    The Voice you're looking to hear is Gunnery Sergeant Edward "Buck", known for his role in Halo 3: ODST. He'll appear randomly during one of the objectives in New Alexandria. Specifically, during the "in-between" missions, separate from the actual 3 Main Objectives of the level. If you don't hear him when playing, try Restarting the Mission, and he should appear at some point.

    ObsinyxHey all, thought I'd comment this here just in case for anyone. This achievement seems to still be a little bugged as of Jan. 10th, 2022. However, it still popped for me about 5 minutes after I finished the Buck side mission while going for the first button to activate the DJ Brute, instead of needing to do the local save way. Not sure if activating the button popped the achievement, but it popped right after I called for an emergency evac to get a new Falcon. Again, not sure if it was just delayed, or if either triggering the button or calling for an emergency evac triggered it, or if I was a one off case (I'm in the US so the achievement is called New Ways to Save a Buck for me) but this might be a way around having to do SemelweisReflex's method.

    Blood DMStruggling with this one.
    I've tried it on xbox and pc with no luck. I've tried the usual method of delete local save which has worked for multiple other achievements but again with no luck.

    I have 100% played the correct side mission on both the main save and with deleting the local save.

    Anyone think of anything else I could try?

    Blood DMI just managed to unlock this after struggling, see previous post.
    For anyone interested I had to play via Cloud Gaming and stopped the game save sync.
    I lucked out with the first side mission being the required one. It popped within a few seconds of Buck starting to speak.

    metallicafan459A shame the audio clip of the side mission is talked over - so it’s not as clear what to listen out for! :(

    My English is certainly insufficient, but I did not really understand the procedure to follow with the two guides to UltimateHero And SilverScorpion. But I found a video for a glitch on YT that is clearer than the other YT video above. Look at the beginning, the process is very clear :

    Go to the helicopter after the 1st mission. If Buck is not mentioned, return immediately to the last checkpoint. I got it on the 3rd try.
