    Overview
    This achievement can be unlocked in the Halo 3 mission Tsavo Highway by driving four vehicles beyond a certain area ('the gap'). Contrary to its description, it can be unlocked on Easy difficulty with no skulls active. Playing in co-op should make this achievement quicker and easier, but it can be done solo.

    Guide
    – Progress until you encounter a line of concrete barriers on a bridge
    – Bring four vehicles to this location
    – Five Warthogs are available en route to the gap, including two in the mission's starting area
    – Multiple Choppers are also available (though there are some reports of them seemingly not counting)
    – There is an opening in the line of barriers through which you can proceed on foot
    – Forcibly drive each vehicle through this opening and fall under the bridge
    – Damaging the barriers and ramming one vehicle into another can make this easier
    – Drive each vehicle forward to the wall at the end of the area under the bridge
    – The achievement should unlock once each vehicle is at the wall

    Alternative Strategy – Clearing the Gap
    – Acquire a gravity lift from one of the huts in the area with the energy barrier that must be disabled
    – Line up the vehicles behind one another just before the gap
    – Deploy the gravity lift in front of the line of vehicles
    – Drive each vehicle forward and over the gravity lift so that it's launched over the gap
    – Knocking over a barrier and lining it up as a ramp is another approach for clearing the gap
    – The achievement should unlock once each vehicle is past a certain point, be it on or under the bridge

    Desertheat2006Choppers do not work towards this achievement. Had 2 choppers and 2 warthogs down there with no luck. Went for two more warthogs and it popped as soon as the 4th went into the area. Did this on easy with no skulls. WARTHOGS ONLY

    ThurminatorVIIChoppers do seem to count, but are buggy. I did this solo on PC on easy with agoraphobia. I had 2 choppers and 2 warthogs (1 normal, 1 scout). Didn't pop, so I went back for another warthog and it popped as soon as I pulled up. Ended up with 3 warthogs and 2 choppers at the location.

    Mission: Tsavo Highway - Mind the Gap - This achievement requires you to get 4 vehicles, ANY 4 vehicles, across the afore-mentioned gap in the bridge.... on Legendary.... with Cowbell, Catch, Thunderstorm, Mythic, and Tough Luck skulls active. It can be done solo or in co-op, but obviously co-op will make it much easier as you have friends to drive the vehicles through the level with you and you don't have to restart the last checkpoint if you die. In the absence of friends, you could use a second controller as a spawn point to save some hassle. There are at least 4 Warthogs, one troop transport, and several Brute Choppers in the first portion of the level before the gap in the bridge. I prefer to bring 3 hogs and the troop transport as it's easier to get these through the concrete block gap than to get choppers through it. The video below shows this achievement in action, starting at the beginning of the bridge.

    DeadpoolCan confirm that this works on easy, no skulls on steam version. Used 4 warthogs and just drove them to the wall under the bridge leading to the next section.

    The best way to get any vehicle across that second gap is when u come the area with two choppers, the barrier, and the fuel-rod chiefton. In one of the buildings, on the floor is a deployable gravlift, grab it, go the gap place it between the two concrete barriers then just drive into it. I use this trick it has never failed be sure to have to have the right skulls on. Using this trick you can get any vehicle of your choice over the gap with some serious air.

    lriboldiJust tried it on PC on Easy, no skulls on and it didn't work. Did it again on Legendary with the proper skulls on, and it worked.
    Edit: On the Steam version btw

    Novaan VerdianoI just did this on Steam, easy, only cowbell on cause I was too lazy to turn it off. Worked fine for me once I used four warthogs, just had to make sure that they're far enough below the bridge. Simply dropping them between the gap isn't enough. I didn't realise this when I tried it with two Warthogs and two Choppers where it didn't pop, so this might work too.
