This is easily accomplished on the ATAK Diamond Mine mission, assuming you do not need either the:

Conflict: Denied OpsOut Of SightThe Out Of Sight achievement in Conflict: Denied Ops worth 20 pointsTrack Atongwe in Diamond Mine without being detected.


Conflict: Denied OpsYour Cousin Dances Naked...The Your Cousin Dances Naked... achievement in Conflict: Denied Ops worth 32 pointsListen in on 4 guard conversations in Diamond Mine without being detected.

If you do not need either of these/want this achievement more, proceed with the guide. PATIENCE IS KEY. At the very start of the mission Atongwe and his crew will be standing right next to an explosive barrel, wait for one of the guards in the yard (unassociated with Atongwe) to get close to the barrel and shoot it, this should net you 3-4 kills. If only Atongwe dies, reload the level.

After killing everyone in the yard getting as many people as you can to die to barrels/canisters proceed into the next area, BE PATIENT, and allow the guards to take up position and pick off who you can with barrels/cylinders. Shoot the men up on the balconies as they cannot be harmed by any of the barrels. Once you have killed the men who are close to you, not the ones by the door you need to go through either switch to your second character or tell your co-op partner to go around the back of the lone building as to draw the other guards attention and hopefully push them around the cover next to the barrels for your main guy to shoot. After this area you should have about 5-6 kills with barrels/cylinders.

Keep fighting your way through the area's picking off who you can with barrels (there is a lack of barrel's and the people don't seem to go near them at all). You would be lucky to get 1-2 kills in this area. Once you get the objective marker to destroy the data bank proceed to the objective but stay on the upper level, there should be a man down below you near the stairs and a barrel, here you can get an easy collateral kill, bringing your total to 6-8 kills.

After doing this and going through the data bank room and going to the balcony of the area. YOU CAN EASILY GET 3-4 BARREL KILLS IN THIS AREA ALONE. Once on that balcony, go through the door across the balcony and you will see two directions you can go through, one leads downstairs and you don't want to take that path. Going the other way brings you into an office of some sort over looking the hangar where the explosive to people ratio is about 5:1, shooting one of the barrels in here should get you 1 kill at least, 2 if you are lucky. After doing that go to the balcony and pick off who you can.

UNCONFIRMED: There are two men standing on the building where you have to plant the C4, I never tried this I always just shot them but if you are willing to risk it you can try running up to the building and planting the C4 and having it blow up to kill them, I am not sure if this even counts towards the achievement as I never tried it.

After getting through this area you will be at the LZ and told to defend yourself until the evac helicopter arrives. At this point several guys will appear on the hills all around you. STAY ON THE LOWER LEVEL OF THE BUILDING UNTIL THE COVER HAS BEEN SHOT AWAY. Looking out the front window straight ahead you should see 3 barrels, STAY PATIENT, one guy will drop down the cliff right next to the barrel (personally my achievement popped right here, but don't worry if your's does not, just keep going). The barrels all around the outside of this quarry (?) will at one point or another have guys drop down next to them and you should be able to get your achievement no problem.

This achievement pops in-game so keep killing until you have gotten it. It also delays a little on the pop, so if you are keeping count don't worry. Some final notes for you guys:

1) The explosive you shoot has to be what kills them

2) If they are standing near a barrel, but you still think they may be too far away you can do 1 of 2 things:
a) Shoot the barrel anyways
b) Throw a grenade NEAR THEM, not AT THEM
to see if that can get them to move closer.
