You can pop this without actually having to play a full mission, thankfully. Both the opening cutscene Noble Actual and the Epilogue count as full missions, so "loading them up" on Legendary difficulty with three of the scoring skulls on will make this a gimme.
DarkWingSpartanJust so people are aware, this achievement appears to be bugged (or at least work differently) on the PC version. I did this process with Noble Actual, the Epilogue, and even Lone Wolf (I haven't attempted it with any "real" missions yet because I'm scared) and it didn't work on any of them.

QuinnGTL@DarkWingSpartan its bugged for me on PC and on xbox. I have tried all 3 you have on both and am attempting a "real" mission now.

I did the mission "nightfall" with 3 scoring skulls and got nothing. :') it's a glitched achievement.

skav00vieMake sure you have the 3 non-scoring skulls turned off. Having any of these turned on seem to void the achievement requirements.

DarkWingSpartanI've since tried this several times in other missions (including a couple in the LASO playlist where you can't use the non-scoring skulls) with no luck.

Tozi TiberiusCan confirm this works. Turn on the first three scoring skulls and turn OFF every non-scoring skull. Popped as soon as I skipped the opening cut scene.

PhillyCh3zSt3akSo I did this with turning the first three scoring skulls on, but also turned on scoring before starting the game. Did this while on PC, definitely works.

C64 MatYep - make sure the scoring HUD is ON, and don't activate any of the three non scoring skulls (Cowbell, Grunts Birthday Party and IWHBYD)

FroZeNSouLI can confirm it still works.
Just did on "Noble Actual" > Score > Legendary > I put 9 skulls on, except for Blind & 3 non-scoring skulls on the right. (When i put them on before it didnt work) started and skipped cutscene. Moment later got the achievement.

DragonFangDanWasn't working for me then I read FroZeNSouL's method and worked first try. One of the non-scoring skulls must deactivate the achievement or something.

xRaeZZoRxCan confirm, it works on PC (non-steam).
Had 3 random scoring skulls on and did not skip the entire cut scene (Noble Actual).

snake42069i turned all skulls on, no scoring, played noble actual (1st "mission") and skipped it when i could. When the first cutscene of "Winter Contingency" started to play, i got the achievement.

DanSh0wSt0pperCan confirm this still pops

KirbySurfingI did "Winter Contingency" with Famine, Fog and Tough Luck, didn't get the achievement since I also had Grund Birthday Party and IWHBYD skulls on as well. So 3 scoring skulls together with non-scoring ones don't work, if someone looks here and has any confusion about that!
