Did this on Heroic, with the Famine, Tilt, and Tough Luck skulls on.
Quick steady pace through the level, killed most enemies, ran past the hunters and finished.
Final score was 11,891/8,000 so plenty of room.

This alleviates the need to play on legendary which is unnecessary and may be problematic for some, and avoids the thunderstorm skull which is unnecessary here.

Here's one video for reference of a possible path, of par score on legendary:

GR34TD3STR0Y3RWhy would not use Iron, its basicly a free skull. Just use quit scuming. Edit: yappari, with famine, tilt, and iron just got 14,000 first try. I would say swap out which tough luck or tilt for iron.

HK ThaneThis is no longer possible with this strategy. I just did the mission on heroic with the 3 skulls mentioned, killed every enemy including hunter and didnt die. Got 6,135 points.

iMaginaryy^ what was the time? Time matters as well
It was harder at first, then they made it require less points, so unless they changed it again super late idk. I'm guessing it just took too long? sometimes its best not to take the time to kill all the enemies. Hence the "quick, steady pace" Did you notice the points going down?

Not The SelkieThe par time for this mission is only 3 minutes so you'll get really heavily punished if you spend lots of time killing enemies. I got 9k on heroic with the above 3 skulls, 1 death and skipping a lot of the enemies in the final area (including the hunters).
