Why Do This To Yourself?

  • Halo: Reach: Complete the Halo: Reach LASO Campaign playlist.

  • LASO videos posted to each section that will help you.
  • Go into a custom game with a Sniper and put some scotch tape marked with your own personal artificial crosshair. If you have classic crosshairs either put down another piece of tape or change the settings so when you zoom in and out your artificial crosshair is still aiming at the same spot on your screen.
  • The plasma pistol will be your best friend due to the Tilt skull. It will deplete Elite’s shields faster than normal, allowing for a quick head-shot followup.

Full “LAASO”

Yes, SLASO (Solo Legendary All Skulls On) is still possible on PC. I completed it Dec 8th and these videos on this guide helped me a ton. Though there will be slight variation from their speed runs compared to your run e.g. enemies not in the same position, seeming to die faster, being shot at the same positions the speed runners didn’t get shot at, etc.. It is still possible, and very “fun”!

Mission 1 – Noble Actual + Mission 11 – Epilogue (Both “Cutscenes”)

  • Step 1. Best to complete these missions with Legendary, all skulls on for LASO
  • Step 2. And then do it again, but with a friend for those co-op fillers!

Classic Completion

You won’t be able to do “Classic Completion” AND “Did You Major in Marine Bio?” on the same run! Since “Did You Major in Marine Bio?” requires Jetpack usage. Start on the last checkpoint when you re-run to save time instead of the other way around!

Run through the hole in the wall, and right at the edge of the hole, face left toward the switch. Hit it and run back.

Left Behind

  • Halo: Reach: Achieve a score of 30,000 points on Lone Wolf.

One Final Firefight

  • Halo: Reach: Achieve a score of 150,000 points on Lone Wolf.

Any difficulty. PC is currently broken as XBOX give about 10x more experience. If you still want to try: Group with a full party, turn the skulls on that you want (I recommends everything) and grind with a comfortable difficulty for 45 Minutes – 1 Hour. Elite assassinations are the fastest way to kill them but be aware of the golden elites with swords. They are able to take you out quick.The Wraith that is out of bounds can be hi-jacked if you’re able to shoot the gunner, get in the gunner seat (which makes the driver get out), and then drive the vehicle back into the playable zone). Be aware of the map boundary if you have the Skull “Blind” on, the count down will catch you by surprise.

What About Bob?

  • Halo: Reach: Find and eliminate one of the hidden Ranger Commander Elites.

Any difficulty. Thunderstorm skull on.
