    This requires you to kill a golden-armored Ranger elite that spawns randomly within each level.

    I recommend the second mission Winter Contingency, and splatter him with your truck. This can be done on easy difficulty.

    NOTE: Only 1 BOB spawns every mission, and their location is random depending on its spawn points.

    Since the the channel who posted the two guides I've linked is unfortunately deleted, here's an alternative guide for finding a BOB in Winter Contingency.

    Daelus1I did it twice on Easy and it didn't pop. Did it again on Normal and it popped as soon as I killed him.

    AlabasteriosI did it multiple times on different level and different difficulties, the achievement does not pop. Is it bugged?

    For What About Bob, you must kill one of the game’s golden Ranger-class Elites, referred to as Bobs. These secret enemies spawn at random at certain locations throughout the game and immediately run away from the battle, disappearing after a few seconds. There are many in the game, with seven just in the Winter Contingency mission alone. Load up Winter Contingency - Rally Point Bravo on any difficulty (though I would suggest normal or higher). There are three that can spawn at the first settlement you reach after Rally Point Bravo (the one that you need to go into the building and clear out the Covenant), though only one of the three will spawn during any given playthrough. Starting from the rally point, hop into the transport vehicle and drive straight through the opening in between the buildings at this first encounter. Hop out of the vehicle and quickly go up the hill to the left so that you’re looking down over the rear exit. If any of these three Bobs spawned it will come running out the rear of the opening briefly after your arrival. Drop in behind it and assassinate it for the kill and the achievement.

    I got this achievement on the level "ONI Sword Base" when you are returning to the area you first started in. The level progresses forward but instead the Elite will run back towards where you spawned. This does not have to be done on co-op and as you can see the achievement loads up for me later on in the level (was about 1-2 minutes later).

    I created a video to help:

    Hope this helps.

    Load up "Lone Wolf" on easy and start assassinating elite and grunts. After about 5-10 minutes, golden armor elites will pop up in waves. Kill the golden Ranger Elite and you will get the achievement.

    This achievement is currently glitched in your favor, it popped for me last night when I killed a random elite officer (the ones in orange armor) in one of the stations in Winter Contingency. You might get lucky and get this without having to kill the golden ranger elite.
