Mission: The Oracle

This takes place near the beginning of the level, when you enter the first large room. In this room, go to the right side where you will notice 4 pillars standing closely together. You'll want to jump on the left pillar and then turn to face the middle of the room. Use your gun to shoot out the glass tube above, and then crouch-jump into the middle structure. Once inside the middle area, shoot out a window above, and crouch-jump two more times out on to the top level of this area. Once one the top floor area, you will find a floating holo-drone (looks like a plasma grenade) in one of the holes in the wall. There is no pillar near this hole, so you will have to use a well times plasma grenade jump to boost yourself up. Once inside this room, the achievement will unlock!
SergeantMajorAJDon't know if this will help anyone else, but I did find a little bit easier way (while still using this as a base). When you first walk into the room and go to the right like he did, stop and shoot out the glass opposite (the one on the right when you walk in). then grenade jump to get in. Also if you shoot out the glass next to the one that he jumps into and crouch jump on it it then walk over to the one that he uses to get up. From there its the same. I don't know if this will help anyone else just figured I'd mention it as it is what worked for me

killerRobzYou don't need jump into the room where you have to go on the ramp to jump onto the window. You can just jump straight onto the window. Got the achievement easy. Thanks for the guide tho :)

farmnoobAs killer said, rather than jump from the pillar into the broken glass area then onto the ramp you can just crouch jump onto the ramp. I was never able to actually jump into the window because i always ended up on the ramp. You just have to make sure you jump at the last second (near the end not exactly on the end).

Maka91@breedhate69, legendary is not required.

shadowninja25I can confirm that it's not required. Just did it on Easy

laclippsWith the sputnik skull on, I grenade jumped from the very first pillar in the room to the holo drone. No need to deal with glass or windows.

NuttinSpecial88When I did it in a playlist it didn't unlock, so I just went to mission select and it worked fine. Also, laclipps idea works great :)

DaeryoonI did it by jumping up from the pillars to the top of the center area. Then up the side. Grenade jump into opening to see holo-drone. Here is a video: playing

Count Flanders@laclipps has the best solution

Lege vaasIt took me at least a hundred tries, but it worked. Thanks.

Senior ChuponMight be a dumb question but how do you get grenades if I'm out? Is it carrying over my progress from the arbiter where I had none?
Posted by Senior Chupon on 29 Nov 16 at 23:17
Senior ChuponAnswered my own question. Restarting the mission reset my inventory

Timeless Magiclaclipps thank you!

PHARREAL87On easy difficulty and sputnik on I couldn't see the object. Switched to normal with no sputnik and got it. This is a very simple grenade jump, sputnik makes it harder to do this grenade jump in my opinion.

Bootybandit1Hate the jumping on this game 😡

MoustachioI used easy and sputnik and found the object without any issue. I wouldn't say the grenade jump is harder, it just needs placed back further. From where he placed his in the video, with Sputnik I placed mine almost at the start of that straight area near where it makes a 90 degree bend.

OzbrithianThe video isn't dark enough. I can see it too well.

BaradurStill works.
Just had to wait 12 hours for it, to actually unlock.

Tozi TiberiusThe Sputnik skull makes the final jump way harder. Either try to make the jump from the beginning or leave the skull off.

Kanchanaburitrying to make that jump into the door of the room - 1 time out of 50. Definately not the way to get this.
Posted by Kanchanaburi on 09 Mar 20 at 02:12
Riahi JrTo make the jump in the room you just need to hold crouch before, while and after you jumped, basically walk forward while holding crouch the whole time and while jumping

TeeJayDFSVery easy to get to; however, I originally did it on easy. The oracle was not there. Loaded map again and still wasn't there. Loaded on legendary and it was there. Some say they did it on easy but 11/11/2020 I had to do it on Legendary. Literally no encounters though so it's not a big deal.

Mau5mattI failed the final grenade jump and still got the achievement

MecandesCan be obtained easier with the Acrophobia skull now.

(For some reason it wasn't there when I first went to it, restarting checkpoint didn't help, but it was there when I restarted the level as a whole.)
