    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).

    Edit: Like Gazelle found out the following:

    I noticed significantly loading time differences between Classic and Anniversary 2.

    For example, loading Classic 2 on Midship is much faster than loading Lockdown on Anniversary 2.

    Would save a lot of time over the course of 500.

    TheLankeyGuyI just had this and all the complete X amount of missions or multiplayer achievements pop at once and not even in the right order. All I did was start the game up on PC to get the Remember Reach achievement

    Im Just MaccorYes these are definitely dodgy achievements. Ive gone from doing 400 missions/games to now doing 500 missions/games even though I did 2 legendary missions 🤔 not complaining though 😂

    d0x360Wow... Cheating. Guess what doing this does! It puts you into mp games with people that like to quit early (like when they are losing) and people who have been temp suspended for doing stupid and or bad stuff in matches.

    So basically you will be stuck playing with the worst people possible and you will NEVER get out of that group for the game you're playing.

    Xbl has a match making system that does this automatically and it can be tweaked for each game.

    So if you like mp... Don't follow this guide. It will ruin it for you.

    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 43 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

    *** Spoiler - click to reveal ***

    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):

    *** Spoiler - click to reveal ***

    Needed: A willing friend or 2 controllers:

    *** Spoiler - click to reveal ***

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

    *** Spoiler - click to reveal ***

    Needed: 2 willing friends or another 2 controllers

    *** Spoiler - click to reveal ***

    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).


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


    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

    Strategy OneI don't believe its patched yet.

    Strategy OneWell the quit out part is what makes it really fast, also that your able to do it solo.. If they fix those 2 things then it will require you to do with 1 other person and who knows if you can do the quit out method. So yes... It definitely can be fixed.

    RoymondoooThe quitting out of games to get wins has been patched with today's update (30-5-2015) I tried it and my percentage bar wasn't going up. If anyone else can confirm this or if it is still working for anyone let me know and other people

    If you want a easier way to boost this achievement. I made a map and gametype that is an instant win. So all you have to do is hit B + A every 30 seconds or so after all the loading is done.

    I'm not sure how to find or link to it, but if you search my gamer tag @ Bukowskaii you can find the Map and Gametype "WINFARM"
