Suprisingly easy to do, just a little time consuming. Play on deathmatch release on easy. Choose whoever you want, I chose Forge for his tanks. Once it starts just take over all bases except the enemies. Garrison some troops in the release point and just keep releasing the flood, takes about a minute cooldown each time. Once your score is at 4000 just activate all debuff skulls, release the flood then kill the enemy. It took about an hour to complete.

Play on Release on either Deathmatch or Standard as Anders on Easy. Make Hawks to fill your population capacity.

Send half to Southern Release area and half to Northern Release area. Put Spartans on the Release Controls.

Release the Flood periodically. There is a cooldown period between each release. Keep doing so until you get 4000 points and then attack enemy base.

Don't activate any skulls and remember that the enemy will sometimes attack your base

All you need to do is use the common boosting technique that players use to get score on XBL and you can get 33,600 in a 20-30 minute game.

easily done by just chillin out with a shitty A.I, dont see why you would have to boost. just set them to wtv difficulty fits you (i did heroic) and camp your base waiting for them to feed units. eventually when you get three star scarab / leader, or 12 star spartan tanks, then just rush the base.

easy and fun achievement

#6 has it right except you ARE supposed to activate skulls at the end (the debuff ones that increase your score). I can confirm you only need to get to about 3600+ (some have said 3450), before you activate the skulls and finish off the mission. Just take your best units and camp the flood spawns that you activate every couple of minutes until you get to at least 3450 (3700 confirmed). You can see your score by pausing the game.

Ok this can be done whilst boosting for xp to rank up. All you need to do is have a partner to play with. Then follow the steps. 1) Submit good player reviews about each other. 2) Choose a gametype that has population idealy 1vs1 deathmatch one person be forge and one person be a covenant. 3 It does take around 40 mins but you end up witharound 30,000 xp so u rank up a bit and get the achievement. Read the post below for the rest of the deatails...............

The person that is forge build cobras and put 3 spartans in them. Whilst forge does that covenant go round with your leader and claim all the bases on the map except your partners base. Build all supply pads 1 temple and put around 3 vechile depots on the closest to forges base. Continously build wraiths and send them in by putting the rally point at forges base. The cobras will one shot the wraiths. The player playing as forge will get around 20xp per wraith. In around 40 mins you will reach 4000 xp and then the covenant should resign, the unsc player will recieve around 40,000xp get the achievement and possibly rank up. Then all is needed to do is alternate and help the partner. Read the post below for even more details.............

This is a much easier option than the flood method as it ranks your online rank up whilst it not a bannable offence. It also enables the unsc player to lock down the cobras and go away for 40 mins leaving the cobras to kill the wraiths, so for the unsc player easy xp. For the covenant maybe a bit of effort continously building wraiths. This idea is great with a trusty partner. Will give a shoutout when i remember the gamertag to the guy who introduced me to this method!!!!!! Thanks and good luck!
