Halo 4 Achievements

Knight in White Assassination

Assassinated a Knight in any Spartan Ops mission.  

Infinity Multiplayer :: Spartan Ops related. Online Required. Can be obtained on Easy+.
When behind a Knight, press and hold  to perform an assassination either Solo or Cooperatively.

You can find a Promethean Knight within Episode 1: Infinity • Chapter 4: Sacred. See Best Chapters for Boosting Enemy Commendations for other Episodes/Chapters with Knights.

It's recommended making a custom loadout with prometheus vision for this achievement.
After completing the first mini objective (activating the switch) you start going back to where you came from and a  Knight will spawn around the corner. You will be informed by a voiceover. At this point, crouch around the corner and use prometheus vision to watch the Knight walk back and forth, as he turns his back towards you, run up to him, and hold  to preform an assassination, unlocking the achievement.

I danced around a knight in a cloak for quite some time before I #facepalmed when I realized the EASIEST way to get the Knight in White Assassination achievement: Plasma Pistol overcharge. When struck with a Plasma Pistol overcharge knights stop what they are doing and start screaming. When shot from melee range, this gives the player Ample opportunity to simply stroll around behind them and, well, "off with their head!"

Did it on Sacred Legendary got award and achievement.
Use active camouflage around the end of the level there are a ton of knights.
Don't let them see you first or they'll shoot you whether camo is on or not.

I followed this one from the guide from comment #5. But I played it on easy I walked up the knight and kept walking backwards around the knight until I got him.

Both unlocked, I'd say make sure you are online for the award to unlock maybe?

For the people who didn't get the award - just go back in Spartan Ops, assassinate another Knight, and you should get the Award. It glitched up on me too, and my trick worked.

Unless you are by yourself this is no biggie.

They should have made this for assassinating a Watcher instead. Much cooler in my opinion.

Took me a few times because it wouldn't unlock.

This shit is glitched... I'm sure it will unlock eventually but I've fucking assassinated at least 5 now.

*Update to #16 ... Should have just watched the video. You need to make sure you do the assasination with the animation involved. You can't just run up and melee them in the back, you have to HOLD RB... not just press it.

I got this one after playing E01C04 a few times with my nephew - he distracted them while I kept running around until I got it.

Got this on E01C04 on easy by running around a knight until he finally turned his back to me.

Surprisingly easy, even on Legendary Solo. Just used the same strategy I use with Elites.

Dammit. I didn't pay attention, and did it during campaign on Infinity- where you pick up the Promethean Vision first. Shit.
