Go Ape Shiv
Go Ape Shiv is an achievement in Halo 2 Vista and Halo: The Master Chief Collection. It is unlocked by killing an enraged, berserking Brute by melee. The achievement can be unlocked on any difficulty.
In the PC game it is worth 20 gamerpoints and is represented by 16-pointed star with a Jiralhanae's fist on top. In The Master Chief Collection it is only worth gamerpoints and is represented by a screenshot of Tartarus raising the Fist of Rukt in Installation 05's Control Room.
- The Energy Sword and Brute Shot both dramatically improve the player's melee power and yet are both still considered melee kills. As such they will unlock this achievement.
- Players may wish to attempt the achievement on lower difficulties, as berserking Brutes become very dangerous on Heroic and Legendary.
The achievement "Go Ape Shiv" is a play on words of the commonly used phrase "Go Ape Shit".
