Three ODST achievement teams join forces to form The Helljumpers

The upcoming release of Halo 3: ODST for Halo: The Master Chief Collection on the Xbox One has the members of our ODST achievement teams excited to revisit the streets of New Mombasa. To improve the ability of team members to set up runs, we will be consolidating the Brigade Team, Highwaymen, and Team Punishment into one single team, The Helljumpers. The team will support all achievements previously supported by the three individual teams (200k Firefight scoring, Vidmaster Challenge: Deja Vu, and Vidmaster Challenge: Endure) on the Xbox 360 and Xbox One, and will be under the leadership of Reaper and aDrunkBaconGod. If you need to unlock these achievements, head over to the Helljumpers’ board and request help from the team in the appropriate thread.

The team is also looking for new team members willing to help with these achievements. If you would like to volunteer your time to help members of SIP get achievements, please message either of the team captains.

Vidmaster Challenge: Déjà Vu Achievement Guide

The Achievement Guide Spotlight is back, featuring one of the Spartan I Project’s achievement guides. These guides are written voluntarily by our members to help others with difficult achievements in the games we play. In each guide are strategies you should adopt to make the process of earning them as painless as possible.

This week we’re commemorating the fourth anniversary of Halo 3: ODST’s release date by featuring our guide to the Vidmaster Challenge: Déjà Vu achievement, which requires players to team up with three other players on Xbox LIVE and clear the Coastal Highway mission on Legendary difficulty with the Iron skull activated and without boarding a Warthog or Scorpion. This guide was composed by Declan Clarke (aka TopdeK), is also hosted on HBO and includes 12 video clips to supplement the guide for visual learners.

While the guide includes a comprehensive strategy for the achievement, it is far easier to enlist the help of the Highwaymen, our achievement team dedicated to helping community members unlock the Déjà Vu achievement. As of this posting, they’ve unlocked the achievement for 1,291 players and would be happy to help you out as well – just post here to request their help.

Hit the jump to see how the Highwaymen work their magic!

Some of you know him as Killagruntjaro, to others, he is the free-spirited Kevin
