Tip Of The Week

You Knew It Was Coming: The final campaign mission on the most freakishly hard difficulty setting. We’re ready; how ’bout you??

As with most of the LASO Challenges, we have our standard warning — you’re probably never going to do this alone, and if you can handle a Legendary level by yourself without dying, you don’t need any advice from HRD. So, while it’s true that the game amps up the difficulty for more players in Co-op mode, you’ll want the three more guns at your side; otherwise, it’ll just be a very long day of level Reloads.

OK then. The mission’s much too long for a detailed walkthrough here, so just as we did with the previous Campaign missions we’re going to turn the microphone over to the Mythic Master — the jacket-strapped lunatic who invented the SLASO runs, Tyrant himself — and his in-depth guide posted on Halo.Bungie.Org, where the HRD Challenge Report written by Associate Editor Foxman FX appears each day.

Meanwhile, the LASO and L.D. (Legendary Difficulty) Challenges have cycled into the regular rotation so often that we’ve gone and created a permanent standing page of all of our standard strategies for tackling the game on its hardest setting, no matter which Challenge or part of the Campaign. Check it out!

And, likewise, make sure to check out our Video Of the Week, which features a full-on Mythic runthrough of the mission, done solo and with the Blind Skull on too. It’s a bit long — about 55 minutes — but well worth the watch if you get frustrated. Special Thanks to SHADOWSTRIKE1 for uploading his crazy accomplishment.
