How to get the Peeker’s Disadvantage achievement in Halo Infinite

Scout out the Snipers.

Halo Infinite has dozens of achievements geared toward multiplayer, and each of these achievements became obtainable when the Halo Infinite Multiplayer Beta dropped. One of these achievements, the Peeker's Disadvantage, requires players to take out a sniper in a precise way.

To earn the Peeker's Disadvantage achievement in Halo Infinite, players must "Back Smack," an enemy that zoomed in with a scoped in weapon in a matchmade game. Players can earn this achievement in any game mode, so long as it isn't private. We recommend playing the Arena maps in Quick Play, but this isn't mandatory. Choose your mode of preference before starting up matchmaking.

Once in a multiplayer match, keep an eye out for players with a scoped weapon like the Battle Rifle, Sniper Rifle, Stalker Rifle, or Skewer, for example. If you spot an enemy with one of these weapons, stay quiet and remain undetected. Many players with these weapons will stand still when lining up a shot. Try to wait for your enemy to stand still and position yourself directly behind them. Melee the enemy from behind to initiate a "Back Smack" that will kill them instantly and unlock this achievement simultaneously if they zoomed in on their ranged weapon.

Fiesta Mode is an excellent game type to attempt this trophy, as all players spawn with random weapons the entire game. Some of your enemies are sure to spawn with a Sniper during the game. Keep an eye out for a long muzzle and bright light from a zoomed scope on your screen.
