I completely forgot to Ask Ryan and Sal, how the heck did you guys get the Killtacular achievements on a four team play list?

I got mine while playing that Griff ball shite, if you don't get it now one of the last three Mythic maps will probably be a big team map and you should be able to do it then.

I like Grifball. My one complaint with the Mythic maps is there's too much of the BR invovled with them. Of course that means I'm **** with the Battle Rifle but still every other game had something to do with the BR.

Ant, I got mine the same as Ryan.

It's very easy in a Grifball match to get.


Zombies are the DXP this weekend. I'll be going for the 2 Mythic Achievements for this. They are both similar. In one you need to kill two Zombies, the other kill two humans (while you are a zombie).  Simple!

Once I get those, I think I'll be set on my first account for achievements until ODST comes out.

Does anyone know how long they're planning to keep the Team Mythic playlist?

I suspect the Mythic playlist will end as of May 31st.

Why? Because during May several of the playlists are Mythic required, while others are Mythic optional. Bungie has already stated that one a map pack for a playlist is listed as optional the next month it becomes required.

So I'd venture to guess June the Mythic playlist goes away while the map packs themselves are absorbed into normal matchmaking.

I'm actually looking forward to this in ranked matches.

I wish it would have had it's own ranked playlist instead of being put into the DLC or other playlists though.

In my obsession with trying to get the Killtacular achievement in Griffball this weekend, I got my my first ever Killatasrophy medal.

I know I can get the Killtacular. I got several last night, but they were always on the Foundry board. Every time I got the Sandbox board, I kept playing the same players who finished the game waaay too fast.

The Mythic Brawl Double XP playlist has been helpful to me in knocking off some of those lone wolves achievements this weekend. The thing that I don't get is that it's ranked and I've been more focused on the Achievements then on winning, so despite losing a lot, I keep going up in rank.  ???

That's part of what makes Lone Wolves easier to rank up in. You don't have to win to rank up, you just have to place in the top half of people. So when you have a bigger list of people like that, you can still place in 6th and be ranking up. Placing in 1st will rank you up faster, but it is very hard not to rank up in special ranked playlists like that. Bungie has had ranked Zombie playlists on Halloween before, and I don think you could ever go down a level, you keep going up, or you eventually plateau. They must have the rank in that playlist set-up differently.
