    Mission: Osiris, Heroic difficulty, can be done solo

    Near the end of the level you will see a group of Covenant troops fighting Prometheans. You need to help Elite General (golden armor) reach the entrance at the top of the hill. Pick up the best weapons before you leave cave (Light Rifle), stay on the right side of the map so you can see the entire battle field, don't get too close to him (he will start shooting at you) and don't let him die. You can send your Spartans forward so they will focus on the Promethean soldiers. If Elite dies, reload checkpoint asap.

    You can make a copy of your checkpoint using one of three available slots in menu so you don't have to restart entire level if you screw up.

    Burburnator88Worked perfectly after a couple of attempts. The turret guys have to be cleared out first and after that you won't have a problem getting up the hill. Thanks for the help.

    Mission 1 - Osiris
    Difficulty: Heroic (Co-op Recommended)

    Near the end of the level you'll enter a large uphill battle area where covenant and promethean are fighting. At the bottom of the hill you'll notice a gold armoured Elite and you'll need to make sure he stays alive so that he can reach the top of the hill once all the promethean are killed. You'll want to make sure you are prepared by picking up the Light Rifle and Suppressor or Carbine in the previous areas. From the start of this battle you'll want to run up the right hand side killing prometheans while scanning the battlefield for potential threats that might come in contact with the Elite. The Elite likes to rush forward, so feel free to have someone in your co-op group keep him busy by getting his attention and dodging his bullets. If you're doing this solo, tell your team to run as far up the hill as possible. If they stay behind they will shoot and kill the Elite. Near the top flank from the right and kill the turrets. Once at the top of the hill the Elite will join your team, but the achievement will not unlock until all other enemies are alive! Reload the checkpoint if he dies or there is any other problems.

    branstoneboyI just want to add to this guide as I was stuck for ages. Somewhere along the battle my golden Elite was killed and a new blue Elite joined the battle but I didn't know this. I was reloading my checkpoint for nearly an hour wondering why I wasn't getting the achievement even though the Elite survived until the end and the blue Elite was trying to kill me. So if it doesn't work for you, check you've got the right ally.
