Here's how I did it:

Using two controllers (with a second profile logged in), I started an Annex match on Raven Down, 3 rounds with 180 points per round. I chose Raven Down because it is a small map with only two objectives.

Once the match started, I used my second profile (logged in as a Locust, though it doesn't matter which side you choose) to capture the nearest point (sometimes it will spawn right next to one). As soon as the countdown from 60 began, I ran the Locust to the next objective and parked him next to it.

I then used my primary profile (the one needing the achievement) to run over and stand next to the objective being counted down. Once the count got under 5, I crossed the barrier and captured the objective for ~5 points.

Since I left the Locust parked next to the other objective, the next countdown began almost immediately. Once again, when the countdown from 60 started, I ran the Locust back to the other objective. This saves some time, as you have to wait for the countdown to end no matter what, so you might as well set up the next capture.

After a couple of rounds, the Locust was at 175 (or so) points. I then moved him safely out of the way and captured points with my primary profile until I reached 180 total points, winning by 5 (or less). Total time for each 3 round session: about 22 minutes, give or take. Repeat 20 times (can be tedious, so I used my MP3 player to help ease the boredom), and achievement unlocked.

Hope this helps. Send me a PM/Message through Live for more information.

EDIT 8/5/19: Please see DragonYen’s comment about making this a little easier with a lower score and less movement. I’d type it out, but it’s pretty involved. Suffice it to say it’s a good addition.
grasn reloadedThis guide is great! You can also select 120 points per round, this will go much faster and works.

One Eyed TighThanks! Unfortunately, I discovered that 120 point rounds work AFTER I was done, LOL. I was able to employ it towards the latter end of my quest for "This Is Annex," and it works.

Thanks for the feedback!

DragonYen(thumb up) I'm doing this right now... the only "change" I've made is... that I take the main account to the first truck, and get 1-4 points, then capture it with the other account, then I put the main guy on the other truck. Since Raven Down has only two rings... you'll get :
Main : 4 pts - Alt : 56 pts.
Second ring will spawn (at main player) + 60 -- total of 64
Third ring (at alt player) + 60 -- total of 116
Fourth ring (at main player) + 60 -- total of 124
Fifth ring (at alt player) + 60 -- total of 176 (not enough to win)
Sixth ring (at main player) + 60 [56 technically] = 180 - win by 4.

And you only have to move characters at the very beginning.

And as you said, this way should count toward "This is Annex" as well. However you could do the same thing with 120 pts -- it just ends at the 4th ring instead of the 6th ring. I'm off doing other things (like typing this) and will hear the "alarm" when the alt player gets close to the win. Then I have one more minute before I need to head over and start the next round.

One Eyed Tigh@DragonYen: VERY good point. Never thought of that, but then again, I was winging this. :)

Dr MartyVoted down since you don't have to go to 180. And movement is not as efficient as it could be.
Despite acknowledging this the author has not updated.

One Eyed TighThat’s what the comments are for. However, I will update the solution.
