    VauIt Boy 111Tried this 9 February 2020. Followed the guide. Done it 3 times Nothing happened for the Zanzibar map even thou the sign changed I gave up and went on to do the 2 Valhalla sigils On halo 3 after doing both of them I got nothing and was met with a laggy map I left the game open and went to the dashboard for a few seconds then went back in about 3 minutes later the achievement for halo 2 Zanzibar unlocked. Seems all the date changes are confusing and lagging the system which it’s trying to make sense on and correct resulting in delayed achievements. But looking for the positive that one worked. Waiting to see now if the halo 3 sigils achievement on Valhalla will unlock....

    Nothing happened. Tried a second time still nothing think I’ll leave it there for now and try again another time

    (Please note... hard reset 5-10 seconds option has been replaced by the restart button which appears when holding down the Xbox button for a couple of seconds)

    xzDEATHWALKERzxI have an awesome trick for getting this achievement that will save you all an incredible amount of time and effort.

    You will likely need a PC, tablet, or a smartphone to make this process more efficient. For me to unlock this achievement I used an android based Samsung S8, but any phone should work even an iPhone.

    Once you have your preferred device in hand you are going to need to locate a particular app. I can't be sure what the name will be on your specific device, but it will function similarly regardless.

    What you are looking for is some sort of time keeping and/or informational app. On my device it is simply called "Clock." Yours might be called this, or "Time", or "Calendar", etc. Once you have located this app you need to identify the function for setting an alarm or a reminder.

    Some sort of mechanism to alert you on the proper date you will need to launch the game, check Trueachievements for details, and then proceed to pop the cheevo.

    I just did this while drinking my morning coffee easy peasy. No console reboots, no game lag, no hung up achievement delays, it just works. It just simply works. I can't believe I didn't do this for all of the date based Halo MCC achievements. Oh wait I did. It was just as easy every time. Weird...
