This achievement is obtainable solo or co-op. Unlike the FPS Halo games, difficulty doesn’t play a factor in the gold medal score. So, you can play the entire campaign on easy and get gold on every mission. You also can get gold on any combination of difficulties. For example; if you get a gold medal on the first mission on legendary, you can get gold on easy for the other 14 missions and obtain this achievement.

In co-op, you might have to get gold on the same difficulty like back on the Xbox 360. Also, if you play co-op you need to complete every mission in co-op for your gold medals to unlock this achievement. Solo and co-op count separate for medals. Co-op can be easier if only one person controls units and the other controls bases and revivable units like Forge or Spartans. Transferring all expendable units to one player supposedly circumvents the combat bonus allowing for a x10 combat bonus even with units lost. I have not personally confirmed this (due to no one on my 200+ friends list playing HW:DE), thus my speculative grammar.

Gold medals are earned by a combination of 3 factors.
1. Completing Objectives
2. Multipliers
3. Skull Multiplier

Completing Objectives
Primary Objectives
Cannot be missed as they are required to complete the mission.

Secondary Objectives
These are optional, so they can be missed. Make sure you complete all of the secondary objectives as they can prevent you from getting gold when the multipliers are factored.
Combat Bonus
The max multiplier is x10. Kill enemy units and try not to lose any of your units. Every unit you lose will reduce the combat bonus.

Time Bonus
The max multiplier is x5. Every mission has a par time. If you complete the mission before your timer enters the par time you will get the max multiplier. Refer to the provide achievement link for list of all par times for each mission. Par times are the same no matter what difficulty.

Skull Bonus
This bonus is not necessary. The skulls do not count points until active and you get kills with them on. If you complete all primary and secondary/optional objectives on every mission and get the max combat and time bonus you will never need skull bonus.

To recap, just remember these simple rules.
1. Try to not lose any units.
2. Complete the mission as fast as you can.
3. Complete all secondary/optional objectives. This will get tricky when trying to get the time bonus on a few missions.
4. Only use skulls if you need the extra points. Otherwise don’t use them at all.

To get a complete record of your gold medals progress on every difficulty go to "Service Record" in "Options and Extras".

Do remember all games have glitches and/or hidden rules.
If you are experiencing trouble trying to get this achievement, try one of the two following methods that have worked for others.

1. Play solo, on easy. Back on the Xbox 360 this was the best way to try and get glitched achievements to unlock. If the achievement still does not unlock, ratchet up the difficulty and go for gold medals again. I personally had to do this on the original Halo Wars.

2. Since HW:DE is a Play Anywhere title, if you have a Windows 10 PC that can handle HW:DE, some people have been having success getting glitched achievements to unlock on their computer.
