Halo: Reach Achievements

Tank Beats Everything

Finished the 9th mission on Legendary with the Scorpion intact.

During the 9th mission, you will see the Tank. Enter the tank and go through the level without it blowing up/becoming unusable. It is okay if it takes damage, just cannot be destroyed. Once you reach the familiar bunker, the achievement will unlock. You cannot skip the tank as the tank must reach the bunker.

Pretty easy just be really careful. Get off the Scorpion, place it away from line of fire of course, and just take the enemies down on foot. Only use it when necessary like for the banshees or maybe even the turrets.

Does "intact" mean in one piece? can it be smoking and on fire or will that negate the achievement?

just to clear this up, the achievement pops after you pass a certain checkpoint in the whilst in the tank. you do not need to play the entire mission for this achievement.v the checkpoint is located in the area just before you are forced to get out of the tank to progress with the mission. you must be in the tank at this checkpoint to earn the achievement, if you are not in the tank, you will get nothing, even if the tank is in perfect condition. hope this helps.

I tried it and it does not work if you are not in the tank. Did the whole mission on foot. :(

Best done in co-op. One person drives the tank a safe distance back, everyone else clears the path ahead on foot. Everyone in the game should get the achievement for this.

Mr Chr15topher is right, do it with 3 other friends, and you hang back and help them but not too close, and yes reverting to save should mess it up.

I tried this doing 2 player local co-op, but beware: if you put your wife in the tank and no one is at the will spawn the tank to the front line at some point. I couldn't get to the other controller before it got destroyed!

This acheivement wasn't that hard. Basically, go on foot for the rest of the mission and take out any that get in your path. I had a lot of trouble taking out the turrents and reverants so for them I used the tank but try to take them out as quickly as possible to minimize any damage to the scorpion.

just do it on your own -.- longshot turrets before they start shooting , same for revenants. i succeeded with 1 try.

My friend got this in co-op with me and a buddy, he stayed in the tank, keeping away from the action, while me and the other guy used 2 of the 4 banshees (see youtube) and did everything. I still need to get this.

Got this achievement by accident, I thought it required the scorp to be in perfect condition. But I got it while it was on fire, probably had one shot left to pop. In all honesty, all you have to do is scout ahead and use a little trial and error and it should be easy

You just need to get to sword base entrance with the tank, when i did it, i died
in the turret area, i repeated from last checkpoint and got the achievement.

Just got it, very easy. The key is to go slow, drive out of cover sideways just enough to see the nearest enemy and shoot, then back up into cover again. This prevents Shade turrets from teaming up on you and Ghosts from surrounding you. When you get to the AA guns shoot the Jackals and then focus on the Banshees. Never get out of the tank and never get close to the turrets, you can shoot in the doors to the turrets and they'll blow eventually, and the second you see a Banshee take it out before anything else. On the way to the last open area use the same strategy of driving out, shooting, and backing up. The three Ghosts will only be able to come at you one at a time. As for the open area watch where turret fire is originating from (they'll be shooting at the Falcons) and aim there, if yo

I just got it. After 3 times of dying, and reverting to last save point, I got the achievement just when i drive uphill to the bunker. It was almost on fire and it smoked like hell. So explanation of this achievement:
'If you still can drive and shoot, when you arrive at the bunker, then this achievement will unlock'


PS. I killed all enemies on my way to the bunker. No one had survived.

I did it today, got the to the area with the 2 AA's, actually reversed off a cliff by accident...then got the area with 3 Ghost's just before the area with a few turrets (right before the bunker) died here, actualy spent over 20mins just trying to get past it, got to the bunker but still got the achievement (the tank was on fire though). So evedently, you can die while in the tank, and still get the achievement!

Comment #25 by m00ney79
Saturday, April 16, 2011 @ 01:41:08 AM

wow, that was alot easier than I thought it would be. After seeing all of these comments about getting 1-3 people to play with you in coop and to keep the tank back i thought this would be next to impossible while on my solo legendary playthrough. It was way too easy. Just hang back and shoot people as soon as you see them. The AA's you can just shoot from the tank so you never even have to leave the tank. I only died once trying to get it. I'm just surprised it was so easy.

This is very easy. The tank got destroyed tons , but as long as you reach the base w/ it, you get hte achievement.

Comment #28 by mjc0961
Saturday, April 30, 2011 @ 01:35:28 PM

Haha, this was fun for me. I made it to the base first try and was pulling up to it after destroying that last pink tank that's always in front of it. Then an extra shade turret and pink tank popped in behind me seemingly out of nowhere and started shooting. I managed to get the turret, but the tank's blast got me and blew up my tank. As my spartan was flying through the air from the explosion, this achievement unlocked. Hilarious! Tank really does beat everything, including human cannons. :p

Thursday, May 19, 2011 @ 01:35:43 PM

In theory, couldn't you just go through the level on foot and take out all the enemies, then return to the tank and take it with you?

Saturday, May 28, 2011 @ 02:03:59 AM

i left the tank back aways and continued in a revenant into sword base.
i didn't get the achievement so make sure you're actually in the tank when
you get to the entrance of sword base

Saturday, June 11, 2011 @ 05:09:18 AM

one of the easiest ways to get this achievment is to go through it several times on an easier difficulty, once you know the layout of the enemy placments pretty well, it is relativly simple to go through the mission without taking any damage so long as you hang back and do the shooting in the tank at long distances

Thursday, June 23, 2011 @ 10:34:57 PM

There are 4 hidden banshees before the tank all you have to do is flip two switches (look on youtube, achievment hunter by rooster teeth, one behind the sniper tower and one underneath the second building when you start) just clear out the enemies the banshees and drive through with the scorpian

Tuesday, June 28, 2011 @ 02:19:39 PM

make sure you take the tank to the checkpoint while you're driving it before you're forced to get out to continue. I left it behind a rock and walked up and didnt get the achievement.

this achievement was pretty easy. just hide behind a few rocks and shoot enemies from a distance. but its best to snipe the shade turrets at the end.

Comment #40 by Purple Wedge
Wednesday, September 14, 2011 @ 07:45:22 AM

You have to start from the beginning of the 9th mission on legendary, once you have cleared the outpost you head round the corner where the scorpion tank is, essentially you must ensure the tank survives to the end of that section, you must be in the tank towards the end for the achievement to unlock. If you die or the tank is destroyed just go back to the last checkpoint and re-try. It's not the hardest achievement to get, but it may take a few goes before you crack it. BEWARE: there are a few hidden grunts with high powered rockets waiting for you to pass then they hit you from behind so take it slowly and constantly check behind you!

Comment #46 by Raz Raptre
Friday, January 13, 2012 @ 09:04:20 AM

This is pretty easy on solo too. Like SuperSkyline89 said, the trick is to 'snipe' enemy encampments from behind rock ledges or debris. Since the tank has unlimited ammo, this shouldn't be much of a problem. Also, once you reach the 2 pink tanks (called Revenants), it's a good idea to get out of the tank and snipe the remaining shade turrets, as 2 of them fire green missiles instead of the usual blue plasma. Get back in the tank, blow up the Revenants, and pass through the checkpoint to unlock the achievement.

Sunday, March 25, 2012 @ 09:53:14 PM

Honestly this achievement explains itself, Whenever you first get the Scorpion, you go by where 2 grunts are, and mostly all people would do is just shoot the grunts and walk off, right? Well, no don't do that, kill the grunts, and then walk up to them, one of them should have a Fuel Rod Gun, which is what you would use throughout keeping the Scorpion alive, now honestly if your a pro at Halo Reach then don't even worry about it and just go in with the Scorpion, you should beat it in no problem. But hide your tank behind the big rock when you first reach where the 2 ghost are, and you need to keep it there until you kill the 2 ghost and everything else in front of it. The reason for that is beacsue if you stay there to long next to the tank, the 2 reverent that are there would come up and

Couple tips that helped me a LOT:

1: Get the Covenant sniper rifle from the hovering platform in the first part of the mission.
2: Make sure at least one NPC survives the first part of the mission (so he can man the turret on the tank).
3: Once you get the tank; take it slow!
4: The AA guns can be destroyed by shooting them with the tank 7 or so times. No need to get close.
5: After the AA guns, kill the hovering platform and 3 ghosts, then get out and use the Covy sniper rife to take out the gunners in the shade turrets (esp the fuel rod turret near the entrance to Sword Base).

Thursday, June 07, 2012 @ 03:27:10 PM

I just did this. There is little weird hint I did. For the last part where they are the gun turrets and banshees, I shot some of them but then died for the first time in the tank a few times until I finally got to the base and it popped up.

Monday, March 18, 2013 @ 12:28:32 AM

Easy on solo too - just take ur time & shoot from a distance and get to know where the turrets are - restarting the checkpoint will NOT void the achievement so in other words it's ok lol did it in less then 10 min

Right, I need a few more achievements to boost / work on in Halo Reach.

Tank Beats Everything
You Ate All the Chips / You Blew It Up
Don't Touch That / Paper Beats Rock / All Alone
Emergency Room / Stick It to the Man / License to Kill

After that all the other achievements I can work on myself.
