This is my first Achievement Guide and Road Map to 1000. I hope you all like it, and I hope it provides you with enough help to get all the achievements. I want to give a huge thanks to my friend known as Ghost Slayer. He contributed a lot to this Guide and Road Map. I also want to thank SetsunaFSeiei for the awesome Halo 3: ODST Achievement Guide Banner. Now to all of you who have been waiting . . . Prepare to Drop!

Halo 3: ODST Road Map to 1000

Overview:
-Estimated achievement difficulty: 6/10
-Offline: 44 = 925/1000
-Online: 3 = 75/1000
-Approximate amount of time to get 1000/1000: 12-22 hours
-Minimum number of play throughs needed: 1
-Number of missable achievements: 1
-Glitched achievements: 0
-Do cheat codes disable achievements?: No cheats
-Does difficulty affect achievements?: Yes

Introduction:
Halo 3: ODST has 925 that can be obtained offline (or online) and 75 that must be online to obtain (The 3 Vidmaster Challenge Achievements). The achievement that is missable is Good Samaritan. If you kill even one Engineer, you cannot obtain this and you will need to go through an entire new Campaign. The achievement that is opposite of this one (Naughty Naughty) can be obtain after you complete the game, without going through the entire campaign again (see achievement or mop-up for more details). There is another exception of missing an achievement, and this is if you do Co-op. Wraith Killer can only be obtained by one person, therefore if you are doing co-op, only one person can obtain this; you can replay the mission again after the player gets the achievement.

1st Play through:
To get all the achievements for Campaign you must play on Legendary (Difficulty Achievements are Stackable). The campaign is fairly easy but some parts are hard. I recommend doing it on co-op with 1 to 3 other people as this will make it easier. Remember to stay in cover when going red so you can recharge your Stamina (shields). Keep in mind where health packs/stations are so you can heal when injured (there will be an annoying constant beep telling you that you need health). Take your time because rushing doesn’t always work on the higher difficulties (use the advantage of surprise, since they added some stealth). The campaign takes about 7-9 hours long if you play through it normally, and don‘t go for the Audio logs. It is advised to not go for any Audio logs until you finish the campaign. This way you can load up Mombasa Streets and go for them all with undivided attention.

Mop-up (Campaign):
Now you will need to do Vidmaster Challenge: Déjà vu, Vidmaster Challenge: Classic and Headcase. If you missed any of the Mission Kill Achievements, Audio Files, or the achievement Naughty Naughty, then you can replay a mission, or the mission specifically for the achievement. For Audio Files and Naughty Naughty you can load up Mombasa Streets and go solely for those two achievements (Recommended to go for After you Complete the Campaign). For the Vidmaster Challenge achievements look at the guide below.

Firefight:
Now that you have completed the campaign unlocking all the firefight stages, you can start to go for these achievements. To obtain them all, you need to do get 200,000 points on each of the 8 stages. There are 10 stages but 2 of them don’t require you to get achievements. To get 200,000 points in each Stage easily, play 2-4 player Co-op. The higher the difficulty, the more points you will receive when you kill an enemy, receive a medal, etc. On Easy you start out with 1.3x (Difficulty Multiplier: 0.25x) on the first wave. On Legendary you start out with 4.5x (Difficulty Multiplier: 4x) on the first wave. The Multiplier goes up as you complete rounds/sets, but on the negative, skulls will be added as you complete rounds/sets.. You will get the achievement once the OVERALL score reaches 200,000. Each individual DOES NOT have to get 200,000 solely. The entire score of all players contribute to the achievement. Now there are two achievements in Firefight that don‘t concern Score. The achievement 'Be Like Marty' requires you to play a full round without killing a single enemy. To do this you must do 2-4 player Co-op (you can even plug in an extra controller and play as the Guest). Just hide and let your partner(s) get all the kills and you will get the achievement after one round (There are 5 waves in 1 round). Once the Round is over the achievement will pop up. For Vidmaster Challenge: Endure, you must pass Set 4 on 4 player LIVE Co-op on the difficulty Heroic. For tips, please read the achievement posted in the Guide.

Halo 3: ODST Achievement Guide

Kizingo Boulevard-30
Completed Kizingo Blvd. on Normal, Heroic or Legendary and unlocked the Mickey character in Firefight.

ONI Alpha Site-30
Completed ONI Alpha Site on Normal, Heroic or Legendary and unlocked the Alpha Site Firefight mission.

You must play on Normal, Heroic or Legendary. You get all these from story progression; you can not miss them (you can only miss them if you play easy).

Campaign Complete: Normal-100
Completed the Campaign on Normal difficulty.

See "Campaign Complete: Legendary"

Campaign Complete: Heroic-100
Completed the Campaign on Heroic difficulty.

See "Campaign Complete: Legendary"

Campaign Complete: Legendary-100
Completed the Campaign on Legendary and unlocked the Dare character in Firefight.

Note: Difficulty Achievements are Stackable.

I would recommend doing your first playthrough on Legendary. Playing with a Co-op partner would be beneficial and Legendary on Co-op is easier than Halo 3.

Junior Detective-10
Found the first clue unravelling the mystery.

Note: I have been told by several people that the clue achievements did not unlock until they pressed and checked their Intel. People have been saying the Clue achievements are glitched but this is not the case. You simply have to play through the campaign in one play through. You can not replay a mission, change difficulty, nor join another person's game; this will disable the achievement if you do so.

You will obtain this as you start the Mission BUCK: Tayari Plaza. You cannot miss this achievement.

Gumshoe-10
Found the 3rd clue unravelling the mystery, alone or with another ODST.

You will obtain this as you start the Mission MICKEY: Kizingo Boulevard. You cannot miss this achievement.

Super Sleuth-10
Found the final clue unravelling the mystery, alone or with another ODST.

You will obtain this as you start the Mission BUCK: Kikowani Station. You cannot miss this achievement.

Heal Up-5
Found the first Medical Kiosk and healed yourself.

You get this in the first mission: Prepare to Drop (aka The Rookie: Occupied City Center) during the tutorials. You have to find your first Medical Kiosk. There are multiple Medical Kiosk throughout the level.

Tourist -5
Accessed and downloaded the city map to your VISR.

You get this in the first mission during the tutorials. Once you start your VISR Nav Data Tutorial, this will unlock. Unfortunately you can't skip the tutorial after you get the achievement.

Headcase-5
Finished any level with at least one Skull activated.

You must activate any skull and complete a mission; you can play on any difficulty. Play with the Skull: Birthday Grunt or IWBYD (Yes secondary skulls work) activated. Just activate this on the first level 'Tayari Plaza' or any level you desire.

Trading Down-5
Traded weapons with a fellow character

Go up to a CPU teammate with a different weapon and press . The first time you meet an Ally CPU where you can trade weapons is in the Mission BUCK: Tayari Plaza. The 2 Allies are near the beginning of the level after you defeat the first group of enemies.

Vidmaster Challenge Achievements

Note: You must be Connected to Live to get these achievements.

Vidmaster Challenge: Endure-25

In Firefight, on any mission, passed the 4th Set on 4-player Heroic LIVE co-op

I would recommend the level Alpha Site. It took me and my friends 124 mins to achieve; at the end we had about 20 lives left. Just make sure you stay back and use Plasma pistols and Automags for quick kills. Also use the rocket on Cheifstans and in the bonus round. If you aim above the elevators and shoot as the grunts come out you will easily get the bonus lives. Click HERE and look at Vendetta's Tips on Endure.


Vidmaster Challenge: Classic-25
Finished any level solo on Legendary, on LIVE, with no shots fired or grenades thrown.

For this achievement do the level 'Uplift Reserve'. You can drive pass all the enimies and straight to the end of the level. You can use Ghosts, Choppers, and Warthogs. I can confirm that you can splatter enemies, and have a passenger and Turret operator firing at enemies. This will NOT disable the achievement. What will disable the achievement is if you press . Even if you are in the warthog, you are not allowed to use the Horn. And it goes without saying that you can't fire or throw grenades.

In the beginning flip the warthog straight ahead of you and get into it. Drive counter clock-wise around the rock and once you jump off the edge continue straight. You will come to a narrow pathway where wraiths, ghosts and choppers will come up. Simply stick to the right and pass them. Once you pass them there will be a Ghost on the rock. It is up to you to use it. Drive out the tunnel and go to the left. Once you see the pond drive to your right. Get out of the vehicle and climb up the rocks (this is to avoid those turrets further up ahead). There will be a ghost waiting for you. The rest of the level is easy and needs no further explanation; use youtube if you need to.

Vidmaster Challenge: Déjà vu-25
Completed Highway on 4-player Legendary LIVE co-op, with Iron, and no Hog or Scorpion.

You must be on legendary and have Iron on for the Rockets/Mongooses to spawn. First you must defeat the enemies in the beginning of the level and then go to the elevator. Once you are on the Highway walk straight and you will eventually find a tunnel which leads you underground. Go inside and you will find 2 Mongooses and 4 rockets each with 1000 shots. (Thanks to icypinksmurf). Now all you do is drive and use the Mongooses and rockets to protect the Elephant and kill all the enimies. You can also board a ghost and use it. Once you get to the end of the level and you must repel the attack, you can keep using the rockets and there are also 2 turrets at the top in the back of the level. This may take a few tries but it shouldn't be too time consuming.


Video For Rockets/Mongooses (Thanks to porkchop547)

Mission Kill Achievements:

Note: There is an Achievement Tracker for the Achievements with 'Kills' in them and you can only obtain the 'Mission Kill' Achievements on the level which is stated in the description.

Wraith Killer-5
Killed all Wraiths in Uplift Reserve

There are 6 wraiths in the level and you must kill all 6. If you are doing this in co-op, only one person can obtain this achievement. Player 1 (Host) starts with a Spartan Laser; use this to kill 5 of them, and then board and throw a grenade inside on the last one (or you can choose a different method).

Both Tubes-5
Got 10 Rocket kills on Kizingo Boulevard.

Note: Melee Kills with the Rocket Launcher will not count towards the achievement.

You start off with 2 rockets on this level. If you are doing Co-op, your partner will also start with 2 rockets. It is recommended to go for this achievement with at least 2 people. Take the extra Ammo from your partner(s) if you have any partners. Another way to get extra ammo is when you have 1 shot left, trade weapons with a team mate and then kill him. Pick up the rocket launcher and there should be extra ammo. (Thanks to el panel0n) When you begin the level there will be Columns with some orange lights. Continue to the next area with Columns and Orange lights (only a 10 second walk). To the left a bunch of grunts, some jackals, and a few brutes will appear. Pick a spot where they're all bunched up and shoot a rocket (You can easily get 3-6 kills in one shot). Use the rest of your rockets wisely and shoot at clusters of enemies (if you react quickly, shoot another well placed shot. There will still be quite a few enemies left grouped together).

An alternative method is to Drive the tank and have allies sit on the side and kill enimies with Rockets. This will count towards the achievement. (Thanks to Toasty411)

Laser Blaster-5
Got 10 Spartan Laser kills on ONI Alpha Site.

You can easily get this as there are several Spartan Lasers throughout the level. But at the beginning only player 1 starts off with it on co-op. Straight ahead of you will be a wraith and lots of enemies. Aim towards the wraith and try to line up as many enemies as possible in your line of fire. You can easily get 2-5 kills (or more) in one shot and you have 5 shots in total.

Dome Inspector-5
Got 15 headshot kills on NMPD HQ.

Obtain 15 headshots with any weapon that can get a headshot: Automag, Carbine and Sniper. Just simply use the Automag and headshot Grunts, Jackals, and Brutes with no Shields. You will get this in no time.

I Like Fire-5
Killed 10 enemies with the Flamethrower on Data Hive.

The Flamethrower is located after the 2nd drop near the area that is frozen. It is behind a glass-like wall in a corner.


Click HERE for a Video


(Thanks to Kaneda_Mishima for the Simple picture=p)

Good Samaritan-20
Killed no Engineers in the city at night during entire campaign, alone or with another ODST.

To do this you cannot kill any Engineers (they float in the sky and give over shields to their allies). If you kill one (shown by achievement tracker) reload checkpoint/kill yourself. You will get this when you Start the Mission: Data Hive (the first mission which isn't a flashback mission).

Naughty Naughty-5
Killed 10 Engineers in the city at night, alone or with another ODST.

Simply kill 10 engineers before you Start the Mission: Data Hive (the first mission which isn't a flashback mission). If you shoot them and they self-destruct they will count towards the achievement (I recommend charging a plasma pistol and shooting them). The Achievement tracker will tell you if it counts. Recommended to go for on second playthrough, or after you complete the game you can reload the Mission: Mombasa Streets. Search all the Sectors for them and eventually you will find them. If you can't find enough, they will eventually respawn (sometimes) if you aren't in the area. If you are still having trouble finding some, and it seems to take too long to walk around the city, then go to the Supply Cache (Green Circle). What is at the Supply Cache might you ask? Only two beautiful Mongooses.

Kill Achievements:

Note: There is an Achievement Tracker for the Achievements with 'Kills' in them and you can obtain these achievements in any Campaign level or Firefight level.

Boom, Headshot-5
Got 10 automag headshot kills in any level.

Get 10 automag headshots. The automag is the pistol you start out with. You can obtain this in the very first Mission: Prepared to Drop (aka The Rookie: Occupied City Center) if you want to. Grunts and Jackals take 1 head shot to kill (on any difficulty). Brutes also take 1 head shot if you take off their shields.

Stunning!-5
Stunned a vehicle with an overcharged plasma pistol and quickly killed the driver.

Simply get a plasma pistol, charge plasma pistol and shoot the enemy vehicle, then switch to secoundary gun (Automag is recommend; go for head shot) and kill them. (Your teammate can shoot the plasma pistol and you can finish them off, or vice-versa). Uplift Reserve have lots of vehicles so I’d recommend doing it there. You will see many enemy vehicles throughout the game

Ewww, Sticky-5
Got 5 sticky grenade kills in any level.

Sticky grenade 5 enemies. You can use Plasma grenades or Spike Grenades. You will find many grenades in a mission, so you can choose what ever level you want to.

Dark Times-5
Killed 5 enemies while using VISR mode.

Simply press and go into VISR mode and kill 5 enemies. You can easily obtain this in the first Mission: Prepare to Drop (aka The Rookie: Occupied City Center).

My Clothes!-5
Plasma Pistol Overcharged and quickly killed 10 Brutes.

Preferred Method: Plasma Pistol a Brute or a Jackal with a shield and switch to the Automag and kill them (go for head shots; it takes only 1 head shot). Your teammate can shoot the plasma pistol and you can finish them off or vice-versa. Remember you must kill them quickly.

Alternative Method: Plasama Pistol a Brute or a Jackal with a Shield (make sure you are only a few feet away from them) and then Melee them. You will have to Melee the Brute several times which may take too long, and there is also the factor of being killed/injured more easily since you are in the center of the battle.

Pink and Deadly-5
Got 10 Needler supercombine kills on any covenant.

Supercombine kills are when you unload enough needles for them to explode and kill them. Simply do this to 10 enemies. I would recommend the Mission: Tayari Plaza, Data Hive or Uplift Reserve as they have vast ammount of needler ammo.

FireFight Achievements:

Firefight: Crater-10
Scored over 200,000 points in Firefight on Crater.

See "Last Exit"

Firefight: Lost Platoon-10
Scored over 200,000 points in Firefight on Lost Platoon.

See "Last Exit"

Firefight: Rally Point-10
Scored over 200,000 points in Firefight on Rally Point.

See "Last Exit"

Firefight: Security Zone-10
Scored over 200,000 points in Firefight on Security Zone.

See "Last Exit"

Firefight: Alpha Site-10
Scored over 200,000 points in Firefight on Alpha Site.

See "Last Exit"

Firefight: Windward-10
Scored over 200,000 points in Firefight on Windward.

See "Last Exit"

Firefight: Chasm Ten-10
Scored over 200,000 points in Firefight on Chasm Ten.

See "Last Exit"

Firefight: Last Exit-10
Scored over 200,000 points in Firefight on Last Exit.

All you have to do is score 200,000 points in firefight. In co-op the total of all the players scores counts to the achievements. It is recommended to do 4 player co-op to get points faster. You can easily achieve 200,000 points in 1-2 hours with 2 player Co-op on Easy. If you have 4 players, I would recommend doing normal; you can get 200,000 points on normal 4 player Co-op in 40 mins - 1 hour and 20 mins. If you have 4 skilled players, you can do Heroic; it will take 30-50 mins depending on the level.



Information on Firefight:
  • There are 5 Waves in a Round, and 3 Rounds in a Set. At the end of every Set, there is a bonus Round which turns on all the skulls (giving you a higher multiplier and extra lives if you obtain the minimum ammount of points specified) which lasts for 60 seconds. If you die, your lives will not be reduced.
  • There are 4 difficulty multipliers. Easy = 0.25x; Normal = 1x; Heroic = 2x; Legendary = 4x
  • Obtaining Medals give you extra score. (Ex: Killing Frenzy, Double Kill, Beat Down, Head shots, etc.)
  • There is a time limit but it is not shown. When there is 5 mins remaining, it will notify you. There is a time limit for every round.
  • There are skulls activated in Firefight. Starting on the first set, you will have one skull activated. As the rounds get higher more skulls will activate. On set 2 the skulls will reset and this time you will start with 2 skulls, and so on (3rd set starts with 3 skulls).
  • The Skulls which are acitvated during Firefight are: Iron, Black Eye, Tough Luck, Catch, Famine, Tilt, Mythic.
  • If you play solo, every round that you beat you will gain 1 extra life. 2 player Co-op = 2 lives per round; 3 player Co-op = 3 lives per round; 4 player Co-op = 4 lives per round.
Be Like Marty-10
In Firefight, finished a full round without killing a single enemy.


To do this you CANNOT kill anyone untill all 5 waves are over and the 2nd round starts. The achievement will pop-up as Round 2 begins. If you haven't already guessed, this means you need a Co-op partner to kill all the enemies for you. Recommended on easy.

I can confirm that you get 3 lives for 3 people playing and 4 for 4 people playing

A friend and I did this on Easy and it took us 2 hours. You have 4 sets of 3 rounds and in those rounds you have 5 waves. It's easily done if you have a couple hours to spare on this. It gives you the achievement right when you get over 200,000 so you don't have to finish it out if you don't want to.

Just tried to get this one on the reserve level. Had my partner who wanted the achievement drive the warthog while I used the turret. He did not get it at the start of Rd.2. So driving a vehicle will not work, you must stay put in a corner somewhere. Just in case anybody was thinking of trying that. Hopefully that info can save some people a good 20 minutes of time.

Vidmaster Challenge: Endure-25

In Firefight, on any mission, passed the 4th Set on 4-player Heroic LIVE co-op


I may as well add my two cents for this achievement. In my opinion it would probably be easiest to do this achievement on the Lost Platoon level.

When you start off do the usual stuff, 2 guys in the hog and one with the laser, etc. After the first set when the Tilt skull is activated drive the warthog up the middle staircase and park it horizontally in the dead centre (or close to it) and make sure you can walk past either side.

Next you need to find 2 brute choppers. However my now you should easily have 1 or 2 lying around somewhere. It would probably be best to store them upstairs if you're not using them (and their not destroyed). Basically as soon as you get one that you're not using drive it into one of the stairwells that lead to the upstairs area. And when you get a second, place it in the other stairwell.

With all 3 points of entry blocked, enemies can't/won't come up, they'll either hang around the bottom or around the vehicle. The only real problems you have to deal with after that is ammo (although I'm sure you could find areas to just down and get weapons safely), wraiths (only if you don't have the laser or you wasted it), drones, grenades. But make sure you don't fight around the vehicles or use explosives nearby, if you do you may accidentally destroy a vehicle and give enemies access to the upstair area.

Hell if possible you could also have a chopper or 2 upstairs shooting enemies or roaming the outskirts taking potshots from a distance.

But if you wanna do it on another level then do it on Alpha site just like the "How to unlock recon" guide says. There isn't any wraiths and there is only 2 entry points they the enemies can go through.

So yeah, hope this helps.

I was playing offline with one friend on Easy and we got to 200,000 in about 2 hours. The achievement didn't unlock. What's the deal?

It's pretty much a given that Achievement Guides are going to have spoilers.

For this achievement do the level 'Uplift Reserve'. You can drive pass all the enimies and straight to the end of the level. You can use Ghosts, Choppers, and Warthogs. I can confirm that you can splatter enemies, and have a passenger and Turret operator firing at enemies. This will NOT disable the achievement. What will disable the achievement is if you press . Even if you are in the warthog, you are not allowed to use the Horn. And it goes without saying that you can't fire or throw grenades.

I had a bit trouble with this one... I give one tip Don't sound the horn of the warthog it blocked me from getting my achievement XD

Got 10 Rocket kills on Kizingo Boulevard.

Note: Melee Kills with the Rocket Launcher will not count towards the achievement.

An easy way to do this by yourself is to save the 2 rockets until you are at the very last square of the mission. A number of waves of small enemies will be dropped off. They will move into position as a group and with 1 rocket you can easily get 5 or 6 of them. As there will be a few waves you should be able to find 2 groups of enemies to use the 2 rockets on.
Worked in 1 try for me and it is even easier if you play the the mission on the easy difficulty.

Seriously this is hard. The best I can do is flip the warthog, drive past the first tank and ghost before the chopper that follows them blows the warthog up lol. Any tips?

Thanks in advance.

About the Super Sleuth achievement, the first time I completed the campaign it did not unlock. However it did come the second time through (coop on legendary).

Nice guide.

I found another way to get more rockets on Kizingo Blvd. Just to the right of the first area you suggest to shoot, on the roof of the building is a marine with a rocket launcher. Shoot her and it will fall to the ground, and has 4 rockets in it.

You start off with 2 rockets on this level. If you are doing Co-op, your partner will also start with 2 rockets. It is recommended to go for this achievement with at least 2 people. Take the extra Ammo from your partner(s) if you have any partners. Another way to get extra ammo is when you have 1 shot left, trade weapons with a team mate and then kill him. Pick up the rocket launcher and there should be extra ammo. (Thanks to el panel0n) When you begin the level there will be Columns with some orange lights. Continue to the next area with Columns and Orange lights (only a 10 second walk). To the left a bunch of grunts, some jackals, and a few brutes will appear. Pick a spot where they're all bunched up and shoot a rocket (You can easily get 3-6 kills in one shot). Use the rest of your rockets wisely and shoot at clusters of enemies (if you react quickly, shoot another well placed shot. There will still be quite a few enemies left grouped together).

An alternative method is to Drive the tank and have allies sit on the side and kill enimies with Rockets. This will count towards the achievement. (Thanks to Toasty411)
Umm.. there are like 50 rockets in the actual Kizingo Boulevard area. Once you get to the door that says Kizingo Boulevard, go straight ahead and you'll see a building that you can go into. There is one area with a dead guy that has a Rocket Launcher you can pick up and also another area (at the very top) that has another Rocket Launcher as well as a Sniper Rifle.

I like how Venomized is now a banned member for writing up a guide before the release date! And maybe because he is Canadian too. O forums and your silly rules.

It might be worth mentioning since some people are having problems with these popping at times to Press the Back button to check your Intel at the beginning of each mission
