    Did this using Famine, Grunt Birthday Party and Bandanna. Did this also going for He's Unstoppable!.

    Famine gives less ammo and bandanna gives unlimited ammo so it made sense and grunt birthday party is simply for fun, no minuses while playing making it easier.

    PuckJunkieDanny: what's to patch? It says to play with three skulls active. I personally did it with Bandanna, Famine, and Recession on Library, but only because I'm just playing through the campaign and don't have Grunt Birthday Party yet - it's the last skull. Figured it would be easy to pop as I just play through the levels rather than go back after getting that last skull. Still, if you have these three, they are definitely the combo.

    SwansOnPCPYou could combine another combination to get multiple achievements. If you put on these three skulls, play Pillar of Autumn on Legendary with two controllers, you can run through the entire thing with your other controller and unlock all of the "don't pick up X" achievements for the Pillar of Autumn, along with Tsantsa, along with the three achievements for completing a level cooperatively on normal, heroic and legendary. That's about six or seven achievements from one level.

    The most efficient way to gain this achievement is on the level "The Pillar of Autumn" on Legendary difficulty (To gain the other achievements if you haven't already)

    Skulls used:
    1) Bandana (Infinite ammo)
    2) Boom ( 2x explosive damage/radius)
    3) Famine (Less ammo dropped by enemies) - Cancelled out due to Bandana.

    While going for this on Legendary you should refrain from picking up
    Overshields and Health Packs so that you may simultaneously achieve these as well:

    RadiantViperI used Grunt Birthday Party, Bandanna, and Pinata. Pinata just makes enemies drop grenades when you melee them ... dunno why no one includes it in these solutions, since it's a "positive" skull laugh

    OnzaGreat tip on level suggestion! Something the guides at the top of the list failed to do. Thumbs up for the tie in to other achievements too!

    I was playing Legendary with a friend, and the easist method by far, is by using:

    Bandanna - Infinite Ammo
    Grunt Funeral (Available with game pre-order) - Grunts Explode Like Plasma Grenades
    Boom - Double Blast Radius.

    All skulls are positive if you think about it and even make things easier for you.

    TheIcemanComethYou might want to mention that the Grunt Funeral Skull was only available for those Day One or pre-order purchasers. You cannot get that skull these days unless you purchase the DLC code on eBay. -1

    LockAndLukeI wrote this around the time the game was first released, but I'll do that.
