In this guide I will be showing you how to get the “Starved For Shields” achievement in Halo 2.
This achievement requires you to complete a mission on Halo 2 with the Streaking Skull active on Heroic or Legendary.
The Streaking Skull was introduced in Halo 2: Anniversary, and it causes the player’s shields to constantly deplete. But your shield slowly recharges after each kill.
No other skulls may be active while going for this achievement, only Streaking.
There are a few methods for this achievement.
1. Method one: Heretic
- The first method is the easiest and most simple way to get this achievement. Activate the Streaking Skull and load up The Heretic on Legendary, skip/watch the cut scene and the achievement is yours (working as of March 4th 2021).
If Heretic doesn’t work…
2. Method two: Armory
- All you have to do is complete basic training and follow Johnson to the bridge. Easy.
3. Method three: Co-Op
- If heretic doesn’t work and since Armory isn’t available in co-op, Outskirts is a great map if you are going for this achievement with a friend. Simply skip the first 3 firefights by running along the rooftops, and then in the second half drive past the encounters in the warthog.
