Achievement Discussion

The Achievements are here

http://halo.xbox.com/en-us/news/head...vements/285109

They look pretty challenging but nothing that wont take a few controllers.

Discuss.

Why not just use this thread to discuss the achievements? More than likely, both threads will contain the same content, so there is no need for a second.

Just report the original and ask for a title change.

You are right I guess, you usually see threads with 'Achievement Discussion' not 'Achievements are here' I interpreted the other thread as just showing the achievements, not actually being a discussion thread.

One of Halo Anniversary's big emphasis is on Co-op play so most of these should be able to be attained in Co-op.

Dark Reign, I'm thinking you either have to just stand on top of the hog or do a warthog grenade jump or possibly if you get a rocket before this do a rocket jump with the hog.

yep, after seeing the achievement list I'd be ripping my head off and keep screaming after countless amount of dying if playing.

I'll avoid it for now else I'll be having a heart attack on the damn Library level.

If worse comes to worse you can always co-op but it will be fun to try by yourself.

The emphasis on Halo: CE Anniversary is the Co-op game play so it will be good.

Tsansta doesn't sound too difficult to me, I guess we just need to see the other skulls.

I don't think it will be as much easier because that will change the core gameplay but I believe it was said they are going to add more lighting so you are able to see better. Which I guess will make it easier because that was a big problem for me.

For me personally, the hardest achievement will probably be beating Truth and Reconciliation with 4 bullets left in the Sniper. This is suggesting you will have to keep the sniper on you the entire level AND you can't use all of your ammo for it. This level lacks a pistol, so your only arsenal is an Assault Rifle, Plasma Rifle, Plasma Pistol, or Needler.

I agree, probably the toughest achievement this game. I may have some problems with the one where you can't lose a block of health on heroic or higher, I was playing The Pillar of Autumn on Legendary in preparation late last night, I seemed receive a glancing blow from a stray grenade now and again, but I'll keep trying so I know I can do this when Anniversary comes out. The other achievement that's not exactly tough, but I find to be rather time consuming, is How Pedestrian. I know you have to grenade jump in the unnatural cave, but I can't seem to do it. DarkReign, what happened to your guide? Did it get removed? I NEEDZ HALP

Yeah. They removed it.

I don't personally recommend using Pillar of Autumn for "He's Unstoppable" as even I have some trouble on that level to this day (Curse that damn stairway!) My personal suggestion, assuming you're willing to glitch the game, is Assault on the Control Room. At the beginning of the level when you first get to the bridge, you're able to scale the cliff down to the bottom of the canyon (easier on Co-Op.) This will despawn every enemy in the game. If that's not your cup of tea, there's also the Banshee Rocket glitch. If you fly fast enough through the tunnel after large indoor room, t will despawn every enemy from the canyon with the tower to the end of the level.

http://youtu.be/4Vk47yF1gLA
(Ignore the second half. The first half is the banshee to do the glitch. Doing this is also a way to unlock "I'll take that" earlier than normal (the second half of this video is the "official" banshee they're expecting players to hijack.)

As for the gap on Level 2, this trick is going to require a plasma grenade. You're going to have to position the throw perfectly and get a running jump to make it. Throwing a grenade at your feet and jumping like most grenade launches isn't going to work in this scenario.

Edit: And apparently I have no clue how to embed Youtube videos anymore...

Am I the only one that doesn't remember there being any skulls or terminals in the first Halo game? I thought skulls weren't introduced until Halo 2.. and Terminals in 3.

Skulls are the only real thing they are changing in the campaign but it doesn't take away from the core gameplay. It's too bad they deleted your guide but it gives you time to perfect it I guess and I am also finding the not getting hit hard and that jump.

You're right. There were no skulls and terminals in the original Halo CE. 343 have added them now, one in each level afaik. You can only interact with them when you're using the new graphics. They don't exist in classic mode.

I dont think any of my friends are getting this (mostly just MW3) so i was wondering if anyone wants to add me and we could do the campaign on Legendary when this game comes out on release day.

We could also work towards the level specific achievements afterwrds.
I wanted to play the game on Regular then Remastered version.

If your possibly interested please feel free to add me on xbox live @ JONBLEACH

thanks

Ok. I just finished my Legendary run of Halo: CE with the 'Achievement' Guidelines. Obviously I can't know if they're all 100% accurate (still not sure exactly how the Sniper in T&R works) but to the best of my knowledge all of these achievements are manageable. If it had been the Anniversary version, the only ones I would be missing are the Terminal and Skull cheevos. It took me about 5 hours to get through the campaign with the use of various tricks and glitches in each level.

So, who else is ready for Anniversary? Those terminals have me shaking with anticipation. I'm dying to know what's on them. More information about the Forerunner, the Inferi, and Halo 4 in general. I'm game. I just wish Glasslands would hurry up :-/ That'll help tide me over until Anniversary and Primordium.

Anybody is welcome to add me as long as they send me a message telling me they're from X360A. I will say that I'm typically a mic-less player though. My wife doesn't like me using the mic, so when she's home I typically keep it out or at least don't talk much. If she's not home though I'm always up for a party chat.

Sooooo Halo 3 was 1750G.

You would think so would Reach...

So anyone think Reach will be getting Halo Anniversary map pack achievements?

Anyone wanna guess what they could be? Id say Blood Gultch would have a sniper one or CTF one lol.

I'm thinking it will. Would be nice if they rounded it out at 1750 but having 350G attached to it is a stretch. Couldn't speculate on achievements though, may as well just wait (though I hope there's a firefight achievement for the new map!).

More on topic, I already said this in the other thread but I'm glad the Anniversary achievements are co-op friendly. Halo's always been a social experience to me and co-op campaign is the main reason I much prefer this series to other FPS' that restrict you to single player. I really hated having to play through Legendary solo on Reach, not because of the difficulty but because it just wasn't as fun without others to share the experience.
