    Contrary to what the solution above says, you can keep shooting after the combine get there and only take minimal damage. Afterwards you can either reload or just kill yourself. That said, the most important part of shooting is lining up your shot. Don't make the mistake I made and shoot from far away. It is much easier to shoot close up, as shown in this video.

    ObsessiveCatManFor those who missed the achievement the first time around (like myself) you can get this on Chapter 5 Black Mesa East. When you load up the chapter, it is roughly 12 minutes of story progression until you get to the area to do the achievement. There are no enemies from the start of the chapter up to the achievement.

    Save as soon as Dog gets the ball out, and just aim slighty above the net, as the ball will (usually) not bounce too far. If you can't make the basket before the Combine arrive, just reload the save.
    You could save while holding the ball looking above the net, and if it doesn't go in just reload the save and aim higher/lower.

    ApricotCrocheadGuys, its super easy, you only need to get it through the hoop twice, doesn't matter which direction. As soon as you get DOG's ball, just shoot it up through the hoop, so stand beneath the hoop and shoot up. And if you lucky, it will come back down through the hoop in the same shot, and BAM!, achievement. Least thats how I got it.

    When u go to the junkyard with dog and Alex u will a have to play catch. Now above Alex is a basketball hoop. I would recommend saving. Now shoot above the net a little bit and if the carbine come befor u get it in just reload the save and keep tying until u get it in it took me for reloads befor I got it. So much work for 2gs
