Honestly for me Halo CE.
i dont think halo ce is that hard i find halo 2 coop is the hardest
Halo 2
To me the hardest campaign on legendary would be halo CE mostly because of the last few levels from the library up
Legendary: CE
Laso/Mythic: 2
It depends on how you define difficulty, I define low difficulty = fewer casualties without using shortcuts and just legendary. Halo MCC tracks campaign stats. I have only ever played on legendary, I have the lowest k/d ratio in that game compared to other campaigns. I have the highest in Halo CE, at least double compared to all other halo campaigns. By this measure Halo 2 is most difficult, snipers will drop you. The difficulty is not even remotely close.

The beginning of Gravemind is hard, but Delta Halo/Regret levels are not exactly a cake walk. Sniper alley in outskirts is tough and the part in Metropolis with like 8 jackal snipers that appear periodically is just aggravating. Oh you thought it was smart to get in the gauss warthog after the first past...bam autoaim sniper headshot. lol
As someone else mentioned cairo station can be a little difficult in the second covenant boarding area.

Halo 3, maybe the Ark could be the most difficult level, timing during the scarab part can be an issue. But that is relative because most of the campaign is rather easy. Cortana could be a little tough when the flood forms stick on the walls and fire down.

Halo CE, hmm....the ending of two betrayals can be hard depending on how events play out or how one approaches it. I mean just rushing the banshee is easy enough and that would be it. But approaching on ground and systematically killing everyone can be more difficult. The loading/landing bay in Truth and reconciliation, maybe? I mean even the library, the hardest part is not getting killed by carriers exploding loose grenades during parts when multiple flood waves arrive. lol

ODST is easy, Tsava Highway can be a little annoying because of the ghosts and Buck at turret.

Halo Reach...the beginning of Tip of Spear and the falcon part when arriving at the spire. New Alexandria can be a little difficult, approaching banshees can be a little of a problem. But I always seem to die in the final lone wolf level. :(

Halo 4 I think I probably find Reclaimer to be the most difficult. I always find myself having to destroy at least some ghosts with an AR. :D The banshee part in forerunner is usually difficult enough to give me a death or two. And if not careful, Battlewagons Prometheans/binary rifle crawlers can always cause some havok. Spartan Ops is easily more difficult than the campaign.
Halo 2 especially on co-op with someone who dies. a lot... still stuck on the arbiter,....
someone, anyone save me please

Halo 1 or 2

Halo 1 was a b*tch because of the lack of a good precision weapon. Halo 2 has jackel snipers and that room on gravemind.
I would have actually enjoyed Halo 2 on Legendary if it wasn't for the Jackal Snipers.

*Shivers*

As someone who has completed them all on Legendary as of 5 minutes ago (FINALLY!) I would say Halo 2. H3 and CE are tied for a close second, and Halo 4 last. 'Dem Halo 2 snipers got dat aimbot doe
Halo CE was the hardest. Halo 2 had a few very poor design decisions in certain places that made certain parts incredibly frustrating and unenjoyable to play (as did Halo 3, mostly in the floor segments). But occasional frustrations don't make those campaigns harder over all. CE is consistently the most challenging from start to finish.

Halo 2 is the answer. Between the bullet sponge Brutes and super annoyingly tough Elite Ultras...

Though I would argue that Cairo Station is the hardest level, not only of 2 but perhaps all of them. The opening scenario is easy enough. But once you get into both rooms with the boarding crafts, the Ultras that keep getting pumped out are notoiously evil with incredible damage and accuracy. And unfortunately, you cant exactly backtrack for more ammo and they're likely to eat your bullets, hide behind crates and recharge and come back for thirds.

Another tough spot was just before getting the shotgun because when you go down the stairs you face two grunts, two ultras and two invisible Elites in a narrow passage.

The only way to get through this level without taking several hours is using the scarab skull.
Currently doing my Halo 2 legendary run now. Yep Cairo Station, wow it took forever. But I actually had a harder time with Outskirts. Them jackel snipers.
Wars then 2
My list of the hardest Halo
  1. Halo 2A: The only halo i haven't completed in MCC. The missions I have completed is Cairo Station, Outskirts (I did skip the beginning that did make it easy), Metropolis, Arbiter, Oracel, Gravemind, Uprising.
  2. Halo CEA: The mission I died most in was Two Betrayals. Truth and Reconciliation was the mission I thought was going to be harder than it really was.
  3. Halo 3: I have completed 6/9 missions and I'm soon going to complete it legendary solo.
  4. Halo 3 ODST: Coastal Highway because you need to escort DARE in a highway.
  5. Halo Reach: The Pillar of Autumn is the most difficult mission. When I completed it legendary solo i did the early mac cannon to make it easier.
  6. Halo 4: Midnight is the hardest mission and the mission I have completed most times in legendary solo.
I have an honest question to anyone who says Halo CE (or any other game for that matter) over Halo 2: why?

I've always been puzzled by this, because everything in Halo 2 is just more difficult: enemies take as much or more shots to kill, the player's shields go down faster, projectiles shot by enemies are faster and as or more accurate. There's just no upside to Halo 2 in terms of difficulty, it's just harder in every way imaginable. Every other game is just a walk in the park in comparison.

We should ban everyone who says anything but H2!
Halo 2......it gives me nightmares to this day.

Halo CE was a grind but I beat it with relative ease, funnily enough the Library was actually the easiest level for me. Tha hardest and the only one I really got stuck on was Truth and Reconciliation. The room after getting into the lift is the second hardest encounter in the franchise(my opinion). This brings me to Halo 2....Jackal Snipers are brutally unfair, Brutes are annoying bullet sponges, and Elites are so jumpy I can never keep their shields down. All of this reaches a tipping point on the level Gravemind. This is the single most difficult thing I have done in the Halo franchise. The first room is a nightmare, and everything after....*shivers*
After that, I found Halo 3 and Halo 4 to be very very easy, with Halo 4 actually being slightly harder for me than Halo 3. Probably because of lack of practice and the promethean crawler swarms.
At the risk of a ban from Snickerdoodle, I`m going to hesitantly say Wars has the hardest single mission.

2 was solid thanks to the snipers, but the elites fell to PP/MAG combo, brutes could be kited ok, and once you practised abit it wasn`t too bad. Overall a very hard campaign, definitely hardest whole campaign.

Wars however....04. That mission, those transports, that repetition as you die over and over again....

*pick up a tissue, wipe away single tear*
Halo 3: ODST.
I don't personally see how anyone can say Halo 1, 3, or 4 are harder than 2. Reach possibly, but I've never beat that one.
Halo 2 was for me
