    Despite the achievement's description say that you must get this on a Legendary map, you can actually get this on Mythic maps as well. I got these achievement the other day while playing an Oddball match on Heretic (which is the new version of Midship from Halo 2).

    Once you have the ball, melee and kill 3 other players to get this achievement.

    J The AltruistSince Halo 3 and the others are being shut down next year, I figured nows a good time to find boosting partners.

    If you don't feel like waiting for the 7 on 7 or the double exp weekend events, go play Rumble Pit, Multi Team, or Social Skirmish. I recommend playing Rumble Pit because you can just leave if you do not get odd ball and you do NOT get a penalty.

    When you do get odd ball, keep trying to get it, and if it is possible, try and knock it off the map when everyone is fighting for it and grab it when it is placed back in the middle. This makes it much easier to stay alive and try and funnel everyone towards you. It really should not take too many attempts if this happens. I got 2 melee kills after someone threw it over, and my 3rd and last kill came from me throwing constant grenades at it till i saw my chance to grab it.

    The below link shows a list of all the matchmaking choices and the game types played in each.

    This can be gotten on Legendary, Mythic 1, or Mythic 2 maps. In most Social Playlists and Lone Wolves I believe, the oddball is set to Instant Kill. It is easiest in the Double Exp Playlist 3-ball. When you have the ball, there will be an tag on you, so have your allies back you up. Easy on maps with cutoff points that they will funnel through.
