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.

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.

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.

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?

Because ODST was only released for 2 reasons 1. to fend off hungry fans while they wait for reach 2. to feed Microsofts greed. Mainly number 2 though. On a side note i did endure first try with some friends.

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

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.

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.

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.

I agree, I've tried getting Endure at least 6 different times. We'd be almost done and then someone would disconnect and there was 2 hours wasted I haven't tried again in a really long time, mainly because I haven't had 2 - 3 hours of free time to try to tackle the achievement.

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.

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

The connection is the biggest opponent. We faced some consistent lag throughout. Things will be fine then they will get a little laggy. Other than that, have the best player be the designated person to plasma pistol the shields/armor off the brutes. Make sure to know what weapons to use and when... and lastly, have a gameplan for all the hammer guys.

It's tough, but not impossible. I had my most issues with the game dropping people out. Had to do this about 7 times until we got it.

I'm in agreeance w/ most people who've posted thus far. Its the connection lagging out thats the hardest part. Tried this twice last week, first time it lagged out on the 4th set, 2nd round... 2nd time it lagged out in the 1st set.

Had a 3rd go last saturday and got it w/ ease. Had about 30 lives remaining.

I did it with my two deaf friends and a guy from Australia.

Me- Pennsylvania
2nd Friend- Missouri
3rd Friend- Wisconsin
4th Friend- Australia

Let me tell you this, I didn't think we would make it before we start this because how far apart we are especially this guy from Australia that it would disconnected us in anytime. It didn't. We made it and got endure achievement. BUT it was laggy as hell in the whole firefight, maybe 10-15 seconds lag, it was annoying but we got used to it.

Now, Im on my new GT and will start on Endure again. Love ODST!

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

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.

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]

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.

The achievement is not that hard at all. Like many people said, its finding 3 players willing to sit for 2 hours and that have a good connection. My friends and I tried going for the achievement about 5 times, because one of my friends kept lagging out at the last wave of the 4 set.
