Mission: Uplift Reserve
Difficulty: Legendary

This requires you to not use any weapons at all which includes any held weapons, the ghost's blue bullets and the warthog's horn. It is ok to use the ghost's boost or warthog's powerslide!

As you spawn, head up the narrow walkway towards the flipped warthog! Get inside, watch out for the choppers, and head for the entrance to the next area. Dodge the 2 wraiths and other enemies along the way. After getting past the 2nd wraith, you'll want to switch into the ghost that is sitting on a rock before the tunnel entrance. Feel free to also pick up the health kit if necessary.

Now you'll just be using the ghost to boost by enemies and avoid as much fire as possible. Just boost your way through the entire level and keep your eye on choppers as they will cause you the most damage. When finding a new ghost, feel free to switch to it, and always pick up health kits if you aren't at 100% health before entering a new area.

It is totally ok if you die for this achievement, and restart at your previous checkpoint. You can take your time learning enemy patterns if you need to.

If you follow this exact method, you can also unlock the following achievements at the same time:

Shadow 00 FoxThumbs down for saying Choppers cause the most damage.. every single time I've done this mission it's been the turrets...

BrutalGuitarSorry Shadow 00 Fox but I disagree. Chopper can do more damage. If they drive into you it only takes one hit to kill you no matter the condition of your vehicle or health. Turrets take multiple shots. The chopper guns don't do much. It's the front of the vehicle the does. That's probably what Maka91 meant.

Shadow 00 FoxHmm... that's IF you let the Chopper hit you. I have yet to be hit by a Chopper in that mission I think. smile

PhantomEwanJust a side note. If you save and quit during the last checkpoint, it won't give you the achievement. Did it 3 times.

Jackey Boy 217Just did this, but achievement didn't pop, came here to see what I missed and I didn't know the warthogs horn counted as a weapon -_- I blew it to get a marine in the passenger seat. What a piss take.

The Manic MooseHaha this is hilarious. I can’t even get past the first two wraiths, or the warthog gets stuck before I’ve even moved! So much luck

lightsup55@The Manic Moose, I've got more bad news for you. This same achievement also exists in the original Xbox 360 release (Vidmaster Challenge: Classic).

R3f1CuLNo clue why this stupid ach isn't unlocking. 4 times now and nothing. Totally not frustrating at all. Nope not even mad...

JLNlNJAOh god dammit. So i don't get the achievement because I used the warthog horn? This sucks ass. Now i have to do it again

SoHungeeThis can be done with the Acrophobia skull turned on as well (although, this does disable the "Par" achievements). Took me a few tries, mainly because I kept running into trees or a cliff and dying... watch your altitude and more or less follow the path, and its pretty quick/easy

Nit0rinI died a lot and got it.
