    If you are having trouble with this I found out something you can do.

    As you play through the level, save and quit at each elevator(or checkpoint). If you happen to die, turn your xbox off and then continue the level from the checkpoint.
    Since your not just hitting reload from last save it does not register that you died and allows you to get the achievement. I got mine with 7 deaths during the level.

    As suggested by illdizzog, if you reset after losing any health it is also a god way to get the He's Unstoppable achievement.

    EthigyThis is actually a fairly easy achievement, didn’t even die once. Just take your time, keep your distance, continuously lob grenades, and use the shotgun if they happen to get too close.

    Weird flex, but okay.

    iTz Canada EhhJust got it today with fairly little effort. As others have mentioned, definitely use the bandana skull and constantly spam grenades, and use the shotgun if they get close. If you take your time and don't press forward until all the flood in front of you are dead, you shouldn't have an issue with this. I didn't get a chance to try out the method as I never died, but I was following it just in case something unfortunate happened.

    I would definitely suggest doing this on Heroic as well, and not trying to pair it with the Legendary speed run achievement. First, that achievement is stressful on its own, and it's not worth the hours of headache you'll most likely endure while trying to finish the speedrun without dying. Second, Legendary has more enemies than heroic, plus they deal more damage. On Heroic, there are less enemies, plus you can take your time spamming grenades until everything is dead. I also grabbed the skulls/terminal on my no death run without any issues, so you can pair those together for some extra efficiency.

    Use this video, by legendary Halo speed-runner RC Master, to use tactics on how to survive The Library without a single death.

    However, I strongly recommend doing Speed Reader and That Just Happened separate. That Just easier than you think. Much easier than Speed Reader. I got it in one run, without having to use the checkpoint glitch (See darkwatchman's post at the top of the page). Just take it slow, never run-n'-gun it, make sure to have Bandanna, and practice those 'nade jumps! (Remember: Jump right as the grenade goes off, and crouch right at the ledge your trying to get to).

    Shockwave IICI actually found Speed Reader far easier than this. The reason for this is the Grenade Jumps. I'm not very good at them, but for some reason on Legendary I'd only lose 1 bar of health for each attempt (And for me it frequently took several) where as on Heroic I was losing 3 health bars for each attempt so the third attempt would kill me. Made no sense and made it harder for me than perhaps it should of been. To the point I'm tempted to do it on Legendary rather than Heroic. All that said, The video is great for learning how to do it.

    SRUSHTRight at the start, after the granadejumps and forward to the first locked door, that damn orb does not spawn so the door remain locked. tried several times now!

    This can be a very tricky one, but in essence its all about control and keeping your nerves. I would suggest using the bandanna skull combo with rocket launcher and shotgun.

    Take your time and clear properly if you rush you going to get killed more likely. always expect a ambush and retreat they like to get behind you.

    Watch out for the exploding mobs they will ruin your achievement. use grenades as they are extremely effective as with the shotgun.

    I would highly suggest that if you lose your shield your in a good spot to die and should pause and reload, in essence you really shouldn't lose it, shot gunners will prey on you.

    Once you clear waves keep moving and clearing the only part that seems to have infinite spawns is at the end, this can be tricky grenade and shotgun your way to the platform and watch where your standing i fell off right at the end once. Also if you are cooping have your partner go to the index platform first have him kill the flood then you can walk on as the spawns stop coming once you reach it.

    YonderGruntCan confirm you can die over Xbox live. We took turns helping each other out with multiple deaths on one account while the other died 0 times and we got it
