      This mission is so easy, it makes Floodgate actually look complicated. Yes, it's THAT simple. In fact, during my first Mythic run on this mission, I inadvertently snagged the Vidmaster Classic achievement. I'm not even going to bother dividing this one into sections, but rather pass along a few tips and let you enjoy the footage.

      You begin the mission with the Spartan Laser, a bit much all things considered. Nonetheless, carry on while avoiding the Covenant troops and plummeting Wraith Mortar. Commandeer one of the Warthogs and begin your wild rat race. No need to load up with Marines. You won't be keeping it for very long. Head straight for the narrow passage ahead while dodging any and all vehicles that cross your path. No need to pick a fight here.
      When you come to the first tunnel, grab a hemo pack located in the small building just off to the right, then abandon your Warthog and jack the nearby Ghost. It'll be a swift, lightning-fast boost race from here on out. Blast through the tunnel, and hug the water's edge on the other side and avoid the Covenant baddies. You'll notice a ramp-like rock up ahead. Rocket straight towards it, and use the incline to glide across to the opposite ledge, thereby avoiding a number of enemy Shade turrets and Covie squads.
      Weave in and out through the land canyon until you reach the next opening, which coincidently is also a Firefight map. Bolt down the ramp, make a hard right, and stay along the right wall while avoiding enemy Wraiths and Ghosts until you enter the next tunnel. Once you cross the bridge, you'll be witnessing one of the most iconic moments in the game... the collapse of the New Mombasa Space Elevator!
      Just on the other side of the bridge is another pair of hemo packs, so fill up on morphine and high-tail it forward. You'll shoot through another gap in the canyon, up another incline, and past another set of Shades. Expect to take a beating here. You'll need the hemo packs at the top located in the small structure off to the left.
      Almost there! Blast your way into the next open area which has been completely invaded by enemy defense borders, Wraiths, and troops. Immediately make a hard left, then another, and continued to maneuver through the rocks until you reach the last major gap in the mission. Boost straight forward without stopping and off the small ledge. Make a 90 degree right turn and fly straight off the cliff towards the large structure. And there you have it! You just conquered the easiest mission in both Halo 3 and Halo 3: ODST, and if you did it without killing anything, you just scored yourself the Vidmaster Classic achievement as well.
      Below displays a video on not only how to beat the entire mission on Mythic in just a matter of minutes, but also how to obtain the achievement. Enjoy!

      While my own run above gives you a demonstration on the proper hemo-pack stops and what not, below we have an extraordinary community member, Rorcin, who managed to pull this off in roughly 2.5 minutes, stopping only once for a hemo-pack! He also demonstrates a few tricky shortcuts you can opt to take if you feel like spicing things up a bit. A special thanks goes out to Rorcin for his discoveries as well as setting a new record!
