Halo: Combat Evolved Anniversary

Halo: Combat Evolved Anniversary Achievements

This Side Up

Complete the Warthog ride on the level “The Maw” without being forcibly ejected from your vehicle.  

Just don’t flip the vehicle over. You have plenty of time to spare, so if you’re not sure of a ramp or jump, be safe and take the easy way around. Nothing fancy and this should be cake. At the large jump, I personally find doing a 360 degree spin through the air helps balance the vehicle as it falls, but it's a more advanced trick that takes practice.

Aw man, this one will be fun. Wish there was some kind of achievement to find the hidden grunt here though, that guy was fun.

If its looking like you are gunna flip, surely you could just manually eject yourself from the vehicle

The only part you have to worry about is that one jump. If you land it, you're good to go. It's really not that hard unless you drive perfectly straight and at top speed.

Pull them thumbstick forward instead of backwards. that for some reason helped me.

Do a 360 spin on the big jump. You're guaranteed not to eject out of your seat
if you stick the landing.

This can be done on easy. Just take your time (especially on certain bits) and be sure to straighten up. Even being on a slight angle can ruin everything.

Also make absolute sure that Grunt Funeral and Boom skulls are off (especially Boom)

Even the big jump isn't that hard, just keep looking up (with the right thumbstick)and you'll stick the landing.

If you do fall out, you can 'revert to last save' or die. It doesn't count against you if you go back to the checkpoint. :)

Damn it's all coming back to me now...I was ejected at least a dozen times, made it to the ship with only about 20 seconds left haha! Ah.... I do miss this.

I probably could have got this, but i decided to play around towards the end and try to run over a shade turret. I was thinking this had to be done on legendary =/

Do what comment #12 said. Every time I was ejected, I just restarted from the last checkpoint and tried it again. After a couple of attempts, it was done. Also, don't rush, take your time. Only rush for the next achievement.

Just decelerate after each jump and look up and you land on all fours. And don't catch the ramos on the side

This achievement can be glitched, unless patched soon it should still work, in co-op have your friend drive and you not get in any hog, just sit there, got it on accident because of this

i just did this level for the first time in years, it's by far my favorite part of the campaign. can't believe how much i suck at driving the warthog now compared to then

A relatively easy achievement. Avoid most of the jumps and it shall be yours.

The lack of checkpoints on this part of the mission, and the Warthog is horrible!

Comment #21 by iHazard xD
Wednesday, November 23, 2011 @ 05:06:57 PM

Im now aware that there are no checkpoints; fair enough. Still the Warthog is just wrong, its too slow and decides to flip forward all the time.

this is easy to get

Comment #23 by MyHERO

This is easy. I did it in Co-op just if you fall with the Hog just reload the checkpoint.
With the Achievement with dont tak any Healt Damage Checkpoint spawn....
Will NOT work!

Hopping out when you're about to flip DOES NOT WORK! Hoping it would, because I screwed upone jump, but nope! It probably reads when you flip the Hog that it needs to void the achievement. God I hate that stupid fucking vehicle.

holy crap. so I was an idoit and for my first playthrough on legendary I had boom on in the this level. and I kept dying when the wathogs explode in the beginning but after an hour of trying I got through, and I got this achievement, on legendary, with boom on. that was rediculous.

ya i tried it on legendary with boom on. big mistake after an hour i just gave up and restarted

why don't people njust try it on eaqsy or normal, then the setinalsa and flood cariaier can't kill you or flip you.

PS: don't have the Grunt Funeral Skull onm, if setinals kill them then they explode as you are driving over them.

no effort with two controllers-I used my signed in controller and jumped in a hog and sat there. use dummy controller to get to longsword in a different hog getting ejected as much as you like on the way. you get warped forward a few times and removed from your hog as the dummy profile gets further along but it doesn't matter.

Took a few hours but me and my friend did this on Legendary, at the same time getting "Never tell me the Odds", "The Maw" and the 3 achievements for completing the campaign.
Tips for Legendary!
-know your route, know when and where to slow down and speed up.
-the Sentinels hurt, i recommend going to the left or right in the third area with a large amount of them
-if you have a partner, have him gun down the sentinels. At the very least it will distract them and keep you alive

Comment #31 by Noob in the Sky

If you're going for Never Tell Me the Odds it's pretty much required to not be ejected from the Warthog. It would be more challenging unlocking that but not this achievement.

It's really easy. Just get in the gunner or passenger seat and have your friend drive. That way, if it flips, it doesn't count as you flipping it, and you'll have the achievement at the end.

This was a good achievement, took me a couple tries but was fun doing it.

I fell, literally, on the last fucking jump.

Comment #43 by Legrand
Friday, August 08, 2014 @ 04:06:13 AM

Hopefully this works for anyone else attempting this, but when I went through a second run (while going for Headhunter achievement) right when I screwed up on getting forcibly ejected I immediately paused and resorted to last save then tried again from the beginning of the elevator up to the ship's end when it popped surprisingly enough.

re #33: very recommended. Exit the Warthog when it looks like a flip is starting.
