    You can pop this without actually having to play a full mission, thankfully. Both the opening cutscene Noble Actual and the Epilogue count as full missions, so "loading them up" on Legendary difficulty with three of the scoring skulls on will make this a gimme.

    snake42069i turned all skulls on, no scoring, played noble actual (1st "mission") and skipped it when i could. When the first cutscene of "Winter Contingency" started to play, i got the achievement.

    KirbySurfingI did "Winter Contingency" with Famine, Fog and Tough Luck, didn't get the achievement since I also had Grund Birthday Party and IWHBYD skulls on as well. So 3 scoring skulls together with non-scoring ones don't work, if someone looks here and has any confusion about that!

    You can set any 3 scoring skulls and get this on the first mission Noble Actual.

    However this 'mission' is just a skipable cutscene so you can pop this achievement right away

    MathGuy42Using the LASO playlist didn't work for me. I had to start Noble Actual through the Missions menu.

    TheDonSimeoni@MathGuy42, this looks to be because the non-scoring skulls (Cowbell / Grunt B-Day Party / IWHBYD) disable it, all of which are turned on while playing LASO.

    This could be the easiest achievement in the entire MCC. Basically, you select the Noble Actual "mission", put it on Legendary difficulty, equip 3 skulls from the scoring category and then skip the ensuing cut-scene.
