I got this achievement yesterday and it was one of only two remaining achievements that I needed. I was either impatient, or It was actually alot harder to do on Windows Phone than it was to do on Windows PC. Here's my strategy for a quick finish = If you are low on credits, start the mission "Til' Death Do Us Part" in Operation C with both the FAMINE & BLIND skulls activated. Then complete the mission making sure to kill everything you can find, namely turrets and ghosts for big points vehicle kills, basically go for gold score (150,000). If you achieve the gold score you will earn 1,375 credits (I think thats the number, but 1,300-sumthin). Repeating this level with those two skulls active is the "strawberry cow" your gona wanna milk for credits whenever you need them. Anyways, repeat this method until you have at least 3,000 credits, or if you already have 3,000 credits = Start mission D-5 and buy the following upgrades - Sniper Rifle, Rocket Launcher, Seeker Drone And Damage Booster. After killing the first watcher, go through the opening of the next area and release your Seeker Drone to dispatcherate the first focus turret. Proceed through the first area hugging the top area of the map sniping all the watchers and any crawlers that become a problem. For the turret near the exit to the next area you can either use your Rocket Launcher and rush him quick, or if there arent many crawlers around you can Drone it. If you have to, pick up another gun in place of your sniper temporarily to take out any crawlers inbetween you and a wandering watcher that wont come down from the opposite side of that area (which I avoid at all costs! that turret on the bottom wall gets me 75-85% of the time I try to rush it with a rocket launcher) so just release a drone to finish off any straggler watchers then move into the next area. For this area just adlib the same strat as for the first area but stay central, I found that some of the turrets in this area cant be taken down by a drone shot alone (I dont know why but they do lol) so I would suggest releasing your drone then running towards the turrets firing about ten rockets off to ensure they are destroyed before getting a chance to fire. If you stay central in this area you will only have to deal with two turrets, the last 2 watchers in this area will start to come to you, but not all the way so you either have to dip down (if your spartan turned right) a little bit to snipe them or you can drone them. Then onto the last area! ok chums this is why we spent all the credits on all the fancy gear! it is imperative that you have as close to a fresh rocket launcher as you can when you get here. Forget the drone it will do little good here, this area you NEED to keep your eyes open for spawning turrets and spam rockets at them like you buy ammo at the dollar store without moving around too much (after you kill the covey n00bs and the countdown begins there are turrets EVERYWHERE) my sweetspot can be easily described as just a little to the right of the first turret that spawns on the left side of the map. Once you rocket that turret, stand just to the right of where it spawned and rocket anything that comes near you but focus on spotting any newly spawned turrets and just rocket everything from that spot, the rockets combined with damage boost will make the "standing there taking fire" maneuvre much easier to deal with. Trust me folks, you dont wanna get to this point and blow it cuz you moved around too much, it happened to me a few times and its crap right near the end. As soon as the timer is up, take off above you and dont look back, there are no more turrets (that I know of) after this point. Use your sniper to blast through the last few enemies and b-line for the marker. The achievement will pop at the score tally screen.
I messed this up about 7 times before I said thats it.... I'm gona overkill my upgrades! I got this my first try using this method and the mentioned upgrades.
Good luck everyone, I hope this guide helps.
