    This Achievement is awarded for uncovering an easter egg that has shown up in multiple Halo games.

    To unlock it:
    From the main menu, select Multiplayer
    Then select Custom Games
    Select Halo: CE
    Select any map
    Click the right thumbstick to bring up the file save options
    Enter ".fortune" as the file name (without the quotes, and note the period at the beginning)
    A fortune/proverb will appear and the Achievement will pop.

    You can do it multiple times to see different proverbs.

    KobiMinamFor those playing on PC, not sure what to do without a right thumbstick, here's instructions: When you get to the "Gametype" and "Options" selection areas, in the bottom middle of the screen should be an option called "File Options". It might not appear until you change some of the settings (vehicle respawn time, etc.). Click that and enter the .fortune then save to get the achievement.

    From the main menu select "Multiplayer" then "Custom Games". Now select "Halo CE", and then select any map. While on the Game type tab, click in the right stick, select "Save As", and name the file ".fortune" and enter. When you do this, you will get an error message within Halo MCC, and the achievement will unlock.

    Here is an achievement guide with English commentary. Essentially, you have to set up a custom game and in the options tab rename the file to ".fortune"
