    EDIT: xTGE mentioned that this can be easily achieved with the bandana skull activated, which gives you infinite ammo.

    This achievement is quite easy to get. I just got it on Heroic with little difficulty and 47 shots left, so it should be a cake walk on Easy. As far as I saw, I didn't see any Marines carrying any snipers, so your best bet is to stick with the one you start with.

    The sniper rifle is most useful at the beginning of the mission, when working your way toward the Covenant ship. Once on the ship, the sniper becomes basically useless. I would recommend replacing your AR with the Plasma Pistol as soon as possible since it is very effective at taking out Grunts and Jackals quickly, and for taking out Elite's shields.

    When fighting the Hunters (there are at least 6-8 in the level), if you constantly run around them, you can melee them in the back without them being able to shoot or hit you. This method can potentially save you health and ammo and is very easy to learn.

    Make sure you constantly have the sniper on hand and don't waste too much ammo, otherwise, restart the checkpoint. Using the Plasma Pistol and being on a lower difficulty is more than enough to get through the mission with well over 4 shots left.

    If you vote negative, please tell me why in the comments so I can try to make this solution as straightforward and helpful as possible.

    xTGEYou should proberbly add that if you have the infinite ammo skull (I got for preordering) you never have to worry about ammo

    dale smeegleThere's normally a sniper near the end. The part where your locked in a room with waves of enemies, big rectangular room with a couple of floors above, possibly beneath the end part of the level. There is a sniper on the floor with an overshield about 50m in front of a door that contains a skull but only opens for enemies to spawn.

    Bernman 117This didn't pop for me until after I finished the mission then went back into the mission selection screen.

    TheviusRacoonusI'm pretty sure that was the achievement popping late. That's a common problem still with the Xbox One. Mine popped on the loading screen for Silent Cartographer immediately after completing the mission.
