For anyone interested in doing this solo. Just verified this method works (all in all took me about 15 minutes of working this based on the video)

RoguexCanadianmake sure you are standing on it, doing it while crouched will kill you

The skull didn't show up on my collected screen until I entered in the pre-order code I got from GameStop. I did some digging around on the Halo Waypoint forums, not sure if it helps but

JoKeRs ObLiViOnThank you. I failed way to much grenade jumping. Btw addition is I had to jump to get above the ceiling to get to where the skull was or I'd fall back down.

olanmillsI did this with a grenade jump when Halo CEA first came out and it sucked. It took me a lot of tries, so I was happy to see this method.

This also took me several tries, but I got it. Obviously, one of the great benefits with this method is that you don't die if you fail, so it's easy to try again.

I can confirm that you can unlock this Achievement with the Bandana skull on (yes,in Halo: MCC you can activate the skulls regardless of whether or not you've collected them), even though the game warns you that Achievements won't unlock with 0x multiplier skulls on, that warning actually only applies to certain kinds of Achievements (namely the par time, par score, and level completion ones).

Having the Bandana skull on helps so that if you fail, you can throw out more grenades to flip the warthog. I followed the instructions several times, only to pop up part way through the ceiling, but not fully.

Also, it would've been helpful if the guy showed how to get the warthog up into the center of the island in the first place. It's not too difficult, but what I did was drive the warthog forward to the left side of the tree that blocks the path up into the center of the island. As you drive forward, the warthog will begin to flip sideways so that the bottom of it is facing the tree trunk. This is bad because you'll fall out and then the warthog will be pushed back. So what I did is that as you are driving and the warthog starts to roll, turn the wheels towards the right. The warthog will continue to turn and flip over, ejecting you from the driver's seat, but this time it will flip over onto the other side of the tree trunk and into the path. Just flip the warthog back upright and you can drive on in. There isn't really any other difficult parts, other than reversing over the purple boxes, as shown in the video.

TrypWyre11Holy crap that was awesome. This was a way better alternative to all those grenade jump attempts.

Lege vaastried it dozens of times but it just will not unlock, most annoying skull ever.

DemianIt still works you just need to get the warthog back wheel directly below as shown in the video, flip it as shown, BUT ALSO melee it to the exact position or it will not work

Julz D 01Demian is right.

Tupper29Dat Jabroni also mentions to press X in the video when you flip the warthog. He means to jump by pressing A, but thumbs up for a great solution to grenade jumping.

CovetousSole4Appears this may not work with recent updates. I got the warthog into position and just kept hitting my head on the ceiling and knocking me down.cry

A1exRDMy method: grenade jump with Boom skull & one of the overshields from the tower ledge. Twice the power = twice as easy!
Posted by A1exRD on 09 Feb at 23:46
TheOneRedSmurfThe warthog part in the video works flawlessly. Just did it myself (2/15/2020) and the exact way its done is you get between the flipped warthog and the roof and when you push X it flips the warthog pushing you through the roof. I don't think you even need to push A to jump. You can maybe it helps. But it is just the warthog pushing you through the roof.

thee masterDJIs there a way to do it in co-op?
Posted by thee masterDJ on 17 Feb at 00:45
KanchanaburiThe important part that I didn't listen to until after several minutes of trying was
after getting on the flipped warthog, press RB, X and then A to jump towards the skull
I had to press it twice to get enough height to get the skull. Remember, in Halo CE you don't have to pick it up with RB, you just need to move through it to pick it up.

TarvuUse bandana and sputnik skull, pick up an overshield for a grenade jump.
