    If you don't have 4 Xbox One controllers, an alternate way to get this achievement is by using the Xbox streaming feature on Windows 10. Both Xbox One and Xbox 360 controllers can be used on this app, meaning that if you have a few 360 controllers around (and the means to use them on PC), then you can use them as other players on The Master Chief collection. Simply sign them in and load up a Halo: CE capture the flag custom game on Blood Gulch.

    Wired 360 controllers should work straight away via USB, but wireless controllers will require a receiver adapter.

    FeonyxFYI: A Tri-tip is a subprimal cut of beef, and due its affordability is known to be used in children's school cafeteria lunches in parts of the United States. [halopedia] hence playing 4 players all on the same screen and school lunches.

    You'll want to get a few friends together with their controllers, or if you happen to own 4 controllers (I did) then you can get this by yourself.

    You can have either guests signed in, or if doing it with friends, have all four accounts signed in. Everyone will get the achievement as soon as the match starts. I have some friends that don't have a way to get 4 controllers together, so I signed them in to mine, matched a controller to each, and did all 4 at the same time.

    Little clip of setting up the match, with the 4 accounts signed in.

    Just went to custom game, Halo CE, Blood Gultch, Capture The Flag, CTF, left everything else and started the match.

    Ok guys, I found a solution that may help you in case you own just 2 or 3 controllers. What we're going to do, assuming you have a Windows 10 PC (we basically need the xbox app through which we will stream our xbox one game), is to emulate the xbox controllers that we don't have. We're going to do that through these programs:

    - Vjoystick
    - UCR
    - Xbox 360 controller driver

    As lightsup55 pointed out, there's no need for Xbox 360 controller drivers on Windows 10 but I'll leave the link anyway, you never know :P

    Now, here's what you need to do:

    * Install both Vjoystick and driver for Xbox 360 controller.
    * Extract UCR and launch it.
    * Click on IOclasses---->Vjoy---->install SCPVbus.
    * Time to program buttons. For the purpose of this achievement we don't need to move or shoot through the emulated controller/s but all we need is using them to select a dummy profile so we will only program these buttons: cn_A cn_up cn_down


    To program emulted controller number 1:

    1. On the window Plugin Selection choose Remapper (Button to Button) and click "Add".
    2. Name it whatever you want but to make it simple to recognize I suggest "A 1st controller".
    3. Click on Input Button and press whatever key you'd like to assign to Xbox A button. For guide purposes (even if I used the very same button assignment) I choose "Q".
    4. Click on Output Button---->Vxbox stick---->1 (as we're mapping buttons for the 1st emulated controller). Click AGAIN on Output Button but this time select "Vxbox Buttons" (#) and select the button you want to assign (in our case, the first one we assign is "A").

    Now simply repeat these steps for the other buttons. NOTICE that when you need to assign D-pad buttons you'll have to select "Vxbox D-pad" in step 4 (#) instead of "Vxbox Buttons".

    I own 3 controllers so I emulated just one with this configuration:
    Q-----> cn_A
    W and S----> cn_up and cn_down

    If you need to emulate a second controller the steps are the same with the only difference that you need to select "Vxbox stick 2" in the output button (and name the buttons "A 2nd controller", "UP 2nd controller" and so on).

    Once you have assigned all the needed xbox buttons you will want to check everything is working by going on Control Panel---->Devices and Printers.
    You'll see one or more xbox 360 controllers icons depending on how many you are emulating. Right-Click on it and select gaming device settings.
    Highlight "Controller (Xbox 360 for Windows)" and click on properties.
    Now when pressing the buttons you remapped on your keybord you will see the red circles on the properties window illuminating hence everything is working fine.

    (As suggested by x1001x Puppys, you might need to restart your pc if you get issues with your assigned buttons)

    ________________________________________________________________

    Alright, all the mapping and settings part is done (I know, it's boring but better than buying controllers you probably don't need just for one achievement) so now it's time to unlock the achievement.

    1. Turn ON your console.
    2. Launch Xbox App on your PC and start streaming your console on the computer.
    3. Launch Halo MCC, go in custom games and select CTF and Blood Gulch but DON'T start the match yet.
    4. Now press the remapped A button of your emulated controller/s on your PC keyboard and select (with remapped d-pad buttons which in my case were W and S) add guest profile.
    5. Once you see all 4 lobby spots full, start the game and the achievement will pop.

    Am I only one who can't get it to work?
    Apparently yes. So far everyone who followed my guide exactly as written didn't have any problem.
