    This achievement should be a fairly easy one to get. Turn on Campaign scoring then turn on a few skulls, I usually use Tough Luck, Famine (since you spend a bit of the mission in vehicles), Thunderstorm, and the "grenade happy skull" Catch. Now, simply do a normal run through of the mission. All the vehicles you kill along the way (including the scarab) should most likely get you this achievement. Just don't waste too much time and this is one is in the bag.

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

    For this achievement you'll need to earn at least 15,000 scoring points on the fourth mission of the Campaign, The Storm. 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!

    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!
