6th July
6th August
6th September
6th October
6th November
6th December

Theses are the days you can get this Achievement.

Now to unlock this Achievement all you need to do is start up Halo: The Master Chief Collection. Click cn_A on "CAMPAIGNS" PRESS cn_right OVER TO HALO 4. Press cn_A. NOW if you have a mission in progress you can just click RESUME but if you don't you can click "MISSIONS" and PICK any MISSION you want. This can also be unlocked on "PROLOGUE" now this Achievement can be unlocked on ANY DIFFICULTY.
You can also do this in a custom game instead of starting the Halo 4 campaign, thank you JAB00TY for letting us know! :)

Side note; if you are working towards some Spartan Ops achievements playing any one of chapters counts for this achievement. Makes since as Spartan Ops launched as part of Halo 4. - The Dawn of Don

EaglesFan520this guide is not clear at all. What am I supposed to do again?

WOW DYLANGo to Halo 4 on the Campaigns list and start any mission on the 6th of any month.
Start the mission and the Achievement will pop.

I'm sorry Sir that I have made this guide unclear to you. Sorry for any inconvenience, have a good day :).

WOW DYLANThank you The Dawn of Don I will add this into the solution and credit you! Thank you very much for your feedback to make this solution even better and to help more people understand of different ways of unlocking this achievement! :)

MajimaActualI'll upvote this but I really really recommend that you mention you can do this in a custom match in the guide (instead of just in the comments here).

This will help people like myself who just started MCC avoid Halo 4 spoilers.

I.E. right now I'm at the Silent Cartogropher level in Halo 1, but I want to get this achievement without having to see a cutscene or accidentally spoil something in Halo 4.

WOW DYLANHello OdadjianActual,

I have mentioned this in the guide above I gave credit to JAB00TY for pointing that out for me.
I will now bold it so it now stands out more clearer. But thank you for your feedback it makes the solution even better :).

iiAssassinXxiiI just started a custom game and it unlocked as soon as the match started. That’s probably the best way to do it.

MrKoolxDoodmissing these is so annoying

iiAssassinXxiiMrKoolxDood, why don’t you set a reminder on your phone for them? Would help you remember when to do them.

MadMosh666TrueAchievements will give you a 3 day warning of any date related achievements, though it could be a subscriber only feature.

iagoBeware that using Quick Resume on a Series S|X messes with this achievement, I had to close the game, restart and load into the campaign again for it to pop.

Scrib DeathI let my paid subscription to TA lapse, but I still get the three-day warnings for date achievements sent to me, to answer that question.
