    Do not need to taunt vehicles for the achievement, just pressing y 50 times is enough.

    Play a skirmish match on easy put unit powers cool down to 200% build the captain and learn taunt from the war council. It then takes 25 seconds for the ability to recharge. Bit boring but easier than finding vehicles.

    melbufraumaIdk if its just my game that is glitched but my tracker would only go up if I had used it on a vehicle. That was before it got stuck at 76% and now doesn't go up at all.

    Same Old CJI can confirm that this worked for me. I play skirmish games against normal AI and every time I use the ability it counts. Be sure to set ability cooldown to 200%!

    You'll easily get this over time if you use Colony at all in Skirmish/multiplayer/Blitz and press cn_Y whenever you have the Colony Leader selected, but if you want to speed things up:

    Here's I believe the fastest method to get all 3 of the Colony DLC achievements with minimum effort. I played around with different settings and modes for a while and decided this worked the best to get all 3 at once:

    Set up a private skirmish game with these settings:
    Game type: Strongholds
    Map: Your preference, large
    Fog of War: Off
    Unit power recharge times: 200%
    Enemy AI: Easy--any leader
    Pick Colony as your leader shock

    1. As soon as the match starts, select your War Council and build your Colony Leader.
    2. Then zoom around the map with the fast zoom and quickly build ALL the Strongholds around the map so the AI can't.
    3. Set a global rally point near the Stronghold closest to the AI base.
    4. Start selecting Colony and pressing cn_Y every 30 seconds or faster to get 1 out of the 50 taunts each time.(Do note, Colony moves to where you press cn_Y first, so make sure to activate it right on top of him so he doesn't move anywhere and waste time!)
    5. Select your main base and spam build 31 Skitterers.
    6. Select the Stronghold closest to the rally point and spam build 29 Grunt Squads.
    7. You should be able to start selecting your whole population now with cn_RBcn_RB, press cn_RT until you have the Skitterers highlighted, then press cn_Y on Grunt Squad's with open hexagon's on them to attach them. Once the Skitterer 'attaches', it'll take care of itself and remove itself from the global skitterer population so you can keep selecting all units and repeat this. (You can also attach some to Colony)
    8. Keep activating Colony's leader power and attaching Skitterers until your population is maxed and they are all built and attached.
    9. Move in and wipe out the enemy base!

    Repeat this three times to get all 3 Wins.

    You should finish the Skitterer achievement on the second match easily.
    Halo Wars 2Turrets everywhereThe Turrets everywhere achievement in Halo Wars 2 worth 22 pointsAttach 50 skitterers to units (Multiplayer, Skirmish or Blitz)

    You should get the Taunt achievement probably in the third match, you may have to wait around waiting for Colony to recharge in the third match if you went fast enough with everything else. Note: Colony's Taunt ability makes NO difference on vehicles, all that counts is activating the Taunt with or without any vehicles present.

    And that's how easy this DLC is! Enjoy!

    You must first build a War Council. You can then make the leader Hunter Captain but you must also upgrade him by purchasing the Taunt ability. What it does is makes a circle radius around him which makes everyone in the circle target him. This achievement is misleading because you must use taunt 50 times on vehicles so doing it in a group doesn't increase the rate you get this achievement.

    MajinFrojust wanted to mention that it seems this is 50 individual taunts and not 50 vehicles. so doesn't matter how many you get in the circle as long as 1 is..

    RickyJesseAlso just like Kinsano the game counts if you use the ability on a building. I did this solo against an AI and they stopped making vehicles so figured I would give it a shot using it on a building and sure enough the achievement tracker counted it. This can make the achievement go much quicker.
