Halo: The Master Chief Collection Achievements


Halo 3: Find a lonely missing link.   

This Easter Egg can be found in the mission, Sierra 117.

On the first mission of the Campaign, there are unique hidden Cavemen that can be located in three distinct locations within the African jungle. The first of these Caveman can be located high above the tree line that runs parallel to the river where Johnson's Pelican is shot down. Utilizing a Battle Rifle to zoom in and scan the treetops will unlock "Missing Link" once you spot the Caveman.

The second location in the jungle ahead of this area. After clearing out the Covenant forces around the pump station, enter the jungle ahead and stick to the left. Continue jumping on the rocks along the path and you will eventually reach a large plateau where a family of Cavemen can be found. This family of Cavemen will unlock the Primate achievement.

The final Caveman can be located on a cliff just outside the boarders of the level in the area where Sergeant Johnson is being held prisoner. In order to reach this location, you will need to perform a complicated glitch to exit the mission’s boarders, however the Cavemen is still visible via a Sniper Rifle while standing on the bridge where Hocus picks you up. Whether you decide to reach this Caveman’s location via the glitch or simply by zooming in on his location, the "Haplorrhini" achievement will unlock once you spot him.

This is the "single" monkey Easter egg near the end of the level. You do not have to reach it via breaking the invisible barrier with two people. I can confirm I just did it by viewing at him through a sniper rifle scope for a few seconds from the bridge that he is across from.

#4 Achievement images are just random concept art, nothing to do with the achievement itself.

You can do this on EASY.

You DON'T have to start at the beginning!
Start at BRAVO rally point
(you can use Battle Rifle for all 3! You don't need sniper).

And immediately get:
"Missing Link: Watching. Waiting. Plotting."

Go a little further into the forest with the Jackal snipers and get:
"Primate: Halo 3: Find your first missing links."

Then at the end of the level you don't have to kill everyone (probably should kill Chieftain so he doesn't kill you), and look across the water to get:
"Haplorrhini: Halo 3: Find a lonely missing link."

finished in about 6 minutes.
