Is Endure really that tough?
 
This game has been out for a while now and I'm still seeing a ton of threads on various forums about how tough Endure is. What exactly are ppl having trouble with? I know when I got the achievement I did it with just two other ppl and hid the 4th guy in a corner.

No, the hard part is finding 3 other people willing to sit around for ~2hrs.

Not really having to do with endure, just want to put it out there; No Matchmaking = Major FAIL.

Steed 03-01-2010 10:53 PM

I didn't think so, when I went to my friends when it first came out, I played with a few other friends and we got it our first try.

Kaiyo 03-02-2010 02:04 AM

The hard thing about it is having 3 three others joining and staying for 2 hours while making sure no-one is disconnected in the meanwhile.

IWHBYD 03-02-2010 02:59 AM

Ok, so basically the achievement isn't giving most people problems it's getting a full team together to try it. That makes sense.

This is the most true, most accurate, post in the history of this website.

I will never understand in a million billion lifetimes how Bungie could not add Matchmaking to ODST. It's like they wanted it to fail, maybe it's a tax write off thing or something?

So very true, endures easy shame Bungie didn't keep the bar at reaching the 7th set on legendary like they originally planned as that would actually of been a challenge :P

The hardest part is finding three players that can hold there own in a fight and have good connections. Otherwise it's not so bad.

Lol it's a bitch if you're playing with idiots. Then it becomes an epic battle for survival!

Geerolla 03-28-2010 08:17 AM

About a month ago I tried this achievement and with less than a round left (and 10-12 lives) the connection lagged out. Haven't brought myself to try it again since. If it weren't for that I'd have it no problem. It wasn't even that difficult to get as far as we did.

Captain3Beers 04-09-2010 09:52 PM

Only once since purchasing ODST have I actually had 4 players on firefight to go for this achievement. Got all the way down to 3 enemies left in the final round, and connection timed out. Damn thing just froze...Havent tried since.

I feel your pain. I tried for this achievement recently and my kill-death ratio was more than 2 times better than the 2nd best player on my squad. I had 325 kills and 8 deaths (2 deaths didn't even take a life away from our team because they were during the bonus rounds. I wanted to make sure we won the extra lives). The next lowest amount of deaths was 19.

GodofChaos 04-14-2010 10:29 PM

The feat is easy the teammates kill.

-TheDragonstar- 04-15-2010 12:21 AM

Okay, I'm not the only who gave up after a close attempt at achieving this. I had a really good team, but towards the end my ISP reset and my teammates got pissed off, bad reppped me (I think), etc. It was a disheartening moment, I won't lie. Haven't played it much since, but I'm willing to try again if anyone is willing to stomach that ordeal lol

MigrantAleXx 04-15-2010 04:36 AM

Cool least i know it wont be that bad wen i do it this weekend with my friends. just the time factor thats going to be a pain.

Kninth Duke 04-23-2010 01:14 PM

I played with a really great team last night and we got Endure relatively easily. It would have been much less time consuming but my 3rd roommate unplugged my other roommate's network cable and we had to start over after about 2/3 of the way through. However, the 2 members from here we were playing with were really cool about it and we all agreed to give it another shot. I think we finished the 4th set with at least 6 lives remaining. Not too bad considering how terrible I played the 2nd game compared to the 1st. I was on fire on our 1st attempt. I think having to restart really knocked me off my game, plus I was getting really tired at that point.

agentplatypus 04-23-2010 01:21 PM

I personally thought it was quite simple. I did it with my friends and we got it first or second try (don't remember for sure which one as it was a while ago).

And yea no matchmaking is a huge failure.

Mr DDT 04-23-2010 02:08 PM

Its Tense Thats that makes it fun

Magnus7 04-27-2010 12:29 AM

If you play Halo 3 Multiplayer, then just ask players you meet in there if they're willing to help with Firefight.

A friend and I found two other guys in Halo 3 from the the same country as us (handy for connection issues), then organised to load up ODST for the Endure achievement.

Bu yes, you need to find the right kind of people who are talented enough to hold their own, are good communicators, and will actually stick to a game plan.

We got Endure in just under 2 hours.

Firaxin 04-27-2010 01:05 AM

It shouldn't be that hard to find 3 other people to play with, especially if you're still in school/college/etc, where you can put ads in the school paper/website/send e-mails/etc. I got the achievement with my brother, my roommate, and my roommate's cousin.

Strongbow 04-27-2010 07:46 PM

I'm glad I got this out of the way early, I remember telling my friends:-

Me - "Are you sure you want to go for the Endure achievement now?"
Friends - "Yeah sure, we're ready"
Me - "That good lets crack on then, I've been told it takes like 2 hours to do it"
Friends - "What? 2 hours? Fuck that mate I've got to go in an hour"
Me - "Oh ok then lads, lets go play Call of Duty"

So I checked here for other hunters and managed to get a team of legands to do it with me, problem is once you've got it you really don't want to help anyone else get it becuase it takes so long, so you only really get help from people that haven't done it.

Good luck with it anyway lads.

imatt B4M 04-27-2010 07:48 PM

It was easy for me tried it 2 times got it two times. (This account and my old account)

GSUS 04-29-2010 10:34 AM

its not realy hard as mentioned already it takes some time about 2h and of course you need some poeaple who know what they are doing.

perryman 04-29-2010 02:08 PM

done this a couple of days ago seemed fine a little lag but we all managed to stay in.

bblcreator8790 04-30-2010 02:47 AM

I would have had this like three times if not for people lagging out the first two times. If you don't have three other good players though it will be difficult, one time we had three great players including myself but one guy who wasn't that good and lost all of our lives for us and we couldn't make it out of the second set.

Venomized 04-30-2010 03:13 AM

finding 3 people to play with. And hoping that no one gets kicked out, disconnected, etc. Because ends the game for everyone.

Iv AJay vI 04-30-2010 03:56 PM

Endure is easy. I've helped like 5 or 6 people get it. Play with people as close to you as possible. [Same state, coast, w/e]

optics 05-03-2010 07:33 PM

Tried it once, failed halfway through the last round. I blame my team for sucking... well 2 of them.... One took like 28 lives, and got the lowest score. The other stayed idle several time.

kovenant 05-05-2010 11:31 PM

yeah. easy achievement if u can find the people. i suck at halo, i only play to boost my gamerscore. i got lucky and received an invite from 3 people here needing a 4th and we did it with no problems.

falldown3 05-13-2010 01:37 AM

Dam u guys r lucky... Im pretty good at halo, but it always lags out near the very end! We had over 30 lives its just the shitty firefight servers.... Do u guys think if i wait until hardly no one plays it will be better?
