    This one is neat, load up Foundry in Custom Games or Forge (though I got in Customs). Then go to this spot on the map and zoom in on the trash. See pictures for what I'm saying, shoot it for the achievement! Images courtesy of Gamerheadquarters

    adraedinI didn't find it necessary to shoot - I just zoomed in and waited about 5-10 seconds.

    Load up a Multiplayer Custom Game in Halo 3 on the map Foundry. Go to the top center area of the map, and go to the side labelled B. On the floor, next to the box, not far from the semi-truck you will find a small pile of trash. Walk up to it, and inspect it using zoom. Shoot the small dark purple hippo to get the achievement.

    JamPound32You say go to B side but it's on the A side. By that I mean the massive letter A not the smaller text that reads w-b. Confused me there without watching the video.

    Hippo Hero - On the map Foundry (forge map) there’s a small junk pile on the map with skid marks nearby. Zoom in on the junk on the left-hand side when standing on the side that the skid marks are located to see a very small hippo buried in the junk. If you're having trouble finding the right pile, look for a large truck under a bridge. Nearby, about 20 paces away, is a Brute Spiker weapon by a box and a pile of junk. This is the pile you're looking for.
