This is very much the same as the original achievement. All you have to do is make it to the last section of the second mission, Winter Contingency, without ever driving the Spade trucks you see throughout the mission.

It should pop right when you finish defending the Marines from the Covenant ambush and a bunch of Falcons arrive to take you to the final section.

Edit: Has to be on at least Normal difficulty or higher.
Σχ şlαy3rWorth mentioning that this needs to be on Normal or higher.

DE4N MUFC@EX slay3r I have literally just finished this level on easy and found out it needed to be done on Normal. I wonder if this is the case with the other achievements, it was never the case with the other Halo games. Looks like it worth just playing the entire game on Normal.

x1001x Puppys@DE4N MUFC I was able to get the 7 Moa achievement and the first data pad on easy but yeah, didn't get the no vehicle achievement. Thought it might have been because I sat in the pelican that transports you to the next part of the mission (couldn't remember if that was required, but it did say 'no drivable vehicles.') Will probably start the normal campaign playlist instead just to be safe.

darthmarticusDon't' do what I did and get in the forklift at the end. I got excited when I saw it and drove it around for about 5 seconds then got out. Obviously voided the achievement but I didn't realise until after.

OcreaeGetting into the Falcon is part of the mission and does not affect the achievement. And @darthmarticus I did the same thing hahahahahahaha

ParadoxReal8I just did it on normal, using a secondary controller, so I’m assure I never entered in a vehicule except when the main account is automatically spawned in the Pelican, which is unavoidable.

GYS GHOSTI have tried this on sword base so many times like a dumb,then i have put the game in english and read "winter contingency" but there are so many other errors of translation in Italian(in game)

Robster80This popped for me on Normal and AFTER I had rescued the Marines from the Covenant and the Falcon showed up; was expecting this one to pop at the end of the whole mission. Go figure.

Notorious KiwiYeah I'm pretty sure one of the methods back on the original was to have two controllers and one drives while the achievement account just stands on the back of the truck. Thanks for the guide though!

PAX WestI don't know what I'm doing wrong, I have done this mission like 15 times on solo normal and few times on co-op. Why isn't it unlocking?

ODST RaigarI've also done the requirements for this achievement over 20 times. I've tried it on both Xbox and PC, and I even tried it coop and my coop partner unlocked it, but I didn't. So much for 100%ing this game I guess.

K0nangSame thing here have done it on all difficulties and still no success.

Hannurainafor those having trouble with it unlocking try the following:

1. Deleted the local save
2. Started the game and canceled sync
3. Completed the requirement and quit once it popped
4. Deleted the local save again
5. Started the game again and allowed sync to complete.

thanks to @mattcam09
