nemesis646Worked brilliantly after the initial frustration jumping to the first slope. Thanks!

branstoneboyHow do you make that first jump? My pack can't even get me high enough and cuts out when I'm head-height with the slope.

cobalosIt seems like it's currently easier to start jumping to ledges earlier on the rock face and then drop down to that first ledge shown in the video.

EvilBilboXBLI just did this after so many attempts at that first jump, and it turns out I was just flat jetpacking wrong. I would always jump, wait for apex, then use the jets but you'll get so much more height if you jump then immediately use your jets.

metallicafan459I’d like me you failed to make the gap between buildings - all is not lost! Keep following the base of the new building and where it meets some new rock you can easily get up.

I mostly struggled with the first jump. I found killing the nearby wraith gave me a checkpoint, rather than the one I had at the Warthog. What made the difference for me was running on top of the logs - not sure if you did so in the video. At first I was running alongside them to gauge the end point

DaChiefOfOwnageCannot for the life of me get this achievement. Marines are never there (which apparently does not affect it) but tried it on normal, on legendary, in solo, in coop, nothing. Well and truly f'd right in the a.

TheFlaminBean@DaChiefOfOwnage me too. I seem to be following the guide to the letter to no avail. Anyone got any advice....?

DesPawsDidn't unlock for me either. Was doing it on a Legendary run (so had played the entire mission, not just loaded waypoint Charlie), MCC on PC. Will go back later and try it on easier difficulties to try and get there sooner and try and save some marines when gunning from the falcon flight so there are marines still alive there, see if that makes a difference on MCC PC.

-Edit- So, very weird. Decided to immediately try it again. Loaded up waypoint Charlie on Normal difficulty, all sculls off, all scoring off. Made a point of trying to keep those marines alive while shooting Covenant on the Falcon flight. When I landed, ignored everything, grabbed a Mongoose and drove over to the cliff. Made the first cliff jump. Then on the second cliff jump (across the water), landed in the water just short of the cliff. Let my jetpack finish cooldown, and started boosting up the cliff - at which point, the achievement popped, half the map away from the marine's location. Not sure if it was delayed from the first attempt on Legendary, or something bugged by loading it up twice in a row. Either way, just posting it here for others.
