EDIT: It's been quite awhile since I got this achievement and it looks like I might have gotten lucky. Please read comments because this achievement seems kind of glitchy.

Before you start this, make sure you have an Academy of Science and it's been around long enough to finish your clone.

The way I got this achievement is during the same time as I was trying to get the "It's a Trap!" achievement, which requires you to blow up 5 rebels with the mausoleum upgrade. The reason for this is because the best way to get that achievement is to have an absurd amount of rebels and a very low number amount of soldiers. In my instance, I had 42 rebels and 2 soldiers. To get this I made a save during the campaign, and then destroyed everything that wasn't industrious (homes, entertainment, churches, hospitals, etc) and lowered all wages to $1.

The whole reason I mention this is because your avatar does engage in fights at times. Your clone will jump in on a rebellion. But with 40 vs 2, he will very likely die. Achievement pop. However, others have tried this and the clone ran away before it could die.

This is how I got mine and I wasn't even trying for this one. So if you still need "It's a Trap", use this strategy and get both!

It's recently been suggested that your clone has to actually kill the assassin, not the other way around. However, I know for a fact in my game, my clone died. I don't remember if he killed the assassin in the process or not though.
