DO NOT BLINDLY ASK FOR CHECKPOINTS WITHOUT FIRST CHECKING THE LIST BELOW AND/OR RECENT POSTS.

You are responsible for searching for the checkpoints on your own, but I am just trying to make your life easier. I have a list of people who have advertised their help at the bottom of this post, and many more periodically offer short-term help in this thread -- please attempt to contact these people and/or look through the most recent page or two posts to see if a checkpoint is floating around before you ask if someone has one.

A Note From the Moderators:
Yazite said:
I would like to remind everyone that offering payment in exchange for achievements and vice versa is strictly against the Xbox terms of use and therefore TA's too. If we see this happening we will have to start handing out site bans and we don't really want to do that! toast
This comes per the Site Rules, which I have been asked to link here.


So many of us are aware with a few legendary threads on this website: Halo MCC 1,2,3,4, and SAGA checkpoint distribution center and Halo MCC ALL LASO + Saga achievement distribution #2 were both centers for the "checkpoint" system to make it easier to earn the LASO playlist achievements on the Master Chief Collection. These threads have become very disorganized and there is not much clear information on what still works after patches, so here's a new thread to organize the info and make a running list of who is willing to help other players.

So here is how using each checkpoint works, thanks to ShDwRpTr16:

Halo CE / Halo 2:
ShDwRpTr16 said:
Commonly shared through it's glitched post-ODST update version in which the party leader will try to resume from the last mission. The screen will refresh and the party leader will kick you. Seconds after, the achievement pops.
Halo 3:
ShDwRpTr16 said:
The party leader will start up the cutscene and then Save/Quit at any time. The achievement will pop for everyone else in the party.
Halo 3 ODST:
ShDwRpTr16 said:
The party leader will start up the cutscene, and one of the other players will have to skip just after the party leader Save and Quits. The idea is that when the leader hits Save/Quit you'll see the cutscene begin to fade out. The objective is to skip in between when the leader Save/Quits and before the cutscene completely fades away. As the party leader, you'll know if they other player is skipping correctly by noticing that the cutscene will immediately go black as soon as they skip, interrupting the usual fade effect. I recommend a countdown from the party leader to sync up with the other player(s). Keep in mind this one is very selective and will not work 100% of the time. As long as you're doing what I mentioned, it will work eventually.
Halo 4 / Master Chief Saga:
ShDwRpTr16 said:
This one is my own method. Not sure if anyone else uses it. I have not tested the Save/Quit on this. I start up the cutscene, forcibly quit the game. The game will select a new host while the cutscene is active and anyone within the remaining party may skip the cutscene at any time.
And here is a note for those wanting to spread the love:
ShDwRpTr16 said:
As far as sharing actual checkpoints, I have only done so in 3, 4, and ODST. Halo 3 and ODST you must complete a mission with the party leader and you as a secondary must Save/Quit at the start of the next mission. Halo 4 is similar to its achievement sharing method. Unfortunately, the only way it works is getting to the end of a mission, or to a point where neither of you can die anymore, and the party leader must leave. The secondary player will remain in the game alone and finish the mission. Then he will Save/Quit at the start of the next mission and bam, they have the checkpoint. I recommend doing this on either Reclaimer or Shutdown. The majority of both of those levels can easily be skipped.
A quick note from Shadow 00 Fox to read too about being courteous to those helping you out



Many people were willing to share their checkpoints, but no one could find them. Here's everyone who has stated they're willing and a link to their post if they ever choose to update it in the future:

I have Halo 3, 4, and ODST LASO checkpoints that I like to share here and there. I'm usually a busy guy so please don't take it as an insult if I fail to respond to you. I prefer setting up official sessions during my free time, which I usually link within these kinds of threads.

I have Halo: CE LASO and Master Saga playlist (Life Story) that I'm happy to share. BUT MESSAGE ME ON XBOX NOT TA. toast
WOW DYLAN said:
If I invite you and it wont let you connect to my game please follow these steps.

1. Tell me
2. Add me as a friend
3. Close and reload your game.
4. Once game has loaded press X on your controller this will open the IN GAME roster click on my name and click join.
5. If this doesn't work let me know and hard reset.

I only have ODST, but I'll help out lighten ShDw's work a bit since it's the most annoying/time consuming one to share.

I will create sessions on weekends from time to time and put the session link in the forum as soon as the session is created. I don't wish any private messages (neither on Live nor on TA) except there is anything really urgent.

I checked and it appears that I still have the Halo 3 and SAGA CPs. It has been a long time since I have done these and am not exactly sure if the updates have screwed these up on me.
Palesius (ODST)
Palesius said:
My schedule has started to clear up enough i can start giving away ODST LASO again.
But my times of availability are going to be more limited.

Currently my availability looks like M-F 10am-11am EST, 12:30-2:30EST, unfortunately it is a lot less than it used to be. I do have some availability out of those hours (weekend/evenings) but not reliably. So I could maintain a list and message people right before I am free and do whoever is on.
Per a PM recently sent to me:
Palesius said:
I'm helping people get ODST LASO. Don't message me, just join my session.
Boosting Gaming Session for Halo: The Master Chief Collection
The session time is just a placeholder. When I randomly have time, I will msg everyone in the session over XBL, and do as many people as I can or as many as respond for about an hour. PLEASE READ THE SESSION NOTES. If I can find an hour to help people out multiple times, you can find 3 minutes to read the session notes.

Hello folks, myself and a friend will be hosting a few ODST LASO sharing sessions over the next few weeks. If there's huge demand I'll share individually as well I don't mind. Hopefully this can take some *ahem* weight off Feros #freeFeros
BangBangPewPew (ODST)
BangBangPewPew said:
With the help and guidance of fantabulous friends, I am now able to start sharing the ODST LASO checkpoint. I will be hosting sessions during my leisure. Please look forward to them.

Do not contact me via Xbox Live. Message me on here (TA) only. If you message me and I do not respond right away, please be patient, as I will respond when I am available.

-- Kitty
And there will of course be those who simply don't want to be always available but just make their own sessions, so make sure to keep up with the thread if you really want a checkpoint.
I can read your mind... I know you have Xbox Live.

I can help you with how sharing them works.

Halo CE: Commonly shared through it's glitched post-ODST update version in which the party leader will try to resume from the last mission. The screen will refresh and the party leader will kick you. Seconds after, the achievement pops.

Halo 2: Same as CE.

Halo 3: The party leader will start up the cutscene and then Save/Quit at any time. The achievement will pop for everyone else in the party.

Halo 4: This one is my own method. Not sure if anyone else uses it. I have not tested the Save/Quit on this. I start up the cutscene, forcibly quit the game. The game will select a new host while the cutscene is active and anyone within the remaining party may skip the cutscene at any time.

ODST: The party leader will start up the cutscene, and one of the other players will have to skip just after the party leader Save and Quits. The idea is that when the leader hits Save/Quit you'll see the cutscene begin to fade out. The objective is to skip in between when the leader Save/Quits and before the cutscene completely fades away. As the party leader, you'll know if they other player is skipping correctly by noticing that the cutscene will immediately go black as soon as they skip, interrupting the usual fade effect. I recommend a countdown from the party leader to sync up with the other player(s). Keep in mind this one is very selective and will not work 100% of the time. As long as you're doing what I mentioned, it will work eventually.

Master Chief Saga: I share it the same way as Halo 4 since it's the same checkpoint.

As far as sharing actual checkpoints, I have only done so in 3, 4, and ODST. Halo 3 and ODST you must complete a mission with the party leader and you as a secondary must Save/Quit at the start of the next mission. Halo 4 is similar to its achievement sharing method. Unfortunately, the only way it works is getting to the end of a mission, or to a point where neither of you can die anymore, and the party leader must leave. The secondary player will remain in the game alone and finish the mission. Then he will Save/Quit at the start of the next mission and bam, they have the checkpoint. I recommend doing this on either Reclaimer or Shutdown. The majority of both of those levels can easily be skipped.

Oh, one last thing. I have Halo 3, 4, and ODST LASO checkpoints that I like to share here and there. I'm usually a busy guy so please don't take it as an insult if I fail to respond to you. I prefer setting up official sessions during my free time, which I usually link within these kinds of threads.

Thanks for the new thread and much love to Shadow 00 Fox for the glitch distribution history lesson - a nice touch and a good way to end the Distrubution #2 thread. Take a read on the last page.

On another note, I am interested in helping with 3, 4, and ODST sharing once I have checkpoints. Is there a special session that can be set aside just for that?

I was half-joking about starting a new thread, then I was all ready to come in with my flame-thrower wide open... and you blew me away instead with your fantastic job with this new thread. Wow, nice job!! toasttoast

I would also like to point out to everyone, if you can't get the ODST LASO from someone and feel up for it, Halo ODST is REALLY REALLY EASY compared to any of the other LASO's. You will probably want to do it in coop though just for the teamwork and extra firepower. There are a bunch of various tricks that make it easier that are detailed elsewhere, and only a few actually hard spots.

Would be so immensely grateful for the Halo 2 Laso checkpoint. I've pinned this thread and will try to keep an eye on it best I can for any sessions that get set up, but if anyone is also just able to help me out with Halo 2 Laso, let me know! Thanks smile

I would be in need of Halo 2, halo 4, and Halo ODST Laso checkpoints. Any assistance would be greatly appreciated.

I had posted in the previous forum but with no response. Hopefully I will get lucky.
The very first post tells you which people have which checkpoints and how they handle the achievement sharing.

That means: don't wait for any personal response or whatever, (almost) no sharer will take the effort of messaging you privately and tell you that there's an upcoming session or anything similar.
YOU want help and then it's YOUR job to stay updated, watch if there are any new posts or sessions.

I had a look on where you had posted something in the previous forum and couldn't find your GT in the last 7 pages which means that you'd missed my two last ODST sessions and maybe didn't even know they had existed.

---> You don't have to be "lucky" to get the achievements from those guys, yoo just have to start reading actively any posts in this forum, if that's too much... well, then you don't deserve any help from my former associates in my opinion ^^

Hi, if anyone could help me out getting halo ce, halo 2 and halo odst you would really be helping me out. Thanks in advance if anyone can :)
Same probem with you here.

'If anyone can'...
Read the very first post in this forum, you will have proof that some people can.

- For CE, private message WOW DYLAN
- For ODST, watch the forum for any session links or posts of ShDwRpTr16
- For Halo 2, we don't officially have one with this checkpoint, but there may be one or two acting behind the scenes ^^

It was hard to get to those informations, wasn't it?
