Halo: Reach Achievements

Your Heresy Will Stay Your Feet

Killed the Elite Zealot before he escaped during the 5th mission.

*Must be done on Normal or harder difficulty*
This is done on the mission called "Tip of the Spear". You can start at Rally Point Alpha. After you have cross the bridge with the Warthog, you will hear the AI say that there is a high value target is in the area. An "Elite Zealot". After you go up the stairs and come to a area that you see a turret at the end. Take a left, and this will put you inside of a very large open room. Stay there, and you will see the Elite Zealot come out with a Red Arrow above his head. Kill him quickly and this will be done.

Here's a link to the solution - Tip of the Spear "neutralize enemies inside the mining facility" - courtesy of the boys over at Rooster Teeth.

You really can't miss him - he has a red chevron above his head when you reach the
point in game where he's hiding... When you are on the elevated metal walkway, you'll wind around to a point where you must drop down onto the cement. You can't jump to another location, the only path from here is to drop down - HERE, BEFORE you drop down - look across the site to another elevated section with stairs leading up to it. Behind one of the crates, he'll pop out if you wait a second and look that way - SOUTH - you'll notice the red chevron. Fire at him from this location with the DMR or Needle Rifle. Take him out and score 25G.

Good intel, rsattler! By the way, there is a weapons cache full of assault rifles right before that drop off, so once you see that keep in mind that the drop off is right ahead of you.

I shot the guy on normal mode twice, but didn't get any achievement. Maybe he
needs a headshot?

@5: Yeah that's what I did too. Took the plasma cannon with me from the previous room, and I had him dead before I even realized he was a zealot (I know almost nothing about Halo).

i've tried NOT to get this achievement (after i've gotten it of course)is it even POSSIBLE on Normal and higher? seriously, i waited around for him to leave the area and he never left... so i just shot him because i grew impatient...

He is quite soon after rally point A on Tip of the Spear if anyone is jumping in mid-mission.

From the elevated metal platform, you can jump across onto one of the two steel bars protruding from the other side. Then you can jump straight up (a box will be in your face) and you can get "behind" the elite. I would imagine it's easier to keep him from running away.

Shot him in face until he died. The only way you can mess this up is if you weren't paying attention.
