Firstly, let me state that I spent many hours of stress trying to configure the easiest and best solution for this. Hopefully, with this solution it will be a lot less stressful for you.

Secondly, make sure the character you're using is of a low level, or create a new character. This will keep your enemies abilities to a minimum.

You'll need to use the following settings from the Main Menu.

Freeplay > Private Game
Game Mode: Stopwatch
Play Mode: Solo
Map: Refuel
Match Settings > Match Duration: 30 minutes
Difficulty: Hard
Min Team Size: 4
Max Team Size: 4
Friendly Fire: Checked
All other settings can be left to default.

You'll now have 30 minutes to attempt this, rather than having to keep restarting the game when/if you fail to get it. Make sure the difficulty is set to "Hard". Your AI seem to be a bit smarter when it's on this difficulty level.

Start the game.

Upon loading, make sure your on the team of "Resistance". Now once the match has started, head straight towards the Command Post in front of you and change your class to Operative. Now make sure you change your objective to "Guard the Storage Depot" from the objective wheel and head towards the Storage Depot. It's now up to your Soldier teammates to blow up the door. Once they have, collect the Hydraulic Fluid and wait for a couple of your teammates to join you by your side. If they're 2 Soldiers, kill them and at least 1 will respawn as an Engineer.

Do not proceed towards the Aircraft Hangar just yet. You'll need to wait for the enemy to place mines. You'll know they have when you hear your guy announce it over the radio comms or by looking at your objective wheel (it will have "Spot Mine" as one of the objectives).

Head towards the Hangar entrance where there are 2 ramps which slope down towards the airplane. You'll often find that the enemy deploys the mines in front of the place where you pour the Hydraulic Fluid. I would try and avoid these ones as they are a little too close to the enemy respawn point and you'll find yourself overwhelmed with enemy fire. Instead, they should place mines on the small balcony, just as you go down the 2 ramps at the entrance. This is your best place to earn this achievement.

Make sure you have an Engineer with you and spot the mine by aiming at it whilst looking down your weapons sight. This will "spot" the mine. Now, run towards it and stand on top of it. This will arm the mine, but make sure you do not step off of it otherwise it will explode. What this does is sets a new objective for any Engineers on your team. The Engineer will no doubt go running off fighting the great battle, so cover him as much as possible by shooting at any nearby, visible enemies. You can take cover by simply crouching. Once the firefight has ended, he should come to your aid and defuse the mine. You'll know he's disarming it as he'll get his spray can out.

Credit goes to immikeulate over at for the original solution.
