    Difficulty: Easy
    All Skulls but blind (Kind of handy just to see your shields)

    At start find a nice open area and kill the grunts with DMR headshots run to the elite/s melee once then try to get behind him and assassinate him(get used to doing this)
    keep doing this to every elite that comes up to you until the General Elites start coming(Yellow big fellas)
    Once these Generals show up just keep trying to chain assassinations and get one of their swords, keep an eye on your shields if they are low just get a hit or two in with the sword and then continue with the assassinating.
    This method will take a while so maybe have a small break here and there and after you have over 150,000 points let the elites....

    Good Luck

    edit: there are barrels around the place so you the area you have chose has them... stand back and shoot them a couple of times or it could be you also restarting because of them.

    note: you can try it on normal for more score but I found the elite ultras would be able to down your shields a little bit too fast to be able to melee them for shields.

    Here is a video if you need, shouts to the General, go and check out some of his other vids while you're at itsmile

    Easy - all skulls on, EXCEPT blind - mythic - cowbell

    This is a guide if you re going at it Solo. (added a video since there wasnt one)
    * Off the spawn grab the drop shield.
    * Kill covenant until Gold elites start spawning
    * Get a sword and use just swords for the remainder of the mission
    * Treat this mission as if its a Doom game. Always keep moving and dealing damage. Keep meleeing even if your sword is depleted (until you pick up another one)
    * If a sword elite is present, you kill him FIRST
    * If your shields are below 60%, dont risk it, pop a bubble and let them rush you
    * Dont forget to clear the plasma nades on the ground. I almost died halfway into the mission.
    * Keep a concussion as a secondary so that you dont accidentaly pick them up instead of swords.
    * The initial spawn area is elevated, therefore imho a pretty good area to stay and fight. Just clear any explosives first.

    With a little bit of patience you will complete this in about an hour. I took small breaks during the run. Pausing was a big plus.

    Both guides above are very good and useful but seeing how it is still very tough to get I thought I would share how I got it. Easy difficulty with all skulls except blind and cowbell. At the start you need to destroy the two turrets near the start point to prevent the elites from getting on them. After you do that head towards the drop shield, along the way blow up all the exploding barrels to prevent a needless death from happening. As for where you will be setting up and getting the kills, I used the area directly beneath the turrets as I was only shot at by the wraiths when I jumped up or got to far away from the area. Before the elite generals show up your goal is to kill every grunt you can to prevent them from turning into suicide ones and blowing up directly on top of you while you are in the middle of getting kills. Once you run out of ammo pick up a plasma pistol as I tried using the sword and other weapons but couldn’t get hits fast enough. The spot also limits the amount of elites rushing you to about maybe six at a time which will take longer but it is a lot safer. Took me over a hour but did it first try doing it this method. Keep trying and you will get it.

    I NVIII I's guide is solid, I'll just post what I did as I made small tweaks after several attempts.

    Difficulty: Easy Solo
    (Being able to pause was super helpful)

    Skulls: All Scoring Skulls
    (Blind Skull removing my gun/HUD helped my vision a lot. Do NOT turn cowbell on)

    Settings: All Look Sensitivities were maxed to better dance around Elites.

    I found myself playing differently when I could see my health get low, and frantically punching got me killed. I chose to let them punch first 95% of the time. The other times I would have to punch just to break the endless dance or start shield regen inside my Drop Shield.

    Drop Shield is very useful for peace of mind against Wraith shots, Concussion Rifle shots, grenades, and sitting at the front edge will make a Suicide Grunt explode on the other side. There is one on the North/Northeast side of the building in front of you when you spawn. It's blue, by the sniper.

    If you use one particular area (I used the area directly in front of where you spawn. The flat area on the Southwest side of the building, outside.) be mindful that the Catch skull is slowly filling the area with Plasma Grenades from your kills. Throw a grenade of your own at a distance to pop the idle nades and reset the field, or you could get caught in a nasty chain reaction.

    For some extra tiny points I used the Spartan Laser at the West corner of this same building to take out 2 Wraiths in the distance. I also chucked Plasmas at them once the Laser ran out and got a few sticks.

    It took me exactly 49 minutes IGT thanks to the extra points from Blind and I took no big breaks but did use tiny pauses here and there to take a breath for a total of 52 minutes IRL. I failed quite a bit, so don't sweat it if you make it to 100/110/120/130/140K and die.

    If you are fine with a bit of cheating, it's possible to get this on PC with anti-cheat turned off. Just use a mod to get to 150k points, die, and then during the death cutscene, hit save and quit. Load up the PC version with anti-cheat turned on, hit resume, and you'll be able to obtain the achievement.

    Just wanted to add my 2c with my guide.

    Difficulty : Easy
    Options : Competitive Score On
    Skulls : Black Eye, Catch, Famine, Fog, Iron, Thunderstorm, Tilt, Tough Luck, Grunt Birthday & IWHBYD

    First thing I did when spawning was blow up the barrels, then take the turrets off upstairs so they couldn't be used against me.
    Keep executing everything until the sword elites show.
    I would then go under the turret base and hang down there, stabbing enemies and running back.

    Always have a spare sword handy and if the gold elites retreat don't chase them.

    Good luck.

    Using a combination of advice from the guides, I found this to be the best method.

    1. Easy difficulty, all scoring skulls except blind.

    2. Juggle the drop shield pick up back to underneath the starting area (under where the two mounted turrets are). Enemies don't like coming in here, so it makes it a safe place to heal. Pick sprint back up and leave the drop shield down here.

    3. Go back up to the starting area. Once you've cleared out the enemies and the golden generals are spawning, let them melee, then side step and assassinate them. Prioritize sword elites if possible. Don't use a sword - its way too slow and you'll be here all day.

    4. If your shields deplete, sprint around the left side of the turrets and down to your safe space with the drop shield. Pick it up, use it, let it restore your health. Then loop back to the right and start punching to get shields back. Then just resume assassinating elites.

    This method took me about 45 minutes (strongly suggest listening to a podcast or something). If you get decent at it, you can get some nice multikill bonuses which help to speed things up. Sometimes you'll get far too large a group of elites to effectively assassinate - if that happens, either loop around the cliff, or throw a bunch of grenades. They'll dodge/armor lock and give you some space to kill a few.

    Clip below demonstrating where I healed, and the method.

    Difficulty: Easy, all scoring skulls on except blind and mythic

    Quite easy to do Coop in a group of 4, my group did it in 26 minutes, taking mythic off makes the sword more effective if you have a large group of elites to deal with.
