    I think the Achievement description is just wrong. You have to play either Campaign or Halo 2 Classic multiplayer, either custom or matchmaking. If you play multiplayer the Achievement pops as soon as the game starts.

    I was able to find a match in the Halo 2 Classic playlist without a problem today.

    MorgurtTheRound notes that you can also earn this in Forge for Halo 2: Anniversary, though I haven't tried it myself. Presumably this is what the Achievement description was supposed to refer to.

    MorgurtTheRoundThis can also be accomplished in Forge. The achievement pops as soon as whatever level you’ve selected begins to load.

    iagoBeware that using Quick Resume on a Series S|X messes with this achievement, I had to close the game, restart and load into the campaign again for it to pop.

    So I just tried to unlock this on the 9th of December and had an issue. I loaded a custom match of H2:Anniversary and nothing happened. Tried a second time with the same result. If this happens, back out and load a custom game of H2 Classic and it should pop.

    DOW4Can confirm it pops in campaign. My custom game on Zenith and my match-made game on Zenith didn't do it for some reason.

    ToKi N O HaKaII played a matchmaking game, after a custom game (both Halo 2A), and then a classic custom Halo 2 and achievement unlocked. So it seems faster in campaign...

    To unlock this achievement you must load up Halo: 2 Classic (seems as though its glitched) on the 9th of any month, quite simple.

    If you want to unlock it on any other date you can do so offline. Now this doesn't just mean you disconnect yourself and do it, you must first follow a few steps.

    First going into your settings by hitting the button towards the middle of your controller with 3 lines across it (otherwise known as the start button).

    Second go into Network.

    Third "Go offline" and "forget wireless network"

    Then you are going to need to hard turn off your Xbox by holding the power button for 10 seconds.

    Once you turn it back on go back into settings, then system, to the way right you will be able to click on your date and change it to any day you want. For this achievement you change it to the 9th.

    Load the game up and start Halo: 2 Anniversary, quit out once it loads up, reconnect yourself back to the internet and it will unlock for you. smile

    If you want this quick and easy, just go to Playlists, Halo 2, and pick one. Just start it, and it should pop.

    IT HAS TO BE DONE ON THE 9TH OF ANY MONTH! Otherwise, it's not going to pop.
