>>Full Achievement List Here (http://www.xbox360achievements.org/game/halo-4/achievements/)<<

You know the drill, Just talk umongst yourself about the achievements.

They seem to be easy, lets just hope to god the DLC ones don't require specific maps.

I highly approve of this list! No outrageous multiplayer achievements. Now I just have to hope that the additional achievements and gamerscore that will eventually be added on to this list will be all for new Spartan Ops missions, and not some stupid multiplayer achievements like the Reach and Halo 3 map packs gave us.

Meh. Too easy. Hopefully legendary will be a challenge. It's been waaaay too easy the past few games. Hopefully it's as difficult as Halo CE's, but not as difficult as Halo 2's campaign. At least there's no achievement for getting a perfection or getting a double kill with a Spartan laser. I nearly had to boost for those.

Saw them earlier. Nice little list. I'm close to finally completing H3/ODST (maximum of 15 achievements between both of them) after all these years! Just need the Reach DLC to be cheap and I'll get onto that!

Looks like we'll have to play through the campaign twice as well! Or more if you don't do it on Legendary!

i agree the list looks fairly easy compared to other halo titles. im betting that the DLC adds some tougher MP achievements :P. it looks like they had a good number dedicated to spartan ops, even a RvB easter egg.

wondering how tough the campaign will be on legendary, ive seen some footage but i guess the only way to know would be to play it :(

EDIT : i actually like the new pics for the achievements.

BUT what they dont confirm is whether or not skulls are findable like in Halo 2, 3 & CEA or are all automatically unlocked like in ODST & Reach.

i really hope they are findables because I really enjoyed going skull hunting in the older Halo's (added to the campaign replay value)

Hopefully it's as difficult as Halo CE's, but not as difficult as Halo 2's campaign.Honestly, after playing Halo 2 on Legendary, Halo CE feels like a walk in the park. Halo 2 Legendary was Brutal. I thought Reach Legendary Solo was an Acceptable Challenge, so I personally hope its more around that.

I want more Single player achievements personally, but at least there aren't any dumb multiplayer achievements. . . Yet.

I'm disappointed in this list to be honest.

There are not nearly enough "bro" themed achievements to satisfy my lust for hip vernacular. Only a daily basis, I say "bro" between 15-5000 times, and if 343gie can't understand that this is how cool people speak, then they will surely fail.

Seems to be a nice, easy and balanced list, but I can't help but feel like those "change X" and "create and save" achievements should have been reduced to make room for some other achievements since they are quite petty.

The only thing I don't really like about this list is been expected to play though on Co-Op. It's hard enough trying to schedule a time to play with any of my friends these days as it is, no way we're gonna find time to play though the entire game. Co-Op should always be optional, not mandatory.

You can always plug in a second controller if you have one.

Doing that also lets you just throw bodies at the enemies non-stop until you win. This is assuming there's no Gimmicky Space Mission Section™ like in Long Night of Solace.

Lone Wolf Legend
Complete the Campaign solo on Legendary difficulty.
90 points

Bromageddon
Complete the Campaign co-operatively on Heroic or harder.
40 pointsAn interesting combination, probably 3 total playthroughs to get these two achievements plus all the collectables and mission-specific tasks. Overall I like it though, hopefully the Spartan Ops are not that hard. One question though, does this mean there are no skulls to find in the game and are just options (like in Reach) or is there just no achievement related to finding them?

MixMaker1
08-24-2012, 08:06 AM
Super pumped for these. While these are "easier" than most of the other Halo games - they're all attainable and don't require any boosting in MP (Wargames).

This is a big plus for me as I've collected ALL the Halo achievements in the franchise. I'm going to make a breakdown video of the achievements soon and will post it here.

// Rage modus off.

Looks like a decent list. Nothing special, nothing impossible, probably completable in 15-25 hours. And then there is that stupid part they call multiplayer which will suck up your sociallife, (school)work and other things that aren't multiplayer related.

Whoever decided to put in Solo Legendary achievements should be taken to a dark room and beaten up with nunchucks.

"A Monument to All Your Sins" was bad enough, but this is getting ridiculous (unless there's an invincibility Skull or something).

I have no love whatsoever for achievements like those.

I LOVED it in Reach. Speedrunning + tips made it pretty easy to do. LASO is an entirely different beast, however. I love the fact I will have to tackle Halo 4 on solo Legendary.

The real question for me is to do this on Normal/Heroic first to get throufgh the story or tackle it immediately, and stay away from online spoilers etc, via Legendary. Hmmmm...

not totally, i always do the campaign solo legendary before multiplayer:). also i think it will fit into the other modes more than before, if you look at how they made Halo4 it actually ties the gamemodes into eachother quite well. but i always enjoy beating the campaign first.

i find them very satisfying, but its prolly a bias opinion considering i always beat the campaign on solo legendary regardless. with determination and patience i think any halo player can manage solo legendary, its just most people give up or cant be bothered.

Agreed, I loved 'MFAYS" in Halo: Reach. It was a true achievement that set apart the boys from the men. You couldn't really boost that achievement, so people that have it could sit there and be proud of that accomplishment.

As for the overall, I've got to say I'm happy with the tasks at hand and I plan to have single-player related achievements done in 24 hours as is tradition, though a couple things I'm noticing have me disappointed.

1. Only 8 missions? My only hope is that they're really long missions because otherwise this is going to be a really short game. I'm pretty sure this Campaign would be about the length of ODST if that's the case.

2. Looking at all the secondary achievements for each level, it looks like there's still going to be a large amount of covenant interaction. Jacking wraiths, killing hunters and gravity hammer... I knew they would be in the levels to some degree, but the fact that 4 levels warranted covenant-related achievements suggests Forerunner involvement may not be as heavy as originally believed. Only 1 achievement even relates to the Forerunner.

Other than that, nothing too terrible to complain about. Hopefully Spartan-Ops isn't as repetitive as Firefight or beating a chapter solo on Legendary WILL be annoying. Looks like the rest of the S-OPs cheevos will be simple enough. Since they're released episodically, not a lot any of us can do to get them until they come out. We'll just have to focus on reaching that SR-20 rank and completing the 25 challenges in the meantime.

I never thought playing on solo legendary would be fun. I always thought I would get flustered and angry without having fun with the game; however, I was completely wrong. Going for MFAYS in Reach was by far the funnest time I have had playing a game. I'm so pumped to do it again in Halo 4!

Agree with everything you said.

I definitely think I'm going to go for all the SP achievements within 24 hours. It's going to be crazy... I am beyond excited for this game, I'm just amped up beyond belief. Halo is the pinnacle of gaming for me and I cannot wait to play 4!

.

good observations, 8 missions does seems a little short when you think about it. but lets hope they are longer :), i actually felt ODST campaign was kind of legnthy. but that might of just been my personal experience, because i spent a lot of time exploring.

i think the foreunner will still play a big role, from what ive heard / read its basically their planet that chief lands on? i tried not to get too much info on campaign in fear of spoilers.

Well, yes with friends it would be more fun. I don't have many friends who play the series though, and those that do aren't on at the same times usually. Definitely not enough to go through the entire campaign with.

As for CEA, I was mistaken actually, there was one level that I did with a second controller. Technically that's still solo, but it made the level much easier (for the cheevos.) Actually, there were a number of cheevos that required me replaying certain levels with a second controller, but only one that I only did the one time. There were a number of hair pulling moments on Legendary, and a few spots that I got stuck for an hour or so cause of bad loadouts and checkpoints at just the wrong time. But it's manageable. Honestly the hardest part cheevo wise was the damn warthog ride at the end.

I've been thinking about doing the same thing.

My two issues are:
1. Beating the game quickly that first night and experiencing the storyline.
2. Not spoiling any story stuff

If I do Normal or Heroic - we could miss out on a Legendary ending, people will be talking about it in MP so that would suck. And if I start it on Legendary, may not have enough time to beat the whole thing in a night... that being said, I'd love to try ;)

I realize this thread is already here for "achievement discussion", but taking a poll to see what % of people here are disappointed by the lack of originality in the achievement list is a different thing if you ask me, and was fine in its own thread.

Ah well, wtf-ever. It seems the forums here on x360a are getting more over-moderated by the day.

thats one reason i typically beat the campaign before touching MP, always weary of spoilers. but also its just habbit now i suppose, when i first started halo i didnt even have XBL so campaign was everything:).

actually knew a kid in high school who beat H3 that night it came out, on solo legendary. none of us believed him until we saw it on his gamertag, i couldnt imagine running thru an entire campaign on solo legendary in one night. i will hop right into it, but that playthru will take me probably a couple days.

I'm too scared to romp through Halo 4 on solo legendary for my first go. Those Prometheans look like they can dish out some serious punishment.

I might do heroic, maybe with a friend joining for the ride so we can get those co-op achievements out of the way earlier. As long as heroic is still considered "the way Halo is meant to be played."

I too am glad there arenty any moronic MP ones and am very glad solo legendary is back, but I just think they did a great job on CE:A's achievements and missed a chance to repeat that.

I still don't get why people wussed out and used 2 controllers or a partner to male CE:A's achievements easier. I did every achievement in that game solo with no skulls and no extra controller, THEN did the co-op and skulls achievements. It wasn't even that challenging, but what little challenge it posed made it fun. Wimping out on them with bandanna or co-op would ruin the fun.

Got 2 days paid off from work to play it. Figure I can have the Campaign beaten Solo Legendary the first day, than the co-op run and miscellaneous achievements will come quickly after that. Once you beat the game on Legendary by yourself everything else becomes a trial of patience and nothing more. lol.

I've never understood playing through a game on a lesser difficulty unless it involves NG+ like Mass Effect or Borderlands. With a game like Halo, your abilities are the same all the way through and no matter how bad you are at the game, the enemy is your best teacher. If you get stuck at a part, your countless deaths will teach you and hone you until you can overcome it. You acquire skills and a new perspective on how to play the game when you do it the 'masochist' way.

From a GameFly (or maybe it was IGN or even this site here) article I read a few days ago, the playtester/reporter was having quite an amount of trouble going through the game - on normal. They attributed it to not being conditioned to the new enemy types but I don't know...

I'm not sure how that makes me feel.
On one hand, it will make legendary an actual achievement, and every checkpoint received will actually feel like a victory.
On the other hand, a lot of swears will be dropped, controllers smashed, and puppies drowned (or maybe just the first one)

unless, of course, the reporter just sucks :p

I understand hard achievements making you feel like you earned them. (Like I felt like I earned Monument to All Your Sins) But I feel that some of the online achievements for previous Halo games were more luck based, or promotive of boosting than actually earning. Also, the number of them that were to do a very specific action on a very specific map.... kinda sucked IMO. That said, I do feel that giving achievements for changing a loadout or altering your stance is a little lame.

I didn't notice the spoiler segment until I hit the quote button, but that's exactly what I was gonna say. The reporter probably just sucks. I know they upped the difficulty a little, but it can't be that much of a hike. I don't think anything will ever top the difficulty of Halo 2 sans the Noob Combo.

Hmmmmm. Lookin at this list again, are there any really "boostable" ones? So is there even a need for a boosting thread this time around? Seems like an awfully easy list with no real multiplier ones.

Nah, I don't think a boosting thread will be necessary for the retail list. Maybe for future DLC though.

It's an easy list, but the ones involving co-op could potentially require "boosting" because they're friends either suck at the game (Hello :D) or they're anti-social and don't have friends to play it with (Had that issue with Halo: Reach when all of my "friends" ditched Halo for CoD. I no longer speak to them. lol)

From a GameFly (or maybe it was IGN or even this site here) article I read a few days ago, the playtester/reporter was having quite an amount of trouble going through the game - on normal. They attributed it to not being conditioned to the new enemy types but I don't know...

unless, of course, the reporter just sucks :p

It's been 4 days since my last post in the Blackout thread...

I'm not too keen on the legendary solo achievement so 910g will probably be my limit I didn't to the solo one in Reach either.

I did do most of Halo CE:A solo on legendary but then I had the infinite ammo skull and grunt birthday turned on so I sat far away from the enemy and spammed plasma grenades.

Midnight release:

I get home, I start on Legendary Solo. Hopefully finish it before my friends pick up the game after work those days or what-have-you.

Later that day: If my friends finally own the game, I'll play it on Heroic with them.

After I finish up the campaign on both accounts...

I spend the next 7 days levelling up in Halo Multiplayer for unlocks and loadout customizations :D If I'm lucky, I'll reach "Specializations" within a week or two of playing.

Honestly, Reach solo on Legendary wasn't that hard. It mostly just came down to pacing yourself and taking your time in a few places. The only time I found it got hard was when I'd hit a checkpoint at exactly the moment I didn't want to (like down to one clip with 4 enemies still alive and you step over the invisible line that makes it go Saved! :(). That and the very end of Pillar of Autumn. That cannon sequence was really unforgiving on Legendary. But it was worth it when I finished it all. So yeah, definitely plan on doing it again for 4. :)

It actually wasn't that hard at all. "Noob Combo" through most of it, and realize that there are a COUPLE places where it becomes much easier to simply run PAST the enemies instead of actually fighting them. In fact, on the last mission, you can skip most of it by simply sneaking around the encounters or running past them as fast as possible (like with a Mongoose or sprint).

... That and the very end of Pillar of Autumn. That cannon sequence was really unforgiving on Legendary.

Pretty much the bane of my existence right there.
To have completed everything, without any major problems, and then get stuck death after death after death trying to use the cannon... It was almost will-breaking. And I'm not one to throw my controller, flip over a table and cry in the fetal position after 50+ tries but...

Then again, I massively failed at the first time you're shooting the grenade launcher out the hornet on my first/heroic play through, but on legendary I made it in one pass... :confused:

Regarding the "A Legendary Episode" acievement:

I completed all the Chapters online on legendary but the achievement did not pop.

I then returned to the first Chapter and completed it ALONE on legendary and it unlocked.

Just a quick fix for anyone else who may have issues. This will also net you the "Crimson Alone" achievement, and it's rather simple completing them on legendary solo.

I have a question about a few achievements, if you are playing co-op does anyone know if the checkpoints are re-loadable for both people to get all listed below let me know thanks! I already realize both can get all the ones on missions 1-4 special achievements, what about these?

Hijacked a Wraith and used it to kill at least four enemy Wraiths in mission 5 on Heroic or harder.
Tricked or forced a Hunter to fall to his demise in mission 6.
Took out both Hunters using only the Sticky Detonator in mission 7.
Killed 3 Crawlers in one hit with the Gravity Hammer in mission 8.

I would think that the mission 8 one would be doable for both people just a guess, the ones I'm really wondering about are the killing the hunters and wrath ones hopefully you don't get a checkpoint after killing them.... Anyone with the game early know?

I'd say Missions 5 and 7's challenges will need to be done once per person wanting them.

Wasn't one of the challenges solo only?

No. Mission 5 is doable with 4 people if you revert. There is like 6 wraiths in the first half. And like 6 a in the second half. The 2nd half is where you get scorpion tanks (Hence 6 wraiths). Steal one and kill 4 to pop the cheevo. Revert and alternate players. It is best done there as all wraiths are next to each other as opposed to the first half as they are scattered around.

I did it with 4 people so enemy numbers may vary depending on the number of you. Did it on Heroic.

You cannot steal a wraith then kill another wraith and revert to keep killing the same wraith. You must kill 4 different wraiths. (Like I said though - you can revert AFTER you get the cheevo).

Huge letdown.

Just finished doing Mortardom (hijack a wraith and kill 4 other wraiths with it) during my 1st run through the game solo legendary. Talk about rough, had to melee the 4 "wings" off the 4 corners of the wraith to fit it into the "thing" to carry it from the first area to the second area. I didn't know there were so many wraiths or I probably woulda just hijacked one in the 2nd area lol. I think I've killed 7 already.

Edit: Well there are 16 wraiths total, at least on legendary, so it was totally unnecessary for me to wiggle the wraith through the "thing". But it was nice to get the achieve out of the way and just blow everything to itsy bitsy bits for the rest of the mission in whatever way I saw fit.

Quick question, could I jump between solo and co-op, and not ruin my progress of Legendary? So, if I finish one level on solo Legendary, jump to co-op, and then back again, would that void it? Does it have to be done in ONE full playthrough?

EDIT: Scratch that, I'm already pissed off over the second stage... at the first section. What a cheap way to make the game 'hard'... will wait for guides to pass through it.

For this mission i carried the AR with me at all times without dieing, but then at the end where u drive the ghosts, its impossible for me not to die, so if u die there does it void the achievement cause i didnt get it at end of mission

I kept my magnum with me and it had no ammo. I died a fair few times on the ghost part too and it still unlocked. Did you replace your AR with any other weapon and then pick it back up? That could be why it did not unlock for you.

Yea, use a plasma pistol. The first wraith you come across is not that useful since you won't be able to get it onto the mammoth to cross the tributary. But you might be able to if you destroy the wraith's pointy sides. So if you have to, get the wraith in the next area with the 3 shields you have to destroy. Get a plasma pistol and any precision weapon. Take out the gunner. Plasma pistol the wraith, doing it multiple times if you have to and then jump on it and get on the plasma turret. This forces the driver to get out allowing you to kill him with the turret. You can kill 3 or 4 wraiths in the next section but then you come across another tributary. So you have to leave that wraith behind and continue. In the next area, make sure you grab a plasma pistol before you enter the forerunner area and carry it with you until you get back outside. Outside there will be many wraiths. Just got this a few hours ago, so everything is fresh in my head lol.

This is my first run of the campaign and I decided to do it on Legendary, and have been stuck on this part for a few days now haha. I was lucky enough to get in the gunner once, but instead of using the gun to kill the elite who hopped out I hopped out and tried to take him on myself, which was just nerves and excitement kicking in from actually hopping in that fucking gun! I may try saving a grunt or something, after knocking out the 4 ghosts (I've heard the number of ghosts that are dropped by the Phantom at this stage is unlimited, but from my checkpoint only two more are dropped after destroying the two original grounded ones) and using the plasma pistol against it.

I've heard twice now that the first wraith isn't usually the best one, because you have to try squeeze it through a tight area, but just to save any unforeseen hassle down the line, I'll keep trying to get this one. Due to it being my first time solo legendarying this game, I don't wanna get a wraith after all this time just to fuck it all up haha.

Not true. I've gotten the first wraith onto the mammoth many times to get it across the first river. It just takes patience and a little driving finesse to fit it in the mammoth.

I just got the achievement playing solo where on the Forerunner mission where you have to carry a UNSC weapon the whole way through the mission til the end without dropping it. It was on Heroic so that was even tougher since I was doing it solo, but dang when you run out of ammo on that 2nd gun and can only use your first, that's brutal.

Or do i have to complete each mission again?
