Halo: Combat Evolved Anniversary

Halo: Combat Evolved Anniversary Achievements

Walk it Off

Complete the level “Pillar of Autumn” on Legendary without picking up a health kit.   

This will be one of the tougher achievements in the game due to the tight corridors of the level. Your biggest saving grace is that there are no jackals on this level and your enemies do not use the Needler on this level. Heroic and Legendary also allow you to use grenades earlier on in the level, so the corridors make frags more effective against enemies. Look for side hallways whenever possible. They can sometimes lead you around certain fights, thus saving you from potential damage.

Well, it's nice of them to make so many achievements co-op friendly.

You can nail 6 achievements in when this level is completed if you do it on coop legendary.

I just hope it's a hold X to pick up health unlike in the original cause you'd have to carefully avoid them =

Ahh... but in what order you get those 6 achievements will indicate if you're the "hero" co-op partner, or the "coattail-rider" partner! Which will YOU be?!!

I"m assuming you can still die and go back a checkpoint.

You can't reload to a checkpoint, it still counts as having picked up a health pack.
Although I am wondering if you are allowed to pick up overshields...?

#12, overshields are likely okay as it doesn't count towards reagining health.
I tried going for this achievement when I play with my brother on co-op; he never got a health pack and I didn't by accident. We both got the same achievemnts but my brother did not receive this one. As a warning, for those of you doing this achievement on co-op, neither one of you should get a health pack for it obviously effects you both. However, the achievement doesn't mention dying, so it MAY be okay when you regain health from respawning.

I kept dying, and I still got this one along with Overshields are for Sissies.

Yep, #16 is true. I did it last night on co-op and you can die as many times as you want. As long you do NOT pick up a health pack, thats the only requirement.

This was almost too easy when when I used the Grunt Funeral skull haha. Got 3 achievements for 85G, Tsatsa, Walk it Off and Overshields are for Sissies :)

i beleve you can reload checkpoint and still get this achievement.

This is such an easy achievement, as well as the overshield one, as long as you play it co-op. You can respawn as much as you want. As long as you don't pick up a health pack, bam. Easy.

It is true that you can link this achievement with 5 - 6 others to boot. If you choose co-op and play on Legendary.

You need to have your player getting the achievement just stay back and let the co-op player do all of the work. The major concern is to avoid getting hit or killed when your co-op partner advances forward and teleports you. Additionally use the bandanna skull to make it essentially a cakewalk.

You may find your game slow and the screen stuck on a black screen if you do choose to chain the achievements together. You need to wait it out and let it process through. Do not reset otherwise you will need to redo it again.

Guys, I need help with Halo CE co-op on Legendary together with other achievements. I got the bandana skull so it'll be easier. Let me know if you want ot coop with me. My gamertag is GC328. Message me on Xbox Live. I'm free most evenings after 7pm (Central)

This was very easy in co-op. The first playthrough my friend got the achievement but I accidentally got too close to a pack I didn't see and they auto pick up if you need health. I let him pick up the health packs so I wouldn't accidentally pick one up by getting too close to it the second playthrough. If needed shoot the player that is clearing the way if he hasn't taken damage so he can pick up the health.

lol me and my buddy kinda cheated this one because after every major fight we would stand behind each other then hit each other in the back, respawn full health and continue without worrying bout health packs since we were full health already.

YES you can die and re-spawn at the checkpoint just don't touch a health-pack!

Comment #29 by emjayen
Friday, May 25, 2012 @ 12:25:23 PM

Yeah... Be very careful about the health packs. Forgot they were picked up automatically, and I accidentally ran over the one when the escape pods are firing. Fuck! lol Still got the overshield one though!

Just wanted to confirm that you CAN get the achievment even if you respawn in co op.

I played with a 2nd dummy player in co op, didn't touch any health kits, and just stormed in and got killed a lot. I still unlocked the achievement at the end.

yea i was pissed. i too thought reverting to last save would fix my accidental walking into a health kit but nope. gonna have to do it again another time. was hjoping to get as many of these done on legendary as possible. lame. whatever it took like 20 min.

Got "Tsanata" and "he's unstoppable" so obviously went through the whole level no deaths no health damage so couldn't pick up a health pack if I tried as had full health and didn't pick up any of the overshields didn't even walk into the covenant docks so how did I not get "overshields are for sisses" and "walk it off" ??? was on solo and had 9 skulls on

This was easy. Play co-op with your freind, let him clear the rooms, and move on. So, so, so, easy!

Got the end of the level using my co-op buddy as a meat shield and I somehow picked a health kit up out of nowhere. Now i have to go back and do this again! >:(

I accidentally walked into one right near the end of the level. Restarted and my heath was still low, but of course the achievement didn't pop. Such BS.
