    Game: Halo 2 Classic
    Game mode: Custom Game
    Level: Ivory Tower

    This achievement is a little tricky as the criteria for unlocking it can be a little sketchy. I recommend grabbing the sword as that's how I unlocked it, but it should work with any weapon. Now, you'll want to go to the lowest level of the map, and stand as close as possible to the metal door next to the 3 story lift. Sit here for a couple minutes. It could take 2-6 minutes for the song to appear and finish, and it is almost impossible to hear in-game because of the ambient noises in the level.

    The achievement should unlock in-game but some have reported only unlocking it once they "End Game" from the pause menu.

    Halo 2 Custome Game (Classic)

    Create a new custom game on (classic) Ivory Tower. Start the game and walk to the door in the video. If you stand right next to it you can hear the music cue and the achievement will pop.

    It unlocked pretty quickly for me but it can take several minutes for the music cue to appear.

    Here is an achievement guide with English commentary! The sound cue is located behind the silver door by the elevator, so make your way there and wait a few minutes.

    Halo: The Master Chief Collection - Halo 2 - Siege of Ivory Tower - Halo 2: Listen to a hidden music cue in Halo 2. This achievement is fairly easy to unlock.

    On the map Ivory Tower, the beginning steps aren't confirmed but I followed them and my achievement popped. First make sure you have your crouch setting to toggle crouch NOT hold for crouch.

    When you spawn head to the bottom area and grab the energy sword. Walk over to the metal door, crouch and wedge yourself in the left corner.

    Now you sit there and wait.

    For me it only took about 2-3 minutes of crouching in the corner before the achievement pops. Wait patiently and your achievement should pop! Enjoy!
