Halo: The Master Chief Collection Achievements

Lone Wolf Legend

Halo 4: Complete every level of the game on Legendary difficulty, by yourself.      

This achievement will unlock once all eight missions of the Halo 4 Campaign have been successfully completed on a Solo Legendary playthrough. There are multiple methods in tackling the missions of the Campaign, but keep these general tips in mind when playing:

  • Utilize the Noob-Combo (Plasma Pistol/Battle Rifle or DMR) at all times when facing Elites and Knights; an overcharged Plasma Pistol shot will drain their shields, and a quick three-shot burst to the head will down the enemies easily
  • Utilize vehicles – Warthogs, Scorpions, Ghosts, and Banshees – as frequently as possible; their firepower in mission such as Forerunner, Reclaimer, and Shutdown 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 Prometheans, always kill Watchers first; they act as a Knight’s defense unit
  • Try avoiding close-quarters combat with Knights; their arm blades will tear you to pieces in one swipe at times
  • 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 Forerunner, Reclaimer and Composer

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. If a text-based walkthrough is necessary, be sure to visit THIS GUIDE for further assistance with this achievement. Once all the missions in Halo 4 have been completed Solo, on the Legendary difficulty setting, this achievement will be yours.

One of the only achievements I didn't have fun getting. Just not as fun solo. :

I agree with #3
I play these for the fun coop, and I really don't have nearly as much fun solo as I do in coop.

Is the glitch from Halo 4 still in the game? If it is all you have to do is beat each level from the last rally point on legendary. makes it so much easier.

This achievement glitched for me. I completed it and got the Legend of 117 but not this one. It says it's stuck at 87 percent but I have completed all missions

#6 I had the same problem. It glitched for me as well for Requiem. For some reason it registered the achievements that involving completing a co-op level on normal, heroic, and legendary, even though it showed I did it on solo. If you got those achievements you need to repeat the level that gave it to you. That's what I had to do for Requiem.

And to top it off the glitch from the original isn't still in so we have to do it all.

Wow, so pissed I just realised there is only one achievement for solo lengendary. Just finished CE on lendenary solo and got nothing. What happened to all the solo legendary achievements?!? Wtf!

Ohhh great it's glitched. Played every level solo in legendary but still haven't got it.

Just finished on Legendary Solo checked my progress after not getting the achievement only have credit for 4/8... Won't even tell me which 4 I've got credit for or didn't :<

Hey H2O you may have the same problem as me. I figured out that 2 of my levels say I've done them in co-op and not solo. Still haven't figured out which ones yet but try figure it out and replay them, if that's any help.

Just found out how to see which levels you're missing..

Game keeps track of score whether you want it to or not

Go top

Options & Career
Campaign Scoring
Difficulty: Legendary
Players: Solo

I did all 8 missions solo but gives me credit for 4, the other 4 it said I had two Players and told me which maps. The maps it said I had two in I did in the Halo 4 Legendary Playlist instead of "Main Menu" "Campaign". Might be a glitch or something, guess I'll try the 4 I said I had two not on the Halo 4 Playlist and see what happens.

While the game tracks whether you've finished a mission solo or not, the game utilizes the statistics on the scoring screen when checking if you finished a level solo or not.

Basically, if save & quit and resume the game later, at the end of the mission the end mission screen appears as two of your own profile, which counts it as two players. I find this rather odd, especially since the game clearly shows that you've finished the game solo on legendary.

YES, just got it. Had to replay requiem and infinity and it finally counted for me doing it solo. Persistence does pay off. Good luck to anyone else out there who suffered like me. I have faith you'll get it.

Gone in to the menus and I still can't see where it tells you what ones your missing, I'm on 91% complete so there's only 1 to do even though I done them all solo. Amount of achievement glitches in this game!

It was composer but it's what #17 said, only mission I saved on cos I had to go out so don't save/resume! Complete the missions and if you need a break restart from mission select and do not resume

Screw 343 seriously. I only completed 3 missions solo according to halo while I have done them all solo. This achievement can kiss my ass. I already hate halo 4 and I'm not gonna replay 5 missions.

That whole not being able to save/resume thing sucks. I've beaten the game on legendary but no achievements and I have no idea what mission I have to redo.

Saving and resuming works for me... I just have to levels to go. I just check to see if the percentage goes up after each level.

#26 is smart keep track after each level and if it didn't count it just replay it I've sunken more time on Halo 4 then any other Halo it's the only Halo on 360 that I got all the original 1000G on and the only Halo I solo Legendary (only 2 DLC achievements that didn't need to be on certain maps I got too but all original 1000G I got) so overall I've played Halo 4 the it my favorite? No Halo 2 is but I enjoy Halo 4's gameplay more I just love the story of Halo 2 more I am a little annoyed that there's an achievement to do all 100 Spartan Ops missions on Legendary Solo only because they get tedious...I wonder if all the RvB Easter Eggs are in Spartan Ops still lol

@27 as of right now you can get all of the level completion achievements for Spartan Ops by starting each chapter individually and then save/quit the second that it loads.

Hurry though before it gets patched out.

You can get this achievement co-op.

Originally, we were playing through Reclaimer Legendary with three people and pretty much at the very end of the level we were disconnected. It put us all into our own game. So, we all finished the level within a couple minutes. The game gave us credit on the achievements for completing the level.

We just finished out another level (Shutdown for testing purposes) where we ran through the level as fast as possible, and before we pulled Cortana and jumped, I, as host, disconnected the ethernet cable for one second and plugged it back in. It kicked us to our own games, we completed the level seperately, and the percentage went up on the snapped achievements for both of us.

We will do more testing with all the levels, but as of now, you can

Agree with #29. This is how I got a few levels finished.

Just verified again with "Dawn". Played through online with a friend, and after you fire the missle and regain control, I pulled the cable for one second and we both got credit for beating the level on Legendary solo. Snapped achievement percentage increased.

Comment #32 by elevenution
Friday, April 10, 2015 @ 10:52:11 PM

Well, I don't know if anyone else still needs verification, but my buddy and I completed the achievement fully co-op with the disconnect method.

Just make sure you know when the end of the level is, otherwise you have to complete it without your co-op partner. Easy enough to do, but we were wanting to just get it done. Respawns and double the firepower make that go a lot quicker.

Okay. SO. A friend and I completed two co-op missions in MCC Halo 2 (on legendary). I already beat it previously with another friend, so when I played it with this second friend, he didn't get the credit for completing it in co-op, and I couldn't since I already had the credit already. The reason he didn't was because he didn't sign out properly the last time he played, so when we played, he just hit "okay" to acknowledge the message about improper sign-in. We assume that's why he didn't get credit. Now to my point... I noticed I got credit on for beating MCC Halo 4 - Shutdown on solo legendary, but in reality I've never played it solo, but I HAVE played Shutdown in co-op, and my time on for Shutdown solo legendary just had a line through it. SO... I have

[....continued....] yet to test this theory, but I THINK if a co-op partner just turns off the console (instead of going to the dashboard, highlighting the MCC box, then pressing start and going to "Quit"), then turns it back on without closing out of MCC and instead just presses "Okay" on the MCC's sign-in error message, it tricks the game into thinking the co-op partner is offline and you can then play co-op and get full credit for playing it solo (with the exception of no time being entered). Again, I have yet to test this because my real friends aren't as enthusiastic about achievements as I am and they don't want to waste the time on such a "test," so I'm not 100%, but my theory seems to be correct based upon the evidence. Can anyone else prove or refute this?

I'm an easy going, team player that gets along with almost everyone.
