    At the beginning of the level Floodgate, proceed along the dirt path towards the city. On the roof of the first building to your right, you will see a piece sticking up with red stripes. Aim for that area, and slowly creep forward. The moment you step on the metal ramp, you radio will say "All squads report." You will see a Flood beast appear on the roof in front of the red-striped wall; he will be holding the skull. Shoot him just as he's jumping (using the battle rifle is recommended), and he will drop the skull onto the street below. RB to pick it up, and you're done. This can be a bit tricky, so if you miss or he drops it on the building, just reload your last checkpoint and try again.

    PaleKnightRisesI got real frickin' lucky with this. As soon as the flood brute appeared I just shot his head with the Battle Rifle. He died and pretty much threw the skull towards me instead of dropping it on the roof

    DMThirteenI also got pretty lucky, the skull landed on the opposite building so I threw my grenades up there and the skull fell down.

    Firstly you need to select the Floodgate mission and make sure you have the difficulty set to either Normal, Heroic or Legendary.

    As soon as the mission starts turn right and follow the path into the city, as soon as you reach the sandbags on the steps aim towards the top of the building on the right side of the street.

    One of the Marines will say "All squads report" and then you will see a Flood Combat Form move into sight on the roof. You have to shoot the Flood, making it drop the skull into the street where you can pick it up using RB.

    Using the Battle Rifle is recommended so that you can take advantage of the scope, it is also easier to shoot the Flood whilst it is still on the roof as if you wait until it is in midair it may drop the skull on the roof of the other building making it inaccessible.

    If you miss it just restart the mission and try again. You can see the entire process in the following video (please note that the video is not mine and all credit for it goes to eliteshadowxx).
