You Are The Weapon

Halo CE: Kill a Hunter with one pistol round.   

Though this achievement can be completed on any mission that houses a duo of Hunters, The Silent Cartographer is probably the best mission to attempt this achievement. On this mission, once you are required to head on over to the security control room, you will fight a decent amount of Covenant troops while ascending a grassy hill. After this firefight, you’ll find yourself in an open valley where this mission’s terminal is located. Here, you’ll also find a nasty pair of Hunters ready to attack.

Since you begin this mission with a Magnum by default, it is important that you kept it up to this point. When facing off against the Hunters, you’ll need to position yourself a few feet directly ahead of the creature. At this point, the Hunter will lunge forward and charge at you. When they do this, you’ll need to sidestep to the left or right in order to dodge the assault. Quickly turn around and aim your Magnum at the patch of exposed, orange flesh on the Hunter’s back. With a single Magnum shot at this weak spot, the Hunter will immediately topple of to his death, thus unlocking the achievement.

I got this one by chance. in the silent cartographer you will take a path up towards the middle of the island. when you get to the top of the path there is an area with 2 hunters. The first hunter must be really hurt to start with because I tossed a grenade and shot him with a pistol and he died really easily. glad I decided to have my pistol out instead of assault rifle.

Put it on easy, literally one shot to the back and it pops.

I dont know why but i did the one The Silent Cartographer on Heroic, and all of the Hunters died instantly in one shot with the pistol for me without weakening them with another weapon.
