|This is my Rifle, This is my Gun||20|
|Carried a UNSC weapon all the way through mission 3 on Heroic or harder.|
Campaign Mission 3 'Forerunner' specific. Online not required. Must be obtained on Heroic+.
You start out with 2 UNSC weapons
The Magnum Pistol is the one to carry with you as your secondary weapon until the Mission ends. It is ok if you run out of Ammo - It is NOT ok if you drop it - 'Revert to last Save' if you accidentally swap/drop it.
Note: If playing on Heroic Cooperatively, you must NOT die. You will NOT respawn with a UNSC weapon.
Note 2: You are allowed to use the vehicle at the end of the mission, it won't disable the achievement.

I wonder if this means stick with just your first weapon, or so long as you have at least one UNSC weapon on you at all times

I love these cheevos, they force you to play levels using your wits because theres bound to be promethean elite weapons that'd help you cruise through the level.

@Mr J Muffin,
Just carry a UNSC weapon whole time.. doesn`t matter when u switched ur AR for a Pistol or DMR for example..

@Mr J Muffin - It's impossible to do the entire stage without picking up a Forerunner or Covie weapon at all. As long as you keep one UNSC weapon with you throughout the level you'll be fine. I had my Magnum as a secondary weapon and never used it. Plenty of Forerunner rifles here so you never really have to switch to your UNSC weapon if you're careful.

There aren't any other UNSC weapons in the level other than the ones you start with (AR and Pistol). I did it on Legendary with my AR. Never used it except for emergencies against troublesome Knights. There's an extreme amount of Forerunner weapons and ammo though, so don't worry.

@#10, I think you're good as long as you had another spartan weapon as your secondary when you switched (ie, magnum).
about to try this on my legendary solo run... is it pretty hard?
|Comment #13 by rknb117|
Thursday, November 08, 2012 @ 02:46:00 AM
The level isn't too bad, as you can run past a lot of battles once you've whittled down the enemies a bit.
Don't think this cheevo is easily doable on Coop, as when you die you respawn with two Forerunner weapons...
Ah well, need to do it on solo legendary anyway :)

Friday, November 09, 2012 @ 04:45:39 AM
Did it on legendary, i didn't switch my AR, so i was stuck with promethean weapons, took me about a hour to get this done on legendary with one weapon
|Comment #19 by eiboon|
Friday, November 09, 2012 @ 05:50:08 AM
Impossible you say. I thought you had to take both weapons (Assult Riffle and Magnum) all the way through to the end. I managed to do this on legendary. It is not impossible but it is bloody hard. I am slightly disappointed that you only have to take one gun to the end as that is a piece of piss. If any of you struggle, well, your skills are lame.

Friday, November 09, 2012 @ 09:07:39 AM
first does a frag grenade count towards the achievement and secondly what's the trick to defeating those knights I seem to blow a whole magazine on one plus half another to kill them have they a week spot or is there a certain weapon I should use.
|Comment #21 by eiboon|
Friday, November 09, 2012 @ 10:51:36 AM
get up close and punch them. I was mostly running as had no ammo for most of the level
|Comment #22 by Pvt Kezia|

My best advice is playing the mission once to know the spawns and skip most, essentially speed running it
|Comment #23 by Olemissdph|
Saturday, November 10, 2012 @ 02:16:22 PM
Hey, through my trial and error I learned that you can do this through co-op. For co-op with friends, just keep your UNSC gun and you will be fine, but If you die when you respawn you will lose it. But here is where it got me, for co-op with split-screen, both players need to keep there UNSC weapon. Like, If the person in the co-op is signed in as Guest on xbox live, you both need to keep your weapon.
So really, if you are going to do this co-op the easiest way is split-screen and both players keep one UNSC weapon. Hope this helped.

This does NOT work with co-op! You have to do it solo!!
|Comment #26 by CameronChaoss|
Sunday, November 11, 2012 @ 01:00:59 AM
I'm not sure if this has been established or not, but this is easiest done solo NOT during your solo legendary play through.
When you're playing solo, if you die you respawn with the same guns you died with, whereas if you die co-op you respawn with promethean weapons.
On solo legendary, this level is a long, nightmare, and you will need to utilize the noob combo plenty, in which case you'd need both gun places. Just do it solo heroic on a second or third play through. and it shouldn't be too hard.
Also, I recommend you beat this game on heroic, THEN do solo legendary, just so you can enjoy it, rather than be miserable on your first play through, but I guess that's just preference.
Good luck guys!

Sunday, November 11, 2012 @ 06:51:29 PM
This can be done solo or co-op. Co-op would be easier but I did it solo. Only used the magnum when absolutely necessary and ended the mission with 4 rounds left in it. I can say on solo it was very frustrating because you get into situations where you need to kill the knights and if you don't got a good enough weapon it is kinda hard, but it can be done. As long as you NEVER swap out the AR or Magnum, (just choose which one you want to keep)then you will get this one. There are tons of foreunner weapons to use throughout so just swap them out when you run out of ammo. It is like playing the mission with only one weapon the whole time.
|Comment #29 by iamthegame04|
Thursday, November 15, 2012 @ 02:27:34 PM
Supposedly you CAN drop your UNSC weapons as long as you pick them back up off the battlefield before moving on. The Cheevo pops at the end of the mission as long as you have at least one of the weapons on you at the end. There aren't any other UNSC weapons in the whole level so finishing the level with one meant you did have to carry it the whole time one way or another.
|Comment #30 by secretspy911|
Saturday, November 17, 2012 @ 12:47:46 PM
I just done the achievement with a dummy controller. What I did is keep the dummy from dying the whole time so it keeps both of its USNC weapons. I died a couple of times so I lost my USNC weapons. But, just before the ghost ride at the end, I took the both dummy's guns and finished the mission and got the achievement. So, those who say both players need the weapon, it's false.

Haha what a load of bull I know for a fact you did not do this on legendary with your starting weapons. Show us all a vid if you think you did.
|Comment #32 by DJ Masta Andre|
Wednesday, November 21, 2012 @ 01:37:09 AM
Here's an easy way to get this. As long as you COMPLETE the mission with a UNSC weapon, you get it.
Meaning that you can drop both weapons in a fire fight, use other weapons on enemies until they are dead, then pick your pistol/rifle and continue.
Remember: you get it by completing the mission with it in your possession. Nothing says you can't drop it and fight with others, so long as you pick it up now and then.

took me about 80 minutes, not easy but not as challenging as playing solo legendary though!
snipered with the light gun most of the time!
|Comment #34 by rknb117|
Saturday, November 24, 2012 @ 03:56:50 AM
If doing it solo, its best to do it on heroic, as legendary, sometimes having a 'usable' secondary is very handy...
|Comment #35 by rknb117|
Saturday, November 24, 2012 @ 03:58:10 AM
@32 good point and quite possible, but unfortunately the stupid despawning in H4 is likely to stuff you up there at one point (personal experience :)

Did this in co op on heroic, never swapped the gun, but died and picked it back up every time. Partner finished the level before I did, didn't get the achievement. Any ideas why?

@#37 I was the leader. Could it be because he finished first? Even tho I had the assault rifle out when he finished (I had just fallen out of my ghost right at the end)

done on solo legendary it is do-able . . .
@37 could be when you died and spawned with forerunner weapons it voided the cheevo
and it DOES work co-op as long as the player keeps 1 UNSC gun a friend kept his gun and i dropped mine to make it easier and the cheevo popped for him

- Use the auto sentry a lot! It can pick off the smaller enemies and provide distraction for the bigger ones.
- All vehicles can be used (so also the ghost and banshee encountered earlier)

This was simple. Keep your magnum to kill off crawlers, light rifles and suppressors can make short work of knights. I also the found the hardlight shield to be invaluable in getting you to cover for shield charges. I found the sentry to be pretty useless

Getting extremely annoyed. I have beaten this level twice on Heroic, keeping my pistol the whole time. NEVER ONCE either time did I drop it, and I didn't get the damn chievo either time! What am I missing? Do I need to have the weapon out or something as I finish?

If you are attempting to do this co-op I suggest turning the iron skull on so that whenever you or your partner dies then you go back to last save and you have your UNSC weapon.

Post #8, still no permissions.
All you have to do is finish the level with a human weapon. You don't have to carry one through the whole mission, though its safer to do so, there's no guarantee that there will be one at the end.

Doing this on Legendary was a pain in the behind. But it will be worth it and rewarding if you can. It really makes you a better player overall. Ive seen this mission being talked about as being the most difficult or 2nd most difficult level in the game. If you can be patient and get by using only one gun than the rest of the game should be easy. Ive become much more accurate and managing ammo has become a breeze ever since doing this on Legendary. Trust me.
