Halo CE: "Madrigal Debut" Achievement Broken!?

You can obtain this Achievement by playing the level “Assault on the Control Room” on Halo Combat Evolved and by either finding it at the start of the level OR by going to the main location near the end of the level by getting a Banshee and flying up to it. The music plays, but no achievement. Just to double/triple check, I went around killing EVERY enemy in the area and even went down the path where you have to go when you were unable to get a banshee and instead have to walk and still - no achievement. Doesn’t matter the difficulty, skulls you have on or even the platform - it just will not unlock. I play both on Steam AND on Xbox and it makes no difference. My brother who ONLY plays it on Xbox also cant get it.

I tried to get this achievement with a completely different and NEW profile and the achievement is STILL not unlocking - I am starting to think that this might be due to the recent season 7 update that was released that had some updates for Halo CE (Combat Evolved). This is further supported on any YouTube video you check for this achievement and then checking the most recent comments for them, with countless people saying that they could not get it (YT Link: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bFK5RPmAEcI - AND - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=G-b96AhVJk8). I also searched up the guide for this achievement on truachievements.com and it also has a person who recently posted saying that they couldn’t get the achievement to appear. It definitely feels that this achievement is broken and isn’t just me having this issue (I have been trying to tell people to report this issue on here/Halo support).

I am trying to get EVERY achievement for Halo MCC before Halo Infinite comes out (currently at 673/700 achievements) and this is the ONLY one that has been impossible to get. For anyone who hasn’t got it yet - does it work for you? If not, please report it so that it gets fixed! (https://support.halowaypoint.com)

I recommend heading over to https://aka.ms/HaloSupport for further assistance. Please review the latest known issues and submit a ticket if your issue is not listed.


yep. broken. just put in a ticket!

I’ve also been having this issue with this achievement. Just tried it again, music plays but no achievement. I’ve already submitted a ticket and they said they’re working on it but I won’t hold my breath. There are reports of other achievements being similarly bugged going back years that they never fixed that require the player jumping through flaming hoops to force them to pop

It’s bugged, a friend is about to have every achievement but Madrigal. He’s done every possible method of troubleshoot, i think it’s just completely broken rn

I would submit a ticket. It is most definitely the season 7 update that made the achievement broken. :frowning:

The achievement doesnt work

Same here, I’m doing the same thing and it’s not working, let’s just hope they fix it in season 8…

This brings great sadness, as I have been Achievement hunting. Better luck in season 8 I guess

Yep I am having the same issue. One of the last achievements I need for the campaign as well.

Its still broken for me

This Is also happening for the halo 3 odst music que as well.

It’s now fixed as of the latest patch
