily and give you more grunts to ram.

Activating the following skulls will also help:

- Rebel Sympathizer

- Sugar Cookies
- Emperor

Endless Fun5
Mission 2: Destroy every Methane Tank   (3)

If they get harmed, use healing powers. Construct a base and train 2 Wolverines and one Scorpion, base those next to the Rhinos you need to protect. Best done on Easy.

Best way to do this is don't move your units, just keep Mach Blasting the Scarab until it falls, this method can only be done on easy.

Ramblin' Man5
Mission 8: Use Elephants to train 100 Infantry   (5) 

Do this on Legendary, set an Elephant's rally point to a heavily populated flood area and just keep spawning them until this unlocks. Your infantry will die leaving you more population to create more.

Sweet Naptime5
Mission 9: Put every Colony in Hibernation Mode at the same time   (3) 

Build 10 Hornets and go around the map and kill all the big infections. Once you kill one you will get a sub mission and a map directing you to all of them. You will be notified when you kill one and it will gray out on the map. When they are all dead make sure they all stay that way and proceed to the boss you have to kill. Shoot it a couple of time with your hornets and it will die. Easiest done on Easy difficulty.

The Procrastinator5
Mission 10: Disrupt all Tractor Beams   (3) 

There are four tractor beams on the map, one in each corner, clear the paths to and the areas around the tractor beams to make way for the vehicles you use to disrupt them. Make sure you only clear the top and bottom swarms so you can get to the final two before the mission ends.

Mission 11: Save all the Airlocks   (3) 

Do this on easy, build turrets around the airlocks, make plenty of flying units and destroy everything as quickly as possible, make sure they're still destroyed when the ring passes.

Handy with Tools5
Mission 12: Repair the Power Core in less than 4 minutes   (4) 

Firstly direct all the Cyclops's you have to the core. Then go to the right of the map and select the airlock and spawn as many Cyclops's as you can and as soon as they spawn direct them to the power core.

Its essential to use health on the power core as soon as it becomes available. Easiest done on Easy in co-op.

Use the skulls Bountiful Harvest and Pain Train, they will reduce training times by 50 and make resources come in 25% faster.

Beaming with Pride5
Mission 13: Destroy 25 units with the Scarab   (1) 

On the far east side of the map is an abandoned Scarab, simply kill the roots near it to free it and then jack it with your spartan, it becomes yours. Use it to kill 25 units.

Didn't Get To Second Base5
Mission 14: Don't claim an extra base   (4)

DLC: Strategic Options
Price: $9.99 USD Achievements: 4 Points: 100
One and Done30
Score the winning point in a game of Keepaway against Legendary AIs.     (15) 

This is best done on the 1 vs 1 map Chasms. Use the Arbiter for this one. Set the AI to Legendary, of course, and have Captain Cutter be your opponent.

As soon as the game starts, build a temple and three supply pads. Scout with your Ghost for supplies, there are a lot near your base, and about 60 to 90 supplies in the center; collect those with your Ghost and move the Arbiter to the center of the map and wait. While you wait you can build a fourth supply pad, there is no need to upgrade to a Citadel.

By the time the Sentinel spawns (the flag), you can almost instantly grab it with Arby. Grab it and go camp at the back of your base, and wait. You will notice a timer running, that is how long it will actually take for capture the flag completely and have a point added to your score. You need three points to win.

Upgrade one of your supply pads every now and then, in case Arby needs to get into rage mode, but personally I never had to do this.

Now, when the timer has passed and you are rewarded a point, go back to the middle with Arby. Give him the upgrades ''Fiendish Return'' and '"Defiant Rage'' if needed, found at your Temple, and wait for the Sentinel and capture it, again camping at the back of your base. Repeat one more time.

Cutter will almost never send his units to you, he will be too busy building up his base. But if you really really want to be sure, listen to the AI about what kind of units Cutter makes, and build two turrets at the front to counter appropriately.

You will be rewarded the achievement after three Sentinel captures.

Pull Hard, Pull Deep20
Win and never trail in a Tug of War game.     (13) 

Again, play as the Arbiter, with your opponent being Cutter and the AI set to Easy. Choose the map Chasms, build a temple and two supply pads ASAP, and then have your Ghost attack the enemy base ASAP as well. Destroy the Warthog, so it cannot gather supplies. Follow it if needs be.

When the warthog is gone, have the Ghost attack the (probably only) building the enemy has, (make sure it's a reactor). By this time your Arbiter should be ready and on his way to help destroy Cutter's base. If Cutter starts to build supply pads, focus all your attention on that, do not give him a chance to get supplies. Make sure his supply pads do not complete their building cycle. If he starts building something, have Arbiter trash it up before it completes! If the enemy Warthog is destroyed, and the enemy base as well, you are victorious and are granted this achievement.

Freak on a Streak20
Gain at least 15 population from a single wave in a Reinforcement game.     (4) 

You will most likely get this the same time as ''Living Loving Bug'' as a Scarab takes up 20 population. If not, then just have a lot of supplies and population free and hope for the best. If you need to get rid of units, use the ''Prophet Cleansing Beam'' method described in the help for ''Living Loving Bug.

Living Loving Bug30
Get a Scarab during a Reinforcement game.     (13) 

Play as the Covenant, preferably The Prophet Of Regret, set your opponent to be Captain Cutter. Set the opponent AI to Easy to make it easier for you.

Build supply pads only, upgrading them, and a temple, and upgrade your ages (upgrade found at the Temple, Age of Doubt first and then the Age of Reclamation) so you get tech level (the lightning bolt in the top-left corner) to three - this will require two ''Age'' upgrades. Also, capturing a second base is almost mandatory and increasing your population (this upgrade can be found in the Temple as well) helps too.

Kill any unit you might get using the Prophet's Cleansing Beam if your population is over 20. Make sure you have enough population room and enough supply to ''Buy'' a Scarab. I know you can't buy units, but you need the supplies. So have 4,000 supplies in reserve and 20 population available.

Then just hope you get a Scarab instead of a lot of Wraiths or anything else. If you have too many units and they take up too much population, the Prophet's Cleansing Beam is your friend. Kill your own units with it if needed.
