    This achievement can pop at different times, mine popped around half way through my corporal rank after a match on firefight. If it doesnt pop straight away dont worry as it will eventually.

    You will know when it pops though as a screen will flash up and you will see the corporal rank take the place of your recruit rank.

    It shouldnt take that long though to eventually pop up as by the fourth campaign mission on normal you should be close to filling up the bottom bar on the pause menu. And if you want it to pop extra quick then take part in the online or as i said before firefight as you earn more experiance for stuff like this.

    To the morons voting negatively on this why? As b30118218 has clearly pointed out there is no cheating/glitched way to do this but play the game so as of the 14th do so and find out for yourself, rather than jumping to conclusions. If you have merely voted negatively because he got the game before the release date grow the f*** up!

    This achievement requires you to earn a total of 10,000 cR. You will get credits for doing just about anything in the game and you will likely earn this by the time you beat the campaign.

    If you don't want to do that you can go into matchmaking select Cooperative and then Score Attack. If you choose Gruntpocalypse and play it through fairly well you should get about 1,000 cR each time. It only takes about 12 minutes and it's super easy.

    Also, you should check every day for the new challenges, they usually are pretty easy and will net you some extra cR pretty quickly on top of everything else you're earning!

    TopherXPwnsThat's very strange. I just checked your stats on Bungie and there seems to be no reason why you don't have it. The best I can suggest is try to keep leveling and hopefully it'll pop up on your next rank up.

    Torhu HybridDoes it pop the moment you get enough experience or is it only once you've gone into the Armory? Plus I was playing in Multiplayer.

    TopherXPwnsYou can try going into the armory and buying something but I don't know if it will help. It certainly won't hurt your chances. Mine popped as soon as it said rank up in a post game screen.
