Yes, that approach would definitely work, but he will need to find someone with the saves.AshamanND wrote:My buddy TheGrandLunar is in the middle of the Saga playlist (normal) looking for the Lifestory achievement.Cizlin wrote:Since that playlist has the two solo missions right at the start, you can each do them Solo, then join back together for Cairo Station.

One idea I had is, when we get to one of those levels, we both spit off to "beat" those levels solo, which would advance the playlist 1 level for each of us, then getting back together to do it together. You mentioned that you tried going back after finishing the campaign to do each solo, but did you try completing them solo before continuing to the next level together?
Also, did you post this in the Achievement Issue tracker thread?You only need to complete The Maw, The Heretic, and The Armory solo for them to register. Everything else should work on Co-op. If your playlist says you've completed all of the missions but hasn't registered the playlist as completed, then you just need to beat Halo 4's Epilogue mission in the playlist, either Solo or Co-op.FlopittyFlop wrote:Thank you for this. I had been running through the MCC lifestory playlist with a friend, then trying to solo the two missions I needed but that didn't help. Guess I will just have to do the whole playlist solo.
Unfortunately, we played through "The Maw" together on co-op and now he doesn't have credit for that or one of the cut scene missions.
Do we know if he can steal a checkpoint at the beginning of The Maw, play through that solo and the two cutscenes, and then steal a checkpoint back to where he currently is and continue on?
Alternatively, he could restart the playlist separate from you and Solo Speedrun his way to the missions in question (The Maw, The Heretic, and The Armory). So long as he beats those three missions on solo, he should receive credit. Then, after getting credit for the completion of those missions, he can join up on you to get back to where he originally was (since you've been playing through the playlist with him as well, you probably have the checkpoint for where he left off).
