    For this level I found it best to use this setup:

    Difficulty: Heroic
    Skulls: Famine, Fog, Jacked, Masterblaster, That's Just... Wrong, Thunderstorm and Boom

    It's pretty easy getting the Par Score on this level as long as you're relatively quick and don't die much. Just follow what I did in the video below and hopefully you won't have any problems.

    Difficulty: Normal

    Score required: 9,000

    Score I managed was roughly 5,000 but then the multiplier at the end made it 13,566 and my time was around 19:30.

    The game sometimes likes to not give you the achievement even though you beat the score. Unfortunately just beat the level again with the required score. I had to do this mission twice but didn't change my tactics at all.


    Skulls: Catch, Fog, Iron (If you die press start, save and quit, then resume) MasterBlaster, and That's Just Wrong.

    Progress through the level like normal and try to beat the level by the 20 min mark which is 5 mins over the par time. Some key things to do to really boost your score is to take out the wraiths with rockets. Rockets are found in the room in between the two giant areas where the wraiths are located. You will get quite a bit of points for doing so. Other than time and destroying the wraiths just kill as many enemies as you can. Doing this I scored 13,566.

    EurydaceThis was great. Did it in 6 minutes using the level skip and still got the score target. If you're not good at the level skip, I'd just play normally and take off Catch (you won't need it).

    AvidousI've run the mission two times now where I've had over the required score and below par time yet I don't receive the achievement. This is the only level where I have had issues like this.

    Edit: I did a hard reset on my xbox, then re-tried the level with the same settings as before and the achievement popped at the end.

    PHARREAL87I played on normal with 11 skulls on for a 3.62x bonus. This worked best for me.
