The general aim to get this easier would be to increase the amount of hits you cause without killing your opponent i.e. decrease you guns' damage, and increase ammunition, accuracy and stability.

To do this; my SMGs had these equipped:
- Extended SMG clips (-1 stability, +4 ammo)
- Internal SMG magazine (-2 recoil, +4 ammo)
The SMG themselves were the Samael Storm (high stability and recoil; low damage).

When firing, try aiming at the torso, rather than the head.
Also; once you do reach the maximum; then reload your weapons if there are more enemies nearby - you never know you might get it again.

Most importantly:
a) reloading resets your multiplier
b) level up your SMG skills, so the multiplier chain lasts longer (this also increases the maximum multiplier), and your accuracy increases

The two things I found were a problem with this are:
- knowing what the maximum multiplier is (it starts at 1.7x I believe, and increases as you level up SMG's)
- Knowing how many times you've reached the maximum (you do get a perk after 4)

Good luck

Some simple tips to get this achievement:

- aim for bigger ammo capacity with upgrades for the SMG
- give points to SMG skill, so you can have more time between the shots
- run, play like crazy, get in fights as many times as you can, don't play slow and careful (you may play on easy to make it sure, but it's not necessary)
- don't turn off the alarms, so you will get more enemies

And most importantly:
- use the Bullet storm skill. One easy way to do this achievement is that you shoot almost every bullet from your SMG, then just before reloading, activate the skill. With it, you don't have to reload, until it's on, so you have plenty of time to do the killing.

Use the above tactics on bosses (maybe even multiple times), and in bigger fights, and you shouldn't have problem getting this achievement. I got mine in the first city after Saudi-Arabia, so I still had plenty of time left.
