    Edit: Added a working link.

    The first major battle on Semper Fi or Die is where you will need to get this achievement. It occurs around the statue of liberty up to the building you seek cover in mid-level.
    All four soldiers you start out with need to survive. The 5th and 6th that you encounter just after the statue of liberty are of no importance.

    Once the level starts and the pistol is handed to you, stay on the left side to pick up a demolition scar to increase your firepower.

    Some tips:

    - Replay the mission on easy/normal
    - Do NOT use cloaking, you'll want to attract attention while having maximum armor up
    - Take note of the blue dots and make sure there aren't any ceph close to it
    - Scout ahead, don't stick with the other marines. Make sure you kill as much as possible in advance
    - At the same time, don't go too far, you'll want to keep an eye out on your team
    - If you have all four alive after a checkpoint and lose one afterwards, you can simply reload the checkpoint and still gain the achievement.

    KindBunny957018Sampson dies & Chang bleeds out. This seems to always happen no matter what. Chino & then 3 others are your responsibility. The other 3 are nameless, even if you mark them on your tac. Very easy to do. Just Sampson & Chang were giving me a headache until I realized that dying is their job in the game.

    Ok this will sound crazy but I just got the achievement on supersoldier difficulty.

    What I did was run as far ahead as possible and even tried to enter the checkpoint room, but it's blocked until you clear the enemies. I then ran back to the squad and there were only 3 left I picked up up the mounted gun and killed the few that were left then moved towards the checkpoint area again when the next drop ship comes. I killed those guys and ran in the building and voilla! I had 4 marines follow me in. Not sure if running ahead did something to the sequence of things or not but worth a stab if you are having problems with this achievement.

    Bernman 117I had a lot of trouble rounding up the 4th one. He just lingered out in the distance. In the end I re-ran the section and they were all in different places and ran towards the entrance where the chievo popped.

    WyyvernNot working for me. I'm only getting two/three joining me inside the building. I know this is a super old achievement but a video from anyone would be very helpful.

    Edit - Scratch that, got it on my next try after posting. I had three in the building and one lost soldier outside.

    Get a better gun then go down to the bottom and protect the guy on the turret.

    When you get through killing all the aliens go into the building you should have 4 guys with you and achievement should pop. The below video really helped me. I got the achievement no problem after trying it this way.

    refer to this youtube video for further advice.
