[Resolved] Spartan Ops Ep 9. Ch. 1 Crash

In “The Search for Halsey” spartan ops mission whether it be heroic or ledgendary, the game will crash every time the second wave of promethians spawn in while defending the turrets…PLEASE FIX 343!

Seems to be a common problem for a lot of players based on the number of posts about it. My guess is that the devs have heard about it and are fixing it. The team working on MCC right now is pretty responsive!

hey,

same problem here. no matter how many times i restart the game always crashes at the same point on legendary. doesn’t matter if i play slow or fast or use different setup with skulls.

From the most recent patch update notes.

Hopefully this is what they are referring to.

I just tried it again, hoping the update fixed it, but sadly it didn’t…

Well that’s just terrible.
I hope 343 continues to investigate this - as it will make an achievement unobtainable…

Amen sir!!

Going to migrate all the existing / open topics about this issue here to have a central reference for it (we really don’t need 8 topics about the same bug). This is the closest topic to the release of the latest update, so will work best as a base.

If the crash that 343 apparently fixed wasn’t the one that we thought would get fixed, what was it because thats the only chapter I have the issue with.

If this is an issue with every difficulty as opposed to just Legendary it’ll make a few of them unobtainable actually. I’m having the same bug happen every time as well.

I’m glad 343 keeps patching the MCC. This Spartan Ops bug is really bothering me, but the recent update did fix some other Spartan Ops crashes.

It was also really cool that they added the Blind skull to Halo 1. Adding skulls is a really cool avenue to expand the options in campaign!

I’ve managed to beat it on easy and normal, but heroic and legendary both crashed for me.

It seems to be an issue with the turrets. If a turret goes down at or after “they’re flanking you”, it crashes. On heroic and legendary, the crawlers start spawning with binary rifles which can do enough damage to destroy the turrets.

I tried making sure all turrets were up before the next wave spawned by avoiding killing any mobs until I had managed to bring them all back up. But the game crashed at “they’re flanking you” anyway.

On one run on heroic, I managed to get past “they’re flanking you” but as soon as a turret went down, just before the “activate” waypoint appeared, it crashed again (“Turret disabled but not destroyed, should be able to bring it back up again”).

I hope this helps the QA/Dev team find the bug!

Just did another 2 attempts on normal where I let them kill my turrets.

Attempt 1: Game didn’t crash, but I also didn’t see “They’re flanking you”

Attempt 2: I got the “They’re flanking you” text and a turret went down shortly afterwards - No crash

(I also learned that crawlers do spawn with binary rifles on normal)

The same thing is happening to me and I only need to beat this one OP to finish them all on solo legendary.

Until today it keeps crashing at the same point…

Same issue here tried reinstalling and im going to try a different console later in hopes of it be somewhat console specific? Idk im trying everything. Maybe add a checkpoint system for this level only for like right after crashing area as a temp solution until its fixed idk?

Having the same issue. Game keeps freezing as well. I think it’s pretty sad that a game that has been out for years still has these kind of issues. I’ve had so many issues with MCC, it literally changed my mind about buy any more halo games. It just has become so much of a turn off for me for some reason. I definitely have not been pleased with my MCC gameplay experience

Just want to note that this is now being tracked as a known issue:

I’ll be wait for a new patch. This shouldn’t happen but… What do you guys expect? This game is too expansive for be perfect. Bug are really the last problem if they continue to patch the game being here for us player. Be thankful sometimes…

Just tried to play through the level twice. At first I thought it was just a random crash and then the second time I googled it I came across this. Like everyone else said, my crash occurs shortly after I hear “They’re flanking you”. I’m trying to get the Smooth Operator achievement, so I am playing on Legendary. I’m glad its known, and I hope its fixed soon!
