(Halo 3/ODST) Reliving the Road to Recon

8 posts in this topic

Remember the good old days when Recon was a symbol of all bad-assness in Halo? When it represented something, and wasn't just given out to every douchebag with a controller and a console? Remember how much it meant, how sought-after it was? By every gamer worth his salt in the Halo Universe? Well, my friends and I hope to relive this journey, and anyone who thinks they have what it takes to make the journey is welcome to come along! My friends and I only have a spot or two open, but I'll be more than willing to help organise other groups and I will even contribute my skills to anyone who would like to earn these three legendary achievements. Endure, Annual, and Deja Vu. Journey with us to the battlefield for the glory of the Angry Army, Halo, and all of Gaming! I hope to see you guys out there.

 

Please, reply if you are interested in helping, looking for something to do, achievement hunting, looking for a challenge, or even just long to relive the glory days. XD I realize it's not exactly easy to find a group with the skills, patience, and/or games necessary to attempt these challenges, so, also consider this forum as a hub for anyone interested in earning these achievements. Period. Arranging groups, giving advice, sharing stories, etc.

Long Live the Game Commander!!!

Oh Recon, when Halo 3 came out, the mythical Recon is what me and tons of people had strive for, being 13 years old and addicted to Halo 3, I tried so many different ways, such as trying to get on Bungie's favourites, asking people who got Recon how I get it, trying to participate in Events for people aged 18 and over, trying MLG Clan Battles. Loved it a ton and was one of my goals in Halo 3 to achieve, anyway possible, such as spending more than 3 hours trying to get Vidmaster Challenge: Annual to get one step closer to that Legendary Armour: Recon!

 

I wish I could join but my ODST disc is broke and has been for a few years, never really got round to replacing it but enjoy the Vidmaster Challenge, man I wish I could go back and just relieve those days, it's different when you're older, you don't have that wide ambition and imagination compared to when you're a kid, and you don't get that excited like when you're kid, maybe because I'm a bit of Cynic. :lol:

Lol I definitely understand. That's too bad man. XD Especially about the disk, ODST is pretty frickin sweet. I still remember when all my friends were working day in and day out to earn the Helmet. lol Every day that was all we talked about. Sniper lessons, intense SWAT sessions, FireFight training, etc. Good times. Even my little bro grew up hearing stories about it and refused to simply accept that it was given to him without having earned it, and he is now in my group working towards the achievements with me. lol So proud. XD

Halo is my addiction to this day. It's sad how empty 3's lobbies have gotten; fortunately I still get to play it actively with some friends. Firefight on ODST is great no matter what though. Lost Platoon...

Ah, The vidmasters, Those were good days, God DAMN YOU DEJA VU ACHIEVEMENT. I remember seeing a guy with Recon before everyone got it and I was like "Wow that man is a badass". Now you have to decide the person who has Recon earned it proudly or is a 10-year old who sprays on Axe everyday, Skips class, has a craving for Mountain Dew, mic spams, and shoots like he can't aim for anything. I never got mine the Vidmaster unfortunately.

I know I will sound like one of those online liars that you would hear during those days but, I really did got Recon via Bnet before the vidmasters. I think it was for getting grizzled ancients but, I never got that and still got it for being in the group. Im pretty sure it was DeeJ who unlocked it for some of us. This was obviously back when OG Bungie was still around. I enjoyed the helmet for while until the vidmasters came out and then of course 343 gave it out to everyone.

Anyways OP, getting the Vidmasters was still a good time. Unfortunately, if you really wanted to get them again I can only help with the Halo 3 one annual as I sold ODST a long time ago.

I'd be glad to help you out! I'm currently working on the vidmasters as well. I have lightswitch, brainpan, and classic. I have booth ODST and Halo 3.  Please let me know if you still have the spot open.  But Recon has to be great. Especially since a few years back when I got it for some reason on my banned account. Everyone was either saying " Yo that guy is awesome!" or "You suck. Get a girlfriend!" I felt great about having it. Then i got banned for "cheating" I think that many people reported me for cheating. But I really wanna help you and your friends out. GT: Rt Snipe V2.

I'm up for some achievement hunting in ODST. I never got the vidmasters (Endure and deja vu) because of the lack of matchmaking. My GT: Icepick 9614
