Shields Up!

Halo 2A MP: On Zenith, personally activate the center energy shield 3 times in one matchmade game.  

On this map, the central dish structure provides a temporary energy shield when activated by one of three switches located around the boarders of the map. The first of these switches is located inside Comms Tower, the second is located on Sky Bridge, and the third is located on the center ramp where the Shotgun spawns.

The energy shield will usually only last about thirty seconds, so make sure to move towards the switches around the map as soon as possible. Also keep in mind that this must be done in matchmaking and cannot be unlocked in a Custom Game. Once you’ve activated the energy shield three times, the achievement will unlock.

same here, I did it 3 times and it didn't unlock. I think theyre having an issue with some of the matchmade achievements not popping. The ones you can do in custom games work fine for me

definitely glitched. i just did it 6 times in a match (3 from each switch)and nothing. thought maybe the last time it didn't pop was because of the achievement problem on day 1.

There are 3 switches on the map #3 I think you have to activate them sepparately.

Wait, so there are three switches and you have to activate each of them?

I can confirm, activated the same switch 5 or so times with no achievement, activated 3 switches separately and it immediately popped.

Switch 1 is inside the structure with multiple levels, turn right as you enter.

Switch 2 is on the other side of the pillar right by the overshield.

Switch 3 is just to the left after you come out the other side of the teleporter.

You can use the same shield or a mixture of two to unlock the achievement.

Still glitched for me, even though I activated all 3

Do you have to actually let the time run out for the match?

My friend had problems with this achievement. He was trying to get it in a custom game, and it wouldn't unlock no matter what.

The first time we got SWAT on Zenith in matchmaking it unlocked after the third button.

Sounds like this is the only one you can't get in custom.

It says "matchmade" game, so it has to be through online compared to custom.
