Carter's Helmet - Clear a Campaign mission on Legendary without dying.

- To do this, get close to the end of a mission on legendary, dying as many times as you like. Then, save your progress. Return to the level and finish it. This will trick the game into giving you the helmet.

Emile's Helmet - Earn a Bulltrue medal in either Multiplayer or Firefight Matchmaking.

- The 'Bulltrue' medal is received for killing an opponent as he lunges for you with the standard R-Trigger attack. To get this, I would recommend trying in Multiplayer. You will really get this randomly, but an easier way is to vote for any 'Infection' game type. Hide near a corner, pull out your shotgun and wait. When an enemy comes towards you, switch off any Camo and back away quickly. This will force them to come to you, so they will use the faster attack, and probably hit the R-Trigger. You can then either side-step and Melee attack them for an instant kill, or try your luck with the shotgun. Remember that you will only have one chance in an Infection game type, so be careful to avoid any encounters that you know you will be able to win.

Jorge's Helmet - Earn a Killtacular in multiplayer Matchmaking.

- To get a 'Killtacular' medal, kill 5 enemies in 4 seconds. Yeah. Hard. I recommend trying the top floor of a Big Team Battle Spire, as you can find an Energy Sword and other strong weapons IN THE SAME PLACE. Also, it is a highly trafficked place, and if you use Active Camo, you can do it easily. Also, try Boardwalk, as you can get both the Plasma Launcher AND the Rocket Launcher within five seconds of each other.

Jun's Helmet - Kill 100 enemies in a row without dying in either the Campaign or Firefight.

- To do this in about 3 minutes, set your shields, health and damage to max and turn on 'Bottomless Clip' for your weapons (unlimited ammo AND you don't have to reload) on a custom Firefight game (Note: Get rid of Generators!) and set the difficulty to Legendary.

Kat's Helmet - Avenge a teammate's death in Multiplayer Matchmaking.

- EASY. Basically, look for encounters with two or more fighting opponents on a normal Team Slayer match. Wait, and if your teammate dies, finish off the weakened opponent.

Other Achievements


A Storage Solution: Using the File Browser, upload a file to your File Share.

- Go to Theater mode, then Temporary Files, and upload any file to File Share.

Cool File, Bro: Recommend a file to someone.

- After doing the previous achievement, go to your File Share and select 'Recommend' (Note: may be worded differently.)

A New Challenger: Complete all of the Daily Challenges in a given day.

- Can't really help, but my advice is to try to do this on days when you have a lot of free time. For 'killing x numbers of enemy in any game mode', use the custom Firefight Settings above. Also, go for the hardest challenges first. You may do other easier ones while you do them.

Oh but this is quite the contrary. And by whom do you mean guys?

How is it the contrary? Understand the meaning of words before using them online, asshole. And by guys I mean the several other members who built this site (around 10 last time I checked, not the two you quote).

Personally, I think this abortion of a site is the most tragic thing to ever happen to the internet. These reviews are awful and I'm sure that both of your members feel the same.

Ignore the troll, guys

With the current weekly challenge you can get 'A New Challenger' and '1 Down, 51 to go' at the same time, since the weekly is to complete all dailys.
