How hard is Solo Legendary?

I've done the first mission so far, but I feel like the later levels are going to be hell.
Playing- Halo 4, ME3, NBA 2k13, Gears of War 3, BO2

Considering past games, I'd say close to impossible. I've only been able to do it with 3 or 4 player co-op.

They are.

A lot.
Blitz shouldn't be able to pull through walls either. That is a nonsensical glitch that Riot really needs to fix. --Alex Hinkley/Xander7756

Started playing Solo Legendary a couple of days ago. Not as bad as I thought it would be. Just gotta be patient and make smart decisions.

It's not bad, just remember PP is gonna be your best friend, but that's true for every Halo game on Legendary.

If you asked me personally, my answer is "fairly easy", but that's a relative term. This is coming from someone who gets DESTROYED online so I feel like If I can do it, most Halo players can as well. I beat Reach on Legendary and I just beat the third level on Halo 4 on Legendary and I feel that 4 is a lot harder. There aren't NEAR as many checkpoints and the enemies seem to withstand a lot more shots. With that being said, as long as you're patient and you're a steady shot, you'll be fine. It took me a good 2 hours to beat the last level on Reach (the one before Lone Wolf) and damn did it feel good to get 5 achievements and like 300+ gamerscore at one time

I imagine it's a lot easier in co-op as well since as long as 1 person's alive, you don't have to repeat anything

Not as hard as Reach or CE, which were the only other games I played. I didn't use the plasma pistol that much as I found that enemy shields weren't really that strong enough to warrant it - spamming DMR or carbine shots was usually enough. Reclaimer and Forerunner were probably the toughest but on the latter, I was also going for the achievement. But it's usually specific areas in levels that overly tough, not the entire levels themselves..

how is Reach harder? in Reach, they checkpoint you like every 5 seconds.

not turning this into an arguement, I just wanna know specifically why it was harder

I just did it and didn't find it too difficult, albeit some situations did bog me down for a bit. The biggest thing is to just take it firefight by firefight, don't expect to fly through the levels.

It was a hell of a lot easier than I thought it would be. Like... ridiculously easier. I expected dying a lot and getting frustrated everywhere.
