> Ever since Halo 3, I have been trying to defeat the campaigns on legendary, from beginning to end, without dying once. The idea is to complete the missions like Master Chief (who obviously didn’t die). All skulls are off and you are allowed to save the game but if you die you have to start over from the first mission.
> In Halo 3 the farthest I got was the end of the ark. In Reach (Noble 6 run) I made it to the end of pillar of autumn. I was soooo close in Reach but a plasma grenade launcher brute got me when I choked and missed a snipe. In Halo 4 I have made it to the middle of shutdown.
> Obviously this challenge is not as difficult as what Master Chief had to face because Master Chief had to fight through very intelligent enemies where as we have to face stupid ai. But I don’t use skulls because they create challenges Master Chief wouldn’t face.
> This run is MUCH more difficult than the mythic run. I have played the campaign at least 20 times trying to complete the Master Chief run in every Halo game from Halo 3.
> I’m thinking maybe if I post this, the Master Chief run could become a popular alternative to the Mythic run.
> I don’t think anyone has ever completed this run in any Halo game. I am very skilled at this game but I have given up on trying to complete it in Halo 4. Maybe Halo 5 will work out for me.
> I challenge anyone to complete the Master Chief run. I am confident in my skill that no one will complete it but I would love it if someone did!
Hello there OP good to see that what my clan has been doing for years now is becoming in effect. I have tired to spread the word around in giving this challenge it it really gives you a feeling of. NO i won’t do this or I have to do that.
I have to say LASO is easier. LASO has you thinking more but not to the point where your life is MC’s. So my record of doing is started back in Halo 2. Around 2005 or early 2006.
Than i did Halo CE and 3, skipped wars because the game is just a bum rush simulator if you ask me. Me and my friends did ODST together. We changed it for that one because an ODST relies on his squad not just one singular person. Halo Reach completed it after very stressful skirmishers. Halo 4 in progress. Each Halo i had one problem that still bugs me.
Letting A.I. die to save myself. At times it is very difficult for some reason to let them die, but you know that if you don’t you are put into jeopardy. You can save a few if you are lucky but, if you ask me i seem to of cared far more for the assistance of the A.I. when i first did this. Looking at one as if they were a true person. Feeling sad over the ones that i let die, and that i didn’t have no more than a few seconds to grieve before the battle would start again. We had to keep moving on otherwise more would be like him and possibly me.
Also one thing that i feel you must do is… use MC as iconic as he is. Do sort of what you feel he would do. Reach you had more freedom because Noble 6 was just here to get the job done but at the same time heroing up. JD as well, but tring to use what made the person more iconic.
MC-Power house, prefers automatic human weapons and not leaving people behind. ( but is still a master of every weapon. Chooses the AR over other weapons.
Noble 6-Get rid of the problem so quick that they won’t even know they are dead. ( act fast, and you will be able to get through your foes.)
Thel-Sword, Sword, Sword and never leave men behind.
J.D.-Use cover like never before and watch the sky for grenades.
Well these are my tips to those who wish to try this in ever Halo game besides wars, and Spartan Assault. SA is just because i haven’t played it.
Also a tip for Halo 4 is trick your foes. Every Halo but 4 the A.I. will try to map out what you do before you do it. Halo 4 they just look forward. It is far to easy but shutdown keeps shutting me down. Little to no cover and no places to flank. Sort of a difficulty spike.
One thing that you have to do to make it somewhat fair. Try to forget all the ambushes. Let them slip your mind otherwise it is cheating.
