Didn't buy the map pass, but when I went to the marketplace the map pack showed up as zero points.

Nice. Got the maps. If you don't see the pop up screen about the maps delete the title update, that worked for me.

Looks like you don't have to play crimson dlc playlist for achievements I got clay pigeon on SWAT on harvest oddly enough is the only achievement that added to my gamerscore while the other 4 don't but show as unlocked

You got those achievements before they were added to Xbox.com. Common problem with DLC on the day it's released. The only way to fix it now is to recover your profile and earn them again.

Yeah that's what I did. Luckily they're still buggy as Fuck first game back from deleting my profile ran up to someone meleed them and earned two achievements. Odst (killing someone while jumping on a man cannon and special delivery killing someone with melee after jumping from a man cannon)

Same here. I know MS isn't going to give anything to those inconvenienced* by this so the more money they can 'lose' over this the better... and as always. Map packs split the player base so the less than happens the better it is for everyone.

* Was I inconvenienced? In the great scheme of things... Only a little. It was the last day of my weekend so I missed out on the best opportunity to experience the maps in bulk but whatever. I do find it annoying that their isn't enough Q&A done in this business anymore to keep from screwing over the more loyal costumers. (I mean does it hurt to try your deployment strategy in an offline mode before doing it for real? Or if you have doubts go a day/half a day early for the season pass holders in case issues do arise? I got to imagine that even a single day early on release would bolster season pass sales.)

I would say get the pass $25 isnt as much as other season passes ($50 for COD) and you get the 3 map packs and is it really possible to get bored of Halo?

I'm surprised crimsom is still free usually MS fixes their mistakes quickly.

btw mantis foot stomp will be the hardest achievement to get since everyone uses plasma pistol as a secondary

Extraction sucks when no one on your team goes for the extraction points. I saw a dude on my own team camp out on top of an enemy extraction with sniper rather than go in and steal it.

Achievements aren't that bad actually, I got two of the annoying ones somehow really easily. Was playing king of the hill, meleed some guy to death and got ODST and Special Delivery for 60G, which is good because those two looked difficult to get.

I only have airborne warthog kill (just need a little luck), board mantis (fairly easy) and the 20 stomps one. I think the stomps one is the worst, as I 1) never like to use the mantis and 2) don't think i'll ever be in a situation where I can stomp 20 people.

I found most people voting for maps with mantis/turrets obviously to try and get achievements done so hopefully after a week or two people will just focusing on playing the map appose to achievement hunting.

Also is it confirmed that you can score these achievements on non crimson maps like Reach etc or is it strictly DLC only?

I'm going to let you in on a little secret. Every day, once a day, give yourself a present. Don't plan it. Don't wait for it. Just let it happen. It could be a new shirt at the men's store, a catnap in your office chair, or two cups of good, hot black coffee.

The achievements are glitched. I got ODST and I was nowhere near a man cannon. GAF thread posters and Reddit users in /Halo are confirming this also.

I got ODST while blowing a guy away with a rocket launcher... so unless there is slag that 343 is using that I don't know about I too can confirm this issue. :lol:

ODST achivement is definitely glitched - killed a guy with a grenade while jumping and got it. Shrug. Glad I got it since I hate these fucking "Hurr hurr! Wacky gameplay!" achievements that make people play like retards at the expense of working towards an objective - that get a kill while in the air with the Warthog is especially stupid.

Can't remember the name of it, but the one that requires you to kill a guy with a melee while landing off a man cannon is also one I stumbled onto. I was on a ledge above a guy, jumped off and melee'd him for a kill and got it. So it may just be that you need some elevation to pull it off, and as long as you're falling, you'll get it.

Never going to get that "foot stomp 20 guys in the Mantis" one, so I guess that's the end of me thinking I'll S-Rank Halo 4's achievements at some point.

Extraction isn't great but it doesn't hurt anything. Not a lot of smart play going on that I saw, but it may be that people are still getting used to it.

The air warthog is all luck I've been lucky enough to have nice random people drive for me in the warthog and drive off of cliffs hoping I get the achievement but no go so far

Any of the maps got the Gauss Cannon Warthog? That would make the process real easy...


Also, in other related news... Has anyone gotten a Splatter with the Gauss Cannon? :)

I literally had a guy hide behind a warthog on exile and when I shot the warthog (I was aiming for him BTW) the hog was shoved back on him and gave me, the turret operator, a splatter kill. :lol: (Its on my file share if anyone is curious.)

I am glad the ODST and Special Delivery achievements are glitched as they sound pretty annoying to get. I have also had some randoms in warthog all trying to get kills but no luck yet. The machine gun turret is a little tricky to get a kill with.

Nope. There's like 4 warthogs on harvest though I tried parking a warthog on a ledge to see if it would unlock that didn't work.

Special delivery legit would have been annoying. I camped on SWAT harvest for clay pigeon because I knew where the man cannon's were and just waited ez points!

So what does this mean? are they pulling crimson map pack from people who got it free?

looks like it

As an additional reward to those customers that participated in our "14 Day, Buy and Play" program (which ran from Nov. 6 – Nov. 20), we are providing complimentary access to the Crimson Map Pack for a limited time, through Tuesday, December 18 at 9am UTC/GMT.
There were some initial complications with the distribution of the "14 day, Buy and Play" reward tokens, and so we decided to provide the additional reward of complimentary access to the Crimson Map Pack, for a limited time, as a "thank you" to our customers that contributed to the success of the "Halo 4" launch.

343 decided that everyone had gotten their specialization code emails or messages and closed that official thread posted a few pages back....um hello guys THOUSANDS of players including me still dont have a code. Losing respect for 343 every day, their customer service and support is a joke.
