    If you want (or need) to do this without the aid of party members you should try to lure someone into hijacking you. First, make sure you have a energy drainer to kill your vehicle's engine. Next, it would be best to use a ghost (more people try to hijack that than a warthog) and hide in a spot that is relatively small so the enemy can't just run away after taking your vehicle. (I waited in the dome on High Ground). When the enemy jumps on your vehicle immediately press X and drop the energy drainer to kill the engines. Walk back up to your vehicle and hijack it for the achievement.

    Lazy with StyleIt's slightly glitched. A friend and I did it on Sandbox in Rumble Pit playlist. My friend got it first so he went into the Chopper, I hijacked it and he hijacked it back gaining the achievement a few seconds later. When it was my turn in another match on the same map, I did the same as him before just in time and achievement unlocked as soon as I pressed the button for second hijacking (even before my character did the action).

    The easiest maps to do this on are High Ground and Snowbound. They both have vehicles and are small maps. I have done this achievement twice on both and found it pretty simple.

    As soon as the match begins, try to avoid other players and find a Ghost. It doesn't have to be a Ghost but they are easier to get away in if your being shot at. Also, most players will rarely try to hijack a Mongoose or Warthog so the Ghost is the best to try.

    Now, the trick is to find another player and drive the Ghost right next to them. Don't splatter or shoot them just stop the Ghost as soon as you reach them. The player should hijack you. If they don't, drive away and then go back.

    Once they do, drive the Ghost full speed into a nearby wall, tree or whatever before they kick you off. If done correctly, by the time they turn the Ghost around, you can successfully hijack them and unlock the achievement. Sometimes players will speed away in the Ghost once they have control so try to crash it just before you're kicked off and you should have no problem.

    Some of the best places to try are small areas like inside the underground passage on Snowbound or inside the base on High Ground. The other player won't be able to escape quickly if there are too many nearby objects.

    Here is a video showing how I got the achievement:

    If doing this solo it's a lot more bothersome than it should be. The best way is Social Rumble Pit on Snowbound. Social is better than Ranked Lone Wolves because I kept getting the mongoose instead of the ghost on this level. Grab the ghost and go to the opposite side of the map where the overhang is, near the three tunnels that meet underground. There should be a impassible shield on one side and a column on the other. If you position yourself between the two, you should have enough time to get boarded and get your ghost back. Really easy and a lot less painful than seeing someone speed away on your ghost.

    This achievement can be done in any free for all playlist. This means that unlike most other multiplayer ahievements, this can be done in a social playlist. Ask a sibling or a friend to join you as a guest and start rumble pit. If you get a map like snowbound, get in a mongoose. The guest will then board it and you will just board it back quickly. Then you can enjoy your game.

    Works better when you and your guest is in a place far from other players as they might ruin the achievement.

    It's very easy to do this achievement with a Ghost. Let the enemy player hijack your Ghost. Then, while he's regaining control of the vehicle, move up to it and press RB.

    The enemy player will usually try to run you over with the Ghost so move to the side to avoid and press RB.

    The worst case scenario would be that the enemy player runs away with the Ghost.

    This can be done in social gametypes.

    Make a party with yourself and a few friends, and join a Social Rumble Pit game, and vote for a map with a ghost, like Snowbound.

    Met a specific location a trade the achievement.

    *Otherwise, drive around the map in a ghost with a plasma pistol equipped as your primary weapon. Get borded on purpose, and try to shoot them with the plasma pistol. If youre successful, you should have no problem getting back on it.

    Not many people play halo 3 anymore so if you dont have this achievement...this is how. If you have a friend or more , everybody must go to (Xbox Home) system settings , Console settings , Language and locale, hit locale.

    Warning after hitting KOREA you will be disconnected from Xbox live. The Korean language doesn't matter you can change it if you want to be safe about it.Then load up Halo 3 and your friend will do the same.

    Then hit matchmaking, ranked match, Lone wolves. And I guarantee you and your friend will be in the same match, now its just a matter of finding right map (One that Has Vehicles) and just let your friend hijack you from your ghost because with the mongose you 'll just hop on back something. And then IMMEDIATELY (as fast as you can) under 10 seconds hijack him back and theirs your WHOPPING 5G.

    If you need a friend to do this with massage me on Xbox :)
