    The trick to this mission is to keep moving, you can skip most of the opening dialogue (if you know the route of the mission) and keep running towards the first contact with the Covenant. If you're on easy you can run through most of the battle and jump into the vehicle, once they radio in about the stranded marines, you just gotta race over there and defend that area, once that's done you hop in the Falcon and fly to the final area. Once again you can quickly clear this area if you're on easy and just keep killing till Kat closes the door. Race inside for the initial cutscene. After the cutscene, you can pretty much punch your way through the grunts and once you've finished the final elite the mission should be over. I did it in just under 13mins so should be very manageable.

    Tozi TiberiusGreat guide. The hardest part for me was at the final base after Kat signals that she's ready to shut the door. If your teammates aren't coming inside, keep killing the covenant from behind the door and hopefully the rest of nova team will move inside.

    If you play this level through the Off Your Feet playlist, it starts you at Rally Point Bravo saving you all the time walking with your squad at the beginning.

    This achievement is unlocked by completing the mission 'Winter Contingency " under the par time of 15 minutes. Here is my video of my doing so on Easy difficulty.

    Accidentally stumbled on a much easier and quicker solution for all the par time achievements. I don't know if this method is bugged, requires you to complete each level on Legendary or something else, but this is what I did and the par time achievements have popped.

    From the menu go into the Reach campaign, select your mission and choose rally point Charlie where you can. I put the difficulty on easy, and after simply completing the third segment of the level in as short a time as possible the achievement popped during the end level cut scene.

    This worked for all levels where you can choose the rally point. Saves you running through the whole level.
