Halo: The Master Chief Collection Achievements

Living Legend

Halo CE: Complete every level of the game on Legendary difficulty.     

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

  • Utilize the Pre-Noob-Combo (Plasma Pistol/Magnum Pistol) at all times when facing Elites; an overcharged Plasma Pistol shot will drain their shields, and a quick Magnum round to the cranium will down the warriors easily
  • Utilize ground vehicles – Warthogs, Scorpions, and Ghosts – as frequently as possible; their firepower in missions such as Halo, Silent Cartographer, and Assault on the Control Room will help 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
  • When squaring off against the Flood, keep a Shotgun on hand; it’s the best weapon to use against the parasite
  • 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 on levels such as Truth and Reconciliation, Silent Cartographer, and even The Library.

Overall, because seasoned Halo players will be familiar with both level design and enemy behavior, completing the entire Campaign on Legendary will be quite easy. Once all the missions in Halo: Combat Evolved have been completed on the Legendary difficulty setting, this achievement will be yours.

Did every level on Legendary (They all have the icon as well in the mission selection, and didn't get it.) Nothing more frustrating.

Will this and the heroic achievement unlock if it's done via the playlist? Or must it be done via the mission menu?

#19 (and anyone else wondering) - YES, my buddy and I just completed all levels on Legendary Co-Op with the Bandana Skull on. A tip I read in a different forum suggested beating all levels on Easy (or any difficulty, really) FIRST before doing the Legendary run with the Bandana Skull. Seems people were jumping in on Legendary, getting the Bandana Skull, playing with it on, and not getting the achievements for a) beating the levels individually and b) beating the campaign on Legendary.

Completed this today. Did it all using the bandana skull so as mentioned by someone further up this is feasible, and imo highly recommended. Infinite grenades makes this so much simpler. Did campaign on easy to refresh my memory of the levels then started legendary. Library and 2 Betrayals Coop because feck library and 2 betrayals since there were other achs for that level (dont kill grunts and never change out weapons), with the other 8 levels solo.

It didnt pop immediately which had me cursing a little but it popped when I went back into the mission select and scrolled through all 10 missions a couple of times to double check which diff I had done them on and that I wasnt losing my mind
