The Mythic shield, as per Halo: The Master Chief Collection's release.

Mythic, also referred to as LASO ("Legendary All Skulls On") and SLASO ("Solo Legendary All Skulls On"), is an informal difficulty setting for any Halo title featuring Skulls.

Overview[edit]

In order to play on this difficulty, the game needs to be set to Legendary and all the Skulls activated. Mythic is possible in Halo 2, Halo 3, Halo 3: ODST, Halo: Reach, Halo: Combat Evolved Anniversary, Halo 4, Halo 2: Anniversary, and Halo 5: Guardians. When played solo, its shortened name is "SLASO".[1] Halo: Reach weekly challenges often include a challenge in which the player needs to complete a certain campaign level. Although it can be beaten, the game stats will still read "Legendary" since Mythic does not exist in the game's code. For the same reason, the difficulty for the games up to Halo: Anniversary do not have an icon. However, with the release of Halo 4 onward, 343 Industries implemented an icon for the difficulty, generally featuring the Legendary shield surrounded by skulls.

Trivia[edit]

  • Players can exploit the "Save and Quit" option in the pause menu whenever the player dies. When the player resumes gameplay from the Campaign lobby, they will start from the previous checkpoint and may continue to the end of the level. Doing so will still reward the player the weekly LASO challenge.
  • If the player completes a mission on Mythic in Halo 5: Guardians with Score Attack on, the post-game carnage report background will change to show Mister Chief with a lasso in a desert background, as a reference to "lasso" being similarly spelled to "LASO".[2]
