Halo: Combat Evolved Anniversary

Halo: Combat Evolved Anniversary Achievements

Speed Reader

Complete the level “The Library” on Legendary difficulty in 30 minutes or less.

Note: Reverting to the last checkpoint will put your time back to what it was when it saved, so dying has no effect on attaining this achievement in single player.

For most people, this is the equivalent of Reach’s Solo Legendary achievement. This is one of the two biggies that puts the list difficulty rating up for inexperienced players. If you’re lucky, you’ll get this in just a regular playthrough. If you’re familiar with Legendary in the Other Halo titles, you might be able to pull this off in 20 minutes or so. Again, always have a shotgun. I also recommend having the rocket launcher whenever possible. It’s good when they start to pile up. Your best bet is to find a good corner to put your back against and just keep your finger on the trigger. Bulk doors will slow you down automatically. If you don’t have a bulk door, you better be moving forward. The Bandana skull will make this easier because Shotgun ammo can and probably will be scarce at times. The skull eliminates the need for that.

Assuming you don't die too often, having a dummy controller can be beneficial as long as you don't have to back-track too much. Otherwise you're probably better off just trying to solo the level for this achievement.

Current world record time for this level on legendary solo is is 14:25.

The average gamer should be able to finish it with double this time. It's very
doable. Espicially on Co-Op.

@3 ya dude they added in 4 player co-op over XBL

but this achievement actually sounds like one of the easier ones from this game, then ones im dreading are This side up, Tying up loose ends, and He's unstoppable

Those sound difficult to me, this doesnt

Grab the Bandana skull and activate it then boot up the level.

It gives you infinite ammo and grenades, will make it alot easier.

Oh and using the skull DOES NOT disable achievements.

Comment #34 by Tyranid Slayer
Thursday, November 17, 2011 @ 06:36:27 PM

Man it has been a long time since I have done this, hope it doesn't take me very long to warm up lol. I remember soloing this on legendary several times, but also remember getting lost a lot. For some odd reason I would get disoriented and every room started to look the same. Its been a good 8 years so maybe that won't happen now.(I also have a bigger screen too, using a 12' probably hid a lot of the distinctive features that are used to navigate the library.)

Comment #35 by Tyranid Slayer

Me and my friend mrmidas2k need help doing this chiev, weve done it legendary but cant get it under 30 min, tried the grenade jumps etc etc and at the beginning we launched over wall, skipping all fighting but then had to trek back through to get guilty spark which lost time :(

If anyone at all is up for helping us it would be hugely appreciated.

Sure I would be willing to help. When I soloed it i finished in about 35 minutes, and I don't think I could do anything else to speed up the process.

Comment #38 by BlackHeart2401
Friday, November 18, 2011 @ 12:43:51 AM

Bandana Skull + Boom Skull = Easiest achievement of my life. Torn through them and made it through the level with no less than 75% health. Legendary? Hardly a challenge now.

Comment #42 by Misdreavius
Saturday, November 19, 2011 @ 10:02:52 AM

Also got it first try on co-op with my brother. Bandana really makes it easy.

What was surprising though was that I didn't expect to get it, and we got the two skulls and the terminal at the same time, and we kept killing each other with grenades.

To settle this Co-op debate:

It states: 2 player campaign co-op, 4 player firefight

Comment #44 by Emelious91
Saturday, November 19, 2011 @ 04:46:37 PM

I don´t know why so many of you are using the skulls for the achievements. This achievement is not that hard. We did it on first try and were also collecting all the skulls and the terminal. Just killing 1st wave and collecting the shotgun. After that you can just run nearly the whole time. Just kill all the guys with a shot gun or rocket launcher with the shotgun or grenades. The bandana skull is nearly pointless in my opinion because it´s nearly impossible to get out of ammo in this level Oo

Comment #45 by Dropped
Saturday, November 19, 2011 @ 10:36:54 PM

@44 The main reason the bandanna skull is useful is for unlimited grenades. You're right, you won't run out of shotgun ammo, but having unlimited grenades will be a massive help when I try this.

Comment #46 by PackNCheese
Sunday, November 20, 2011 @ 12:07:47 AM

a theory: I think that dying/reverting resets the timer for that segment. The first time we did this our elapsed time was 2-3 minutes over 30 but we still got the achievement

Comment #47 by SN1P3R VIPER
Sunday, November 20, 2011 @ 12:55:16 AM

Ok so this is doable in solo with "bandana" skull active. Using "boom" skull ends badly as the flood you kill in combat form drop frag grenades, as well as the bloat forms explosion radius increases with boom skull. First try was able to do on legendary in 30 min whil picking up skulls and terminal in the level. You will die a good amount but best way is to grenade openings and get through them and keep pushing checkpoints.

Comment #48 by ObligatoryFate
Sunday, November 20, 2011 @ 05:12:30 AM

Not hard, I did this with a friend on first try with BOOM Skull active. Also, this level was always one of my favorites and I never had a hard time getting around….

Hardest achievement in the entire game, and pretty much the only one that gives much of a difficult challenge. Should be fun. Thanks to here I'll be using some skulls when I attempt it though. Bandanna Skull for sure. I imagine Boom would also be a good idea if you keep your distance.

For all you people who struggle to realize its not that hard I’m hear to fill you guys in k first of screw coop you only make it harder second you need to play buy yourself and every time you hit a checkpoint save and quit and go back so you load your last check point third if you die don’t pull your hair out pause the game as your still dead and shut the Xbox off and then there is no harm and it doesn’t count as a death use the bandana skull and don’t put on boom it only messes you up the flood drop grenades so fallow all the steps and time yourself took me one try with this trick on 2 player you have to watch each other’s back and if one of you die you lose it this work!

Comment #82 by HolyHa1fDead
Saturday, December 03, 2011 @ 06:12:48 AM

#46 I'm sure you are right. If you die or revert to a checkpoint, the timer is also reset to the checkpoint.

For that reason I did it solo and reverted to checkpoints if a section didn't go too well.

Hey! I wanted to say that I was just playing through this level, and my time
was probably close to 2 hours, but for some reason the achievement popped!

I can't really say why, I did hit restart mission a lot of times near the start
and at the end I went into the index chamber from behind where the skull is

But if the achievement is glitched maybe someone can figure out the real reason
and make it a tonne easier for everyone!

Me and my bro got it the first time. Pretty much run and shoot the whole time (stick together too of course) Id recommend using a shotgun or plasma pistol because theyre actually pretty affective against the flood. When you have to wait for the monitor to open a door or something get in a corner and take advantage of your grenades, if you have any.

i found this easiest in solo - using the guide posted in the forum.

(even with a death or two - you have plenty of time to complete the run, just learn the timing of the enemies & their patterns + the bandana skull never hurts)

Guys you don't need to do this in co-op. Do this solo for the timer is for some reason resets when you die or something. I died around 35-40 times on my first try and still got the achievement (believe me I was very surprised when I got it for I know I went over the time limit). It is not necessary to find another person for obvious reason in co-op the timer will still continue since your partner still lives.

Comment #120 by Noob in the Sky
Saturday, January 21, 2012 @ 07:50:55 AM

Actually easier than That Just Happened since it only adds up the time between checkpoints, you can die as often as you want and take the time to find out the fastest way to get through. Got it on my first try on Legendary; I advise everyone to do it solo.

Comment #124 by JoolzG23
Saturday, February 04, 2012 @ 07:18:24 AM

I'd say this is nearly impossible solo, without using someone's speed run on youtube for the basis of what your doing and thus needing a couple of grenade jumps at start. Extremely frustrating with multiple self kills, restarts & bad language! Being honest, and without wishing to annoy those gamers out there with a very high ability level (not me) I would say the Bandanna skull is a must too. All hats off to anybody who can do it solo on Legendary in under 30 mins without Bandanna. Probably few & far between.

Sunday, April 01, 2012 @ 08:14:34 PM

This achievement, as daunting as it may seem, is actually fairly easy, even solo. The only prerequisite is the Bandana skull. Frag grenades are essential, as well as picking up the shotgun. Picking up the rocket launcher is nice too. As for the time, the game only counts the times you DON'T die. Basically the times you earn checkpoints. For example, if you spend 5 minutes going for a checkpoint, but die before you get it, but if you spend 3 minutes and do get the checkpoint, the failed attempt is discarded and you actually spent 3 minutes for that portion. Grenade jumping through doors can shed time, plus find any shortcuts possible, for example if you collected the terminal, you know were a couple shortcuts are that could shed a minute or 2. I got the achievement a little under 30 minute

Comment #141 by ChrisOsburn95
Sunday, April 01, 2012 @ 08:16:38 PM

Comment #143 by AntAJ
Thursday, April 05, 2012 @ 01:42:42 PM

actually a lot easier than i first thought! usual tactics really, Bandanna skull is a must and i found boom to be pretty useful, just take ur time and learn where the flood spawn from granades are essential and always keep the shotgun and pistol! pistol is good for the big explodin ones (forget there name!) followed by a grenade.
solo is definately the way to go here as the time from ur last checkpoint to when u die doesnt count!
only took two attempts and was done, each attempt took between 35 and 45 mins depending how many times i died, would of loved to be able to help everyone that keeps messaging me but unfortunately dont have the game anymore! so sorry but no help available from me!

Comment #144 by Blade Runner 07
Saturday, April 07, 2012 @ 08:53:35 AM

Finally got it. Had to do it alone though. After watching a video I got it on my first attempt yesterday. Died a few times but that actually helped as it reset the time back to a checkpoint and saved me seconds wasted on grenade jumps.
This video was by far he most helpful. Fallow his line step by step and you should get it the first time.

Screw this i need someone good that can do it without dying i tried the most used youtube videos but i died once in the second part and lost the fucking shotgun even though i had it BEFORE the checkpoint! And where i spawn they all jump down around and i can't do shit with the assault rifle.

Friday, May 25, 2012 @ 02:49:08 PM

This isn't all that bad of an achievement. With bandana skull on, you have unlimited frags (DON'T USE STICKY NADES, THEY LAST TOO LONG AND CAN KILL YOU), unlimited shotgun, and unlimited assault rifle. Plus, I can confirm that the achievement isn't overall time spent. So if you die/revert to last checkpoint, then the 30 minute timer will give you back your time. Hope this was helpful!

Comment #173 by cooltoast
Monday, July 16, 2012 @ 05:36:13 PM

just got it. Really wasn't as bad as I thought. Definitely helps to have a teammate. Follow the arrows on floor and use bandanna skull. Know the map so you know when you can rush the elevator and when you should sort of take things slow. When you feel a checkpoint didn't go so well or your teammate died very early after a checkpoint--reload or die so checkpoint restarts...having both people alive through the majority of it gives you two guns which means twice the killing and less time it takes to kill and move forward. Hardest part is the very beginning and very end. Every thing in the middle isn't bad.

This one was challenging. It took me about a hour and a half to complete this achievement. It took lots of dying towards the end and it was difficult to find a shogun in the begining. But i managed to get it the first time i tried. My only advice, run when you don't need to fight. And shotgun everyone when you can (while running). At least this is how i manged to to it.

3 elevators , 4 floors (the fourth floor being the top and final run.
On the final 3 floors it is rough , the hardest part in my opinion is the 2,nd to last door opening which the monitor does as its hard to do much due to no space , advice (cant remember the names) would have "infinite ammo skull" and if you're really desperate the "grenades have bigger explosions" skull on and a mate or 2p PLAYING WITH YOU. I have tried the "plug 2nd controller in and complete the mission but failed horibbly at the end by being shot with a rocket launcher. HAVE FUN...

To those of you who set timers just remember that the GAME TIMER resets after you die back to the previous checkpoint time...YOUR TIMER YOU SET DOES NOT! When I did this my timer well stop watch was saying 35:27 but I still got the achievement so don't give up!!!

You can do it solo as long as you have bandana, get a shotgun and rocket launcher and just try to out run everything. If you need to, back track a little bit. The first door I believe you can grenade jump over to skip it. Good luck!

This is one that you'll be better off doing in co-op. I did it with a friend who was an experienced Halo player and new the level really well, just like me; and of course, don't forget the bandanna skull! (I highly recommend you don't use the boom skull as this will cause multiple inconveniences throughout the level.)

The best way we found to do it was to grenade spam enemies in front of us from a good distance, we would quickly look for a shotgun dropped by a combat form. Until you get to the 1st door, you and your partner are better off taking your time and being careful, we found the first part of the level to be the hardest part by far. We proceeded to speed run the entire level once we both had shotguns, we both had them by the time we reached the first door. We used rocket launch

Comment #247 by Plasmateardrop9
Friday, April 18, 2014 @ 11:56:33 AM

(Continued..) We used rocket launchers as a secondary, bear in mind that there are only a couple of enemies throughout the level that use the rocket launcher, both being on the 1st and 2nd floor. By the tine we got to the last door and were going towards the platform we encountered a problem, the number of flood which spawned near the goal of he level became overwhelming. Me and my partner decided to go around the outside of the room and quickly get to the other side of the room. There were no flood here so we ran toward the centre of the platform and the achievement unlocked, all in 24 minutes and my 2nd attempt. This achievement is a tough one and may take a few attempts before becoming successful. However you'll soon pull through and succseed.

Comment #248 by Plasmateardrop9
Friday, April 18, 2014 @ 12:03:17 PM

(Continued..) I also recommend going to the other side of the room when you go through the final door before heading straight to the goal if you're going for "That Just Happened". I was once going for that one, solo, on Heroic and once I had gone through the last door I decided to run for it through the giant number of enemies that were in front of me. I was about 10 metres away from the final goal on the level before being shot-gunned dead in the back by a combat form and throwing my controller in a state of rage, just thought I'd point that out. No one wants to lose everything when they are so close to their target. The same attempt I got "That Just Happened" was when I went to the back of the room and I encountered no problems at all

Got this on my third attempt and each time I did this I got more relentless in understand the blast radius of the explosive flood and battle plans.

First off get the shotgun from one of the monsters but use pistols and grenades till you get one.

Replace your machine gun with a shotgun its very OP against the flood and mid range and can kill em in one or three hits depending on your acuracy, I don't have crazy accuracy so using the shotgun won't be a problem.

The first rocket launcher should be on the 2nd floor where a huge group of armed flood are one of them is carrying a RLauncher, replace your pistol for it.

Now your set!

Only focus on the flood exploders that are in your way and all armed flood since half of them are carrying shotguns and and machine guns these are your

These are your biggest threats on this level as machine gun users can easily drain your health if you run around in the open shooting other enemies like a fool.

Shotgun flood, Can kill you in just 1 to 4 shots (varied on distance and your health)

There is alot of shotgun floods in this level so make sure you keep an eye and ear out for which monster has a shotgun.

Jump over the hill like walls it will obviously save you time also the flood are pretty stupid and slow so they will take the long way to get to you.

DONT USE THE BOOM SKULL: Don't let the game's information think its very useful as for this speed run it can be the cause of alot of accidental chain reaction bomb deaths.

BOOM SKULL, also boosts the strength and radius of enemy explosives including

An especially annoying achievement because, if you fail, you have no accurate sense of how much time you took. Could have been 36 minutes or it could have been 30 minutes, 2 seconds. Unless you have a friend with a stop watch noting the checkpoint times in case you die, it's really hard to gauge your performance. Plus I have a suspicion that pausing the game may not pause the timer. I could have sworn I finished once with at least 5 minutes left and didn't get the achievement. It may have been because I paused a few times to rest but can't say for sure.
