Can you give any helpful info? I plan to add it into
-> Infinity :: Spartan Ops
Roses vs. Violets achievement in chapter 5. You need switch on button in first progress in chapter 5 so once press button then look edge off from right side of button switch (on bridge) and look down and there lava river below and you can see small chest thing like so just scope and see it then shoot it and cheevo pop.

Knight in White Assassination achievement in chapter 4. After progress a bit until you see Knight first time in that chapter and you sneak behind cover and wait for him walk away and sneak to him then kill him behind (X button). If he saw you and shooting at you then run away from him and behind the any cover and wait for him walk back to his normal spot where he would stand and walk around there.

Enjoy!!

Could you clarify this a bit? It's a bit jumbled.

My interpretation

Episode 1, Chapter 5
There is a switch/button you must press. Press it then look to the right of the button (on the bridge) and look down at the lava below. You will see a small chest. Zoom in/Scope in and shoot it to unlock the achievement.

It is not time sensitive except that only the first episode is currently available. New Content should be available weekly. See the Achievement Guide and Road Map for more info on Spartan Ops.

My first guess is "Because they can".

Why not? Episodic content is a great way to make it seem fresh, as long as they make the episodes interesting, weekly DLC that is free(?). Good way for most players to keep coming back.

That's my thought anyway, I'll certainly be coming back every week for more Halo goodness.

The season pass is for the War Games map packs. Spartan Ops up until episode 5 is free I believe. After that they may start putting a price on the ones after 5.

EDIT
Just researched it. There will be 10 episodes with 5 chapters a piece. Totally 50 chapters and it is ALL FREE.

I love the Spartan ops and I love how they help level your Spartan, I do however find them astonishingly too short and easy. I've played them all on heroic up to now and breezed through them with team mates. They need to be much longer just as you start having really tough waves of enemies it ends :/

Agreed, they're fun to play, but it is over way too soon. However, it is just the first chapter, so hopefully the upcoming episodes will be longer.

pretty sure you have to get a game session with a friend on your list and set to legendary, go to chieve trading on the forum.
I have only got heroic games.
If your going for the chieve you have unlimited spawns and the covenent killed don't respawn when you die so it's easier than you think by yourself....plus you get all the challenge points/xp etc

Has anyone managed Chapter 3 - The Challenge solo Legendary by any chance? The infinitely respawning Watchers are kicking my ass right now.

Edit: Never mind, they're not infinite, just a damn ton of em.

Too bad the difficulty is random in Spartan Ops matchmaking. They should give us an option to find games of said difficulty.

Think of it like a TV show. New Episode airs once a week, but once the episode has aired you can watch it over and over again.

From what I read earlier (I forget where) it's not random, it's based on how many people are in the game.
