    Estimating 30 meters is the hardest part of this achievement. In the video I made I show approximately where to throw from and earn yourself a cool 25G. I came in from the Red Spawn (as stated in video) but coming from Blue Base its the same Idea.

    This is a very similar video i found to get this achievement.

    The place it is thrown from in the video is more than 30 meters so you could get the achievement from a closer distance.

    Hey everyone. These title update achievements are supposed to be fairly easy to get legitimately, but if you’d rather boost them I’ve got a tip to help you match up with your boosting partners.

    1. Go into Infinity and then War Games.
    2. Hit the cn_start button to bring up the Spartan Hub.
    3. Go down into Settings and Files then slide over to the Network tab on the right.
    4. Hit cn_A to open this tab and change you settings to Xbox Live (Party Only).
    5. Search for you partners in Team Objective and play a game of Ricochet.
    6. Follow one of these awesome guides provided by other TA’ers to get the achievements you’re looking for.

    Doing this will make matching up much easier. It is not perfect. You will still match with randoms, but it is far more likely to match you up with your boosting partners this way than just searching for them without changing this session. Me and 3 others with multiple controllers just finished of the Title update cheevos this way. We matched with randoms 3 times. Just hit cn_B to back out and search again.

    IMPORTANT NOTE: If you have to hit cn_B to back out or after you finish a match, before starting up your search again you will have to change the setting again. After you back out of a search or finish a match the game goes back to default Xbox Live search. This also means that if you finish a match with your partners the system will automatically match you with randoms for the next match forcing you to back out.

    Thanks to AchievementLuvr, Killerfox Uru, and Fastest Slug for helping me test this method out!

    I decide to post a newer solution for anyone still searching for ricochet achievements, since many of the playlists and gametype available have changed over the years.

    The From Down Town, Hat Trick, and Protect This House Ricochet achievements can all be done in the Grifball playlist. You're looking for the game variant Field Grifball. (any map should work, only important thing is the gametype variant)

    Boosting method: 8 player party needed, only 2 players allowed per console. (so minimum 4 friends on xbox live with an extra controller each). Then simply take turns running through the necessary requirements to gain the achievements . (if you play with 4 friends, and 4 afk controllers, there's enough time and points available to get all 3 achievements for all 4 players in one game).

    Normal method: Try searching for a game in the Grifball playlist and hope the vote picks a Field Grifball map variant. The only achievement that becomes very unlikely without boosting is Protect This House , since you can only score in field grifball by throwing, so there's no need for the enemy team to get within 5m of the goal.

    This solution works as of March 4th, 2019. My group found it was the quickest playlist to provide the gametype we needed. (having spent hours trying to find ricochet in team objective and team action sack)
Do you have a question about this achievement? Please post it in the Halo 4 Forum
