Load up Midnight, Rally Point Bravo. You'll fight through a couple of rooms and down a shaft. (These rooms are some great places to get Watcher kills.) Eventually you'll go through some portals into a room with a lot of Covenant weaponry.

Grab the Gravity Hammer.

During this next section, there are about 6 Knights, 1-2 Watchers and a bunch of crawlers. Go crazy with the Hammer and take everyone down. You're almost guaranteed to get is just by smashing everything in sight.

This is also a great place to earn a few others as well, especially the Crawler and Knight achievements. Grab the Incineration Cannon when you get the Hammer, kill everything, and reload the checkpoint. The medals will also pile up as you get multikills. You should be well on your way to these if you replay it enough (and haven't already gotten them):

Edit: Someone asked for a video of where I'm talking about. I don't have a capture card, but I found this walkthrough.

Rally Point Bravo is about 9:00 in (I think, I'm doing this from memory).
The room with the weapons is at 14:40. Pick up the Gravity Hammer, and the next room has a boatload of dogs Crawlers. If you run into the lower area, they'll all swarm you. Go crazy!

AradorFuck this achievement

SashamorningReally? I got it by accident. If you're really having problems, drop the difficulty to Easy and run through to that part. You'll be surrounded by Watchers, making it really easy to kill them in one shot.

RockCiaytonThe room afterwards where u defend a spot as objective is easier. Instead of waiting there to defend the point sprint across the bridge kill the first 2 crawlers with wat ever weapon u want then wait for more to come down the walls can get more than 3 here easily

SashamorningI don't have a capture card. I'll see if I can find one online.

Neeners CleedusBe sure to do it on easy otherwise this piece of shit garbage of a game will only toss the crawlers around with the hammer and hardly ever kill them..

D RomaineThis is really late, but I found an easier way for me...In the same room above, if you go to the opposite end of where you are supposed to defend. The first group of 3 crawlers will come almost together down the path to you. Once they are in the middle, run out and slam them. I was able to do it multiple times.

mosin360Do it on easy. I got it by luck on heroic when I was going towards the portal.

EmagDrolBotAre you playing a different game from me or something?

My crawlers literally run away from me and each other, they absolutely do not swarm you. Also even on Easy the hammer doesn't one shot them unless they're literally clipped into each other.

SashamorningDid it change in the last 7 years?

EmagDrolBotI highly doubt something changed unless PC version is different, but regardless my experience was definitely that the crawlers ran away from me and each other. If they clumped up to three, then I ran to them, they dispersed a bit away from me and each other, then turned to shoot from a distance.

I ended up getting the achievement in the next room, where there's a narrow bridge that doesn't give them room to run away. (Dan vasNormandy's solution, basically).
