Be advised this is for the Halo CE campaign only. The other campaigns werent fully tested and its possible those have skulls that will null this 'loophole'.

This is not as much of a solution as a general tip. If you complete the campaign on any difficulty first, you can get mission/campaign completion achievements on higher difficulties with some of the more helpful skulls activated (mainly Bandana, Boom, and Grunt Funeral) by going back to the mission tab on the main menu. They do not pop as you beat the mission like they do when you do not have those skulls active but after you finish any number of missions and go back to the missions tab, they will start going off at that point.

This works for all difficulty levels so its suggested that you first complete the campaign on easy then do legendary next. With those skulls on the legendary campaign (which in my opinion is the most frustrating of all four games) is a lot more tolerable.

evil terrorrI removed my negatieve feedback because this still works but the solution is not entirely accurate. None of the achievements pop when you play with these skulls from the start without ever beaten the campaign first. If you complete the campaign first on any difficulty without the infinite ammo skull than this solution works. I played my first play through on legendary with the infinite ammo skull and I did not receive any achievement for completing the levels and completing the game on legendary by checking the missions tab. But I got this to work after I completed the campaign on easy without the infinite ammo and then checked the mission tab and only then did they unlock for me. So still thumbs down for me until this solution has been rewritten

GoGoActionTeamThat has to be something that they have patched because this worked for the first time for me. I hate Halo CE on legendary so I had them on from the jump. I will change it though...theres not really any way I can retest the method. If anyone happens to read this and test it out, please let me know.

AndrEvili was doing Legendary on first run. No skulls for the first 2 levels, bandana skull enable for the 3 next lvl, completion for this achievement was at 2 of 10....
Then i played with my son on normal difficulty with no skulls and i am now 5 of 10 completion on legendary.

ryaN 299I have completion in the mission tab for doing the levels on legendary with the skulls on, but achievements aren't unlocking for beating the levels.

JPS BaccaI don't think this works anymore as i have completed the first 6 missions on legendary with bandana on and no level completion achievement must of been patched
