So far I've just been using Mythic Tyrants LASO guide from back when it was a weekly challenge and it is working like a charm. He explains what he is doing as well so you have commentary. *see edit though*

Edit: Halo Completionist just started the mcc version for laso, so another guide
CF GaMeBReaKeRis there still the exploit where you can get a save from someone else at the end of the campaign?

wildwest08It doesn't right now. Had someone finish it solo and when they tried to invite me and another friend it said the playlist would restart since it changed to coop

Mr SkottoIf there was a way, there would be a checkpoint sharing thread on the forum.

The old checkpoint sharing trick stopped working during one of the games patches.

"Nightfall" and
"Long Night of solace".

CF GaMeBReaKeROk thanks guys guess I will just do this one legit, I had 100%d the base game pretty fast so I had not realized they fixed the checkpoint sharing at some point.

biglou117Good video’s but on MCC Blind is an active skull which for me is the worst one. Guess I’ll have to put something on the screen for my aim. Never could get use to no gun cursor.

SycomaniaaJust confirmed you have to actually beat all the levels. You can't just join on the last one.

Inferno118The CP sharing is patched I believe but it can be modded with trainers. Half the ppl who have unlocked this used external tools from what I’ve seen

the JeffreyTM^ the Halo completionist guides are absolutely fantastic. I 100% recommend him for literally any halo achievement

A DEAD B0DY MANYa found mythic tyrants old laso guide useless as its not true laso, can see your gun a few good skips..

xMoBBzYFYI - You all will be using the Save/Quit method if you haven't done LASO before. One major issue with this.... it seems to break from Exodus onwards.
On Exodus i reached the Brute Captain fight, save/quit from checkpoint in a safe area without dying, come back on the next morning and back at the start! Very next run i was up to the batteries at the end and died, save/quit to come back to the start of the mission!

FreshPrince513Is the Blind skill required for this? It was not needed on 360 for LASO runs. This guide doesn’t have it on either.
Posted by FreshPrince513 on 08 Dec 19 at 20:07
xMoBBzYYou need to select the LASO playlist, you cannot get this by selecting the level and enabling skulls.

ninjaraiden2003Just finished getting it legit, honestly isn't that bad. Save/Quit worked fine all the way through for me. Only issue I had was for some reason the concussion rifle you pick up at the start of The Pillar of Autumn for the MAC Cannon skips at the end only had 7 rounds in it for me and not 8. Obviously with the blind skull on I had no way of knowing this.

So I happily jumped up using my first 4 rounds and took out the easy first wave of Covenant leaving 4 Jackals. Jumped down to get my DMR ammo and head back up and realised I only had 3 left. So I had to see it out the hard way and fight the full 2nd and 3rd waves. Had I know I only had 7 I'd have taken out the 1st wave on the ground, gotten my DMR and THEN headed up top to blow away the Phantoms to thin out waves 2 and 3.

Also, the ended with having to shoot the Cruiser twice with the Mass Driver was a pain. It's just completely down to RNG if you live long enough to get the time to deliver two shots. Not only do you need enough health to withstand any Phatntom shots but an RNG Banshee Bomb will just instakill you no matter what.

IxXToteXxII think 4 players LASO run would be the easiest way to go. Solo is just a pain the ass with save and quit, but Halo 2 is a pain with two players according to some people.

Light994Ok guys this is my experience: I completed all reach laso playlist yesterday but I didnt unlock the achievement. I think because I didnt complete them in the right order. I started from second mission and finished all the others except the first mission. When I completed the first mission it didn t unlock. Now I have 12/12 missions in the playlist but no the achiev. I suppose I need to complete the Lone Wolf mission again... if anyone can help me please let me know.

YaziteI'm thinking of doing this solo with a second controller idle so I don't have to do save and quit. Has anyone done this and would recommend it? Would I be able to resume playlist this way?

InTerNal DaZeI'm about half way through on SLASO. Up to Long Night of Solace, but when I go into the playlists menu to load the mission, as soon as the level loads, I get a white screen and booted back to the main menu. Any thoughts on how to fix this? I'm really don't want to restart the playlist.

vl Insane lvJust finished this. For last mission I recommend killing the elites in that final room. I ran by them first time then waited to jump on cannon. I would just get melted everytime. I also didnt have full health. So had to redo mission. Killed all the elites, grabbed a health pack, then started cannon part and finished it. Looked on leaderboards it's funny how most people obviously cheated. Pathetic. Laso isn't even that hard just have to be really patient.

KexolWhile going for this achievement, will it unlock the "Lone Wolf" achievement?
