    *Must be done on Normal or harder difficulty*
    This is done on the mission called "Tip of the Spear". You can start at Rally Point Alpha. After you have crossed the bridge with the Warthog, you will hear the AI say that there is a high value target is in the area. An "Elite Zealot". After you go up the stairs and come to a area that you see a turret at the end. Take a left, and this will put you inside of a very large open room. Stay there, and you will see the Elite Zealot come out with a Red Arrow above his head. Kill him quickly and this will be done.

    Thanks to Sidedish120 over at x360a for the description.

    This was actually surprisingly easy to do (on Normal, your mileage may vary on higher levels). As soon as the red marker is shown over the Zealot's head, shoot him with the DMR. 30 seconds later you should have the achievement. If you just stay stationary near the opening you enter the "valley" from, he just rolls back and forth on the far platform. Easy as cake.

    I did this on Legendary, and it was tough, but not ridiculously so. I'd recommend clearing out all the Covenant that you can before you cross the bridge to enter the compound... don't be afraid to use your DMR ammo, the other soldiers will die and leave you some more.
    After you clear out all the stragglers, jump back on your Ghost (which you should have at the start of this checkpoint... assuming you grabbed one earlier) and cross the bridge, then maneuver it through the blockades and up the stairs. I used the Ghost from the bridge all the way to the Zealot, blasting every Covenant I could see. Then, when I reached the Zealot, I had plenty of DMR ammo to blast away. Took about 10 headshots, maybe less.

    Additionally, you'll find a turret discarded just before the Zealot, you can go back and grab it to clear out the rest of the Grunts. It's kind of a fun level... I imagine it's abusively easy on Normal or lower.
