Candy From a Baby

Candy from a Baby is an achievement for Halo: Reach multiplayer matchmaking added with the Defiant Map Pack. The achievement was earned by capturing and scoring a flag carried all the way back from the enemy's capture zone twice during a Stockpile match. It is represented by a blue hand holding two red flags in front of a six-pointed star. The achievement could be earned on any multiplayer map.

Following the shutdown of Xbox 360 Halo online services on January 13, 2022, this achievement is no longer attainable.[1][2]

The achievement is worth 75 Gamerscore.


  • The achievement's name is from an English Idiom "Like taking a candy from a baby", usually referring to how easy a task is.
  • As with Return to Sender and Crackin' Skulls, this achievement did not actually require the player to be playing matchmaking at all to earn it; it was possible to unlock the achievement while playing custom games, as long as the gametype being played was electronically signed by Bungie. (That is, if the gametype was the same one used in matchmaking.) However, this method required downloading the specific gametype file; with those services shut down, unlocking the achievement in a custom game is now functionally impossible.
