    This does not have to be achieved in one round.

    Enter Terrorist Hunt on Single Player and choose Kill House as the map. Set it to Casual difficulty so that it doesn't become an annoyance and set density to High. Equip yourself with a decent pistol because that's all you're allowed to use on the ropes!

    When you start, you'll be facing a staircase. Head up the staircase and onto the 'catwalk', which is the long platform down the side of the map. There are two rappel hooks for you to use, you should get on the first one.

    Fire a bullet to attract attention to yourself and they'll come running to try and take you down. Take them down one by one and you will unlock the achievement after 25 kills on the rope.

    EthigyGreat solution. Can confirm the kills do count even if you die.

    Here is a video I just made to illustrate how to get all 25 in one terrorist hunt on the kill house map. Note that it does not need to be done in one round. In fact all kills you score while suspended from a rope are counted, including Terrorist Hunt, Story Mode and Versus mode. But this details - in my opinion - the most effective and quickest way to nab this achievement.

    Be sure to set the difficulty to casual or you will be cannon fodder on that rope and the enemy density to high to make sure you get all 25. I also recommend lone wolf because otherwise Jung and Michael are guaranteed to steal a sizable portion of your kills.

    Edit: Video re-created in glorious HD!

    Pretty easy to do. You can try to do it through story or since it is only 25 kills you can do Kill House on Realistic with low enemy density on Terrorist Hunt. When you start off at the train car, go to the left side of the building. There should be one guy on the platform between the two building. Kill him with a silencer on your weapon. Then climb the rope on the side of the building half way up. Fire a shot with no silencer. 2-4 guys should pop around the corner of the building on the middle of the map side, and then one guy on the other side. You will probably get killed after 4-6 kills, so just rinse and repeat and you should get this achievement in less than 10 min, depending on how quickly you move. The map reloads quickly on replays, so you figure 4 kills per try , you should only have to play the map 6-7 times, at about 1:00-1:30 per try. I posted a video I found of someone doing the story mode way so see which one works better for you!

    The way I got this seems to be different than others, but bear with me.

    I got this achievement after downloading the map pack for the game, and realizing how awesome it was that they brought back Calypso Casino from RSV 1. Put the wave density for however much you want, clear the terrorists at the start (I'd suggest a long range weapon) and proceed down the stairs and stick to the left side of the map (from the perspective of the stairs). At the end of the roof, there are two rappel points, and when you take out the on the one on the lower floor while inverted on your trusty rappel, 4 or 5 others will cluster around him. I got around 6 guys at once with that, then you invert again and look to the top of your rappel point, there will be 1 or 2 other terrorists standing there. Just peg em, and you have 6 or 8 already (Don't miss or they freak out and start shooting at you, and you have a pistol, they usually seem to have LMG's).

    When I got the map pack, it was free. Not sure about now, but regardless, I hope this helps.

    If you couldn't be bothered to select the right T-Hunt mission and change the settings, there are several spots in the story that make this achievement much simpler than the ratio would suggest.

    Relatively early into Scene 1 of the Theatre level (5th level I believe), there is a spot right after a checkpoint that you have to rappel down to a lower floor in the building.

    Take the 2nd rope from the far right, and when you rappel down there will be a guy to shoot immediately. Afterward, 5-7 guys will slowly trickle into the room. If they don't, fire a couple more shots and they'll come in, but if they don't you can just reload the checkpoint. I always reloaded before "Breaking In" through the window as I was unsure how soon after jumping through the next checkpoint would be.

    The beauty with this game is that it auto saves your stats immediately, so if you die or reload a checkpoint you lose no progress. This is only 25 kills, so you can probably get it within 5-6 checkpoint reloads easily.

    I recommend playing on Casual for this so that you can take more bullets before being killed. The first guy may still kill you though since it is effectively a point blank distance. The other guys that storm the room will likely cause you no serious harm.
