Grab these rare date-specific Xbox achievements on Halloween

By Sean Carey,
Halloween is almost here, but forget about all the spooky festivities, there are important achievements that require your attention! On October 31st, several date-specific achievements will be available to unlock from a number of different games.

Halo: The Master Chief Collection ~ Trailer

First, we are jumping into Halo: The Master Chief Collection for the Elder Signs achievement. To unlock this one, you'll need to find and view two different sigils on two separate days of the year on the Valhalla map in Halo 3. October 31st's sigil, which is a gravestone with "R.I.P." initials, can be found on the far wall located behind the turret. The sigil can be viewed in Forge, custom games, and normal matchmaking. The next day you'll be able to view one of these special sigils will be on November 11th, which is Veteran's Day in the US.

Sticking with Halo: MCC, next, we'll be going for the Destination Vacation achievement. To unlock this one, you'll need to view just one of the seasonal signs on Halo 2's Zanzibar map. If you load up a custom game and head over to the beach, you should see a sign next to the water. The sign on October 31st will read: "Danger, Carnage Zone." Once you've viewed that, the achievement should pop. The next date you'll be able to view one of these signs will be on December 25th.

You'll then want to fire up Batman: Arkham City for the Storyteller achievement, which requires you to visit the lovely Calendar Man on 12 specific days of the year. You'll find him down in the basement of the Solomon Wayne Courthouse which you can access near the start of the game. If you speak to him, he'll tell you a story, and that means you can cross off one of the 12 days needed to unlock the achievement.
