How to unlock the Bite The Hand achievement

    This is a viral achievement gained in multiplayer by killing a player that already has it.

    The prevalence of this achievement is very high (over 90% of TA players who have started this title update have it *Edit* this was the percentage before TA included TUs as part of the main game. Even now, it's still around 80%) and you will very likely get this in the first game you play, in fact I got it on my very first kill.

    To increase your chance of getting kills, I recommend team play and 'stealing' someone else's kill. Try and get the head shot on an opponent with downed shields. Other ways to get easy kills are to use vehicles or camp by a doorway and melee an unsuspecting enemy in the back when he runs through.

    This achievement will definitely come with time. Good luck!

    - This achievement is ONLY obtainable in Social Games or Competitive Games matchmaking.
    - Input-based matchmaking, platform-based matchmaking, and region selection does make a difference when boosting this with a friend in a 1v1 social game. If both players use the same type of input device, play on the same platform, and/or connect using only specific regions, you can increase your chances of matching up almost every time. This is a new feature added (as of 17 November 2020) to allow cross-play between Xbox One and PC players regardless of the input device used. You can customize these restrictions via Options & Career -> Settings -> Networking.

    The quickest and easiest method to unlock this achievement is in Social Games matchmaking.
    1) Find another player that already has this achievement unlocked
    2) Click Multiplayer
    3) Click Social Games
    4) Change the Game Size to 1v1
    5) Under Games Included, uncheck Halo: Reach
    6) Under Games Included, uncheck Halo: Combat Evolved
    7) Under Games Included, uncheck Halo 2: Classic
    8) Under Games Included, check Halo 2: Anniversary (this is required for other achievements anyway)
    9) Under Games Included, uncheck Halo 3
    10) Under Games Included, uncheck Halo 4
    11) Under Game Categories Included, check Precision Slayer
    12) Go back to the top and highlight (mouse over) PLAY, but DO NOT click on it yet
    13) At this point, you will need to have the other player repeat the same steps above.
    14) Once both players are ready, have one of the players do a countdown in voice chat (i.e. 3, 2, 1, GO!)
    15) On GO!, both players will click PLAY to start matchmaking
    16) If done properly, both players will be in the same 1v1 match together

    Once the match starts, have both players meet in the same spot (typically in the center of the map). The player going for the achievement will only need to kill the other player. Achievement unlocked!

    ***Steam users: Please note that it may take a bit longer for the achievement to unlock as Xbox One achievements require confirmation via Xbox Live. More information: Problems with Xbox One achievements and challenges ***
