Like the achievement guide says do this on Uplift Reserve. At the beginning flip the hog over and dodge and evade as much as possible. After you get to a point where a ghost is get in there. You can boost and splatter people and still get the achievement just make sure you never hit the right trigger. I was messing around pulling the trigger with the laser and did not get the achievement so I had to start over.
I don't think you're allowed to beep the horn on the warthog though, i used rigth to beep horn and in the end didn't get achievement, was pissed off, although acording to a friend you can't splatter people.

Beeping the horn, semi-charging the spartan laser, all no-nos. In fact, you cannot touch the right or left trigger period.

Splatters are okay though. After getting past the first two wraiths there's a ghost by a tree. I suggest grabbing it and using its boost to splatter everyone in your way. That's how I did it. Took about 8 minutes

Hey Vendetta,

Thought you might want an update on this guide. There are 4 Rocket Launchers with 999 ammo and 2 Mongoose in the first tunnel before the door at the beginning of the highway. I think this will make it easier for people who are going for the Vidmaster Challenge: Deja Vu Achievement as you will need it to blast away Ghosts, Banshees, and Anti-Air Wraiths from the Elephant. Not sure if this was mentioned, but I read through this thread and am sure no one found this.

Regards,
KD214

P.S. Nice guide.

Thanks for the guide, Vendetta.
Really helped a lot.

match almost lagged out 3 times, and the last one was at set 4, round 3, wave 4.

Almost had a heart attack.

Luckily we were able to complete it after 2 hours and 684,000 points later with 20 lives left.

Classic bummer!

Great guide...
I tried the Classic on "Prepare to Drop" and just using Melee finished the first part and no achiev...wondering, was I supposed to finish the flashback too? This was all before I thought of or read about Uplift reserve...will try that tonight but I'm still kinda curious (It's a sep. mission so I thought it would work, whatever).

guys I have been busy as all hell I will update the guide and the FAQ that is stickied sometime this weekend.

thanks for all the positive feedback glad I could be of help to you all. Also you lurker people that do not post and just send me FR you are going to be ignored. If you seriously need help then post/find people in the achievement trading thread. I am so burnt out on ODST it is not even funny and I still have 2 friends that I have to help but they have to wait for me to want to actually play it again.

You can use LT while you're in the Ghost to boost...to get through.

i thought the whole point of recon helm was that it was on fire? one of the reasons i wasted couple hours trying to do vidmasters so upset it just looks like any other helm? so what makes it so much better/harder to get?

The firey particle effect is the "new recon" ... in that I mean it is how you tell who is a Bungie employee now. Only Bungies have the flaming helmet effect.

Nice thread, too bad I bought the game and had to work on my new house for like 3 weeks before I could really play anything in my free time, but at least now I know how to get everything and all the FAQs are up.

My friends & I got retail copies of the game like 4 days early. We did not have a 4th person that we trusted enough to play with us so we had the 2nd acct sit in the corner since nobody on any of our friend's lists had the game early. We also had literally no problems and ended up with like 20 extra lives. After the endure achievement unlocked we just ran around melee'ing everything and dying to end it all. The goal was to try and 1K it before it came out. Sadly we got the last achievement like 2-3 hrs after the game came out.

Please no more random friend requests about endure. I have spent so much time helping people that it is starting to get on my nerves. Plus with gamerscore league starting up I quite literally have no time to devote to anything other than playing with my team.

Please find people in the achievement boosting thread. I will be updating this thread and the FAQ tonight/tomorrow.

Thank You.

if your windows live/bungie/xbox is messed up in anyway or if you forgot something you're screwed, like i am. Trying to fix the problem gets you no where cuz the websites will just give you the run-around and force you to make a million accounts that have no use. Some of the links on Bungie are even misinformative. im really pissed i'll never get the recon i deserve
