In this 7 part article, I will show you the easiest ways to get the Vidmaster achievements (which get you the Recon armor) for Halo 3 and Halo OSDT. This week we will be covering the annual Vidmaster achievement for Halo 3. It takes about a hour to do and 3 other friends, so lets get started.
Annual states that you must first complete the last level on Halo 3 on the legendary difficulty with all 4 players on ghosts with the gold skull, Iron, turned on. What makes this hard is first, the difficulty, and second that the Iron skull makes everyone restart if one person on the team dies.
The easiest way I found is that when you are facing the part where all the Flood is in front of the large Forerunner building, is to take out the guy with the gravity hammer. Take the gravity hammer (you’ll need it for later) and wipe out the Flood (not with the hammer though). After you wipe out the flood, head away from the staircase that leads up the building and go to the opposite side (left side). Now we get to use the gravity hammer. The person (you) with the gravity hammer needs to get to the wall (a couple of feet away from a drop) and crouch. Next, let a teammate over the person with the gravity hammer. At that point in the jump, the person with the hammer hits it down on the ground, which should propel the jumper to about 2 floors ahead of everyone else. Do this again for the remaining 2 people and a checkpoint should come up (thanks to Halo, the gravity hammer person will be teleported where the other members are).
Now comes a battle with Spark. To defeat him, everyone must stand back near the door and keep every weapon firing on him. He should go down in no time if you follow that tactic. After defeating him, get on the ghosts and get out of their and to the ship (only one person needs to make the jump onto the ship to beat it). Don’t quite just yet though, because a alternate ending will show. This all should get you the Annual Vidmaster achievement.
Next up is the 7 on 7 Vidmaster challenge. See you then (and don’t forget to comment!).
