For those of you looking for the easiest solution

1. Complete the game on Co-op Legendary
2. Play solo on Legendary and just go to the last checkpoint on each mission.

If you don't believe me just try it on ONE level and once you complete it you will see that it will give you credit for completing it under the mission selection screen. "Highest Difficulty Completed" it WILL show Solo Legendary.
JamP0undDoes it have to be done co-op legendary beforehand? Or as i've finished the game on normal could i just do the last checkpoint on legendary or would that not work?

CorpserYou don't actually have to complete it on co-op first, playing through the game on easy solo and changing to legendary on the last rally point of each level will also work.

MythzYes he is right easy on solo would work just fine too. However, I would not recommend it because you need to get used to the difficulty of the game or you are still going to have a hard time.

Crater BobSweet, that'll save some time getting to Raider DSTT armour, and it'll get Lone Wolf Legend out of the way before I start classes again in nine days, thanks boys!

FPSDeathSo for every mission you started at rally point bravo??
Posted by FPSDeath on 13 Jan 13 at 02:40
NeedlessBeastCan you clarify on this. Do you need to complete on coop legendary first. I have finished it on heroic coop and tried the last checkpoint but get no credit when completing a level.

MythzAccording to some it doesn't matter as long as you load the last rally point on each level to legendary. However, the way I did it was beat the campaign on Coop Legendary, then went to solo and loaded the last rally point on each level for achievement.

Dontasciimejust play it properly stop cheating yourself

DJ 0311^ there's one of the negative votes. I don't understand people like this, TA is dedicated to unlocking achievements and this solution states the most efficient way to unlock this achievement. I love Halo and am willing to put in the time to get the completion, but not everyone does. Personally, I think you are on the wrong site if you are going to hate on people for using a legit method to unlock an achievement.

ZymoticI just did this today. As others have said, it doesn't have to be co-op or on legendary. I first did the co-op on Heroic and went back and got Lonewolf on Legendary. +1

John CabooseHey man you should change your solution to reflect the fact that you don't need to finish it in co op legendary. Just say "finish the game either solo or in co op on any difficulty".
Posted by John Caboose on 19 Jul 13 at 13:57
Izzy of AlbionI would like to add that although the mission will count as being completed on legendary as far as the achievement goes, it won't count for a challenge. What I mean is, I had a challenge available which was "Complete Requiem solo on legendary difficulty". I hadn't done it on legendary before. I loaded Rally Point Bravo. When I finished the mission, it had counted as being completed on legendary, but the challenge was not completed. I had to do it again from the start for the challenge to pop.

HarbringernightI understand the cheated as in self cheated. Never would have used myself (have a thing about beating every halo on legendary) but more power to people who want to.

Sofrech1991Though I personally disprove of exploits of this nature, I applaud the people who find them and point them out to the gaming community. Thumbs up from me!

YaziteI always do every halo campaign on solo legendary legitimately. Its kinda like a state of habit with me.
Posted by Yazite on 11 Dec 13 at 20:26

Just got around to doing this, obviously, still works.

Chosen One 41As of July 25th, 2015 this still works

Also I find it quite funny that a few people think this is cheating. You still have to be good enough to play on legendary solo to get this, this method just shortens the amount of time it takes to get it.

Crater BobStill working as of October 2nd, 2017.

I've been working on the missions (about five years later than I started) the last few days/nights, and now I just have Midnight left. There were a few headaches, but booting up the last checkpoint of each mission still works, all my missions so far read completed on Legendary, and once I get Midnight done on the last checkpoint, the achievement should pop, I'll report back when Midnight is finished.

FuzzedUpCookiedo you have to do a level on easy and do last checkpoint on legendary straight after or just have it all done on easy and go to the last checkpoint on legendary whenever you want?
Posted by FuzzedUpCookie on 18 May 19 at 15:28
MisterSledgeDid this today. Can confirm it still works and I didn’t have to beat the level on Legendary Co-op first. I had some that I had beaten on Easy or Heroic. Loading up last checkpoint worked for all. Thanks for this tip!
