I'll try to explain this achievement because the game doesn't exactly explain rackets-attack and enforcers-killing very well.

Some time into the game, you'll start getting missions to attack rackets. These rackets usually take the form of illegal businesses like prostitution, contraband, union extortion, etc. To initiate an attack, you'd first need to speak to a contact. Once this is done, several icons will appear on the map. These icons are the locations of the various establishments forming the rackets.

To attack a racket, your task is to cause enough damage to these establishments, until the racket boss appears in the main warehouse. The damage required differs from racket to racket. It usually ranges between $20,000 to $30,000 per racket during the earlier missions, but may go as high as $100,000 later. To "damage" a racket, you'd need to go to the locations where the icons are, and start wrecking havoc. Again, the tasks you need to do varies from racket to racket. You could hurt them by stealing money, helping prostitutes escape, stealing medical supplies, destroying contraband items, and killing enforcers.

To unlock this achievement, you'd need to ensure that in the process of dealing damage to a racket, you never, ever kill an enforcer. These enforcers are easy to spot - their locations appear on the map as some sort of a skull/ alien icon. To be safe, I'd suggest never even approaching these locations at all. Focus on dealing damages at other icons instead - there's definitely enough things to do to deal sufficient damage to force the boss out without killing the enforcers. You can kill all other enemies, just make sure you don't kill these dudes. They also have the word "KILL" above their heads to make it easier for you to spot them.

Note: Always use the cn_back button to use "instinct", Hitman-style, to spot the locations of enemies during fights. This makes things so much easier. Instinct also usually points you to your objectives, show the locations of medical/ weapon cabinets (so that you can refill), locations of money to steal, etc.

Once you deal enough damage to a racket, i.e., reduce the required amount to $0, the racket boss will appear in their HQ. Go talk to your contact to launch a final attack on the racket. Select cn_A to accept that all undone missions in this racket will be forfeited forever, and the achievement will unlock. Yes, you don't even need to take on the boss. The achievement will unlock before you head to the boss fight.

PS: Do note though that enforcers that are not killed during the earlier attacks will appear at the HQ to make the boss fight somewhat harder. Also, it'd be better to try to get this achievement done in the earlier rackets, because the later ones are much harder to do. One later mission has as many as eight enforcers - you won't want to spare them before going to the racket boss.

After the initial 3 districts you have to take control of, the game opens up a bit. During this time there are rackets that do not have enforcers (such as the Garbage racket in Barclay Mills). When I chose to go after the boss for the Garbage racket, the achievement popped for me. Getting this through this natural progression allows you to continue to complete all the racket missions to increase your "take" on each racket before taking it over.

This achievement is pretty easy once you've understood it. There are lots of opportunites to get this achievement. I personally got it while conquering Tickfaw Harbor.

An enforcer a has skull symbol on it. So do not complete these missions when conquering a district. Complete all of the other missions to get the required amount of damage.

Once you have caused enough damage talk to your contact and the achievement will unlock when you're finished speaking to him/her.

Hope this helped.

Whenever you get the ability to destroy items in rackets near enforcers and in compounds ($1000 in damage) is when you can get first get this achievement. I got it just after destroyed the prostitution ring in The Hollows racket story missions. I just killed everyone except the enforcers at their location and stole all the money that was there as well as destroyed the boxes as well (destroying boxes makes no noise so you can do it even if the enforcer is in the room with you), then head over to the compound and steal all the money and destroy everything and you should get the achievement when you go to turn in the quest to your underboss.
