    A lot of people have had trouble with this in the past. The method I use spawns the skull 90% of the time. So this is what I do:

    - The Storm, Normal difficulty
    - Get to the part where you hear "Kilo 23, this is Forward Unto Dawn, I need a Sit-Rep commander".
    - Drive the Warthog slowly till you see Ghosts.
    - Allow your team to kill a Ghost or two, but don't allow them to shoot the anti-air wraith.
    - Get out of the Warthog and melee the wraith from behind till its destroyed.
    - Beside the dead wraith will be a high, round object.
    - Park your Warthog on the highest point touching the round object.
    - Jump from ontop of your Warthog to reach the top of the object.
    - Remember to crouch jump (Jump then hold crouch button to get onto ledge)
    - Claim the skull

    - If this didn't work, restart the mission and try again. Do not try again from a previous checkpoint. Its not a big deal having to restart the missions because you can get from the start of the mission to the skull in 2 minutes.

    The MC 77I was able to do this by stacking multiple ghosts against the structure and use them to jump up.

    Chameleon1977This is another achievement made easier with the acrophobia skull. As soon as you're out in the open area, you can fly directly to the structure. It took around 10 seconds of waiting and looking around before the skull spawned for me

    The following skull can be found in the video below, and must be done on normal or higher difficulty. The timestamp for its exact location can be found directly underneath.

    If you are having trouble parking the warthog and jumping quickly before the wraith kills you, here is an alternate method.
    *Note: The skull disappears if you destroy the blue wraith.

    - Acquire the Sniper Rifle on the top of the small enclosure at the end of the dock.
    - Kill the gunner on the Anti-Air Wraith (the Red Wraith).
    - Kill the three grunts/ghosts. Then kill the two grunt/ghosts that drop in near the Anti-Air Wraith.
    - Go to the Anti-Air Wraith and look for the Deployable Cover (DC) equipment on the ground. The Gunner dropped it when you killed him.
    - Walk to the backside of the circular structure so the (Blue) Wraith won't see you.
    - Activate the DC up against the wall.
    - Jump onto the DC. Jump onto the thin wall. Jump onto the main structure where the Skull is.
