An Achievement is a reward given to players when they accomplish certain gaming feats decided by the developer in videogames published for Games for Windows Live, the Xbox 360, and Xbox One consoles. Since the launch of the Xbox 360, it has been a mandatory requirement by Microsoft that all videogames published on the console (including 360 versions of multiplatform games) feature Achievements.
Most Achievements also award the player Gamerpoints that count towards a gamer's total Gamerscore. These points, while not redeemable, are intended to serve as a tangible form of special rewards for unusual or skilled actions within gameplay.

Halo 3: ODST Achievements
- Main article: List of Achievements for Halo 3: ODST
All Achievements in Halo 3: ODST are listed below. The total amount of Achievements in Halo 3: ODST is 47, with a Gamerscore total of 1,000. Unlike the Achievements from Halo 3, the actions required by several Achievements in ODST must be completed on specific levels in order to count. For example, the I Like Fire Achievement can only be unlocked on the level Data Hive.
It is worth noting that Halo Waypoint has no Achievements in and of itself. This is likely due to the fact that because Waypoint contains no original gameplay, any Achievements granted by it would just be rewarding players again for accomplishments they had already completed. Waypoint instead has Awards, achievable and viewable simply by accessing Waypoint after carrying out certain tasks in the various Halo games. These awards are Avatar items and can be equipped to your Xbox Live Avatar.
