Cowardly Grunt

Halo 2: Listen to the Cowardly Grunt's woes.   

This Easter Egg can be found in the mission, Uprising.

The Cowardly Grunt is a unique dialogue enemy that can only be found in the aforementioned mission. After clearing out the first large room after the main cavern, you can find this Grunt cowering in fear next to two other dead Grunts. Upon approaching the Grunt, he’ll bark, "Please, no hurt! Me like Elites. Brutes stinky bad bad. Me stay here, make sure no Brutes come behind mighty Arbiter. Heh, heh... Eh?" Take note however that this line of dialogue will only work once all the Brutes in this room are dead. After the Grunt has finished talking, the achievement will unlock.

This achievement doesn't work for me. I killed all of my elites and then killed all of the enemies, still no grunt talk. Did this multiple times. Also, I'm so bad at this game that I died like 20 times on this mission on Normal..

I can confirm i got this on 2nd try. 1st try i killed my elites and all enemies but achievement didnt unlock. 2nd try i left my elites alone and killed all enemies (elites killed a few) then the achievement unlocked after looking at the coward grunt for 2-3 seconds.

Turn off all skulls and kill every brute leading up to, and in the room with the grunt. I made sure every enemy was dead just to be on the safe side and the achievement should pop
