There are plenty of Wraiths within this level which means if you really want this achievement, it's not to hard to get. In particular there are two main areas which you will be able to achieve this. That is the area in which you must board the Covenant Ship, and right at the end of the level.

Your first step is getting a Wraith. To capture a Wraith, you have to kill the gunner and take their place, which will make the driver exit the vehicle for you to take.

Be warned though capturing a Wraith isn't too easy, especially if you decided to do this on Legendary for some reason. The turret is deadly and the cannon is accurate. Your best bet is to either use a sniper from range or to stun the vehicle with a Plasma Pistol for a better shot. Make sure the area is clear before attempting to get in the gunner seat so your work doesn't go to waste.

Once in your Wraith you have to try and keep it alive and take down some more Wraiths. Near the Covenant Ship should drop around five/six Wraiths after the initial one in the area. You can use the elevated area on the right to your advantage to capture the Wraith (the driver often seems to leave the Wraith when the gunner is killed for this one) and can then use the Elephant as cover from opposing Wraith fire (just watch out and make sure you take care of the Ghosts).

The last area also has a large collection of Wraiths, which you may have to take care of at the same time. Once you claim the first though the rest can easily be taken out by keeping a good distance to avoid the gunner and strafing around. (PRISTINE comments the first Wraith in this area doesn't have a gunner which could make this Wraith easier to get).

If you want to take one Wraith through the level, you'll have to force the Wraith into the Elephant for the river portions. Driving through a river will destroy vehicles, try to do this achievement in the areas highlighted instead.

Note this achievement is player specific so if you do this in co-op, only the individual who has got the kills will get the achievement. Make sure you take it in turns folks.


Some players are struggling to board the Wraith without stunning it from a plasma pistol EMP. From my experience you can board a Wraith when it's not stunned but for those struggling, or for those who want to be on the safe side, make sure you have a plasma pistol. Even if it's not necessary, it'll make this a lot easier (Wraiths have a habit of splattering).

Basically, EMP the Wraith to board it.
