    If you're planning on boosting the Mythic Achievements this one is really quite simple. After having trouble using grenades, my friends and I experimented and found a much better option. Pick up the rockets at the top of the map and have 2 players on the other team stand together in the long hallway over the chasm. Make sure they're fairly far away but close enough where you can kill them. Shoot a rocket and have someone from the other team assassinate you right after. As long as you hit one of them, both will die and you should get both medals with one rocket.

    thanatos8285Can confirm everything in this solution. The only tricky part is getting an Orbital map. Stick with the Team Mythic playlist since the pool of maps is much smaller than Rumble Pit. Still takes a while to find one though. My group only got Orbital twice in a 3.5 hour session with all but 2 games being played on Team Mythic. I don't think the number of players makes a difference but I could be wrong.

    If your group is already done with all of the EXP-related achievements, you can consider leaving any games when you don't get Orbital if that's the only achievement you're working toward. You'll get an EXP penalty but if you're at a point where EXP isn't relevant for your remaining achievements... meh. This does break your group up so you'll want to either all be in a 360 party or have everyone friended so that people can be quickly invited back to the lobby if you go this route.

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

    LeiChatTop tip.... use the LONG corridor as the rocket needs enough flight time for the "from the grave" to credit.

    Me and my friend tried all of the methods mentioned above, then we got the advice to just throw a plasma grenade straight up in the air. We used 6 extra controllers to be sure that we got at least 2 kills.

    So get the other team to stand around you, throw a couple of grenades straight up in the air, have your friend kill you from behind. The higher the ceiling the more time you got. We both got it on our first try and people we have helped after that have also gotten it on the first try.

    The best way to get this one is to use grenades, that's the method I used and I got it the first time I played this map. Since this level has a lot of places where the grenades will abruptly halt their bouncing on the floor, it works great. If you're great at sticking then try for that, but if not just weaken someone and let them attack you and before you die just let one of your 'nades drop towards the enemy, achieve this twice and you'll be 25G richer.

    I got Multi Flag when I got this map so I had plenty of time. Haha and everyone quit except for one guy, good times.
