This is most easily achieved in local play using two controllers. As One Eyed Tigh mentioned, Raven Down is the best map to do this on due to its size and the fact that it only has two objectives.

The method I am about to describe only requires you to spend about 20 seconds setting up each round, allowing you to go and do something more exciting for the next four minutes while you wait for the round to finish itself off.

Start a 120 point game, one round. You can actually make the match as many rounds as you like, but I prefered doing one round at a time so that I could stop whenever I wanted to.
(Note: if you are also going for the "THIS! IS! ANNEX!" achievement, then doing this in three round matches will also count towards your match total for that achievement - credit to VegaDark541 for that suggestion).

When the round starts move both players near to the first objective but don't enter the ring yet.
Move Player 1 (the one who you want to get the achievement) into the ring and wait for the countdown to begin.
Once the countdown starts, move Player 2 into the ring and simultaneously move Player 1 out, stopping the countdown. At this point Player 1 will have a small number of points, let's say 2 for the sake of this example (it can be anything between one and four, five or more is too many) and Player 2 will be counting down for the remaining 58 points.
Now move Player 1 to the other end of the map and leave him so that he will be positioned inside the second objective once it appears.

You can now leave the game alone for four minutes while you wait for the round to end. The objectives will alternate ends, awarding points to either player so that the scores after each objective look something like this:

Player 1: 2 Player 2: 58
Player 1: 62 Player 2: 58
Player 1: 62 Player 2: 118
Player 1: 120 Player 2: 118

Each round will take roughly four and a half minutes so this achievement can be done in around 90 minutes, but using this method you will only have to be present for ten minutes of those. Enjoy the other 80: I used mine to eat cake, watch TV and write this guide. I hope it helps!
