    This one is occasionally extremely frustrating.

    if anyone cares, i have a map on my file share that i created.

    This will take you to the skull directly through a teleporter, just hold down x while walking through.

    GT: mouse6666

    or follow video guides and build your own path there.

    Edit: People seem to not know how to get the skull, near red base you will see a path leading out of the map, infront of the path i placed a teleporter. Walk through the teleporter and quickly hold X to pickup the skull.

    Edit2: Included a youtube video on it

    CaarvalhoAleYour solution works but I had to look for RC comment to understand how to download the file. If you could add it to the description, it would be a perfect solution. Thanks for the map!

    Spelled IcupI just completed this skull, I held an elephant in front of me in forge and scooted backwards until the skull was covered. Took me about 10 mins.

    Method 1: (Takes 60 seconds)

    The following skull can be picked up in Forge mode on the map Sandbox.

    From the middle of the map, you should be able to see the sun. To the right of the sun, you'll see two pillars, and right between these pillars, at the very outside edge of the map, you will be able to find the skull. Use forge mode to spawn a "Tube, Corner" in the Scenery category on the map. Now go inside the corner, pick it up, and fly over to the skull's location, using the piece as protection from the laser towers that will try and kill you once you leave the boundaries of the map. You will be able to see out of the tube, so flying there shouldn't be an issue. Once you get close to the skull, place the piece on the ground, let it go, spawn inside and pick up the skull!

    It can be seen in the video below, and I have included a timestamp of its exact location:
    [1:30] - Skull 3 - Sandbox

    Method 2: (File Required)

    Go to the file share of "mouse6666" and download his sandbox skull map. Once downloaded, just load the map, walk through the teleporter and hold the button prompt to pick it up as you pass through.

    Both methods takes basically the same amount of time and effort after you factor in the extra time spent finding the required file, and selecting the map variant.

    H3rmitardI, For whatever reason did not get killed at all by the guardians as I left the boundary and literally walked right up to the skull and picked it up for the achievement

    thadman3001great guide and easy to do. just keep spamming mines even if they blow up and eventually something will happen. Either the gridlines disappear or other objects on the map will disappear, for me both bases went poof.

    I'm sure Maka or someone else will make a really good guide for these but here is the video I used to get this one.

    The "Tube Corner" that he talks about can be found in forge mode by pressing cn_up, then cn_X, and then click cn_RB until you find the "scenery" section, from there just scroll down the list until you find the tube corner.

    I think this is patched now or something because I just flew out there today with nothing shooting me.

    All you have to do is spawn a landmine and set the run min and max to same time and keep dropping them. it will eventually cause the grid to disappear. the guardians will not shoot at you. easiest way to get it. I saved the world for you to do it in.
