Anyone got these achievements for all difficulties? As the title says, what is the best way to defeat an AI in under five minutes?
Cannon rush works reliably against Insane AI. Works best against enemy Protoss; creep and fast zerglings makes things complicated. Blistering sands is good. If you get it for Insane, you'll simultaneously get it for lower AI levels.

You should get 'GG' at 4:30.
You are going to want to 6-pool. I don't even think you need gas for this type of push, and you might not even need the Queen. Just get those lings in there base and micro a bit to take out any marines that pop out.
The A.I. will do some funky things with its drones to try to deal with the early rush, so constant ling pressure and you should be fine.
Remember insane A.I. gathers 7 minerals to your 5 minerals so it is critical you hit that supply line.
