Achievements for team killing?

Nov 20, 2007

You're teeing up a sweet bow shot, about to nail some dude right in the face with an arrow when one of your teammates approaches and puts a round into your face? Why? Because that's what the Grab Bag Achievement wants you to do.

The Grab Bag Achievement gives 10 points to a player if they "Kill at least 1 creature, 1 enemy, 1 teammate, and yourself in the same round of a public match". We've never heard of anything so ridiculous.

Online Achievements are bad enough as it is ("Can you guys get in a car and let me shoot you with a rocket launcher please?" "Okay.") But an Achievement that actually rewardsGamerscore whores to kill fellow team mates is surely a one-way road to ruin.

NeoGAF poster Bishoptl, also a known spokesperson for Disney Interactive, defended online Achievements.

"Grab Bag aside, is achievement whoring that prevalent in multiplayer?" he asked.

"The Live games that I do play online don't have much of that occurring at all," he said. He will see it occurring when a team mate frags his ass in Turok.
