Halo: The Master Chief Collection

Halo: The Master Chief Collection Achievements

The True King

Earn a total of 250 KOTH Mode Specific medals in matchmade games.  

In total, there are thirteen King of the Hill Mode Specific medals that can be earned in Halo: The Master Chief Collection. You can take a look below to see what medals count towards this achievement.

  • Hill Defense - Kill an enemy while holding a hill (ALL GAMES)
  • Hill Offense - Kill an enemy holding a hill (ALL GAMES)
  • Hail To The King - Kill 5 consecutive opponents in a single life from inside the hill before it moves (ALL GAMES)
  • Hill Assist - Assist killing an enemy taking or holding the hill (H4)
  • Regime Change - Overtake a controlled hill (10 seconds) and hold it for 10 seconds (H4)
  • First Point - Be the first player to earn a point from a hill (ALL GAMES)
  • Loitering - Hold and survive the hill for 5 seconds (H2A, H4)
  • Squatter - Hold and survive in the hill for 15 seconds (H2A, H4)
  • Over the Hill - Hold and survive the hill for 30 seconds (H2A, H4)
  • Vehicle Dominance - Use a vehicle to hold a hill (ALL GAMES)
  • Visiting - Hold and survive in the hill for 5 seconds using a vehicle (H2A, H4)
  • Parked - Hold and survive in the hill for 15 seconds using a vehicle (H2A, H4)
  • Drive In - Hold and survive in the hill for 30 seconds using a vehicle (H2A, H4)

With all of this in mind, the best playlist to work on this achievement is Team SWAT. This is because objective game modes like King of the Hill will appear more often than in any other Multiplayer playlist. In addition to this, Team SWAT is much easier to earn KoTH medals because since all players are stripped of their shields, kills for medals such as Hill Offense and Hill Defense will come easier than in a standard King of the Hill match.

The most difficult aspect of this achievement is to wait until King of the Hill is actually voted for in the Multiplayer map selection menu. A decent way to circumvent the negative possibility of KoTH not getting chosen is to play with a group of three to four other players. This increases the chances of KoTH being voted for since your entire party can vote for King of the Hill once it appears. Overall, this achievement only goes as fast as your skill level in the aforementioned game type. Once you achieve 250 KoTH Mode Specific medals, this achievement will unlock.

Best place is Halo 4 and hope u get to choose it because each game nets up to 20-30+ medals, which is A LOT compared to the previous Halo games since H4 adds defense/offense/assist medals.

The Team: H2 Anniversary playlist does not contain KOTH. If u want to do H2 Anniversary style then it has to be either rumble or championship series.
