This is not so much a solution but to help clear up the confusion about this achievement. THIS DOES NOT HAVE ANYTHING TO DO WITH SPARTAN OPS! All you have to do is go to this specific achievement listed under "Options and Career" then go to "Career" and finally "Achievements". You can go to any specific achievement you want and click the "A" button and it will setup the game accordingly for any achievement. When you do this for this achievement it sets the game up in either LASO playlist or campaign(can't remember for sure) but it DOES NOT have anything to do with Spartan Ops. For me it setup a LASO match on Pillar of Autumn, but obviously this can be done on any mission, it just sets up the easiest and first possible option for the achievement. My guess is the people that are claiming this unlocked for them in Spartan Ops when they were doing the "Legendary" glitch is that those people had already done a mission of LASO and the game needed to record that they had the new title update DLC, so it needed an achievement from that DLC to pop to recognize they had the credentials already toward the LASO achievement. Kind of like the other achievements for Title Update 2 that you have to have so many of a certain medal in multiplayer games. All your progress toward them achievements carries over from what you had already done prior to the new update, but in order for the achievement counters to register that you have progress, the achievement app needed to see that you have the new title update, so another achievement needed to pop to get to that progress. I hope this clears up the confusion

Jennitiger1138 I can confirm that clicking on the achievement in the in game tracker and letting it take you to a lobby with the skulls and level set, it seems to go straight to Pillar of Autumn regardless from which achievement link you go from (a campaign lobby not a playlist one) but you can then change the level, we picked Assault on the Control Room and used the drop of the bridge skip, achievement unlocked at the start of the next level.

IXI FalcoN If you're still stuck on Done! Unlocking, just run any mission on LASO and it will pop. SC on Halo 1 is piss easy, just watch a speed run for the best way, it's the same strategy on LASO.

Honz Brix Usually when I have an achievement that it is "Done!Unlocking" all I have to do is wait until the games synch's up with the achievement app. Sometimes when I load the game up it will say synchronizing or it will just pop randomly after a few days. Keep the faith everyone. They will pop eventually

ThePaleHorseman I can confirm what falcon said. I just went through another laso mission and it unlocked right away. So if you had already met the requirement of beating a mission before the update and achievement was released and it's stuck on the done! Unlocking... like mine was, just do another laso mission and it should unlock.

Serious X Devil Mines been stuck at done unlocking since before Christmas... i even speed-run through "floodgate" and nothing happens and all the skulls was on, i've even done LASO Halo 3 so this should have popped when the update first released.

ukBp Roy I too am stuck at done unlocking. I already did the LASOs before this achievement came out, and have indeed played through 2 separate missions on LASO since to try and unlock it. No joy, this game is the gift that keeps on giving.
