    EDIT: I've revised the Gametype to offer points quicker and more efficiently. New link below.

    Download this gametype to your fileshare to get these achievements with ease: http://www.bungie.net/Stats/Reach/FileDetails.aspx?fid=21550...

    If you are unable to download the Gametype from Bungie.net. Then from the Main Menu of Halo: Reach, Press Start, Select "File Browser", Select "New Custom Search", Select "Search File Share" and type in my Gamertag: rabidkitty4 and download the Gametype Titled "Firefight Achievements".

    The gametype variant lets you have infinite ammo without reloading, infinite health, infinite jet pack, the max point multiplier with Legendary difficulty, and all the skulls turned on. You want to stick with the Rocket Launcher as it is given to you in the loadout screen. This will take you about 1 1/2 hours to do this on your own with ease. To get this done faster, get about 2-3 friends to join you.

    Thanks to Sidedish120 over at x360a for the description.

    Not trying to take credit or anything just improvement.

    Use Rabidkitty4's guide go ahead and download his gametype

    EDIT: if you want I have uploaded the game type on my name, it is called "Hard Chevo" so just download if you want.


    make this one change well technically three.
    1.Change all Enemies to Elite Generals
    2.Play on Corvette
    3.Turn off Dropship spawns make sure they are disabled.

    Change all waves to Elite Generals everything on every wave even on the bonus change to Elite Generals. Make sure bonus wave time is at 2 minute. Now just fly around and use your rocketlauncher and in less than 30 minutes (got mine in about 19, you can check my service record) you will have this cheevo, I may have gotten lucky (doubutful though) but on my first bonus round i got about 550,000points maybe a little more.

    And you know the more people the faster so...good luck.

    witter56You say we have to make some changes, but the changes are already made by you when you made this gametype... Confusing.

    If you go to download "most downloaded" game types, you should find a few called "1 000 000 in 10 minutes" or similar. Download one and play the "Corvette" map on Legendary difficulty.

    Got it in under 10 minutes... plus the bonus rounds are incredibly good fun! Infinite rocket ammo while invincible!

    You can also swap your second weapon for the Fuel Rod Cannon (off a dead grunt) for faster shots (Thanks to JediJohnny7)

    SadBlokeI like your solution...easy and simple.

    Scoochi2Took me just under 20 mins... because on the first bonus round I was using my jetpack for too long and I died as I was 'not in the map'.

    I also found that the plasma rifle took on average 2-3 shots to kill each elite. With it's higher firing rate this got me faster points than the rocket launcher or the fuel rod.

    Buff BeefbrothWow, this is by far the best solution for this Achievement. I tried the highest rated one and would just get super bored around 200k points. I ended up giving up on it for a while.

    Then I saw this and downloaded the recommended gametype. It is SO much quicker, and absolutely hilarious to play. So many elites it's like playing a Serious Sam game. I was kind of sad when the achievement popped so quickly. :P
