Okay this achievement basically requires you to play the level "Two Betrayals" only using the Plasma Pistol and Shotgun on Legendary. This one's difficult to couple with the "Look Out for the Little Guys" achievement from the same level as one requires you to play conservative while the other requires you to be careful and not kill Grunts.

The easiest way to do this on solo is to equip the Bandanna skull and utilise the shotgun against the Flood and in close quarters while using grenades against enemies from afar.

The hardest part for me was just after leaving the tunnels and beating the Flood + Covenant forces before the last Generator. Use overcharged Plasma Pistol shots against the Banshee till it eventually goes down and patiently throw nades and let the enemy forces take eachother out.

So i discovered a really good way to counteract the inability to "Revert to Last Save" by instead hitting "Save and Quit" on the pause screen at regular intervals (as you require). This means if you pick up a weapon by accident you can just save without quitting (Dashboarding/Turning off the Power) and then continue from your last save point with the mistake forgotten.

The best part about this is that it will work for every mission specific achievement, in particular:
- Beat The Library on Heroic without dying
- Finish the Maw Countdown without exiting your hog
- Finish a level without losing health damage

I don't want to post a guide for each achievement and flood the pages with repitition but note that it can be used in all these cases if you are having trouble.

COOP: This makes it much easier. Have a secondary controller on split screen or a friend over XBL lead the charge with the Rocket Launcher nd Shotgun while you sit back and get an easy chiev. Bandana is always a help!

Good Luck!
