    Since the TU2, each playlist has it's own ranking system which contributes to an overall ranking system - which older gamers may remember it being one global EXP system.

    However to gain this you must have 7 EXP in any one of the playlists on the 7th of a month - all you need to do is make sure you load the playlist so that you are in the lobby - you don't even have to play the match.

    Admittedly yes, for 0G this does seem a little pointless but apparently there is a rumour that there is a prize rewarded to those who have all of the Vidmaster achievements!

    qManballinBoosted it by myself using an Xbox 360 and an Xbox One and went on one of the social playlists that weren't being used for other achievements. Got 7 exp and never touched it until the next "7th" comes around.

    Not sure when Halo 3 times are set or if it's dependent on console settings, but I turned on the game, clicked the matchmaking button and *bleep* *bloop* almost immediately. This was around 4:50 AM CST. Cheers

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

    Have 7 Exp in a particular Playlist (Team SWAT, Lone Wolves, etc) then enter the Matchmaking Lobby when YOUR Xbox shows that it is the 7th of any month.

    Exp, IS NOT the little number next to your Rank Insignia, that appears on your coloured GamerTag strip in the Lobby, that is your Skill Level.

    Exp IS the small number (next to Exp) that you can only see if you "Green Button" the above coloured GamerTag strip while in a Matchmaking Lobby.

    Method 1 (on the 7th of any month)
    You do not have to even play a single game (if your Exp is already 7) to unlock the Achievement. Simply enter the Matchmaking Lobby screen, select the Playlist (eg Team SWAT) that you have 7 Exp in and pop "there she blows".

    Method 2 (on the 7th of any month)
    Get to about Exp 6 in a Playlist, then play that Playlist until your Exp raises to 7, the Achievement will unlock in between Games.


    I wish someone had spelt all that out for me,
    so I posted the above for those who are/were just as confused as I was.

    Best of luck out there guys...

    Bungie has a "7 on the 7th" playlist available on the 7th of the month. All matches are 7 players, and the top 3 spots each earn 1 EXP. Therefore, you can get this achievement simply by finishing in the top 3 seven times.

    You can boost this by getting a group of 7 people together and playing, rotating wins until everyone has 7.

    You can also plug in extra controllers to fill the slots, but that may result in Bungie becoming Very Angry with you if those other controllers just sit there for the whole match. Don't recommend doing that.

    Lefty24By far the easiest method. I did this in 7 matches since finishing 3rd isnt too difficult. I even had a few matches start with only 5 players. Took me a little more than an hour in the 7 on 7 playlist starting from 0.

    CYBORG TANKv18what if i'm just seeing this achievement and my rank is 8, there's no way I can reset my rank or anything?

    SashamorningI don't think so, but it's been a long time since I've played.
