To obtain this achievement you simply must kill someone who has a spree of 5+ kills IN CLASSIC matchmaking (Doesn't work in custom matches).

This is obtained by killing someone that is on a killing spree or greater, (5+ kills without a death in between). This will give you the medal Killjoy and unlock the achievement. It doesn't announce sprees so the best way to guess someone is on it is if they seem to be running around for a while without dying.

A few enemies you should target are people running around with swords, shotguns, try to kill them immediately, if they weren't on a spree at least you got a kill. Someone sitting the the back of the map or camping with a sniper can easily have a spree.

If you do know of them try to keep going at them even if you die, respawn and try again. Throw all your grenades every time to flush them out, or if you get a rocket, sword, shotgun, or sniper you can use that to kill them too.

If you plan on play this for a while don't go out of your way for this one it will come naturally. If you plan on getting the other online achievements you should go for this last because most likely you will get this on the way.

I got this in my 3rd RANKED Halo 2A team match.

Good luck and have fun!

mcnichoj Maybe add a note saying you can't get it in a custom match.

Not sure why I haven't unlocked it yet. I wasn't playing when servers were screwed up and got every other achievement just fine. Have several Killjoy medals and have only been on the H2A playlist.

hunterIV I am in a playlist that has Halo CE, Halo 2, Halo 2 A, and Halo 3 maps. Achievement didn't unlock.

Strategy One Uh Halo 2 Anniversary maps?

iG N1ghtm4r3 If i'm not mistaking, it has to be done in the team halo 2: anniversary playlist.

Strategy One Yes I believe so

hunterIV Interesting. The 5 melee kills from behind can be done in any playlist as long as it is on an H2A map.

NitrousSpeed This achievement is glitched for me as I got a killjoy in 3 different games of Halo 2 Anniversary matchmaking and it won't unlock

TachikomaShiki I also got a Killjoy in multiple Halo 2 Anniversary maps in matchmaking and the achievement didn't unlock but then I managed to unlock it last night while playing on an original Halo 2 map: Lockout in the Team Slayer playlist and I got a Killjoy. Give that a go if it's not working on the new Anniversary Halo 2 maps.

NitrousSpeed Just tried in Halo 2 maps and got a Killing spree killjoy and it still won't unlock. So this is glitched for me

Strategy One What does it say in your Achievements app, does it say complete and says that its unlocking?
Posted by Strategy One on 16 Nov 14 at 21:37
NitrousSpeed It doesn't say anything and I know the person was on a killing spree cause I was playing against my friend in an online public game both in the Team 2 Halo Anniversary playlist and Halo 2 classic cause we ended up on opposite teams and I let him kill me 5 times then I killed him and it didn't pop.

Strategy One It must be a buggy achievement. you tried the same thing in Anniversary? with your friend?
Posted by Strategy One on 17 Nov 14 at 00:24
NitrousSpeed Yep I did and ended up on opposite teams and it didn't unlock there. H2A I was on Shrine, Stonetown and Zenith then tried on a H2 map and got the Killing Spree killjoy everytime but it never unlocked and it still hasn't.

TachikomaShiki Sorry to hear it's not working for you. Maybe it has something to do with the number of kills the player has who is on a killing spree? I'm not sure what the player was on who I got it to unlock on as I wasn't expecting it to pop up on an old map. Can't think of what else it could be but yeah sounds like this is something else they need to fix.

NitrousSpeed I hate the online ones and this is my last one to get that requires public matches. Wish someone here could try and help me get it cause its bound to unlock eventually. There's no counter for it either just shows locked when I compare with someone

G ii F T 3 D xI i can confirm that if it does not pop in the Halo 2 Anniversary, it will in Halo 2 Classic. (Thanks Tachikoma Shell)

Shadow XBL waiting for further confirmation. I've gotten two killjoys in H2A and nothing.
Posted by Shadow XBL on 17 Nov 14 at 19:06
NitrousSpeed I just got a killjoy in Halo 2 Classic and it didn't unlock.
Posted by NitrousSpeed on 18 Nov 14 at 18:23
Contra666 I too have gotten a killjoy medal in both Halo 2 Anniversary and Halo 2 Classic and it didn't work in either.

Maka91 Got a killjoy in H2A & H2C, no achievement.
Posted by Maka91 on 20 Nov 14 at 20:25
Strategy One Maybe it will eventually unlock its definitely buggy though.

Shadow XBL Just popped today. I think the update fixed it.

Strategy One Thats good man!

NitrousSpeed Finally got this achievement. Man I hate the mulitiplayer in this game. Still need Legend Slayer and MVP and the 10 Elite one to be done with the public matches and focus on single player
Posted by NitrousSpeed on 23 Nov 14 at 02:30
Strategy One Nice speed, which I was in the same boat, not looking forward to MP achievements.
Posted by Strategy One on 23 Nov 14 at 04:04
NitrousSpeed Yep now I need Legend Slayer & the 10 Elite one to be done with public matches

Strategy One May have been because of the update today?
