Who Needs Them?

Halo 3: On The Ark, complete the level without entering a vehicle on Legendary.    

As you progress past the initial firefights of this mission, you will immediately be made aware that this is predominantly a vehicle-emphasized mission given the open outdoor landscape and number of enemy Wraiths along the path to the main objective. Don’t let this intimidate you, for completing the mission on foot, though tedious, is entirely doable, especially if you are playing cooperatively with one or two other players.

With that said, avoid grabbing any Covenant Choppers, Ghosts, or Wraiths when battling the enemy in the several valleys within the canyon. In addition to this, you will also have to deliberately ignore any Mongoose or Scorpion vehicles that are dropped off via Pelican. As mentioned earlier, this achievement is better suited with cooperative partners as they can utilize the firepower of both Covenant and UNSC vehicles to kill enemy troops while you stay back on foot.

Once you enter the map room after several exhausting firefights against Brutes, Wraiths, and even a Scarab, the necessity of vehicles for the rest of the mission diminishes. Simply fight your way past the remaining Covenant units inside the structure and make your way towards the objective. When the final room inside the Cartographer has been cleared, approach the Pelican to finish the mission. If you managed to avoid using any vehicles throughout this mission, the achievement will unlock after the concluding cutscene.

Gamers are reporting that the achievement will not pop-up if you pick up a turret during the level, be careful with that!

We did complete this achievement for my friend as he didn't enter a vehicle. I, however, did. I entered every vehicle and he still got the achievement.

Rumours are that this is no longer attainable since the patch on April 21st. Completed the level with 3 other people last night with no one entering any vehicles - no one got it. Have to say we missed the above comment about no turrets though.

This is the consensus on TA also, where they have not tracked anyone getting it since April 21st when a Patch was dropped....

I just did this twice in a row and the achievement didn't pop. Anyone else having issues with this? I wonder if boarding the Scarab is considered entering a vehicle since I did this on my own. Thoughts?

2 hours of my day wasted. Didn't enter a vehicle or pick up a turret. This is the first achievement that I've tried to get that hasn't popped when it was supposed to.

@ #8 I know, but I was hoping it was a rumor, not a real thing. Which sucks.

If this gets updated please let me know.

I think of you jump on a Wraith to toss a grenade into it to blow it up...that counts as getting into a vehicle. I noticed that when I did my EASY run on Tsavo Highway. First run I jumped onto a Wraith and did the Left Trigger to plant grenade, and it didn't pop. Next run I just ran past the Wraith and it popped. My guess is even that grenade plant on a Wraith counts as boarding a vehicle so avoid that!

Just spent 3 hours attempting solo and I didn't get it. not sure if it isn't fixed or what. I never boarded and didn't use a shade turret. I did use a plasma turret a lot although I don't see how that would would as a vehicle.

Finally! I just completed it! It only took me 3 tries in total! (All together I mean.) The first 2 times was when the achievement wasn't attainable and the 3rd time was a success! Geez, what a pain in my ass. At least it's done. Also, Xenoc15795 - you can't pick up a turret. I know it's dumb, but "dem da rulz b".

This achievement is glitched, and will not unlock at all. I have completed the mission without entering a vehicle or going near a turret 5 times. I gave a rocket launcher to one of the soldiers before they entered the mongoose, and did not even board a wraith to destroy one. I only used the following weapons through the mission: Human sniper rifle, rocket launcher, fuel rod cannon, carbine, battle rifle, brute shot, covenant sniper rifle, the plasma pistol, and every grenade. I had gotten killed in the game about 25 times to complete the objective. 343 needs to either correct the glitch or remove the achievement from the list. The 10 point gamer score challenge needs to be added to a previous achievement listed or have a whole new achievement created.
