[Locked] Information on Achievements and LASO Playlists

Achievements

We have included several fixes and updated details on earning achievements:

  • Warden – An additional check was put in place and description updated to include both Halo 2 Classic and Halo 2 Anniversary.
  • Explore the Floor – Description has been updated. This must be completed on Heroic difficulty or higher.
  • Monopolized, Devastating, and You’re Joking – last week we applied additional checks to ensure these triggered, and some players are still reporting that these are not unlocking. To earn these achievements, players do not have to complete all the missions in a single run through. An updated verification check to these is coming in a future update. If you meet the criteria for these achievements, they will trigger automatically when this verification check goes live. NOTE: These achievements only trigger on the main menu.
  • Lone Wolf Legend - Some players report that levels completed solo are being registered as co-op if the player quits and resumes the mission later. We are currently investigating issues players have seen with this achievement.
  • We are also investigating reports of save/resume functionality for both missions and playlists which can affect progress and achievement completion.
We understand that many of you have earned achievements that do not appear to have registered.

To verify the status of your achievements, please go through the following steps:
      1. Open up the achievements app on your Xbox One dashboard and open up the tab for Halo: The Master Chief Collection.
      2. Browse the list of unlocked achievements for any that you think should have triggered.
      3. If the status says “Done…unlocking”, the achievement and Gamerscore are pending and will be granted in the near future.
      4. We continue to monitor the status of these achievements and many of the ones in this state should be unlocking this week for players.
      5. If it seems like you should have earned an achievement and it is not stuck in the state above, please verify the following:
            • Certain skulls, such as Bandana, Envy, and Scarab are zero scoring skulls. That means you must complete the levels without these on to earn the achievement.
            If it seems like you have completed all the requirements for an achievement and the progress is showing less than 100 percent, cross reference your level completion, skull count, terminal count, etc. against your service record on Halo Waypoint.
                Some achievements will not show progress on the achievement app due to their technical implementation, such as
Mortardom
                  . Achievements like this are still tracking progress internally.
                  Here are some additional tips for earning achievements:
                  • All achievement descriptions include the game that it can be unlocked in. If no game is specified, it can be unlocked in any game.
                  • Additional details on achievement progress can be tracked via the achievements UI under Career & Options, sorted by game.
                  • For any achievement labeled as multiplayer, unless matchmaking is explicitly stated in the description, it can be earned in custom games as well.
                  • Most campaign achievements are can be earned in solo and co-op play.
LASO Playlists

                We have heard community feedback and reviewed LASO related achievements. As a result, we are going to a more classic set of skulls to use for these achievements that reflects what it means to have Legendary All Skulls On for each playlist. We look forward to seeing LASO enthusiasts conquer a gentler Halo 2 Anniversary in the near future.
                Here is the final list of skulls required for each LASO playlist:
