Load Tip of the Spear, starting from rally point Bravo on at least Normal difficulty. Here's a clip of mine:


And here's a text guide: Casually start following the objectives. Eventually you'll come up to a big building with the BXR logo, which will also unlock the following achievement if you look at it:
Halo: The Master Chief CollectionMind the Skill GapThe Mind the Skill Gap achievement in Halo: The Master Chief Collection worth 15 pointsHalo: Reach: Observe the logo of a buttoned-up mining company.

Leave the Warthog and go up the catwalk. After a small turret which is usually operated by an Elite, you'll turn left and in front of you you'll find a weapon rack with Assault Rifles. Moving to the left of it and going down a very small flight of stairs, you'll see a slightly shorter building in front of you with a hole in its roof. On that roof are some enemies, but most importantly there's an Elite you need to kill, he'll also have a red objective arrow on him. You can sprint and crouch jump to get on the roof or shoot him from where you are. Once he's dead, the achievement will pop. If you don't make the jump or the Elite doesn't die by your hands, just restart from checkpoint.

LAZY SHIKAMARUXDid this multiple times on normal, heroic, and legendary, didn't unlock. I think it's bugged for me.

CoffeeBurpsI've killed the guy 5 times, 4 on legendary, once on normal, and this thing aint popping. Do I need to make the jump? Cause on legendary, I just killed him from the opposite roof and on normal I missed the jump so I just ran around up the stairs to get him. No idea if I'm doing something wrong or if MCC on PC just hates me.

LAZY SHIKAMARUX^ I was playing on PC as well. I moved over to Xbox one and it still didn't pop.

MickymuseI was having trouble popping this achievement and "wake up buttercup". I saw on a post on TA somewhere that deleting your saved data from console can work. I deleted my data and cancelled sync and the achievement popped for this first attempt after, same with "wake up buttercup". Hope this helps.

x JonnyT oMickymuse, So you deleted save data from Console and Cloud?

iMaginaryy^ no, from what he said, it seems he deleted save locally from the console only, not cloud, and then booted up the game and cancelled the sync (so it did not sync cloud save at that boot, but could later) and then did the achievement. then presumably quit the game, rebooted, synced cloud save.

LAZY SHIKAMARUXTried above method, still bugged. Might be bad timing since I saw live is having issues. Will try again tomorrow.
