Halo 4: Complete all Spartan Ops chapters on Legendary difficulty.    

Spartan Ops, the mission-based cooperative multiplayer mode supports up to four players across all 10 Episodes. Each of these Episodes contains 5 small Chapters, meaning that all fifty Chapters must be completed on the Legendary difficulty in order to unlock this achievement. If you decide to go about this through Co-Op play, the missions will prove to be a little easier as opposed to working alone since you will have extra firepower in order to eliminate the Covenant and Promethean threats. On the other hand, if you decide to work on this achievement in a Solo playthrough, you will also make natural progress towards the "Smooth Operator" achievement.

During your Spartan Ops playthrough, you will come to notice that most of the missions take place on recycled environments from the Single Player Campaign or the Multiplayer maps. As such, when playing on these environments, you should have a general understanding of the mission’s design structure and layout. The objectives through all fifty Chapters vary, as well. They will usually range from eliminating all the enemies in the area to defending a group of Marines or UNSC equipment.

Like the Halo 4 Campaign, make sure to keep these general guidelines in mind when powering through Spartan Ops.

  • 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/break their shields, while a follow-up three-shot burst to the head will kill the enemy
  • Utilize vehicles – Warthogs, Scorpions, and Mantises – whenever they are presented in a mission because their firepower will help clear out areas quickly
  • When facing Hunters, get close enough so that they charge at you as this allows time to side step their attack, and then shoot at the patch of orange flesh on their back (their weak spot)
  • When fighting massive groups of Prometheans, always kill Watchers first since they act as a Knight’s and Crawler’s defense unit by deploying Hardlight Shields, reconstructing fallen allies, and tossing back live grenades.
  • Try avoiding close-quarters combat with Knights since their arm blades will tear you to pieces in one swipe at times; pick them off from afar
  • 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

As a final note, it’s worth mentioning that you are given an unlimited pool of lives when playing through Spartan Ops. Unlike the Campaign, deaths do not revert your progress to a checkpoint. Instead, you will respawn in a safe-zone if you happen to die during the mission. All in all, once all fifty Chapters in Spartan Ops have been completed at the Legendary difficulty setting, this achievement will unlock.
