So you've beaten Halo 3 on Easy, Normal, Heroic and Legendary. You've earned yourself a 50 in every matchmaking playlist, including the ones that haven't been released yet. You wear your katana with great pride and now find yourself completely in the dark about what to do next. Though you may have earned the title as the greatest Halo champion to walk the face of the Earth, you may not know that there's still one thing you have yet to achieve... Mythic Difficulty.
"Mythic" is the title given to playing the game on legendary, all skulls on, with zero deaths or saves. Now, I know what you're thinking. Probably something along the lines of OMFGWTFBBQ!!! But I assure you it's not nearly as bad as it sounds. In fact, Halo 3's campaign can be said to be the easiest in the series due to things such as plentiful friendly AI, the invincible Arbiter, and predictable enemies. In fact, the toughest aspect of Mythic is the Iron Skull which sends you back to the beginning of a mission upon death, and even that can be conquered so long as you're willing to cast aside your typical run and gun methods and start getting down and dirty with some good ol' fashion guerilla warfare!
If this is a completely alien concept to you (no pun intended), then you've come to the right place. I'll be taking you through each mission offering avenues of safety and success. I make no claim that these routes will always be the easiest, shortest, best, or most effective, but in most cases they will get you from Point A to Point B without having to "accidentally" red-ring your Xbox or crush a few controllers. Don't be afraid to get a little creative. You might surprise yourself.
Be sure to read the info pages linked in the navbar - they'll help.
