I found a very simple way on the web, not my work but very easy :
1 - Select first level of arcade (hint : Cemetery)
2 - As soon as you start use the barrel in front/left of you to climb on the short wall with a sort of little pilar on both ends (hint : the wall is "roundish").
3 - Then jump on the right pillar, it is the highest one (hint : there is shotgun next to it)
4 - Wait 10 min till dawn (hint : go to catch up a fresh beer during this time )
5 - Skill Beats Gun unlock (hint : Positive feedback)

Edit : Advice from Misfit119 : Note that how feasible this is depends entirely on what weapons the Taken are using. It was literally impossible to get this while one of the guys with the big ol' scythe was walking around.

Edit : Advice from Billy Horrible : Try to do this achievement before you go for Glorious Dawn, it unlocks with this tactic too.

I change my GT that is why it is say "Not yet Won" ;)
