Halo: The Master Chief Collection

Halo: The Master Chief Collection Achievements

Leave It Where It Lay

Halo CE: Complete Two Betrayals on Legendary difficulty without picking up a new weapon.    

At the start of this mission, you will be equipped with a Plasma Pistol and Shotgun. In order to obtain this achievement, you cannot switch out either weapon at any point in the mission. Fortunately, these weapons are rather useful against the both the Covenant and the Flood, and since both factions will often time battle one another, this reduces the ammo you need to expend on the enemy.

Attempting this achievement with a Co-Op partner is recommended as one player can swap out their starting weapons for more something more effective like a Rocket Launcher or Needler. In addition to this, if one player dies, they will respawn with an Assault Rifle, though this does not void the achievement. Once the final pulse generator has been disabled, the achievement will unlock providing you haven’t swapped out either of your weapons during the mission.

Did this in co-op but let myself be killed so the other could use the shotgun
But spawning with the asault rifle appearently counts as picking up a new weapon

@#5 some achievements such as level progression and game completion achievements are disabled but collectible achievements can be obtained with them on as on Halo 2 certain skulls are needed to get with skulls like the Sputnik skull however I'm unsure of this achievement as I haven't tried it yet

I've had achievements unlock fine so far with Bandana skull on. Even others. It just disables Par Score/Time achievements as far as I've noticed.

I'm an easy going, team player that gets along with almost everyone.
Feel free to add me for co-op game-play and help with achievements.

I just did this with 2 controllers, I accidentally picked a weapon up with the wrong controller and reloaded the checkpoint but still got the achievement.
