    EDIT: December 9, 2021: It has come to my attention that MCC no longer allows players to select prologue/epilogue missions from the mission select screen while in co-op, therefore I am updating the guide to have valid information.

    However, I have found out that you can still access the prologue missions and get the achievements in co-op by using the full campaign playlist.

    So, the fastest way to get this achievement now is to put in a second controller or invite a friend to your lobby, go to Campaigns, select Halo 3, then Playlists, and scroll down to select the “Legendary Campaign” playlist. After starting the playlist, either watch or skip the opening cutscene and after it is over, the next mission will load and you will unlock the achievement.

    This will also unlock two other co-op specific achievements, "Standard Operating Brocedure" and "Brovershield," if you haven’t unlocked them already.

    S P 4 C E YI've done this a whole bunch of times, both in local and online coop. It clearly has issues.

    I'll wait for it to magically unlock at a later date. Seriously MS??!

    EFFEKT 45I got this and the other 2 by playing only single player, and haven't at any point played with anyone else, it unlocked on Halo 4: Forerunner, kind of like DJ Drty Chapstk.

    Bergan SWEExactly the same happened to me as for effekt 45 above. Never played coop. Really, really glitchy achievements on this game. Didn't get anything for completing Requiem on Legendary for example.

    To obtain this achievement you must finish any mission with a Co-op partner on Legendary.

    I recommend doing the first mission Pillar of Autumn, the key to finishing this one is using Plasma pistol and magnum combo, hit the Elites shield and headshot them with the magnum.

    Also make use of ur grenades which are great for taking out groups and instantly killing elites by sticking them or landing next to them (plasma grenade not Frag).

    Finishing a mission on legendary with a Co-op partner will also unlock the following:

    Halo: The Master Chief CollectionStandard Operating BrocedureThe Standard Operating Brocedure achievement in Halo: The Master Chief Collection worth 13 pointsComplete any co-op level on Normal difficulty.


    Halo: The Master Chief CollectionBrovershieldThe Brovershield achievement in Halo: The Master Chief Collection worth 15 pointsComplete any co-op level on Heroic difficulty.

    viktor181Quicker way to get it is to do arrival on halo 3 as it's just a cutscene :)

    It seems that the Prologues have been removed from Halo MCC so they can not be used for this achievement any more. If you have beaten Halo Reach, this is very easy to unlock by going to the last level, Lone Wolf. Load the level in co-op and immediately die. The end cut scene will play and then you will receive the Bro Hammer achievement.

    Obi TW0Thanks for this! I went to do these achievements for 12 Days of Christmas and found the prologue/epilogue removed.

    Nice easy way to still get this locally with 2 controllers.
