Starved For Shields

Halo 2: Complete a level with only the Streaking Skull active on Heroic or Legendary.    

The Streaking Skull is a new skull modifier introduced in Halo 2: Anniversary that causes player’s shields to constantly decay. Fortunately, your shields will recharge slowly after each and every kill, thus making it slightly similar to the original Black Eye Skull.

Activate this skull in the Campaign lobby and choose whichever mission you’d like. As a note, Armory is without a doubt the best mission to attempt this achievement since all there is to do here is complete the "basic training" and follow Johnson to the station's bridge. Alternatively, Outskirts works too (if you're playing in Co-Op - Armory isn't available in Co-Op) since you can skip the first three firefights by exploiting the rooftop running while the second portion of the level offers a Warthog, meaning you can simply drive past all enemy encounters. Just keep in mind that no other skulls may be activated when working on this achievement.

Also, as a general suggestion, be sure to utilize mid-ranged weapons such as the Battle Rifle if you employ the second mission's strategy and need to get some kills to recharge your shields. The Battle Rifle's firepower can score kills from afar, meaning you won’t have to confront enemies in close-quarters combat. Once the mission you have chosen has been completed, the achievement will unlock after the concluding cutscene.

Pick the The Heretic level of Halo 2, put it on legendary and select the streaking skull. Skip (or watch) the cut scene and the achievement will unlock.
