    This was the only level i didn't manage to pick up after my legendary and co op legendary runs so i wanted to share how i got this.

    Ok so i set it to legendary and then put on Famine and Thunderstorm. As you will be in Banshees and picking up weapons from crates (which aren't affected by famine) and Thunderstorm on Halo 3 and ODST doesn't really do much - definitely put these on.

    Now you will also want to put on Tilt (or alternatively tough luck). I think i chose Tilt as personally i hate tough luck as it makes overcharge PPing brutes a nightmare. I also didn't go with catch as i found the first area horrible! I would recommend Tilt though.

    Now the absolute key to getting the points on this mission is.... Destroy all the spare banshees after you leave a section. I think i was getting at least 800 points for each one.

    Tips wise for the only room you have to fight on foot in if you go straight across from the door then there is a box of snipers and carbines at the base of the stairs. Also make sure you find and overcharge PP the engineer.

    In the end on this mission i was well over double the time but i finished with about 55,000 points or so. Hope this helps someone. With this setup it was pretty easy to get the score in my first attempt.

    Melman V2I used the Blind, Catch, Famine and Thunderstorm skulls and had the points before the final area so I just rushed past the scarab and went through the door by it to make it quicker

    JehugasmFamine and Thunderstorm on Legendary were enough for me. Tilt seemed to make the run unnecessarily hard. Thanks for the killing Banshee tip.

    PunderstatementThank you for making this guide. Was worried I wouldn't have enough points at the second room but luckily ODST doesn't stop adding points just because you go over par by a certain amount. Got it without tilt easily. Thanks again.

    MyNamelsNotJohnHonestly one of the easier par scores. The tips for destroying unused banshees were helpful, they netted me like at least 800 points each and engineers were worth at least 700. I did it on Legendary with only Famine and Thunderstorm, got a score of 81,820 in 16:27 so you honestly have a ton of room for error and don’t feel like you have to stop and kill everything. And I only died once because the scarab caught me walking to another banshee.
