          This is a guide to gaining all of the achievements in Halo 3 for 
          the XBOX 360. The achievements aren't all that difficult to achieve 
          but I'm just here explaining strategies and locating the easiest 
          way to gain them. If you have suggestions and they sound legit, I 
          will gladly use them on my guide and will give credit of course. 
          Just send me an email with the subject as the achievement, 
          "Halo 3", or "strategy", otherwise I'll think it's spam and delete 
          it. Also, let my know if I've made any mistakes on anything. Thanks 
          for looking over my guide!

         31.  Graduate (10)
                - Earn 5 EXP or finish 10 games to complete training in

         32.  UNSC Spartan (15)
                - Earn a Sergeant rating in online play

                  Most easily earned by playing ranked/social team games, 
                  killing a lot of people, winning a lot of games, and 
                  making the MVP of the team.

         33.  Spartan Officer (25)
                - Become an Officer in online play

         34.  Two For One (5)
                - Score a double kill with a single spartan laser shot
    
                  Not an easy achievement to get but it's less difficult on 
                  the smaller maps, like High Ground. Just grab the spartan 
                  laser and just hope two enemies get close enough to 
                  eachother to take them both out in one shot. Try going
                  in the bunker with a buddy to protect you in High Ground. 
                  enemies huddled together around the stairs or in the open.
                  Charge, and shoot.
 
                  In Snow Bound, since everyone likes to camp in the under-
                  ground cave in the middle, this achievement seems not so 
                  hard now. Grab the laser up top on the building, go in 
                  towards the "cave" and sneak up on them and they should 
                  most likely be there in the center of the cave with the
                  connecting tunnels charge and shoot but try to make a 
                  'fan' effect to whipe out any close together enemies.

         35.  Too Close To The Sun (5)
                - Destroy a banshee with the spartan laser or missle pod
                  in ranked free for all or in campaign.

                  The way I did this one is right in the beginning of The
                  Covenant mission. Conserve some spartan laser ammo and 
                  take out all enemies in the area. When you reach the
                  checkpoint where a pelican drops a mongoose and a warthog,
                  (right after you kill the anti-air wraith on the hill)
                  there should be some banshees flying over head. Zoom in 
                  and fire. If you miss and are out of ammo, just revert to
                  last save and start over.        
         
         36.  Triple Kill (5)
                - Kill 3 enemies within 4 seconds of eachother in a ranked
                  free for all playlist.
      
                  Easiest way to do this is on the playlist Lone Wolves.
                  Grab a shotgun, sword, rocket launcher or turret and join 
                  in an unsuspecting firefight and unload into the group.

         37.  Overkill (5)
                - Kill 4 enemies within 4 seconds of eachother in a ranked
                  free for all playlist.
              
                  (Look at Triple Kill strategy. AND DON'T DIE.)

         38.  Killing Frenzy (5)
                - Kill 10 enemies without dying in a ranked free for all 
                  playlist.

                  You can easily do this one with shotty snipers on the 
                  Valhala map. You can sit and wait at the fort but you'll
                  easily be notcied sooner or later so try going behind 
                  pelican with a buddy, have him shotgun enemies that get 
                  too close and snipe anybody that you can see. Try to 
                  ditract them with a sniper on the hill in the middle. Try
                  to keep well hidden because sooner or later they're 
                  going to head for you so move after about 4 kills or so
                  to a new location keeping your buddy with you. Just 
                  remember to keep that head down!

                  Another way to do this is to use a shotty snipers on High
                  Ground and crouch in the bunker so you'll be undetected.
                  Kill a few and move on around the edges. Keep a varity of
                  grenades handy too. If you start to get sniped at, deploy 
                  the bubble and have your buddy distract them and sneak 
                  around the side to reach the cliff in the back and pick 
                  some enemies off from there (where the oversheild is) and 
                  KEEP YOUR HEAD DOWN.

                  "For Kill Frenzy another very good way is to do lone 
                  wolves oddball or king of the hill, and never go for the 
                  win, just kill stragglers and hide, works really well 
                  since everyone is focused on the goal and not the kills."
                     Thanks to - Crutchshifter

         39.  We're In For Some Chop (5)
                - Destroy an enemy vehicle with equipment in a ranked 
                  playlist or in the campaign. 

                  Best bet is to set a trip mine. If there's an enemy 
                  trying to splatter you, set it down and bye-bye he'll go.
                  You may kill yourself though in the process but heeello 
                  achievement!

                  "Use a trip mine in campaign on the level Tsavo Highway.
                  When your in the beggining of the level there's gonna' be 
                  a few huts, (right before your first vehicle barrier) just 
                  head opposite of the barrier then turn right and check all 
                  the huts there should be trip mines in there. Following 
                  that you'll enter a place full of choppers weaken it up 
                  then drop a trip mine theres ue achevment."

         40. Lee R Wilson Memorial (5)
                - Score 5 grenade sticks in ranked free for all online.
                  (Confirmed)

                  This means that you must collect, stick and kill enemies
                  within' one match with a grenade stick (spike grenades)
                  or I've been told plasma grenades work too.

                  Use close-quarters maps like High Ground is especially 
                  good. Grab the sticks in the room near the spartan laser
                  and start stickin'!

                  "Guardian is a good level to do this on, since it is small 
                  and all the plasma grenades spawn relatively close to each 
                  other. Just grab em, and start hunting."
                     Thanks to - Crutchshifter

         41.  Steppin' Razor (5)
                - Score a Triple Kill with the energy sword in ranked free 
                  for all play.

                  The easiest map I've found to get this is on The Pit map.
                  Grab the sword in the room on the second floor all the 
                  way on the side, near the fence is with the vehicles on 
                  the other side. Grab it before anyone else since right 
                  when you start the level, there will most likely be some-
                  one else wanting the sword as well. If you're lucky, there 
                  will be others there trying to pry the sword from you. You 
                  can also make it even easier by putting a bubble in the 
                  center of the room and swipe everyone that comes through 
                  and get your achievement with just a little luck! But be 
                  careful since putting a sword in your hand also puts a big 
                  target on your head that says, "kill me!" which makes this 
                  achievement a little less difficult to get, score!

         42.  Mongoose Mowdown (5)
                - Kill an enemy with the Mongoose by running (splattering) 
                  them over in ranked free for all play.

                  Easiest map to do this in is High Ground. Remember to use 
                  a mongoose, and not the ghost. Just keep driving around 
                  until you hit someone and don't stop because that makes 
                  you an easy target. It's more enclosed and smaller than 
                  other maps making it easier for you to splatter them. 

         43.  Up Close and Personal (5)
                - Kill five enemies by melee or assassination in ranked free 
                  for all play.

                  Easily done since it's not hard to press the B button near 
                  an enemy, everyone does it. Just weaken them a bit, throw
                  some grenades, run up and melee them. Great in close-
                  quarters like High Ground, Narrows, Guardian and The Pit.

                 "A good strategy to get this achievement easily is to be on
                  the level Guardian. As quickly as you can grab the mauler 
                  NOT the shotgun. Take the mauler to the big lift room and 
                  crouch next to the center door on the upper level to stay 
                  out of sight. You will be able to see when people are com-
                  ing in on the radar and the sound of people using the lift. 
                  As soon as someone is close enough use the mauler which 
                  should deplete their shield and immediately melee them it 
                  should kill them as well as maybe launch them a few hundred 
                  feet across the level. You should be able to get this 
                  achievement within the first five minutes of the game."
                       Thanks to - UrbanNinjaX

         44.  Fear The Pink Mist (5)
                - Kill 5 enemie with the needler in a ranked for free all or
                  in campaign
 
                  This is probably one of the first achievements you'll get.
                  Just grab a needler and start shootin'! Make sure the 
                  crosshair is in red otherwise you're just waistin' ammo.

         45.  Headshot Honcho (5)
                - Kill 10 enemies with headshots in ranked free for all play 
                  or in the campaign (CONFIRMED, NOT IN A ROW). 
               
                  The easiest way to do this would be to use the sniper 
                  rifle on The Ark since you start out with the sniper rifle 
                  with 24 rounds. 
                       Thanks to - currymania 
                  Or you can go on Sierra 117, Bravo Checkpoint and grab
                  the sniper rifle at the pelican crash. 
                  
                  Best way to do this achievement is with scoring on so you 
                  know you got the headshot or not so just sit back and let 
                  the heads roll. Also, all 10 must be executed before the 
                  mission ends.                   

         46.  Used Car Salesman (5)
                - Detroy a vehicle that has three enemies in it in a ranked
                  playlist or campaign.

                  I suggest doing this on campaign. There seems to be a 
                  glitch, which is how I got it to where when you're in the
                  mission Crow's Nest, when you enter the hangar. There will
                  be a couple of Covenant drop ships that enter the hangar.
                  I just meleed the turret in the front when it got close 
                  and voila achievement.

                  For Multiplayer, you'd be lucky to find a warthog with 3 
                  guys in it but it is possible. Use a Power drain and hit 
                  'em with plasma grenades and rockets before they escape!
                  Oh the poor souls. haha-

         48.  MVP (5)
                - Earn the MVP in a ranked playlist.
 
                  Basically, this achievement just wants you to get at the 
                  top of the score (kills) list. You must win the match too
                  otherwise you won't get it. At least, for me it didn't.

         49.  Maybe Next Time Buddy (5)
                - After being boarded in free for all online play, board the 
                  same vehicle again within 10 seconds.

                  You can do this easily in a rumble pit (social slayer) with
                  a friend. Just wait until you get a vehicle map and just 
                  have them board you, then board them. Simple as that.

                  OTHERWISE-
                  There's really no easy way to get this, but you can prevoke
                  it. Just get a ghost in High Ground or Last Resort and 
                  drive around some enemies, shooting them, but not killing 
                  them. Get close enough to where they would want to hijack 
                  it. Let them, then reclaim what's rightfully yours right 
                  after they take it. You can kill them also, but make sure 
                  you don't destroy the vehicle as well.

                  "As you're being hijacked boost the ghost into a corner. It 
                  makes it harder to the highjacker to get away and you can 
                  reclaim the vehicle with less trouble."
                       Thanks to - President Curval

          There are 9 gold skulls and there are 4 silver skulls to be found.
          Gold skulls gain you achievements, sadly silver ones don't but in
          my opinion are much more awesome!

      *Note: To pick up a skull, walk over it while holding RB [Right Bumper] 

             ALSO, YOU MUST START THE MISSION FROM THE BEGINNING TO GET THE 
             SKULL, IF YOU SKIP TO RALLY POINTS, THEY WILL NOT BE THERE.
          
          GOLD SKULLS

          1. Iron
             "Death carries a heavy price"

                  This skull will cause you to return to the beginning of 
                  the mission when you die. If you use it in co-op, the 
                  death of any player will cause all players to return to 
                  the previous checkpoint. Who would honestly make them-
                  selves suffer using this skull, unless you're ridicu-
                  lously good?           
              
                  Found on Sierra 117-

          2. Black Eye
             "Bash your way to better health"
   
                  If you take any damage to your shield, it won't regenerate 
                  unless you hit an enemy with a melee attack. ONLY use 
                  where you can melee a lot of enemies. Sucks if you like 
                  ridin in cars a lot.
                  
                  Found on Crow's Nest-

          3. Tough Luck
             "Your foes always make every saving throw"
          
                  This skulls effect is also annoying because enemies will
                  be better at diving away from your grenades and needlers.
                  Makes it more of a challenge to kill brutes and the like.

                  Found on Tsavo Highway-

          4. Catch
             "Pull pin. Count to three. Throw"
 
                  Enemies that throw grenades will throw more of them. Like
                  Grunts! That means, more Kamikaze Grunts and a lot more 
                  dying. BUT, enemies will also drop more grenades so that 
                  means more awesome explosions in firefights!
       
                  Found on The Storm-
          5. Fog
             "You'll miss those eyes in the back of your head"

                  This skulls will take away your tracker/radar. Not a big
                  deal since you can see and hear where most enemies are. 
                  Can be annoying when fighting invisible Brutes or in 
                  vehicle fights, but not too shabby.

                  Found on Floodgate-
 
          6. Famine
             "Trust us. Bring a magazine"
      
                  Get ready to conserve some ammo! Actually I didn't find 
                  this one to be much of a problem either. All it does is
                  make ammo more scarce when you pick it up from dead ene-
                  mies. Drop pods and weapon racks will still be full 
                  though!
 
                  Found on The Ark-

          7. Thunderstorm
             "Feild promotions for everyone!"

                  This skull pretty much just promotes every enemy. Every-
                  one will become tougher versions of themselves. Brutes 
                  become Captains/Cheiftans and Grunts will be the toughest 
                  gray versions. And of course, the Flood will be tougher
                  sheilded versions.

                  Found on The Covenant-

          8. Tilt
             "What was once resistance is now immunity"
                  This one can be quite a nuisance since you must take 
                  down the sheilds of Brutes and some of the Flood. This 
                  means you must strip their armor using plasma weapons,
                  then finish them off with some bullets to the head.
 
                  Found on Cortana-

          9. Mythic
             "Coverage under the Covenant Health Plan"

                  This effect will make enemies take more hits to kill.
                  Putting it simply, gives them twice as much of health.
                  I don't recommend this on Legendary, you might just 
                  give yourself a heart attack.

                  Found on Halo-

          SILVER SKULLS

          http://youtube.com/watch?v=WlSWOB3MhIg

         10. Blind
             "Shoot from the hip"

             Makes everything, eh, blind. Which means, no cross hair, no
             sheild, grenade, waypoint, motion tracker or weapons 
             indicator. Not really all that worth it.
             
             Found on Sierra 117-

         11. Cowbell
             "More band for your buck"

             Increases explosions from grenades, needlers, anything that 
             blows up. Awww yeah!

             Found on The Ark-
           

         12. Grunt Birthday Party
             "Light a match..."

             This is my favorite skull, whenever you shoot a grunt in the
             head, confetti will spew out of it's head and scream "hurray"!

             Found on Crow's Nest-

         13. I Would Have Been Your Daddy (IWHBYD)
             "But a dog beat me over the fence"

             I actually didn't notice too much of a difference in dialog with
             this skull on but it's supposed to include extra dialog at 
             certain points in campaign.

          There are 7 total Terminals that are only found in 3 levels. 
          Forerunner Terminals are simply backstory and you read them to find
          out what happened to the last day of the Forerunners. Find all 7 of
          them and get an achievement, yay!
         
          this is a video to find all of the terminals, provided by xTala25x
          http://youtube.com/watch?v=V0QCiP4SVEY

      *Note: You do not need to get them in order of eachother. Also, make
             sure to read everything until a red arrow appears near the 
             bottom. That's a sign you can back out of the Terminal. 
             Annoying, if you're only in it for the achievement.

         The Ark Terminals
         1. This terminal is in the beginning of the level, you head through 
            a small Forerunner corridor with a room to your left. Head into 
            that room to find the terminal on the right. An easy find.
         2. The second one is a bit further through. It's when you follow 
            Guilty Spark and extend the bridge for the scorpions and 
            warthogs. Turn around after extending the bridge. You'll see it.
         3. The last one is underneath a ramped stairwell near the end of 
            the mission before another firefight. There should be a room 
            right under the stairwell and voila!

         The Covenant Terminals
         4. As you make your way to shut down the first sheild, jump across 
            the gap near the first elevator and there's your terminal.
         5. This terminal is actually near the skull, Thunderstorm.
         6. The next terminal is just like the first one in this mission. 
            jump across the gap at the third elevator before deactivating 
            the third sheild to get your terminal.
 
         Halo Terminal
         7. Right in the beginning of the level before any fights. Keep to  
            the right as you're walking and look for some icey ledges leading 
            upwards to the right when you have the choice of jumping down or 
            going right.

         You should now have your Marathon Man achievement, if not, you may 
         have missed a terminal, or did not read or skip through it correct-
         ly. Only press the B button when the red arrow appears near the 
         bottom. The A button will skip through without interrupting 
         anything.

          Completing Campaign on Legendary
|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|

          Completing campaign on legendary is definitely worth the pain. Not
          only do you get achievements but you also get an exclusive ending
          at the end, after the credits. A cutscene will play. After that 
          cutscene, another one will play. A may be a mere 5 seconds long but
          it says it tells a lot if you know what's going on.

          HELLO HALO 4! You pretty only much know what's going on unless you 
          have read the books, OR have a magazine that summarizes everything 
          for you, YES!

          *SPOILER WARNINGS!*
          What happens is Master Chied's half-ridden ship is floating towards
          a black planet.  
 
          The black planet's name is Onyx. And yes, there are other Spartans,
          not just John, or Master Chief. Their names are Fred, Kelly and 
          Linda. They're all trapped on Onyx - insied a "fallout shelter" of
          sorts that's designed to protect its occupants in the event of the 
          Halos being activated - but they're alive. 

          Also, Cortana is not the only learning A.I. construct. She and 
          others were created by the UNSC's Dr. Catherine Halsey,
          who is traped with the remaining Spartans on Onyx. 
          Dr. Halsey made Cortana in her own image. Not too hard to notice...

         Spartan Unlockable Armor
|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|

           I thought this was interesting that the Hayabusa armor was 
           designed after Ryu Hayabusa in the Ninja Gaiden series and also 
           appears in some Dead or Alive games even though I think it looks
           more like a Power Ranger/Gundam Wing rather than a Ninja.
