Solution:

Notes:
- This achievement is obtainable in Social Games or Competitive Games matchmaking via Halo 2: Anniversary.
- Input-based matchmaking, platform-based matchmaking, and region selection does make a difference when boosting this with a friend in a 1v1 social game. If both players use the same type of input device, play on the same platform, and/or connect using only specific regions, you can increase your chances of matching up almost every time. This is a new feature added (as of 17 November 2020) to allow cross-play between Xbox One and PC players regardless of input device used. You can customize these restrictions via Options & Career -> Settings -> Networking.

If you are playing in Competitive Games matchmaking, you must use the H2A Team Hardcore playlist. Playlists are subject to change by the developer, 343 Industries.

The quickest and easiest method to unlock this achievement is in Social Games matchmaking.
