    This achievement can easily be earned on Normal with a couple of skulls activated. I beat it with Thunderstorm, Tough Luck, and Iron on in just over 13 minutes with a score of 47,300. (Par score was 40,000 when this solution was posted)

    Play through the mission normally, use the pisol to take out the Grunts and Jackals, save your Sniper ammo for the Brutes. With Iron on I recommend hanging back and moving forward only when you clear out an area. I also advise against using grenades so you don't accidently kill yourself, you may not need them anyways. In the second area watch out for the Carbine Jackals. When you come across multiple Brutes I recommend using the Plasma Pistol to drop their shields and pop them in the head.

    After the 'ammo room' watch for Sniper/Carbine Jackals on the building balcony, then take out the ground troops. A Phantom will drop off a few Jetpack Brutes, snipe them from afar. The area after that has a bunch of Grunts and standard Jackals plus a turret on the higher stairs. After clearing them out about 3 Brutes will enter, one of them carrying a turret. Plasma Pistol and pop them in the head, finish the turret Brute with frag grenandes as headshots aren't effective.

    When you regroup at the downed Pelican get on one of the mounted Missile Pods, lock onto any passing vehicle and spam away. ***NOTE*** Whoever you bump off the missile pod, I highly recommed swaping his Rocket Launcher/Spartan Laser with a less lethal weapon. I've had a few games where he blows me up trying to take out a Banshee. Stay on the pod and spam missiles at the Banshees, make the Phantoms a priority as they are worth much more points. The mounted pods have infinite ammo so no need to be stingy, You don't really have to worry about taking damage or getting off the pod, just watch out for enemies making their way up the ramp, they tend to throw Sticky grenades at you. As long as you're fairly quick through the level you should have enough points to get the achievement.

    I first tried it on Heroic for the times two multiplier (2x) but end up taking 20 minutes doing it solo, which is double the par time for this mission (10 min), therefore voiding the time bonus multiplier.

    Then I decided to switch to Normal difficulty which has no bonus of itself but it's possible to be completed faster. Using this method my final score was almost 50k in 12 minutes. That means that I received a 2.5x multiplier for completing it fast besides the 2x multiplier from the few skulls I had on: Famine, Iron, Thunderstorm (optional) and Tough Luck.

    I do not recommend to use Tilt nor Mythic for those will make the enemies tougher and will take longer to kill them, sacrificing time, the biggest and more important bonus multiplier that matters.


    After wasting most if not all of your Sniper Rifle ammo on the first room let it go and grab a Plasma Pistol instead. Headshot Grunts and Jackals with your magnum and use the Plasma Pistol to take down the Brute's armor. That's the fastest way to dispach them.

    When you go inside the police station, grab the Sniper Rifle again. Use it to kill all of the enemy snipers on the next room and let it go before leaving that room, again, switching it for a Plasma Pistol.

    You may come across a special Brute whose armor doesn't go down and that is very hard to grenade stick. He has a turret and can take you down easily. My suggestion is to focus on the other two Brutes that are near that other one and once these two are down start throwing grenades just to move the special one away from the door, so you can rush in and not waste time trying to take him down. As soon as you enter that door and jump down, two Grunts will get scared and run. Kill them before they totally go outside, otherwise the firefight will alert the 2 Jackal snipers and the Grunt with a Plasma Cannon. You can kill those guys easily with Magnum headshots (there's one on the floor before going out, where the 2 scared Grunts were) if they don't see you coming.

    Once you reach the fallen Pelican and the rest of your team, try to take down any enemies on foot, so that the game will speed up the Banshees and Phantoms part. Run upstairs and assume the rocket turret on the side that the Banshees are coming. Stay focus and aware of the enemies, start aiming and shooting them even before your missiles get autoguided. Once all of the enemies on one side are down, go to the other.

    If any of the two missile turrets get destroyed (bad luck if it happens, try not to detach them yourself!) use the Spartan Lasers and spare missile turrets against any Banshees that are within range. Pay attention to your health and don't risk getting killed if it starts beeping red.

    If any part of this solution helps you, please leave a comment and a thumbs up to let me know. Thanks!

    Here is a video guide by Halo Completionist who has done a guide for pretty much every achievement in the game.

    Here he is doing the mission NMPD HQ in Halo 3: ODST over par score. If you're having any trouble, just watch what he does in his video.

    NOTE: Playing in coop will greatly help with your score as it will be a faster time.
