    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.

    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

    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

    *** 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 19 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 56 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

    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"

    I just want to add on, that the custom games method still works even after Nov 20th patch, even though it states in the patch notes "Made an update to prevent players from gaining achievements in Forge". Im not sure if they can be achieveed in forge, however i can confirm this achievement can still be unlocked through custom games.

    I gained my 150-500 played games in about 5 minutes.

    Completed Halo 2 in coop, my profile was the secondary signed in.

    Went into Campaign - Halo 2 - scrolled trough missions - Pressed B to back out - back into Halo 2 and just rinse and repeat until i got my 500. Got no idea what triggered this and it did not work for my gf.

    Feel free to try it out

    This one glitched for me on the latest update. I unlocked all these from around 150 to 500 in 2 minutes. Heses what I think may do it if recreated.

    This was on the newest patch, I started to set up a mission from the main screen. I selected halo ce, then the silent cartographer. I then selected heroic then 2 skulls bandana and boon. Then I went to the start tab but didn't starts. This should give you a warning about a skill with a zero multiplier. I then pressed B over and over until I hit the main menu.

    This give me around 50 games each. I did it a few more times and the whole set unlocked.

    If anyone can confirm or deny this works again I will update the solution. Also if anyone does get it to work again and would like to make a video then I will happily add it.
