Game: Halo 2
Mission: Cairo Station
Difficulty: Legendary
Skulls: Thunderstorm required. Scarab & Envy recommended

To get this Easter Egg to unlock you must complete the entire mission using the settings above without being hit by a single enemy bullet! Luckily you can use the Scarab Gun and the invisibility provided by the Envy skull during your playthrough. If at any point you are hit with an enemy bullet, your screen will blink red and your shield will take damage. You MUST "Last Last Checkpoint" (or die) and try again.

If you make it through the entire level into the bomb room without being hit by a single bullet, a special dialogue will come over the intercom; "Paging Megg..." and the achievement will unlock.
Hurricane MattJust done this and got Megg announcement, but due to XBL currently having issues awarding achievements it did not unlock yet :(

skydogcomWhy Thunderstorm skull is required? Halopedia.com doesn't show this.

WOW DYLANBut if you use the "SCARAB" skull achievements get disabled?

urgr8stnitemair^ same with the ENVY SKULL, it says that it disables achievements???? did they add this in after you had made this video or does it unlock anyway??? thx
Posted by urgr8stnitemair on 13 Nov 14 at 22:26
Maka91Watch and follow the video, and it will unlock.

They only disable time/score and campaign related achievements. Sometimes Easter Eggs, but usually not.

urgr8stnitemairok thank you! great vid as always

the splitter 96The scarab and envy skulls do NOT prevent this achievement from unlocking, but bandanna does. I did this with bandanna active and did not get the Megg announcement/achievement. I redid it with bandanna off, and it popped. So scarab and envy good, bandanna bad.

AirNathThanks,wasn`t fun.

PRlSTlNEFor anyone having trouble you have to walk to the back of the room for the message to trigger...which the guide neglects to say, also costing me 1:30. Thanks to who ever made the 2nd solution or id still be retrying the same pointless strats.

Doctor PlowI recommend the bandana skull for the purpose of being able to spray the SMG without worrying about ammo. It helps clear rooms with lots of enemies.

Additionally, if you're paranoid about getting hit and not realizing it like I was, try turning on the black eye skull to ensure you won't get hit and recharge and not notice.

JonnyBlazin5I used Bandana too and it unlocked fine for me.

PunderstatementGood on ya Maka mate, been using your guides for awhile and everyone is bloody spot on, you're a champ! Cheers!

efurgieMaka i'm wondering if u can do this with a coop partner? Plz answer!
Posted by efurgie on 14 Feb 15 at 01:08
BigMakiI just want to note you can hear the announcement if you wait in the elevator long enough. It will unlock as soon as you enter the room after that.
Posted by BigMaki on 03 Mar 15 at 14:38
Krnl SilverTo those wondering whether you can do it in coop, I"m almost positive you can't. I did 2 runs splitscreen and both times I was unable to get it. Did the next run solo and it popped immediately.

Achiiiiiidoes this still work, when i activate zero multiplier skulls, it says achievements will not be recorded
Posted by Achiiiiii on 13 Mar 15 at 21:25
Lord Kingslay3r@Achiiiiii Don't know if you're still worried about this, but 0x skulls only void par score and par time achivements.
Posted by Lord Kingslay3r on 13 May 15 at 17:42
TheBigBBI had to do this twice to get it to unlock. I did revert checkpoints and use the zero multiplier skulls like everyone else. For me, the message played right after I exited the elevator on the second try. I really don't think I got hit either time. Anyway, the point of this comment is so that anyone who comes here wondering why their achievement didn't unlock might be motivated to try again.
Posted by TheBigBB on 03 Jun 15 at 03:26
jordaUwUYeah I got to this point and killed all elites in the room and didn't get it. Quickly reloaded checkpoint and kept trying and it finally unlocked when I changed to original graphics and stayed in elevator
Posted by jordaUwU on 20 Jun 15 at 06:51
NDGMaxiSnap the achievement app and check there if it unlocked. I got the achevement but it didn't pop
Posted by NDGMaxi on 20 Jun 15 at 12:18
HawaiianrulerJust got it today. Used envy, scarab and bandanna to make it easier along with blackeye to make sure that if I got hit I would know. Threw on thunderstorm just because maka told me to.

TheJamesPOne thing I will add, I saw a couple of people who were having issues with the drone part, as was I, as they pretty much come out of nowhere with a rain of plasma pistol fire. As you approach the ramp that they appear from, activate your camo (Envy skull required) and jump down the ramp and run past them. They all fly towards the ceiling and won't come down. Just shower scarab gun fire upwards and take them all out. When you've killed them all, quickly turn around and kill all the guys coming out of the door behind you. Other than that a majority of this level is a breeze following Maka's guide.

DanSh0wSt0pperI played through this guide twice. First time if I took damage I would "load last checkpoint" and carry on, and the achievement didn't pop.
The second time when I took damage I would "save and quit" and reload the game. Took a while longer but the achievement did pop that time.
I don't know if it glitched the first time so I can't confirm that's the reason it didn't pop but the second way definitely works.

DCM7734This achievement can go suck a fat one.
Posted by DCM7734 on 21 May 16 at 18:05
PuckJunkieDespite the current TA flags on this achievement, I don't think it can be done in co-op. Krnl Silver above indicates that he tried in split-screen; I did it twice with a buddy online, and no achievement. We restarted any time either of us was hit. Got it the first time through on solo.

Also, it's worth noting that you can turn on the Black Eye skull to make it much easier to tell if you've been hit.

Dan vasNormandyThumbs up from me.

ParadoxReal8Ahaha I didn't even had to get out of the elevator in the bomb room. This achievement, if done correctly can unlock just before when you arrive in the elevator. I couldn't believed it myself. dance

ResinousHashishValid as of 12/24/17.

I had to sit in the bomb room for 45+ seconds before the dialogue started, I was about to quit then it popped.

I recommend giving it a minute or two before quitting as it may not be instant like in the video!

The Last RascalGreat guide! Much easier than I thought it would be.

Boomy EUThis glitched for anyone? I have done this twice and I'm confident I didn't get shot yet the achievement is not popping???

MAZE RUNNER 720th January 2019, just got this with BANDANNA skull on. Great video.
Posted by MAZE RUNNER 7 on 20 Jan 19 at 21:04
OptionalOwlI did without the SCARAB skull. Its to close quarters.
Used BANDANNA for unlimited ammo/grenades & BLACK EYE so I could tell when I got hit.
Posted by OptionalOwl on 04 Jul 19 at 13:09
UndreamedTerrorcheers Maka, needed that guide at the end. was totally lost.

top work as ever... not sure on the text though... so superb translations on the screen!

FinalSnake EyeCan confirm bandanna works along with black eye.
Posted by FinalSnake Eye on 19 Jan 20 at 23:03
Case Dang ItCan it be done on co-op? With a player essentially dragging another through the level?
Posted by Case Dang It on 15 Apr 20 at 02:13
TarvuI put black eye on just in case I took a little damage and didn't notice immediately. Bandana too.
Posted by Tarvu on 15 May 20 at 12:20
JE5U5 5AV35I can confirm it does not work with co-op. Took me a while, but got two players through with no damage to either, no achievement
Posted by JE5U5 5AV35 on 18 May 20 at 07:33
PeddlerofAlcohoThis still works as of 10/28/2020. I played on single player.
Posted by PeddlerofAlcoho on 29 Oct 20 at 05:28
EtherionNatsunot sure if anyone else has had this happen but my game has crashed multiple times towards the end of the mission, think it might be due to the scarab skull
Posted by EtherionNatsu on 27 Mar 21 at 22:49
Luke17000the trick of converting to old graphics and waiting in bomb elevator for about 30 seconds was key to getting the achievement

Jamone the AfroThank you LB2LA, that worked a treat

Lw N1GHTM4R3I've done this 3 times and still no achievement.... It always says, "All non-combat personal report to the evacuation station." Either I'm stupid af or there has to be something else that triggers this...
Posted by Lw N1GHTM4R3 on 12 Jan at 18:34
Lw N1GHTM4R3ok.. After 7 attempts at this achievement, I'll shine light on it for those who are having the same issue as me. This achievement is not tied to whether you take damage or not so this whole, "complete the entire mission without being hit by a single enemy bullet!" thing is completely false. The achievement is tied to whether your shields are full or have recharged at any point in the game. Idk if it was because I was too slow at reverting last checkpoint or what, but what finally did it for me was activating the Black Eye skull. I never reverted a checkpoint and I even got hit a bunch, but I still got the achievement. Just make sure you have full double overshields (Green shields) when you enter the final elevator.
Posted by Lw N1GHTM4R3 on 13 Jan at 01:52
vexer6I actually had this one pop before I even reached the end of the level, I was in the final elevator shooting the enemies that appeared once the door opened and suddenly I got it.
Posted by vexer6 on 25 Jan at 05:46
joeboomersI beat this using scarab, blackeye and envy skull three times using the last checkpoint method and it didn't pop. I saw someone say they had to save/quit instead so I did 1 run that way. I walked into the room and stood near the marine and finally heard the announcement over the intercom and it popped.
Posted by joeboomers on 09 May at 15:16
DazelleI followed all the previous advice but it still didn't pop for me. But then I tried a run where I reset last checkpoint if I accidentally killed myself with the scarab skull instead of letting the game restart for me, and that did it for me.

ComradeSkyI have spend over and hour and it never unlocks. I really hate these achievements.
