Halo 4 Achievements Revealed, Red vs Blue Helps Add to Your Gamerscore

Blarg, Blarg, Blarg...

Curious about what 343 Industries has in store for Halo 4 players and their Gamerscores? Recently, they have released the title’s hefty list of Achievements. From these alone, we’ve been given some slight insight as to what else this FPS will have to offer come November. WARNING: SPOILERS AHEAD.

According to the list, it looks like the single player campaign will consist of 8 total missions. Beating the last mission will unlock the campaign difficulty-based end game unlocks; nothing we haven’t seen in terms of a Halo game. Terminals will also be making an appearance, asking players to complete a certain task within each level mission for Gamerscore points. For example, players as Master Chief will be instructed to find and access his personal records during the first chapter of the game (maybe we’ll learn more intricate details about our silent hero?).

The co-op mode we’ve been looking forward to, Spartan Ops, will be offering a bunch of great Gamerscore rewards as well. Ever heard of the popular Halo web series, Red vs. Blue? 343 Industries has also included a few Easter Eggs for loyal fans like to find and enjoy, even within the Spartan Ops episodes. As Community Manager, Jessica Shea, put it on Halo Waypoint:

Our primary goal when creating Halo 4's achievements was to reward milestones and increase replay value while balancing both difficulty and the breadth of game modes. Our secondary goal was to live up to Halo tradition with weird ass names for some of them (hello, The Dongblainer!). While you will only be able to speculate on the exact nature of some of these achievements, here's a peek at their very basic in-game descriptions.
