    FrendinThe jump worked a-okay for me. Focus on going straight up first to reach the upper hallway instead of trying to head up AND to the door at the same time. My apologies if that doesn't make sense 100%

    GeomancyFor whatever reason, I also had trouble with the jet-pack shortcut today (i.e. the jet-pack jump at 6:48 from the “cross-bracing” to the next battle site). For those having similar difficulties, there’s a relatively simple workaround: Instead of jet-packing from the lowest rung of the "cross-bracing" straightaway to the next battle site (as in the video), first jet-pack straight up from the lowest rung of the cross-bracing up to the second and (if necessary) the third rung of the cross-bracing, and only then jet-pack across to the next battle site. It will take an additional 20-30 seconds of your time, but if you’re unable (for whatever reason) to do the jet-pack jump in the video, it’s still much quicker than fighting your way up across staircases and skywalks.

    SuperDuckyThe big jump absolutely does not work on PC anymore. Not even close. Geomancy's solution is the most correct. After 2 deaths trying it silver's way, did it in 17:30.

    Accidentally stumbled on a much easier and quicker solution for all the par time achievements. I don't know if this method is bugged, requires you to complete each level on Legendary or something else, but this is what I did and the par time achievements have popped.

    From the menu go into the Reach campaign, select your mission and choose rally point Charlie where you can. I put the difficulty on easy, and after simply completing the third segment of the level in as short a time as possible the achievement popped during the end level cut scene.

    This worked for all levels where you can choose the rally point. Saves you running through the whole level.

    SmokeNashtyDone a couple on legendary from last rally point. And so far the times are saving to the leaderboards.
    Will update if this method can unlock the Pedrogas achievement
