    I found this one simple enough to run through on easy. Naked Eli's run was too glitch heavy for me to follow, although I will try to learn all the tricks when I come back for the Legendary speedrun achievement.
    The only parts that gave me trouble were the initial run in the Longsword, and the final part where you have to jump around to the different platforms. In the first part with the Longsword, just be careful and lay off the boost in the tight twists. It may take a few tries to get through without dying too many times.
    The last part is hard only because the Knights, Crawlers and Watchers all hit you at once. I carried a Suppressor and a Light Rifle so I would always have ammo replenished from enemies' dropped weapons. Always kill the Watchers first, it can keep a bunch of Crawlers from spawning and prevent them from bringing back any dead Knights.
    I finished with 5 minutes to spare, just remember the last interactive cutscene takes a little over a minute to complete.

    Edit: If you're going to negative vote me, at least tell me why

    SanjifranRight now on Xbox One I can play through any level on Halo 4 on the last rally point and get the achievement. Try that first before you attempt the others.

    ProAceJoker running, with Nak3d Eli commentating. It doesn't get better than this!

    Eli is a little distracted early on talking about other stuff, so you may also find this video from just ProAceJoker useful for the first few minutes in particular:

    YindidarI did this achievement on the tight corridors Playlist. It was a long way of getting it but it skips the flight part giving you extra time to do the rest.

    FonduMahonduThe playlist method worked for me for other Par Time / Score achievements, but unfortunately didn't pop for this one!
