    Not half as difficult as the TA ratio would make you think. I went through on Normal, with Fog, Famine, Catch, Thunderstorm and Tough Luck on and finished in 21 minutes and a score of 50,000. So playing on Normal or Heroic with just a couple of these skulls on should be enough as long as you don't die more than once or twice and build up some decent killstreaks.
    I always made sure I had either a Carbine or battle rifle wherever possible, along with a plasma pistol to take down shields. The moment there is a ghost available (or the abandoned banshee towards the end of the level), hop in it, use it to take out all nearby enemies, then destroy any abandoned vehicles, turrets, and eventually the vehicle you're driving as well when it's of no more use, this will add hundreds of points each time.
    Other than that, this may take you a couple of tries to memorise the level and where to go quickly, but this is certainty a lot easier than some other Par scores

    FelsBaerAfter getting to the brige part with the banshees I didn't obtained any more points, for any kill I got 0 points. Anyone else had this problem?

    Doomkiller999If I remember correctly once you are at double the par time you stop getting points for any kills, that could be your issue

    TheBigBBI don't think you get points any longer for simply blowing up empty vehicles.

    Doomkiller999You still get points for them in ODST, doesn't seem likely they'd only keep that feature in certain games

    Edit: tried on heroic even longer time with enough skulls for 3.0 and only got 16k. yall smaokin some meth or crack. I "might" be able to pull this off with 2 people in coop to be able to get par time as well as kill everything

    Tasty PastryRan Heroic with 4 of the scoring skulls. Died 4 times - the part with the ghosts kept killing me, thanks to a elite that kept sneaking up on me. Did it in 27:19. 24,729, getting the achievement. So even if you aren't that skilled at the game, like me, this is still very do-able, even with some deaths.

    GR34TD3STR0Y3Rnormal, 4 skulls on. 24,980. Died once, but I did the quit and resume trick. No problem.

    You only need 22k
