I'd like to offer up a similar solution to Epilepsy Sucks', although I think mine is easier to setup and maintain.

Start up a second controller and load forge on Skyward in H2. Turn on infinite ammo or bottomless clip, and change the starting weapons to BRs and Magnums. Turn shields off and turn health to 10%. Turn respawn to instant.

You'll start on a very small floating platform with two initial spawns and one respawn point. Now, you have a couple options. First, you can just stand in front of the respawn point and headshot controller #2. The problem is that the weapons and bodies collect and eventually will crash the game.

To mitigate that problem, build a crate a few feet off the edge of the platform and set its physics to phased or fixed. That way it won't drop when you let it go. Then move the respawn point on top of the crate you just built and set its physics to phased. This way, when you kill controller #2, the bodies and weapons simply fall into the sky below and disappear, removing the crashing and lag issues.

Assuming you start with zero headshots and don't miss a headshot the entire time, you'll need to reload your magnum 209 times.

User Dizyne suggests that you dual-wield magnums and alternate firing them in order to never have to wait for a reload. Could potentially shave several minutes off of this grind.

Hope my solution helps!
DizyneLoved this set up, worked perfectly. I do have one suggestion to help save a few minutes off the whole process. If you get close enough to your second controller, you can duel wield the magnums. Duel wielding allows you to never to not be shooting because of the reload. Like I said not a huge difference but still.

MAJORPOOPYHey Dizyne, I didn't even think of that. I'll add it to the solution! Thanks!

Guidalityor you can set infinite ammo to bottomless clip so you never have to reload

ResinousHashishboth the platform and respawn are set to phased but when I test it by killing myself with a grenade on the platform the bodies are still there when I spawn, any way to fix this?

MAJORPOOPY^umm...if you're using the smallest box and putting it off the edge of the platform, the bodies won't balance on the box. They will slip off the side. The respawn needs to be off the edge of the platform on a box, not on the platform itself.

ResinousHashishThat worked thanks man, one more question; is there an option to set the magnum/battle rifle to auto fire? Clicking the trigger 2,500 times is going to suck, but if I could rubber band it and have it auto fire that would be great!

Boneless117Just to add to this one. You can do this with multiple controllers / people.
Here is an example.

Noodles JrI think this achievement may be glitched with the latest update. No headshots are counting towards the achievement.

AngryYeti420Note: to anyone who is trying to get any medals in a less tedious and eye degrading way in multiplayer, you can now earn them from firefight by killing Ai (If you own reach you can play firefight) I just got over 25 double kills 40 assist medals, and 2 legendary medals from a single 10 minute game. Other medals such as plasma stick kills work as well.
