Halo: Combat Evolved Anniversary

Halo: Combat Evolved Anniversary Achievements

How Pedestrian

Complete the level “Halo” on any difficulty without entering a vehicle.  

This is going to be a long mission, but with no enemy vehicles to worry about vehicle firepower isn’t necessary anyway. Get ready for a long walk though. The only issue you’re come up against is a large gap in the first part of the tunnel after getting the warthog drop. The only way across is to grenade jump across. Be sure to have a frag or plasma grenade handy to do this because you aren’t going anywhere otherwise.

In Co-op, you can have one player drive the warthog will allow the other person to eventually teleport over the gap without having to grenade jump, making this slightly easier.

Wouldn't this be impossible because you need the Warthog to jump the gap when you first enter the cave "that is not a natural formation".

It is possible in co-op if another player drives the Warthog and you get warped.

Or, they have redesigned the cave!?

Oh jeez, that's alot of walking. Probably the biggest map in an halo game. Or at least one of them.

Jet pack maybe??

no need for a jump, its a light bridge you need to turn on

@9 The jump before the bridge. Its when cortana says she's picking up covenant chatter.

Stand on hog in co-op without entering=) Or any other vehicle if possible.

@11, and how would you get said warthog into the tunnel without driving it?

Comment #13 by Infection Ftw
Saturday, October 15, 2011 @ 01:33:54 PM

As I said co-op. Let someone else drive and lift on top. If you played a lot of Halo 2 online in the past then you might have seen/done yourself to place a bunch of people on the Hog without entering. Or Halo: CE on the PC online. I played both to death.

It's been a while but doesn't that path just loop around and pass through the gap you jump?

Comment #15 by WartyHogger

Well, here's the level walk through on the original game.
Part is at 1:02.

Just grenade jump it. This can be played on any diffculty.[I'm guessing not easy though, as easy mode never allows achievementss]

Once you're done to save time just snipe your allies on the mountains and then
betray the rest inside the infastructure. This is a piece of cake, just long.

I'm more worried about some of the other achievements on solo.

Comment #17 by Spartanwarninja
Saturday, October 15, 2011 @ 07:05:58 PM

My bads just read 'on any diffuclty' In that case, I guess it will be even
easier then.

Comment #19 by Tarvu
Sunday, October 16, 2011 @ 12:27:59 AM

I can confirm, I have done this level without Warthogs back in the day and you can grenade jump it. I did it in the first place to avoid saving the Marines, it can be preferable on higher difficulties.

Comment #20 by DisturbedPsic0
Monday, October 17, 2011 @ 01:59:47 PM

I thought that jump was just a shortcut. If you don't make it can't you keep going along that path and still make it without a jump?

@8 your kidding right

To the people suggesting coop. The reason everyone else is ignoring the suggestion is probably because they played Reach and there was a similar achievement for the first level. If anyone got in a vehicle it cancelled it for the entire group. It would be wise to assume the same rule applies to the very next game, even if it is developed by a different studio altogether.

Comment #23 by MoneyFCMike92
Saturday, October 22, 2011 @ 02:55:56 PM

@Tarvu, that's what I thought. I remember when I tried that level on heroic, I just said screw it and tried to advance forward. Well, all the marines died, and I didn't feel like spending what felt like hours battling the enemy just for a warthog. At that time (it was years ago), I never knew about grenade jumping, and I didn't have internet back then to figure that out.

But, these achievements seem to be fun, and I know that a couple of these will be kinda challenging for me (looking at you, legendary difficulty; I've only beaten 2 levels on legendary on my own, the first and last levels), but I'm up to it.

you can gernade jump the cave but it also means it gonna take like an hour to finish the map

Comment #25 by Tyhon
Sunday, October 30, 2011 @ 08:36:20 AM

@16 Actually ODST allowed achievements on easy....
We'll see what the main menu will tell us.

Furthermore they probably made the level so that you don't have to do that jump. I mean they put skulls and terminals in as well so they probably altered the levels to achievement ready :).

I'm also more worried about the time but since this can be done co-op and every halo can teleport the other players you might even get this done pretty fast with atleast 3 people (2 for the warthog, saves time :) )

Comment #26 by guy298
Friday, November 04, 2011 @ 07:16:34 AM

when I was playing the original game, on halo, I some how skipped the encounter
that drops the warthog, so I went through the whole level with out it.

Comment #27 by Johiden
Monday, November 07, 2011 @ 03:25:59 PM

Did anyone forget that they might have done something this the part so you can get across in the HD version. So you might not have to grenade jump.

Comment #28 by Johiden
Saturday, November 12, 2011 @ 02:02:26 AM

Well after viewing the video from the play through on this level, via gamespot, there is nothing added to the area. So ummm looks like you have to grenade jump over.

Comment #29 by Dropped
Saturday, November 12, 2011 @ 02:41:48 PM

It is plausible that 343 could have hidden a ghost in the level, right?

Comment #30 by FREELANCER
Monday, November 14, 2011 @ 07:43:27 PM

i can confirm that you can just use a grenade (plasma grenade) jump to get through

Comment #31 by Vincentnvl
Tuesday, November 15, 2011 @ 02:49:31 AM

I just did this in Halo cea, i used a grenade jump from on top of the ramp. Also the level did take as long as i thought it would by foot.

Comment #32 by Spug
Tuesday, November 15, 2011 @ 02:46:57 PM

I just made the grenade jump (with a frag grenade) and it wasn't exactly hard to do.

Just remembered that I did enter the Warthog when Foehammer dropped it though, but I reloaded the checkpoint. I hope the game doesn't "remember" that I entered the Warthog? If someone has done the same thing and knows that I'm fucked, please let me know - I'd rather not run through the whole level and not have the Achievement pop...

Also it would be nice if someone could confirm whether or not we can get Achievements on Easy in this game :) (Playing on Normal on this one, but there are a couple that would be way easier on Easy, obviously!)

Comment #33 by jdogg2k9

your just supposed to grenade jump across. here is a youtube vid that explains
where to throw the grenade.

Comment #34 by Clidebytor
Tuesday, November 15, 2011 @ 05:05:31 PM

I can CONFIRM you can get this while playing on easy. You DO have to grenade jump but it's not too bad with a little practice.

Comment #35 by Vintage91
Wednesday, November 16, 2011 @ 07:03:02 AM

@34 That video helped out a lot. I'm still not used to the old plasma grenade and how long it takes to explode, so the frag worked a lot better. It was very annoying to have to walk the entire level, but it's worth it.

Comment #36 by Otoooo
Wednesday, November 16, 2011 @ 07:26:55 AM

Just with a little bit of timing plasma granade works equally as well as frags. The level itself was pretty easy on legendary as soon as you acquire sniper, from the second crash site.

Comment #37 by Sicho
Wednesday, November 16, 2011 @ 10:02:34 AM

I can confirm that if you play on co-op and have one person jump the gap in the warthog, the other person can still gain the achievement.

Comment #38 by Shadow XBL
Wednesday, November 16, 2011 @ 12:20:38 PM

Grenade jump it. No problem. Even if only one person has a plasma, they can go ahead and then just warp you up.

Comment #39 by dickiesmusic

I Used A Plasma Grenade To Make The Jump!

I used a Plasma Grenade to make the jump.

Comment #41 by Kyl3Ruth
Thursday, November 17, 2011 @ 09:42:11 PM

This is a simple simple grenade jump. Also, you can do this on easy, it still gets the achievement.

Comment #42 by G3ARJAMM3R 379
Friday, November 18, 2011 @ 12:37:13 PM

i did coop and had my team mate go over the jump in the warthog, then killed myself and then i respawned on the other side.........easy :)

Comment #43 by Galiant
Friday, November 18, 2011 @ 04:26:01 PM

#15s video doesnt work for this achievement. They used a warthog, so its pointless. #34, however, has a good link for this achievement that actually shows how to get across with a grenade.

Comment #44 by evildeceptacon
Friday, November 18, 2011 @ 10:33:59 PM

34 has a good video if needed help

Comment #45 by SN1P3R VIPER
Sunday, November 20, 2011 @ 01:19:26 AM

Nothing like spending an hour of running on foot. And many priory are correct grenade jump is only way. I suggest frags as if your doing heroic setting. The stickies cause more dmg on mistimed jump.

Comment #46 by Rafter88
Sunday, November 20, 2011 @ 02:46:20 AM

Just did this on solo guys. granade jump does the trick over that gap. Plus there is a terminal just below it :)

Comment #47 by Spug
Sunday, November 20, 2011 @ 08:34:20 AM

#33: To answer myself, I guess entering the Warthog and reloading the checkpoint voided the attempt. The cheevy didn't pop. Oh well...

Comment #48 by Apokalyps Pwny
Tuesday, November 22, 2011 @ 12:46:20 PM

I can confirm that entering the Warthog and reloading voids the attempt. Which sucked when I did that on Heroic. It took half an hour of trying to time a grenade jump with a plasma grenade. If you accidentally get into the Warthog, you have to restart the level from the beginning.

Comment #49 by kms_md
Saturday, November 26, 2011 @ 01:16:07 PM

Do not forget to crouch jump across the chasm with your grenade jump. I kept coming up short and realized my controller was not recognizing my crouch click. I switched controllers and got it no problem.

Comment #53 by AxLeGeAr
Tuesday, December 20, 2011 @ 05:13:52 PM

i feel sorry for everyone who walked the entire thing. i can confirm you can use 2p to drive the warthog and warp you (1p) around for the achievement. did it on easy

Comment #54 by drkwatch
Monday, December 26, 2011 @ 12:29:03 AM

can confirm you can get this on co op if the other person gets in the warthog and warps you only works if its with somebody who has already got it tho

Comment #55 by pelviselvis19
Monday, December 26, 2011 @ 09:04:40 PM

Gotta admit this one made the level pretty damn long, and i didn't read comments for this "thread" but if you all r complaining about the gap in the cave IGN explained it that you just have to grenade jump.... if you cant grenade jump ur retarded...... if ur complaining about how long it is suck it up..... i did this on legendary..... the things that you have too f**king watch out 4 are the goddamn jackals..... i swear to got those things are way too overpowered

Comment #56 by pelviselvis19
Monday, December 26, 2011 @ 09:11:42 PM

by the way I just got the game 2 days ago and its a bitch..... anybody want to achievement boost we could get a huge group together and fly throught the campaign on legendary...... well start from the beginning cuz i have to get a few skulls and terminals..... my gamertag is pelviselvis19..... im only free on thursday.... send me a friend request and we'll work something out..... need at least 3 people...... heads up though...... im only 13 so don't expect some frkn fatass loser who has extreme practice at gaming and whos gotten the monument to all of your sins achievement....... im only free at night though until Tuesday and in the afternoons maybe after that........ if you try to stalk me from where i sent this from you wont be able to cuz i will have caught you and have put a can of whu

Comment #57 by DJH4311
Tuesday, December 27, 2011 @ 02:11:34 PM

Sodding easy achievement or what? lol. I just set the game to normal:

1. Saved the first group to get the hog,
2. Left the hog sat there and just walked.
3. Nade jump over the gap, using sticky nades, with revert to checkpoint to get the timing down,
4. Locate the marine groups, and kill them all.
5. Clear out the last of the enemies from the final section, I recommend doing the cliff side structure last, as they don't get re-enforcements.
6. Foehammer arrives, and bing, achievement pops.

Must have taken me just over 30 minutes to do.

Comment #58 by BurningBlade77
Monday, January 09, 2012 @ 06:58:31 PM

Took me a while. I couldn't do it with the frag grenade (probably still possible) but did it with the sticky. If you place it and then jump as it explodes, it'll propel you across. It's just getting the distance without blowing yourself up or falling down. Didn't try crouch-jumping with a grenade, but that probably makes things easier too.

Comment #59 by Braven10
Saturday, January 14, 2012 @ 03:07:12 PM

Long and annoying, you will need to grenade jump the gap that you normally jump in the warthog. I found frags to be easier for me

If someone were playing co-op and the other person did the grenade jump would i spawn alongside them when they hit a checkpoint? I'm seriously bad at greade jumping and can't seem to do it :(. Looking for a helping hand. Gamertag: xMetalXDeviantx

Comment #62 by Rwalsh
Saturday, November 03, 2012 @ 12:48:01 PM

easy , plug in 2p controller and log 2p in as a guest or some account ,when you get to the jump BY WALKING ALL THE WAY ,2p drives the ramp and jumps over getting the checkpoint spawning you over to 2p . just make sure you don't spawn in the warthog as you will not get the achievement , never has happened to me but you never know. ALSO if you want a terminal, below the jump the yellow flashing light ...GOOD LUCK
