Currently the Hardest achievement in the game because all LASO's are currently bugged and making them too easy.

EDIT: According to Rey27 : Save/Quit method is patched. You can only save/quit once per level now. (sorry everyone who still needs this...)

To clarify something that some people don't understand is that this can be mixed times for Co-op and Solo! The trick is if you do any missions in Co-op you must also do it in Solo, meaning to get this achievement you must FINISH every mission Solo. If your best time is in Co-op and you don't need to attempt a better time in Solo then put the scarab skull on and finish the mission.

The Heretic and Armory must be completed on legendary to unlock the achievement (no enemies). Thanks for reminding me Twobby!

All credit for videos goes to Nak3d Eli, if it weren't for him I wouldn't have this achievement!

How to check your times:

Halo Waypoint has your Co-op and Solo Times:


When you are on your profile (make sure to sign up or login) click the blue box that says "View Service record" that will drop down and you click "Halo The Master Chief Collection". Your times will be under "Campaign Completion Per Game" Just make sure to use the boxes to change campaign and Solo or Co-op.

You can also check the leaderboards on Halo TMCC for Par times, if they don't load then the time didn't count (they take a little while to load so give it a sec at first).

To tell your overall time you can go to this site and input your times, it will add up to your overall time in TMCC:

http://www.unitarium.com/time-calculator (This is what I used to calculate my times)


Note: You won't get in trouble for doing this method from 343 but its possible they will patch this or a patch could make it not work. On the same note, its possible a patch could make the save/quit method work better or always work.

To do the Save/quit method you pause your game in a mission and Save/Quit. Then once your back on the menu RESUME the mission and it will go back to the beginning of the checkpoint without any deaths, and resetting the time when you first hit the checkpoint.

The Save/quit method will work as long as you don't quit out on the last checkpoint. If you do it wrong it will set the mission time at 1 hour and 40 minutes.

Also Note: You cannot do the save/quit method in Co-op, I do not know if it works split screen.

Having problems? A possible solution (Thanks to Hurricane Matt) heres what he said:

I figured it out, and it is something that might be useful to your guide. It turns out that the any checkpoint in the final area of a level counts as a "final checkpoint". Since I was saving and quitting during the flood battle at the end of Sacred Icon, I was voiding the achievement since once you reach that area you never leave for the rest of the mission, but continue to get checkpoints.

I ended up just saving and quitting throughout the level up until the final area and then played that normally and the time stuck on the leaderboards.


1)Do 1 mission a day if you are getting too stressed out on 1 mission because if you become too stressed you will play worse, sometimes a break can make you play much better with a clear mind.

2) I recommend Solo over Co-op for the fact that if your partner dies, you die too, most people do Co-op i'm sure but using these videos will be less effective or impossible on Co-op.

3) Do all missions before trying to make amazing times on each one, if you have an estimation on how much time you need to decrease you can set goals to decrease your times. Every time I finished a mission I would use notepad to make a list of all my current times and how much I can decrease it, make an overall time and a time that shows how low you can go. Then when you are finished and you need about say 5:66 less, choose your missions with the biggest estimation that you can drop (my biggest times were 10 minutes I could improve it by)

4) You can always try different things, if the method on the videos aren't working for you, then try your own that is possible. You don't have to do as good as every speed run in the video, all the times together are way below 3 hours. You can save yourself some time doing it regularly than exactly what is done in the video.

5) Check other speed run videos out. Some are different methods than others, these videos are basically the newest current methods put together but it can be surprising when you find something else new slightly easier and either saving you time, not losing time, or sacrificing little time.

6) When watching the videos make sure to watch a good bit of it before attempting it, sometimes you will miss something or Eli will say it a bit later.

7) I put difficulty on each mission on the ones that were definitely the most struggling, if any jumps are done in the mission or tricks, practice should be done before hand. There are a multitude of ways to practice, its up to you.

8) Never give up

9) Believe
