What you need to do is to go to the Campaign screen, Press X then set scoring to free for all then select the following Skulls Famine, ToughLuck, Catch and Fog then select the difficulty as Normal. If you don't have the Skulls look up the Skull guide then collect the ones as needed then play through the Campaign normally, you will be scored on the amount of enemies you kill, Time (the faster you complete the level the higher your score will be) points WILL be deducted for dying Suicide included Betraying team members A.I included. if you complete the whole campaign whith these tips will give you a total of 90g, plus if you don't have the Campaign completed on normal you will recieve the Achievements for the levels completed. I hope this guide helps all of you

It does work in Co-op but the points will go to the player that actually gets the kills.

Do it on normal with the three easiest skulls on. do it co-op so you don't have to restart from checkpoint so the other players does'nt have to be playing. just kill all enemies and do it quick so you get max multiplier. Famine, ToughLuck, Catch are best best to use .
you can also do it on heroic for more points but if you do it quick you can do it on normal. got 33.000 points myself on co-op normal.

Really come on lol easy

I'm having a bit of trouble with these meta campaign ones. i've collected all the skulls that you can get achievents for in normal campaign and a few of the silver ones too but when i go into the meat game menu only a few show up (famine, tilt and thunderstorm) i think. the others say that they are locked.

Anyone know why this might be? And do you think you would get enough points on normal with these skulls activated?

If they show as locked there's no other choice but to go out and fetch them again, sadly. Sorry to say. I've definitely had to do that before; and more than once.

Just follow the method TheJackal204 said. I finished the first mission in about 20 minutes with about 14,000 points, but with the bonuses you get at the end of the level I ended up with 28,000 points, almost double what I needed. I probably died about 10 times.

I found the easiest way to do this was on normal difficulty, with 3 skulls active. Iron (if you die that's game-over, you have to start from the beginning) and Mythic (enemies have double health) and Grunt Birthday party (I could be wrong but I think it's easier to get a head-shot and hence 65 points for each one with the other 2 skulls on).

Get rid of your AR/machine gun, you are going or headshots. I mainly used the battle rifles of which there are several dropped near dead marines throughout the level, and the magnum/pistol. Later in the level I also used the needler for a few multicombine explosions.

The only bit which you could die if you are about as good as me is the Chieftain with the hammer right at the end of the level. before you get to that bit, there is a fight on a clif

-side, before you cross over a bridge and go through a red-lit tunnel (an AI soldier will say "The Colonel went that way Chief, through the cave"). Back at the cliff there is a crashed Pelican with load of ammo, battle-rifles and most importantly 2 sniper-rifles. Your 2 weapons should be Battle-rifle and sniper-rifle, so when you go through the cave and get the small cut-scene on the over-hang near the dam. You can basically kill almost everything from up on the overhang, including the hammer-chieftain. When you sniper the Chieftain, he will seek cover in a building. But simply turn around and try and go back the way you came towards the cave (which is not there anymore), when you return to the overhang, all the enemies which took cover from your sniper-fire will be out in the open again i

-including hammer-man (he may be directly below you very close), sniper him to death before dropping down. Using this technique is cheap, but it does mean you do not have to face Hammer-chieftain with mythic health, you can kill him and he can't hit you unless you drop off the ledge. If you any good, this is the only hard bit on the level, so using Iron skull get you a 3x points multiplier on all your kills. I got about 22'000 points with a 1.5x multiplier. but even with a time multiplier of 1x, it works. It's all about finding the sniper rifle.

Did this on 2-player normal co-op with tough luck, catch, fog, famine, and mythic on. I got over 30,000 points with a 1.5x time bonus, so there should be no problem.

For most of this group of achievements, Heroic plus Catch and Fog will get you more than enough points.
