    The achievement requires you do three Cross-game playlists

    (These include missions from Halo 1,2,3&4)

    Quickest playlists to complete under the cross-game section for this achievement are

    1. Get in the ring (3 missions)

    2. Guilty pleasure (3 missions)

    3. The Master Chief Saga
    (This playlist is 45 missions long as it has every single mission from all the games but it is required to unlock another achievement for its completion so you'll have to do it somewhere along the line if your planning to 4500G the game)

    Halo: The Master Chief CollectionLife StoryThe Life Story achievement in Halo: The Master Chief Collection worth 148 pointsComplete the Master Chief Saga playlist.

    The Achievement unlocked for me later on in the day several hours after I did my final third playlist, so if you don't get your achievement for doing the requirement it will unlock eventually.

    As of April 2015 this no longer works!!!!! It has been patched!!!!!!!!

    Ok. So i believe i'v found a massive short cut with the cross-game playlist. I have tested this 3 times and it has worked all the time!

    On your cross game playlists, you need to play the 3 which start with "assault on the control room". When playing, you need to do the de-spawn on the bridge (see video below, credit goes to Nak3d Eli).

    When you have completed the level and move to the next, play for a few moments, then save and quit. Upon Resuming your playlist, you will noticie that you have now skipped mission 2. Again, play as normal and complete. On the final level, the game will throw you in at the 2nd to last check point, saving you a massive amount of time.

    As a foot note, when I was playing 'Tanks, Tanks, Tanks", the thrid level, "the ark" threw me in near the end, skipping all the driving, and leaving only fighting on the bridges. It did the same on "infinity" as well. throwing me in right at the end. Completing the full playlist in no more than 10 mins.

    **update 30/01/2015**
    I have played and tested multiple times. 100% works. Doesnt seam to be patched.
    As the comments below state by 'shadow 00 fox' , on the playlist ''Hogs, Jets, Tanks, and Mechs'' you do have to play a full level of ''the storm'', however it does throw you in at the end still on infinity, cutting out the entire 3/4 of that level. This saves you a huge amount of time when grinding these.

    Pleas elike and comment so I can improve my future guides! :)
