Legend Slayer

To obtain this achievement you must kill someone else who has this achievement:

Halo: The Master Chief CollectionLegendary AnniversaryThe Legendary Anniversary achievement in Halo: The Master Chief Collection worth 98 pointsHalo 2: Complete every level of the game on Legendary difficulty.


Yesterdays patch (12/15/14) fixed this achievement and it can now do it in custom matches with a friend. If you have no friends with the Legendary anniversary achievement they can be found in matchmaking.

If you have a friend with it willing to help you can get this knocked out of the way, but otherwise don't waste time trying to find someone, work on the other matchmaking required achievements and you could easily get this one by chance.

If you are really having a hard time getting this achievement and can't seem to kill someone with it just add my XBL account and send me a message and ill work at helping you get it.
Ultras500You can't pass it on unless you have the Legendary Anniversary achievement, killing someone with the Legend Slayer achievement won't work.

Strategy OneYea I realized that, fixed it.

Strategy OneI could use it, would appreciate it :)

RyiBVB09completed the halo 2 campaign on legendary if anyone needs help
Posted by RyiBVB09 on 18 Nov 14 at 15:39
EarlydazeDo you have any idea if this can this be done in custom game, by inviting someone who has it?
Posted by Earlydaze on 19 Nov 14 at 09:26
Lost KillazI try it with a friend and we didn't get the cheevo, we both have the Legendary Anniversary achievement and tried it in costume games, is this a matchmaking achievement too or glitched? eventually we did something wrong but the description says only a normal kill or?
Posted by Lost Killaz on 19 Nov 14 at 16:38
Strategy OneCould be matchmaking, try it and let me know so I can put it on here.
Posted by Strategy One on 19 Nov 14 at 19:17
NitrousSpeedI tried in custom games with RyiBVB09 and it didn't unlock and then we tried in matchmaking but it wouldn't put us on opposite teams so we couldn't try and see

Strategy OneIsn't there a rumble to play on where its free for all?
Posted by Strategy One on 20 Nov 14 at 17:18
DeathBomMB007try downloading the title update see if that helps :)
Posted by DeathBomMB007 on 21 Nov 14 at 00:45
Strategy OneI believe everyone downloads the Title update upon starting the game...
Posted by Strategy One on 21 Nov 14 at 02:41
NitrousSpeedThey took rumble pit out to fix matchmaking problems
Posted by NitrousSpeed on 22 Nov 14 at 06:17
Strategy OneThat sucks.......... Well then this will be hard to get until they give rumble pit back.
Posted by Strategy One on 22 Nov 14 at 08:45
t smugzi killed my friend in matchmaking, no achievement... i think it must be done in rank playlist, just like the zealot achievement...
Posted by t smugz on 24 Nov 14 at 21:47
NitrousSpeedRumble pit is back. But it doesn't allow u to earn this achievement as I killed a guy that had it but it didn't unlock. So it has to be done in the Team Halo 2 Anniversary playlist
Posted by NitrousSpeed on 24 Nov 14 at 22:39
iG N1ghtm4r3For some reason, this is not unlocking for me. I done this in matchmaking and custom games multiple times and I get nothing. Please make something useful that explains the actual achievement.
Posted by iG N1ghtm4r3 on 27 Nov 14 at 21:58
NitrousSpeedI agree I just killed someone that had the achievement but it didn't pop. What playlist are u guys getting it in cause I only play Team Halo 2: Anniversary
Posted by NitrousSpeed on 28 Nov 14 at 00:24
Strategy OneOnce I figure the exact way to get it I will post it. I just know it requires killing someone with this achievement somewhere. It must be a specific way to do it being buggy.
Posted by Strategy One on 28 Nov 14 at 04:48
NitrousSpeedAnd I will appreciate help getting it also once u get Legendary Anniversary
Posted by NitrousSpeed on 28 Nov 14 at 06:20
Strategy OneIm close to getting it, probably tommorow, the hard part is figuring out how to give someone it. I even played some matchmaking today, couldn't even find a match solo.. We will see when I unlock it what we can try to do.
Posted by Strategy One on 28 Nov 14 at 06:22
NitrousSpeedOk bud that would be great. I invited 2 guys that had it to party. We would search for a match in the Team Halo 2 Anniversary and whoever got a match with people would invite party to game and everyone would be in that lobby. Then it's just about having the game put them on other team. I killed them both but achievement didn't pop. So this one is bugged or glitched with the latest update. But 600+ have it but there not saying how they got it
Posted by NitrousSpeed on 28 Nov 14 at 07:17
Strategy OneWell it says the last people to unlock were yesterday so either this recent patch made it currently unobtainable or its bugged in a certain way, when did you attempt to get this achievement? Ill post as soon as we can confirm either.
Posted by Strategy One on 28 Nov 14 at 07:55
NitrousSpeedYesterday but a buddy of mine got it today but he doesn't remember how he got it or what playlist he was in
Posted by NitrousSpeed on 28 Nov 14 at 20:57
iG N1ghtm4r3I done this before and after the latest update and I'm unable to get it. I was even partied up with a full party and no one in the group was able to get it. We even tried switching our nameplate to the bronze legendary nameplate (for beating halo 2 legendary) to see if that had anything to do with it and we were still unable to get the achievement.
Posted by iG N1ghtm4r3 on 29 Nov 14 at 01:13
Strategy OneYea good effort Final but I think its still obtainable since other people are still getting it. Ive been playing in Halo 2 anniversary matchmaking and if I get it off a random ill say how, but it must be really tricky to get or something..
Posted by Strategy One on 29 Nov 14 at 08:19
iG N1ghtm4r3I believe so as well. I'll keep trying and hopefully one of us can figure this out.
Posted by iG N1ghtm4r3 on 29 Nov 14 at 08:21
Strategy OneYes anyone post if anyone unlocks it, post where and how it was unlocked, also if it was in a Ranking playlist, I hear that is important.
Posted by Strategy One on 30 Nov 14 at 07:02
Lost KillazI can confirm that you "not" have to play in ranked, i got the achievement in "Rumble" by a Showdown BR match. (after that new ca. 100Mb update).
Posted by Lost Killaz on 04 Dec 14 at 01:12
Strategy OneThanks Killaz
Posted by Strategy One on 04 Dec 14 at 05:58
Lost KillazNo problem^^
Posted by Lost Killaz on 04 Dec 14 at 23:31
NitrousSpeedCan anyone that has beat Halo 2 on legendary help me get Legend Slayer? Message me I can help with anything also

IXI FalcoNKilled a guy in the ranked playlist last night with Legendary Anniversary and got nothing cry
Posted by IXI FalcoN on 06 Dec 14 at 12:58
NitrousSpeedI just killed someone in rumble pit after the last 2 updates and it didn't pop for me. I don't get why it won't pop for me but everyone else is getting it
Posted by NitrousSpeed on 09 Dec 14 at 06:33
Strategy OneI wish I knew the answer, I will post if one is found, people telling me HOW they got it would help.
Posted by Strategy One on 09 Dec 14 at 06:39
NitrousSpeedLe Lone Wolf - It would and I would love to get it as I just killed my friend just a few mins ago who has Legendary Anniversary and Legend Slayer in a Rumble Pit match but he doesn't know how he got Legend Slayer. I wish they would just allow it to be earned in custom games as it would make it easier and not bugged. I hope someone states how they got it and I know you will help us get it after u get Legendary Anniversary.
Posted by NitrousSpeed on 09 Dec 14 at 06:58
Strategy OneYea..... Im trying to figure this out, and havent been spending time on Halo lately... but when I do anyone here who needs it if possible I will help them get it.

l306l PoRkRoAsTEarned in a ranked match today
Posted by l306l PoRkRoAsT on 09 Dec 14 at 12:32
DoodlerI've killed multiple people with the achievement in Rumble and Team Halo 2: Anni and no pop for me, gone in and double checked their achievements if/ when I see they have legendary nameplates to be sure. Really annoying.
Posted by Doodler on 10 Dec 14 at 00:34
Strategy OneThere must be some trick to getting it because there are alot of people getting it and others that are not.
Posted by Strategy One on 10 Dec 14 at 02:22
HaloMonkey3009I just got the Achievement today after meleeing a guy to death, and I died at the same time. It was the last kill of the match so it ended as my Chievo popped.
Posted by HaloMonkey3009 on 10 Dec 14 at 18:05
NitrousSpeedHaloMonkey3009 - Did u melee him in the back or front? I don't think it matters if it was last kill or dying at the same time. Its a very bugged achievement
Posted by NitrousSpeed on 10 Dec 14 at 19:00
FLUFFYR00So is this achievement boostable?
Posted by FLUFFYR00 on 10 Dec 14 at 21:04
NitrousSpeedFLUFFYR00 - Yes it is in the Rumble Pit playlist. If you have Legendary Anniversary u can share this one with people. This is the last online one I need. I would love help getting it. I have killed many people who have beat Halo 2 on Legendary but this achievement won't pop for me
Posted by NitrousSpeed on 10 Dec 14 at 22:21
FLUFFYR00NitrousSpeed - I haven't got the Legendary Anniversary achievement (having a nightmare on halo 2). I will ask about today to try and find someone with the achievement and message you so we can boost this
Posted by FLUFFYR00 on 11 Dec 14 at 08:41
Strategy OneHalo 2 legendary isn't hard Imo just the par scores are hard, legendary speed run, and LASO. Just finishing the game on legendary is easy...
Posted by Strategy One on 11 Dec 14 at 08:53
FLUFFYR00Le Lone wolf - im following speedruns for delta halo and i cant trigger any checkpoints. So do you have the legendary anniversary achievement? If so do you want to help me finish halo 2 off then we can help others with the legend slayer achievement
Posted by FLUFFYR00 on 11 Dec 14 at 10:14
Strategy OneCan't promised someone to play it with them...
Posted by Strategy One on 11 Dec 14 at 10:26
NitrousSpeedFLUFFYR00 & Le Lone Wolf - I will appreciate it message me on here or Xbox. I'm on evenings around 9 Pm EDT during the week and available all day every weekend since I work during the week.
Posted by NitrousSpeed on 11 Dec 14 at 19:03
NitrousSpeedI finally got the achievement. I think the trick is you have to have someone that has beat Halo 2 on Legendary Solo. And it can be earned in Custom Games.
Posted by NitrousSpeed on 13 Dec 14 at 06:44
Strategy OneIf that is so then thats crazy..
Posted by Strategy One on 13 Dec 14 at 06:47
NitrousSpeedMy friend helped 15 people get it last night and he was host. We did Lockdown H2A in a custom game and 1st kill it popped. And he beat Halo 2 on Solo Legendary. So apparently that's how it unlocks till they fix it. Find someone that has beaten it on Solo Legendary
Posted by NitrousSpeed on 13 Dec 14 at 07:05
MathGuy42According to today's Dec 15 update, "Made an update to ensure that the “Legend Slayer” achievement unlocks when prerequisites are met." So hopefully it's easier to unlock now.
Posted by MathGuy42 on 16 Dec 14 at 00:35
MathGuy42In the H2 PC version's Hired Gun, you could get the achievement by killing yourself in the red beam on Uplift, assuming you already had the Legend achievement. I'm curious if anyone else has tried this.
Posted by MathGuy42 on 16 Dec 14 at 16:10
Strategy OneThats halarius, I doubt it though.

Phenom1 T SMITHIf only people didn't suck and were capable of actually completing H2...
Posted by Phenom1 T SMITH on 18 Dec 14 at 14:19
Strategy One@Phenom1 T SMITH if you mean people online that don't have it, then they don't all care about completing it and just want to play online. If you mean me? I haven't done it yet I am waiting as I state in my solution. IT really isn't hard at all, solo can be difficult though if you don't know what you are doing.

snakeeyes367I've beat Halo 2 on legendary - anyone want to get/give this achievement should message me. thanks! snakeeyes367

LambsteinPlaying Halo Championships playlist, with a boosting partner (my 4 golds vs his 4 golds) and as we are shooting the ice down on each other for environmental medals, my SECONDARY account gets the chievo as it betrays my PRIMARY account as the ice falls, which has of course beaten Halo 2 on legendary. I still don't have it and I have meleed my boosting partner on the same map, in several games. Seems kind of glitchy to me.
Posted by Lambstein on 20 Jun 15 at 20:59
Strategy OneWouldn't surprise me.
