    Difficulty must be on Normal or above for all Reach Achievements.

    This Achievement is extremely easy to obtain. During the second mission titled "Winter Contingency" there will only be one drivable vehicle that you can get into. The game indicates it with a waypoint, but ignore it if you want to get the achievement.

    Ambo100The first sentance is EXTREMELY important. I did this on easy difficulty and wasted my time.

    On Winter Contingency there are a few vehicles you can ride in. There are various trucks and forklifts scattered throughout the level. Simply avoid all of these vehicles and run through the level.

    Near the end of the level you will hear a distress signal and go defend a group of marines from a Covenant dropship. After you finish that fight a Falcon will land and take you somewhere else. If you have done it correctly then the achievement will pop as soon as the cutscene starts after you enter the Falcon.

    Note that there is a forklift in the next area that is drivable and whether or not you drive it does NOT affect this achievement.

    Epsilon ThetaNope that wasn't it! You can end the mission in two different places depending on where you go first. Ending it at the river I never got the achievement. Rescuing the troopers at the hillside got me the achievement.
