    This achievement is very easy to get in conjunction with the Wraith Killer achievement. Make sure to attempt this on the Uplift Reserve Flashback as Dutch. NOTE: Do NOT shoot or grenade ANYTHING. This will reset your achievement progress for Classic and that's not a fun thing. At the start of the level you can either assist the overturned Warthog or continue to the right along the outer wall. I recommend the latter as on legendary the grunts are fond of grenades and are able to stick you while you right the Warthog almost every time. As you make your way along the right side of the level, commandeer a healthy Warthog and boot out the driver. NOTE: Do NOT honk the horn. Aparantly Bungie regards the horn on the Warthog a deadly weapon. Honking it will count as a shot fired, so avoid at all costs. After removing the driver, make sure to swap your Spartan laser for whatever weapon the former driver has. Upon entering the passenger seat, the former driver will now be an unstoppable, infinite-ammoing, Spartan-lasering machine. All you need to do at this point is stay well back from the fight and let him/her work their magic. All Wraith kills made by your gunnery team aboard your Warthog will count toward your progress. The next few sections can get a bit tricky but the thing to remember is to stay well back and let your passengers do the work. If you lose a passenger, either restart at the last checkpoint or pick up a new soldier. Remember to pick up the laser if your passenger dies. Also along the way you will run into opportunities to swap Warthogs. If your team won't switch 'hogs, just take your Laser and give it to your new best front-seat buddy. If you run into Banshees, just move around. Make yourself a hard target to hit. The very last section takes some patience to pull off as you need to take out as many baddies at range as you can and move in on the last tank when the coast is mostly clear. You will know you are at the final section when you hit some switchbacks on the side of a hill that lead up to a covenant encampment. The encampment will have grunts hiding behind barriers waiting to stick blue fuzzy spiders to your head so be ready for that. After you take out the last tank you should get a pop-up for your Wraith Killer and after the small video interlude you should get Classic. Cheers and I hope it helps. The above is EXACTLY how I got both these achievements. If it doesn't work then try again. You may have accidentally hit the horn.

    octorok74Thanks so much for this. Just got the achievement a minute ago. Never attempted it til now and without the tip on the horn I would have been so confused. Really good right guide for this achievement so thanks for that.

    Simply complete Uplift reserve by running around in a warthog and first chance you get, jump into a ghost (theres one parked on a rock by the first tunnel) and zoom past everything . when you hit the beach where theres a shallow cliff with three shade turrets facing down, boost over the rock formation to the right, and just keep going. when you hit the cliff with two shade turrets on it, ram into them both and replenish lost health at the next station around the corner. from here, zoom past everything, and when you cross the hole at the end, you will get the achievement when you become the Rookie again. pieca' cake.

    Unlikely PotatoMy first attempt was to do the whole level in a Warthog, but this method failed numerous times, as the warthog was slow and cumbersome. I tried the solution posted by 'IAngelmaker I' above and switched to a ghost as soon as i came accross one, and it worked a treat!

    The ghost is slightly faster and easier to control, and the boost allows you to miss the majority of the enemy fire being concentrated at you and make a quick get away.

    Scythecami can confirm without a doubt you can use a ghost, and use the boost

    JCKellnerits nice that all you have to do with the ghost is make it to each check point, find some health and start again. it seems that there are multiple ghosts along the way at checkpoints for you to get a new one
