Turok gives achievement for team killing

Worst multiplayer achievement in the history of games

You're teeing up a sweet bow shot, about to nail some dude right in the face with an arrow when one of your team-mates 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 rewards achievement point 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.
