    This first happens in mission The Arbiter. It should be unmissable if you're playing solo. (It's possible to miss this in co-op) About a third of way through the mission. The Heretic leader will run away and jump into a yellow banshee. Follow him, and hop into another yellow banshee. The achievement should pop immediately.

    If it doesn't, the next area has a bunch more yellow banshees. You could also unlock this achievement in the next mission, with another yellow banshee.

    Note: It is possible that this method of unlocking the achievement might be unintentional. Let me know if the solution stops working. Certain skulls might disable this achievement.

    GoGoActionTeamThis one has still not gone for me. I did the mission on legendary with about 10 skulls active...I dont know if skulls make certain ones not work. I also picked up the Famine skull on the next mission (The Oracle) and did not get the achievement for that either. Not sure whats going on.

    CONKER1182In my game I had a Heretic Banshee spawn to the right of the Banshee that the Heretic Leader got in and took off on normal and I was able to get this cheevo by getting in that banshee.
