Halo: The Master Chief Collection Achievements


Airborne

Halo CE: Launch a Warthog for at least 5 seconds and have it splatter an enemy.   

This achievement is obtained in a Halo: Combat Evolved Custom Game with a bare minimum of three players. While this can technically be done on your own with two extra controllers, it will prove to be too difficult as opposed to teaming up with two other players who have microphones and can communicate via an Xbox Live party chat.

With that said, go ahead an host a Custom Games lobby and invite the two other players. The person going for this achievement should try to be host, though that is not entirely necessary. Before launching the game, you're going to need to tweak the options a little bit. First off, select the map called "Death Island" and change the game type to Team Slayer. Player "A" (host) will be going for the achievement and should be on a team with Player "B." Player "C" will need to be on their own team. Now under options, go ahead and turn friendly fire off, change the primary weapon to a Rocket Launcher, turn off Banshees for both teams, set the time limit to "none," and set grenades to "infinite." Once all these options are in place, go ahead an launch the game.

When the match begins, Player "A" will need to grab one of the many Warthogs around the island and drive up to the top of the map. Player "A" needs to line up their Warthog with the tip of Red Base's Ghost spawn and then drive back in order to put some distance between the Warthog and the Ghost. Driving back to the rock/trees is far enough. At this point, Player "B" should stand off to the side of the Ghost with Plasma Grenades equipped while Player "C" stands at the beach in front of Red Base. It's worth noting that Player "A" will be the driver (person getting the achievement), Player "B" will be the "launcher," and Player "C" is going to be the player that gets splattered.

Once everyone is in position, Player "A" needs to accelerate the Warthog forward and steer straight into the Ghost because it will act as a mini-ramp for the Warthog. When the Warthog is a few feet from the Ghost, Player "B" needs to throw one Plasma Grenade at the front of the Ghost. Player "A" will drive over the grenade and over the Ghost, which is when Player "B" will shoot a single rocket at the ground behind the Warthog. If timed correctly, though timing does not need to be that exact, the Plasma Grenade will go off as soon as the rocket explodes, thus "launching" (as the achievement's description requires) the Warthog high into the air off of Red Base. This double explosion will more than likely always grant five to six seconds of airtime.

Player "C" now has to essentially "catch" the Warthog by moving around and positioning themselves underneath the vehicle as it descends. It's important to note that Player "C" cannot jump into the Warthog. Rather, the Warthog needs to crush Player "C" while still in the air. Essentially, the Warthog cannot touch the ground before it kills Player "C." If done correctly, Player "A" will receive a Splatter medal and the achievement should unlock with issue.

For a visual aid in completing this achievement, you can use the video guide below courtesy of LifeExpectancy. His video guide is a little different than the solution offered above, however you will notice that this guide's solution avoids the issues of having Banshees spawn on top of Red Base and thus reducing the acceleration of the Warthog, avoids the probability of Player "B" killing Player "A" since friendly fire is turned off, and guarantees a bigger launch with more airtime due to the dual explosion from the Plasma Grenade and Rocket Launcher blast.
