    Load up Midnight, Rally Point Bravo. You'll fight through a couple of rooms and down a shaft. (These rooms are some great places to get Watcher kills.) Eventually you'll go through some portals into a room with a lot of Covenant weaponry.

    Grab the Gravity Hammer.

    During this next section, there are about 6 Knights, 1-2 Watchers and a bunch of crawlers. Go crazy with the Hammer and take everyone down. You're almost guaranteed to get is just by smashing everything in sight.

    This is also a great place to earn a few others as well, especially the Crawler and Knight achievements. Grab the Incineration Cannon when you get the Hammer, kill everything, and reload the checkpoint. The medals will also pile up as you get multikills. You should be well on your way to these if you replay it enough (and haven't already gotten them):

    Edit: Someone asked for a video of where I'm talking about. I don't have a capture card, but I found this walkthrough.

    Rally Point Bravo is about 9:00 in (I think, I'm doing this from memory).
    The room with the weapons is at 14:40. Pick up the Gravity Hammer, and the next room has a boatload of dogs Crawlers. If you run into the lower area, they'll all swarm you. Go crazy!

    Neeners CleedusBe sure to do it on easy otherwise this piece of shit garbage of a game will only toss the crawlers around with the hammer and hardly ever kill them..

    D RomaineThis is really late, but I found an easier way for me...In the same room above, if you go to the opposite end of where you are supposed to defend. The first group of 3 crawlers will come almost together down the path to you. Once they are in the middle, run out and slam them. I was able to do it multiple times.

    Partway through the level, you will be presented an armory. Obviously, you'll need to pick up the gravity hammer for the achievement. You will need to kill 3 crawlers (dog looking creatures) with one swing within Mission 8. Right after going through the teleport, you can catch 3+ crawlers near each other if you're fast enough. Otherwise, just take your time, and get to the part of the level where Cortana will ask you to "defend". At this point, let the crawlers come to you, and you shouldn't have a problem finding them in a group of 3.

    RatpoizenEasily the best place, took a few tries but just reload checkpoint till you get it!

    thedarklitPut the difficulty to easy, then go up to the defend room. Crawlers keep spawning, so just keep dodging bullets until there is about 10, then take a swing and you easily get 5.

    Load up RALLY POINT BRAVO and play until you get to the room with the Covenant Weapons. Get your GRAVITY HAMMER and save it for a little while until you reach the best place for this by far. There is a place where you don`t have to wait for the crawlers to pack themselves in,because sometimes they will not. This place is at the part where Cortana asks you to DEFEND your position while she is hacking the computer. She says "Reinforcements!" "Hold them off while I locate the composer" and then you will fight a few waves of crawlers. When she`s done,you will get a perfect checkpoint as well. On the top of your screen you will read "FIND ROUTE BACK TO THE COMPOSER",after that you have to cross a corridor with tons of crawlers all packed up at the very end waiting for you to CRUSH them! You can do it even on legendary,and if something goes wrong you can retry right away. Good luck!
