Hey guys!
My first ever speedrun on this site was The Covenant Heroic in 13:42. This was back in June of 2010. It’s stood the test of time, until now.

Recently, History100 has been running missions on Legendary, beating the record for that category and also beating other difficulty times, too.
I saw he was doing this, and wanted to improve my Heroic time. I’d known for a while that the run could’ve been improved, simply because getting the Warthog to the first tower is faster than running. So I thought this would be the best time to improve my run. I started work on this run a few weeks ago, but with Halo 4′s release, I was thrown off.
Now that my interest in Halo 4 has worn off, I was back to finish this run.

I’m very proud of this run, only one mistake in the third tower. Overall a great run!

Hi Guys,

I completed this run a while back but have never gotten around to submitting it. Not much to say really, the beginning of the run is very sloppy as I missed a crucial laser shot. I also get unlucky with a marine stealing my BR before getting in the hornet. Other than that it's a pretty decent run. I'm not gonna lie this was a very difficult run to pull off but it's definitely improvable. Anyway hope you enjoy.

DarkDEVASTAT10N clocks in with 13:42 for The Covenant on Heroic, beating the previous time by an impressive 1 minute 16 seconds! He skips the beach battle and is 4 seconds faster walking uphill to steal the ghost from the grunt. He plays with fire and ends up backstabbing both brute chieftains! DarkDEVASTAT10N also uses a creative path to reach the 2nd elevator without any grenades or brute shots, kills both scarabs without dying and manages to grab another ghost in the process. With some great use of skipping rooms in the final battle and optimized combat, this run pushes The Covenant to Full House Status.

N8ked Eli comes in with an impressive first submission of a Zero-shot for The Covenant clocking in just under half an hour. He begins his journey strolling past the opening waves of enemies until he reaches the Ghost before the first tower. He has a brief dance with a Hammer Brute Chieftain, and then does his best to turn his Hornet into a jet-ski. There are some very intense moments near the second tower navigating the Turret Chieftain and invisible brutes with a limitted supply of grenades. N8ked Eli takes out both Scarabs with relaitve ease, and patiently waits for the his temporary Flood firiends to clear the corridor to Truth. Alas, this friendship is short-lived, as on his return trip is ends up  smacking them in the face with a Brute Hammer and finishing the level with ease, thus proving the saying “the enemy of my enemy is my friend, until he decides to kill me”.

It may have taken 3 years but we finally have a single player Legendary run of The Covenant. There are a few unfortunate deaths, including being caught in the Scarab teleport glitch, but it is still a stunning run to watch.

From the original High Speed Halo News Post:

Working together, Blazer787 and Chase17 are a deadly combo. For Sierra 117, the team has come up with a brilliant way to cross the gap, and beat the normal difficulty time by 3 seconds for a time of 5:53. They also submitted two solid examples of team work with a run of the Covenant on Normal in 11:44 and Heroic in 13:04, bringing the Covenant one run short of Full House Status.

From the original High Speed Halo News Post:

Huja and pXIH00terz have submitted a 2 player run of The Covenant on Normal, blasting through in 13:52. They stick together throughout the entire video, even though they try to kill each other from time to time.

We also received a single player run of The Covenant on Normal from EvilHom3r clocking in at 12:15, just 2 seconds faster than the Easy Single Player record. A Spartan laser to the face of a brute chieftain and a lucky landing on a crazy warthog jump are just some of the goodies you’ll find in this run.
