Halo: The Master Chief Collection

Halo: The Master Chief Collection Achievements


Kill 250 Hunters.   

These creatures are by far the strongest forces in the Covenant. Fitted with a heavy fuel rod cannon in one arm and an impervious shield in the other, Hunters barely flinch when taking damage from your firepower. Hunters are a unique species within the Covenant in that they are actually made up of smaller worm-like organisms. When grouped together, they form the massively armor-plated nightmares players would wish to avoid in combat.

Despite their size, Hunters are very swift on their feat and will also travel with a single other pack member. When dealing with the enemies in combat, the best way to kill them is to get close. When you are in their “personal bubble,” they will charge at you. At this time, quickly step to the side and turn around to spot the exposed orange worms on their back. This is their only weakness, so either melee them or spray your weapon here!

Keep in mind that while Hunters are one of the least-common enemies found within the game, but they do indeed appear in each of the four Campaigns. As a note, Halo: CE's "Truth and Reconciliation" has six Hunters, "Silent Cartographer" has four Hunters, and Assault on the Control Room has six Hunters. These missions are probably the best place to grind out kills by manipulating checkpoints saves since most checkpoints are given to players before battling Hunters. In fact, on Silent Cartographer, players should always receive a checkpoint before reaching the Hunter pair on the path to the security control room. Using the equipped Magnum, you can quickly kill both Hunters, and then restart your checkpoint to grind out the kills. Once you have killed a total of 250 Hunters, this achievement will unlock.

The Ark or the Maw are the some of the best levels for this, 6 hunters on each

Silent Cartographer has 6 Hunters as well. Doesn't make it any easier.

Spartan Ops is the easiest way, episode 3.4 shootout on Valhalla has about 16 hunters in the mission
