    Episode 5 Chapter 4 - Another easy one. Just load up The Cauldron on Heroic, either solo or 2-player co-op (so you still have Mantis vehicles instead of hogs), and blast everything in sight at the generators. You can hop out of your Mantis at the choke points to slow enemies down, but it really isn't necessary. I know this isn't a detailed walkthrough but it's really not necessary. However, I did put up a quick video this morning for it. Cheers!

    Honz BrixIt's because people on here don't want to do any work for themselves. They expect every solution to make the achievement pop without them doing any work for themselves. It's like they want you to have a link on your solution that when they click on it, it automatically pops the achievement without them doing anything. It's because of idiots that I have stopped posting solutions for achievements because I am getting sick of getting down votes for no reason whatsoever. It's why we are getting less and less solutions on TA. People forget that when people post solutions, it is to help everyone else. If it doesn't help you fine, don't vote on the solution.

    liner bronsonI'm grateful to this guide for simply pointing out how easy this is. For some reason, I was expecting something far more challenging.

    Fury87I agree with the person above, I didn't expect this to be as easy as it was! Also, good tip on parking the mantises at the choke points to slow the enemies down. Got this on my first attempt.

    Crims0nScorpionI remember on Xbox 360 I did this with someone else so I guess I'll do it again with someone else on Xbox One but I honestly didn't know there were Mantis XD

    Scooba5teve87Anyone else having trouble getting this to pop? Since the Season 7 update my progress on Spartan Ops isn't being recorded and I'm also not getting the achievements. I have finished Ep5Ch4: Cauldron Base 7 or 8 times now on multiple days all on legendary keeping both generators in tact to the end. I finish, mission ends, menu comes up and nothing. No achievement and under "Difficulty completed" it's empty. I've submitted a ticket but understandably an expansion nobody plays any more is hardly a priority for them right now (which is totally justified).

    IVIr IVIeNsA@Scooba5steve87... same, no progress tracking for Spartan Ops, but the achievement trackers are working - I've popped both the chapter 4 & chapter 5 achievements since mine broke. Also unlocked 'No easy way out' achievement. It didn't pop as expected though, it popped when I reloaded the level to try again after I though it had bugged out. I only have Halo 4 LASO left to do for the LASO Master achievement and I'm a bit worried something is going to screw me over. Hopefully it gets fixed soon.

    BlackShadow78Much easier Cheevo than I expected. Just stay in between objectives and blast everything in site, for the most part they only come from one side at once unless you're too slow which I was a couple times

    RiverSquash99So I've done this maybe 3-4 times. Atleast once on legendary and the rest heroic but still no achievement. It's been approx a week since I first did it so I doubt it's a delayed pop but I'll be happy to be proven wrong.
