Been a year since I started this.

Weekly campaign challenges for 05/26 thru 06/01:

He is Made of Iron (4,000 XP) -- complete any campaign mission on Heroic or higher difficulty with the Iron skull.

Still Alone in the Dark (5,500 XP) -- complete the Midnight mission solo on Legendary difficulty.

The first one is easy, the second one is a pain in the ass.

Weekly campaign challenges for the week of 06/09 thru 06/15:

He is Made of Iron (4,600 XP) - complete any campaign mission on Heroic or higher difficulty with the Iron skull.

Pinball (4,200 XP) - complete any campaign mission on Heroic or higher difficulty with the Tilt skull.

Obviously one can complete both challenges in one mission run by setting difficulty to Heroic and turning on the Iron and Tilt skulls.  Not having much to do today, I recorded and appended 3 different missions for this week's walk thru - Forerunner (easy), Reclaimer (easier, starting at 18:43), and Shutdown (easiest, starting at 34:06).  The video is below:

Thanks for doing the Reach Nightfall LASO challenge. I've only ever done a couple of the Reach missions SLASO. While I have my Flawless Cowboy commendation Onyx Max, I don't really have the patience for SLASO. I bow to those who make it look easy. MIN

This week's walk thru videos are the last I will do for Halo 4 (unless MCC motivates me).  The viewership for these is very limited (2 views for each as of today for this week's videos) which indicates total apathy towards the Halo 4 campaign.  Ironically the few walk thru videos I have created for Halo Reach recently have recorded a much larger number of views so if I see a challenge or something interesting to do in Reach (or H3, or ODST) I will post it here.  For example this week's Reach weekly challenge is:

Co-Op Dash (10,000 XP) - complete any campaign mission co-op in 9 minutes or less.  The video below shows how to easily do this on Nightfall alone with a guest controller activated.

"Old N Achy here..." Is how some of my favorite video clips start.

Thank you for doing these, your campaign runs and shortcuts helped make Halo 4 more fun for me. I watched that Midnight Solo Legendary clip many times. I'll be watching for what you choose to do next. Nice Work and Thanks!

Thanks Achy.. My daughter and I did the last 2 weekly challenges (LASO & <9 minute) coop in Reach, on Nightfall. I watched your Reach videos. About a year ago, daughter and I did Heroic Nightfall in 4:55. She's good at jumping through the gate.

After 2 years of on and off frustration I finally conquered Halo Reach Long Night of Solace on Mythic SLASO (solo, legendary, all skulls on, no deaths, no save and quits) to complete all Reach missions on Mythic SLASO:

Awesome! Picture me bowing. Wish I had the patience and skill for it...

Long Night of Solace is a tough one SLASO. My daughter and I have done it LASO coop splitscreen. I'm usually the sacrificial lamb for the hard parts so she can get through it without dying. The last time though, she got trapped by a couple tough elites in the Corvette's gun room (I ran past them, got a checkpoint and the door wouldn't open for me when I came back), so I completed the mission alone. Discovering how to access the Pelican chin turret makes the last part a lot easier.

For all those masochists out there, this week's weekly campaign challenge in Reach is Long Night of Solace: LASO which requires completing LNOS on Legendary difficulty with all skulls on except Blind.  I don't know whether having Blind turned off makes the mission much easier, but after completing this Mythic SLASO last week for the first time in 2 years of trying, I decided to do it again for the challenge, and got thru it on the first try with no deaths --
