    Edit: 14th September 2019 - an update has been released to fix the problem with the achievement not unlocking when it should. Thanks to snickerdoodle for letting us know.

    This achievement is Buggy -. Some people have managed to get it to unlock by getting all 3 wins in the same session. Vash 1he Stmpde recommends that if this doesn't unlock for you that you complete one match on each map from the Warzone Firefight playlist.

    AceMcCloud posted this useful information in the comments:
    *** Spoiler - click to reveal ***
    From the main menu select Multiplayer -> Warzone and press cn_A to Open.

    Select Warzone from the Playlist and press cn_A to Select.

    You need to win a match that you have been in since the very start on each of these three original maps:
    - Escape from A.R.C.
    - March on Stormbreak
    - Raid on Apex 7

    Warzone is for 18 - 24 players, with a Fireteam limit of 12. The winner is the first team to 1000 points, or to destroy the enemies Power Core. Each game can last half an hour, so this is going to take a while. If playing by yourself you will just have to hope you are on a good team and that you get the map you need.

    There are 3 bases (East Armory, West Armory and a central base whose name changes on each map) to capture and control, and you will earn points for each one that is held. Only when you control all 3 bases can you attack the Power Core at the enemies home base. You gain points for killing members of the enemy team and for killing AI enemies. However the biggest rewards (150 points) are for your team landing the killing blow on a Legendary Boss (indicated by a yellow marker), so this is your top priority. You can snatch a game back from the brink of defeat by killing one of these bosses, or lose a match just as quickly.

    You will get another achievement at the same time, or beforehand:

    WoRlD ANiMaTeD Just to say I just unlocked this by checking my service record on halo waypoint on my phone when not even on my box Was going through again checking if the site recorded accurate stats on each warzone map when it popped. Note I have already completed the requirements and also have the Xbox app on my phone

    CED RadBAD BOY I guess you don't need to start the game to unlock the achievement if you've already met the conditions. I've just logged in on https://www.halowaypoint.com/ and viewed my profile. Seconds later i got a Windows 10 notification about the unlocked achievement.
