This achievement is for killing 1,000 Skirmishers in Halo: Reach. There is also an achievement for killing 1,00 Skirmishers which you'll get naturally as you make progress on this. This method will explain how to grind out all 1,000 kills while also making progress towards a couple of other achievements.

First, you'll want to head to Firefight in the main menu. Then select Custom Firefight. Using these settings you should be able to setup an ideal solo Firefight for grinding these 1,000 kills.

Map: Corvette
Game Type: Score Attack

Options -
Wave Properties:
-Put Round 1, 2, 3 and Bonus properties to Skirmishers and ONLY Skirmishers.
-Turn off all skulls for all waves including the bonus wave.
-Turn off "Uses Dropship" for all waves EXCEPT for the bonus wave.
-Set the Bonus Wave Duration to 2 minutes.

Wave Limit: Ten Sets
Turn Count: None
Time Limit: I put 60 minutes, but you can put it to whatever you'd like.

Scenario Settings-
Hazards: Disabled
Weapon Drops: Enabled
Ammo Crates: Enabled

Spartan Settings > BaseTraits > Shields and Health -
Damage Resistance: Invulnerable

Weapons and Damage-
Infinite Ammo: Enabled
Weapon Pickup: Enabled

You can mess with the movement and sensors if you want to, but it's not necessary. However, leave the damage alone as you'll also be going for progress towards the 2,500 matchmaking headshot achievement.

Difficulty: Normal

Now start the game and get to killing. It shouldn't take long at all to hit the 100 kills to earn this achievement. I highly recommend you pickup a Needle Rifle dropped by one of the skirmishers and start going for as many headshots as possible so you can get a ton of progress towards Aim for the Head.

Very early on within the first couple of waves you should have also popped:

EYEHUNTER 42I'm not earning progress towards Double Trouble. I think today's patch fixed that.

KanchanaburiI also didn’t earn for double or aim for the head

JDuke705The double clearly states Matchmade game which a custom game is not. Remove that piece as it is incorrect.
