So you've stomped out the Flood, weathered the Storm, and raced across the barren plains on a highway we like to call Tsavo. You've gotten your hands dirty and are now finding yourselves knee deep in Mythic. It isn't just about the armor anymore. It's about emerging victorious in one of the toughest challenges Halo 3 has to offer. Soon, my friends.
Comparing this week's challenge to a wave of Firefight Hunters seems fitting enough; The Covenant on solo Mythic (Legendary + all 13 skulls activated + FFA Scoring). You'll be using everything you've learned so far to beat this mission to a bloody pulp. Nearly every enemy in the game makes an appearance somewhere on this mission (with the exception of Pure forms), and you'll find yourself trudging on land, sea, and air in order to stop Truth from committing mass genocide on a galactic scale. Even the Gauss Hog makes a long overdue appearance while aiding you on your quest for victory over the Covenant.
To help compensate for the mission's extra length and added difficulty, we've given you not one, not two, but three different walkthroughs to help you reach the finish line. The HBO Covenant Mythic walkthrough
includes narrated flash videos for all key areas, the new and improved 2.0 walkthrough
is also up and running provided by the Q4M group
, and finally, we've created a special Covenant Kamikaze guide
for those of you who'd rather try to speed through the mission as fast as possible.
The challenge starts today and lasts for one week. 7 days... (you see the ring, and then you die!). Be sure to have a gander at THE RULES
to up your chances at winning Recon. That link also includes answers to the most frequently asked questions about the contest, so I urge you to take two minutes of your time to read over them. Additionally, here are a few tips to glance over as well which were also included last week:
- Please title your film "Mythic Covie".
- When you send me a private message on Bungie.net with your entry, please title the message "SMRC: The Covenant".
- Be sure to hyperlink your entry. Use the following format: [url]insertfilmaddresshere[/url]
- Please do NOT private message me on either here or Xbox Live asking questions about the contest. All questions about the contest should be asked in Urk's thread here. All questions about Mythic Difficulty itself should be asked in the main thread here. No Friend Requests either, please...
- Please only submit ONE entry. Double check your work beforehand so you don't have to worry about submitting it incorrectly. It's not a rush. You have a full week to do this.
- Please do not ask me whether or not I have received your entry. Have faith in the system. If you sent it, I got it.
Awesome. Now that we've got all that straight, best of luck to you while venturing through one of the longest missions in the game! :-)
