This must be done on legendary and it can be done in co-op or single player, it depends on your preference really. It can be a mixture of both solo and co-op, (read the EDIT below) it takes the best time from whichever you did it in whether it was in solo or co-op. Some also Have reported that the achievement did not unlock in game but at the main menu looking at their times for each mission.
This will not be easy,this will take a lot of practice and patience.
I've been informed that it can be done in one sitting or in multiple, it takes your best legendary times from all the missions combined so you can keep trying at a mission. You should do it with the time turned on to see how long you're taking on each mission.
I suggest practicing each mission before hand to get down your technique so that you know what to do and are never confused meaning go for the collectibles then this.
This Achievement was named after a person who did a speed run of the first Halo for charity. when going for this achievement you should use this video to help you. (game starts at 6:50)

It's of goatrope running through the game and his final time was 1:51:19 so there is a whole hour of error available. It's also helpful that he is commenting the entire video of what should be done.

EDIT: Using skulls that have a multiplier less than 1.00 will also void your time.

If you don't like goatrope's run through use as a guide for atticus's run through.

When attempting this in co-op make sure that everyone knows where to go and that someone is always in cover to respawn those who die.
Most of the videos on the Internet use glitches that are incredibly difficult to do so try to cut down as much time as possible on certain missions so that you can have extra time to spare on others.

EDIT: According to hypobonix "Saving and quitting will set the timer back to whatever time you were at during your most recent checkpoint. As opposed to reloading the checkpoint which keeps the timer going."

EDIT: There have been reports of some people not earning it when they have mixed there time in Co-op and Solo. If you have an issue unlocking the achievement for your mixed times is to finish all levels solo and it doesn't have to be record speed. If your finish all levels solo and then your co-op it will then mix your times together.

"Hybridchld" has stated in the comments;
"For anyone having trouble getting this with mixed co-op and solo times I managed to get it mixed. What you need to do is make sure you have every level completed solo, times don't matter you can even use zero score skulls. Once you have that the game takes the best of your solo and co-op times.
This method has gotten me the speed run achievements for CEA and ODST."
KILLER1NST1NCTSI think it will be a lot easier with 4 people smashing through the campaign then solo..
would be more forgiving an you have a better chance of getting through without being killed..
also i dont think half these glitches will be available in the remade game..
considering these achievements are based off the world record holders i think 4 people is better then one hahaha
let me know what your thoughts are on these hard achievements??
Posted by KILLER1NST1NCTS on 12 Nov 14 at 08:12
CReaper210Everyone I've talked to has said that this is your fastest time in each mission combined. Not one playthrough. I REALLY hope it is not one playthrough, because that may be more frustrating than LASO...
Posted by CReaper210 on 12 Nov 14 at 09:58
Raw Sauce RossIf it's a proven fact that the best time from combined missions then that will be amazing since it will be incredibly easy then I'll change the solution immediately. For the co-op being easier it's gibestly based on the player's play style. Of course legendary will be easier but if attempting these glitches then solo would be best since you can revert to the last checkpoint. Without any glitches then co-op would be your best bet.

Elite1111111111Note to KILLER1NST1NCTS, pretty sure you can only have 2 players for Halo 1 Co-op but I could be wrong.
Posted by Elite1111111111 on 12 Nov 14 at 14:57
B0WM4NXIt's combined time, not one sitting. I can't prove that but I saw several times on gaming sites that people have gotten that answer from 343 themselves.
Posted by B0WM4NX on 12 Nov 14 at 15:47
Raw Sauce RossAwesome I'll update it
Posted by Raw Sauce Ross on 12 Nov 14 at 16:35
SashamorningSome of the DLC cheeves are not popping. I won over 10 MP games as an Elite, and it never registered even one.

May want to wait on trying this until everything in the DLC is popping correctly. This is a huge achievement, and it would suck to lose it because of a glitch.
Posted by Sashamorning on 12 Nov 14 at 17:15
B0WM4NXyeah but I'm pretty sure they will unlock eventually, On my achievements, several of mine are still not popped but say "unlocking" when i click on them.
Posted by B0WM4NX on 12 Nov 14 at 18:43
KILLER1NST1NCTSYeah I don't think these glitches will work in the new game..
I was guessing they added 4player co op to everything but maybe it's still only 2 player.. Hopefully you don't have to do it solo..
Posted by KILLER1NST1NCTS on 12 Nov 14 at 18:44
B0WM4NXI'm currently doing solo and not having a hard time so far.
Posted by B0WM4NX on 13 Nov 14 at 00:33
DRF PatchJust wanted to point out that all these speed run achievements are currently glitched. goatrope himself recently did a stream for it and it didn't unlock. the "MVP" and "Zealot" achievements are also glitched.

Also all the old speed running tricks and exploits still work so this achievement shouldn't be too bad once it's fixed
Posted by DRF Patch on 13 Nov 14 at 04:33
B0WM4NXIf that's true I guess I'll save all those speed run one's for last
Posted by B0WM4NX on 13 Nov 14 at 17:56
kegonomicsDon't think its glitched if multiple people have it unlocked now.
Posted by kegonomics on 15 Nov 14 at 08:22
DRF PatchThere was an 88mb update today that fixed it.
Posted by DRF Patch on 15 Nov 14 at 09:43
So many BearsI can confirm that this achievement is based on your best legendary times and does not need to be done in 1 sitting.

Raw Sauce Rosssince bandana disables other achievements im going to go out on a very firm limb and say no
if someone would like to try drop a comment on what you find out though please do
Posted by Raw Sauce Ross on 16 Nov 14 at 06:19
Mattynicklindoes it go off the par time counter, or your actually time, because on halo ce: annivesary.

Me and a friend did the library in under 30 minutes for the achievement, but it took us over an hour because of all the dying.
Posted by Mattynicklin on 16 Nov 14 at 09:29
Erickson187Does anyone know if this can be a combination of both solo and co op?
Question is can some levels be done solo while others are done in co op and take the lowest time from whichever it was or does it all have to be done in either solo or co op in under 3 hours?
Posted by Erickson187 on 16 Nov 14 at 18:33
EurydaceThat's what I want to know.
Posted by Eurydace on 17 Nov 14 at 18:09
Noodles JrSince it does in fact go off of your par timer. Simply beating the par time on each mission on Legendary will get you this achievement. The par times add up to 175 minutes. 3 hours is 180. It'll also net you the achievement for beating the par times of each mission. If you can get the mountain descent on AotCR as well as the deployable shield skip on Keyes, you'll save about 20 minutes combined, which could be used on levels you have trouble with. You could then go back onto that level on an easier difficulty to get the par time achievement.
Posted by Noodles Jr on 17 Nov 14 at 23:07
CHLIt's also worth mentioning that dying does not reset the timer. BUT... quitting out and loading the level back up sets the timer back to your most recent checkpoint

OverkillChaosOmg very handy trick thank you for posting this, can you elaborate on this a little more? ^^^
My problem child level is Truth and Reconciliation my best speed-run time is 56 Min, because that grenade jump is just impossible....
Posted by OverkillChaos on 18 Nov 14 at 15:06
LAFTAThat should be the solution for this Chilulu. What a handy tip that is. As long as it still counts levels which aren't completed in one sitting that is.

Can we confrim?
Posted by LAFTA on 18 Nov 14 at 23:24
UP JohnnyIs there a way to look up the times you performed earlier? I can't find it.
Posted by UP Johnny on 18 Nov 14 at 23:51
Badge ManI agree. How can we find our best times?
Posted by Badge Man on 19 Nov 14 at 00:37
UP JohnnyAlso: Does anybody know if the coop-partner will get the achievement? I only found stats for best time (legendary) and it's 18 hours from my SLASO playthrough, but I played a bit of coop (off-host) and it should be like around 5 hours now.

Sir Luxeon1:43:05 LASO coop time and no achievments its glitched
Posted by Sir Luxeon on 19 Nov 14 at 13:41
Raw Sauce Rossdoes it say "done, Unlocking..." or is it at 0%
Posted by Raw Sauce Ross on 19 Nov 14 at 13:44
Sir Luxeon0% i am sure its bugged and halo 4 campaign time is 0
Posted by Sir Luxeon on 19 Nov 14 at 22:49
fricheckenif i had half my legendary runs on solo and half on coop with under 3 hours, will my achievement pop. or does it have to be just solo or just coop?
Posted by frichecken on 20 Nov 14 at 08:44
Raw Sauce RossSir luxeon it might not be bugged because achievements weren't unlocking for me yesterday
And frichecken I believe it can be on both as long as it's legendary under 3 hours
Posted by Raw Sauce Ross on 20 Nov 14 at 12:10
OverkillChaosGot my achievement today in the morning, thank you GoatRope. clap
My biggest problem child was Two Betrayals. Whole game took me roughly 2h41m
Posted by OverkillChaos on 23 Nov 14 at 18:45
Shand Alk3I can confirm you must do it all in co op or all solo. You can NOT combine solo and co op times.
Posted by Shand Alk3 on 27 Nov 14 at 11:44
Raw Sauce RossThanks shand
Posted by Raw Sauce Ross on 27 Nov 14 at 15:22
KILLER1NST1NCTSShand Alk3 is wrong..
I completed half the missions solo an half in co op an I have unlocked "goat roped"
Can confirm this definitely can be done in both solo an co op an combined!! You can also use none scoring skulls...
Posted by KILLER1NST1NCTS on 28 Nov 14 at 01:25
Shand Alk3Then maybe mine bugged out because I had all but Keyes done solo. I had Keyes done in co op in 3 minutes. I redid it solo and got a slower time and it popped right away.
Posted by Shand Alk3 on 28 Nov 14 at 15:48
Breadly WeaponJust got Goat Roped. Did most of it co-op, but had Halo only done solo. It popped after I finished my last level co-op, got to the score screen, loaded up the next level, then quit out to main menu. I vaguely remember seeing something that said it checks and unlocks at the main menu, so that may be why?
Posted by Breadly Weapon on 29 Nov 14 at 18:01
platinumpwnzorWatch and study this beastly segmented run:

All of the glitches can still be done except for exiting the warthog through the glass on silent cartographer. Instead, use the method in the above vid. Also, for the T&R grenade jump, if you're having a hard time doing the multi-nade jump method or can't do the jump straight to the top, you don't have to get to the third level. As long as you can make it to the second level, you can walk your way up with no enemy spawns.
Posted by platinumpwnzor on 30 Nov 14 at 18:10
PRlSTlNESolo and Co-op WILL determine your final count. I haven't finished "halo" the mission solo, and i still got the achievement. IT CAN BE A MIX OF BOTH. Fix your solution.

I fixed it and some would say that it is in pristine condition wink

count023does the Assault on control room fall work on TMCC or do you have to use the shade turret drop?
Posted by count023 on 04 Dec 14 at 23:49
DRF PatchIt still works 100%
Posted by DRF Patch on 05 Dec 14 at 00:28
count023So which glass trick is platinum talking about? the one from the video (overshield drop) or the other one? (warthog fling thru closing door)? Hard to tell which one he's talking about that supposedly doesnt work anymore.
Posted by count023 on 05 Dec 14 at 04:32
m4DD0ggCan any one in europe confirmed they have done the bridge drop on the control room level, apparantly this has never worked on any PAL based edition.
Posted by m4DD0gg on 07 Dec 14 at 15:30
Belly Elly@m4DD0gg: Did this level yesterday with bridge dump in the Netherlands. It is a downloaded version so I cant guarantee its a PAL edition, can I check this is any way?
Posted by Belly Elly on 07 Dec 14 at 15:48
m4DD0gg@BabyishPath676: Thanks for confirming that, i have the disk version and have tried for 2 hours today without success. Every time i do the 2nd part i either slip off or die lol
Posted by m4DD0gg on 07 Dec 14 at 16:02
TheRealSWP@count023: The fling through the door and the drop afterwards where you go right and then onto the ramp and then down onto the overshield both work. I believe he's referring to a warthog fling where you go through the glass window on the right just before the door jams shut, which saves a few seconds.

@m4DD0gg: I've got the PAL based disc version and can confirm the aotcr bridge fall still works as normal.
Posted by TheRealSWP on 07 Dec 14 at 20:08
m4DD0ggThanks, i had seen a lot of youtube videos stating it didnt.

Guess just got to keep trying till i find the sweet spot.
Posted by m4DD0gg on 07 Dec 14 at 20:13
CanadianWhizKidHow do you see your level run times? If I go to mission select, I can see run times in bottom right corner. How do I know what difficulty and time that is referring to?
Posted by CanadianWhizKid on 12 Dec 14 at 23:10
Raw Sauce RossI believe it refers to the highest difficulty/fastest time that you have completed the mission on automatically
Posted by Raw Sauce Ross on 13 Dec 14 at 00:32
HOBO Gord420I can confirm, the AotCR bridge jump is doable in the MCC, after hours of attempts I nailed it and recorded it, just check out my clips, good hunting

xXITzMoSSYXxdoes anyone need to do two betrayals or truth and reconciliation they are the only 2 levels i need if anyone can help out or if you need these 2 levels and would like to do it with me please message me on xboxlive or TA thanks
Posted by xXITzMoSSYXx on 17 Dec 14 at 21:46
platinumpwnzor@ TheRealSWP

Yeah, I was talking about exiting the warthog through the glass window straight down to the OS. I think this bug using the warthog to clip through geometry was fixed, because I couldn't get it to work on Silent Cartographer and I couldn't get it to work on Blood Gulch (there was a rock you could clip in to near one of the bases that you could shoot out of but couldn't be hit by others.) I think it doesn't work any more. Or has someone confirmed it working in TMCC?

And the AotCR bridge jump and Keyes shield bump both work just fine. I have vids of them on my file share for anyone that needs help.

Coyote lechacalHello to all who finished the campaign today in 2h47min success does it is not unlock suddenly I wanted to know if this was normal or step knowing I have do three level co-op and all the rest in solo and I had success or to complete all levels in legendary at the time I wanted to know if there had the same problem has other people than me or if it is always glitch
Sorry in advance for my English

Posted by Blastbeat Bill on 06 Jan 15 at 19:00
Raw Sauce Rossno you need to beat each mission in one sitting as fast as you can
you can do all the missions in a long span of time such as a month but the goal is to beat the mission as fast as you can on legendary saving and quitting i believe resets the timer and if in co-op saving and quitting resets the mission itself entirely
Posted by Raw Sauce Ross on 06 Jan 15 at 21:43
hypobonixSaving and quitting will set the timer back to whatever time you were at during your most recent checkpoint. As opposed to reloading the checkpoint which keeps the timer going.

Doomkiller999I've achieved under 3 hours with a mix of co-op and solo, nothing popped yet, any ideas on how to make the game realise I've unlocked the achievement? I've tried finishing a new mission on solo legendary and top my old time, checked the leaderboards, rebooted the Xbone, nothing's worked so far
Posted by Doomkiller999 on 18 Jan 15 at 18:43
Raw Sauce RossCheck Xbox live status to see if achievements are properly unlocking atm on the one
Posted by Raw Sauce Ross on 18 Jan 15 at 21:34
EggBigotI had a mix of time that equaled 2:58:34 and got no achievement! I then Completed the only level i had not played in co-op. It was a better time than solo. Then I got it to pop. They may have changed just solo time or co-op times they don't mix together.
Posted by EggBigot on 20 Jan 15 at 19:35
Raw Sauce RossI'll add that in egg if I get more reports similar to this thank you
Posted by Raw Sauce Ross on 20 Jan 15 at 19:38
SPACE ODDITYI know Bandanna voids the achievement. I have noticed that I had done a couple of missions with the Pinata skull on, am I still ok? or have screwed up?
Posted by SPACE ODDITY on 21 Jan 15 at 12:14
Raw Sauce RossI haven't heard of pinata messing it up, but if I were you I would play it safe and turn it off. If you're close to getting it already then try getting it with the skull on because I don't think it messes with it
Posted by Raw Sauce Ross on 21 Jan 15 at 17:13
SPACE ODDITYCheers, I will do the remaining missions without any skulls and let you know if the piñata skull screwed me on the earlier missionswink
Posted by SPACE ODDITY on 22 Jan 15 at 21:03
wildwest08Add me to the list of the achievement not popping with a mix of coop and solo. Did all missions solo except for Truth and Reconciliation. Gonna have to finish that solo and hopefully it pops
Posted by wildwest08 on 25 Jan 15 at 03:54
Raw Sauce RossOkay wild west please tell us if it unlocks
Posted by Raw Sauce Ross on 25 Jan 15 at 14:58
wildwest08Finished Truth and Reconciliation solo on legendary and it did pop. Shaved 20 minutes off too :) Anyways I think you at least finish all the missions in coop or solo before it will pop. Even though it takes your best time I bet it needs to register doing all them in the same style. IDK just my opinion
Posted by wildwest08 on 25 Jan 15 at 21:07
TrapMuzik99^ Ok, I will try to do halo coop on legendary, my times add up to under 3 hours, and I have coop 9 of them (1 I have a much better solo) and the mission "Halo" I have only done on easy coop.

Posted by TrapMuzik99 on 25 Jan 15 at 21:54
CF GaMeBReaKeRfor the record i got in with a mix of co op and solo so it should work

OliverSudden01are we allowed skulls for this or not?
Posted by OliverSudden01 on 12 Feb 15 at 18:27
Games MasterI had a mix of both co-op/solo in under 3 hours with no unlock but re-did all the co-op missions solo (beating my previous time whilst doing so) and it unlocked. I should say that I hadn't completed every mission SOLELY in solo or co-op on legendary, which I believe to be the problem.
Posted by Games Master on 26 Feb 15 at 05:01
D3V1Lz ASSAZZ1Ncan u have any skulls on for this achievement, if so which ones?
Posted by D3V1Lz ASSAZZ1N on 04 Apr 15 at 20:52
Raw Sauce RossI believe the only skull that voids it is bandanna.
Posted by Raw Sauce Ross on 04 Apr 15 at 21:08
S P 4 C E YAll skulls with a multiplier of <1.00 will void par scores and par times across all titles (I believe they have 0.00 multipliers).

I completed the Library in <25 minutes but wasn't awarded this achievement until I also completed the level on co-op.

Your total time is calculated across both solo and coop BUT you must complete either solo or coop entirely on legendary (you can't just do 5 of one and 5 of the other).

I should also note I didn't unlock the achievement until I viewed the speed run leaderboards.
Posted by S P 4 C E Y on 14 Apr 15 at 14:41
Blood DMHey, just wanted to mention I had to complete this all using one method. I originally had a mix of 7 solo and 3 coop and the achievement did not pop. Time was not the matter as I had complete it in around 2 hours 30 minutes. I tried the last 3 missions solo to check if it would pop and it did as soon as I completed the last level.
Posted by Blood DM on 09 Jun 15 at 15:04
Thief44Boom got it thanks Ross!
Posted by Thief44 on 22 Jun 15 at 08:14
FlaviusPrimusDoing this co-op with 4 people is definitely doable, and a lot more fun.

I created a co-op gaming session set up for August 22nd 9am MST. 2 Spots left.
Posted by FlaviusPrimus on 17 Aug 15 at 18:14
Raw Sauce RossHalo one only has 2 player co-op
Posted by Raw Sauce Ross on 19 Aug 15 at 00:06
HybridchldFor anyone having trouble getting this with mixed co-op and solo times I managed to get it mixed.

What you need to do is make sure you have every level completed solo, times don't matter you can even use zero score skulls. Once you have that the game takes the best of your solo and co-op times.

This method has gotten me the speed run achievements for CEA and ODST
Posted by Hybridchld on 28 Aug 15 at 13:48
KnoellCan anyone tell me where you can see your times? The leader boards are failing miserable at tracking me. It has tracked times on precisely 1 out of 5 levels completed on legendary. This is annoying because I don't know if it's tracking them at all or not.
Posted by Knoell on 30 Aug 15 at 05:08
KnoellUgh autocorrect miserably*. Additional observation is that it recorded every time for my par score runs through heroic. What am I doing wrong in legendary? I always wait until the next mission starts and usually die once before saving and exiting.
Posted by Knoell on 30 Aug 15 at 05:11
hunterIVOut of curiosity, is it reasonable possible to finish CE in under 3 hours in co-op without using all the skips?
Posted by hunterIV on 07 Sep 15 at 15:22
Raw Sauce Rossyou would have to be always moving and never stopping but yes i had a couple friends do it that way and they finished with about 4 minutes to spare. Be warned though they did use i think two of the glitches.
Posted by Raw Sauce Ross on 07 Sep 15 at 20:03
NBA KirklandAnyone want to post their times? Especially if you just made it under 3hr. Thanks.
Posted by NBA Kirkland on 15 Sep 15 at 23:45
BWV 538Just for reference, my situation was this:

Completed the game on normal in about 10 hours (Lots of nostalgic comparisons between the new and old graphics)

Went back and did all the par time achievements on easy following Nak3d Eli speed run guides

Had a heart attack when I read the description of 'Goat Roped'

Did missions 1 and 2 below par time on legendary, solo
Did missions 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8 and 9 co-op legendary, all below par times using glitches and breaches etc.
(At this point, cumulative legendary time of missions 1 through 9 was about 1h50)
Re-did missions 1 and 2 coop legendary in well below par time
Did mission 10 solo legendary not worrying about time (Had 1h10 to burn effectively)

Achievement didn't unlock, so I tried the usual things - hard reset, clear cache etc

2 weeks later, did mission 10 co-op legendary in well below par time

Achievement unlocks.

So yeah, assuming my scenario wasn't subject to any achievement unlocking glitches, it would seem that it cannot be done as mixes coop/solo contrary to what has been proven by others. Strange...
Posted by BWV 538 on 17 Sep 15 at 18:15
NBA Kirkland^I believe it has been said that you must complete every mission solo legendary or every mission co-op legendary. However, your best times from each mission can be either solo or co-op. I don't think your scenario disproves that.
Posted by NBA Kirkland on 17 Sep 15 at 18:22
BWV 538Ahh, I see what you mean now, thanks for the clarification - that makes a lot more sense. Still can't help thinking that the achievement description could have been a little more clear... Oh well
Posted by BWV 538 on 17 Sep 15 at 18:25
YoDzIll try to make this as clear as possible, To have halo combine your best times in solo/co-op, you must have the campaign complete 100% on BOTH solo AND co-op. For example if you beat 4 of the mission solo and the rest co-op it wont combine your times, but if you beat all 10 missions solo then beat all 10 again co-op, it will combine your best times. When you only beat a few mission in solo(or co-op) the game dosnt reconize you beat the game fully therefor wont factor in you best times towards this achievement
Posted by YoDz on 20 Sep 15 at 11:04
Rknb117Can confirm that if it doesn't pop immediately, simply do all the missions solo legendary, can put on zero score skulls such as bandanna, and it will pop!
Posted by Rknb117 on 21 Dec 15 at 10:29
Vito084Does using the bandana skull just to finish you remaining Solow legendary missions still unlock the achievement? As I have done this and not got the achievement and I am 1min 30sec under the 3hours. It is a mix of single player and coop.
Posted by Vito084 on 22 Mar 16 at 01:46
Raw Sauce RossIf it's a mix of the times then you need to complete the game on legendary in both solo and co-op for it to properly mix your best times. If you haven't beaten it entirely solo then you can use the bandana skull to rush through it but it will void those times with the skull on, you must have both co-op and solo completed on legendary before it mixes your best times from each.
Posted by Raw Sauce Ross on 22 Mar 16 at 03:16
aBeardedWolfmanIf anyone is looking for a coop partner to do this with still. Let me know I need all the speed run achievements.
Posted by aBeardedWolfman on 16 Jun 17 at 18:16
Maverick HiroIf there's still any doubt: You dont need to finish all the levels in coop for it to count coop times! I had done the first two missions in coop and never done any progress in coop ever again. Did the rest of the missions solo and it unlocked once i got to the menu. I had done the first two missions with bandana active just to run finish it, but due to bandana the times didnt count, so it means the game used my coop time for those two.
Posted by Maverick Hiro on 02 Sep 17 at 01:29
xXMasterLuckyXxI have finished the Halo CE Campaign solo and co-op on legendary. My solo legendary time is 2:33:56 and the achievement didn't pop. At Halo waypoint the times are registert. Did anyone know about this problem?

NBA KirklandIt would appear that all 3 hour speedrun achievements are broken since the last update. Monopolized Not Unlocking. Suggestions?

Rey27Just wanted to mention that my achievement did not pop after getting a mixed total time of about 2:50. I noticed that I had all co-op missions completed on legendary except for one of them (and I only had 2 missions completed on legendary solo). After completing the only non-legendary co-op mission on legendary co-op, my achievement unlocked.

That is, when my achievement popped, only 2 missions were completed on legendary solo and ALL missions were completed on legendary co-op, although, I only made under 3 hours through a mix of both solo and co-op.

The EsklmoI completed the Legendary playlist solo and ended up with a time under 3 hours and the achievement didn't pop. I read that sometimes you have to play a mission over under campaign (why?) so I redid the first mission. Still no cheevo. My times didn't show on the main playlist or campaign screen, so I looked online and verified my times registered. I got annoyed and left it.

Today, I reset my Xbox (hard reboot) and went to the campaign screen. It was then I realized I could get to my own times of I clicked the area where my friends times were. The second I loaded this screen, the achievement popped.

Totally worth it!

TheOneRedSmurfI was just wanting to make sure before i thought about working on this. does this need to be done in 1 run or does it just add up your best times for each level? it sounds like it adds up the times. anyways thanks

Delta748Correct, it takes your best times for each level on legendary and adds them up. I got this at the post-game screen of one of the missions in the middle of the game when replaying it.

Target QGI just want to add that i had a problem with it not unlocking as well. I needed to complete one campaign, either coop or solo, on Legendary for it to work. My scores were definitely mixed but I ran through a handle of missions solo (with Bandana) just for the credit of completing them and it unlocked when I did the last one.

WulfTekDoesn't the time on Halo Waypoint also count your times on any difficulty? So if I beat a mission in 10 minutes on Legendary, but 5 on Easy won't it show the 5 minute time?

Makes tracking this a bit of a pain.

I don't think it does that. Because I have the par times for every CE level, but on Waypoint it's not showing those, for me anyways. It's showing all of my Legendary times, which at the moment are not great as most levels have 1+ hours.

MrKoolxDoodImo getting sub 10 min times on short levels like S&C, AotCR, 343 GS, PoA is critical. I was able to finish with a 50 min Library, 27 min TnR, and a 32 min TB because I had cut so much time on the shorter missions.
