    So for score, every kill gets you points and dying or losing Marines loses points. These points are multiplied by what difficulty you play on and the skulls you use. To play with score showing, choose to show score in the HUD when you choose your mission. The par for this map is 25,000.

    I had my score showing, heroic difficulty, and all main skulls on! With these settings, I ran through killing EVERY enemy I came across. I managed to finish the level with 12,730 base points. I beat the level in 27:46 which yielded an extra 2.2X multiplayer. Anything under half hour will give you an extra 2X+ I ended up with 29,100.

    My suggestion is to melee everything until you get the Warthog. At which point I had a marine on the gun and ran over literally every enemy from then on. With long levels like this, with Iron Skull on, I found it much less frustrating to save and quit if you die. Then resume the level from the main menu to start at your last checkpoint, points intact.

    Which non-scoring skulls did you have on?

    Most of the non-scoring skulls are x1.00 (e.g. Grunt Birthday Party), which does not affect the score multiplier (1.00 x 59 = 59) or any par based achievements.

    Only the x0.00 skulls (e.g. Bandana) disable par score and par time (including 3-hour legendary run) achievements.

    You're right, I had thought that all of the skulls were listed as 1.00x, only just realized that bandanna is still in-fact 0.00x and will disable score. I didn't enable bandanna and after I checked the settings, bandanna is the only 0.00x skull.

    Par Score: 12,000 & Par Time: 20:00 minutes
    Here's a slightly easier solution as the Par Score is slightly lower than it used be!
    I did this on Heroic with the following skulls on:
    - ThunderStorm
    - Fog
    - Catch
    - Famine
    - Boom (Not necessary, but makes explosions bigger and more enemies die too)
    - Pinata (more grenades for those explosions)

    When the level starts I took down the 2 Banshees and skipped the first fight to save some time. To help my score, I just saved and quit if I died. Watch out, those explosions are gigantic with Boom on. I tried to save the marines too.
    - Was about 7min 30sec when I got the Warthog
    - First rescue spot was where the marines were hiding underground and was at about 16 min after (a grunt was hiding)
    - Next I went to the rock slide and I used the sniper to pick off enemies as they dropped down, while on top of one of the many rocks.
    - Last went to the soldiers on the hill and the marine in the Warthog cleared most of the enemies for me.
    - Beat the level in under 30 minutes for a 2x score multipler, I didn't and was still fine though!

    Final Score: 14,351 pts Final Time: around 30 minutes
