Just turn on IWHBYD skull while playing through the game and this will unlock sooner or later on any difficulty. You may not even hear the grunt talking when it unlocks. The video below is just so you can hear the flipyap dialogue. Ignore the commentary. I thought it had to be done on legendary.

Edit: Some folks are getting the dialogue and achievement WITHOUT IWHBYD turned on, while others have been struggling both with and without it on, so it appears this may be just very luck-based and not really able to be triggered intentionally. Personally I've always had an easy time getting it to trigger and I always have IWHBYD on, but reports differ on reliability.

Edit: Many people have reported success with Checkpoint Charlie on Sierra 117. Killing a single grunt at a time and pausing a few seconds after each kill, reloading checkpoint if no luck before the last couple to avoid progressing mission. See TPB Maestro's comments below.

AStarfoxGood solution. I'd like to add I obtained this achievement after killing the dude with the gravity hammer on the first level of Halo 3 - 117. This play through was on Normal difficulty.

LifeExpectancyAhh wow thanks man. Seems like this is probably just a random grunt dialogue line when you have IWHBYD skull on. Did you have that skull activated?

I'm surprised it works on Normal though. I tried several times on normal and it wouldnt trigger for me.

Jay InsomniakThis can indeed be done on any level and any difficulty (even easy), the only thing needed is IWHBYD turned on. I personally got it on easy during a par time run, funny thing is I didn't even hear it because my Warthog's gunner was shooting grunts across the map.

LifeExpectancyThanks for the info man! Ill update this when I get home. :-)

Chaotic FiascoJust throwing out that it's possible to get this without IWHBYD turned on. I got it by happenstance on my Master Chief Saga playthrough sometime in the first couple of missions.

VestridePlaying on normal with IWHBYD on, heard the dialog, achievement didn't unlock :(

LifeExpectancyMay have been an XBL issue. XBL was practically down, at least on Xbox One, yesterday evening. I couldn't see friends list or load party chat.
Posted by LifeExpectancy on 02 Dec 14 at 10:57
count023Yea, I heard the dialogue too, on two separate days, no unlock.
Posted by count023 on 02 Dec 14 at 13:28
LifeExpectancyThat's odd. Several people have reported getting the achievement on Normal. I'm at a loss =/

AradorI always have that skull turned on and it popped while I was on easy, was not expecting it
Posted by Arador on 03 Dec 14 at 04:47
LostMantella9yeah I'm having major trouble getting this achievement, played through the campaign 3 times now with the IWHBYD skull on one of those runs was legendary too, didn't get it so decided to load up the covenant on legendary with the IWHBYD skull on, and kept repeating/reloading checkpoint in that same area where he gets it in the video, it's been about 3 hours of this and still no flipyap dialogue. also tried reloading the checkpoint with the hammer guy on sierra 117 for 30mins on normal difficulty but got nothing. I know i'm just having incredibly bad luck but does anyone else know any other area's that might be good? or any other tips that might help the randomness of this?
Posted by LostMantella9 on 11 Dec 14 at 03:37
Im Invisible xI played on easy earlier without IWHBYD on 117, and got the achievement, didn't even know it existed.
Posted by Im Invisible x on 11 Dec 14 at 15:48
EmeraldEmissaryI've gotten a grunt to say this dialogue twice now on two separate levels with the IWHBYD skull on and set to normal and still no achievement. Has anybody had this pop randomly? Extremely frustrating that yet another achievement for this game is screwy!
Posted by EmeraldEmissary on 13 Dec 14 at 21:25
LostMantella9I finally got the dialogue on sierra 117 but didn't receive the achievement, I didn't kill the grunt and listened to the full dialogue too and the dialogue was clear as day, I was practically right next to the grunt, so this achievement is definitely glitchy
Posted by LostMantella9 on 14 Dec 14 at 14:20
WONDERBR34DI've heard it on two different locations clear as day also and it didn't pop for me, at least I'm not the only one
Posted by WONDERBR34D on 17 Dec 14 at 01:20
LifeExpectancyHave any of you that cant get it to pop tried my original method on The Covenant, Legendary, with IWHBYD in the tower?
Posted by LifeExpectancy on 17 Dec 14 at 02:44
LostMantella9I tried the covenant on legendary with the IWHBYD skull for about 3 hours reloading the checkpoint over and over in that tower and couldn't get the dialogue at all. Still gotta do the par scores on halo 3, i'm gonna have the IWHBYD skull on and hopefully I can pick it up in that run. if not guess i'll just have to reply levels with grunts over and over.
Posted by LostMantella9 on 17 Dec 14 at 07:18
Ace AnnihilatesThis is one of the last achievements I need for this game and it won't unlock. I have literally spent hours with IWHBYD on, on every difficulty just killing grunts. I've heard the flipyap dialogue about 8 times now, at least once on each difficulty. I even have it recorded in the theater and upload studio, but the achievement just won't unlock for me. Is there any insight anybody could give me on how the hell to unlock this godforsaken achievement?
Posted by Ace Annihilates on 18 Dec 14 at 21:47
Jay InsomniakI'm assuming its currently broken (for some users at least), you should contact 343i
Posted by Jay Insomniak on 18 Dec 14 at 22:25
LifeExpectancyMaybe it's proximity to the grunt saying the dialogue. How far away from the grunt are you when you hear it Ace??
Posted by LifeExpectancy on 19 Dec 14 at 01:12
Ace AnnihilatesLifeExpectancy. I have been touching the grunt as he said it. One of those times he was flailing his arms around running away from me and I was chasing him. Literally touching his character model the whole dialogue through.

Here a recorded video clip from Upload Studio. I was in the theater so thats why it goes slowmo and third person. But of course the grunt said it while I was actually boosting for it and I went into the theater to record it afterwards.
Posted by Ace Annihilates on 19 Dec 14 at 07:30
ReapingEchoI too can't get this damn achievement to pop. I'ce heard it three times, one on Sierra 117 and twice on The Covenant. I heard whole dialogue in two of them too. Maybe last patch or two broke this achievement for now.
Posted by ReapingEcho on 19 Dec 14 at 14:10
Ace AnnihilatesWell ReapingEcho, what makes me mad is that I can see that the achievement is being actively completed by the people of this site, which means that not everyone is having this problem. A lot of the comments on this solution alone state that most people didn't even know it was an achievement and just unlocked it upon playing the game for fun. I only have like 14 achievements left for this game and its bullshit how I have to actually try and go out of my way, and even when a grunt says the dialogue, i'm still not rewarded this pitiful 5g achievement.
Posted by Ace Annihilates on 19 Dec 14 at 18:45
ReapingEchoI also had problem with the Halo 2 grunt dialogue achievement when me and brother playing coop splitscreen. He just wouldnt talk at all. Then we tried again next day and it finally started talking our first try. Just glitchy random stuff 343 had to add in for luck based achievements.
Posted by ReapingEcho on 20 Dec 14 at 08:54
Shadow 00 FoxI heard the grunt talking distinctly on Sierra 117... no achievement. *sigh*
Posted by Shadow 00 Fox on 21 Dec 14 at 07:35
LostMantella9I still haven't got it either, I was commenting on here a couple of weeks back, haven't been trying as much lately but it just won't unlock for me, I've heard the dialogue now a few times, so I kinder gave up on it for now and have been doing other achievements. its complete bullshit haha
Posted by LostMantella9 on 23 Dec 14 at 03:24
Shadow 00 FoxYep... well, seeing how so many other things have had to be patched, and they're at least working on fixing things actively.. hopefully soon! :-)
Posted by Shadow 00 Fox on 23 Dec 14 at 07:01
Ace AnnihilatesWell I started Halo 3 LASO with 2 of my friends yesterday and right at the beginning of Sierra 117 we were chillin back a bit and the achievement popped while we were killing grunts out of the phantom. All those wasted hours boosting for this achievement with no success and it randomly pops in the first 5 minutes of me playing LASO.

Shadow 00 Foxlaugh clap facepalm

platinumpwnzor@Ace

I wish it would happen for me. I've completed all other halo 3 specific achievements, all with the IWHBYD skull on, and this dialogue just won't show up. I even specifically tried to boost this for several hours with no luck.
Posted by platinumpwnzor on 25 Dec 14 at 05:18
Shadow 00 FoxHmm... I just got it on Sierra 117.... in the part where you have sleeping grunts, I was taking my time killing them all and it suddenly popped. I didn't even hear the dialog. Also, if you select the achievement it takes you to Sierra 117.. not sure if that makes a difference playing that mission?
Posted by Shadow 00 Fox on 25 Dec 14 at 05:34
ReapingEchoWeird I just got flipyap achievement on Sierra 117 without hearing it either. Just decided to check it out after I read these comments on coop with my brother again and it unlocked. Must have been a silent fix on latest update?
Posted by ReapingEcho on 25 Dec 14 at 11:38
LostMantella9trying not to rant to much, but I only need 8 more achievements including this one, played through Sierra 117 with IWHBYD on normal another 7 times today. :S holy crap, this can be hell if your unlucky.
Posted by LostMantella9 on 27 Dec 14 at 10:20
Shadow 00 FoxIf you don't mind this idea, maybe try playing Sierra 117 up to the place where you have the sleeping grunts and then just letting it sit there for an hour or so after killing about half of the enemies?
Posted by Shadow 00 Fox on 27 Dec 14 at 10:42
KexolTry turning off grunt birthday party, that might help if you usually put it on.
Posted by Kexol on 30 Dec 14 at 02:07
ROBBERT DHTFor what's it's worth, I've heard it loads of time w/o any luck the Legendary Covenant, on easy, Sierra 117 on easy and normal with and w/o the IWHBYD skull but I just did Sierra 117 on easy with Thunderstorm, Grunt Birthday Party and IWHBYD, went on to the sleeping grunts as Shadow 00 Fox said, sit by them for a couple of minutes, only hear them talk about Christmas (because it's December? or they always have that in their sleep), but with no luck. So I killed one, sat by another same thing, after 3 grunts I got a checkpoint and I went forward and killed a patrolling grunt. An other grunt says you've killed Yapyap and it popped.
Posted by ROBBERT DHT on 30 Dec 14 at 11:01
ChknFingrsJust got this also playing Sierra 117 on easy, and I didn't hear a thing. Other than the achievement popping! :P
Posted by ChknFingrs on 31 Dec 14 at 06:08
Shadow 00 FoxNice! I'm beginning to wonder, is there a chance that there might be one grunt in every mission that will give the dialog, but it depends on how far away you are? So Sierra 117 is more likely to hear it on because everything is so close...
Posted by Shadow 00 Fox on 31 Dec 14 at 08:12
Arran R WI have a theory having heard the flipyap dialogue multiple times w/o unlocking the achievement. I just earned the achievement today on sierra 117 normal (I set up the level via the Career -> Achievements -> Halo 3 -> Flipyap)

The difference this time from the other times I had heard the dialogue was that they said "You killed YapFlip" and that was all. As we all know from the other dialogue, YapFlip is FlipYap's brother, so perhaps you need to have heard both dialogues for the achievement to pop, both YapFlip and FlipYap.
Posted by Arran R W on 02 Jan 15 at 18:40
Shadow 00 FoxA friend of mine just got this yesterday on Sierra 117 near the first snipers... Flipyap was yellin'..
Posted by Shadow 00 Fox on 02 Jan 15 at 18:47
LostMantella9FINALLY got it on sierra 117 on normal. That was a task and a half, :P i'd heard the dialogue multiple times without it popping and finally today when it did decided to pop I couldn't hear any dialogue at all. this is one random ass achievement haha
Posted by LostMantella9 on 04 Jan 15 at 00:57
BugattiMyJacketSo it just popped for me on Sierra 117 on Normal with IWHBYD skull in the spot where Johnson crosses a little bridge after saying "you want breakfast? You gotta catch it!" I shot a couple grunts in the face with the Covie Carbine and another grunt yelled "you killed yapflip!"
I had also heard the original dialogue a few times, but never "you killed yapflip!", so I definitely think there are 2 dialogue parts to this achievement guys! I think the codes been cracked for this friggin achievement. Only hard part is hearing both dialogues! :)
Posted by BugattiMyJacket on 05 Jan 15 at 04:01
platinumpwnzorThis achievement is so random.

I finally managed to get it on Sierra 117 on normal with only the IWHBYD skull active... on the very first grunt. Another grunt yelled "You killed Yapyap!", and the achievement popped. I never heard any of the dialogues involving Flipyap or Yapflip. It was most definitely "Yapyap" (I checked in Theater.)
Posted by platinumpwnzor on 08 Jan 15 at 04:06
POTMBeen actively trying to get this achievement. After countless reloads of checkpoints from different missions I finally got a grunt to babble on about Flipyap, yet no achievement. Really don't care to go on that grind again..
Posted by POTM on 14 Jan 15 at 09:08
Belly EllyI also heard the fragment several times but the achievement didn't pop so I just played Sierra 117 several times. After hearing ''He killed Yapyap'' I unlocked the achievement, similar to ROBBERT DHT's and platinumpwnzor's comments.

So maybe if its glitchy for you you need to hear this fragment as well!
Posted by Belly Elly on 16 Jan 15 at 13:51
YaziteSame problem for me. I did it on the covenant spot. I heard the dialogue, but the achievement didn't pop. Guess this one is a little glitchy.
Posted by Yazite on 16 Jan 15 at 19:15
LifeExpectancyWhen I did it I was on the covenant like my vid. I got a checkpoint when about half the grunts were dead and one brute as left. After reloading the checkpoint a few times I heard the very long version of the dialogue referring to both flipyap and yapflip just like the vid and the ach popped. FWIW.
Posted by LifeExpectancy on 17 Jan 15 at 02:38
LifeExpectancyOne brute *was* left. I reloaded the checkpoint and killed him and 1-2 grunts a few times and got the achievement with the dialogue.
Posted by LifeExpectancy on 17 Jan 15 at 02:39
POTMHeard it 4 times now with no achievement. Yep..
Posted by POTM on 02 Feb 15 at 00:35
dingleingusjust farmed the room in the video for about 30 minutes. finally heard it but no achievement. maybe i wasn't standing right next to him or something? i could hear everything clearly and was trying to run in circles around all the grunts but still no luck. boo.
Posted by dingleingus on 04 Feb 15 at 03:28
Shadow 00 Fox^^my thoughts are to play Sierra 117... and replay the part where the sleeping grunts are, killing grunts slowly... it's frustrating, but that's where I got mine. I think it's just a matter of time, but as some people said, there might be more than one part of dialog you need and Sierra 117 seems to be good for it.
Posted by Shadow 00 Fox on 04 Feb 15 at 05:53
POTMHeard it 7 times now. I've tried that Sierra 117 spot without any luck whatsoever. The grunts usually don't say anything at all.
Posted by POTM on 05 Feb 15 at 00:22
POTM11 times. I don't know what the secret is but seeing all of the Today's under the Recent Winners list is extremely aggravating..
Posted by POTM on 06 Feb 15 at 01:24
Shadow 00 FoxYour's doesn't show as completed in game but just no achievement, does it?
Posted by Shadow 00 Fox on 06 Feb 15 at 08:17
POTMShows it being locked like any other. I usually check if it's the 'Done Unlocking!' phase whenever I hear it.
Posted by POTM on 07 Feb 15 at 00:39
POTM13th times the charm, I got it. Normal difficulty, Sierra 117, Alpha Point C. Definitely didn't sound like the long dialogue I normally heard, it was a very quick line. I made a clip if anyone cares I can upload it.
Posted by POTM on 07 Feb 15 at 01:21
LifeExpectancyAwesome P glad you finally got it.
Posted by LifeExpectancy on 07 Feb 15 at 02:23
Shadow 00 Foxclapclap You got it!!! Hmm, Alpha Point C, that sounds like where I got mine, but don't know for sure. About the quick dialog, that seems to be what is needed.
Posted by Shadow 00 Fox on 07 Feb 15 at 06:00
POTMAppreciate it Life. Yeah I was reloading the checkpoint from the solution under this one. Re-watching the clip I can hear a grunt saying "You killed Flipyap!" and that's it, popped right afterwards. Unfortunately clips don't show when you unlock an achievement?
Posted by POTM on 07 Feb 15 at 06:05
MERC DDSI freaking hate this achievement and 343. I have heard the dialogue at least 20 times. What a terrible job they have done with this game and the achievement is a perfect example of how terrible 343 is. I'm giving up on this!!!
Posted by MERC DDS on 08 Feb 15 at 06:13
dingleingusgot this after reloading this checkpoint maybe 6-8 times. didn't hear the dialogue but it did pop. didn't kill them in any particular order or anything.
Posted by dingleingus on 09 Feb 15 at 00:53
POTMAh forgot Trueachievements stores your clips now. Well it's the most recent Halo clip on my page if anyone wants to hear the unique dialogue that popped the achievement. It's the second attempt in the clip.
Posted by POTM on 10 Feb 15 at 22:29
Just SweezyNo Flipyap for me..
Posted by Just Sweezy on 27 Feb 15 at 02:52
MERC DDSUpdate didn't help at all. Still can't get the achievement to unlock :(
Posted by MERC DDS on 04 Mar 15 at 18:37
ukBp RoyJust got it on Sierra 117 on normal with IWHBYD and Grunt Birthday Party on. I was just running through killing everything. It popped when I was killing grunts right after the Jackal forest. I had a lot of trouble before the update, but this was my first go after the update, could've been it or just coincidence?
Posted by ukBp Roy on 06 Mar 15 at 00:33
D3V1Lz ASSAZZ1NSo might seem like a dumb question. is flipyap a red or yellow grunt, like don't kill the red ones or something?
Posted by D3V1Lz ASSAZZ1N on 08 Mar 15 at 11:04
LifeExpectancyIt's random unfortunately mate. There doesn't seem to be any truly consistent way to get it to pop the achievement even if you hear the dialogue, which doesn't seem tied to any one grunt.
Posted by LifeExpectancy on 08 Mar 15 at 13:44
Twenty20 SEIm still trying to get this achievement and its really infuriating me. i dont listen to my games often, i often get bored of repetitive sounds in games after a few weeks so i often watch something online whilst i game so i cant say for certain if i ever got the dialogue but the amount i have played it should have. it would be nice if this was more of an easter egg based like thirsty grunt than luck based
Posted by Twenty20 SE on 26 Apr 15 at 00:22
DaeryoonI got this finally after trying many times. I got this on Normal in Checkpoint Charlie of Sierra 117. I tried over 20 times on the first checkpoint after the Quid Pro Quo scene, killing the grunts one at a time and waiting for dialogue, and then I moved on out of frustration. I reloaded the next checkpoint a few times on the bridge before it happened, but I never heard the dialogue. I headshotted the grunts on the bridge one at a time and it popped.
Posted by Daeryoon on 26 May 15 at 12:54
LifeExpectancyGlad you finally got it Daery. I've experimented with it a little more since, and I still seem to get it rather reliably doing the exact method in the video I made originally. I haven't tried on lower difficulties, but playing on Legendary I've popped the achievement on multiple accounts now.

Either I'm just extremely lucky, or it has something to do with the difficulty, number of grunts nearby, or manner with which they're killed. I'm at a loss with the luck/random factor so many are experiencing as mine has been pretty consistent (less than 5 tries per account).
Posted by LifeExpectancy on 26 May 15 at 13:26
TPB MaestroThis is how I just got it:
Career-Achievements-Halo 3- Flipyap. The only skull I had on was IWHBYD and I played on normal from the start of the level. I used 2 controllers, one was another account which just stood still. I got to the end part and killed every brute and jackal and also the marines so they don't kill anything. Then I was left with about 10-20 grunts on the side that Johnson is being held. Got a checkpoint by the bridge and just threw grenades over and was getting like 6 kills a time and had to restart checkpoint just 3 times after MONTHS of trying to get this!
Posted by TPB Maestro on 13 Jun 15 at 02:12
LifeExpectancyAwesome Maestro glad you got it! Yeah multiple users have said that once they had a checkpoint with lots of grunts they just kept restarting it and killing a few and it popped. Seems that's the best way if you're struggling.
Posted by LifeExpectancy on 13 Jun 15 at 02:53
Melman V2I finally got this after hours of trying at the dam and the area where they are asleep I tried on Easy, Normal and Legendary but it didn't work, so I thought I would give it a go on Heroic (first time I had played Halo 3 on this difficulty) and it popped just after rally point Bravo. So maybe play through the level on every difficulty I always had IWHBYD on
Posted by Melman V2 on 24 Aug 15 at 16:31
MajimaActualI just got this using TBPO Maestro's method.

I went to Career > Achievements > Halo 3 > Flipyap just like TBP Maestro. The menu chose Difficulty = Normal for me and turned the IWHBYD skull (it's possible that difficulty/skull setting was saved from a previous session though).

I played through the level normally going for five unrelated achievements (Blind skull, Iron skull, the 3 Missing Link cheevos) and then it popped randomly during a battle with grunts in the middle of the level - I did not hear any special dialogue but it popped anyway.

This was AFTER almost 60+ minutes of boring grinding at a Sierra 117 checkpoint, killing grunts over and over and successfully listening to the "Nipple Academy" speech twice and the "You killed yapyap" line once with no achievement. When the achievement finally popped I didn't hear any dialogue.

So I think there's two possibilities:

1) The achievement may be glitched - and given 343's record with MCC I would believe this.

2) Maybe no one in the world knows the requires to unlock this achievement yet. If we assume the achievement is not glitched, then too many people are unlocking this randomly and too many people are hearing actual Flipyap dialogue without encountering any achievement. I wonder if it's possible the true solution for this achievement is not revealed yet.... Heh. Imagine if everyone unlocking this achievement is unknowingly performing some specific sequence of events vital to unlocking the achievement.
Posted by MajimaActual on 29 Oct 15 at 14:59
ShadowEchelon91I did the same as TPB Maestro. Two controllers (so Arbiter won't kill anything), clear everything out of the end of the level. Don't free Johnson. Then just slowing start killing one at a time. Should have about 20 grunts. I got it first try this method, after trying reloading checkpoints, etc, for almost an hour.
Posted by ShadowEchelon91 on 21 Dec 15 at 14:31
GR1N REAP3RDid TPB Maestro Method. Got the achievement on my 8th reload randomly with no dialogue.
Posted by GR1N REAP3R on 05 Feb 16 at 12:13
LifeExpectancyGonna edit this solution when I get home to put his method in. Good work guys!
Posted by LifeExpectancy on 05 Feb 16 at 12:16
Krnl SilverTrying Maestros method but as of now no luck cry. Reloaded checkpoint about 10 times and nothing. Also the problem is as youre killing grunts, you sometimes get another checkpoint further in so now you have less grunts to kill.
Posted by Krnl Silver on 05 Feb 16 at 21:40
Krnl SilverThis achievement is so stupid. I gave up about a year ago trying to get it and now that I'm trying it again, I can see why I skipped it in the first place. I hate these type of achievements that involve luck and no skill angry
Posted by Krnl Silver on 05 Feb 16 at 21:45
PunderstatementI finally got this ridiculous achievement. I'd tried boosting it many times and had finally given up and just loaded up the game on normal solo with IWHBYD on. It popped as I was shooting grunts right at Rally point Charlie of Seirra 117.
Posted by Punderstatement on 11 Mar 16 at 07:56
MasterCranderI got this Maestro's way but I paid attention to some more details of my experience in case we can put a full strategy together.

⋅I used 2 controllers
⋅Kept the Arbiter at the cutscene ridge.
⋅Killed all enemies before bridge. (Including grunts)
⋅Killed all non-grunt enemies at bridge and post-bridge from before the bridge begins and in upper room at the beginning of the bridge. This seemed important because the grunts kept retreating further and I didn't get checkpoint until I had many stacked up.
⋅I gained checkpoint mid-bridge with only (or mostly) grunts left Johnson-side.
⋅I stayed to the back corner just after the bridge ends and took then out one at a time until the cheevo popped.

Notes on killing grunts [all encounters]:

⋅I killed them 1 at a time, always front-most grunt first
⋅Killed them front of the group to the back
⋅Headshot whenever possible
⋅Spread kills about 2-3 seconds minimum apart when able
⋅Last dialogue I heard was "You killed YapYap!"

I was able to get this first try after getting to the bridge checkpoint. I have heard some of the other potentially FlipYap related dialogue in other attempts so I may have been further progressed than most.

Good luck out there!

TPB MaestroWow, didn't know quite a few of you got it from the way I did it haha! I really hope everyone else can get it too, it's a cool achievement but also a bullshit one because of the amount of luck you need!
Posted by TPB Maestro on 28 Dec 16 at 07:46
x1001x PuppysThank you TPB Maestro!!! Took me an hour and a half to get this stupid fucking achievement. What's worse is I triggered the dialog at the broken bridge and listened to the entire thing but didn't get it, had to do it all over a second time. This time it popped, but I had a second controller signed in, which was the only thing different. Godspeed and good luck to everyone else, it's 1000% luck to get this.

ZEBRA COMMANDRGot it first try on easy!
Posted by ZEBRA COMMANDR on 19 Jun 20 at 17:54
GRAND NOBLEI just got it! On Normal. Sierra 117, Charlie checkpoint. IWHBYD skull on.

After the cutscene. Took about 6-8 reloads. I would kill 1 grunt and wait a few seconds, then kill another. I made sure not to kill any grunts if no other grunts were around (make sure they could see it). Trying to 'bait' them to follow me to see dead grunts just didn't work.

The time it finally happened, I had only killed 2 grunts.
