i have done half the chapters on legendary. it was just frustratingly slow popping out headshotting grunts and jackals and then sprinting around grabbing their plasma pistols to take out the elites shields so i could one shot kill them

Its kinda weird to think this way but I see this game as sorta a test and now that we know the cheivos (whats on the test) we can study for it (do em all in orig. CE). But probably just college messing with my brain.

They're both 100% in every Halo/Bungie game that has achievements to give (I just wish they'd release more Bungie classics. I wanna see Myth, Oni, and Pathways Into Darkness come over as well as the other Marathon games. The one we got was easily the worst in the series.)
I'm just extremely neurotic. When I got my new 360 in late 2009, I made it my mission to create a new profile and attempt EVERY cheevo. I can't tell you how many hours, curse words, and broken controllers it's taken... but I'm looking forward to the challenge of H:CEA!

Though I'm more intimidated by this game more than the others (maybe except Marathon 2. That game was a (BLEEP)!!!

No Halo achievement is too difficult, except for maybe 'running the show'. XD

I'm praying they are not too hard but then again I like Halo achievements to be hard for the challenge.

They are never hard. Just challenging. Or in Halo 2s case repetitive.

I don't find these achievements to be repetitive compared to the "achievement guidelines" Bungie used for the previous 360 Halo titles. Frankly, 343 did a good job making these. The only ones that are repetitive are those for completing a certain level, completing the game on normal/heroic/legendary/finding skulls, stuff like that. The rest are loaded with pure AWESOMENESS and will be a joy for me to unlock.

Yes, it was always a staple in Halo achievements and made for a traditional easy achievement. It shall be missed.

I'm saddened moreso by the lack of Vidmasters in this and Reach. In CE it's understandable since it's built to honor tihe original without changing it, but Reach should've had some kind of challenge like Deja Vu (and the H3 equivalent. Can never remember the name.) Between the 4-banshee trigger when you go back to Sword Base and the 4 Spartan Lasers by the MAC gun at the end of Pillar of Autumn, it looks as if something like this is attempted to be setup, but never goes through. Would've been neat having an extra chunk added to the level exclusively for people with 4 players and meeting certain requirements. Even making Lone Wolf into a completely different type of level with 4-players would've been interesting.

Same, instead we got a few MM cheivos for Reach(ewwwww) a couple of which will be sheer bastards and some higher up difficulty ones for CE. I kinda wanted to do those odd joys known as Vidmasters again.

Getting the Vidmasters was one of the most fun I had in Halo ever, and the lucrative prize at the end of that road

"Road to Recon" was an amazing experience - achievement wise. There were no shortcuts to donning that armor, let me tell you.

Damn straight! Halo CE's 100% completion has me intimidated like a mixture of General ranking on Halo Wars and the thought of actually 100%ing Marathon (cringes). But these will be damn fun!

No matter how hard the achievement, if it is Halo I will get it! (Halo Wars doesn't count because I haven't finished it yet )

What're you missing in Halo Wars? If you've got anything left besides Running the Show I'd be willing to help you get it. I also have a good chunk of free time tomorrow before me and my mistress head out for an evening of fun (going for Dinner, than getting out copies of Skyrim) so if you're free tomorrow afternoon I'd be game to help you boost a little bit closer to General Rank. Takes several hours per person to boost, but any boosting is better than no boosting since 32,000 exp per round is better than a couple thousand you usually get since everybody rage quits in this game.

In case you haven't heard, THREE new achievements appeared on Waypoint (console) recently after they did their update. Alongside the MP achievements posted here, here are the three NEW Defiant achievements::

  • Don't Touch That - Defiant - Prevent the attacking team from touching the flag in a matchmade 1-Flag CTF game. 25G
  • Paper Beats Rock - Defiant: Assassinate a player that just exited Armor-Lock in a matchmade game. 15G
  • All Alone - Defiant: Be the last surviving uninfected player in a matchmade Infection game. 10G
There is no question these might bring us the elusive GRD helmet!

They should all be relatively easy to pull off for people not looking to boost. Probably the toughest one is the Assassination since the damage it does shutting off tends to keep players back long enough for them to turn around.

I agree that all of the new multiplayer achievements should be easy, except the headhunter achievement.
As for the assassinate someone coming out of armor lock, I picture hanging out above an area with a ton of vehicular activity, waiting for someone to go into AL, and (since you're above them, and you aren't actively looking at you since you aren't shooting them) you have the element of surprise and height advantage when they come out of it.

I was thinking get a ghost on a BTB or Invasion map and start fake boosting at people. Somebody is bound to armor lock to try and kill you. Than it's simply a matter of remember his username and lobbing grenades at him until you're in a position to nab him. I wonder what the window is between deactivating Armor Lock and the game no longer counting it as "just coming out" of Armor Lock.

I am looking to boost the new Reach achievements as soon as humanly possible. So far only the new Defiant ones can be done, so anybody interested should get on the Reach boosting thread.

Don't forget about the quick turn when coming out of armour lock, if I see you standing behind me I will either

a) Wait to come out of armour lock and quickly melee you or...

b) Get out of armour lock early when you are not expecting it and melee you.

Will mostly come down to luck and perseverance.

You CAN get them, yes. Co-Op Legendary on the first level with Bandana is an alternative method. Make you have unlimited grenades and the one player can hurl his way to the end rather quickly.
