Halo: The Master Chief Collection

Halo: The Master Chief Collection Achievements

Goat Roped

Halo CE: Halo CE: Complete all Halo: CE Legendary campaign missions in under 3 hours.   

As one of the four Legendary speed running achievements, this achievement will prove to be one of the most difficult tasks within the entire collection. It's worth noting that you may want to grab a Co-Op partner when working on this achievement for two reasons. One, the extra firepower will help put down enemies a little quicker. Secondly, one player can usually act as a decent distraction while the second player attempts to push on and run by as many enemies as possible in an attempt to grab the next checkpoint.

This essentially means that you may want to replay individual missions dozens of times in order to perfect your runs and learn new tactics in skipping various firefights. Unfortunately, a text-based guide would be too tedious in explaining every single mission within the game, so please refer to THIS LINK for an in-depth look at completing Halo: CE's Legendary Campaign in under three hours. A huge thanks goes out to Naked Eli for providing the video content.

As confirmed by Sun100, this achievement does not need to be attempted in one continuous run. Rather, the game will track your best time on each mission completed on the Legendary difficulty setting and add them up for a grand total. When a new "Personal Record" is set for that mission, it will override the previous tracked time. This essentially means that you can tackle a mission multiple times in an attempt to perfect your speed run.

NOTE: By following the speed running tactics provided in the video link above, you will almost certainly obtain the Par Time achievement for each of the Campaign's ten missions. This means that if you have yet to grab the Par Time achievements on the Easy or Normal difficulty setting, they can be stacked on the Legendary difficulty setting while working on this achievement.

Also willing to create a good group to do the multiplayer achievements, and these Speedrun (legendary is already difficult.. so as many people as we can get will be nice),

Add me, invite me to your party and lets play

This is best boosted. Either local multiplayer or online. Best to have the maximum amount of players too. Always keep one player back so that the others can spawn right next to them without having to restart the check point.

Go for head shots. The grunt funeral skull might help, but I can also be risky as it has been known to kill important a.i team mates (which will automatically put you back to the check point)

I have read that this doesn't have to be done in one sitting.

I will like to get this early too. Same as my user name for my Xbox live.

looking to beat more of these with people, beat a few by myself but honestly would like that extra player around to spawn on and not lose 2-5 minutes for this nonsense lol.

If you're looking to do this, PLEASE be somewhat decent; not asking for perfection, but i'd like to save us both the stress if you're just looking for an easy ride with me doing all the work

another thing to mention is it doesn't have to be done in one run it takes your best times on Legendary so if you're only at 3 hours and 5 mins try and beat each level by about another 45 seconds-a minute and it'll unlock you can do this missions in any order

Tuesday, January 20, 2015 @ 10:02:56 AM

if you want to do this alone, the easy way to not waste to much time after dying is to save and exit game after dying, and than resume. The time will be the same as when checkpoint poped up :)

As a note for this one you can combine single player and co-op times.
Some levels are definitely easier co-op, but others (Due to being able to save and quit & restart at the last checkpoint) are better single player.

I'm currently at 3:05:23 and that includes about 50 mins on Truth & Rec.
Single player levels should be P.O.A, Silent Cart (and ram the car half through the door rather than power slide s it's much easier) & Library. Keyes can also be done either single player or co-op but if you get a good save point for the glitch single player is easier.

Would definitely recommend AotCR on co-op. Clear the first room, drop down under the bridge, have one person try the hard jump & if they die have the 2nd player immediately run off edge (before dead player comes back!!). If they hi

& if they die have the 2nd player immediately run off edge (before dead player comes back!!). If they hit the ledge but slide off slowly the 1st jumper will respawn on the ledge you're trying to make!

My level break downs are approx.
5m48, 22m odd (need to improve), about 50min (didn't even try grenade jumps), 7m, 9m30, 12m ish, 18m15, 25m, 5m15 & 16m30.

Comment #39 by Violent Jmann
Sunday, July 26, 2015 @ 07:57:25 AM

I will be attempting this at some point. Here is my guide. Make it a 4 player Co op. Have one person stay back at all times (not too far back but enough to be safe) have one guy be the middle guy (good if you are going for scoring too) his job is to distract the enemies. The other two pushes forward one being there incase the other one dies do that he can continue to the next check point. At each check point everyone automatically spawns to it. I say turn on the graveyard skull. It could be called something else. The one that makes dead grunts turn into bombs.

I think this method will prove to be much easier and I for one shall be looking forward to attempting this method.

the good news is that Legendary runs are mainly for the Par Score and the under 3 hours achievements while the Par Time achievements can be obtained on easy where the only thing you have to worry about is time and since you're op on Easy you can beat areas quicker
