    Single controller method.

    This is pretty easy on easy difficulty. The only trouble spot is the sword elite on your final run out of the last structure. I suggest you bring a warthog into the final structure and leave it after you go down 1 or 2 ramps. Then get in it again after you run by the sword elite on your way out. Drive it out to where you get picked up to end the level. It will kill or distract the hunters as you wait to get picked up.

    You can do this on easy difficulty and it is OK to drive a warthog and have it kill enemies.

    Final room overshield location: When you reach the final room and activate the map head out the back of the room and follow the path around to the left.

    Fyre InsydeJust in case anyone needs to know this: if you think you're about to die, you can reload checkpoint and it does NOT void this achievement. You can also Save and Exit then resume checkpoint without voiding the achievement.

    To obtain this achievement you must run from beginning to end SOLO without doing anything but running and jumping, and you can use warthogs if you want.

    Avoid the Hunters at all costs as they can send you flying across the map and might fall off a ledge. So RUN AROUND THEM.

    P.S. I did it first attempt, its easier then it looks.

    P.S.S A way to not worry about the elite at the end with the sword, you can put a warthog into the hallways before going down in the building, if marines are inside they can kill the elite with the sword and if you don't have marines you can always put it on its side to block the walkway so the sword elite cannot follow you (credit goes to Dannyework87 and NJDUKE)

    I found a great and fast video done by Korbek gaming he does this in about 6-7 minutes. This will net you this achievement in a breeze.

    a note to the other guides, i can confirm that you are allowed to die! as soon as you die press start und select : save and exit. back in the menu select continoue. i did this 4-5 times in my run and it still counted!!!! i got it a few minutes ago.

    also works with the library achievement!

    but you MUST save and quit BEFORE you respawn!!!

    This is a lot easier of an achievement than it would originally seem. There are multiple skips/drops that you can utilize throughout the level allowing you to avoid 90% of the enemies.

    The achievement is not difficulty specific so I would HIGHLY recommend doing this on easy, although using the method I did in the video below you could complete it on normal, but this would give you very little room for error and you must get lucky with how the enemy acts.

    You can pretty easily get this along with the Hit the Beach achievement

    ***The HARDEST part of this achievement will be the sword elite at the end. There is a way to trap him in the room if you park your warthog correctly (I attempted it in the video but did not get it properly) - basically you want to back up the warthog and block about half the door so that you have just enough room to jump through. I tested this multiple times and every time I parked correctly the elite could not follow me out. However this is unnecessary, it does make the end a bit easier if you get it right

    Here's my video for Par Time and Pacifist, at the end the Elite with the sword will chase you and you will have to go down the part I went and turn around just in case so you won't die from him.

    For this level’s second unique achievement, you need to do the entire level sans fighting of any kind. So set the difficulty down to Easy and run through the level, ignoring any and all enemies and just make it to each checkpoint. To make it easier to escape from the sword elite at the end, when you arrive at that building bring the warthog down the ramp (don't worry, running over enemies doesn't void the achievement). Park it up against the door where you enter and later escape. That way when escaping you can get into the warthog then rotate your camera and exit it to leave it blocking the door so the elite can't follow. I didn't do this in my video below, but it will help a lot if you're struggling.

    Finally got it. Took the warthog down inside the hallways all the way to where the elite with the sword will be on my way back out with two marines on board. When I came back, ran past the elite, jumped in the warthog and let the marines kill the elite and the others back at the top.
