    Best way to do it (12:50 timer for me) I've found is the following.

    Run past basically everything (take some pot shots here and there if you feel like it. Ditch the Pistol for a Plasma Pistol and use it + Assault to Quickly take down Elites. Practice that a lot, its critical later.

    Run to where you first get ouside, grab the warthog, drive it to where the tank is, but instead of grabbing the tank, grab the ghost a bit further up on the hill. Continue flying past everything, down into the tunnels, only getting off the ghost to open the giant blast doors (dodge hunters while you do this).

    Eventually you will have to go back inside, after driving your ghost past the barriers, over the invisible sword elite, up the hill and finally into the two turrents. Carry on in the same fashion as the last time, running past damn near everything until you get out to the giant snow bridge where you can see elites grabbing banshees.

    Instead of letting the Red Elite get into the first banshee, charge up a plasma pistol shot and fire it right into him, stunning him, either finish him off with a punch or take the banshee then and there if you are close enough. From here, fly to to the top of the structure, open the blast door, get back in the banshee to clear out the rabble (no reason to risk that sword elite spearing you) and fly into the control room!

    Moozipan CheeseActually, the hardest part was getting out of the Ghost, opening the massive doors, and getting back on the Ghost while the two Hunters were nearby, twice. You'll need a bit of luck on your side to not get continuously knocked about/killed by them while getting out of the Ghost or waiting for the doors to slowly open.

    GR34TD3STR0Y3RJust doing what you discribed was a breeze. I almost pulled it off normal even. On Easy its a breeze. I suggest getting a plasma pistol if only to get that red eliet to grab the banshi, and grab the rocket launcher with warthog. It super easy to run past most enemies, the few that help to kill can be down with the rockets. Also I found trying to kill that very last group with the Banshie got me killed much easier. That sword guy jumped up and killed me in the Banshie 3 times. RIGHT before that part you, where the hunters are, you can fill up on rockets without slowing down at all, and I took care of the last group with rockets which i think is even quicker than with the Banshie. I even missed the Banshie once, got killed by the other Banshie but they gave me a checkpoint at the Hunters, and despite dying twice, I still finished at 14;30

    Those going for the Goat Roped achievement (
    Halo: The Master Chief CollectionGoat RopedThe Goat Roped achievement in Halo: The Master Chief Collection worth 250 pointsHalo CE: Halo CE: Complete all Halo: CE Legendary campaign missions in under 3 hours.
    ) as well as this one (the goat roped achievement is for completing the halo combat evolved anniversary on legendary in under three hours) i followed this guy's video. Also, when you jump off of the bridge, I found it easier to jump off of the left side instead of the right like in the video. When you do this, no enemies will spawn past the bridge and makes it very easy. My time was around ten minutes but as you can see in the video it is possible to speed run in under seven minutes.

    Make sure to get practice with jumping off the bridge because, although not impossible, it is difficult.

    Credit for Pidgeonator for making this impressive video. Also, in order to get the Goat Roped achievement, you have to complete each level in under 18 minutes, so this method gives a lot of leeway time.

    If you play co-op, you can kill your second player then do the jump. Even if you miss, sometimes your second player will respawn down on the second cliff. This makes it way easier.

    BorshajenCan you do the jumps on the PAL version?
    Some claim it only works on the NTSC.

    Shadow XBLI think the PAL version might have slightly different geometry? Unsure.

    Would It've Killed You To Take The Elevator - Halo CE: Beat the par time on Assault on the Control Room.

    The speed runs are very easy to unlock when you set the difficulty to easy. As long as you know the path you need to run, only spend time killing any enemies that are necessary to eliminate.

    The par time for this mission is: 15 minutes.

    Complete the mission in under this time and your achievement should pop! Enjoy!
