The Official I'm Stuck/Achievement Questions Thread

Ask any and all questions here. I will post repeated asked questions in this post as well as the next one which I will reserve to do so.

I have all 1000 in the game and will be willing to answer your guys' questions here. Also to unlock recon please view my FAQ that is stickied at the top of the forum as well.

This is not to be posted anywhere but X360A else without my permission.

General ODST Questions:

Q: How do we get the Halo: Reach beta?
A: First off it is not out yet/live so this is probably TBD at a later date. I will do some research and post back.

Q: Is it better to install the game on the harddrive?
A: No because it will cause lagg at co-op.

Q: Are there avatar awards for ODST?
A: As of the release date 9/22/09 there are no avatar awards yet. Hopefully Microsoft decides to make this the first retail game with them.

Q: What is the deal with the 2nd disc with Halo ODST?
A: It essentially replaces your Halo 3 Disc for online play. However if you want to play campaign you will need to use your copy of Halo 3 to do that.

Q: Can I install the maps from the 2nd disc?
A: No you cannot. You must play off the disc to play all the maps.

Q: Can you unlock older matchmaking related achievements playing the 2nd ODST disc?
A: Yes you can. My friend confirmed this for me by getting a few earlier today.

Q: Do I need find the skulls from Halo 3 to be able to use them in ODST?
A: No they are unlocked for everyone in ODST by default.

Q: How Do I unlock Recon? I have all vidmaster achievements and I dont have it WTF???
A: See my FAQ On how to unlock it! There is more than just getting the achievements to get it. You have to do something else!! CLICK ME For Recon Guide!!


Mission Questions:
Q: Can I do the missions in any order?
A: Yes you can in any order you so please with the exception of Data Hive & Coastal Highway those are the last 2 missions.

Q: After completing the campaign can I free roam to finish up my achievements?
A: Yes and No because while there is no free roam after the completing the game you can always go to restart mission and choose any mission or the streets of Mombasa.

Q: How do I start missions?
A: Pull up your map with the (back button) and there will be a beacon thing eminating frmo the map in said area. When you are there you should already be in VISR mode (if you are not press to engage it). The item/artifact you need to start the mission should be surrounded in a bright yellow. Go up and hold the to start the misssion.

Q: What is the item to start this mission?
A: This is a work in progress unless others can help me out. I am at work right now and cannot remember everything off the top of my head.

NMPD HQ - a sniper rifle bent and hanging off of a power line. You can start this one by jumping on the truck right in front and holding the to start it.

Tayari Plaza - Helmet is in a building. You must go up the stairs in the building to the top floor. The helmet shattered a monitor.

Kizingo Blvd - A Gauss Turret is located above the building in the beacon area. Go into the building and up the stairs to the top floor. Go out the door and there is the turret.

ONI Alpha Site - A Remote detonator is at the end of the crumbled bridge in the beacon area. (Thanks to Cobbicus Prime)

Uplift Reserve -

Kikowani Station -

Data Hive & Coastal Highway - Unlocked upon completing all the above missions. Data hive is 2nd to last and Coastal is the last mission.

Q: How do I unlock the data hive & highway missions?
A: You have to finish the other levels in the game first. Then you will be stuck in an area of the map and you will need to find the beacon and you will start Data Hive. Upon completion of Data Hive the Highway Mission will start.


Achievement Questions
Q: My achievement is glitched! It is glitched! Help!?!
A: None of the achievements are glitched. I attained a full 1K on the game and had no problems what so ever. You are doing something wrong.

Q: How do you kill the engineers? I unloaded on them and killed them and I swear I am not a noob!
A: It is really easy to kill them actually. When they are around a group of brutes it makes the brutes harder to kill. So you need to either hit the engineer with a fully charged plasma pistol blast followed by a sniper or unloading SMG or pistol on him. Either that or you can stick it with a plasma grenade or a spike grenade.

Q: For The Good Samaritan achievement can you do this on co-op?
A: Yes you can just make sure your teammates do not deal any sort of damage to the engineer. You can kill the brutes, jackals, and grunts by it though. I know you can still get the achievement after it blows up because my friend was going for it first and one blew up but the counter for killing 10 did not go up. He still got the achievement after we finished up.

Q: Is the Naughty Naughty achievement combined with everyone in co-op?
A: No it is not combined with everyone. For some reason it is individual. When my friends and I went for it (we were all sitting in the same room playing) I killed one and the achievement progress window popped up for me but not them. This is better suited for a solo quick run to get.

Q: Why is that everytime I restart a mission from the main menu that it resets my campaign progress on co-op and solo?
A: I have no idea why bungie would do something like this. If you need to reload a mission to get an achievement just reload it after you complete the campaign that way you dont have to replay everything.

Q: I cannot get Deja Vu Vidmaster Achievement. It wont unlock please help me!
A: You cannot even get in the tank or the warthog in this map. You can get in the both the mongoose and the ghost and fire and use it to splatter. You can also die as many times as you have to do beat it. Just double check and make sure your difficulty is on Legendary and you have 4 players and it is on Highway.

Q: Help with Classic Vidmaster Achievement.
A: (Taken from my Recon Armor Guide)
Like the achievement guide says do this on Uplift Reserve. At the beginning flip the hog over and dodge and evade as much as possible. After you get to a point where a ghost is get in there. You can boost and splatter people and still get the achievement just make sure you never hit the right trigger. I was messing around pulling the trigger with the laser and did not get the achievement so I had to start over.

Q: Help with Endure Vidmaster Achievement. Won't unlock!
A: Make sure you are on Heroic difficulty and have 4 players. The achievement will unlock once the 5th set starts.

Q: My combat achievements wont carry over. Why can't I get my achievements?
A: Combat achievements like the 5 VISR kills, Pink Mist, etc... reset whenever you start a new mission. You need to get the achievement in a mission or in the map area where you can free roam. There is no way around this. You can also acquire these in Firefight mode.

Q: The Engineer blew up after I killed the enemies around him will I still get my achievement for not killing any?
A: Yes you can still get it as long as you did not shoot the engineer or damage him in any way with splash damage from rockets or a grenade. I tested this one out myself and it popped up as me killing the engineer due to my stick grenade that I used to stick a brute with.

Audio Log Questions:
Q: Why do my audio logs reset whenever I start a new campaign?
A: They will save on solo play as long as you dont start a new campaign. For co-op campaign you must get all the logs in one playthrough. It will save your progress when you quit but not if you start a new one with other people. I found this out the hard way and it created one extra playthrough.

Q: How can I check to see how many audiologs I have?
A: The only time you can check to see how many you have is when you pick one up. There will be a little achievement status square thingy that pops up and says 6/30 audio logs for example. There is no option in the menu or pause menu that will tell you. This makes this achievement a bit of a pain in the arse if you are not keeping track. Unfortunately you either have to go in numerical order like the map for the audio logs says to or you have to keep track yourself.

Q: Where can I find this audio log.
A: See the map here CLICK

Q: Do I get the audio log #30 first?
A: No you do not. That is the 2nd to last mission.

Q: I have finished all the missions on the free roam map and cannot get out of the area I am in to get the rest of the audio logs.
A: Sorry to say but you have to play again to get all the logs. You must get 29 logs before finishing the last mission that is on the map because it will trigger a part where you have to go underground to get to the last missions.

Questions Regarding Firefight (Including SGT Johnson)


Unlockables:

Q: Where can I get SGT Johnson is he on the Marketplace?
A: No he was a pre-order exclusive at various retailers (Gamestop, Best Buy) and is currently not available to buy on the marketplace. This may or may not change. It is all up to Microsoft. He came on a little card that has a redemption code.

Q: Can I redeem the SGT Johnson Code More than Once?
A: No you cannot the code is for one time download only. After you download him you can use him as much as you please. I used him last night

Q: What are the unlockables?
A: Here is a list for you

Tayari Plaza unlocks Buck
Uplift Reserve unlocks Dutch
Kizingo Blvd unlocks Mickey
NMPD HQ unlocks Romeo
Beating Campaign on Legendary unlocks Dare

Data Hive Completion = Chasam 10 Firefight Map
ONI Alpha Site = Alpha Site map
Coastal Highway = Last Exit

Q: How many sets/rounds/waves must I beat to get Vidmaster: Endure?
A: Each Set is comprised of 3 rounds of 5 waves each. You have to beat 4 sets to get the achievement so a little math here... 4 sets x 3 rounds x 5 waves = 60 waves of Covenant.

Q: How do I unlock the rest of the maps for firefight?
A: You can unlock the maps by completing the rest of the game. Before going for your 200,000 pts on firefight please beat campaign first so you can have all the maps.

Q: For the 200,000 pt achievements can I do them on the night versions of the maps?
A: Yes you can

Q: For the 200K pt achievements can I do them with less than 4 people?
A: You can do them solo, with 2,3,4 people. Whatever floats your boat

Nice And it might be a stupid question but I can't find the item at the IMPO HQ Beacon...it's very annoying=\ Can you tell me where it is?

Edit: 1 more thing to add:

Q: Is it better to install the game on the harddrive?
A: No because it will cause lagg at co-op.

I had this and when I deleted the game from the harddrive it went with less lagg. Installed I lagged the full game (while I have good internet)

you mean the NMPD beacon? that one is a sniper rifle dangling from a power line. jump on the truck right in front of it and you will be able to hit to start it

also to the person asking about multiplayer achievements... yes you can. my buddy confirmed it with me that he unlocked a couple today with that disc. I will add both these questions to the FAQ

I am going to add what the beacon/item thingy looks like for each mission but I cannot do that till I get home since I am at work now (it is a slow day).

Not my question, as I have them, but a few people have asked...

Q: Can Halo 3 multiplayer achievements be unlocked through the Halo 3: ODST second disc?

Not sure if anyone has a definite answer yet...

the only way to re-download it might be from xbox.com through your download history. that is the only way I can think of re-downloading him.

For the Oni mission, you can find a remote detonator close tot he end of the crumbled bridge. That activates the mission.

What's the easiest way to find 10 enemies to kill with the rocket launcher on Kizingo Blvd? Since you only get 2 rockets.

Betray a marine carrying a rocket launcher or trade weapons with one after you drop the rocker launcher.

engineers

You can get the good samaritain achievement in co-op whether or not the others kill them, and even if YOU shoot at them. As long as you don't actually kill them and get the "naughty-naughty" counter. Your co-op buddy and you can get both the achievements in the same play through. Restart campaign and swap roles to get the other one... works great. BTW these will unlock at beginning of data hive mission if you did it correctly.

There are more rockets near where the tank comes for you to drive (not sure exactly). The video guide that's posted shows exactly where. The key being to kill the Grunts and Jackals when they are grouped together. If you get the other rockets, you get six shots, so double-kills will work. You just need to be quick as you allies will kill the weaker enemies before you can rocket them.

Achievement Questions
Q: My achievement is glitched! It is glitched! Help!?!
A: None of the achievements are glitched. I attained a full 1K on the game and had no problems what so ever. You are doing something wrong.

It seems some people can't get the Clue achievements. But that is probably because of switching levels, etc. Not sure if that counts as glitched.

Q: I cannot get Deja Vu Vidmaster Achievement. It wont unlock please help me!
A: You cannot even get in the tank or the warthog in this map. You can get in the both the mongoose and the ghost and fire and use it to splatter. You can also die as many times as you have to do beat it. Just double check and make sure your difficulty is on Legendary and you have 4 players and it is on Highway.

Kind of obvious, but you must have Iron on too =p. You said everything else that is obvious . . so yeah

Q: How can I check to see how many audiologs I have?
A: The only time you can check to see how many you have is when you pick one up. There will be a little achievement status square thingy that pops up and says 6/30 audio logs for example. There is no option in the menu or pause menu that will tell you. This makes this achievement a bit of a pain in the arse if you are not keeping track. Unfortunately you either have to go in numerical order like the map for the audio logs says to or you have to keep track yourself.

Actually you can keep track by pressing and then click . In COMM, it will tell you the Audio logs that you have. Such as Circle 1 Arc 1, Circle 3 Arc 2, etc. It wont say ??/30 but you can count them all.

There are 9 Circles and each Circle has 3 Arcs in them. EXCEPT Circle 9 which has 6 Arcs.

Q: Do I get the audio log #30 first?
A: No you do not. That is the 2nd to last mission.

I could only get this when I had 29 Audio logs.
Spoiler! (click here to reveal)

Okay guys, I loaded up Mombasa Streets (completed the game already) got the 29 audio logs. Then I try to load up Data Hive and it says my Co-Op campaign data will be erased. I collected the audios in Co-Op, so if I load data hive and click ok, will I still have my 29 audio logs and be able to collect the 30th, or not? Or do I need to play through the rest of the game again on this current save.

That is the unfortunate thing about co-op.....IT WILL ERASE those 29 logs you have already collected and the only way to get all the data logs in co-op is to play the whole campaign in one sitting because you can't save and quit.

I still need to collect the logs as well, I collected 17 in my first run of the campaign but I think I have to re-collect all of them now.....so I was thinking if I just load up NMPD HQ....do the mission and get to the fully unlocked Mombasa Streets.....get all 29 logs then go to mission replay and do data hive. (ALL IN SOLO)

RDS Mike, this game is not messed....its just you haven't done one more mission and that is "Kikowani Station", there should be one more beacon on ur map (press select) or simply press "up" on the d-pad and it will direct you to where you have to go. Once you've done that mission you will have a little surprise that will lead you to data hive. =)

hopesfall2win, you can't get any of the audio logs in the actual flashback missions but only as the rookie in the mombasa streets. But since you've entered the final mission....you will only come back to a restricted mombasa streets and you won't be able to get most of the other audio logs unfortunately (same thing happened to me). So ur only choice is pretty much doing a replay mission of NMPD HQ (AFTER ur first run in campaign) and then getting full unrestricted access to the whole of Mombasa Streets to collect all of the audio logs and then do a replay on data hive to get the last audio log.

(or is it too late? )
Right after you finished NMPD HQ (you must have done Tayari Plaza, Uplift Reserve, Kizingo Boulevard and ONI Alpha Site) because you will have full unrestricted access to the Mombasa Streets....if u start Kikowani Station (the last FB mission) the Mombasa Streets become restricted and won't allow you to collect all of the audio logs. It will be slightly difficult since your doing it in legendary but its no real biggie...Hunters are piss easy to kill in my opinion. =P

Carmona, actually whenever you get the log it will always go from the previous log story.....the reason being is that you don't miss parts of Sadie's story (it would be GAY if it was the case). What you can do is use the audio log interactive map, there's a thread that contains a link to it....use it to see which ones you got and eventually you will find the one your missing. Then just enter data hive and the cop will show you were to get the last audio log. =P

Nothing to do with achievements... but maybe save someone some frustration. You will notice numerous dumpsters in new mombasa with working hinged doors on top. DONT GET IN THE DUMPSTER!!!! I ducked inside one to do some poking around in my visr. After trying to jump out 30 or so times, i everted to my save, which was in the dumpster. After 5 or ten minutes of screaming, jumping, and tossing incindiary genades around inside a little dumpster, i finally made it out alive. To prove im not sutpid i have convinced 3 firends to climb inside these dumpsters of doom and everyone had trouble getting out.

Here are the two ways we came up with to get out of the dumpsters and save your campain:

jump enough to where you are standing and not being foced into a crouch, face the front of the dumpster, walk all the way back quickly to fling the door open, and jump forward out.

OR if you can rock the dumpster enough to tip it on its back, you can jump out with a little bashing to the door

didnt want to waste a whole thread with this

This is the First Halo game ive played and i dont know how to get back to where i left off in the campaign.

I was on the 4th Chapter last night. Saved and Quit.

Today i wanted to play the first level over again to get the 10 headshots easily.
Once i got it i saved and quit.

Now everytime i try to continue where i left off, it brings me to level 1.

I even tried finishing level 3 again. once i beat it it brought me back to level 2.

Can someone please tell me how i can get back to Mission 4???

I'm really stuck on the Tayari Plaza, the EDIT: Hunters with the geen plasma cannons. I can't kill any of them. I'm playing on Legendary, haven't had a problem until now. Any help would be appreciated.

Anyone want to help me on this map, send me a FR, I'll be on for a while.

Hide around the corner, wait for them to move past you so you have a head start, and just run straight past them. The bulkhead seals behind you and stops them getting at you at the point where the Superintendent starts talking about 'Lost property on the lower level'. I did okay on Legendary by avoiding as many conflicts as possible. You're less likely to die. =p

A: Sorry to say but you have to play again to get all the logs. You must get 29 logs before finishing the last mission that is on the map because it will trigger a part where you have to go underground to get to the last missions.
OMFG..........NO WAY.........I've got about 17 of the audio logs already and I just finished off the banshee mission and currently have to get to the underground. I wasn't sure if I went to the underground that the Data Hive mission would start immediately and so I was thinking of getting the rest of the audio logs and then going to the underground. Why would Bungie do this........they never did it with the skulls in Halo 3 or the terminals for that matter (I think).

Anyway....I'm still gonna try to get them and hopefully you are wrong or it just isn't the case for me.

Nice thread BTW. =)

EDIT: I just wanted to add a few things, for the NMPD HQ mission to start, you have to "intercept" the bent sniper rifle on the power line.............you DO NOT need to jump on any truck to "intercept" it but simply look above to it to intercept and the small cutscene would show the Rookie using some kind of metal stick to get the sniper rifle off the power line.......unless there are different cutscenes on how you intercept the flashback object. ;]

Wait......Vendetta.....can I replay missions when I finished the campaign and not start a new campaign ?

I did the missions in this order:

1.) Tayari Plaza
2.) Uplift Reserve
3.) Kizingo Boulevard
4.) ONI Alpha Site (reference to "demon" in japanese and one of Bungie's previous games)
5.) NMPD HQ
6.) Kikowani Station

I got the clue achievements without getting any sort of "glitches". =P

How to kill Hunters ??

- Stick them about 2 or 3 times with either a plasma grenade or a spike grenade.
- Use a Rocket Launcher (1 shot is enough and they will go down like flies).
- Shotgun in the back.
- Snipe their exposed backs from a distance using either a sniper rifle or beam rifle.
- On Tayari Plaza mission.....I killed one Hunter and then just ran away.....it only chases you for a bit.....before it ultimately gives up.....because its too slow. =P

O G Pukez, when you replayed the mission....you effectively erased your previous campaign progress and the game warns you about it when you do a "replay mission". The rest of your post kinda sounds weird though (especially the level 3 brings u back to level 2.....maybe because you didn't "re-do" the 2nd mission....not too sure what your trying to get at...ah well). ;]

I also wanted to say another thing, I just checked my ODST campaign history on Bungie.net and it says I have killed 8 engineers but I never got the counter for "naughty, naughty".....which is weird but hopefully I will get the Good Samaritan achievement when I start Data Hive.

LOLZ...I wanna jump into a dumpster in ODST. =P
