    Load up the level "The Silent Cartographer" in Halo:CE, and set the game to easy difficulty. Immediately after jumping off the pelican in the beginning, head left. Keep heading this direction until you come close to the shoreline (to the left of the large hill). After this, you should be able to see a big cliff. Keep heading in that direction, and once you reach the cliff, turn right and you should see a large group of jackals. Simply throw a grenade at them, and most (if not all of them) should die. This will net you around 5-6 jackal kills with a proper grenade throw. After this, hit start, reload the last checkpoint, and you should spawn fairly close to that group of jackals again. Rinse and repeat and this achievement should come with a bit of grinding! I can also confirm that this counts towards achievements for campaign medals, although I'd advise trying to get that through natural progression instead.

    NefasThis works great. The nearest checkpoint is literally a few feet before the jackals. If you're having trouble getting the checkpoint to register, die/kill yourself and retrace your steps to the same area. It should register then.

    Scavenger Hunt

    Jackals are known to be shield wielders and snipers you will come across while playing the Halo Campaigns. Killing 1000 will unlock this achievement. If you plan on going for the other achievements this will come naturally.

    If you want to go out of your way for this one, you will want to play Halo 1-3 over Halo 4 because Halo 4 is more about Prometheans than covenant (Which Jackals are part of the Covenant).

    I found a very educational video for to watch and learn about jackals, and possibly a good laugh, by Teh Spearhead. (The animation on the cover is not the animation through-out the video)
