    This is a complement for the great solution from LifeExpectancy and what to do if the achievement doesn't unlock even if you did everything right.

    *** Spoiler - click to reveal ***

    *** Spoiler - click to reveal ***


    1) Pause the game and choose "Save/Quit". Keep pressing cn_B until the main menu of Halo: TMCC appears and finally close the game from the dashboard:
    Press cn_guide, select the game, press cn_start and choose "QUIT". You'll return to main screen of console dashboard.

    2) With game totally closed, delete your local save (just the local save, NEVER CHOOSE "Delete everywhere"):
    Select the game, press cn_start and select the option "Manage game & add-ons". Go to "Saved data", on the right side, choose your save (it will have your gamerpicture and gamertag). With your save selected, press cn_A and choose the option "Delete from console", just the local save will be deleted.

    3) Go back to main screen of console dashboard pressing cn_B. From here, you must became offline:
    Press cn_guide, go to "Settings" » "General" » "Network settings" and choose "Go offline".

    4) Play offline again until you complete the achievement requirements exactly as it was explained above in "THE ACHIEVEMENT:".

    5) After the cutscene, you land on the corvette’s deck and you regain the control, pause the game, choose "Save/Quit", go to Halo: TMCC main menu and quit the game from the dashboard.

    6) Repeat the step "2)", deleting your local save again.

    7) Now, repeat the step "3)", but this time you must select "Go online".

    If you done everything right, the achievement must unlock when you are online, still on the dashboard. If this doesn't happen, just start the game normally, wait until the game loads the main menu. Press cn_start on main menu and wait a couple minutes. During the wait process, you can play any mission solo or any kind of multiplayer game, just keep the game running while you wait.

    My friend rafa1000house helped me with this solution of deleting the local save. I did everything this way and I unlocked the achievement on my first try. Good luck!

    Ducking MadI'm using gamepass/no disc for this so it doesn't work. I should've had this achievement 10 times now and it won't unlock

    netstrykerHi there, Ducking Mad. How are you? I hope that fine.

    The part of solution that requires to play offline works with many games, digital or in disc. Also works with many Xbox Game Pass and Games With Gold games.

    I had this same issue in other games and used this solution that worked perfectly. My Halo: The Master Chief Collection is owned digital copy.

    Mentioning more two games. Assassin's Creed Unity (Games With Gold) and Contrast (Xbox Game Pass). I gave you three examples with three different ownerships.

    It is crucial that the console where you are trying, be the main console from the account that have the ownership of the game or the Xbox Game Pass, Xbox Game Pass Ultimate, Games With Gold or owned digital/disc copy of the game. Only this way you can play the games offline. Anyway is important remember, some games since Xbox One can't be played offline. This is not applied to Halo: TMCC.

    I have many friends that used this soltution for many games and all them unlocked the achievements.

    Hope this helps.

    Just in case anybody doesn't know, (which is TOTALLY understandable since it doesn't tell you lmao) this has to be done on HEROIC OR HIGHER.

    There's not really much to say for this except, as soon as you regain control of the Sabre after the cutscene, line yourself up with the engines and shoot at them all until they're destroyed.

    For the escort part, just try and stay away from the Super Carrier because their turrets will tear you apart. Stay on the outside of the play area and try and take the Seraphs out first because that will make mopping up the Banshees a lot easier.

    CrocsxI just did this in Legendary, to be honest HOPEFULLY this part is easier than the rest of the mission in Sabre...

    What I did is really just rush for the engines, then after you blow the engines, turn left, you will have a bunch (around 7) of banshee spawning. you can quickly kill all 7 then just hide close to your Frigate and let her do most of the job while you take out lone wolf Banshee and Seraph.

    I died multiple times, but the achievement still pop, so it does reset to the checkpoint timer when you die
