This achievement is best undertaken on Rookie difficulty during Minor Operation Grifter, and with a Recon soldier in your squad. Operation Grifter becomes available after Rosemont major operation.

The enemies in the mission are sectoids and outsiders. With careful movement of your companions and judicious use of Lift and Heal, they can easily handle all enemies in the mission except the last fight.

Fortunately, the last fight (against an advanced drone, a muton and an outsider) is glitched.

The enemy group triggers as you are about to go through the mission's second train boxcar. So long as you do not pass through the boxcar (going INTO it is fine), only the advanced drone moves against you. The muton and outsider will just stand there firing ineffectually.

After taking down the drone, you can use the Recon soldier's Critical Shot ability (which can go through walls) to take out the outsider and the muton without ever getting anywhere near them.

The ability has a recharge of approx. 46 seconds, so this method takes some time (the fight will take approximately 6 mins) but it is completely foolproof.

If you have a drone or silacoid, feel free to use them. The only prohibitions are on firing guns or throwing grenades (thanks to Leflues for the confirmation).
