And I really do appreciate your efforts. Call me old fashioned but I would rather complete the campaign on Legendary just the way it should be done & without using shortcuts.

It's 343's fault that we can do this. If I didnt found out about this, I would have gone through it the "legit" way. But this saved my time. It's not like I hacked the game or something...


And for your guide, it's looking good. I'm sure I would have used it, but now there's no need because of this rally point thing.

Seriously though, I'm following the ARG on Waypoint and LASO completion may be significant to future Waypoint terminal unlock codes.

I do want to LASO it either way, once I've reached SR130.

Once again, a thread where people give other people shit on getting achievements in exploitable ways. Don't let it bother you guys. Achievements are fun to get and if people want to do it this way, it's not gonna take away from how you got yours or interfere with your life.

Pretty cool trick though. I'm still gonna try and do it legit though since I have always looked forward to going through Halo games on Legendary (Except 2)

Also, BiggD, don't be discouraged in writing your guide. I will be looking forward to reading it and all the people who still plan on doing it legit will be too.

Looks like I'll have to try this method. Beat it once via my friends account to help him. But dreaded going back and beating it for my own. This'll save much more time so I can go finish my Now they fly achieve. -.-

Thanks for the heads up on this. Some of you may consider it cheating, but I really don't care. I've already beaten the game three times on Legendary on co-op and I've played the crap out of every Halo game that's ever been released so don't tell me I'm missing out on the experience

Agree. Halo 2 was the toughest campaign to get through for sure.

Halo 4 is the first Halo game that I decided to do my first run through of the campaign on Legendary. I managed to complete all levels Solo (and did not use this shortcut you are all discussing). I like to feel a sense of accomplishment by actually completing the entire mission.

Shoot if this still works on Friday I'll need to do it. After I turn in that last final I will finally embrace my Xbox again and I would love to give her the sweet welcome of a Halo 4.

Wow what a huge tip.

Part of me is proud that I completed the game but part of me wishes I had of known this. There were so many frustrating situations in my legendary playthrough.

Going to have to try this nice, thanks for letting us know!

Edit - Is it possible to just blast through the campaign on easy then, using level select then choosing rally point and difficulty?

I was playing Bourne Conspiracy few weeks back, had a similar way of unlocking the hard difficulty achievement but you couldn't use level select, it had to be in a single campaign run through from start to finish then backing out, loading up last part of level and choosing hard difficulty.

Well this is an achievement forum. So the ends justify the means.

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.

EDIT: I can confirm that this works!
ok its not working 4 me idear's please people

got this a few days back .. did not update the game

in a nut shell I finished the game on normal and got all the terminals

Same for Splinter Cell: Conviction. Running through the levels on Easy and when you get to the last checkpoint, just save and quit and resume on Realistic. Luckily someone posted where the checkpoints are in the forum.

I personally am doing this with two friends on Legendary from the start, but it might be useful if I attempt this solo (I know, everyone says it's not too hard, but I don't give a shit what people say. I'm going to play the game the way I want to play it. It's my right). If a title update has made this unattainable, couldn't you just clear your cache and play the game offline and have this work? Seems logical it would, unless it didn't work at first and something they changed in a title update made this work.


EDIT - Ok, according to TU 4 on 12/6/12, this update MADE it possible to do the campaign this way, not hinder it. So unless they fix this again with TU 5, you can do this legitimately (according to 343).

"Fixed issue where players could not unlock Campaign completion achievements when using a rally point other than Alpha for any mission to finish the Campaign" - so this means they fixed it so you CAN unlock Campaign completion achievements when using a rally point other than Alpha.

Interesting tip, I did Legendary Solo awhile ago, but this should help several people immensely.

Legendary Solo was pretty easy for me, I only had trouble on a few parts.

Nice find, I have already completed legendary difficulty solo and would say that this is definitely the easiest Halo game I've played. I will use this tip though if I play the game through again helping a friend do co-op legendary.

Nice find, just got the game for christmas.
I've not decided if i'm going to playthrough it straight off on legendary solo or just play through on normal 1st.

But i'll definitely keep this tip in mind if I do hit any rough spots.

I'm surprised nobody has mentioned that beating the campaign solo legendary will give you access to a classified code! This makes it easier to get that too.

Does it unlock the co-op heroic achievement? Can you select rally points in split screen?
