Halo 3: ODST (Assistance with achievements & Guide)

 I made this thread so that people don' really have to make extra threads. I will also be happy to help with anyone if they need help with certain achievements. Also, I will be adding in the post some things on how to unlock certain thins on ODST.


Also I will post on how to get the achievement if people don't know how to get them.


  • Easy ODST Vidmaster Challenge: Classic Achievement

    On Uplift Reserve, at the first Warthog Area, enter a Hog and give a soldier in the passenger seat your Spartan Laser. Make sure you have a gunner as well and, with some clever driving, you can get though the level without firing a shot! You may die as many times as you want. 


  • Vidmaster Challenge: Deja Vu:

              "Complete Coastal Highway on 4-player Legendary LIVE co-op, with the Iron skull on and without using Warthogs or Scorpion Tanks." 


  • Vidmaster Challenge: Endure: 

              "In Firefight, on any mission, pass the 4th set on 4-player Heroic LIVE co-op."

Halo 3: ODST Recon Armor

Road to Recon!

NOTE: Recon Armor in Halo 3 multiplayer is an exclusive handout available only to a select few, but with ODST it's become a badge of honor that dedicated Halo fanatics can unlock for themselves. There are seven Achievements that must be earned—three in ODST, and four in the original Halo 3 before you can head over to Bungie.net to get a download code. These are those seven Achievements.

Halo 3 Achievements
Vidmaster Challenge: Annual - Complete Halo on 4-player Legendary LIVE co-op, with Iron, and everyone in Ghosts.
Vidmaster Challenge: Lightswitch - Get the rank of Lieutenant in any playlist in the new EXP progression system.
Vidmaster Challenge: 7 on 7 - Entered into a ranked or social playlist with 7 EXP on the 7th of the month.
Vidmaster Challenge: Brainpan - Find all the hidden skulls on the Mythic maps.

Halo 3: ODST Achievements
Vidmaster Challenge: Classic - Finish any level solo on Legendary, on LIVE, with no shots fired or grenades thrown.
Vidmaster Challenge: Endure - In Firefight, on any mission, pass the 4th Set on 4-player Heroic LIVE co-op.
Vidmaster Challenge: Deja Vu - Complete Highway on 4-player Legendary LIVE co-op with Iron, and no 'Hog or Scorpion.

I still need ODST on Legendary -- wouldn't mind knocking this out on CO-OP


After the 'purge' on the Vidmaster list I should have more free time to help people with campaigns and random achievements - my speciality. I enjoy it because its different every time you play the same level with someone different.

dont know if you guys are still helping anyone..but i need about 7 FF's. i can mostly play nights..on weekends..central time. gamertag xnewb0rnzx..either reply to this forum..or send me a message, thanks.

Hello, if by chance anyone still need help for firefight or campaign i would gladly join for the time being. For a odd reason Im a addicts for co-op game and i would like to find out how many runs till i get sick of this game(still enjoy the story after 10+ time so far tho haha). Normally online morning till afternoon on week days and all day weekend US time, Just send a message beforehand saying time. Don't mind 2 player co-op anytime just that only for endure and Deja Vu that i can only join during weekends.

hehe thissounds like a "GUNS for HIRE"  post!  what happened to just playing for FUN?!?!   ;o)

Unfortunately as you'll soon learn if you want to have REAL fun you have to organize it a bit first, all it takes is a FR and a loose arrangement and you can get hours of fun out of this and any other game.
