    Mission: The Oracle

    This takes place near the beginning of the level, when you enter the first large room. In this room, go to the right side where you will notice 4 pillars standing closely together. You'll want to jump on the left pillar and then turn to face the middle of the room. Use your gun to shoot out the glass tube above, and then crouch-jump into the middle structure. Once inside the middle area, shoot out a window above, and crouch-jump two more times out on to the top level of this area. Once one the top floor area, you will find a floating holo-drone (looks like a plasma grenade) in one of the holes in the wall. There is no pillar near this hole, so you will have to use a well times plasma grenade jump to boost yourself up. Once inside this room, the achievement will unlock!

    RiahiTo make the jump in the room you just need to hold crouch before, while and after you jumped, basically walk forward while holding crouch the whole time and while jumping

    Who FLuNg MuNgVery easy to get to; however, I originally did it on easy. The oracle was not there. Loaded map again and still wasn't there. Loaded on legendary and it was there. Some say they did it on easy but 11/11/2020 I had to do it on Legendary. Literally no encounters though so it's not a big deal.

    Mission: The Oracle

    Turn on the Sputnik Skull to make this grenade jump

    This Achievement is right at the start of the mission. Walk into the first big room and go right. Jump on the pillar and get in the opening above you with a grenade jump. The Holo-Drone is sitting there and the achievement will pop.

    xShoot4WarAmpsx+1 Great guide. Not sure why anyone would downvote this.

    Tips for anyone trying to do this and having trouble. Make sure to put the Grenade and stand exactly where he is on the pillar. I was throwing the plasma on top of the upper platform and I was not making the jump. It wasnt high enough or I hit the bottom.

    You must throw it against the side of the upper part od the pillar and Jump forward from the lower part of the pillar to make the jump. Got it my first attempt once I took note of the exact positions on the pillar.

    10 Minutes Too Early Egg: At the very beginning of The Oracle you can obtain the 10 Minutes Too Early achievement. Pass through the first two doors you come to at the start and enter the large room with the square platform in the middle with glass tubes leading to it. Don't drop down with your allies where you meet the holo-drone for the first time. Instead, head to the far side of the upper walkway to the right. Jump on the nearest of the four pillars in front of you, then to the one on the left (closest to the glass tube). Shoot out the glass tube nearest you so it doesn't get in your way, then crouch-jump onto the upper level of the square middle platform. Head to the left side of it from where you land and do a 180, so you're facing back toward the side of the room where the holo-drone appears below. Crouch-jump again up onto the ledge above and to your right. The corner in front and to the right of you is where the holo-drone resides, awaiting its cue to float down to the floor below for the scripted scene. You'll have to grenade-jump up into the vent in the corner where it's sitting (it will be in the right-hand one of the two vents in this corner). Check the video below for a visual walkthrough of this one.

    Demon Slayer050This method is so much easier than doing the sputnik jump method. Got it on 1st attempt.
