However, none of these medals have physical representations, and Xbox Live has no way of recording them as the game does not utilize Xbox Live.

For Halo: The Master Chief Collection on the Xbox One, a GameFAQs message board topic titled “One way to possibly deal with “Downloading Latest Data” bug”.
Well, Master Chief Collection would like to have a word. With your internet connection. Master Chief Collection is getting added to Microsoft’s Game Pass program later this week, and developers Industries have put together a patch to coincide with the launch. A major reason for the update is the inclusion of 4K HDR assets, and because the Master Chief Collection is literally four games in one, that’s a double digit download for each game not to mention anything else that you might want from the Forge for Halo 3 or Halo 4.
The patch will also roll out Intelligent Delivery, an Xbox feature that lets developers divide up data for the game so users don’t have to download everything like grabbing 4K assets when you’re playing on an Xbox One S. In Master Chief Collection, that means players have the choice of what game components they want to download.
If you don’t want to touch Halo 2 with a foot flagpole, you don’t have to. Similarly, you can just have the multiplayer for Halo 3 and ignore the campaign entirely. The small problem with this, as notes , is that you’ll still have to download all of the assets first – or enough until the games are playable. All matchmaking games are now hosted on dedicated Microsoft Azure servers, which is nice, and offline LAN support has finally been added. Load times are better for all Xbox consoles as well, not just the Xbox One X, with Halo 2 Anniversary supposedly getting particular help in this area.
