Halo Reach Weekly Challenge & Commentary – w/c 19th March

This week’s challenge is below, click Read More to view the commentary:

Co-op Dash – Clear any Campaign mission on Heroic, in co-op, in 15 minutes or less – 15343 cR

Commentary follows after the break…

I wish they’d change the title of this challenge. It really should be ‘The Forklift Trick’. And 15 minutes is very generous, it can be done in about 6.

As a guide to the Nightfall speed run I’ve picked this video off Youtube randomly, but there are hundreds like it. In fact we have further options and details on the time we did it in LASO on this Weekly Challenge page and comments. There are other levels you may be more familiar with, but honestly, you can do this in 5-6 minutes with minimal stress.

One key point is when you do it in Co-op, you can run through together right up to the valley between the pump station and the pylon. At that point pick JUST ONE person to go through and take out the guys on the bridge, then use the forklift to get through the gate and run the rest. If you both go it will massively increase the chances of you being fired upon and the enemies spawning behind the gate.

When you are glitching through the key is to get the Forklift as close as it can to the gate, lined up straight, and with your Spartan getting out at the centre of the doors. If you can get that right it should be simple to get through.

Other than that, for 15 minutes at most that’s a pretty healthy reward!

There was a lot of talk last time we saw this about other missions. With 15 minutes instead of 9 there are more options. Winter Contingency is do-able I think, and if you split your resources correctly on ONI: Sword Base it’s definitely achievable (mad props to John who managed to do it last time on Sword Base in 8:57!!).

    Nightfall is the clear answer here. however if you dont know how to do the forklift trick, heres a tip. Take the forklift and drive up to the gate so that the your spartan lines up with the middle of the gate. Also make sure that the other players in the game do not cross the bridge or it will spawn enemies on the other side of the bridge. Once you are lined up, get out, if you do not end up on the other side of the gate, then just keep trying. IF you cannot do this, Winter contingency.

    Ive done this one a ton. Theres a video on my fileshare of me doing it in 4 min even. Just look up my gt on bungie.net and check it out if you need to.

  3. John says:

    i’ve just done that in winter contigency in 12 minutes just by running on the right side all the time ;D

  4. JThomas says:

    Don’t get me wrong, I love the easy credits but I was hoping that there would be a unique weekly that we haven’t seen yet. Ah well, only means more focus on March Madness baby!

  5. Quinn says:

    You’d think that they’d ramp this up instead of practically giving these credits away.
    Not that I’m complaining.

  6. Dan says:

    I set a personal record today for the coop dash on nightfall, around 5 minutes. The forklift trick worked after just 3 or 4 attempts. Lined it up, it didn’t work 3 times, drove closer and in I got. The lag was something else though. My game says 6 minutes because I kept dying from insane lag at the start of the level.

  7. Raymondo says:

    You got killed by the sleeping grunts, didn’t you?

    • Dan says:

      That’s right smart ass, I was running past and they jumped on my back and assassinated me. O_o

  8. Paul says:

    I’ve been looking at the HighSpeedHalo.net website and may try something different this week. Exodus, or Tip Of The Spear maybe.

  9. Craig says:

    can anyone do this with me, message me through xbox live; GT: Quillian86

    • Frank says:

      can u use a guest/second controller

      • yes you can use a second controller.
        just did it. every time i try to party up for any coop campaign anything over Live, it’s laggy, because my internet connection sucks.

        i think Coop Dash can be completed so long as you are connected to Live when you do it, and not necessarily that it’s coop OVER Live.

        hope this helps…
