It would obviously save you time to do all these at the same time by starting on Legendary, since the achievements stack. Going through on co-op with 3-4 people makes this extremely easy and shouldn't take you more than eight hours or so. Here are some general tips:
  • Make good use of checkpoints. If you need to, run around and die once to get a feel for where the enemies are and what course of action you need to take.
  • Be cautious once you know what to expect. Take it one enemy at a time if you can. Make good use of your grenades. If you have plasma or brute grenades, try to get a stick on one of the bigger enemies to take them right away. Some may require two, but it's much faster than picking away with a battle rifle.
  • Let your NPCs do some work for you. They're not exactly powerhouses and you can't let them do everything, or they'll just run out and get killed, but they can lay down some initial fire and draw the enemies to them, then you can pop out and get more shots off without taking damage.
  • Your shield recharges, make use of it. If you get hit once, more are sure to follow, so find some cover and recharge. The enemies will usually watch the area you went into cover, so if you can sneak around to another side from there, you can probably catch them off guard.
Note #1: The level achievements must be done in one go through or it won't register the achievements. In other words, don't save and quit in the middle of a level, wait until the start of the next level.

Note #2: You can not simply beat the last level on Legendary to get the achievements, each one has to be done separately. You can do some on co-op and some solo and it still works, just check that there is a shield in the bottom right corner when you highlight a level. You must even watch the opening cutscene on the same difficulty to unlock the Campaign Complete achievements.

Iron
10
Find and claim this skull when playing on Normal, Heroic or Legendary difficulty.

Mission: Sierra 117

Effect: "Death carries a heavy price..." -- Instead of only losing 25 points when you die, you lose 75. You also restart from the beginning instead of any checkpoint.

After Freeing Johnson and killing all the covenent that come in the phantoms, walk to the Pelican that comes to pick you up. Face the cargo bay but instead of hopping in, turn left and follow the path. Once you hit the wall jump up to your right, eventually reaching a walkway. Walk all the way to the end, take a left, then a right, then at the end of this little bit to the right is a dark corner. Turn your light on and you should see the skull. If you cant see it you're probably standing on it.


Black Eye
10
Find and claim this skull when playing on Normal, Heroic or Legendary difficulty.Mission: Crow's Nest
Effect: "Bash your way to better health." -- Your shield will not auto-recharge anymore, you have to kill an enemy with a melee attack.

From the start without moving anything you can see a massive pipe above you. Walk up the stairs then up the next set, turn to your left and jump up on the shelf unit. From there jump to the red cross beam then up onto the pipe, from there just walk to the end and walk over the Black Eye skull to claim it. You don't have to pick this one up it does it automatically.


Tough Luck
10 Find and claim this skull when playing on Normal, Heroic or Legendary difficulty.

Mission: Tsavo Highway

Effect: "Your foes always make every saving throw." -- Enemies seem to avoid rockets and grenades easily.

After you have to deactivate a shield that's blocking the road, you will exit onto a bridge and a giant covenant ship flies overhead. You need to get out of your jeep if you are in one and go to the right side of the bridge, then go underneath and you will see bridge supports jutting out into the canyon. Jump onto the one farthest to the left and go to the edge and turn left and you'll see a small jut out of the cliff with the skull on it.


Catch
10 Find and claim this skull when playing on Normal, Heroic or Legendary difficulty.

Mission: The Storm

Effect: "Pull pin. Count to three. Throw." -- Every NPC carries two grenades and throws them often.

You can get this by performing a grenade jump off a warthog, or grab a ghost and go back to the ramp from which you first came out, using the ghost to push a big square crate back over to the front of the silo that the skull is on top of, then use the box as a place to jump from.

Note: Destroying the second wraith by the door makes this disappear.


Fog
10
Find and claim this skull when playing on Normal, Heroic or Legendary difficulty.

Mission: Floodgate

Effect: "You’ll miss those eyes in the back of your head." -- Your motion sensor disappears.

As you are walking down from the anti-air gun you destroyed in the previous mission, you encounter a ramp (next to a missile launcher). Around this ramp, you hit a checkpoint. At this point, you should also hear a marine yelling, “There! Over There!”. Look up and to the right, directly at the roof of the building next to the missle launcher. There is a single flood form (not to be mistaken with the two other flood forms jumping in front of you) which is holding the skull. Kill him before he jumps, and he will drop the skull down to the ground where you can retrieve it. Too early, and the skull will get stuck on the roof though, so just time it carefully.


Famine
10
Find and claim this skull when playing on Normal, Heroic or Legendary difficulty.

Mission: The Ark

Effect: "Trust us. Bring a magazine." -- Dropped weapons will have very little ammo compared to normal.

When you first go into the valley to the right after the wrecked phantom, look to your left where you will see a huge boulder. Use a ghost and get to the side of the boulder that is closest to the bridge overhead. It is easy to pilot the ghost up the side of the wall using the thrust. To get the skull, pilot 2 ghosts up the wall to the top of the bridge and stack them one on top of another next to the beam where the skull is placed. Simply jump from the top of the ghosts towards the skull and land on the beam.


Thunderstorm
10
Find and claim this skull when playing on Normal, Heroic or Legendary difficulty.

Mission: The Covenant

Effect: "Field promotions for everyone!" -- Upgrades enemies to their stronger versions.

After you shut down tower 1 and get access to the hornet, fly to tower 2 (the one the arbiter shut down). While walking up the stairs, go to the middle part that connects both and there should be a stair leading up to a platform where the skull is.


Tilt
10
Find and claim this skull when playing on Normal, Heroic or Legendary difficulty.

Mission: Cortana

Effect: "What was resistance is now immunity." -- Enemies have different body parts that may be resistance to certain bullet types.

After you see a dead Elite with a sword on the ground, you will fall through a fleshy hole. You should be in a large room with a bunch of purple machinery. In the middle is a small purple pedestal with an arrow on it, pointing up. Jump on this, then look up to the left and jump on the rock formation. Look up and left again, then jump to that. Walk across the thin bridge and the skull will be on the ground here.


Mythic
10
Find and claim this skull when playing on Normal, Heroic or Legendary difficulty.

Mission: Halo
Effect: "Coverage under the Covenant health plan." -- Gives a 2x score multiplier for all kills and doubles enemies health.

Follow the normal path till you reach a cave, then hug the right wall until it branches off into a small path, at the end of this path is some rubble and in front is the skull.

Total Awards: 20 (more» ...)
Graduate
10 Earn 5 EXP or finish 10 games to complete the requirements for basic training (Online).

You get 1 EXP point if your team wins in a team game (or if your team is in the top 2 teams in a multi-team game) and you get 1 EXP point if you are in the top half of a FFA match (5 players, top 3 get a point). You can earn points in both Ranked and Social matches. You will lose EXP if you quit out of a team match, so avoid that.

For this achievement, simply get 5 EXP or finish 10 games. You can lose all 10 and still get this achievement.

UNSC Spartan
15
Earn your Sergeant rating to be recognized as a true Spartan (Online).

For this achievement, you simply need 20 EXP. See "Graduate" for more information.

Spartan Officer
25 Advance to the Spartan Officer ranks (Online).

Since the 25th of September 2008 the requirements for this achievement have changed. To unlock this achievement you now need to reach 50 experience in any playlist to earn the Lieutenant rank.




Two for One
5
Score a Double Kill with a single spartan laser shot in a ranked free for all playlist (Online).

Your best bet for this is a King of the Hill game, seeing as everyone will be running into the same area. Hang back away from the hill and fire into it while people are vying for control. Not an easy thing to do, but keep at it. Best done at lower ranks.

Maps: Construct, Snowbound, High Ground
This must be done in the "Lone Wolves" game type.

Too Close to the Sun
5
Destroy an enemy banshee with the spartan laser or missile pod in a ranked playlist or in campaign.

In the campaign on the level "The Covenant" you start off with a laser and there are Banshees flying around in the sky. Simply keep firing until you get one and reload your last checkpoint if you keep missing and run out of ammo. Some people report having difficulty getting this even when blowing up a Banshee, but this is how I did it, so it does work.

Triple Kill
5
Kill 3 enemies within 4 seconds of one another in a ranked free for all playlist (Online).

This is best done in a King of the Hill or Oddball match, seeing as everyone will be running to the same area. Try to get a sword (this will get you the "Steppin Razor" achievement as well) or a rocket launcher. Otherwise, just get off some good grenades against people already battling and finish them off with whatever weapon you have equipped.

Maps: Any map, just takes skill and a little luck.
This must be done in the "Lone Wolves" game type.

Overkill
5 Kill 4 enemies within 4 seconds of one another in a ranked free for all playlist (Online).

See "Triple Kill" for tips. This one is decidedly harder since it requires you to kill all four of your opponents, but it does use the same principles.

This must be done in the "Lone Wolves" game type.

Lee R Wilson Memorial
5
Score 5 grenade sticks in any ranked free for all playlist (Online).

You have to get 5 total in a single match. Try to hang back away from people fighting and throw grenades in at them, or if you know someone has a sword, entice them to come after you and they should be lined up for an easy throw. The stick counts even if they die after you are already dead.
Maps: Guardian is by far the easiest.

This must be done in the "Lone Wolves" game type.

We’re in for some Chop
5
Destroy an enemy vehicle with equipment in a ranked playlist or in campaign.

In the campaign on Tsavo Highway, shortly after the second chapter begins, there is a long building to the left that has Trip Mines in it. Grab one of these and proceed to the next area. Here there are Brute Choppers trying to kill you. You will need to attack the front end of the vehicle for a bit until about two small pieces fly off. Once this happens, it should be weak enough to kill with the mine, so place it down and step behind it, waiting for the guy to try and splatter you. It may take a few tries, but just reload the last checkpoint if you fail.

Killing Frenzy
5 Kill 10 enemies without dying in any ranked free for all playlist (Online).

This one is somewhat difficult, but it can also be quite easy depending on your strengths and the skill of your opponents. If you're a good sniper, grab that and hide, only popping out to kill someone and moving spots whenever you shoot. Getting the sword or rocket launcher is always a good idea.

The way I got this: On Snowbound, grab the Spartan Laser and then hop in the ghost. Aside from the Brute Shot and Plasma Grenades, the enemies now have little defense against you. Keep circling the map and splatter or shoot anyone and use your boost to run away if you're getting hurt. I went 14-0 with this method. Lost the match obviously, but got the achievement.
This must be done in the "Lone Wolves" game type.

Steppin' Razor
5 Score a Triple Kill with the sword in a ranked free for all playlist (Online).

See "Triple Kill" for tips. The sword must be used on all three people as the killing weapon, not a grenade and two sword kills or anything else.

Maps: The Pit, Construct
This must be done in the "Lone Wolves" game type.

Mongoose Mowdown
5
Splatter an enemy with the mongoose in a ranked free for all playlist (Online).

This one is tricky. You will have to hit someone with low shields and at high speed for it to kill them, plus you have no weapons while on the Mongoose to defend yourself. Your best bet is to find two people fighting and barge in, hoping they don't notice you and you can get one of them square on.

Maps: High Ground, Isolation
This must be done in the "Lone Wolves" game type.

Up Close and Personal
5
Kill 5 enemies by melee or assassination in a ranked free for all playlist (Online).

Most of the battles in this game come down to an assault rifle spray and a beatdown, so this will most likely be your first online achievement. Sneaking behind people while cloaked will help as well.

This must be done in the "Lone Wolves" game type.

Fear the Pink Mist
5 Kill 5 enemies with the needler in a ranked free for all playlist or in campaign.

On the first mission of the campaign, you will come across a needler very early. Grab it and spray the next few enemies and you'll have this. Put it on easy if you're having trouble.

You can also do it online in "Lone Wolves" but it is much easier in the campaign.

Headshot Honcho
5
Kill 10 enemies with headshots in a ranked free for all playlist or in campaign.

In the campaign on the mission "The Ark" you start with a sniper. You will have to kill 10 enemies without dying for this. In the first battle (the circular prison yard), keeping firing on the enemies (with headshots) until it unlocks. Some people say they had to get only headshots to unlock it, but I killed one enemy with two body shots on accident, then killed two more with headshots and it unlocked.

Used Car Salesman
5
Destroy a vehicle that has three enemies in it in a ranked playlist or in campaign.

During the campaign you can get this by blowing up the area of a Covenant dropship (giant purple ship) where the turret is and for some reason it awards this achievement. Some people have got this by blowing up the front turret, some have got it by blowing the the side turret that is manned by an enemy, so try both. There are plenty of these ships in the campaign, any of them will work.

MVP
5
Earn the MVP in any ranked playlist (Online).

In a team match, the player who comes in first and gets the best Kill/Death ratio from either side will get MVP. So if the top player on team 1 has +2 and the top player on team two has only +1, the player from team 1 will get MVP. Your team does not have to win the match for you to be able to get MVP. This is only available in team games.

Maybe Next Time Buddy
5
Board the same vehicle within 10 seconds after being boarded in any free for all playlist (Online).

Fairly easy with ghosts, just go up to people without splattering them and hope they take it instead of killing you, then there should a second or two before they can drive away where you'll be able to grab it back. You have 10 seconds which in a Halo online match is a long time, so pursue them if they run.

Maps: High Ground, Snowbound, Isolation

Note: This one can be done in social matches. Head to Rumble Pit with a friend if needed.


Marathon Man
40
Locate and access all Terminals in the Campaign.

Note #1:
You have to wait for the "Fragment Ends" message to come on before the game registers that you've got the terminal. The only exception is Terminal #2 on the level "The Covenant," this one does not give that message. Hit the A-button to scroll through a few messages, then the terminal will turn red and a few more screens will need to be read before the "Fragment Ends" message appears.

Note #2: These can be done in any order and you do not have to finish the level. It is suggested to do them all on the same difficulty. Access the terminal, wait for the end message, then you can save and quit the level.

The Ark:
  1. Start the mission and once you enter the first building take a left into another door and now you should be in a curved corridor. On the inside is a Terminal.
  2. After activating the bridge to let your comrades accross the gap, do a 180 and you should see it. *it does not open until you activate the bridge*
  3. In the third building after defeating the scarab, kill the group of sleeping covenent, then follow the corridor downwards. Once you reach a door in front that is locked, immediately on the left there's an open door. Go through and walk straight off, then do a 180 to find a secret room. It is in there.
The Covenant:
  1. When in the first tower standing on the lift, face the access panel and turn left. Jump over and it's right there.
  2. Land your hornet on the second tower, walk towards the entrance but when you see the locked door, do a 180. Should be right in front of you.
  3. When in the third tower standing on the lift, face the access panel and turn right. Jump over and it's right there.
Halo:
  1. After reaching the end of the first cave, hug the right wall and you will see a building. Jump up onto the walkway and hang a left once inside. It's right there.
Guerilla
10

Please see "Reclaimer" for more information.

Reclaimer
10
Score over 15,000 points in the Campaign meta-game on the final mission.

The meta-game is an overall score of how you do during a campaign mission. This thread on our forums has the scoring information, so check there for tips on how to get the required score for each level. Playing on harder difficulties, turning on skull and finishing quickly all give large multipliers to your score.

The "Bungie recommended" method is playing on Heroic with 1-2 skulls on. I personally did these on Normal with the skulls Fog, Catch and Tough Luck.
