New Ways to Save a Quid/Buck

New Ways to Save a Quid (New Ways to Save a Buck on Steam) is an achievement in Halo: The Master Chief Collection. It is awarded for encountering a minor objective from Gunnery Sergeant Edward Buck on New Alexandria.

The player may not necessarily encounter Buck on a given playthrough. The level features three main objectives (Covenant communications jammers which must be neutralized by the player) which take place in a randomized order. Between each main objective, the player will encounter one of a handful of side objectives (two when playing three or four-player co-op). One of these is to escort Buck's Falcon from one part of the city to another for the purpose of Buck rescuing his men or carrying out a classified mission. If the player is lucky enough to encounter Buck, the achievement will unlock as soon as he radios the player requesting an escort.

Trivia[edit]

On Xbox and Windows platforms the achievement is called New Ways to Save a Quid. "Quid" is slang for one British Pound in the same way that "Buck" is slang for a dollar. On Steam, the achievement is more directly called New Ways to Save a Buck.
