Alas, Poor Yorick is a Halo 3 achievement when the player gets 3 Oddball melee kills in a ranked or social match on a Legendary or Mythic map.[1] It is worth 25 Gamerpoints.

Methods[edit | edit source]

  1. Try getting this on either Ghost Town, Avalanche or Blackout. Some people get oddball by searching DLC slayer (which is no longer offered). Try searching ranked team doubles. You can get a couple Oddball games on Blackout (only if every player has the map pack). Just try standing behind a corner or in a Bubble Shield and when they come close melee with the oddball.
  2. Although rare, this is most easily achieved when playing 3 Ball, one of the Double EXP Weekend playlists.
  3. This method requires a friend willing to help you. When playing a Free-For-All Oddball game, if your friend obtains the ball, and you need the achievement, you can ask for it, and kill him three times.

Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • Yorick was the deceased court jester whose skull was exhumed by a gravedigger in Shakespeare's Hamlet.
    • One of Bungie's earlier games (Marathon Infinity) made the very same reference in the form of a level name.
