Edit: Might as well use the Envy skull as well for maximum easitude, it makes it so that the chief gets the Arbiter's cloak ability, so you can just waltz into an area, see where the enemies are and then blow them straight to hell. Also the Bandanna skull, for infinite ammo. It says the zero multipliers "disable achievements" but that applies to the level completion/par achievements, and not to the "do X in this level."

The scarab skull makes this achievement a lot easier. Enable the skull and any weapon you're using shoots the scarab gun ammo, and anything downrange of you is gonna' die in a few shots. Even vehicles will crumble with only a short burst. Weapons will still have their same fire rate and ammo usage so the weapons I recommend using are a rapid fire weapon (plasma rifle or SMG) and a 2x zoom rifle, preferably a Battle Rifle because of the 3-round burst but a Carbine will work as well. You start off with an SMG and can grab a Battle Rifle off one of the unfortunate Helljumpers that landed further up the hill and died.

If you're just going for this achievement then I'd definitely suggest doing it on Heroic, mainly because of all the beam rifle jackals. While it's still not that bad on Legendary having to face beam rifle jackals means if they shoot you then you'll die and go back to checkpoint, whereas on Heroic a shot from a beam rifle jackal just drops your shields.

For the most part the level is open enough that you can just shoot the enemies, but even with parts that are a bit cramped usually just shooting the wall behind the enemies will kill them quickly without hurting you. Also melee attacks and grenades work as normal so if you're having issues in cramped areas use them.

R3f1CuL i have tried this 4 times now with the scarab skull on and did not get the achievement... same thing with the commuter and nothing... dunno i think scarab may disable it for some and not others? who knows this game is so damn backwards and terrible with achievements its hard to tell

WhiteHelljumper I used the Scarab skull to get the achievement, and it unlocked just fine for me. I do know people have been having issues with achievements not unlocking when it should.

R3f1CuL i have some achievements that are done unlocking... but this didnt register at all... hard to tell with this game if its the skull or the game not properly doing it... but i tried the scarab skull for the commuter achievement as well after trying this and didnt get that either ... so maybe that patched it? or maybe i had bad luck with the game properly tracking it for that sitting :/ who knows with this junk at this point honestly :/

Timbouton As of 17/04/2015, you can still use this method (even if it says that achievements are disabled).

ResinousHashish I have no idea what happened, I didn't even know this was an achievement (I only have 30/600 left in this game) and I popped this after using a ghost to speed run (on legendary) Delta Halo... I used a vehicle and it popped haha

ResinousHashish Edit: it appears if you use the save/quit method then resume it voids any vehicles you entered previously.

Gamerscore I got in a turret and did not get the achievement, just a heads up.

The Last Rascal One: Bonus points for easitude.
Two: Massive points for reminding me to have fun with this achievement.

Skulls: Bandanna, Boom, Envy, B-Day, Funeral, IWHBYD, Prophet, Scarab

Aside from blowing myself up (repeatedly) with the Scarab gun, I was grinning the whole way. Well done.

PhillipWendell Tried it today with the scarab, envy and bandana skulls on and it popped as soon as I finished the level after not entering a vehicle or turret. Thanks!
