Simply complete the level "Pillar of Autumn" without picking up an overshield. An overshield is a glowing red box, and they will appear in covenant docking pods. One of those pods appears about a quarter of the way through the level (you'll know you're at the right part because there will be an explosion and a marine will say "What the hell? Did something just hit us?").

Dying/skulls do not affect the achievement, but it must be done on legendary.

If you pick up an overshield by accident, you must restart the level. Reverting to the last save does not work. *Confirmed by zzUrbanSpaceman

Legendary difficulty might make it challenging, but this isn't a very long level, so you shouldn't have too much trouble.

Good luck.
