Halo 4 Bullseye Map Pack Achievements

Viewable on the Halo Waypoint Xbox app, these are the new achievements for Halo 4. They come next month as part of the Bullseye Map Pack which can be bought on its own for 480 Microsoft Points or as part of the Champions Bundle for 800 Points.

Some of them sound fun, all the ricochet ones seem fair enough, just so long as it sticks around in matchmaking long enough to get them. Take a look:

Protect this House (30G) 
In matchmaking, assassinate the ball carrier within five meters of your own goal in Ricochet.

Hat Trick (33G) 
In matchmaking, score three times in one round of Ricochet.

From Downtown (25G)
In matchmaking, score by throwing the ball from 30 meters in Ricochet.

Repeat Survivor (25G) 
In matchmaking, survive three vehicle explosions in a row with the Survivor package.

Can't Catch Me (20G)
In matchmaking, score a goal in Ricochet while taking damage with the Resistor active.

Just a Scratch (20G)
In matchmaking, recover full shields from low health with both Resistor and Recharge active.

Pitchin' a Tent (40G)
In matchmaking, effectively camp one location without dying for a full 60 seconds.

One Man Army (27G) 
In matchmaking, get 4 consecutive kills with the Rocket Launcher without dying.

Shocking (10G)
In Bullseye DLC Matchmaking, activate both electrical surge systems during a match on Vertigo.

Got It! (20G) 
In Bullseye DLC Matchmaking, acquire the Rocket Launcher at the start of a match on Pitfall.


I've spoken in the past about how achievements shouldn't encourage negative player behaviour, it seems 343i have listened to those words and decided to play their troll card. Pitchin' a Tent rewards a player with a substantial forty gamerscore for sitting in one area without being killed for a whole minute. And they didn't even call it "It's a legitimate strategy"!?

Great.

  2. With all do respect Cowboy, I hate campers as much as you. However it's also aggravating if you have noob's that just respawn, rush, die.. repeat. If it encourage's the noobs to atleast take a little bit of cover more often so that it give's team members a chance to cross the map safely and have a reasonable chance of helping you out.

    1. I'm all for tactical team play and mechanisms to encourage that. However, I don't think this achievement will do that, I think it will encourage people to find a quiet corner of a map to go and crouch in, probably with camo equipped, while their team battles on a man down.
