Just a quick little forum post, I wanna see how many people out there have Achilles. It's a heartwarming moment to hear how many people worked together, to get this magnificent set of armor. (Helmet, armor, or both. I wanna hear from you!)
I have both helmet and armor. Got both by going to the recruiting section and joining late in the grind. Got the helmet fist and was going to just be happy with that but one day that company discharged me for some reason. So after awhile I noticed another company pretty close to the armor and joined them. I did a lot of grinding for them to push them over the top for armor. I was going to stick around and help them get to the helmet but after they got the armor the few that were grinding the required playlist left. Every time I singed in I noticed only a couple people playing and usually it was firefight or customs neither of which helped commendations. The leader was never playing H5 or anything. I knew that company would never get to the helmet with just me essentially so I left that company. I never have even worn either of them.
I have the armor and helmet. I'll never wear it, but I have it.

Congratulations, when did you earn your set?

That's right, you're a monitor. I forgot you guys know more than me when it comes to this stuff. Anyway, I recently earned my body armor.

Got both of them last year if I remember correctly.
i use the helmet with the hellcat (any of the 3 variants), i dont like the achilles armor but i have it
The only sad part is when the SC gets the armor and most of the people in the SC leave for good.
April of this year for the armor.

Don't know how active my company is as I just play/queue on my own, but we have lots of work to do for the helmet. If we get it before the next game comes out, cool. If not, no big deal. I don't intend to jump to another company just to sneak in and get the helmet.

I'm unlikely to equip either piece.
I have both and pretty much carried the entire company on my back for getting the last commendation: killing marines. I must have killed thousands of marines in the span of a few weeks.
Got the helmet on 6-26-16. My company at the time did it in just over 5 months.
If you want an exact date, it was 5/10/16 when we got the helmet.
4 months. If only waypoint could keep stats like this, hmm...
We got it but just came back from a break and my company is inactive now.
I’ve had the full Achilles set since June 2016.
I have the full set as of a little over a year ago. I don't remember the exact date. I'm coming up on the armor again in my new company. I know I won't unlock it again, but i enjoy the grind so Im happy to help others obtain it
I’ve got them. Getting them burned me out of Halo 5; I pretty much stopped playing after unlocking them. My company logged the official unlock dates.

Though technically it took me longer to get the helmet than it should’ve because my first company booted me for no reason after getting the armor, and I found a new company that hadn’t yet gotten the armor.

You know I've always wondered, since you're smarter than me in most senses I figured I'd ask you, is it, in any way humanly possible, to get the full set of Achilles solo? You start a SC, get 4 friends in there, and you're the only one to do the work?
