    Finding one of the clues in Mombasa Streets counts as completing a level, so if you just play from the beginning of the game (preferably on Easy) and until you find the first clue (the helmet), you will get this with almost no fighting, making it easy to avoid using anything else than your pistol. Just make sure to not throw a plasma or spike grenade either, as they count as Covenant weapons.

    Finding the helmet also nets you the first story-related achievement:

    ZENMASTR6555If whatever reason this doesn't unlock during a playlist runthrough of the game from firsthand experience, try attempting to do it through the campaign sub menu instead and this should prompt it to unlock properly.

    Vandel BusterYes. The helmet is story related. It's the first story related achievement.

    This achievement is easiest to complete on Uplift Reserve. Most of the level is spent in a vehicle, which eliminates any changes of you using ammo and accidentally picking up a covenant weapon. This level is easy to speedrun, which combines well with your attempt to unlock Deference for Darkness for not activating your VISR and Classic for not firing a single shot or throwing a single grenade the entire mission.

    I did this on Uplift Reserve and I also got the Classic (Don't fire a shot or throw a grenade on Legendary Solo and One Way Ride (Don't pick up a health pack on Heroic or higher)

    Basically you want to get in the overturned Warthog then drive it done the narrowish path past the 2 Wraiths, Ghost and Chopper then get in the Ghost that's on the rock and boost your way through the level, should only take you a few minutes.

    ZH PRISONERI just did the same thing as lightchipster. That was pretty sweet to get all of those achievements at the same time!
