    Simply load up 'ONI: Sword Base' on any difficulty (you can do this from Rally Point Charlie) and traverse through the level until you enter the actual Sword Base (it is soon after killing the two hunters, you'll know it is the right area when you run into Jorge). It is across the bridge from where you move onto the next area and under the ramp (where the shotgun is placed in multiplayer).

    I created this video to help:

    Hope this helps.

    metallicafan459Agree with the last post - for a guide it should outline the fastest way for that specific achievement. You should improve the guide to state you can start from Rally Point Charlie

    Count FlandersPerhaps I should enter a new solution with "Load up Rally Point Charlie, drive to the Comms array..." and enjoy my sweet sweet karma wink

    S P 4 C E YYeah both of these can be done from Rally Point Charlie - once on easy, and once on legendary. Takes 5 minutes
