Comments
  • might be a tuffy?
  • right i never knew about commenting and rating achs lol
  • Do-able, but challenging.
  • Sounds fun =)
  • I cant wait. a good challenging but do-able achievement!!!!!!
  • probably gonna do this one with a friend. it'll be easier : )
  • @6 it says "Completed every mission in Halo Reach ALONE, on legendary". Learn to read. Also is it me or is it worth -1 GS?
  • damn thats gunna be hard
  • this will definitely be one of my challenging halo achievement that I will face alone. -1 gamer score?
  • @9 it says -1 gamer score up at the top of this page, but on the list of all the achievements it says "N/A" so I'm guessing it's a bug on the sight when an achievement's score is N/A it says it's worth -1 on this page.
  • says 150 gamerscore :) But finally, a good Legendary achievement in halo to seperate the good from the bad!
  • it's about time
  • its a good one
  • "im gunna do this one with a friend" lol
  • This ones gonna take awhile
  • Gonna be a piece of cake.....from a cake with barbed wire filling.
  • Finally! This is a good way of proving that I beat the game on Legendary, BY MY SELF! HA!
  • I'm going to die so many times.
  • It doesn't seem that bad
  • you get armor abilities in campaign right? You get them in firefight after all. Shield drop should make this a little easier then, automatic cover, health refill & hopefully time for your shield to recharge
  • Bring it on Bungie, bring it on.
  • Got this now :D took me 7 hours
  • The last level is frustating you need to have good control over your emotions during the battles because there are alot of wtf, go to hell, ****, b****'s, omg, and so on moments that make you regret going for the achievement
  • hi guys, i have done this achievement now, takes 8-10 hours (if u know wat your doing) Tips: Dont do this achievement if you dont know how to headshot with DMR or Needle rifle. Using needler is good for killing high shielded elite's. DMR and needler to highly needed. Dont forget its a camping misson :D
  • @20 all of the abilties are mute points on legendary Shield drop is the most valuable because it heals while you are in it but it only takes a few explosions for it to be destroyed (2 or 3 usually) and not only can enemies come in there but on occasion when you drop the shield a grenade or explosive round that was close will be in the shield when it opens up so it turns into a contained explosion with you in it
  • i managed to achieve it :D took several re-attempts at impossible odds but thank the lord i did it muahahahahaha
  • Done it in about ten hours! needle rifle and dmr needed at all times. camp all the time and don't give up!
  • THIS IS INSANLY BEAST! I DIED AT LEAST 157 TIMES AND IM BARELY ON THE 4TH LEVEL! BUT ITS DEFINETLY WORTH THE GAMERSCORE :)
  • @7 he was being sarcastic
  • im....im too scared to attempt it :'(
  • this is impossible
  • I'm just slowly going to approach this one mission at a time, rather then try to pull the 10 hour marathon. So far i've finshed the first 4 missions and i'm going to try Tip Of The Spear tonight. So far tho, if you stay back a bit and pick people off and pick up head shot weapons it's fairly easy. Also Noble Team members are REALLY helpful. If you are having a hard time, stick close to them, use them as distractions and shields (they can't die). I love this game and this achievement. My girlfriend can beat the game on legendary when she's in the game with me, but she would cry if she attempted it on her own. It really separates the dedicated and solid players from the rest. Outside of this achievement they seem really easy. I only have 4 left after moderate playing time for the f
  • I got this yesterday. It was pretty challenging to get! Legendary on Halo:Reach was pretty hard compared to the other Halo games. I was so happy when I got this achivement! Good luck to anyone starting,oh and make sure you always carry a plamsa pistol,and a ranged weapon! You'll need it...trust me! :D
  • Sounds like a good challenge,going to give it a shot.
  • I want to carry on plugging away at this one but i've got to watch soaps with her indoors. God I hate Mondays...... I'm halfway through the 8th mission. Best achievement in ages!
  • Im going for it...and the Data Pads. So far Winter Contingency is down (I did it without dying) now I gotta find more after time.
  • I'm on the 6th mission. The only advice I can give is to keep a plasma pistol on you to take out the pesky elites. Just overcharge it to take out their shields then soot them in the head with a head shot capable weapon (DMR, needle rifle, magnum or even the sniper).
  • Definately agree with plasma pistol. Keep them precision weapons in hand and two shots will take down elites. Brutes are another story, but all the same. The best tip I can pass down for hunters is to keep something like Armor Lock or Hologram with you. It's very possible to completely avoid a gunfight with Hologram armor skill.
  • Most of the hunter battles are un-avoidable from what I've seen. In any case, this is the achievement that seperates the men from the boys (and the gamerchicks from the little girls). This is one to display proudly.
  • yeah this is tough, hunter battles are painful, so many deaths, im just there like f***... F**** GO TO HELL!
  • I am currently taking this one mission at a time, and needle rifles and dmrs are MANDATORY! you cannot beat this with just any weapon.... for me: plasma pistol and dmr= pownage! best achievement ever in a while, ever since i got recon on odst for beating legendary by myself....
  • beating legendary on your own? a challenge indeed but i challenge i shall not back down from! as everyone is saying needle rifle and DMR is a must and the key is taking your time and doing things slowly. good luck to one and all who attempt this!
  • need to finish 4 more missions but the hunters piss me off
  • hard as hell but a good challenge
  • @31 no its not it just takes forever!
  • I'm on the fourth Mission, some parts I just sneak by slowly with invisibilty.
  • Much harder legendary than Halo 3, Reminds me of the first Halo.
  • I got this!
  • Getting this achievement was so much fun :3 If you like the process of beating retro vidya games back in Nintendos prime.. than this ones good for you. Beating this on legendary is all about repeating it over and over and over again, while also memorizing what enemies will be there and where they will go.
  • I got this and I believe the best way to do this is with this equipment: DMR/Needle Rifle Plasma Pistol Sprint Shield drop is useless because a drop ship (which there's a lot of) will destroy it in seconds. Sprinting can get you out of the room you're in and to an empty area of complete safety. The plasma pistol is invalueable. It makes any elite a 2 shot kill if you're practiced enough. Other tips: -Never let the marines drive, they're terrible -Avoid using gravity hammers and swords. As fun as they are, it's too much risk. -If you're playing a level with other spartans, let them do most of the work. -Killing priority goes Jackels, the fast Jackels, Grunts, Leaders. This may seem out of order but 20 small guys shooting is more deadly than 1 big guy. -Look for checkpoints af
  • ^This guy is correct. Except for what he said about the bubble shield, it may not hold up against their bullets but what it is really good for is healing you during a fight. I couldn't have beaten the last mission if it wasn't for having a bubble shield (I didn't have any bullets).
  • 3/10 way through :)
  • my friend said he got this achievement fairly easy by going through the campaign and unlocking all the levels, and the he said he just played from the last checkpoint of each level I'm not sure I believe him, but he does have the achievement so yea...
  • @53 tried it myself and failed. So your friends lying.
  • I completed this one a couple of hours ago. This is what I believe it's needed: Headshot - You need to have a quick and precise aim, always going for the headshot (DMR or Plasma Rifle recommended) Plasma Pistol - A charged blast will take down the shields of an Elite. Quickly change to your secondary weapon (a precision one) and one single bullet on the head will take him down. Patiente - Don't rush it. Play it safe and always try to take as much enemies from a distance as possible using a precise and ranged weapon. Armor Abilities - Choose them wisely. Bubble Shield is perhaps the most useful since it will give you cover for a brief time but most importantly you can use it as a med pack when you health is low.
  • just got started level 1 complete got carters helmet on it. you cant die when playing a level on legendary
  • My best advice (if that's what we're giving here) is take it slow and know when tho stop playing... I've discovered if you take a break (sometimes several days is best) you bound to do much better on the next go around (even if you're stuck on a seemingly impossible part)
  • i finished the game backwards it is a lot easier
  • haha im one achievement off now guys, the Lt colonel one for armor. This achievement is easier than u think, camp, camp, camp with dmr/needle rifle. But plasma pistol is good but if u get your hands on the needler its better to kill a elites with
  • Its hard.., no matter what you do, its really hard, its like 1 - 2 hours per mission, the hardest for me was the last one, i fell into like 2 bottlenecks, where i had only rifle, and a crap submachine gun, and i had to fight a horde of white elites and gold..., it was so slowly to kill with strategic all of them..., and when you have to go to the last part, you have to face like 5 red elites, they are really crazy, but at least here you should have many weapons to use..., its hard, but you can do it slowly... Getting this done, doesn't proof you have skill..., it just means that you are very patient..., at least its something good.
  • This one wasn't actually all that bad. Just make sure you keep a DMR handy... The hardest part is the last misson right before the end. Just got to have lots of patience and go for them headshots.
  • Quite easy just time consuming. Make sure you have a DMR and a plasma pistol. The plasma pistol charged and shot at an Elite takes out his shield, then one headshot with the DMR and dead! Easy!
  • I just got this achievement today and it was very hard :/ I'm glad I finally finished it. For anyone just starting on this there will be a lot of frustrating moments...
  • To do this you need a plasma pistol and a precision weapons. The assault rifle sucks don't use it unless you can't help it but always try to keep a plasma pistol on you for the elites. Medpack is good but make sure you are a good distance from the enemy and behind cover. Use the cover as much as you can so you take the least amount of shots. Be strategic and use your Noble teammates for a distraction and flank the enemies. Also use the grenades as much as you can and aim the stickies for the elites only. It will at the least destroy their shields if not kill them.
  • Also, you want to headshot the jackals and grunts right. In ODST, it was learned that the jacals get headshot by their jaw usually(I observed it).If you have to confront a hunter then use any heavy weapons you got and stickies(I observed on Heroic in ODST that three stickies kill a hunter) and aim for their back only if you can. One more thing, know where the sword guys are and keep a GOOD distance from them or you die.
  • First off; grats to anyone who has finished this achievement already. I did it about 2 days ago. I have to say that I didn't think it was any different from heroic until I hit the Long Night Of Solace Level. So many Elites. Everywhere. Surprisingly the bridge part of the level (inside the Corvette) didn't give me any problems. That was until the final Elite somehow managed to run back through the doors I came from and joined the rest waiting for me. That's when I started taking the whole affair more seriously. A lot of people have had issues with the Pillar of Autumn and I don't blame them. I mostly came through it since I planned ahead. By the time I arrived at the Boneyard I cleared everything and picked up the Fuel Rod Cannon from an Elite and a Grunt and saved it until the part where y
  • you have to fight the 2 hunters. That ensured I didn't have any problems with them. As for the last room with the Ultras. What can I say. Hologram/DMR/Plasma Pistol. They never stood a chance. It was extremely satisfying but it was in no way easy. I still think it is the way the campaign is meant to be played and my hats off to Bungie for giving us this much. For anyone currently attempting this I can only suggest the following. Range is key at all times unless you have nowhere to go (which is really rare). Preferable weapons are DMR/Needle Rifle/Sniper Rifle/Pistol. Keeping a Plasma Pistol on hand makes fights against Elites a whole lot easier. Also helps taking down those shields that Jackals carry but I got used to just shooting them once in the exposed area of the shield where they car
  • carry their weapon (exposing them to fire) and then immediate headshot. Some people say use sprint so you can just skip certain areas to avoid fighting but that approach won't always help. I also know that the game throws armor lock your way quite frequently but if you can get your hands on Active Camo or Hologram; you're set. Active Camo is a Godsend for sniping & getting through to certain areas if you're hurting and have to avoid fire at all costs. Even if it's just to get yourself into a better position. Hologram is my favorite though since (unless they see you cast it) enemies will fire away at your holo while you fire on them or move to a better vantage point. Even if you have an Energy Sword or a Gravity Hammer; melee is short of suicide. Unless you are completely sure you'll get yo
  • your hit(s) in (since some enemies will only fall after 2; never tried against hunters) avoid melee at all costs. Especially if there are still other enemies in the vicinity. You WILL get mowed down. As a last note; I know a lot of people have had issues with hunters. 2 pairs are actually avoidable. The pair in Nightfall (when defending Jun) despawn (don't know why) if you make your way towards the farthest section of the base area you are in. Giving you a checkpoint and allowing you to progress. I found that out when I went back there to get some ammo. As for the Hunter trio guarding one of the transmission devices in the New Alexandria level; you can completely avoid them altogether. Either sprint like mad and doge their fire (which I didn't intend on doing) or use the Active Camo you re
  • receive earlier on in the level. I went in and never had to fire a shot on them. As stated before; the last pair in The Pillar of Autumn level can be dispatched quickly if you kept the Fuel Rod Cannon from the Boneyard. Sorry for the long post; guess I got carried away. Anyway; if you're currently doing Legendary I hope some of this helps. For all those who have already completed the achievement; I hope you enjoyed the play-through as much as I did =)
  • this is really a hard achievement to get, but a must have for the real fans ;) ive got a few tips to make it easier for you to get them: 1. when fighting elites try to plasma overcharge and headshot them (especcialy zealots are incredibly irritating without combo) 2. hunters are stupid! just send a hologram so theyll turn their back at you. 3. dont be afraid of backtracking for ammo
  • and another thing, in the last piece of pillar of autumn just wait BEHIND the mac gun you dont neccessarily have to shoot the phantoms, just move in for the kill. it rly works :P
  • Holy crap this is hard... i've been doing it for like 3 hours and only on the 3rd mission... =/
  • It has some tough parts. Weapon choice is crucial. Plasma pistol is your friend when you fight elites. DMR as always a good choice, and you can pretty much forget about sniping elites.
  • anyone want to help me beat the campain on legendary? yes i know its not for this acheievement, gamertag is XXP1PSQU3AKXX
  • F-ING FINALLY!!! lol it takes like and hour a mission and will die... alot... but it soooo worth it
  • this is gonna take a while...
  • HEY PEOPLE WHO WANT THIS ACHIEVEMENT PLEASE WATCH THIS VIDEOS. THEY TELL YOU HOW TO DO IT THE EASY WAY. IT START AT THE TIP OF THE SPEAR. :D
  • http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hVpQ_kVpzOE&feature=related SORRY THIS ARE THE VIDS FORGOT TO ADD THEM :P
  • going for it now. wish me luck.
  • @79 YOU ARE CRAZY ;D
  • Just started last nite first 2 missions in an hour, bit easier than Halo 3 so thats good
  • wish me luck ppl thanks ave read all an will try it now a no the best ways to try it lol
  • I did this and am very proud of it. Gets frustrating at times, but in the end it's worth it. Quick tip: the plasma pistol is your friend! I used the plasma pistol with a DMR for the majority of the campaign and boy, elites and brutes are MUCH easier to kill after you take down their shields with an overcharge.
  • that was an easy 150G :)
  • Was working on this cleared out an area and a sneaky suicide grunt blew me up and didn't want to kill all the enemy's again but going to try to get it.
  • The plasma pistol became my best friend during this challenge
  • Mine too
  • I loves the plasma pistol
  • its good and it actully shows skill
  • BOOM! Gotcha. The trick is to use an EMP combo.
  • Bring it on! (After I have done all the other achievements...)
  • easy
  • had a lot of fun doing this
  • So far only have 3 missions left Trying on NightFall now :D
  • misson 10,8,7 left then i got finally pretty challenging
  • Last mission left!!! :)
  • i done it in 3 hours and 46 mins it was fun i died about 288 times but it is well wurth dying 4 :) 8)
  • i just completed this on legendary with my m8and i had ago on my own i got to exodus and i keep getting owned by grav hammer brute
  • Got the achievement and I am so proud of myself! Sure it kicked my a$$ but it was totally worth it!
  • i havnt started it because im not a campaign sorta person but im gunna give it a try and any tips on new alexandria?
  • Sick... I don't have time for this...
  • A lot easier than it sounds. I got in a couple days.
  • Beat the campaign on Heroic first, no help, even though it's unlikely you'd need it... Then go to Legendary. I was just thinking about how impossible this would be and now, only three missions left. Screw the Assault Rifle, stay with the DMR.
  • I can tell u this invisibility is the best not drop shield unless u have cover for ur cover .like on nightfall I basically sneaked past th level until the hunter part
  • Took me 4hours to do nightfall, i havent played halo since 2006 and thought i'd play reach and went straight to legendary, it makes you good, the DMR is the best to kill elites, next to the pistol (spartan pistol), you need to headshot 2-3 times in a row then when they stagger just shoot them one more time anywhere, the only problem is if you fire too many bullets you might have to die and do it again without missing, pistol works the same way just faster but slightly weaker, If you ever played WoW it's just like raiding hard modes, everytime you wipe/die it's progression until you learn to do it right. I went to multiplayer after doing this and got first place every time, and 85% of my kills were headshots with DMR/needle rifle, lol, but I suck with the actual sniper rifle, I think it's b
  • one of the hardest achievements to get, but the one that you feel better at getting
  • Beat it on Legendary took me about a week or so playing it at night after the kids went to bed. A few levels were pretty difficult but some others not so much. Nightfall was a toughy, and part two of long night were the most difficult for me. Did it alone with no help at all.
  • im taking my time for this 1 got 6/10 done now pfff its rly wearing me down haha
  • No problemo. Piece of cake.
  • Ive done it now but it was pretty hard. The best thing i found is a plasma pistol and a DMR. Overcharge youre plasma at elites then headshot them with youre DMR. Also use needler weapons (needle rifle, needler) are very affective against any brutes.
  • i should have had this one except my campaign progress got wiped and set back nothing before i could complet the last level
  • Got this one - DMR ann plasma pistol are definitly the way to go
  • I will remember that when i lock myself down in my room, tetting my wife only come in to give me drinks this weekend....
  • as long as you beat halo 3 legendary, reach is a walk in the park. way more weapons they leave around for you, plus the armor abilities make it even easier
  • easy, but takes a little time
  • fun, challenging, and very FRUSTRATING as times!!! But it was worth it. I used a lot of youtube videos for help on this one. There's tons of places you DON'T have to really fight. AI in this one isn't too bad, your teammates do a lot of work at times.
  • This is actually quite easy. My tips would be not to do it all in one day, just do 2 missions a day and I worked backwards from the pillar of autum to winter contigency to get the hardest mission out of the way. Just use plasma pistol and DMR on elites and they'll be dead in minutes. The only time is strategy doesn't work on elites is elite zealots. But however, you can just EMP them twice then headshot them with the DMR (thats what I did when theres 5 elite zealots at the end of pillar of autum) Just remember not to waste ammo take regular breakes and this achievement will be yours soon.
  • You can pretty much ghost the first one and Nightfall(Can be done in under 10 mins)
  • It makes sense, since swearing is a sin and in completing this, I swore exponentially. Especially when the Hunters beast Emile off the map and he doesnt respawn, immediatley making a checkpoint, leaving me to beat them alone, with an assault rifle -.-
  • I done all other Halo games on legendary on my own so atleast now I will get credit for it if I can be bothered.
  • Really Really easy, just go checkpoint by checkpoint, i would have every halo reach achievement but my game disk doesnt play 3 of the levels.....:(
  • A good tip I found useful is giving your heavy weapons (Rkt, Sniper) to a team mate when it is down to one round of ammo. This way your team mate will have infinite heavy ammo and hopefully the AI will help out until they inevitably die or get left behind...
  • Plasma Pistol, DMR, you're good. Doing this without beating the campaign first (Like I did) makes it that much harder because you won't know what you're supposed to do half the time... But it's still fun. Pillar of Autumn is quite the nuisance.
  • impossible achievement
  • Im just Got it :D
  • Great.. looking forward to dying a million times just got done with call of duty on veteran and I always seem to have more trouble with legendary on the halo's so sounds like this is going to be just thrilling for a deserving 150G..
  • I've never completed any Halo games on harder than Normal. (The harder they get, the further I run away...) But my New Years Resolution is to try new things, and if that means dying a million times attempting this, then so be it... Coincidentally, if anyone fancies helping me out getting Legendary on Halo 3 or ODST, my Gamertag is Firefly Omega. Happy hunting everyone!
  • I completed this the 2nd day Halo Reach csme out ^.^ First day i spent the whole day doing 3/4 of campaign on Legendary solo then the other day i finished it :D
  • One hell of a challenge. The only advice I can give is be patient and have bubble shield at all times. Good luck
  • This was a tough one
  • This wasn't overly bad, had a couple spots where I died over and over
  • C'mon people,,, THIS IS NOT A HARD ACHIEVEMENT legendary is easy when you play smart.
  • Wasn't legendary on halo 3 more difficult then reach?
  • this really wasnt hard atall until the last mission. that one was a bit hard but still got it :), i advise you use the plasma pistol combo with the DMR if your just starting this on legendary it will safe your life and alot of time.
  • This is gonna be a triky one, since i only just started to play halo as i more of a call of duty player :)
  • looking forward to nailing this bad boy later, if you need any help boosting please message me!!
  • This achievement is pretty much impossible if you don't keep a Plasma Pistol + DMR handy at all times. Plasma Pistol then headshot for Elites, headshots for everything else. Make sure to always switch for new Plasma Pistols so you don't run out, as Elites tend to come in packs. Sprint is pretty much the only useful armor ability on solo Legendary, except on Exodus (Jetpack) and against Hunters (Hologram+Shotgun) Stay away from everything. You WILL get killed in only a couple of hits, even if you think it's safe. If a sticky grenade explodes anywhere near you, you will die in one hit. And for the love of god don't shoot the Hammer guy until all of his friends are dead.
  • Sorry for the double post but I forgot to mention one thing: Grunts are more dangerous than they look. They are the most dangerous enemies in the game. Always kill them first. It only takes one to lob a grenade to kill you in one hit, or to take your shields down in only one hit with their Plasma Pistol. I hope this helps
  • i mite try it the old fasion way as i have done halo 1,2,3,odst on legendary dat way
  • its best just to do it by yourself on legendary cuz then you get 4 achievements for doing 1 thing.i think biggest time saver right there.
  • Just got it :)
  • this might be a stupid question, but can you do any mission in any order or do you have to do it in order of the story? It's just im stuck on Nightfall ( the section after you have to protect Jun, when i did it on normal he followed me into this part of the level but he hasn't this time round
  • holy ****
  • @143 A friend of mine skipped some of the first missions and then completed them after beating the last ones, so I believe you can get the achievement by doing that.
  • EXTREMELY EASY jk lol
  • ATTENTION ANYBODY HAVING TROUBLE WITH NIGHTFALL: when you are supposed to save and help the militia defend their home you can continue with the level and ignore them and its will skip that whole ordeal. also, the sword has only one instance of use: the first part of the corvette in long night of solace. hit those first two elites and then drop below and let the others attract them while you turn them into mincemeat. be patient. plasma rifle works alright for lowering shields if the plasma pistol isnt available (which i find hard to believe)
  • doubls post: i just finished. was well worth the trouble
  • im not gona go for this one
  • this one is quite simple. the more times you die, you will slowly but surely progress and you will know more about their moves. you dont really need the power weapons to per vale, you need a plasma pistol and a head shot weapon (DMR, Needle rifle etc).
  • http://achievementhunter.com/games/comments.php?id=57749 makes it a tonnn easier
  • OK, just started playing reach, but wanted to get the acheivements in one go! BAD IDEA!!! so much harder to kill than on the other halos
  • this achievement is so friken hard to get!!!!!
  • Hands down, this is the hardest achievement for Halo: Reach. The good thing is, you unlock all the other difficulty achievement (The Soldier We Need You to Be, Folks Need Heroes..., Gods Must Be Strong). A good 200 GS.
  • so hard
  • this took me so long to get but finally I got it and I was like hell yeah!
  • i cannot get it all i can do is the first few missions and then i get stuck... dont know maybe i just suck so much i cant do it
  • I don't think it's as hard as people are making out, if anyone is stuck just keep hammering away at it. It's more about persistence perseverance and learning when to use certain weapons than it is about skill.
  • Although a few things to remember. 1) Grunts can be lethal with their grenades, take them down quick and fast. 2) Any situation where you are up against a lot of Covenant start taking down the weakest ones first, E.g Jackels before Elites. This will mean your reducing the amount of guns firing at you in the quickest possible time. 3) Use weapons you are comfortable with but don't be afraid to use weapons your not so good with if the situation demands it, if you switch to a power weapon stay close to the weapon you dropped for it and return to pick it up again, Some times it's worth leaving some rockets behind if you can take a full DMR ahead. Sorry for double post.
  • ok I my friend bought me that halo reach and I neveer play played halo in my life...but i am still starting with legendary XD.. I am on the 5th mission atm...pretty hard al alone :/...but il do it :D
  • goodluck guys
  • this achievement takes dedication
  • this really isn't as hard as people are making it out to be, i took my time and finnished it in around 10 hours, some levels demand more concentration than others, new alexandria being one as well as pillar of autumn, the bubble sheild is useless in large gunfights as the amount of concentrated gunfire directed towards you makes it last no more than 5 seconds, best bet is to go with hologram. Camping is vital as keeping a plasma pistol as a sidearm! always pick up a DMR even if you have rockets! and for the love of god! never! EVER! pick up the jet pack, it may as well be a big sign plastered on your chest that reads "SHOOT ME DOWN!"
  • Yeahr i agree with the guy above me thats the way i did it and it wasnt too challenging not the hardest campaign ive played
  • the last mission took me two and a half hours, i shouted soo loud wen i did it tht my mum yelled at me lol
  • it took me all in all about 10 hours. dmr ftw!
  • Using the active camo helped but still tedious
  • This was indeed a tough one... Took me a good 10hrs+, but I finally nailed it! Yay for me! / It's about the hardest achievement I have ever tried to get, but then I suck at Xbox 360 FPS games :P Go slow, take your time and expect to play certain chapters again and again and again... If you find yourself overwhelmed with Elites and manage to kill one (like in the final battle on Pillar of Autumn before the big gun), run around and try to trigger a checkpoint, that way you don't have to kill the same Elites several times. I checkpointed all 4 Elites in that final area :D Good luck!
  • I did it ;D, it was awesome!!!
  • It took me like 8 hours, the only level that was a real pain in the ass!! was the last level because i ran out of DMR ammo :S
  • This is definitely hard, but as many people have said, just take it checkpoint-by-checkpoint; if you get really stuck on one bit, turn off the xbox for a few hours and come back a bit later, it really makes a huge difference! :) Also, turn 'Team Scoring' on - it means you'll get many credits for all the enemies you kill (and re-kill, after you die and have to kill them again...), so it's not all bad. :)
  • Completed every halo game(on360) on legendary, by myself, whats the big deal?
  • Yeah, this is one of those achievements that challenging enough to be fun, but overall it's just more time-consuming, I think. Like I said, still VERY fun. Can't wait to check that one off my list :)
  • so dumb, do able but just a pain in the ass. this is y people r anti social, they lock themselves in their basement and play this game for hours.... poor idea bungie, i am dissapoint
  • this wasnt really that hard if you have a dmr and plasma pistol to dominate elites or a needle rifle to blow up the brutes. finiished it in less than 10 hours. super fun
  • Shouldn't be too hard, Halo 3 Legendary didn't take too long to do solo.
  • Im done with about 6 of them my advice always keep a DMR they are insanely helpful. As a secondary have a power weapon like rockets or fuel rods. If not using a power weapon use a needler, needle rifle, assault rifle, spiker or plasma pistol. Also look around you may find some extra power weapons. On Exodus there is a hidden sniper excellent for taking out brutes and jackal snipers. On Pillar of Autumn there is a hidden sniper and Spartan Laser both helpful for taking down ghosts and shades. Also stay back, pop in and out while taking shots, focus fire on one enemy at a time, stay out of vehicles, make good use of armor abilities, always try to have spare grenades, don’t ever rush an elite/brute/hunter, never let your guard down. Good Luck and happy weapon hunting.
  • Just got this one finally!!!!!!! Very satisfying but I don't want them to make anymore solo legendary achievements....not fun...last level took me over two hours :(
  • Well, I'm just gonna start off on Legendary, since I've played Halo 3 & Halo 3: ODST.
  • As of October 2nd, barely 5% of the Reach community has obtained this achievement Thats a fact
  • Took me 13 hours
  • who cares about hard achievements like this one
  • Me and my friend are trying to do this one.
  • one tactic i used was trying to take out enemies from afar so u dont have to try and deal with them upfront and as Zegon lord said way earlier,u need to know and be good at headshotting. if u cant, then ur screwed. good luck to anyone that tries. it will take a while. trust me:)
  • This achievement was a pain in the ass! Took me forever but i finally got it tho
  • got it today. was easy for me some parts I kept dying but once you've worked that part out easy. tips for people who are doing this do a mission a day, try and always use the DMR and plasma rifle, if you got anyone from noble team let them do the fighting to save your ammo also per mission it took me hour to two hours besides the last one which took me over 2 half hours
  • Haha this was a really fun achievement to get. I think the hardest part was the last level nearing the end. I got to the part where there are 3 elite majors and I actually ended up getting Emile to kill them and then he even went on to kill the hunters for me what a pal. After that i was trying to weapon juggle and my DMR disappeared before the final fight,(I think Emile ate it.) so I ended up having to do the final fight without a DMR -_-* All in all, pretty fun and a great way to finish up my Halo Reach set. (until the next map pack that is...)
  • If you get this will you get all the other campaign achievements such as finish on heroic?
  • Wasn't as hard as I expected... Unbelievably hard, but not as hard as I expected... Fav weapon choice: Plasma Pistol and DMR Reason: DMR for unshielded units; Pistol supercharge, then DMR headshot on shielded units. Works every time. ;)
  • Gonna try this one when im more familiar with playing on Legendary
  • Watch a walkthrough on YouTube. It really helps a lot.
  • Holy shit this will be hard drop shield lots of sorosis and dmr should do it lol
  • Keypad error what I meant to say is lots of doritos and a DMR should do it lol
  • Well after weeks I managed to get this achievement, i have never been more proud of myself.
  • freakin insane, but well worth the 150g's.
  • Completed all other Halos on Normal, except Reach. How am I going to do this achievement?
  • Time consuming achievement but worth it.
  • level one just run on the right a lot it skips a lot befor you get the cars and i i am almost done with this one i did the last 3 levels first becaus they where difficult
  • needs to be harder! turn all skulls on then its a challenge
  • I'm about halfway through, and absolutely dreading the "Defend the door and fix the turrets" level. Any tips for that monster of a level?
  • Started this on Monday with the first level and did it in order, finishing today. Melee weapons arn't useless- is you use them only on single enemies on the final part of the last level i killed all the brutes (even the boss ones with fuel rod and plasma launcher) with a hammer i got off a chieftan and a sword. also sneak when you can and assassinate elites one by one the quick way to remain unseen. use every power weapon availble bar spartan laser except for shades
  • This is impossible :P
  • totally not impossible :P pretty easy actually ... play Crysis 2 for a week then come back haha
  • The key to this achievement is: Get a DMR, and hav the ill-will to survive
  • IF U NEED TO BEAT NIGHTFALL MISSION STILL WATCH THIS!! I WISH I WOULDA SEEN THIS BEFORE I PLAYED THIS MISSION LOL http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Rjz2Eumt7_E
  • this achievement was pretty easy, except the space mission
  • For those of you who dont want to do this instead want to play online go to: www.GetMyMicrosoftPoints.com/?i=114579 and get free xboxlive and m points to buy those nice add-ons too.
  • i am trying to get this now! just 3 or 4 missions left on legendary alone to complete!
  • PLASMA PISTOL AND DMR ARE YOUR BEST FRIEND
  • Im gonna get this game but is Reach solo campaign on legendry easier then Halo 3 solo campaign on legendry? Because I managed to do that quite easy.
  • i thought the game was pretty easy and it made it rly fun, except for the dang elite ultras and generals. Swords demolish elites in two swings so use them. The needler rifle is surprisingly effective especially when the elites supercombine b/c hitting those jumping dinos with a headshot can be challenging sometimes.
  • Just conserve your ammo for the DMR and remember to scour the levels for ammo crates hidden throughout. it makes your life much easier. P.S. the spiker dominates other brutes
  • I did it
  • This one was easy. I did it on a boring sunday only took about 5 hours to do
  • Anyone wanna do this with me?? JK to bad it has to be solo:(
  • by far easiest halo to complete (legendary). new health bar, more weapons, un-killable noble team, armor abilities, hammer chieftans suck ass now, and they took out the flood. anybody who claims this is hard obviously hasnt played previous halos legendary solo.
  • I think I might end up 2 or 3 short on this game. This achievement is tough.
  • Completed this yesterday along with heroic and the regular legendary cheevos. 325G thankyou very much! Stay back, play smart, use noble teammates as bait, profit. Hardest parts for me personally were the elite-fest on the corvette, and the final brute-fest on the pillar of autumn. Ironically, after the brutes went down to clear the path for the landing, the 3 zealot elites took me AGES to kill with their friggin fuel rods and dual wield plasma rifles. Pillar of autumn level was the longest on legendary by far, took me almost 3 hours And for the hunters, always let my team mate take their attention and shotgun in the back when they are preoccupied. The level where theres the hunters in the flying level without a teammate, i rushed in and out without killing any of them :p
  • Yay I got this took 5 hours to do.... This really was the hardest solo for me, halo 3 was easy, but why did elites have to be in this to kill you....
  • this achivement sucks i quit it because on the mission with jun he sniped me in the head trying to kill the elite i was trying to assassinate
  • Not that bad if you take your time...
  • Ok. Going to beat this with my friends online. NO! WAIT! There's an achievement to beat legendary alone! So, no friends online just me and the game. ....................5 hours later................................ OM GOSH!!!!!!!!!!!! HOW DO YOU BEAT THIS SECOND LEVEL!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I OM GOSSSSHHHHHHHHHH ....................10 more hours of screming and cussing later............. Ok, final misson got to....... NO SHOOT HIM NOT ME!!!! ..................final try................... Ok, beat the lvl skip this cut seen and get this achievement..... plunk! Error can not read disk plz use a soft cloth or something else to get this of... NNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
  • I started working on this achievement yesterday and im still on the 3rd lvl
  • Can't do last level! I hate the last part with all the brutes, lost all my marines and I'm stuck alone with a DMR :(
  • this achivement is frustrating, its the only one im missing for 100% complete!!!!!! Stupid Zealot elites..
  • Did this in two days ... I have plenty of hints for the last level!
  • on mission 6. trying to do it 1 mission a week so i don't blow my brains out out of frustration.
  • On nightfall now it hasn't been to bad yet plasma pistols and plasma grenades have been my best friends so far
  • Any tips on weather its easier to run through or just fight through cause this one is alot harder cause of the elites!
  • this was really tuff for someone like me who ad never played an halo game b4 XDD...since i am an hardcore player i started this on legendary and i never played any halo befpre...it was really tuff :P but i got finnaly :P...took me 6days
  • still haven't played it on legendary coop lmao, this one was more fun then tough after the initial learning curve
  • Working On It As I Type, On The Package Right Now Under Ground
  • soooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo hhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaarrrrrrrrrrrr ddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddd
  • Hey guys, I have a couple questions and I'd really appreciate If someone answered them for me. 1) if you already have completed the campaign on an easier difficulty and decide to do all missions on legendary hence finishing the campaign on legendary, does the other achievement also pop or do you have to do the campaign as if it were fresh out of the box. 2) if both achievements pop do you also get the achievements for Completing the game on simpler difficulties hence the heroic one. Thank you and please respond I really appreciate it. :)
  • yeah dude, if you go ahead and complete it on legendary then you'll get all the acheivments pertaining to completing the campaign, including the gods must be strong cheevo you mentioned, thats what i did, watching all the cheevo unlocks pop up was very very satisfying! hope i helped :)
  • Thanks Micky blue
  • easiest achievement ever
  • The Docter Docter achievements was harder than this.
  • For me, this achievment took away a week of my life
  • took me 2 days at most
  • patience is a necessity. The very end with the elites was very aggravating. take your time!
  • man just finished doin that achieve today hard
  • This is a TRUE achievement! I'm at the very end now, just have to clean out three zealots and man Emile's big gun. It's been a long journey, and I feel like I've grown as a person! ;)
  • the final part took several hours. this achievement stole alot of my life lol
  • hard but def. worth it
  • for me it was worth the frustration lol
  • Reach is by far the most challenging Halo game ever. I recently went back to play Halo 3 on heroic, and I literally had to check and re-check to make sure I wasn't playing on easy. It's that big of a difference. Awesome feeling when I got this.
  • It was definitely hard (considering i'm kinda a newb) and it took be several days to do it. For me, armor abilities pretty much saved my life. For example, if i didn't have active camo in nightfall or bubble shield in long night of solice i probably would not be able to get through the levels nearly as quickly. Also, the four elites at the end of the pillar of autumn (3 plasma rifle dual wielding zealots and one field marshall with a fuel rod gun and an energy sword, i think)can be easily killed but whacking them with a gravity hammer from the chieftain before. If they take notice of you, they will charge, so all you have to do is stay behind something so that they can't hit you and when they get close enough, hit them with it and they should die in two hits.
  • http://www.mspointscodes.com/?i=404881
  • the only hard part in this game on legendary was the last mission
  • this achievement made me soooo mad i almost smashed my controller i was soo P'd off i really like the challenge though but i dont like losing haha anyways DMR and Needle rifle is a great combination if you can get a sniper get one of those as well.
  • Definatly my most satisfying achievement ever!!! now im a worthy member of noble team : D
  • Just keep a precision weapon with you at all times and something that will bring down shields quick. With brutes I just melée and headshot killed them. They're weaker than the grunts.
  • http://www.mspointscodes.com/?i=467788 This is greit way to get achievement
  • i hated the sniper mission, my A.I friend kept blowing my cover and then ended up killing me
  • still working on this one.. like the challenge though!
  • 70% done with the campaign, the challenge isn't a problem, it's just the staying in one place for 20 or more minutes camping and hiding from enemies when ur shield is down. Gonna take a while...
  • If anyone is intrested in a halo reach banshee avatar prop msg my gamertag: xXGrubKillerXx
  • http://www.mspointscodes.com/?i=507400
  • SCREW.THIS.ACHIEVEMENT. It's challenging but I am serious rage quiter so this is going to ggive me serious stress
  • Last level was difficult, The rest were easy The defend the lab doors level was awesome
  • hunters are very scary on legendary. (if you dont have any power weapons)
  • this was fun but excodus,long night of solace and pillar of atumn were extreamly annoying but it was still awesome. now im a general grade 4 and i need like two more achievements to have the game 100% done.
  • man this is too tough I only completed 5 levels and died more than 90 times!!!!!
  • This one is a pain!!!
  • I Have Finished The Campaign On Easy And Normal. Now Im Doing It on Legendary. Im On The 44th Mission. IMPOSSIBLE
  • @271 It's not impossible but IT IS a pain in the neck. All what you have to do to improve your skills is playing the campaign on heroic several times and you'll have a good chance to beat the campaign on legendary
  • i know a guy who beat it on legendarry coop then he beat exodus by himself and got this achievement. has this happened to anyone else
  • I didn't clock a lot of hours getting this one. However, I did stretch it out over almost two weeks (multiplayer got in the way). My friends didn't get this game until much later than I. So, I was forced to do it alone... and since I've been a Halo junkie for like 6 years I went straight to Legendary. I didn't expect this to be considered hard, (admittedly it was, but I'm not incredible at Halo).

  • I just got it, my last achivement. Wasn't that hard, I actually had more problems during my heroic run.
  • I was able to skip some elites in the 6th mission... now I came back to them and now there r more elites :(
  • Well I dont mean 2 brag but looks kinda easy
  • Anyone notice that "A monument to all your sins" is what gravemind said in Halo 2
  • Anyone wanna team up and play some Halo?Hit me up with an Friend Request.
  • Wasn't too hard. More time consuming than anything especially when weapons zoom-in capable weapons become more scarce in the later levels.
  • IN-SANE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
  • My tips are to use run throughs and glitches to get through the levels. A few of the glitches are patched so you might want to clear System Cache and not update.
  • Great achievement. Took me about a day to do taking my time, watching the cutscenes, taking breaks, etc. A+
  • http://www.mspointscodes.com/?i=597337
  • You can sprint through most of the battles
  • Anyone got any tips for this bitch?
  • If anyone is intrested in buying a halo reach banshee avatar prop Msg me GT: xXGrubKillerXx
  • Last level is a good until the last friggin part. To many specialised brute. At least it not like cod was where there is raining grenades.
  • Fuckkkeen sword base oni i cant seem to beat it i get to the part where u drive the warhog than i friggin die nd than i have to restart the mission because then stupid elite general kill me than i cant beat the first part and than i get pissed off an turn off my friggin xbox!!!!! lol
  • bungie you guys are a bunch of skumbags
  • I got stuck at the mass drive after sprinting passed two elites but i done it
  • free ms points here http://www.mspointscodes.com/?i=614691
  • The best advice i could give anyone attempting this is just to preserve your ammo and to take your time, do not try an rush through battles you will just get surrounded. I have 1400G for this game and still play regulary so if anyone needs any help gettin any of the other achievements just meesage me and i will be more than happy to help!
  • personally found this much easier than halo2/3 legendary solo, just because we have all these armour abilities to abbuse. not to mention noble team has invincible plot armour, they can be stuck with nades over 100 times to no avail. no matter how much they beefed up elites, that EMP is still their biggest enemy. one short plasma pistol blast and a headshot with any precision weapon will make quick work of most enemies. the power weapons stashed all over each level also give you a huge advantage. and as always if you suck at halo, you can just speed-run thru like a wuss :P. and im pretty sure most people didnt even finish the last level on the mac cannon. they simply waited for the guy to say "take the shot!" then hopped on. i however, did not know about this trick :P
  • this was a helluva lot easier than black ops on veteran. but still was very hard
  • Very hard but worth everything! Trying to 100% all the Halo games!!
  • Using drop shield helps, but sometimes you need to use decoy to get a shot on some elites with the energy sword.
  • Very funny and challenging achievement , but it's worth 150 gamescore If you love halo games and achievement you must try this one out :)
  • Easy got it a while ago but lost my saved data for campaign well at least I still have the achievement!
  • so about half way threw this, best advice, always have a plasma pistol. mission 5 at the end when you get up the top of the spire this is a elite with a sward. plasma pistol saved me again and again... awesome achievement. one more thing, i have heard a lot about this not unlocking after you complete it, i have been playing for about a day now, and i will be pissed it if doesnt unlock, i decided to leave my xbox on at all times wile i make my way threw this game, woke up this morning and it was just how i left it. V/r LS3 (sw/aw) Heidelberger, Travis. USS Whidbey Island Deployed
  • This was pretty tough but i got it after a lot of deaths. :D
  • i figured out a good way to beat i earned monument of ll your sins,folks needs heroes and gods must be stong in one playthrough by letting my team kill everything and take the blunt end of the covennt attacks, the 3 hrdest levels are the piller of autumn,nightfall,and the package,hope this helps
  • the best guns to use are the dmr,needle rifle and the needler,magnum,and energy sword
  • Finally beat this today! Great challenge
  • Any tips on how to kill Hunters? They keep killing me.
  • i just got to do exudous and ill be home free of this achievement but the bad thin g is that my game broke so i cant play exudous:((
  • Do you have to complete it without dying or just without another player? And if you haven't completed the game on any difficulty before and you beat it on veteran almoe will you unlock all four achievements?
  • This achievement was awesome
  • so fun to get this
  • It's a pretty straight forward achievement. the only level i'd say is most annoying is 'Nightfall' ._.
  • (TGS) The Gaming Standard is now recruiting! We achievement hunt together as well as play mulyiplayer games competitively. Our main goal is to have fun. Also we dont allow degrading other team mates! Looking for 2 players who are great players 1 to lead and build our Black Ops team. The other to lead and build our Halo team. Being in charge of a team obviously means a high ranking position! Must be loyal to the clan. Can not be a member of other clans! if this sounds like you add me and lets get started.....
  • Even no i try doing this achievement it tough any tips for the nightwalk level with Jun
  • Ahhh.....I remember this cheevo. I also remember the wraiths never ever missing there freakin plasma shots. Or dying in tons of BS ways. Good times? Maybe
  • Once u do this don't u get the others or no
  • @Kelpto - They should stack, yes. This is implied in the guide itself too as it states that a single playthrough on Legendary will net you 440G (all the difficulty based achievements plus the mission completion ones). Also, check the speedrun videos for the missions on youtube - there are so many fights that can be avoided making even legendary relatively easy for some missions.
  • This achievement took me some time but, with patience, much patience,and deaths. I got it. Once you get the hang of it, its not too hard. You definitely operate differently, even on any other difficulty.
  • Just get checkpoints.
  • basicly what some people do on halo 3
  • easy using a dmr, until hunters come
  • omfg i don't have map packs because i don't see the point in wasting money on 10 achievements and some maps full of camping cunts, so the only achievements i have left to do are this one and tank beats everything. CBA might get a friend to hack my xbox so i have all achievements for this game
  • visit this link for free microsoftpoints!!! http://www.mspointscodes.com/?i=606560
  • I love the number of people on various forums around the 'net that claim to be great Halo players and can't seem to score this cheevo... all it takes is determination and time.
  • beat it over a four day period, played for 3
  • I'm really proud of myself for doing this one, it took me a few days but it was worth it of doing it. halo rules
  • This was and is by far, my favorite achievement, it took me a while but now everything else seems so simple!
  • It took me a while, but I got it.
  • this is the only achievement that i hate as much as it hates me
  • just keep trying youll get it right sooner or later
  • Go to youtube and type MythicTyrant, he is amazing!
  • Way easier than Halo: Combat Evolved... Legendary on that game is ridiculous.
  • Just search speedruns on youtube. they know all the tricks to get through it easily and quickly
  • this is the only non DLC achievement that i don't have and its killing me
  • this is an evil achievement!
  • so easy
  • It takes long enough with 2 people i dont think i will be doing this one
  • I love achievements like this. I remember how epic it was, trying to complete Halo 3 on Legendary with friends. And then later I completed it alone on Legendary. I think I'm going to try this as soon as I get another copy of Halo: Reach. My other copy got ring-burned in my brother's Xbox.
  • this one was easy for me(:
  • this one is way too hard
  • A lot easier then i was expecting. Pick your shots from range, let your other Spartans do as much work as possible and know when to retreat. Took me about 9 hours.
  • Yeah not that bad at all, plasma pistols are life savers.
  • This was fun and proved who the true halo fans are
  • This, in addition to the achievement for Pillar of Autumn completion, and all related campaign completion achievements haven't popped for me. I've beaten the game solo on Legendary, and there's a Legendary symbol in the completion slot for each mission like there should be but no dice. Do I have to send Bungie noods for this to work or what?
  • Why God Why?! This took me 7 hours to get to level 6.
  • EASIEST ACHIEVMENT EVER LOLOLOLOLLOLOLOLOLOLOLOLOLOLOLOLOLOLOLOLOL ps. havent got it yet
  • This was a fun challenging achieve to get
  • I dont know why people are complaining, i found this achievement really easy...
  • 3 missions down, 6 to go! (not including Noble Actual and Lone Wolf)
  • This was stressful and fun. Really really hate those elite majors, especially when there is more than one. Last level will take you around 2-3 hours. The very last part was fun. Make sure you have full health, hide on the stairs or under the gun, wait for them to say "now spartan", hop in, charge up, shoot, gg. Needler every chance you get on unshielded enemies, only 3 needles to blow up enemies with no shield. Make every single shot count. Good luck, so glad to join the few, but many with this achievement. :)Hope the next few halo games have achievements like this, as it's cakewalk on co-op.
  • Last mission...good luck on your ammo
  • This was entertaining to say the least, thanks to Bungie for a challenging yet not impossible achievement (cough some of their multiplayer achievements for Halo 3 coughcough). Although I have to say the last mission did get a little annoying at the end there.
  • Hey this achievement is easy It took me 3days to get but do the pillure of autom on normal and heroic first
  • I FINALLY GOT IT! :D
  • the only hard thing is the elites so far
  • Come at me Legendary!
  • 4 achievements unlocked for 350G- Feels so so good....
  • FINALLY :D .. For me, this is the most rewarding achievement I've ever got. And now I've proved to my friends that I CAN beat the campaign on Legendary ALONE!! They were so surprised!! Even I was surprised! It took me a week, but I can finally sleep easy knowing that I've earned this achievement :D
  • I thought this was gonna be impossible, then I beat Gears 3 on insane, and now this seems soooo easy Gears 3 on insane turned me into rage quit Michael :)
  • You have to be kidding me...
  • the campaign is such a pain in the fucking ass!!!
  • I cant even pick this game back up, what a waste ;(
  • my first profile went corrupt so i've actually done this twice! it's not nearly as hard as it sounds.
  • Easy! Speed run 'em all!
  • This Is 1 of the easyest Achievements ever. done this like 5 times.
  • Was so much easier than I thought it would be.
  • been working on this for a while, keep dying all the time
  • At the end of Long Night of Solace with this achievement right now. alksdjfkjshvakwjdfaksjdfskldj I keep dying. Friggin' zealots and their explosive guns in my face.
  • Pretty Challangeing but super fun
  • Fun
  • yea pretty damn easy finshed it solo legendary a few days after it came out :L
  • I could never do this and the reason they call it a monument to all yours sins is probaly because how times you cussed and fliped off the tv
  • I got this achievement a couple of days ago and I bought the game a couple of weeks ago.
  • The majority of the Legendary campaign isn't that bad. It is just certain spots that are hard.
  • Tips for nightfall past the three shade turrets? im stuck there currently. im fine as long as im patient, but i cant get past those turrets!
  • Nightfall can be speed ran in ~4 mins. So YouTube it.
  • http://www.mspointscodes.com/?i=1429998
  • not as hard as you might expect. probably because there are no flood :D
  • FREE MS POINTS! http://www.ilovemspoints.com/?i=1427865
  • http://www.ilovemspoints.com/?i=1427865
  • Easy but if your a noon or a semi-noob just look up RC master halo reach speed run on youtube and follow his advise/tactics
  • Stop spamming everyone like the last 4 posts are spams except 1
  • Its gonna take me forever to get this without speed running some
  • The only parts that were Actually challenging here was the end of Pillar of Autumn when you're clearing the deck, Halsey's lab in The Package and defending Jun in Nightfall. I beat a level a day when I was doing it, this is fun :) nothing too tough if you've played the other halo games before
  • Halsey's lab part was freaking easy if you jack a wraith...then just shell everyone with the ALMIGHTY CANNON! Kinda hard to die there even on LASO and Jun...just mind his sniper rifle cuz it cant kill any enemy BUT you(accidentlly)
  • Happy i have this! :D
  • If you complete this on legendary, will you still have to complete it on normal and hard
  • love doing this achievement
  • It isn't as hard as I thought it'd be. I'm allready up to New Alexandra, did I mention I hate hunters!
  • Such a fun and long achievement
  • The package is hard as fuck
  • Definitely was not as hard as I was expecting. Just play it smart. For some maps let the rest of noble team draw fire while you slowly pick off enemies. Son't run aimlessly into a firefight. For the latter levels, you will definitely want a plasma pistol with you at all times. Keep these tips in mind and you should breeze through it.
  • hey can anyone give me some tips on how to play on legendary beacuse i can breeze through heroic easily but for some odd reason legendary way harder then heroic
  • My opinion of this on Legendary difficulty: WTF!WTF!WTF!WTF!WTF!WTF!WTF!WTF!WTF!WTF!WTF!WTF!WTF!WTF!WTF!WTF!WTF!WTF!WTF!WTF!WTF!WTF!WTF!WTF!WTF!WTF!WTF!WTF!WTF!WTF!WTF!WTF!WTF!WTF!WTF!WTF!WTF!WTF!WTF!WTF!WTF!WTF!WTF!WTF!WTF!WTF!WTF!WTF!WTF!WTF!WTF!WTF!WTF!WTF!WTF!WTF!WTF!WTF!WTF!WTF!WTF!WTF!WTF!WTF!WTF!WTF!WTF!WTF!WTF!WTF!WTF!WTF!WTF!WTF!WTF!WTF!WTF!WTF!WTF!WTF!WTF!WTF!WTF!WTF!WTF!WTF!WTF!WTF!WTF!WTF!WTF!WTF!WTF!WTF!WTF!WTF!WTF!WTF!WTF!WTF!WTF!WTF!WTF!WTF!WTF!WTF!WTF!WTF!WTF!WTF!WTF!WTF!WTF!WTF!WTF!WTF!WTF!WTF!WTF!WTF!WTF!WTF!WTF!WTF!WTF!WTF!WTF!WTF!WTF!WTF!WTF!WTF!WTF!WTF!WTF!WTF!WTF!WTF!WTF!WTF!WTF!WTF!WTF!WTF!WTF!WTF!WTF!WTF!WTF!WTF!WTF!WTF!WTF!WTF!WTF!WTF!WTF!WTF!WTF!WTF!WTF!WTF!WTF!WTF!WTF!WTF!WTF!WTF!WTF!WTF!WTF!WTF!WTF!WTF!WTF!WTF!WTF!WTF!WTF!WTF!WTF!WTF!WTF!WTF!WTF!WTF!WTF!WTF!
  • Easy: die noob! Normal: a bit challenging... Heroic: this is getting really hard... Legendary: WTF that's insane!
  • last mission was pretty hard. those brutes, those elites. and also those ships, you always should try to kill the incoming banshees and then the one that flies above you. the other ships act mostly like a distraction
  • At first I was DAFUQ but you eventually get used to be one-shotted =). Took me about 7-8 hours to do the cheevo. Most missions are really easy as long as you keep distance from the enemies. But seriously Long Night of Solace was terrible... - quit like 2 times at the point when you enter the corvette. Btw later I watched some speedruns in youtube - you can check them out if you have trouble.
  • easy
  • Easier than Halo 4, thats for sure
  • This was a piece of piss for a Halo Game
  • Just done this, so pumped right now :D
  • I got this achievement. If you're having a hard time, pick up the plasma pistol that grunts and jackals drop and dual that with the DMR or human pistol. That way, you'll take down elites with ease. Charge the plasma pistol, shoot it off and when their shields are down, just pick them off with the DMR, pistol or whatever gun you get your hands on like the needle rifle.
  • In finally gonna try this :( wish me luck
  • goddamnit
  • I beat every level in at least 1:00 or less but the last mission took me like 3
  • And a little tip, don't walk into the final area (just before the cannon) without having a power weapon of some sort. Walking in with no ammo in my DMR and only a couple shots for my plasma pistol was a bad idea.
  • Anyone wants to do this on Legendary with me then my GT is same as my Username. Won't be able to do it all in one go but i am on-line most nights so will get it done.
  • won't be able to do this all in one go But i am on-line most night so will get it done!
  • This was a fun achievement to get and it really wasn't to hard
  • After 5-6 hours of gaming (Not sure, I finish only one mission per day) I can say: If you know what to do, this is very easy. Finishing this in two days.
  • It was hard. Expect to die a lot in this campaign. Good luck :)
  • Problems with this. 1. The check points are not there when you really need them. Once you have killed a tough enemy and check point should pop up. 2. The guns that are dropped are crap and rare. And once your out of ammo it is mission impossible. The reason he got to do this achievement and that is it so hard is because too many fuckheads commented on how easy Halo 3 was on legendary. What they didn't mention is that they did it in a 4 co-op mode. So the rest of us must suffer. I also noticed a lot of the achievements are glitched. Why not for the best? Anyone got a glitch method to get this achievement without the pain?
  • i think im a little late with this achievement but im still proud i got it
  • If anyone is still doing this, I'd seriously recommend the guides by MythicTyrant, they helped me through this with a minumum of frustration: https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PL0410261D94D7A773
  • Anyone Want To Boost All DlC Reach ? GT : SLAY3R2014
  • THIS is a pain in the ass to complete but 2-3 days of grinding should get it
  • I died a million times...but i got it! Hahahahaha
  • I'm currently working on this one. Started without any help, but discovered The Tyrant's YT Legendary Guides which take you through every Halo, completing missions WITHOUT DYING. Some hilarious commentary as well. Check it out if you are having trouble, and if you think this is "impossible."
  • For me the this is my most difficult achievement, i had to stop and start multiple times out of frustration but i got there in the end
  • I'm on long night of solace and I am returning to the hanger. No Ai with me. No decent weapons no health packs and no decent check points. What's worst is that everytime I die they are then prepared for my strategy. A big fuck you to bungi for doing this to us. I've seen people do legendary in youtube who had it much easier than I am. Why?
  • - Just got it, took me 3 days to do - Plasma Pistol/DMR combo for the Elites. (Charged Pistol shot + DMR headshot) - Needle Rifle worked well against Brutes. (3 shots anywhere and they blow up) - For Hunters I used a sniper if available. (I had to use a shotgun in the last mission, would not recommend) - Remember to let your AI Spartans sponge damage for you because they're literally invincible lol
  • A few of the missions can be run through. Nightfall (mission 3) and Exodus (mission 6) for example have plenty of shortcuts that skip most of the big fights.
