"Significantly less" than 1% of Halo players have managed to unlock every achievement across every Halo game, according to the developers of the recently launched Halo hub Halo Waypoint. One of the biggest stumbling blocks for the Halo devoted is picking up all the Halo Wars achievements -- specifically, the "Generals" multiplayer achievement, requiring a significant time investment.
I was contacted by one excited reader who'd claimed to have mastered all of the Halo achievements, a man by the gamertag of Ghosty Taco. Upon further inspection, however, I realized he didn't have the "Generals" achievement. I tasked him with fixing this and come back to me when the job was done.
One of you has managed to rack up all 3,950 achievements for the Halo series. He might be slightly insane. You can verify Ghosty Taco's achievements for yourself on his Xbox Live profile.
So, how'd he do it? A tried and true tradition, of course: Exploiting "noobs."
"I got stuck with some noobs," said Ghosty Taco, "with this map that has flood doors and he kept sending units at me while i keep opening the doors and i kept doing it for every noob i meet on that map because it gives me a totaty of 33600 points every match :D"
Bravo, Ghosty Taco. Bravo.
