    Although you can simply run across the crumbling areas of Chapter 6 Slums of Kowloon for the achievement, you can also load the checkpoint "Condemned" in chapter select, then go back to the previous area. Press LT to get on the upper level, being careful not to fall (reload the checkpoint if you do), until you get to the collectile (near the heavy machine gun). When you get it, the achievement should pop.

    Vinicius Menti@darksam644, this was posted 6 years ago, not all links last forever. But the link was just for reference, anyway. The solution should work fine (I no longer own an Xbox 360, only PC now, but this is how I got this).

    You'll find the crumbling sewer area right after the check point following the building demolitions. You'll have to dive across a gap to get to the top pathway. Once you're there, keep moving, as the platform'll break away beneath you if you're slow. When you get to corners there should be enough platform around one of the sides where you won't have to dive. Keep going and right after you turn the final corner you'll get the unlock.

    Chapter 6 - Slums of Kowloon Level - Debris Field

    As you progress through the level, you will come across a firefight (after the cutscene in which one of the buildings starts to blow up) with a mass load of enemies. There will be another cut scene in which a couple of enemies bust open a wall. Kill these guys and you will come across a higher walkway and the wet, sewer bottom. Walk and jump across the path as quickly as possible because there are some parts of the floor that will collapse and cause you to fall if you are not quick enough.

    The video below shows the path and when to jump and walk. If you fail and fall down into the water, restart checkpoint and give it another try.

    Credit to BarthaxDravtore for making the video.

    Chapter 6 - Slums of Kowloon

    There is a point where You reach some stairs down into some water. Right after a checkpoint with a Medkit on the left wall. 2 Enemys spawned from there.
    You can go downstairs or jump to the upper level.

    Progress through the water until you reach the next checkpoint !! There are a some explosions and the roof is falling down but no danger.
    Right after the next Checkpoint at the end of the Water go back the way you came and jump up to the upper Level.
    Progress forward and beware of the holes in the Ground. Collect the 3 Origamis there (behind some broken doors!) and right after the last Blue one in a corner the Achievment should pop.

    No need to reload any Chapter. Even if You fall down, run back and try again. Achievment poped for me after 2 trys.
