    Mission: Uprising

    I had a few issues with getting this to unlock when I ignored all the enemies at the beginning. It isn't necessary for most people to kill the first enemies, but in my case I had to.

    Go through the mission killing all the enemies along the way. Once you get inside the structure. Continue going through the mission for a little bit longer, and you'll come to another door. When you enter the door, there will be a ledge and a lower area below you with some plasma turrets and a few enemies. The cowardly grunt can be found under this ledge, but he will only speak once the enemies have been killed. After clearing the area, walk up to him to get the achievement.

    Mad Dog MalcsNormal, no skulls, kill everything, don’t die. This was the only way I could get this to pop that I tried.

    daylightEXI had to do this on Legendary with the IWHBYD skull activated before it would pop. No deaths and killed all enemies on the way to the grunt.

    Yummy BaklavaNormal, no skulls - I did what EB89AU said and I skipped most of the enemies until the room where the Grunt is hiding in the corner.

    Achievement unlocked.

    Uprising - Cowardly Grunt Egg: For this Easter Egg, you’ll want to head into the first building at the start of the level. Inside this building, just below the ledge in front of you is the cowardly Grunt. Make sure to avoid any huge explosions nearby (Scarab skull isn't recommended) and kill everything but this grunt. After killing all the brutes nearby, the lone surviving grunt will begin cowering and begging for mercy. Head over there and listen to his woeful tale for the achievement. Video below shows it in action.
