For PC players, there is a sneaky workaround to make each of these achievements muuuch easier, one very similar to the workaround for the LASO and Legendary Speedrun achievements. For each level, do the following:

*Enable whatever mods or cheats you want by launching the game with Anti-Cheat enabled (or "mod mode," as I call it). You can't earn achievements in mod mode, but it will still save your mission checkpoints.
*Start the given level on whatever difficulty level you want (I went with Legendary because I was also going for the "Legendary in under 3 hours" achievement). Be sure to turn scoring or time on.
*Run through the level as quickly as you can only killing what you really need to.
**The mod I was using gave me infinite shields, ammo, and let me kill most enemies instantaneously, so it was not difficult in the slightest. I won't link to the mod here, so all I'll say is that google is your friend.
*During the ending cutscene, press cn_start to bring up the menu (this will pause the cutscene, you don't want to skip it), and select Save/Quit.
*Close the game and relaunch it with anti-cheat enabled (which will let you earn achievements).
*Select "Resume"
*Once the level loads, you should be taken to the postgame carnage report (which is why you need time enabled), and the achievement for that level should unlock here.

Do this for all nine levels (Noble Actual, Epilogue, and Lone Wolf don't count towards this) and the achievement is yours. If you take some extra time to kill extra enemies, you can easily get the Par Score achievements as well. It really is as simple as that.

This is very much an exploit with the way "mod mode" works on the PC version, but given that you still have to play through the levels and do them quickly, it is still well within the site's rules (and Microsoft's ToS). Mind you, a similar solution regarding the LASO achievement was vetted by the site mods. If you want to do these the traditional way, go for it, this is primarily for those of us who don't have the time or patience for grinding these out one at a time.

Edit: Alright people, you've worn me down. Here's what I recommend using:
TTerBNZMind linking to mod u used?

DarkWingSpartan@TTerBNZ I would, but I don't want to get in trouble with the site mods. Just google "halo mcc pc infinite shield" and you'll probably find what I was using.

KanchanaburiDo the par times all have to be in the same difficulty? I have some on easy and a few on legendary during my 3 hour run, but I have all the par time achievements and this has not unlocked.

DarkWingSpartan@Kanchanaburi That's not supposed to be a requirement. I assume you completed Lone Wolf and both cutscene missions?

KanchanaburiYeah. I had several achievements glitch on me but finally unlocked after clearing my save and re doing the requirements. FInally got it after redoing a par score on New Alex with a better time. Thanks.
