Halo: The Master Chief Collection

Halo: The Master Chief Collection Achievements


Complete all campaigns on Legendary difficulty.     

This achievement will unlock once all four Campaigns have been successfully completed on either a Solo Legendary playthrough or Cooperative Legendary playthrough. There are multiple methods in tackling the missions of each Campaign, but keep these general tips in mind when playing:

  • Utilize the Noob-Combo (Plasma Pistol/Battle Rifle) at all times when facing Elites and Promethean Knights; an overcharged Plasma Pistol shot will drain their shields, and a quick burst or two from the Battle Rifle will down these foes easily
  • Utilize vehicles – Ghosts, Banshees, Warthogs, etc. – as frequently as possible; their firepower helps clear out areas quickly and you can even drive past enemy encounters if the mission allows for it
  • When facing Hunters, get close enough so that they charge at you, allowing time to side step their attack; when the orange flesh on their back is exposed, shoot it, as this is their only weak spot
  • Don’t neglect the basics of using cover; when your shields drop down, hide behind a wall or crouch behind an object before charging back out into battle
  • Try exploring the levels and finding alternate routes behind or around the enemies; this can help save time by skipping major firefights, especially in Halo: CE and Halo 2.

Overall, because seasoned Halo players will be familiar with both level design and enemy behavior, completing each of the Campaigns on Legendary will be quite easy. Utilizing the Noob-Combo (Plasma Pistol/Battle Rifle) is by far the best tactic when dealing with shielded enemies; so don’t neglect these weapons just because a shotgun, sniper rifle, or sword is nearby. It doesn’t matter which order you complete the Campaigns or even if you decided to hop from one Campaign mission to another Campaign mission. Once all the missions in Halo: Combat Evolved, Halo 2, Halo 3, and Halo 4 have been completed on the Legendary difficulty setting, this achievement will be yours.

Hope this is the new Legendary symbol going forward, because Halo 4's was just plain ugly.

Just finished playing through all of the campaigns on Legendary today, ending with Halo 4. The achievement for doing it on Heroic popped, but the Legendary one didn't :/ I did use the scarab skull in Halo 2, and the bandana and such in Halo CE. Do any of these negate the achievement? Though I wouldn't have thought so if the Heroic one still popped..
