Halo 4 Achievement List Revealed

Lee Bradley

Here it is folks, 343 Industries has released the Halo 4 achievements list and it's looking good.

There's no insane multiplayer cheevos, by the looks of it, so that’s a good start. There’s also a few creative ones like Midnight Launch, in which you must “get significant air in the Warthog at mightnight.” That sounds like it could be a laff.

And what else? Well, Roses vs Violets in an obvious Red vs Blue reference and tasks you with finding some of the game’s RvB Easter Eggs, there’s a couple of cheevos that will make you play levels in a completely different way, Chief Smash! confirms that the Gravity Hammer is back, and Explore the Floor sound like it could be fun.

All in all a great little list, then. And remember, there’s going to be more achievements for the game dropping in conjunction with those Spartan Ops episodes, so this list is going to get a lot bigger too.

Just ***BE WARNED***, dig too deeply and you may find ***SPOILERS***. If you’re of a sensitive nature in that regard, might be best for you to steer clear.

  • A fairly nice achievement list, I'd say. If only there were some more actual challenges like Anniversary or Reach's list.
  • Standard Halo list.
  • This looks like a promising list to complete. This excites me!
  • Definitely going to hate Lone Wolf Legend. The solo achievement in Reach was a lot more work than fun.
  • @2 not really theres a lot more multiplayer cheevos, names are a litte more desrciptive and different but good.
  • Oh sh*t, not another solo legendary. The one on reach nearly made me pull out my hair by the end.
  • Soo, 2 playthroughts 1. Solo Legendary 2. Coop Heroic About that solo, i actually wouldnt do it in Halo 3, Halo 3 was very very hard for me, and then im not even talking about crazy Halo: CE! Hehehehe. But Reach was easy as hell for me so i bet Halo 4 is not going to be much different, most of those new games those years are easier and easier.
  • Reach wasn't too hard alone on legendary, only a few parts gave me issues. Hopefully this game is a bit harder.
  • My goodness this looks easy, should have half of it just playing the main menus and one play through. And yes I do have Reach's "A Monument to All Your Sins" and will be going for it again on this one.
  • I've been pulling mortardom since halo 3 ;)
  • Looks pretty doable.
  • I'm not a fan of Halo in anyway but I'm a huge fan of the the Lone Wolf Legend achievement. I wish more games like Gears 3 would have done this, oh well I guess its enough for me to know I beat it on Insane by myself. Still an achievement would have been nice.
  • Nice red vs blue reference
  • Lone Wolf Legend gonna be a a bitch. I still haven't beaten Reach solo legendary, but I'm gonna do it in this.
  • @4 LOL ?!
  • Cannot wait for this game, have loved every halo game to date :-)
  • No achievements for skulls? They must be already unlocked. I hope it isn't the usual list of skulls and they at least change more than a few around for this trilogy.
  • Lol I was just reading the IGN article yesterday about the Halo 4 Soundtrack and wondered when the achievement list might be released.
  • The MP Achievements are a bit whack. Would love some "Kill X amount of enemies" Achievements on a Halo game or "Play X amount of games". Generic, I know, but I'd love working towards those in Halo. Wouldn't feel the grind as much.
  • i'm glad there is no achievement like get a double kill with the sparten laser or get a double kill from the grave, those were a pain in the arse if you tried to get them without boostin, anyway cannot wait for this game
  • Well, for me there are too many co-op and multiplayer achievements, but I am really happy to see the Lone Wolf achievement as in my humble opinion, those that manage to complete games on the hardest difficulty without needing to rely on others, should be recognised. I've completed most of Anniversary on Legendary, and completed all the other Halo games on Legendary on my own. In fact I have only ever played one campaign in co-op, and that was Gears 3, but before I did that, I played the campaign on Insane on my own and was disappointed that you could not differentiate between those that did it solo and those that did it co-op. At least with Halo 4 I hope I'll be able to wave my wily with pride!
  • Damn! I meant willy, not wily!
  • @4 Really? Halo: Reach legendary solo was really easy. I actually found it more fun than on easier difficulties.
  • LOL @ all those 5G multiplayer achievements, wtf. Easy list, should be 1ked within a few days :)
  • If there was achievement called suit up I'd swear with all the bro talk in achievements barney from how I met your mother is helping in creating the games, multiplayer just killing people you get killed kill cam shows you a Spartan just checking his suit and acts like he's fixing his tie and says to you yes I am awesome
  • @24 will take a few weeks thanks to the sparten ops ones :D list is kind of easy actually, i was hopeing for complete the game on legendary solo with all skulls on (aka mythic difficulty) now thats a true challenge)
  • Looks to be a fairly easy list. I'm sure it will get harder when the dlc starts coming out. I could see an "While jetpacking and wearing Wetwork, assassinate someone after being stuck on ur right little toe" achievement.
  • i looked here and saw the achievement pics http://halo.xbox.com/blogs/Headlines/post/2012/08/22/The-Halo-Bulletin-82212.aspx
  • can this game just be released already lol, my special edition pre order is burning hole in my pocket
  • Is Skullduggery a 1G achievement or is that a typo? Nothing else ends in a 9 or a 4...
  • @1 there are 2 achievements related to completing challenges; how many more do you need? I don't think the list can be considered easy or hard yet; no idea how hard solo legendary or spartan ops is gonna be...
  • Man I'm still butt hurt about this game coming in about 70 odd days! I'm dying here!
  • No insame MP, so thats good. I may get this game after all. This list looks more fun than I thought it would.
  • These look way too easy :(
  • Not sure why people thought Reach on Legendary Solo was hard, it was pretty easy compared to Halo 2. Anyways, this list is alright, but that's about it. There's nothing that amazing about it like Anniversary; I think they should have cut the Multiplayer cheevos down and added to the Campaign.
  • @30, it's worth 10G man.
  • i liked the campaign list until the damn solo legendary. Trying to do it on reach now got 5 missions down. Yes i suck at shooters.. Hopefully i can finish it before this comes out
  • Actually, Reach's Legendary solo campaign was statistically easier than co-op. If you did it co-op, there were more elites/hunters/chieftains. Of course, the trade off is that you could respawn...
  • Lone Wolf Legend - Complete the Campaign solo on Legendary difficulty. - 90 points Great.....
  • easy 1000G
  • i was hoping some multiplayer achievements like ''Get 10000 kills in war games'' or ''get 100 MVP in war games''....I really need some challenge in halo
  • Only 8 missions/levels?? Wa-wa.
  • i really hope legendary isn't has hard has reach was mulitplayer achievements look easier then halo reach as well witch is good because i don't like multiplayer that much but i like halo
  • Meh..
  • ah crap, another legendary SOLO achievement... still, Reach wasn't that hard on legendary, sure it wasn't exactly a "Piece of Cake" but it wasn't impossibly hard like Halo 3 and ODST are, i still haven't done them on legendary yet!
  • @42 343i has said the overall campaign is considerably longer than the previous games.
  • Yay No ridiculous right time, right map multiplayer achievements
  • Regarding the Lone Wolf Legend (Complete the Campaign solo on Legendary difficulty) achievement: This is just guessing but 343 made Halo: Combat Anniversary Evolved so that you could finish Legendary using skulls (including the infinite ammo one) without negating the Legendary completion achievement itself so I'm hoping we will see a repeat this time. Be hopeful guys.
  • @46 I take it that means the missions/levels will be quite long then? @42 I was also upset about only 8 missions/levels! :( Apart from that it's a great achievement list like usual :)
  • The multiplayer achievements actually look not too bad, not as annoying as Halo 3's.
  • @4 I actually did not find it that difficult, excluding the mission on Boardwalk..... But this list looks great !
  • I'm VERY GLAD my prayers came to effect: no ridiculously hard MP cheevos like Overkill and Killtacular from H3. Man, those are a pain in the ass! This list is very doable, I love it! I can now sleep at night. Please 343i, when the new MP maps roll in, don't make the new cheevos that hard.
  • thank god.achievements just for winning matches,customizing your spartan, campaign and spartan ops :) gonna be an easy 1000gs :D
  • I'm a big halo 3 fan but ever since odst... Halo hasn't been the same.
  • Don't know why people would be down-voting #3, he's absolutely right; this is a typical Halo list. They've been pretty much the same since ODST.
  • Lets just hope the DLC achievements dont suck like they usually do;) cannot wait to get back into halo again its been too long
  • im so ready for this game to drop now we just wait for the dlc achievements but damn that spartan ops SEEMS like it will be long and time consuming due to the fact it has 5 chapters maybe more who knows but maybe they will be short and so much fun that we wont even care
  • Should be a very easy list for any above average Halo player. I've beaten Halo: Reach and CE: A on legendary, so this shouldn't be too hard. Still need to do Halo 2 Vista to finish off the 1000. Now that will be difficult. Looks good though! I imagine myself playing this game beyond getting the 1000.
  • why the hell are the solo achievements there? its so much more fun in coop, stupid 343 tards cant come up with anything better then "beat the game on legendary solo". "bros to the close" also looks like an annoying as hell achievement seeing as the AI in halo is more interested in driving off the side of a cliff (aka Kat)then staying alive. Think ill be skipping this one as it looks more like crysis then halo. After ODST came out, halo has been going downhill with every release and dlc is just horrible.
  • Halo Reach was not difficult, people really need to stop whining. Also, @59, this achievement list is perfect the way it is.
  • 8 missions -.- it better be long AF
  • On a game that prides itself on co-op fun, I am not sure why they keep adding these 'solo legendary' achievements. That is my only gripe. Reach wasn't that hard, but something tells me they are going to raise the bar this time, and I can at least enjoy legendary if I am tackling it with friends. I don't want an excuse to throw the game disc across the room and take a chance with accidentally decapitating one of my dogs.
  • halo always comes through with a good list ..cant wait to play it
  • "Explore the Floor" That's my favorite achievement on the list lol.
  • Y is there a 1 gs achievment but no 9? the 1 gs achievment is Skullduggery
  • i love the solo legendary achievements.That way it sorts all the coop legenday weiners from the rest of us.
  • solo legendary is how i play the game the first time anyway so i can get the achievement out of the way and enjoy the game the second (yes i should do it the other way around but i do it the hard way first)
  • Couldn't look for fear of even the slightest spoiler.
  • Nice list looking forward to completing this I have completed the Halo series well all of them except Halo 2 PC but I don't play PC, still looking forward to completing another Halo this looks very manageable 8 missions huh? They must some long damn missions if 343 claims they are longer than the games in the series. I see they put alot of the emphasis on Spartan Ops which is good its like a second campaign can't wait this is gonna be fun!
  • the lack of BS achivments like double kill with laser in ranked ffa or assassinate someone whos coming out of armorlock makes me happy.
  • Excited for this! Cheers on getting a list up so fast!
  • they could have done without the Solo legendary run
  • When playing games like Call of Duty on Veteran, you get used to the difficulty. However, Halo will test all your skills in hair ripping fun!
  • Damn, I excepted to see a Solo Legendary Run with ALL SKULLS ACTIVATED. That would be a tough challenge!
  • Why are people saying "Easy 1k"?For all we know Halo 4 can be like Halo 3.Which,is Insanely difficult on Legendary.If it is,were fucked.
  • @74 Be quiet saying things like that. You might give them ideas.
  • The achievement list seems a little dry compared to previous halo achievement lists. Also, from the looks of it, there are only 9 missions in the game compared to the 10 missions in previous games. It's 9 because you get an achievement for mission 8 and the next achievment is for completing the game. I think only the spartan rank achievement would take a little time maybe but everything else sounds like a cake walk. Easy 1000 imo.
  • Not only is this extremely dry, but it's the easiest achievements of ALL Halo's. What the hell... You can get an achievement for small stuff like changing your service tag?
  • LOL at all you noobs whining about solo legendary There are way too many easy achievements, I'm disappointed. The only one that looks somewhat challenging is the solo on legendary achievement. There's should be at least one more difficult achievement, like getting a perfection medal in multiplayer like halo 3 has
  • Campaign better be good if achievements are that easy
  • i like how people are complaining about how easy the achievements are. Nobody freaking played it yet so how would anybody know? please bitch about achievements when the game has been released would you?
  • why is everybody complaining about how many missions there is 343 have already said its campaign is longer than odst's was and the spartan ops is also longer than odst was so overall the game is at least twice the length of odst which is good looking forward to doing lone wolf legend already completed anniversary halo 3 and reach on legendary just doing odst now.
  • going to play war games until my head explodes, then campaign heroic solo then in a week or two legendary, lastly sparton ops
  • campaign on Normal solo then war games until i get SR-25 then some spartan ops after that war games until i reach a very very high rank and then finish the campaign on heroic and then play war games and spartan ops until halo 2 anniversary comes out
