Amazing tip to everyone who has trouble beating Solo Legendary

Yes, it's amazing.

I didn't find out about this. I saw it on the Waypoint forums.

So what you basically have to do is to complete all the missions on a lower difficulty. Then comes the interesting part. You know the Rally Points? That's where things get interesting. Just go to select your mission, and choose the last RP available (and difficulty of course on legendary). Then go through the end of the mission. You can skip llike half of the level.

And yes, it gives the achievement according to the ppl on the Waypoint forums, and for me, it gives the commendation done pop up after every mission done. I need to do the last two levels, and after that I can confirm that it works.

Please, don't come here bragging about how this game is too easy for you, and how I don't deserve the achievement. I am not a god at halo campaiigns, I don't have the patience to sit behind a rock after getting shot once with Storm Rifle and have my shields gone in under a second.

This is just a tip for us who want the achievement done a lil easier. (Sorry if this is old news...)

EDIT: I can confirm that this works!

Nice find, guess this will help a lot of people having trouble. I would use this myself but apparantly this game is easier than Reach? If so then I should be fine as I beat that pretty easily in 2, 3 days.

Here's the topic where I found out about this. Apparently 343 tried to fix it, but messed it up even more to make this possible. If you want to do it, do it fast. I'm guessing this will be patched soon. I'll go to bed now, and when I wake up I'll do the last 2 or 3 missions I have left and let you know if I got the achievement. I'm pretty sure I'll get it achievement.

It would have been useful to share this information with me, seeing that I'm hard at work at making a Legendary Guide...

I'd be surprised if this goes unfixed forever...doesn't seem that hard to fix from a programming standpoint.

This glitch is possible as a result of a title update a month after the game came out. They fixed something, discovered this, tried to fix it and screwed it up even more, so they just left it.

So why after 6 months would they fix it? With all the title updates that have occurred between then and now (not to mention releasing three DLC's), you think that if they were going to fix it, they would have already.

There's also a glitch on Mission 6 (that still works) that lets you bypass 90% of the level. Again, it's been like this from release, and they haven't fixed yet, so why would they now?

Mission 6 Campaign Glitch - Complete in 5-6 minutes Solo Legendary

It would be a waste of money and resources to fix these "problems".

Does this still work?

Did they patch this, because this could save me so much time as the 3rd Level is a douche to beat.

I can also confirm this works. I had completed it on legendary co-op, but still had 4 levels to complete solo. Used this method on the four levels and the lone wolf legend cheevo popped for me too. Thank you for the great find.

Going to try this now. Hopefully it works cause I don't really want to be the game twice. Also wonder if it can be used for some of the other SP achievements like preventing one marine death?

I can now confirm that it gives the achievement! Just completed the last mission and unlocked both legendary completion and solo legendary achievements.

What would be the point of performing a glitch to complete the game on LASO...like seriously.

But you get a shiny new emblem for completing it LASO ...

Seriously though, I'm following the ARG on Waypoint and LASO completion may be significant to future Waypoint terminal unlock codes.

I do want to LASO it either way, once I've reached SR130.

Once again, a thread where people give other people shit on getting achievements in exploitable ways. Don't let it bother you guys. Achievements are fun to get and if people want to do it this way, it's not gonna take away from how you got yours or interfere with your life.

Pretty cool trick though. I'm still gonna try and do it legit though since I have always looked forward to going through Halo games on Legendary (Except 2)

Also, BiggD, don't be discouraged in writing your guide. I will be looking forward to reading it and all the people who still plan on doing it legit will be too.

Looks like I'll have to try this method. Beat it once via my friends account to help him. But dreaded going back and beating it for my own. This'll save much more time so I can go finish my Now they fly achieve. -.-

Wow what a huge tip.

Part of me is proud that I completed the game but part of me wishes I had of known this. There were so many frustrating situations in my legendary playthrough.

Interesting tip, I did Legendary Solo awhile ago, but this should help several people immensely.

Legendary Solo was pretty easy for me, I only had trouble on a few parts.

Nice find, I have already completed legendary difficulty solo and would say that this is definitely the easiest Halo game I've played. I will use this tip though if I play the game through again helping a friend do co-op legendary.

Nice find, just got the game for christmas.
I've not decided if i'm going to playthrough it straight off on legendary solo or just play through on normal 1st.

But i'll definitely keep this tip in mind if I do hit any rough spots.

Does it unlock the co-op heroic achievement? Can you select rally points in split screen?

Edit : answered already

Can anyone explain in more detail how to do this? I've never really played Halo, and I'm awful and don't really like the game, but my girlfriend got it for me for Christmas, so yeah, I can't not play it. Last night I tried loading a mission rally point, I think for the prologue, set it to legendary and it just started from the beginning. More explanation or a video maybe?
