Mission 6 Campaign Glitch - Complete in 5-6 minutes Solo Legendary
 
I will never figure out how people manage to do stuff like this. Guess "Shutdown" will be the "Nightfall" of Halo 4.

Helpful to those struggling with their solo legendary playthrough. Be sure to check out some of Nak3dHalo's other campaign speedruns.

I'm never surprised with stuff like this, but this is awesome.

fhw4979 11-13-2012 02:35 AM

cool. Wonder how long it will be around before patchville

Crims0nPenguin 11-13-2012 02:37 AM

Wow would have saved me a lot of time and frustration... Sucks I find out about it now

BiggD 11-13-2012 02:39 AM

Dude. This video is golden. As much as I hate doing speedruns on my first run of the level on Solo Legendary...I must...do this.

KingBroly 11-13-2012 02:47 AM

It took me 12-15 minutes to do with a few deaths, but it was worth it. Otherwise I would've spent over an hour on it. That level sucks.

Agreed. The gondola portions of my solo heroic playthrough were so frustrating. I had to do a bit of backtracking up and down the stuctures to look for a weapon that wasn't a Suppresor or Boltshot. Wasted so much time with this mission.

That guy has a severe case of OCD.

Shadden 11-13-2012 02:55 AM

Damn I skipped the banshee part too but never knew about skipping the 2 towers parts. That mission is a pain on Legendary lol.

Nevander 11-13-2012 02:55 AM

I am so doing this in a little while.

IDK hard to say. It may not even get patched because the Nightfall glitch never got patched and this is Bungie we're talking about. :p

Once again.....Bungie did NOT make this game.

*Ahem* You misread my post.

I was speaking of how Bungie never patched the Nightfall skip, not that Bungie made Halo 4 and will or will not patch this one.

Guy Who Rages 11-13-2012 04:04 AM

Just did this. Was dreading having to go through the gondolas on Legendary solo, but not anymore. Now I just need a buddy to do it again in co-op. :woop:

Hybridchld 11-13-2012 04:59 AM

Nice one!

Was just about to start this level when I saw this thread

First of all, you said 'IS' Bungie, you didn't refer to them in the past tense. Second, if you were talking about before and not now, then that makes no sense at all. What does Bungie not patching something in the past have anything to do with 343 patching something in the future??

Capped and bolded for your convenience.

Same story here man :( I'm definitely doing to try this out tomorrow when I get home from work. I wanted to do Solo Legendary in order, but looks like I'll have to skip around now.

Mr Chaotix 11-13-2012 05:23 AM

Pretty cool and seems simple enough, though, it'll still probably take me around 20-30 minutes :P
Thanks for sharing.

All I'm saying is if Bungie never bothered to patch something like the Nightfall skip, then why should 343 patch this one? Why would the creators of Halo not patch a skip in their game and 343 patch one in theirs.

Just seems highly unlikely to me that this would be patched considering Bungie's lack of patch.

Mongolian Beef 11-13-2012 07:13 AM

Awesome! too bad I already beat it.

Uh, dude. He was referencing the fact that Bungie is known for being patch-happy and even they didn't patch Nightfall in Halo: Reach-- no where did he imply or insinuate that Bungie developed Halo 4.

theNomad 11-13-2012 09:02 AM

Cool it'll be the new nightfall, a great speedrun to do to complete challenges quick.

bloodstainedwings 11-13-2012 09:29 AM

I beat this game on Legendary and this was one of the hardest lvl's in the game for me, but I did it legit. I did use the banshie the same way this video did, but that's not as bad as skipping both towers.

I will admit there were a few times I got a way with running to a check point and sidestepping battles, but never as bad as this.

I am a little mad about this, but I will also admit if I found out about this while on the lvl I would have done it myself.

I am happy I ended up beating the game without glitches because it feels a lot more rewarding. Legendary was hard for me at parts of the game, so beating this game on Legendary has been one of the most rewarding video game experiences of my life.

PS
This is also the first time I played a Halo game on Legendary from the get go, without playing Heroic first.

Thanks for this, worked like a charm. 10 mins later and now I only have Composer to do.

Tsaako 11-13-2012 04:50 PM

Going to try this in a bit, glad someone found this, I couldn't imagine the frustration people have gone through doing this mission legit.

XperimntNterror 11-13-2012 04:54 PM

Whether or not this gets a patch is dependent upon how 343 output their code to content files. If files are exported "loose", then they COULD patch it (it would be relative to the number of files touched to correct it; probably an executable patch, if anything, but that's probably not something that they would be interested is messing with, post-launch), but if they are output in a large archive, they wouldn't be able to patch the SP, since, even a minor code change, would require the patch to be a download of the entire game; MS has a 5MB limit for TUs.

In all likelihood, they won't patch this.

Infernal 11-13-2012 05:53 PM

Awesome post! thank you!

Yannie Boy 11-13-2012 06:01 PM

Where is the glitch? It's more of skipping steps. Easily patchable to where you can't open the door until you complete A,B,C.

RBmaster9345 11-13-2012 06:02 PM

I didnt think this mission was all that hard solo Legendary but this is a great trick

It's not, really. Just very tedious.

Regardless of our vocabulary skills, I think we can mutually agree that this maneuver saves time and effort for those struggling to complete "Shutdown."
