    Mission: Uplift Reserve
    Difficulty: Legendary

    This requires you to not use any weapons at all which includes any held weapons, the ghost's blue bullets and the warthog's horn. It is ok to use the ghost's boost or warthog's powerslide!

    As you spawn, head up the narrow walkway towards the flipped warthog! Get inside, watch out for the choppers, and head for the entrance to the next area. Dodge the 2 wraiths and other enemies along the way. After getting past the 2nd wraith, you'll want to switch into the ghost that is sitting on a rock before the tunnel entrance. Feel free to also pick up the health kit if necessary.

    Now you'll just be using the ghost to boost by enemies and avoid as much fire as possible. Just boost your way through the entire level and keep your eye on choppers as they will cause you the most damage. When finding a new ghost, feel free to switch to it, and always pick up health kits if you aren't at 100% health before entering a new area.

    It is totally ok if you die for this achievement, and restart at your previous checkpoint. You can take your time learning enemy patterns if you need to.

    If you follow this exact method, you can also unlock the following achievements at the same time:

    This achievement is best done on the level 'Uplift Reserve', the mission after locating the second clue. The requirements for this require no firing a weapon or throwing grenades. Oddly, this includes the use of the horn on the warthog, so just don't touch the right trigger at all (the boost in the Ghost is still okay though.)

    When you leave the beach and head inland, you'll see a flipped Warthog with some marines guarding it. Ignore that 'Hog, instead going right and commandeering one of the vehicles to the right that already has a marine in the gunner. This marine can still kill, so he'll be doing most of the work for you while you run. From there, just continue to work your way through the level, stopping to recover your stamina(shields) in moments of calm. You will also have a couple opportunities to swap out for inactive ghosts along the path, which is recommended if your warthog is low on health or your racing against the timer as well as another Warthog shortly after the second ghost.

    If done right, hitting the ramp at the end of the map will pop the Classic achievement as well as Xenophobia for not using any Covenant weapons, One Way Ride if you don't pick up any health packs along the way, Just Say... I ain't Dead if you did it without any reverts, & Deference of Darkness for not activating your VISR, and Floor It! for achievement Par Time.

    Prince Rolfit might be worth mentioning that there is a soldier with a spartan laser about halfway through the level. the same area that is a firefight map in odst on the 360. there are 2 soldiers behind a rock one of them caries a laser which is really handy to kill the wraiths

    More òf a tip than a solution, if you decide to keep the warthog instead of switching to the ghost trade you Spartan laser to a marine and have him sit in the passengers seat, the heavy weapon takes out brute choppers and ghosts easier than a assault rifle

    This achievement sounds a lot harder than it is. The mission Uplift Reserve is quite easy to run through on Legendary, using vehicles to simply bypass all of the enemies. From the start, get a Warthog and make sure you have a Marine in the gunner and passenger seats. This will deflect some of the incoming damage. If you can keep the hog with the Marines through the bulk of the mission you should be home-free, but if necessary you can ditch it for a ghost part way through like I do in the video.

    I've included a video below with loads of achievements. For a run-through of Uplift Reserve on Legendary without firing any weapons or throwing grenades, start at 00:07.

    Simply load up the mission 'Uplift Reserve' on Legendary difficulty and you must complete the level without shooting or grenade thrown. Try following the route I take in the video.

    I created a video to help:

    Hope this helps.
