This requires you to kill a golden-armored Ranger elite that spawns randomly within each level.

I recommend the second mission Winter Contingency, and splatter him with your truck. This can be done on easy difficulty.

NOTE: Only 1 BOB spawns every mission, and their location is random depending on its spawn points.

Update 2 (January 8th, 2020):
Since the the channel who posted the two guides I've linked is unfortunately deleted, here's an alternative guide for finding a BOB in Winter Contingency.
DcupsOfJusticeI killed a white armor elite on ONI:Sword Base Legendary solo after you return to the start area to go into the building. Appears that it can be any color elite.

LilYuriDeviLThanks guide worked well I had to get out of the truck tho.
Since the elite didn't come out of the house.
Also in the guide he said load of rally point alpha which am sure he meant to say ally point bravo.

GR34TD3STR0Y3RThis is bugged for me (win 10).
I did this method, spawned the 2nd time for me. Didn't pop. Did Makka Guides method, first try. Didn't pop.

Edit: I figured out how to fixed the bugged achievements for me. I had 2 that were 100% bugged, maybe 3, but 2 for sure. I played on PC and both were not pop. I could never get them to work on PC. I tried console and did not work, but the only fix I found worked, worked on console, and it worked both times.

This is from "I'm sorry Dave" "try Vrruumm's suggestion: "I set my console to offline. Deleted my local save. Loaded up the game, then redid the ADS in a custom game. Turned my console back online. Connected to XBL. Closed out the game. Loaded the game back up. Critical! Loaded the older save. Achievement popped while syncing save. You might just have to delete the local save and resync it, but the way I explained is the way I got it to pop."

I didn't know what he meant when he says load the older save. Close Halo down. You may need to do it twice or even reset the console. The first time I did this no choice popped for me and I had no idea what Vrruumm was talking about. When you log back into the Xbox live, close Halo down and load back up (maybe two or more times) you should get a choice which data to sync to with, newer or older. Choose older.

ClassierPompanoThe sync method 100% works. It may take a minute or two at the main menu to pop so just wait it out.

Daelus1I did it twice on Easy and it didn't pop. Did it again on Normal and it popped as soon as I killed him.

AlabasteriosI did it multiple times on different level and different difficulties, the achievement does not pop. Is it bugged?
