    The best way to get this will be to turn on Campaign scoring and turn on a few skulls, I usually choose catch (easy since there's nothing but flood so its a freebie) , tough luck, thunderstorm, and if you know the map well enough you can use the fog skull too. Making it easier, you can do a normal run through. As long as you don't waste time and don't die to many times on that final warthog run, you should get this achievement.

    EDIT: If you are playing with friends remember that you personally have to earn the 15k, not 15k between all of you!

    Delimar xKinda late, but better later then never. This achievement has been known to mess up, atleast for me and my friends, when you play with other people. If the other people HAVE this achievement, try to do the mission without them. For some reason it messes up the scoring, even if you have the correct amount, it will not unlock.

    Tho RadiaIts because you were playing with friends, you personally have to earn the 15k, not 15k between you.

    Capt PoopeyWhat worked for me was turning on all the skulls listed above plus the Black Eye skull. The first flood enemy you see drop in on the snow is carrying a gravity hammer. Kill him, grab the hammer and simply melee (B) anything that gets in your way. Black Eye regenerates your shield with each hit. If you find yourself overwhelmed by bad guys, swing the hammer (RT) and back away from the rabble. When you're on the top platform waiting for the door to open, run down the centre ramp directly opposite the door and grab the invincibility pickup (to use it press 'X' during the attack wave). On Normal I managed a 21:00 run and scored about 24K points. And I'm decidedly average at Halo.

    An important thing to note is that your score during the game includes your skull multipliers. So the only thing you will get at the end of the game in addition is the time bonus.

    So if you have lost a great deal of your time bonus, then don't continue to play the level thinking there is more bonuses at the end, because there is not.

    It is your style of play that determines the skulls you activate. My best advice is to play on Normal. The reasoning behind this is that where Legendary will net you points, you have a better chance of hitting the time bonus on Normal, and you can have more skulls on at once and it still will not be a big deal. Thus more bonus points.

    Start with three or four skulls on, and see how you do? If it is too hard, then start over and remove a skull.

    One the other hand, if you can net the required amount of points, then the time means nothing. On Tsavo Highway for instance, I hit the 15,000 points in game. So I just jumped in a ghost and skiddaddled to the end (running through the rest of the action), and got the achievement.

    And don't be afraid to die a few times, on Normal you don't lose that many points. Of course on Normal you shouldn't die all that much either. Time is the biggest bonus, try for that before you waste time lining up every headshot and multi-kill.

    Good Luck!

    For this achievement you'll need to earn at least 15,000 scoring points on the final mission of the Campaign, Halo. This can be done solo or with a few buddies. (I got all mine solo and using the method below)

    First you'll need to enable either Free-For-All or cooperative scoring from the campaign options. Then select the following for quickest results:

    Normal Difficulty
    Catch Skull - (1.00 multiplier)
    Fog Skull - (1.00 Multiplier)
    Famine Skull - (1.00 Multiplier)

    So you'll be playing on Normal difficulty with enemies chucking nades alot, no Mini-Map, and ammo pick-ups are scarce. However, being on Normal difficulty will make this a cakewalk. And having these 3 skulls on will start your kill scoring at a x3 Multiplier, so as long as you finish the mission within a reasonable time, and die little-to-no times you'll have more than enough points to pop your achievement!
