    All credit for this solution goes to Pikey1969 for his Youtube video.

    This is the best video I have found, and I used it to get the achievement. It tells you when and where to throw flashbangs and reload.

    VespruWorse achievement ever the fact I’ve been trying this for years and still don’t have for the 100% is so frustrating I just tried again and got to end twice and apparently I shot the hostage both times 🙄🤬 so officially give up! If anyone sees this and feels like helping a guy out with this achievement please help haha even tho it’s probably not worth your stress

    l Archvile lMany thanks. I finally got this completed 11.5 years after completing every other achievement, and shelving it. I've been going through my backlog and finally popped it back in. Somehow it was easier to complete at 32 years of age than at 21

    I just got this achievement today thanks to the Insider Moves video that explains what to do and where. It is the perfect strategy to follow for this mission/achievement. Thanks to Denny Atkin (editer) and Ryan Treit (Treit and True)!

    UPDATE: There was an Inside Xbox video of this on and on the Xbox 360 Dashboard, but is no longer available. I did find a video up on YouTube.

    Credits (thank these guys for the video):

    Martay28This solution is spot on... Ive been trying to get this for god knows how many years and following loads of videos and doing it in so many different ways... But after watching this video it popped after a few tries! I am so happy to have finally done it headspinclaptoast

    spankyNspronkleThanks for this! It's definitely the best solution... I wasted so much time in the first room on my other attempts when the best thing to do is run past them all and save 6 seconds. Knocked this out in 5 tries after seeing the video.

    2. Go left into the room with the tables NEVER right.
    3. As you approach the end of the room with the tables through a flashbang to the BACK of the next room causing all enemies to be stunned.
    4. DONT Cover you dont have the time push forward to the left of the seats. (Remember your teammates are indistructable and will NOT push forward until you do).
    5. At the end of the first room there are 2 guys behind the walls. one to the left and one to the right and CAN be shot through the walls.
    6. Once at the next section you wanna be at the right of the room camping behind the chairs until the side of the plane blows off.
    7. Move forward and left behing more chairs and immediatly look 90 degrees right and kill the 2 guys there.
    8. Point you MP5 at the top of the stairs and shoot them as they come down.
    9. Once up the 1st flight of stairs throw a flashbang up the right side then go left (If you haven't got just over 25 seconds left its best to quit and restart).
    10. Once up both flights of stairs (left side) you wanna kill the guys infront of you and just spray the wooden wall infront of you.
    11. Take the flashbangs off the table and throw all 3 into the room there and then (No time for presicion).
    12. Go through the corridor killing everything infront of you remebering there is a guy to your LEFT.
    13. At the end of the corridor if your out of bullets in your MP5 switch ti your pistol and take out the 3 guys coming at you from the left.
    14. When at the hostage situation pop one in his forehead (If your a bit scared and you think you'll miss and all this work would be for nothing you can actually JUMP towards the enemy and kill at point blank).

    Hope this helps and Good Luck
