LifeExpectancy’s Halo: The Master Chief Collection walkthrough has been given a thumbs up by 896 community members.

As the estimated completion time for this walkthrough indicates, this is a huge undertaking. LifeExpectancy’s done a lot of work — with contributions from MC0REBE — to get this walkthrough together, including updating it every time a title was added. In the walkthrough overview, they go through how it’ll be broken up: each game has its own section, which goes through the campaign achievements first, before covering the miscellaneous ones.

The exception to this is Halo 2, where LifeExpectancy has provided a separate Halo 2 Multiplayer and Miscellaneous page, since there are so many. There’s also a separate page for Cross-Game achievements. The guide details the most effective strategy for unlocking achievements with the best efficiency, with recommended YouTube playlists for LASO achievements. It’s a huge amount of work, and players should walk away from it with 700 more achievements to their name.

If you've used this guide and found it helped you out, please make sure to thank the author. You can ask questions in the Halo:The Master Chief Collection walkthrough thread. As with all of our walkthroughs, you can access a single page, printer-friendly version as well.

If you come across any games without walkthroughs on TrueAchievements and think you're up to the challenge of writing one, you can head over to our walkthrough forum and volunteer. There are walkthroughs that need porting thanks to various versions and platforms, and also a list and discussion of older walkthroughs that could do with an update.

As always, we are enormously grateful to the walkthrough writing community, and the walkthrough management team, for taking the time to make achievement hunting easier for all of us.

Hey, I'm Heidi! I've just finished studying a Masters in English Literature, but I've been obsessed with gaming since long before then. I began on the PS2 with Spyro, before graduating to the Xbox 360 and disappearing into Skyrim. I'm now a loyal RPG fan, but I still like to explore other genres — when I'm not playing Assassin's Creed Odyssey, or being lured back into Red Dead Redemption 2 or The Witcher 3!
