    You will receive 1 EXP for being either:

    1) On the winning side of a team match
    2) In the top half of the standings for a free-for-all match

    Otherwise, just finish ten matches, remember that quitting a match early will deduct EXP from your total, so if you're unevenly matched in a particular battle, stick through it.

    z0vanthis isn’t unobtainable, there’s communities on discord and such which can help you boost your EXP for the achievement

    JinjjaThis is a glitched achievement. I have every achievement except this one. I’ve met the requirements On all of the playlists. I ended up submitting requests including screenshots to Microsoft. Their response was they can not help, they do “not have a workaround” and only look at requests which have numerous help requests on.

    It seems like a lot of people are having a problem obtaining this achievement. I done a bit of scouting online and found some useful info.

    You have to get 5xp from one playlist!

    I personally achieved this by gaining 5xp on Squad Battle. Your have to be on the winning side 5 times and you should your achievement!!

    MuzzinsI was struggling with getting this one to pop also so I just started playing social slayer until I was on the winning side 5 times and it eventually popped even though I had played more than 10 games total, and had more than 5 EXP. I also already had the graduate pin (saying I had graduated basic training) - some posts online suggest this is when you should get the achievement but I don't think it is.

    I would recommend anyone going for this just picks one playlist and stays with it.

    Keep in mind that quitting early will deduct experience. Simply complete 10 matches or try to get the experience. You get experience from winning games. You can play either team based games or solo based games. Since you are probably new to the halo community if you have no experience, team games will probably be easier since your team may carry you to victory.
