achievement "if they came to hear me beg&quot

Hi all,newby here,having a little trouble with the “if they came to hear me beg” achievement,basically iv done it exactly how you should as far as im aware (rooster teeth guide) and even performed the assassination some 6-7 times but still it doesnt unlock,has anyone else had similar problem?

Oh yes it is indeed a tricky one. The timing of releasing your Sprint at a few locations apparently is the key to executing it properly. But it could be cake not a key.

You can definitely get the achievement in Invasion in MP. Whether one can boost in a custom game or custom FF I do not know. I would guess that a regular FF match if you use a jetpack to get to your height you could do it.

It’s not campaign specific.

if They Came to Hear Me Beg
Performed an Assassination against an Elite to survive a fall that would’ve been fatal

I have had to try this plenty of times and so have many of my friends. Just keep trying, I usually wait for the elite to be right around the back of the truck on the last level. I hold the RB just when my feet hit the top of his head.

As I still need this one, it might be fun to load up Forge and see if I can get it to work there.

Try it on legendary worked for me that way

I did the achievement like this. I tried by watching the Elite down below on the Pillar of Autumn mission, but after about 15 minutes or so of trying and assassinating with no unlock (also a lot of death falls), I gave up and decided I was just going to run off the side. I sprinted, jumped off the side and when I was about 2 seconds away from hitting the ground I turned off sprint and fell right on the Elite for the assassination. Just keep trying. It’s a finicky achievement.

No worries from one newbie to another. I had to try this a lot more than 6-7 times. In fact after trying it for a while with no luck I had to go back to it later. It is mostly about patience and landing on the Elite just right.

Also you can’t just melee and knock him out while you land that will not activate the achievement. You have to land right on top of the Elite and hold down RB, at just the right moment, to actually assassinate, instead of pressing RB to melee. Anyway I add this detail only because I didn’t understand this at first and thought there was a glitch and it wasn’t giving me the achievement.

Well good luck with that, right now the bane in my Halo achievements is Wake Up, Buttercup. I just can’t seem to get that one.

I did this one without even knowing there was an achievement for it. I was blasting away and it popped up. I had to pause to see what I unlocked. This one was pretty easy for me (obviously). Here’s what I did. I just went in rockets blazing and got a good distance behind the Corvette while shooting at it’s escorts. Then I just moved in on it from behind and tossed rocket after rocket at the engines and then finished off the escorts and then you are done. Achievement unlocked. Just make sure you are on Heroic (no skulls other than IWBYD or birthday party) so it will be as easy as possible. Also, I like to play with scoring turned on so I can watch the multi kills and score go up. Try playing like that, Try to keep a visual kill streak going and rack up your score while you pwn that Corvette’s hiney. But really, just get way behind it and pluck off it’s escorts and launch a bunch of rockets at the engines - Good luck.

Hey thanks so much for this bit of info, I tried it like you mentioned and I got the achievement on the first try. How funny how that can work sometimes! I think that was my last campaign achievement now on to the remaining Firefight and Invasion achievements. :slight_smile:

Hey congratulations! Glad my tips could help you. :slight_smile:
Let’s hope the OP can get the achievement unlocked for “ITCTHMB” with the tips on this thread.

This achievement took me a while too. I got the assasination like 3 times and no achievement. i came back a week later and got it on the first try.

I spent HOURS working on this one with a friend of mine. Just constantly resetting the checkpoint and jumping off a cliff ad nauseum. The one time I actually managed to land on the elite and was assassinating him, my friend jumped on my head, pushing me off the elite!

Luckily I got it a few more tries later but I found that for me, it was just trial and error. Good luck!

Yeah. Boy, yeah! …it took me some 40+ tries to nail this one, on Pillar of Autumn.

> Yeah. Boy, yeah! …it took me some 40+ tries to nail this one, on Pillar of Autumn.

I’m still trying, 100’s of attempts later.

You are kidding me, right? Right!
I think that achievement is my #1 most frustrating achievement! xD

I don’t understand why people have problems with this achievement. I’ve done it 3 times, and my record is 3 attempts and max attempts was 9 before I got it.

Well, good luck to you. And good luck to everyone one who has tried 40+ times and still haven’t gotten it.

It’s ridiculous. But it will probably be the most appreciated achievement I’ll ever get.

Mine was “cross mappin’” I couldn’t get that achievement to unlock no matter how far away they were. Then finally on Paradiso with a Sniper and a DMR from the top of the map, I got it.

I agree, it took me ages to get Cross Mappin, alltho I think it was 'cause I never really tried. Once I tried I got it right away on Hemorage (hate that map, btw). I now have all achievements for Reach, 'cept for You Ate All The Chips, and A Monument To All Your Sins. And it annoys me that i will probably never get that last one… haha.

Multiple attempts to “Forge” this one failed last night.

I’m going to try that method one more time but on Spire in a custom Invasion game, then it’s back to jumping off of cliffs in PoA.
