We all know what an overshield is right ? If you don't then throughout the level "Pillar Of Autum" you'll see some grunts and elites get out of pods in walls where they start boarding the ship and inside there are 2 pinkish boxes at the back left and right. To get this achievement you can NOT pick those up so whenever you see one of these ships attached to the wall it's best not to enter and just steer clear of it. Once cheif gets on his escape pod the achievement will unlock :)
JernauGurgeh SFIn case anyone is wondering, you can die as many times as you like and still get this achievement - so not as hard as it could have been!

AARMISTERI didn't get this achievement playing co-op! My partner grabbed it but I never did, I wonder if that matters or not? Can anyone confirm this?

xTGEI can confirm that it can be picked up in co-op, it's how I picked it up :)

Honz BrixCan skulls be used? I got this on the 360 version of Halo CE: Anniversary and used the Bandanna Skull, but have heard that those skulls are disabling achievements this time

xTGEYes skulls can be used. Skulls like bandana only void level based achievements "complete halo" "complete pillar if Autumn" ect

BabyblueI can't seem to get this unlocked, I know I'm not picking up any overshields. Are people still experiencing achievements not unlocking properly?
