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'm hoping man. I've never written such a lengthy Guide before for any game. It's quite the task. But in the end, if it helps the community, then I've done my job.

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.

It works. Did the last 3 levels like this and my chievo popped.

It DOES also update your service record, saying you completed the extra levels and completed the game on legendary, and I got the Mark VI armour for War Games, too.

The only downside is that it won't give you the challenge for completing whatever level on solo legendary.

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?

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

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

I have the last two levels left to do for solo Legendary. I might have to give this a go.

Boo to all the people that are too lazy to tough out their solo legendary run.

Halo 4 is nowhere near as hard as Halo 2 (which I just beat solo legendary on PC a few days back). Halo 2 took me a little over eight years to beat solo legendary, but I did finish it co-op on the original Xbox a long time ago.

343i needs to sort out more of Halo 4's glitches, because now I'm feeling even more butthurt from all these people trying to riddle their way out of a great learning experience.

Question: if you do this trick/glitch will there be a legendary symbol for the levels in solo campaign under the service record? Or will you just simply get the achievement?

Like I said in the op, posts like these I don't want in this topic. Some ppl just don't have the skill, patience or time to go through the game like its meant to be.

I originally had the 8 missions completed on heroic co-op. while I was playing MM and checked my service record, it had 14 missions completed (I hadnt done the last two missions). So I think it will show that you have completed it on legendary. I'll confirm this tomorrow when I wake up.
Edit: I misunderstood your question. Yes, there is the legendary symbol when selecting the mission. All my missions have been completed solo legendary and heroic co-op. About the service record, I need to check that later.

Which is exactly why I'm creating a Legendary Guide to save people the stress of getting stuck in certain fights, save people time by showing them tricks to bypass certain fights, and give them a detailed rundown of each level so they know what to do. I mean, if you're gonna have to exploit a game to get a mere 90 then I feel bad for you.

dont feel bad for him because he wont! fair play to him,hes found a shortcut and deserves credit.if it means less people use your guide then thats life,ive already completed my solo legendary run the hard way but would have used this method if id known,along with perhaps your guide for any trouble spots.this site is all about helping making those achievements pop as quickly and easily as possible and ppl have the option of doing it the hard way,boosting,taking advantage of glitches,whatever! this site caters for ALL! imo contributions like this are vital if theyre available,as the guy said not everyone is blessed with skill or time,so if you wana feel bad for anyone feel bad for 343....not the first mistake theyve made with halo 4 is it

Lol...I don't care about, "how many people use my Guide," I'm doing it because I love Halo and want to, not because it'll make me feel popular.

Okay...and yet I stand by my convictions that it's sad that people need to exploit games in order to earn their ACHIEVEMENTS. But whatever floats your boat, right?

Credit goes to him? No. He didn't find the method. He found it off HaloWaypoint and even admitted that he did, so credit goes to whoever originally found it. Just because he posted it here doesn't mean he was the one to 'found a shortcut,' he's simply sharing it from one website to another.

Oh, and learn how to proofread. Your grammar is atrocious.
