How to unlock the Invaders Repelled achievement

    The achievement description is a bit deceiving. It should read, "while standing within your controlled hill, defend by killing 5 opponents before they enter your hill, in one game. Kills in contested hills do not count." Or something similar...

    This can be done in a custom game with a friend over Xbox Live or with a second controller with the following settings:

    Go to Multiplayer. Select the following:

    1. Custom Games
    2. Halo 2 Custom Game3
    3. Halo 2: Anniversary Custom Game
    4. Choose Map: Warlord (small map)
    5. Choose Gametype: King of the Hill, then
    6. King (capture point does not move)
    7. Options
    a. General Settings:
    (1) Respawn Settings:
    (I) Respawn time = Instant (to speed up respawn)
    b. Time Limit = 18 minutes
    c. Score to Win = 5000 (or less, depending on how many people are working on this achievement)

    Accept the options and start the game. The ring will be located in the middle of the map on the second level of the tower by the ability spawn.

    The player going for the achievement then goes and sits in the ring so that he/she is controlling it. The second player then runs to the ledge looking into the ring BUT DOES NOT ENTER IT! The kills most be against players while it is controlled. Entering the ring changes it to contested, and the kill will not register.

    Note: This only worked when there was a time limit and a score limit. Also, THIS MUST BE DONE IN ONE GAME! I confirmed this solution using my secondary account (see Hockyeddie on Xbox Live).

    Please add comments if you find a better map or better King of the Hill sub-type, and I will edit my solution.

    ManuFlopsJust wanted to comment and say that this method did unlock for me with a guest account. Be sure that you're reading the solution correctly, having the player you are unlocking the achievement for scoring inside the hill and killing opponents from within the hill and that those opponents are outside the hill. I just made the player I was unlocking it for stand at the edge of the hill and kept walking the guest account to the hill, just outside where the player I was unlocking for could easily kill them. The achievement popped on the fifth kill, didn't need to wait til the end of the match or anything like that.

    SanjifranDid it today with two controllers and a guest account. Went with 60 minutes and 5000 points, but I didn't have to complete the game. It didn't track but unlocked after the fifth kill, confirmed the enemy has to be outside the hill so you get the Hill Defense medals.
