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.

Neat trick, hopefully it will be around in few weeks. I am doing each mission on legendary as challenges come to net some bonus xp while at it, so will be a while before I get to this one=)

Question

Did this and works, HOWEVER.....

Halo waypoint does not show the mission as completed on legendary?????

This is the first mission I have done on Legendary, the rest are completed as Normal but Waypoint is showing all NORMAL. yet from mission screen select it shows Shutdown as completed on Legendary.

Anyone else getting this ??

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.

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.

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.

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??

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.

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

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

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.

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

None of the missions are hard legendary solo if you take your time. I'd have done this if I knew before though.

I literally just completed this last night without using the glitch/skip. It was pretty damn frustrating, but not impossible.

Just finished solo legendary. At first I was quite annoyed I didn't see this beforehand, but kind of proud I did it 'legit' anyway. Either way - Solo Legendary completed!

Legendary Solo isn't Legendary Solo without going through all the painful parts

Saying that, now that I'm done with it, this will be of use to get the Weekly Challenges
