    There are 12 achievements worth 120G for completing 500 games and there are 11 achievements worth 105 G for winning 500 games. In total there is 23 achievements worth 225 gamerscore for playing/winning 500 Custom or matchmade games for Halo: TMCC. This is a guide to obtain all of those achievements, plus I will list off all multiplayer achievements you can do in custom games, organized in what the requirements are to doing them.

    The first thing I need let you know, if you plan on doing ALL multiplayer/custom achievements you should unlock the ones below first because they will give you progress towards the wins/games played achievements (it can save you 30 minutes to and hour by doing these first)

    (Matchmaking only)
    Halo: The Master Chief CollectionZealotThe Zealot achievement in Halo: The Master Chief Collection worth 42 pointsHalo 2A MP: In Anniversary matchmaking, win 10 games as an Elite.


    (Read walk-through first before doing these, then use the method to get these)
    *** Spoiler - click to reveal ***


    This achievement will give you games won/played towards all 23 achievements, if you don't want to and just knock these out of the way then follow this guide!

    I don't know if anyone has mentioned this but it is still possible to end the game early on forge and have it count as a victory. I tested it with halo 2,3, and 4.

    Halo 2 anniversary custom. Lockout, slayer, start game. pause and end game after match loads. works solo. halo 3 custom works... halo 4 also works... just quitting out as soon as u can

    This isn't the only multiplayer achievements that can be done in Custom, I have compiled a list of all the achievements and what you need to get them. Take a look:

    Needed: 1 controller (can be done all by yourself):

    Needed: A willing friend or 2 controllers:

    Needed: A willing friend or another controller (best done in forge)

    *** Spoiler - click to reveal ***


    Needed: 2 willing friends or another 2 controllers

    Needed: a willing friend who has the Legendary Anniversary achievement:

    Halo: The Master Chief CollectionLegend SlayerThe Legend Slayer achievement in Halo: The Master Chief Collection worth 18 pointsHalo 2A MP: Kill an opponent that has the Legendary Anniversary achievement.


    I hope this list helps everyone into doing all multiplayer that is achievable in Custom matches, I finished them yesterday and its good to know I don't have to play multiplayer anymore if I don't want to.

    For this last achievement you can do it with another friend (having 3 controllers in total meaning one of you having 2 controllers in possession).

    OR

    Having 3 controllers and doing everything yourself which would be extremely difficult

    OR

    Having 1 controller and splattering an enemy in Campaign (extremely difficult also)

    Halo: The Master Chief CollectionAirborneThe Airborne achievement in Halo: The Master Chief Collection worth 55 pointsHalo CE: Launch a Warthog for at least 5 seconds and have it splatter an enemy.


    If my guide to all custom multiplayer achievements has flaws or can be improved please comment or message me and I will fix it immediately.

    Good luck to everyone and have fun! toast

    S0PH0SA few tips that I've noticed for those that are looking to just enter/end games in succession for these achievements are the following:
    1) the game shows using the LB/RB buttons to move through the different setup stages to get to the start, but this requires distinct presses of the bumper buttons - you can simply hold the LS to the right and it will quickly skip across to the start button and then you can click A.
    2) I've also noted that while in the process of starting custom multiplayer or forge games if you press the Xbox button to bring up the Xbox menu, tab over to the achievements tab and check your halo achievements progress and return to your custom/forge matches - the matches will automatically start you in the leave/end game menu rather than starting the match and having to press the menu button.
    These can make the game cycling just a little bit quicker!

    MasterCrafty77I started clocking up some multiplayer games / wins - but now match making is not working at all. I am playing on Xbox / Gamepass with Halo CE MCC... Is matchmaking broken?

    I read some comments about downloading updates - but there are no updates to load...

    I cannot find any kind of a multiplayer match so am stuck on this achievement - (I have all relays turned off) anything else I am missing?

    This is a guide on how to get all the "Win X multiplayer games" achievements and "Complete X missions or multiplayer games."


    It is better to play the game first and do these last, but if you just want to get them out of the way, or are worried that the amount of fan boy complaints are going to make 343 Industries patch this, then, like myself, you can do this first before doing anything else.



    Start up your game, and from the main menu, move your cn_right / cn_LSr, and then either press cn_A or move cn_down / cn_LSd. Then move your cn_right / cn_LSr, and then either press cn_A or move cn_down / cn_LSd. Then press cn_A + cn_A + cn_A + cn_A + cn_A through the options, and once again press cn_A to accept options. And finally, press cn_A one last time to start the game, causing a 5 second timer to go off. As soon as the announcer says, "Slayer," press cn_start and move cn_right /cn_LSr and press cn_A on the menu for End Game. Then move cn_left /cn_LSl, and press cn_A to choose Yes.

    In game, it will say "You Won" under your ammo counter, and if you have the achievement app snapped like I do, it will go up a tiny bit, showing you that you gained progress.

    Once at the score screen, just press cn_B, and then you will be at the screen that is ready to start again. Just press cn_A again to start, and repeat steps from there.

    You can get about 1 game a minute done this way while watching videos, possibly faster once you get your hands used to it.

    And no, this is not bannable. I have checked both the 343 and Microsoft ToS (which is why I allowed my Gamertag to be shown in the video).

    I have found the quickest way to get this achievement is to go into muti-player and select custom games, then select Halo 2 classic mode as there is hardly any loading on the old maps. You can get each game done in around 20 seconds by yourself, be sure to end your game as if you quit out it will not count. At the title screen press b to go back and then start another game. This will stack with all the other win/games played achievements. I won't be surprised if this gets patched soon, so get them games in.
