Halo: The Master Chief Collection

Halo: The Master Chief Collection Achievements


Halo CE: Finish The Silent Cartographer without shooting, grenades, melee, dying or restarting.   

Although this achievement sounds intimidating, this ten minute mission can easily be completed under such constraints when playing on the Easy difficultly setting. Take note that it has been reported to not unlock during Co-Op play, so it's best to perform it on your own.

As soon as the mission starts, turn to your left and head down the beach until you reach the overturned Warthog. From here, proceed up the hill to your right, leading you deeper into the island and eventually into the security room of an underground complex. After disengaging the control room's security mechanism, exit the complex, grab the overshield on the ground to your right, and drop down the cliff onto the beach. Hope inside the nearby Warthog and drive back to the map room's entrance.

Once there, you'll need to reach the bottom level of the facility and activate the cartographer before you're demanded to return topside. When you finally reach the top floor, push past the Elite wielding the Energy Sword, Hunter duo, and Stealth Elites. Now wait until the Pelican lands on the platform and when it does, get inside and the mission will end. If you managed to survive the mission without shooting, using grenades, melee attacking, dying, or restarting, the achievement will unlock.

Guessing all you have to do is follow your friend around while they kill everything?

It didn't say you can't splatter enemies in the Warthog, so there's a possibility.

Also I'd guess you could do this on Normal as well

Once you reach the Zealot with the sword you will have to run back the way you came and then go up the stairs to the right and jump off back down when he goes up there with you. You will then be able to outrun him and he will not follow you through to the pelican area.

Just tried this the "cheap" co-op way and it didn't work. :(

You can splatter enemies

I did it on easy and just drove the warthog letting the marines do all the killing.

If you die you can save and quit to resume at your last checkpoint instead of restarting the entire level

Here is a short video of how to get it WITHOUT having to deal with the sword guy.

I parked the warthog outside the final area in such a way where I could easily jump in and drive away from the sword guy and drive back when the pelican's ready. He got a good swipe in and my heart was racing but I still had a bit left on my overshield which saved me.
