    Load up mission start on ONI sword base with cowbell on. Immediatly run up the ramp to your right and kill the elite, then sprint past everyone else, trying not to kill anyone until you get to the little garage like place with the target designator. Pick it up, and run into cover and keep just running into the wall to trigger a checkpoint. Now, call an airstrike right outside the doors, where you just ran from. You can get 10-15 heavy weapons kills this way. Reload checkpoint and repeat. You should get silver in Campaign Splash Damage 10 minutes.

    If you vote down at least tell why.
    Thanks to W1LLYMAN for bringing my attention that I did not name the commendation.

    COLLOSUS5172I’ve tried all your solutions for campaign on Oni, and firefight Gruhtpocalypse and my numbers don’t change. Is the server done? Is the achievement broken?

    ItsAshRowleyI'm just doing this method now and the only other comment I would add to this is to make sure you're playing online.

    When I started this, I was playing offline and my kill count wasn't working; connected online and it works like a charm.

    Commendations in Reach are like challenges you do over time in campaign, matchmaking and firefight matchmaking.
    I would recommend that you do one in campaign, because there are enemies everywhere and it's faster. I actually found that Firefight works pretty well for this too.
    You should get this eventually from just playing normally.

    You can check your progress in game under Service Record - Commendations.
    You can also check your progress and other stats over at Bungie.net. This requires an account however.

    Here's the progression list and what you're awarded with like you wanted:
    Iron rank (1 bar): rewards 100 cR
    Bronze rank (2 bars): rewards 600 cR
    Silver rank (3 bars): rewards 1200 cR
    Gold rank (4 bars): rewards 2400 cR
    Onyx rank (black bars): rewards 4800 cR
    All credit for this list goes to Curtieson.

    LavoinI don't see where the negative votes come from either, but I'm glad for all the positive votes and that this helped people.

    a rabid fuzzleI still don't know why this achievement is for Silver... Gold is better, I mean, we pay for Xbox LIVE GOLD right?

    LavoinYou can check your commendation progress both in game and over at bungie.net. You'll need an account for the latter though.

    I found the quickest commendation to get to Silver was the one for headshots in Firefight Matchmaking. It requires 500 total.

    Just play score attack and choose the gruntpocalypse scenario if you have the option. Waves of grunts come at you and you can headshot them in one shot (two if they have a mask on). Chances are you will already have a lot of headshots if you have done the 15k in score attack achievement.

    If you play through the campaign a couple of times you could get the campaign headshots up as well.

    If you intend to get all of the other achievements in the game, there is no point going out of your way to get this, you will get plenty of silvers by the time you get all of the other achievements.

    VIOLENTAEGLAECAI found it easier on Beachhead, if you use the top balcony of the building all the Grunts spawn in front of you, some do get behind and come up the stairs but if you keep an ear open you can hear the doors open next to the bottom of the stairs as they pass.
