How to earn the Greased Lightning achievement?

According to True Achievements, what makes this achievement rather difficult to complete is that it tasks players to “Complete the Movement Yard in under 25 seconds”. Those who have attempted the Movement Yard will attest that this is rather impossible to do.

But it can be done as there are a few tricks players can use to complete the Movement Yard and earn the achievement without much hassle. Once players have managed to complete the Movement Yard within 25 seconds, they will be rewarded with the Greased Lightning achievement.

How to complete the Movement Yard in Halo Infinite?

Before starting, players will need to complete the tutorial which should give players an understanding of how the course is laid out. The tutorial has no timer so players can take as much time as needed to complete it.

Head back to the beginning and confirm with the AI on the pedestal to close the doors before starting. The door will reopen but this time, players will see a timer appear on the screen when they attempt to leave through the doorway.

Players do have the option to do a timed test before attempting to complete the course for the achievement. During the test run, there will be a few dummies to fight which will disappear when you head back to the starting point. Remove them and keep moving ahead.

Once you’re confident to start the course once again, go back again to the start to reset the timer. Players will need to sprint as soon as they exit the doorway before jumping over the sandbags near the wall on the right and then jumping over the pallets.

As soon as players are over the pallets, look up and jump yet again over onto the wall straight ahead of you. Pull yourself over and run to the hole in the wall with a large arrow above it. Crouch over before being dropped down into the tunnel.  

Run again along the tunnel where you can see the exit in front of you. If players do encounter dummies in the area, manoeuvre yourself around them, don’t destroy them, before reaching the exit.

Once outside, head straight for the two sandbags and jump onto them to reach a nearby landing. Turn around and look up to find a yellow railing out of your reach.

Close by, there is a small platform and a railing in one corner that you can climb onto. Make your way towards the platform, climb over the railing and go up to the next stairway.
