Halo 4

Halo 4 Achievements

Lone Wolf Legend

Completed the Campaign solo on Legendary difficulty.     

Campaign related. Online not required. Must be obtained on Legendary. 
Must complete the Campaign Solo. 

Exploit! An exploit has been discovered that enables you to get this achievement while playing the entire game at a lower then Legendary difficulty setting. Play through the game on Normal. Then play each level on Legendary, starting from the last Rally Point in each mission. It tricks the game into thinking you've played each level entirely on Legendary.

If getting it legitamately, there are a couple ways to play this difficulty setting effectively. You can playthrough the levels Slow or Fast.

Slow - Pace yourself and kill every last enemy, get a checkpoint and continue playing this way checkpoint after checkpoint. Spending 45 - 60 minutes per level.

  • Use a powerful weapon combo like PP/BR or BR/Sniper. Use the Plasma Pistol charged shot to deplete shields and then switch to your BR to headshot the unshielded enemies. Use the LightRifle/Suppressor combo or LightRifle/Scattershot combo.
  • Use a ranged weapon and pick off enemies from afar.
  • Shoot at enemies while remaining near cover.
  • Revert to cover if shield is even remotely depleted - by the time you realize you've been shot at your shield will most likely be gone.
  • Stickies are very powerful, use them often when they are available.
  • Save Power weapons for the Hunters, or tough enemies near end of levels.

Fast - Rush the enemy, grab only the weapons/ammo for enemies you must fight. You are looking to get to checkpoints with as little resistance as possible, beating the level under 10 - 15 minutes.

  • Use a powerful weapon combo like BR/Shotgun or Sword, BR/Sniper. Use the Shotgun or Sword to take down an enemy quickly while you are rushing past if you are met with too much resistance.
  • Find alternate routes that will keep you primarily hidden from enemies.
  • Use Ghosts, Banshees, Warthogs for speed and their ability to get you to areas you could not get to by foot.
  • Use a ranged weapon and pick off enemies from afar that will kill you as you Rush (Knights, Turrets).
  • Use cover when needed but also to remain hidden from enemies walking/running past
  • Stickies are very powerful, use them often when they are available.
  • Save Power weapons for the Hunters, or tough enemies near end of levels.

You can use both these methods interchangeably, sometimes you will get to a point where you must clear the area of all enemies before moving on. Adopt a method you feel comfortable with.

If stuck at an objective, make sure your keep trying it in new and different ways to see if there is a better alternative to completing each checkpoint.

I don't get why people think this'll be difficult. You want a challenge, go play Halo 2 solo on legendary.

I was about to say, the only REALLY challenging Halo campaign was 2.

This is my favorite achievement of the game.I hope it is challenging and i like how it seperates the best of us from the coop ass draggers. I wish more coop games had this.

I dont find this difficult just annoying, i would rather play with friends not myself

Comment #5 by Crims0nPenguin
Saturday, September 01, 2012 @ 12:27:29 PM

Pfft... easy enough... you want a real challenge try beating it solo with all skulls and not using a plasma pistol...

Comment #6 by DHc FiReHawK
Saturday, September 01, 2012 @ 01:12:22 PM

Luckily for me, I already did Halo 2, Halo 3, Halo Reach and Halo CEA on Legendary solo. You just have to skip parts of the level: rather avoid a combat then lose one.

love the achievement picture and people are right, Halo 2 Legendary was the hardest of them all. this will be a fun playthrough.

Comment #8 by Homaz

Solo Campaign on Legendary WITH ALL SKULLS ON would be a tough challenge. But this is way too easy...

Comment #9 by BiggD
Saturday, September 01, 2012 @ 02:44:47 PM

^of course if would be, if you're Solo with Iron on then you have to complete the entire Campaign without a single death!

really is a waste of writing to say its easy for you, just internet cock waving, as with anything there are varying levels of skill among the community, recognise this and save your cock waving for when school starts again, even me typing is cynical cock waving, everything really is pointless, should delete this but rather intrigued by the random tangent im on, toodles

Comment #11 by Nevander
Saturday, September 01, 2012 @ 03:35:08 PM

This will probably be very easy since Reach was a joke solo compared to other Halo's on legendary.

Comment #12 by HalfEVILmonkey
Saturday, September 01, 2012 @ 03:49:26 PM

@#10: LOL, I totally agree with you. Wow! You beat it solo legendary! Good for you! No one cares!

i cant wait to play this game, the achievements are merely just a tac-on now adays. they've lost their meaning/skill level a long time ago.

they are just points kids. nothing more.

Anywayss, Halo 4 will be fucking amazing and i want it right fucking now.

Saturday, September 01, 2012 @ 05:02:05 PM

I'm impressed that everyone here has already played the game and thus knows immediately how difficult this will be. I wish I had that luxury of inside information to know definitively that this is already "so easy, you guys."

Comment #15 by Revoltation
Saturday, September 01, 2012 @ 05:34:36 PM

Part of me hopes that this will be as hard as Halo 2 legendary, I could use a challenge

Comment #16 by Godfather93a
Saturday, September 01, 2012 @ 06:09:45 PM

More games with Co-oP campaign need to do achievements like this one. I really wish Gears 2 & 3 would have. I hope Dead Space 3 will have an achievement for single & Co-oP.

Comment #17 by i fist brown i
Saturday, September 01, 2012 @ 06:20:52 PM

@14, i was thinking the exact same thing... ppl on the internet are retarded... judge the difficulty when you play it, for all we know legendary could be die once restart the whole level (if not the whole game).. then those same commenters (the ones saying its easy) will be on the forum complaining about how gay 343 is for making such a difficulty.

Easy , I do the Super Mario in all Halo...Run through and get checkpoints quick as possible and not deal with the enemies unless it ties in the campaign thats a bitch too, but DO-A-BLE!

Tuesday, September 04, 2012 @ 07:59:08 AM

how could you all think this is easy!? you never played the game yet... dont say it's easy when you never tried it yourself. i mean sure its 8 missions but you never know

Comment #24 by rbodden89
Tuesday, September 04, 2012 @ 11:05:33 AM

Didn't notice this at 1st thought 'The Legend of 117' was the solo legendary. 5 campaign completion cheevos is overkill, 3 would have been enough.

Wake Up, John 20
Completed the Campaign on Normal or harder.

I Need a Hero 40
Completed the Campaign on Heroic or harder.

Bromageddon 40
Completed the Campaign cooperatively on Heroic or harder.

The Legend of 117 70
Completed the Campaign on Legendary difficulty.

Lone Wolf Legend 90
Completed the Campaign solo on Legendary difficulty.

Tuesday, October 02, 2012 @ 10:04:25 PM

WOW only 90 GS for completing it on legendary alone. In Halo Reach it used to be 150. That probably means that this is easier to beat.

Comment #36 by DarkVoltage 117
Friday, October 05, 2012 @ 08:03:34 AM

I've finished Halo 2 Legendary solo and it was Awesome, I'm excited to see if Halo 4 Legendary solo is harder than Halo 2 or not ..

Comment #37 by DarkVoltage 117
Friday, October 05, 2012 @ 08:06:22 AM

@35 Halo 2 Legendary achievement was 50GS and it's harder than Halo Reach, so if Halo 4 Legendary solo is 90GS that doesn't mean it's easier

Comment #38 by Pikachu512
Sunday, October 07, 2012 @ 11:29:33 PM

Awesome achievement! piece of cake

Comment #39 by ShockTrooper150
Monday, October 08, 2012 @ 03:29:43 AM

Thank god there is another one of these achievements like on Reach, hated all those idiots that were like "Legendary was so easy, I had like 3 others help me" and i'm like "B*tch please, carved up in solo." Bet alot of them won't have this achievement, haha

So looking forward to this game and glad they have introduced a solo legendary chevo.

Comment #44 by DPeezy09
Thursday, October 18, 2012 @ 01:11:24 AM

@35 or there are just more achievements so they had to reduce the amount. 150g for any achievement is outrageous. I think 90 is perfect. and @43, this isn't the first time they've done it...

Comment #45 by Ghost of Church
Thursday, October 18, 2012 @ 07:25:44 PM

Alot of the vidocs are saying this one will be the hardest yet because of the new battle adaptions based on the number of enemies and location, not to mention knights are built to be tougher than elites. However I have been beating halo legendary solo for a long time. I remember going through the first over and over just to practice when it was the only option. Halo has made a huge impact. I was kinda sad to see this being lower than reach's but it makes sense. Don't remember halo 2 being that hard but I will find out in a few days when I play through it again. I don't really view it as hard but as a different gameplay entirely and when i go back to normal I just feel invincible. Takes alot of time though. (for me)

Comment #46 by R4piD RevolveR

Im ready for this done all halo's solo legendary. A real challenge was getting to +5 on dark souls.

I hate these achievments. The only one i didn't get in CE anniversary was this one.

Comment #48 by xUnseenx
Sunday, October 21, 2012 @ 08:58:21 PM

Just saying I pride myself in doing legendary playthroughs by myself. Easy cheevo. Did 1,2,3,ODST, and Reach by myself, so I assume I most likely can do this.

The best part of all the Halo games is beating them on Legandary with alone. It would be nice if they had for all skulls, maybe a DLC

Hey, I know this might sound a bit off topic but does anyone know if you can get the fotus armor in-game and not get the console? or would I need to pay over $50? Thanks

Tuesday, October 23, 2012 @ 02:17:57 PM

This will be one of my major task and a big achievement that I will be working on when i start my first time playing Halo 4....

My Achievement task : Lone Wolf Legend-
Completed the Campaign solo on Legendary difficulty.

Comment #53 by youdaboss4ever
Tuesday, October 23, 2012 @ 08:45:43 PM

Im highly looking forward to this achievement. I really do hope 343 makes it more challenging then reach :)

Comment #54 by the splitter 96
Tuesday, October 23, 2012 @ 09:09:41 PM

Well i think this is the first halo game i will attempt this on. beat about half of reach on legendary by myself, but got a little too frustrated in areas. Definantly want to get it for this game though.

Comment #55 by Drop The Remote
Wednesday, October 24, 2012 @ 03:40:03 PM

I don't see any of these lone wolf achievement even hard. Hopefully this one will be a little more challenging!!

Comment #56 by dgripper05
Wednesday, October 24, 2012 @ 04:15:13 PM

hope its as easy as Halo Reach legendary, if i want challenging, ill add skulls, i want to enjoy the story and game without it being stupid easy and i think halo reach legendary solo was perfect

Comment #57 by rknb117
Friday, October 26, 2012 @ 06:12:25 AM

Hopefully its similar to H3 legendary, quite challenging, but not as difficult as H2.
And for the record, I've done all the Halos, including Halo Wars, on solo legendary, so I have the credentials! :)

Comment #58 by S1rJ0hn0fY0rk
Tuesday, October 30, 2012 @ 11:31:35 AM

Why oh why do I feel a migraine coming on at the thought of doing yet another one of these? Oh well, no sense in breaking tradition now. And yes, all previous campaigns have been completed solo on legend...I just hope a couple of friends are doing the same thing and feel like being in a party. Always makes one feel better knowing that you're not alone in the rage department :)

Comment #59 by Ififallx
Tuesday, October 30, 2012 @ 03:08:08 PM

Separate solo and co op achievements? I only see one coop achievement... Beating one mission coop. Unless im wrong ?? Idk

Comment #60 by MyRifleIsBroken
Thursday, November 01, 2012 @ 01:34:13 PM

@59 Look at the VERY VERY bottom of the whole list and you will see the co-op campaign beat on heroic or higher acheivement

NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!! I thought I was done with Reach! Curse you 343!!! sighhh, guess I have to buy a few more controllers for backup.

I'm intimidated by this. I got Reach's solo. Wasn't easy. I'm pretty sure this will be a harder game too. I guess it's time to test my Halo skills again.

Comment #64 by Crims0nPenguin
Sunday, November 04, 2012 @ 03:40:37 PM

Gonna let you know the legendary difficulty in this game is comparable to that of Halo 2...

Comment #65 by euvi
Sunday, November 04, 2012 @ 06:35:10 PM

I don't see myself doing this achievement. I never did the solo achievement on reach. I shouldn't have to beat it twice. It's not as fun solo...

Comment #66 by cooltoast
Monday, November 05, 2012 @ 12:03:22 AM

I think some people on here are assuming they can get this through co op but just to save those people from a huge controller throwing mistake it must b done SOLO

Comment #67 by Ulcer9mm
Monday, November 05, 2012 @ 07:55:22 AM

So I got this a day early with the Halo 4 console, I've burned every Halo game on solo legendary and this is ROUGH! Two shotted by elites, 3 or amazing nades by grunts... I'm on mission 2 and am getting quite annoyed with it! It's definitely on par with Halo 2 legendary if not harder and I haven't event come across knights yet! Good luck all, I forsee a fair few broken controllers as a result of this one!

Comment #68 by DESTROYY

This one was pretty easy. The only enemy that really pissed me off were the Knights since they take so many hits.

Comment #73 by RocketBee873
Tuesday, November 06, 2012 @ 03:37:08 PM

Im guessing this will be easy because reach had a acheivement for beating alone and it was easy

Comment #74 by DESTROYY
Tuesday, November 06, 2012 @ 04:16:24 PM

@70 you can hardly say its easy mate. I'm a pro gamer and have beat the best of the hardest out there. This is still way tough, although yes I am getting through it on solo legendary. But there's just no way you can call it easy. Fool!

Comment #75 by I Entropyy I
Tuesday, November 06, 2012 @ 05:51:22 PM

Can anyone tell me why, when I complete a mission on legendary, it shows up in the co-op section of the campaign mission selector and not the solo section?

I've completed all missions so far with no help from anyone else.

Comment #76 by xSnake713x
Wednesday, November 07, 2012 @ 12:00:20 PM

Yes I know this is not a easy task!! I'm in the six mission now and man I have to take a chill break for a few mins,cuz its alot of skill just to get through a area

Comment #77 by RedSoakedSponge
Wednesday, November 07, 2012 @ 02:42:22 PM

this is pretty tough! i find it a struggle killing a knight when i cant find a rifle. with a rifle the knights are a LOT easier.

Comment #78 by rbodden89
Wednesday, November 07, 2012 @ 03:15:16 PM

I revel in the fact that the individuals claiming that this was a joke or easy don't even have their tags linked...

Wednesday, November 07, 2012 @ 07:13:33 PM

@78 my gamertag is El Grunto 14. I've had issues linking my gamertag and no one has offered any help when I've asked for it.

Comment #80 by El Grunto 14
Wednesday, November 07, 2012 @ 07:14:37 PM

@77 get a suppressor for killing knights close range if you don't have or can't get a scattershot.

Comment #81 by Flandre Scarlet
Wednesday, November 07, 2012 @ 07:25:44 PM

This achievement's gonna be insane, I had trouble on heroic, but to do this on Legendary alone is just hellish. Elites can pound on you and you can't do nearly as much to them. Your shields get low with maybe one or two plasma rounds and they just LOVE to throw grenades. All I can give for advice is to only shoot when necessary and take your time. ALOT of it.

Comment #82 by El Grunto 14
Wednesday, November 07, 2012 @ 07:29:56 PM

@81 some people prefer the autosentry but I always used a hardlight shield when it was available because to me having immediate cover is more valuable than an extra gun that serves as a short distraction. As for the elites, use a carbine, BR, DMR, magnum, light rifle, or really anything that has a powerfull scoped shot. If you can nail headshots you'll make quick work of elites.

Comment #83 by Flandre Scarlet
Wednesday, November 07, 2012 @ 07:41:41 PM

@82 yeah, I've been trying to nail my headshots whenever I can, but damn they love hiding behind cover right at that last shot. The first mission was a bitch for me just because I lacked any good headshot weapon and there was a lack of ammo completely. and likely, I'll take the autosentry, it came in handy on heroic, it'll likely do the same on legendary.

Comment #84 by xSnake713x
Wednesday, November 07, 2012 @ 08:17:11 PM

Yes it is a hard challenge!!! I just done it for my first play through!!!! :-) badass game!

Comment #85 by steb9780
Thursday, November 08, 2012 @ 05:45:04 AM

I have found so far that elites just seem to go down that little bit easier with the promethean weapons. Seems to get through the shields quicker. Also the knights go down easy with e scattershot rounds up close or a clip of suppressor. I have tried picking knights off from distance and they take ages to kill. So I have been taking out the rest of there friends then getting in close and hitting the knights up close, after chucking an auto-sentry out to distract them.

Comment #86 by VyzieTaur
Thursday, November 08, 2012 @ 07:39:36 AM

I found Reach a challenge on solo legendary and I'm sure I'll find this one too. Damn sure gonna drag my ass through it though...and it'll make it more of an achievement when I'm successful :)

Comment #87 by S1rJ0hn0fY0rk
Thursday, November 08, 2012 @ 07:53:43 AM

I have just three words in regards to this. Those three words are not what you're thinking, they are SON OFA BITCH. This is gonna be a lot harder than I thought...damn crawlers

Comment #88 by CALIBORS

Done & Dusted, only gotta do halo wars on legendary now :(

typical halo game giving me the achieves and then saying I havent completed 2nd level on legendary & I cant select Missions to go find the terminals...

looking forward to easy difficulty and wasting Knights and elites blinfolded though :)

Comment #89 by smashingrascal
Thursday, November 08, 2012 @ 04:14:19 PM

I'm kinda looking forward to this. I'm doing the campaign on heroic co-op first so I can't just go play every mission solo right away. See if I can put my SWAT skills from Reach to the test.

Comment #90 by Ulcer9mm
Thursday, November 08, 2012 @ 04:54:59 PM

Done, mission 8 = brutal sooooo many knights!! Auto sentry + DMR/laser rifle + suppressor is the only way to roll!

Comment #91 by PJN47H™
Thursday, November 08, 2012 @ 05:41:01 PM

Just finished the campaign!
I liked to pick off the enemies from afar with a scoped weapon, however long it took. Also if available, I'd go back to a previous area, pick up a decent weapon that I didn't mind spraying the ammo around with (i.e a needler), kill the enemies then go pick my old weapon back up.

The part with banshee in that small cave is a fecking pain! Getting shot at from all directions..

This was SUPER easy compared to Bungie Halo games.
Make sure you have some sort of headshot weapon on you at ALL times. It make crawlers, grunts, jackals, watchers a breeze. I recomend the Light Rifle because Forerunner ammo is EVERYWHERE.
When fighting Forerunners, leave the Knights for last. They're much easier to kill when no one else is around. Target the watchers first, if you're quick enough they won't spawn turrets and crawlers. Use your secondary to take out their shields and then BOOM, headshot.
Also, the stupid grenade that knights drop is awesome if you use it right. Try getting a direct hit and then shoot the crap out of them. The grenade will do a lot of damage but their quick to leave the sphere.
This same strategy goes for Covenant. Headshot grunts and

jackals before moving on to elites. Pick up a plasma pistol and take out their shields for a headshot.
Your secondary weapon may be tricky. When you find power weapons, use them quickly but on elites, knights, or vehicles. Because ammo is so dense you'll always find a good secondary weapon so use them while you can.
When you are playing a level with a lot of Forerunners, pick up the suppressor. Crawlers drop this weapon so you'll always have ammo for it.
Sorry this is such a long post but it using these strategies is what made it so easy for me.

Level requiem has a glitch do watch out for that. (the huge ship that is supposed to shoot a green beam for u to ride sometimes doesn't work so u have to start all over. Sometimes that ship doesn't show up. Really made me mad realizing that it failed to progress further. Also it is a good Idea to use forerunner guns on the knights even the supressor

I haven't tried it yer, but can anyone compare this to the Halo Reach legendary solo? The Reach one was kinda annoying but wasn't all that difficult once you figured out the enemies patterns. I was wondering if this was the same way and if anyone had any tips? Thanks.

Halfway done, very challenging but not impossible. One charged-shot from Crawlers result in an instant kill, that's the most frustrating part. Patients and sniping will get you through most of it.

And be careful when using the incinerator cannon...I kept dying due to the bouncing effect left behind. Otherwise, not as difficult as I once thought, some problem areas yes as is in all of them, but reach had areas more difficult to get past than this. Longest I spent in one spot...30 minutes, thank you to the knights

Overall it wasn't as bad as I thought it would be. Play through it first on heroic to understand the new weapons and level design. It will help a ton since you already know what to expect.

Hardest part for me was on Mission 8 with the Crawlers. I chose to try and wait it out and kill them as they came to me, turns out they never stopped spawning and eventually the defense turrets go down and you're left alone. After 20 minutes of dying I chose to make a break for the portal, running past 10 or so Crawlers. I used my Hardlight shield for the entire duration, got lucky and made it through the portal.

Comment #112 by SeducingPinata
Thursday, November 15, 2012 @ 05:07:49 PM

Hardest part for me was in Mission 3. The area where there are all those Banshees and Ghosts. I didn't actually find mission eight that bad. When you get to rally point charlie go right instead of left and get an incineration cannon. Only use it for higher level knights, take down their shields and LightRifle them in the face.

You can also use the noob combo v2: Charged up boltshot, and light rifle. You have to get close though.

Last thing: Sentry Turret is dope in campaign.

Comment #113 by Reckkful
Friday, November 16, 2012 @ 02:56:23 PM


Is that the part when the Elite runs for the Banshee? That part took me well over 30 minutes to complete, it was such a pain.

I tried starting off in the Banshee but you get blown up in seconds with the other Banshees and everything on the ground shooting at you. I got through it by using a Ghost to splatter anything I could, I just circled the map and took cover in a cave whenever my shields dropped. After most of the enemies on the ground were cleared I started to destroy the objectives. Then when I could progress I grabbed a Banshee and flew up to the exit.

I only used the Sentry Turret on Mission 8. Really helped to distract the Knights.

When I got the game , first thing i did was campain on Legendary. Liked it a lot and it was extra hard because i didnt know where to go at some points so making it easier to get shot in the butt. But still with just a few deaths and 1-1,5 hours gametime for each mission it was really a fun achievement to get.

Comment #115 by poig
Sunday, November 18, 2012 @ 07:27:06 AM

This has been one of the hardest for me on solo and I've still got to do the last mission. Every mission takes a long time to take out all the enemies. I'm sure the majority of people finding it easy are speed running past most of the fights. Play it like a champ guys and take them all out. It's harder and takes longer.

Got it staying up till Sunday 2am. Definitely doable, but not impossible. Those Knights are a pain, especially the ones with the Binary Rifle. Light Rifle was my most used weapon, with Auto Sentry. Incinerator Cannon was perfect for Knights on Mission 8. Mission 5 "Reclaimer" is glitched; wait for Mammoth to stop moving before targeting the 2nd Particle Cannon.

This achievement wasn't bad at all. Personally, the difficulty didn't really seem like Legendary compared to the other Halo games. Auto Sentry will definitely be your best friend and all of the individual mission achievements are also doable on legendary except for Bros to the Close. I still need to work on that achievement.

Dude mission 3 where you have to pilot the banshee was just insane.... Best advice i can give is

Run over the elite with the ghost

IMMEDIATELY get in the banshee and hit the banshee coming at you with a goo missile

strafe to your right in the banshee and immediately take out the ghost with another goo missile

Haul ASS towards the sky till the shooting at you dies down (there are a few sweet spots where you have enough breathing room to charge your sheilds but keep an eye on those other banshees, don't let them ge

Comment #126 by Vagrant
Wednesday, November 21, 2012 @ 05:34:45 AM

don't let them get behind you)
Take out the banshees (Know where that other ghost is at all times)
Circle around the area in the sky and occasionally swoop down just enough to shoot a missile at the various hordes on the ground. Immediately swoop back up and recharge sheilds.
Once you thin the ranks out a bit go ahead and land and CAREFULLY take out the covenant near whatever generator thingy is populated the least.
Take out the generator and you should get checkpoint... It should be easier from here on out
*If you're banshee gets beat up while your thinning out the ranks on the ground land over by the other one and swap it out. (If it gets beat up before you take out the ghosts and banshees then you're already screwed dude)

I have a love hate relationship with legendary. The challenge is awesome and forces you to really come up with a gameplan for each battle. Not to mention your execution and reaction time will improve pretty significantly. The problem I have with legendary is sometimes It seems like your survival in certain battles just depends on chance or luck.

like "Oh hey I didn't do anything different really I just didn't get one shotted in the face by a random sniper this time or blown to hell by a plasma grenade holocaust"

Comment #129 by MadBrok
Wednesday, November 21, 2012 @ 10:11:38 AM

First couple of levels were easy mode, but the Prometheans were a challenge. Tips; always use a boltshot on crawlers (if you're a good aim) as there is pretty much unlimited ammo lying around. Autosentry packs a decent punch on shielding and provides a great distraction, whereas hardlight shield slows you down, stops shields from recharging, and on legendary flails hard against promethean nades. Always have a headshot-capable rifle handy, and use a scattershot when you can (3 hits max KO).

Inferno cannons are great and capable of taking out a group of knights at once, and although binary rifles will absolutely destroy YOU they are not worth depending on; low ammo, slow fire rate, inaccurate and actually take a fair bit to kill the average knight.

Comment #130 by MadBrok
Wednesday, November 21, 2012 @ 10:13:38 AM

@Vagrant you don't need to get in the banshees... to be honest getting in one is a liability and will make things hard. Kill the elite running to a banshee, pick up a plasma pistol from somewhere, EMP and jack/plasma nade the banshees. That way the grunts/jackals won't EMP you, and you won't get torn to pieces by everything else.

Reach and 3 were both hard. 3 with the Flood areas and Reach with all the 1 on 5 Elite battles(last level). The fact that Reach had an extra health bar helped a little. Neither though are nothing compared to CoD World at War Veteran especially Heart of the Reich(Flak 88s) and Downfall.

Reasonably difficult campaign, but very doable if you take your time and think about your moves, etc.
the only mission that was an absolute pain was Mission 3 with the banshees, got through it by boosting to the central spire, then shooting out a sphere and having a 'safe' checkpoint.

Comment #140 by Havok1496
Sunday, December 02, 2012 @ 01:46:39 AM

@139 you can play other missions on co-op it won't change your achievement progression. As long as you beat the mission it counts it doesn't matter if you do them one at a time or you decide to skip around. Do them on live if you want the master chief armor for online though. You have to be connected to waypoint for it to count. My advice for this achievement take your time, go back for weapons especially if they are weapons that are good for head shots. So battle rifle, DMR, beam rifle, Covenant Carbine etc if an enemy dropped those and you left them go back if you run out of ammo. Also, auto turret makes a great armor ability because of the help it gives and because it is a distraction. I always tried to thin the herd when playing so take out the grunts and jackals first then go for elit

Well since nobody else on here is being helpful...
-to answer my own question, YES it does work to load the furthest rally point. I had first played through the entire campaign on Normal so I could enjoy this beautiful game. But playing through on Legendary was taking me forever. I only had the last two levels left before I decided to look up strategies. So I loaded up rally point bravo, Legendary, on the second to last level and played through it. Then I loaded up rally point Charlie, Legendary, on the last level and crawled my way through it. At the end, all three achievements popped (Heroic, Legendary, and Legendary Solo) AND I unlocked all the MARK VI armor and to answer @#155 @Jplato09, NO you do not have to do it twice.

So after I did this, I received the biggest patch of achievements ever. If you're starting in the game, just start the campaign on Legendary. Try to do the level specific achievements on the way, and when you get to the end, you will not only get the Lone wolf and Legend of 117, you will also get the complete the campaign on heroic and normal. On top of that, you will gain the 8 level achievements and if you have the pacience, get all the terminals.
That will be a big step towards you getting all the achievements in this game. Then just go on to Spartan Ops.

cant believe i done this cheevo haha best to take your time most missions took up to a hr or so its not as hard if you go through on Normal/Heroic first then you know where to go so i was able to do the harder objectives first then do easier ones, stay back use ranged weapons when possible, using plasma pistol to take elites shields down then using DMR/BR/Pistol to Headshot them once helps alot for knights it can be different most times i used alot of weapons just to take one down if you can get the launcher they carry around that can kill them in one.

The Composer for me was probably the hardest because of the banshees but I played a song to stay in the mood same name of the cheevo "I Need a Hero" :P music can help most times GOOD LUCK! :)

Beat the campaign tonight on legendary by myself after going through on heroic and I strongly recommend doing that first if you are not firmilar with the difficult Halo settings it helped me tremendously .

Best advice:
1.take your time
2.realize your going to die "A LOT"- attack enemies from cover!!
3. If you get a check point and your surrounded by enemies jump out and attempt to kill them all quick cause what's the worst that could happen?
4.try things you've never done before
5. Use every weapon to your advantage
6. MOST IMPORTANTLY : look for power weapons hidden around the maps . You'd be surprised how many times I found a great weapon that I could use right at that moment I desperately needed it.
AGAIN: take it at your own pace and enjoy the game I loved it !:)

If the exploit glitch still works, is there any good guides on the last checkpoints on all the missions?

loading the last checkpoint does still work. i just did rally point bravo on dawn then went back and checked and it said legendary! i will say i did a challenge doing legendary mission with mythic,tilt,thunderstorm, and tough luck skulls and that was a nightmare. elites took forever to die. then playing on regular legendary without skulls it was a cake walk. but the glitch still works

So I just used the "exploit" and got the achievement... But I did not get the MJOLNIR Mark-VI armor unlock for use on online multiplayer. And I also did not get the legendary visor unlock as well. Not sure if this is due to the "exploit" or due to some system glitch. Am kinda upset though. Anyone with same situation or remedy PM me at GT Generalg94

^ Same Here, and I didn't even use the "Exploit"

It says I haven't done the Composer one on Legend, but I did, and entirely on solo.

glitch on the third mission- when you see the first hunter picking up the rocket launcher triggers it off otherwise the first one stands still and lets you shoot it. I don't know of it works every time though

I finished and played a lot of Halo games
I finished Halo: Reach, Halo Combat Evolved(Anniversary) and Halo 3 on Legendary. I am working on Halo 4 at the moment and soon, probably, Halo 2 and Halo 3 ODST. Halo Wars.. I got that game but fuck it. In my opinion, till now, Anniversary was the easiest and Halo 4 the hardest(till now). And there is one level in Halo 3 which I defenitely found discusting and difficult: The level 'Cortana'. The High Charity Flood level(7th level of Halo 3 I believe). Unbelievable. You need much patience to finish that one :P

Confirmed, I just finished the last level using the exploit, and even with today's small update, it still gave me the achievement. I also got the Mark-VI armor unlocked, so not sure what the problem is for 185 and 186. The exploit made it a whole lot easier, and so much shorter, to obtain.

So can we confirm, today, after patch earlier this month, that Legendary exploit still works? Using no skulls, having completed the game solo on Normal, and starting from final checkpoints?

Please confirm #192's question. I have 4 levels to go and don't even want to try the exploit if it's a waste of time.

I'm working on this achievement right now but I don't want to use the glitch, I just got the achievement for one mission with three skulls on. My question is can I turn the skulls off and start from level two or will I have to start all over again and keep going through "continue campaign" in order to get the cheevo?

Thanks in advance

Comment #207 by RaiRiku
Tuesday, July 09, 2013 @ 07:14:28 PM

Just got this game, and I'll crack on with it on Legendary as always. Heard some says it's hard. The hardest I've played on Legendary was Black Ops one the tunnel section on Executive Order, Argghhh!!! How does it compare to that, anyone?

This is the first Halo that I've attempted to play on Legendary by myself. At first I found it difficult...due to the run-n-gun nature of the game. Then, I stopped rushing into the battle (as you can do on Normal or Heroic), hung back a bit, picked enemies off one-by-one, from a distance. It was a lot of fun playing a great game differently than I'd usually play a game like this.

One tip I've not read or seen much about...using the Needler on Elites. It works amazingly well! Most people like to go with an overcharged Plasma Pistol and then finishing them off with a head-shot. On Legendary, you're rarely going to get close enough to an Elite and there's only about a 50/50 chance that you're going to hit them with an overcharged burst. They either stick you with a grenade, melee you or do

They either stick you with a grenade, melee you or dodge the hit altogether.

I found the Needler far more efficient. That and the Covenant Carbine seem to be the way to go. When I got stuck at any point in the game, I watched different videos of other people's play-through to see how they did it. It was helpful to show me what I was doing wrong (or differently).

Comment #222 by Hirouakan
Friday, May 09, 2014 @ 10:27:56 AM

Totally agree with @219. Im not a skilled Halo player, but it wasn't as hard as people make it to be.
It just takes patience, something that most people here is lacking as it seems.

Take your time, rush only when possible, pick enemies from afar whenever you can and if you keep dying in one spot, try different aproaches.

With time you'll get the achievement. Just keep trying.

It doesn't matter if you use the exploit or not. The end result is always: ACHIEVEMENT!! Yes, the exploit still works. Had to do it b/c I have others games to 100% before moving on to others. Best way for a sweet 200G

Does using the exploit unlock "The Legend of 117" too?

I have completed all other Halo campaigns solo Legendary except Halo 4, so although I feel very dirty I'm considering doing it the easy way since I have a kid incoming and don't have much time nowadays... Plus that I'll probably want to do it solo Legendary in Halo MCC anyway

Comment #226 by ChrisHavok17
Saturday, July 25, 2015 @ 01:10:54 PM

I'm on my way to this achievement right now, so far I'm on the level Infinity and I got to say, it's pretty easy but not as easy as Reach was. You'd think the Prometheans would be tougher but nope, the Covenant are where it's at in and it makes the process much more infuriating.

I've played ODST, Halo 3 on Legendary with three friends and reach both myself and with buddies. And since this is a new account, I need to find a team to redo the campaigns on Legendary. Not Reach though, I challenged myself to do it in a day and I did it (yes I'm very proud).

Lame. This is an automatic extra bonus for ending the campaign at the hardest skill . 70 point, + 90 with that.
