I believe it was Halo: CE that had the most significant changes after one of the initial patches with regards to the LASO playlist. Several skulls were added after one of the early patches to the game. In particular, the Iron skull wasn't in the playlist initially:

https://www.halowaypoint.com/en-us/news/the-halo-bulletin-yo...

The initial list was:

Black Eye, Boom, Fog, Eye Patch, Foreign, Famine, Malfunction, Recession

The new list is (bolded skulls are new):

Black Eye, Eye Patch, Famine, Fog, Foreign, Iron, Mythic, Recession, Boom, Grunt Birthday Party, Grunt Funeral, Malfunction

The Iron skull of course makes it so you have to quit and reload any time you die, which is a major annoyance. The Mythic skull gives enemies increased health, which means you have to go for headshots on the Covenant or you will run out of ammo; and the flood are much harder to kill as well. GBP doesn't do anything of note, but Grunt Funeral is probably the most interesting skull added as it actually can help you quite a bit especially in the first half of the game. Combined with the Boom skull you can strategically use grunts to clear out large swaths of Covenant especially in the first half of the game.

IMO, it's actually a tougher call than it seems between the two sets of skulls. Not having Iron and Mythic on will save you lots of annoyance, but Grunt Funeral in the new list is actually a mostly beneficial skull that can really make some of the earlier levels in particular a lot quicker and easier. Honestly, I would probably just go with the current list and deal with the Iron and Mythic skulls. The hardest level of the game on LASO is Truth and Reconciliation, mainly due to a severe lack of ammo, and the Grunt Funeral skull helps there a lot, especially during the fight right after you get onto the ship. It's going to be hard no matter how you do it though, so good luck.

Hey I read from the first post that checkpoint sharing isn't a thing anymore, but was curious how so. I have Halo 3 and 4 cp still saved on my xbox (digital copy and just looked couple hours ago). Saw the message that they are having issues with halo 3 mid mission cp so that one might be dead anyway but I don't even remember how to share it as its been a while since I did. Thanks
LASO checkpoints were not removed with the 4K update but the online sharing method we used to do got patched, thats why the sharing isn't a thing anymore.

From my understanding is that by having the checkpoints the only thing that could help people is if they finished the entire laso campaign and it did not unlock for them. Checkpoint sharing might help them unlock it then. Otherwise the traditional method has been patched

Ok, thanks. Guess Ill finally be able to get the achievement for finishing 3 Halo 3 and 4 playlists XD. On a side note, anyone know if there is a form that I'm missing for bulk score runs or should I start one for the help?

So I’m a little confused with the changes as I have never done this before.

Is it now only possible to get the LASO achievements by completing the whole playlist legit, since checkpoint sharing is now gone?

Short answer, yes.

The checkpoint sharing method to get the achievement is gone but I’m confused on how this exactly works. I played LASO for halo 3 with a friend and in his playlist he was on The Storm. After we gave up for the day my playlist progress now has the LASO campaign as in progress and I can resume from the same level. If I were to continue and beat the rest of the missions with him would I get the achievement or do I have to still start from the beginning?

I made a thread about getting the LASO achievements. I really am not looking forward to starting this so if there's a wizard on this site and could help us out... that would be great

Did you try resuming from the level you left off at? Most likely you have a glitched checkpoint. I would be very interested to hear what happens when you try to resume that game.
I don't know if anyone knows what happens now--it used to be all you had to do was finish the final level, but I think the patch may have made it so you have to beat all levels yourself. I don't know the answer on that... perhaps you can find out?

I’ll keep playing with him to see if it does. I definitely loaded the mission up and I was on the Storm and everything. However it also says in my playlist progress that I only have 1/11 complete since I’ve only really beaten Arrival successfully, even though I can resume from the Storm.

Wow, that sounds like one of the working checkpoints from before. Previously, all that was needed was to view the final cutscene... I'd be very interested if your checkpoint doesn't break and continues... especially for the final cutscene!smile

Anybody got a checkpoint for Maw for The Legendary Master Chief Collection Saga (the LASO one) and for H3 epilogue for the same playlist?

Me and a friend need them for completing that playlist since those missions are missing for us.

I will appreciate that help. Thanks!

What about offline sharing ? If someone got the checkpoints and he logs your account on his console in ( splitscreen ) is that possible ? Greetings Nicholas
