Halo: Reach

Halo: Reach Achievements

Make It Rain

Purchased an item from the Armory that required the rank of Lt. Colonel.

= 450,000 cR

Items to purchase at Lt. Colonel:

Grenadier knee guards - 45,000 cR
JFO Helmet - 60,000 cR
MJOLNIR Mk. V Helmet - 130,000 cR
Gungnir Helmet - 250,000 cR
Black Visor - 100,000 cR

How to earn cR: You earn cR from anything you do. Killing enemies, getting medals, completing a portion of the story, etc. Most of your cR comes from commendations. (medals like: Headshot, Double Kill, Killing Spree, etc) There are a lot of commendations to get. Doing the daily and weekly challenges are always a good boost of cR that usually can be acquired fairly easily. But if you want to gain cR quickly and efficiently, please refer to this thread: Credit Boosting Methods

1/5 because this will be the final achievment that I get. Even after Legendary Solo. The ranking system requires so much grinding. Getting the captain achievement alone is time consuming. Making it to Lt Colenel? I shudder at the thought.

This won't be hard. I plan to stay on Reach until at least Gears of War 3. I should be able to make it by then, playing daily of course.

My last achievement. I actually held back a bit since I wanted to experience everything the game had to offer. Now it's time to match-make and firefight like no tomorrow.

Now, when you get to the rank of Lt.Col., do you just buy anything while at that rank or above? or do you have to buy something that unlocks when you reach that level? And what items are unlocked at that level, just so I don't finally get there and buy the wrong things?

you need to buy something that requires the rank of lt. col , thats 1 kind of helmet (dont know its name) and the back vizor.

@loekes You need to buy the black* vizor and I think that the helmet is the MC helmet.

after reaching rank: Captain, it gets a lot more easier

Comment #13 by AJaySummer
Monday, October 25, 2010 @ 02:03:20 AM

It gets easier after Captain? Why is that? I'm at Warrant Officer Grade 3 and the amount of experience needed makes every matchmaking seem useless. What is the quickest way of getting credits?

Comment #14 by C2Ultima
Tuesday, October 26, 2010 @ 08:49:32 PM

This is my last achievement for this game, and I'm a Captain Grade 1.

One of the quicker ways to get experience is probably playing Gruntpocalypse on Score Attack. Just as long as you get headshots and multi-kills wherever possible, it gets around 1000 points each game, not counting challenges and commendations you get along the way.

Here are a few good cR tips.
Always Finish matches.
Only ONI boost unless you have a little cR left to level with.
If you're a "team" style player, play Invasion as you can get around 600-900 cR
a match regardless.
If you're a "solo" style player, play Score Attack modes, Sniperfight, or Grunt
pacolypse. You can average about 1000-2000 cR a match in about 10-15 minutes
for each match (depending on your skill level.) and it also boosts up your
Hope this helps to a degree as I'm on my last two levels before I get this :)

@ #20, if you play 24 hrs. a day for about 5 years straight you will get to inheritor.

Hi. I have problem collecting credits. Everything was going good, antil i started to play co-op game with my freind. The it was like we finished all the compain on heroic, and my account gained about 1500cr, and my friend's account gained maybe 15000-25000cr. Now when i play game solo on legendery i get only 50cr per mission, so i will get 450cr for all compaign (9missions). What;s wrong with this? (My account has xbox Live, but my friend's account has not).

the higher level u are the less credits u receive

Comment #24 by MundyGG
Saturday, February 12, 2011 @ 06:33:43 AM

@#22 if you finish a level on campain, the next level loads right away and you quit it will only show you the points you for the most recent level. To tell if you are getting points or not is to turn the scoring on and it will show you points earned after each level

Comment #26 by DannyUk95
Friday, February 25, 2011 @ 01:10:03 PM

I'm Colonel Grade 3 and it didn't take me that long, if anyone's still struggling to rank up then just play gruntpocalypse, rocketfight, invasion and grifball as well as do all the daily challenges. I got the game around 2 months after it came out and I only play a few hours a day and I managed it :)

Same goes for me as most other people, this is the last achievement I need to get, have 990 point for Halo: Reach for a while now. But the game is still fun to play, so eventually I'll get there. It's a grind, but not a boring one in my book

Comment #30 by MasterGrigg
Friday, March 18, 2011 @ 02:52:53 AM

Almost there now, about 6000 cR away. I don't play all that much, and if you just
keep at it you'll get there eventually. Complete the daily challenges that you
find easy, don't waste your time if you can't complete. Challenges like the mythic
campaign ones, they're an absolute pain in the rectum and not really worth the time
unless you are good at it because you could spend all day trying to complete a campaign
mission or play a ton of matchmaking and earn the same amount or even more.

Busted my nut to get this achievement (the last one i needed) before the first DLC came out... Many, many late nights playing score attack.

Easiest way... there's a spot in Courtyard where you can camp with the enemies only coming one way at you. Sniper or Gruntpocalypse are the easiest game types.

Do you have to be a lt. col. to unlock achievement or just purchase something (aka black visor)?

Comment #35 by soNdox2
Friday, May 13, 2011 @ 01:46:11 AM

@34 you cant purchase the visor unless you're lt. cl. So you must become lt. cl. and then purchase. Hey guys I found this on the forums and thought you may like.

Once I started playing with people I know, my rank shot up. I played for long periods, but it made it feel less tedious. I went from Warrant Officer Grade 2 to Captain Grade 3 in a few days just by doing Daily/Weekly Challenges and playing Team Swat and Arcadefight with some friends.

Comment #49 by Laynel8
Saturday, June 09, 2012 @ 11:06:46 PM

Here's a glitch to unlock this pain in the ass achievement really quickly:
1. Go to the armory
2. Highlight any piece of armor that requires lt. Colonel to purchase
3. Highlight the piece of armor above it (make sure you're at a high enough rank to select the item, and it's also affordable)
4. Select the item
5. When it says do you wish to purchase this item, highlight the 'yes' option
6. Instead of selecting yes, push down on the left thumbstick and the A button at the exact asme time
7. And BLAM! the achievement should pop up!

Hope this helps!

You could play Halo: CE Anniversary and find the terminals stashed throughout the campaign. (There are achievements based on that anyway.) Then you punch these codes in at Halo Waypoint (online on the Waypoint website if you don't have Gold) and you can get 100,000 Reach credits. It's a nice boost.

I hate this dumb achivement. It is the last one I need in Reach. After that I can play Halo 4 all the time as I like it so much more. Can't wait to get this one done.
