Why Do This To Yourself?

Halo: Reach: Complete the Halo: Reach LASO Campaign playlist.   

As with any of the playlists dedicated to the Halo: Reach Campaign, the LASO Campaign playlist will task players with completing every mission on the Legendary difficulty with all skulls activated. As always, this achievement can be earned in either Solo or Co-Op play, though, given the perimeters of the Iron skull, it's highly recommended to attempt this with at least one cooperative partner.

What’s more, it’s important to remember that only scoring skulls will be activated. These generally reward players with higher score multipliers and bonuses to base enemy values (for Par Score achievements). Non-scoring skulls on the other hand are sometimes neutral, such as Grunt Birthday Party. Below, you can get a glimpse of all the skulls that will be activated in the Halo: Reach LASO Campaign playlist.

  • Black Eye - Your shields only recharge when you melee enemies. Bash your way to better health!
  • Blind - HUD and weapon do not display onscreen
  • Catch - Enemies throw and drop more grenades
  • Cowbell - Acceleration from explosions is increased
  • Famine - Weapons dropped by AI have half the ammo they normally would. You might want to pack an extra magazine
  • Grunt Birthday Party – Grunt headshots lead to glorious celebrations
  • Iron - Death carries a heavy price. Dying in co-op resets you at your last saved checkpoint. Dying solo restarts the level
  • IWHBYD - Rare combat dialogue becomes more common
  • Mythic - Enemies have increased health
  • Thunderstorm – Upgrades the rank of most enemies
  • Tilt – Enemy resistances and weaknesses are increased
  • Tough Luck – Enemies always go berserk, always dive out of the way, never flee

As a few general tips, keep the following suggestions in mind when tackling this achievement.

First, take combat slowly and try picking off enemies from afar with short controlled bursts of medium-ranged weapons like the UNSC Magnum and/or DMR or the Covenant Needle Rifle. Since your HUD and weapon will not appear on screen, it may take some time in getting used to the “blinded” touch. Also, choose your shots wisely and always aim for vulnerable weak spots since ammo is scarce on the battlefield and enemies will have increased health and resistances.

Second, enemies are going to be agile in combat, diving away from your shots and throwing a lot of grenades, so don’t forget the basics of cover, and, when necessary, close-quarters combat, especially since shields will only recharge upon melee attacks.

There are several mission-specific strategies and tips to note, but, for the sake of a more comprehensive approach in outline of this information with the added bonus of a visual walkthrough, feel refer to utilize THIS VIDEO PLAYLIST, courtesy of Halo Completionist for all your LASO-related needs.
