Finished the Great Journey last night in 12:16. I'm now at 3:00:53. I can't decide whether it would be easier to run Cairo again or try to do a speed run of Uprising with the Sputnik skull on where you can do it in a minute. I've seen the videos that do it but I haven't really seen a guide on *how* to do it.

Hey was wondering if anyone would be able to help me out with the bridge descent glitch and keyes bump in CE?

Finally got the achievement. I ended up doing Uprising with Sputnik, Feather, Boom, Catch, and Pinata (from TGamesMaster 0:55 speed run) and got a time of 2:07. Thanks for all the suggestions!

Nicely done Loki

Do note that the bridge descent 2nd jump can be done co-op. If you are not able to stop your sliding then you can spawn a teammate there (must be dead prior your attempt of the 2nd jump).
Gotta be quick because the Banshee can block the spawn. If you don't want a super fast time you can of course kill the banshee from the 1st jump landing

Can you do the triple grenade jump in Truth and Reconciliation?

Then I'm willing to trade :) I can give you Assault on the Control Room in 7:00-9:00 and Keyes in about 5:00
This is because I'll give it several attempts before restarting the level

What Keyes bump are you trying to pull off? There are 2 bumps, the well known shield bump and the lesser-known flood bump. I prefer the flood bump over the shield bump since it is imo less frustrating (for some reason I had a very hard time getting the shield bump) and faster. Search youtube for a guide for the flood bump if you aren't familiar with this method, maybe you prefer this method as well ;)

I got the par time and par score on regret legendary. But did not get the achievement. I did use the save/quit technique. Does that make the achievements glitchy using that technique? I've used it for other maps but got the achievements. Please help!!

Can't use save and quit in 'the last room' / area / load zone, not just the last checkpoint.

Me and my partner found an alternate trick that is way more noob proof in Silent Cartographer. It also skip spawns of the Hunters and prevents the hunters at the pelican from spawning.

It basically looks like this:
Segendary Ty playing Halo: The Master Chief Collection

So no need for grenades and you can respawn instead of reloading checkpoint.

Note that you can reach the fall limit before hitting the overshield so make sure to lower your body as much as possible by A) Crouching (immediatly uncrouch, or use the Hold to crouch setting) B) Staying between the warthog and the ledge, rather than on the ledge

It probably has already been discovered, I didn't do my research. I just stumbled upon this while using the trick that is done solo with a grenade from the passenger's side

Tide44, I also see the Arbiter is rather slow. I got 6:35 on that. Using save and quit 100 times (yeah frustrating and luck based) can help you run past everything in the tunnels after the Hangar.

But let's do some tomorrow. I still need Metropolis and Great Journey so hopefully we can shave some time off of there. I can't do ALL the tricks but I am confident we can bring the GJ to 12 minutes or so

Tide44: I would recommend the following:

Metropolis: turn on sputnik. Once you get to that checkpoint, you can save / quit if you need to and its easier to do that jump with sputnik

Sacred Icon: you can probably improve that time and its not a hard level

The Great Journey: sub 15 should be possible here

Gravemind is fine with your Regret run so if you can reduce those three times, you should be good.

Okay I just went on Metropolis and got a time of 16:20. I used save and quit but gotten 2 other checkpoints after that. The last checkpoint I used save and quit on was on the stairs after the scarab climbs the building. Does that count as the last room and therefore negates the scoring and time?

I have no clue how to kill those guys on the scarab super fast without dying. I don't want to have a huge time loss, please help

and Yes I am standing on the eye and shooting through the wall, but as soon as the scarab turns I fall off...

The problem I have with using sputnik is the physics change so my warthog driving is terrible going through the tunnel at the start, I can't seem to get a good run and I know it is a patience thing but...I'm over H2 lol

Segendary Ty - I'll send you a message and hopefully we can get some good times :)

I managed to get 18:06 with a co-op partner today. This seems to be one of the easier levels so I'm not content with that. I noticed that if we bring the marine with the rocket launcher and put him in the back of the warthog so he doesn't shoot rockets on the bridge, he's quite valuable with his bottomless clip and fighting everyone in the tunnel.

You can also use the gauss warthog versus those wraiths and ghosts in front of the bunker. However to get the gauss safely I would use the regular warthog to get past them, then the area will despawn and you can hop out and snipe the jackal snipers. While the other player catches up with the Gauss.

Problem was getting the regular warthog past that area without getting sniped and such. I'll try it again in a bit so we can run it together later.
