    Quick updated method:

    As of June 2015 it seems one can not just quit and get a win, instead having to fully finish the match. Thankfully I found a cheap method around this, and it seems to be faster than the quit out method.

    By loading up Forge on Halo 3 (I suppose it could be any map, but I chose Construct as the map, and Multi-Flag as the mode), just delete the opposite teams starting points. Leave one group. They're easy to spot because they have a blue floaty aura above them, as opposed to being regular arrows that indicate regular spawns. Afterwards save your map.

    When you load the map/mode up, you should get a black screen with the scoreboard saying you won (It's so fast the announcer says "Game over...capture the flag!"). Fast and easy!

    Hope that helps everyone out. No one seemed to be posting about these wins for those of us that still need them and were too lazy to get them out of the way sooner.

    Good luck! toast


    Update: Here are the new steps to access my file share (as of September 2018) to help you get started (Credit to tknology)

    1) First, load up MCC with one controller and your account. No need for second controller.
    2) Press X to open the Roster.
    3) Select your player card and press A.
    4) Select "Find Player" and press A.
    5) Type 'Fooga' in the text box that comes up and press Start. You should now be on Fooga's 'Player Details' page.
    6) Select "File Share" and press A.
    7) Select "Map Variants" and press A.
    8) Select "Construct Win Boost" and press A. Press A a second time, select "Yes" on the prompt and press A a third time. Dismiss the notification that the download is complete.
    9) Now back all the way out to MCC's main menu.
    10) Choose Multiplayer > Custom Games > Halo 3.
    11) For MAP, choose Construct > Win Boost
    12) For Game Type, choose Capture The Flag > Multi-Flag
    13) Hit A on Options (no need to change anything)
    14) Hit A to Start Game.
    15) Once game starts, you'll get an automatic win and it loads the Carnage Report. Hit B to back out of Carnage Report. Re-select the map (Construct > Win Boost). Press RB twice to select 'Start'. Hit A to Start Game.

    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!

    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.
