If you are uncomfortable trying the glitch like me to bounce into the ceiling of the ship then this is the guide for you!

I did the mission in 13:45 with a score of 21,747 unlocking par score and par time. This is not as fast as the glitch method but much easier and faster, you can waste hours on the bump trying to do it correctly, so I just went with running and gunning.

Difficulty: Normal or Heroic ( I did par score and par time on both but when I did Heroic neither achievements unlocked) Heroic is harder and you will most likely die... a ton (shit ton of enemies everywhere)

Skulls: Eye patch, Fog, Iron ( you can add Pinata on if you want, it gives you grenades from meleeing enemies and has a 1.00 multiplier so doesn't ruin the multiplier.)

If you die just save/quit and resume from the menu.

The first shotgun you need to grab is the first group of flood you encounter, make sure to grab that. After you get the shotgun you are going to be running and shooting as fast as you can through-out the level. Knowing where the overshields are is useful so the first one I know of is to the right of the lift up into the ship, the second is where Cortana says the flood are gathering bodies in the corner, if you jump down it is straight ahead next to a door that opens with a group of flood.

While running through this mission, use grenades on every horde of enemies, recommend using frags on flood and stickies on grunts. When you get to the 2 Hunters take the sniper off the ground and 1 shot the hunters in the back so you don't have to deal with them, Keep your sniper for later. When you get to the lift into the ship, grab the overshield and throw grenades at the Covenant guarding the lift.

Once in the ship you must be careful, there is tons and tons of enemies. One thing worth mentioning is that when you get to the hallway with flood fighting the Covenant, I killed all enemies with grenades, then when the flood start dropping, run past them and put your back to the direction where you are supposed to go (flood nor Covenant will come behind you because its a loading zone with no enemies). Kill as many flood as you can at this point to stack some points, I knew I needed some, make sure to leave space as there will be more enemies to kill. Be careful though, flood will spawn extremely fast here, use grenades and shotgun, save at least 3-4 bullets, you will need them.

Once you go past the loading zone you will see 3 blue elites and 1 red by a turret, shoot them with your sniper and kill all 4 for points, and don't forget the health kit near your feet. After getting that, just run where you are supposed to go (left when you were sniping the elites and right when you get to the door which will lead you to another door) Make sure to ignore the elites shooting at your back, don't worry they won't chase you.

After you get to Keyes and go through the cutscene, you can finish the level in 1 minute, so if you are below 14 minutes you can easily get par time, and hopefully par score too. Right away run into the Covenant infested hallway shooting with your shotgun, and run past as many enemies as you can, shoot mainly the elites, when you get to the end of the hallway and back into the hanger take a immediate right, there will be some covenant you need to kill (be careful of the fuel rod grunt) and continue forward. Once you get to the wall, turn left and jump down to the 2nd level. Once the banshees land, jump down and grab the banshee to finish the level, that way you don't have to kill 100 enemies going down saving A TON of time.
