Neat trick, hopefully it will be around in few weeks. I am doing each mission on legendary as challenges come to net some bonus xp while at it, so will be a while before I get to this one=)

Oh how I wish I would have checked this before going nuts over the past hour jet packing all over the place using the light rifle as a sniper. Woulda saved me a whole lot o.f time and anger. Oh well, this oughta teach me great vid too...I will however use this for the two co-op campaign runs I'm helping do at present. And just midnight remains for solo legend to be complete yay!

None of the missions are hard legendary solo if you take your time. I'd have done this if I knew before though.

BUMP.

Probably a few more out there who still haven't gotten a chance to see this.

And this is the first and only "bump" I will give the thread.

The creator of the vid also has good speed runs for the first 5 missions as well which I know ill be using because once the story is finished I don't feel much like grinding my way through on legendary.
More videos coming too apparently

Nak3dHalo is a great uploader. You should check out some of his Halo Reach Speedruns, used some of them was pretty awesome. Specifically the last level on legendary (Not that it was hard, just found Reach much funner to speedrun lol.)

awesome from Nak3DHalo,this guys mustard! how ppl find these glitches baffles me! i did the the whole level including the gondola section on my easy run so i could grab the terminal (using this glitch means you miss it!) but luckily i was then able to use this method on my legendary run,saved me some serious time!

Did this earlier today and boy did it help out. I ended up EMPing two banshees and destroyed the elites making is super easy to destroy the other banshee leaving the other enemies easy pickings. It took me a bit to get in because I forgot I had a jetpack though. Also, hunters died from 2 incineration cannon shots.

Question

Did this and works, HOWEVER.....

Halo waypoint does not show the mission as completed on legendary?????

This is the first mission I have done on Legendary, the rest are completed as Normal but Waypoint is showing all NORMAL. yet from mission screen select it shows Shutdown as completed on Legendary.

Anyone else getting this ??

Waypoint is sort of screwed up currently with certain things. I wouldn't worry about that too much, but worry more on the mission select screen in the game.

I literally just completed this last night without using the glitch/skip. It was pretty damn frustrating, but not impossible.

The bug must vary from person to person. It's showing fine for me in Waypoint. That is.... one ugly ass skull for Legendary.

The Banshee section was a nightmare still. The vid made it look so easy (well he made everything look easy LOL) but I got blasted the moment I took off about half a dozen times before even getting near the exit, another half dozen times near the exit before I finally managed to run through the checkpoint OUCH

Worked fine for me! Used the glitch to finish the weekly challenge with the skull as well

Just did this and it worked like a charm. Great find, it probably saved me 45 minutes at least of my life that I didn't have to waste on that level.

I did this just like the video said. Very awesome walkthrough!!

However this didnt take me 5-6 minutes....the dude in the video is really really really good! It still took me over 30 mins since I kept dying. I swear I couldnt get past the elite before the 2 hunters. I got a bad checkpoint where he was shooting his big green gun and died immediately!

Is that because you have completed it all on Legendary? I have only done that 1 mission on Legendary and its not showing in waypoint.

Just finished solo legendary. At first I was quite annoyed I didn't see this beforehand, but kind of proud I did it 'legit' anyway. Either way - Solo Legendary completed!

Just checked the commendations - and it's also not showing in that as Shutdown completed on Legendary. Did anyone here jump ahead and complete it and its showing as completed?? (Apart from mission select screen)

Possibly, there may be a bug in that. I did co-op legendary first with some friends. Then moved on to it solo and was really glad to have seen the video before I hit that chapter.

Shitty dude, I only every did that mission legendary solo using the bypass, never repeated the whole thing. No way in hell I was going to solo Legend that bastard legit without breaking a controller.

Not sure if it makes a difference but I also completed all legendary missions solo in order from 1-8 without jumping straight to 6. It shouldn't make a difference but you never know.

So maybe co-op the legendary with some friends then take another crack at it solo and see if it registers.
