Halo: Reach – Swift and Shallow Achievement Guide

A guide for those having a hard time with the Halo:Reach Achievement.

Where To Start

The best location (in my opinion) is at the end in the Tip of The Spear Mission. There is a jet pack near the spire so you can easily reach a banshee.

Getting to The Banshee

After getting the jet pack, jump onto a rock and wait for a banshee to get near and low. There may be Covenant shooting at you, I’d say ignore them. After you get the banshee, you can get your revenge on them.

This may take a few tries (it did for me). Make sure to hold the X button (I use an Xbox controller) when near a banshee to hopefully hijack it.


After one or many attempts, you can get the banshee easily, as shown bellow.

I love two things in life, games and sports. Although sports were my earliest interest, it was video games that got me completely addicted (in a good way). My first game was Crash Bandicoot (PS1) from the legendary studio Naughty Dog back in 1996. I turned my passion for gaming into a job back in 2019 when I transformed my geek blog (Re-actor) into the gaming website it is today.
