    Legend Slayer

    To obtain this achievement you must kill someone else who has this achievement:

    Halo: The Master Chief CollectionLegendary AnniversaryThe Legendary Anniversary achievement in Halo: The Master Chief Collection worth 104 pointsHalo 2: Complete every level of the game on Legendary difficulty.

    Yesterdays patch (12/15/14) fixed this achievement and it can now do it in custom matches with a friend. If you have no friends with the Legendary anniversary achievement they can be found in matchmaking.

    If you have a friend with it willing to help you can get this knocked out of the way, but otherwise don't waste time trying to find someone, work on the other matchmaking required achievements and you could easily get this one by chance.

    If you are really having a hard time getting this achievement and can't seem to kill someone with it just add my XBL account and send me a message and ill work at helping you get it.

    LambsteinPlaying Halo Championships playlist, with a boosting partner (my 4 golds vs his 4 golds) and as we are shooting the ice down on each other for environmental medals, my SECONDARY account gets the chievo as it betrays my PRIMARY account as the ice falls, which has of course beaten Halo 2 on legendary. I still don't have it and I have meleed my boosting partner on the same map, in several games. Seems kind of glitchy to me.

    As Le Lone Wolf stated this achievement is obtainable in customs.

    HOWEVER, I had killed more than 10 people that had the Legendary Anniversary achievement without getting this to unlock for me. Yet somehow everyone who killed ME would get this. EVERY. SINGLE. TIME.

    After much deliberation the only difference we could see was that the people I killed obtained Legendary Anniversary by doing Halo 2 co-op. I had personally done Halo 2 legendary solo. And since everyone who killed me was getting this achievement but I couldnt seem to get it from any of them, I tried killimg someone who had done Halo 2 Legendary solo. Boom, achievement unlocked.

    Note*** This was prior to the Dec 15th patch. That may have fixed it so that killing anyone with Legendary Anniversary will pop it.

    So if you dont get this achievement via pure luck in matchmaking, seek out someome who has done all Halo 2 levels solo legendary and kill them in a Halo 2 Anniversary customs game and you should unlock Legend Slayer. Again, the Dec 15th patch may have made this a moot point.

    If you're desperate add me on XB1 and shoot me a PM and I'll help you out with this.
