Whats wrong with "If they came to hear me beg"?

OP dempsy40

I've been replaying Halo Reach today, got through all the missions and now i'm on Pillar of Autumn, i decided to try to do if they came to hear me beg. I don't know if i'm missing something but i sprint jump off, turn sprint off so the kill is dead reasonably high in the air and twice i've performed the stomp on the head assassination but the achievement hasn't unlocked. What the hell is going on?
I tried a few times and it didnt work. Mived onto the nightfall legendary option and that wasnt easy for me. Just decided to retry poa and i managed to get it. Guess its just a matter of trying a few times.
I just got it. After about 15 or So attempts. Just keep trying on that mission. It's where i got it back in 2010 lol..

try jumping off without sprint on legendary, could be affecting the fall damage.
That assassination doesn't work! I guess they thought it was cheap or something. You have to get an assassination on him using a knife.

i'm no expert i'll throw some ideas out, make your logged on xbox live, try turning scoring on/off, if you have skull on turing them off, try changing your storage options if you can.
i helped my brother a few days ago with this without any problems, if you want i'll set a labby up and i'll help you.
You need to turn off your sprint quickly after the jump as the spring negates fall damage. Also it it best if you manage to get the assassination right when you hear the crack of your shields dying when you hit the ground. It is a really crappy achievement you need to be like pixel perfect to get it. Just do it over and over, changing how you do it for like an hour or two strait.
So I was replaying the Reach campaign today and noticed I didn’t have this achievement unlocked either. So I loaded up Pillar of Autumn, and after around an hour or so of frustrating deaths off that damned cliff AND a few assassinations that somehow didn’t trigger the achievement, I finally managed to get an assassination and on the bottom of my screen the achievement popped up. Keep in mind I’m playing this on Xbox One, but regardless the achievement DID pop up on my screen. Then I go to check my achievement list and it isn’t there... it’s still locked. Unless if I have become schizophrenic or visually impaired over the past 24 hours and my eyes were seeing things when the achievement popped up right in front of me, then I can confirm 100% that this achievement is in fact glitched. Unfortunate to say the least lol
Well-known finicky achievement. When I got it back in 2011 or 2012, it took me a solid hour and landing the assassination multiple times to get the achievement to pop.

In summary - just keep trying.
Been trying for two hours NOT WORTH IT, gotten the assassinations, did with and without sprint, doesn't work! Don't even start to try it cause you'll just keep trying and trying and won't accomplish anything!!!!

Or you can quit complaining and just do it. It's a really fickle achievement. Some people can get it in a few attempts while it make take others a few hours of attempts to get it. I got it a long time ago and I didn't get it the first time. Hell, half of the time, the elite would move at the last second and I'd just hit the ground...or I'd even assassinate a grunt beside the elite. And even when I managed to assassinate the elite, it still took a couple of tries to get it.
From what I remember the achievement popped as soon the animation played was a ground assassination, never for an aerial.
I got it way back when. Maybe try on Legendary. i got it at the beginning of the last mission.
On Pillar of Autumn, i got it after maybe 17 tries. This achievement is a massive test of patience, at least the gamerscore pays off in the end..right?

Honestly, I feel like it's one of those achievements that could probably be worth a little more. But it is definitely one that at least feels rewarding once you get it.
