Halo 2: Shoot the soccer ball in the level Metropolis.   

This Easter Egg can be found in the mission, Metropolis.

The soccer ball in the aforementioned mission is hidden high above the rooftops of the skyscrapers in the city-street area after emerging from the highway tunnel and battling the Covenant within a grassy valley. There are about six distinct ways in getting to the soccer ball’s location, though the two methods detailed below are the best ways in finding the hidden ball.

The first method involves retrieving a Banshee (details can be found below in the next achievement). After picking up the Scarab Gun with the Banshee, head along the highway. Once you pass the amphitheater, you’ll spot a ruined building with a massive hole in its side. At the bottom of this blown out hole, you will see the giant Soccer Ball tucked away in a dark corner.

The second method doesn’t involve a Banshee, though the Sputnik skull must be activated. After the firefight in the large grass valley, you will exit into the city streets. On the other side of the street, there is a large building with a piece of broken glass sticking out of a large crack. Stand on the support edge of this building and perform a grenade jump into the large crack. From here, you will need to carefully navigate up the building by jumping on the broken support beams. Once you get to the last support beam, walk onto the roof of the building and into the large dark room on your left. Here, you will find the soccer ball. Once you’ve found the hidden ball, simply shoot it with whatever weapon you currently have equipped and the achievement will unlock.

Make sure to refer below to "Scarab Lord" where you will find a video guide detailing the methods involved in reaching the hidden soccer ball.

This achievement can be done along with the Scarab gun achievement. On the way to the gun, fly the banshee into a hole in the building and there's a huge soccer ball (just like the ones from Forge).

Here's another Vid.
Not doing the grenade jump thing.
Instead it worked for me with crouch jumping.
Hope that helps :)

I did this without having to use the banshee or grenade jump.

Have the Scarab Skull on (*You'll need the explosion*)

Whenever you get into the city and you have to fight the wraiths, kill off the wraiths and enemies, turn around from the wraiths position and head to the very left corner between where you first entered the city, and where the wraiths were.

You'll be standing near the trees.

Look up to the right to where the ball would be sitting in the big hole in the building. Fire off your weapon into the hole until you get the achievement.

You don't need any skulls or banshees. Simply hijack a wraith, take it over beneath the trees and fire at the corner of the ruined building just above the railing. Got it this way first time
