    This will help you get all of the metagame scoring achievements.

    The following skulls are required:
    Tough Luck, Fog, Famine, Thunderstorm

    Play each level on Normal difficulty with those skulls enabled. Now play through as fast as you can (time multipliers are VERY important) while dying as little as possible of course. You should be able to very easily get the required score.

    Good luck!

    BasanakinI would strongly recommend to NOT turn Famine on. It ends up you searching for weapons and picking them up too many times, I played without that skull, went for headshots, and even after dying many times, i got over 30.000 points.

    Famine frustrated me, and apparantly, i dont need it at all.

    d3vilsNightIt was easy with Famine. I even remember that from 4.5 years ago!

    I got this one by using the Fog/Catch/Tough Luck skulls while playing on normal difficulty. I had well over 20k points at the end of the level and actually died a few times during the process. So, just have fun and try to not die as much as it takes points away from your total.

    mantledFeanorNLThanks for the suggestion to play on normal. Easy enough with Iron, Fog, Tilt and Mythic on. I did not even really need to use Iron either since i got to 72k...

    Silver MitsukiIf somebody is having difficulties (maybe because is not good at FPS me) I suggest to follow JonSnow's walktrough for finding the 2 "sniper rifles" and playing with the Tough Luck, Fog, Catch and Thunderstorm skulls;

    DO NOT use the Famine skull if you are not a good player, or you'll probably waste all your sniper rifle bullets

    Catch skull makes Grunts (the short aliens) throw at you a lot of plasma grenades, but I assure you that this won't be a problem until the last part of the level if you

    1. pick up the 2 plasma grenades that they ALWAYS drop and use them to kill large groups of enemies (like the one that come out from the FIRST airship, the one near the silver skull for being more clearer), this allows you to get lot of points without constantly aiming for headshots
    2. headshot kill most of the enemies in the last part of the level (part 3 of JonSnow's walktrough); watch out for near Grunts right after you reach that part because they can reach you with grenades!

    Again, I'm not very good at FPS and, after playing first with Tough Luck, Fog, Famine and Thunderstorm skulls activated, then just with Tough Luck, Fog and Thunderstorm, the best I was able to achieve was ~14k, but using also the Catch skull I easily reached 28k without even trying :)

    oh, and remember to pick up the Needler, it is really a useful weapon :)
