    We all know what an overshield is right ? If you don't then throughout the level "Pillar Of Autum" you'll see some grunts and elites get out of pods in walls where they start boarding the ship and inside there are 2 pinkish boxes at the back left and right. To get this achievement you can NOT pick those up so whenever you see one of these ships attached to the wall it's best not to enter and just steer clear of it. Once cheif gets on his escape pod the achievement will unlock :)

    If you have 2 controllers my suggestion is to do this split-screen.

    Sign in your main account as player one and use a second account/guest as player 2. Run through the entire mission with player 2 leaving your main account stationary the entire level. It's a great way to net OVERSHIELDS ARE FOR SISSIES, WALK IT OFF, FEET FIRMLY PLANTED and HE'S UNSTOPPABLE with zero risk.

    Happy hunting!

    Today I unlocked it alone since I just recently gotten an xbox one and don't really need a second controller for a while. I used the infinite ammo skull and the boom skull. Although prior to starting the mission it states that achievements will not be recorded while using the bandana skull, I tested it out myself and received this achievement by simply throwing hundreds of grenades and ducking in cover, it was simple for me despite it being on legendary .

    I ALSO USED THIS METHOD ON HEROIC FOR NOT USING A MED KIT FOR THE ENTIRE LEVEL FOR A SEPARATE ACHIEVEMENT. I received my achievement with both cases
