There are a total of five snipers in "Follow Freeman!" (chapter 11) that you must kill. (I say this plainly because there are a lot of conflicting reports out there.) These are the only five you must kill. No other snipers in any other level matter. You'll know you get them when they fall out the window (and the blue line disappears).

1) Leave the building at the beginning of the level and turn left. As you walk down the street, you'll see a blue line in a building ahead of you. Use a grenade or the SMG alt-fire to kill him.

2) As you turn right, before you enter the building, there's one ahead of you that's a bit hard to reach. Aim your grenade above the window and it should kill him.

Now enter the building through the blue door on the left.

3) After the watery basement, you'll go up stairs into a ruined building. On the left, a sniper will fire at you from across the street. Kill him.

4) Go around the fire and upstairs. There is another sniper on the left across the street. Throw a grenade and kill him.

5) Further down the building, there is one more blue line across the street. Throw a grenade and kill him. The achievement will pop instantly.
