The easiest solution to this is to load up the map with friends on Easy difficulty. Then the person who wants the achievement stays in the Saferoom while the rest of the team goes and does the event. Boom. Achievement.

The alternative is to load it up in Splitscreen with a second controller and use the second controller to go and do the event. This requires some controller juggling as your first may go idle and start to move; also your AI teammates will be constantly running back and forth between both players and opening the Saferoom door so being quick about it is advised. When the event starts the AI will join up with the second controller so just make sure the first stays in the Saferoom with the door shut.

EDIT: Thank to bobrepuS LOL for pointing this out a few comments down, DO NOT HEAL when you start the event, it voids the Cheevo.

100% no strings attached way to get this as of Oct 13 2016.

Okay, so I gave up on this award in 2013. Came back to it as of this day.

Fallowed the whole open the door and go to the corner of the isle strategy on single player. Then made a dead lobby online. Nothing. Did it over and over. Then I tried something that made some sort of sense. Made a dead lobby online, looked at the achievement and thought about what I could possibly be missing.

"A wing and a prayer" well, the name has "a wing" in the title. I did the basic strategy in a dead lobby, opened the door. Walked out onto the wing, ran back inside to the corner in the isle on easy and it finaly after all these years unlocked.

*** Even simplified version.

I don't know if it will work on single player or offline campaign.

Make a dead lobby (easy now not many people play this game anymore)

Set it to easy

(you want no one to enter the game, keep it public. Chances are no one will join)

Open the door, walk out it onto the wing and run back in

Run to that corner.

Let bots handle everything

Should unlock.
