This can be done solo on Easy difficulty.
An easy spot to hold out is right at the PDW-57 below the spawn which happens to be beside the Quick Revive elevator. You can get there by buying the spawn door, then clearing the debris for the escalator. Alternatively you can take the elevator down to the floor by hopping onto it if you want to save some points (this applies only in Solo mode).
Either way you will see the gun on the wall beside an elevator shaft. The elevator shaft also has Quick Revive, which becomes available to you whenever the perk machine drops down/comes up to that floor (it is only powered on in solo, in co-op it stays off). Buy the PDW and hold by the window where you can see the Dragon. Watch the barricade by the elevator to the left and aim at the head! Buy more ammo when you need it (only 500 points). Last thing is buy Quick Revive (in solo) if you need it. The only hard part is when the Minion wave comes. As soon as round 10 starts, the achievement will unlock.
Your best alternative is at the Mystery Box in the upside-down skyscraper. Another alternative is by the AK-74u, but that one is more dangerous since zombies can hop up on the overlook where the gun is.
