This is a pretty easy achievement. For starters, play only by yourself. Play on the Normal difficulty, and put these skulls on: Mythic, Thunderstorm, Catch, Fog. These practically make sure that even if you don't reach 15,000 in-game, the multipliers ensure you get it. Make sure campaign scoring is on.

Now, once you're playing. You want to play in a certain way. If you're driving a warthog, make sure a marine is in your turret. The points for any kill your Marine gets goes to you. Also, try to make specialty kills. These are needler kills, sticks, headshots, anything that's above your average kill. These give you extra points. Go for vehicle kills. They give you a lot of points. Try not to die a lot.

Follow these points and you'll get the achievement guaranteed.
SpectreSubZeroFor anyone looking at this achievement, skulls really aren't needed. I've consistently made over 15,000 before multipliers on the levels. On this particular level with the time multiplier and skulls it came out to 34,500. Over kill considering you just need 15k. So why use skulls and make it more difficult? My suggestion is trying playing normal with no skulls and kill everything!

yossarianojust a small but important correction, the skulls act as multipliers against each kill, not as stated above where they come into play at the end tally. It is just the time bonus multiplier which is applied against your final score.

EthigyUsed the same three skulls (Tough Luck, Famine, Fog) for every mission and it worked great.

Lazy with StyleTough Luck, Catch, Fog, Famine and Thunderstorm on normal difficulty. Time plays no role, finished in slightly less than an hour, took my time hijacking wraiths and got 29,500 points without time multiplier. More would have been possible if I killed my allies who steal kills of course. Died 4-5 times. Lost Xbox Live connection so its possible to get these achievements offline.
