If They Came to Hear Me Beg is a Campaign Achievement in Halo: Reach. The achievement is obtained when a player performs an assassination against a Sangheili to "survive a fall that would’ve been fatal." It is represented by a combat knife over red, circular saw blade.[1]


  • The achievement's name is derived from a quote by Thel 'Vadamee during his shaming: "If they came to hear me beg, they will be disappointed."
  • The easiest way to get this achievement is at the very beginning of The Pillar of Autumn. At the bottom of the cliff, there is an Elite and by jumping off the cliff using sprint, it is possible to get the achievement. Remember to turn off sprint just after jumping off. To ensure you would die from the fall, throw a frag grenade at your feet prior to sprinting off to remove your shield (or just play on a higher difficulty like Heroic or Legendary; even Normal will most likely do the job).
  • It is also possible, although very difficult, to get the achievement while jumping off of the Spire on the level Tip of the Spear.
