    I think that the Motion Sensor Support Item is the easiest and quickest to complete, it's the one I just finished for the achievement. There are two feats, one for dispensing them, and the other for them detecting enemies. Dispensing is easy, after you throw one, wait for the box to fill then throw another. Throw one as soon as you spawn, then run somewhere else to throw another as soon as you can. I'd recommend playing Fumigation and tossing one at each of the points.

    You need to dispense a total of 500, and have detected 2500 enemies with them, then this achievement will be yours!

    If you're curious, you can tell which enemies you've detected by looking at your radar, normally enemies appear as small red dots, if they've been detected by your sensors they appear as larger red circles. If you really want to aim for this, any time you see some enemies detected by someone using the targeting goggles, go towards them and throw a sensor at them. Rather than get into a firefight right away, run to where your teammates are fighting, toss a sensor, then start shooting the baddies. It really just takes time to get this one, which makes it really pretty easy, and it's actually pretty useful in the objective gametypes, Fumigation and to a lesser extent Psych Warfare, less useful in TDM because the enemies can go wherever they please.

    Broon43Thanks, I got this Cheev by using the motion sensor. Not only is it easy to max out by continuously dropping them each match, but you will rack up some serious bonus Xp.
    In about 5 hours, I maxed out using this item and moved up from level 30 to 52, approximately.

    KanchanaburiI did this with my turbo controller over night. Unlocked the sensor, although it didn't seem to start counting until i reached level 18 and unlocked the support tab. Anyways, turboed the RB and A buttons on team death match and went to sleep. My guy threw sensors for the night and woke up and I had the achievement.

    ShadowShould also include that you must be level 18 before you can do the motion sensor feats

    SK DiabolicMotion Sensor went faster, I'm doing both for the XP and that 250k takes quite awhile compared to detected 2500.

    I don't have the achievement unlocked yet but I should have it real soon. It appears there are two other options in the Support Items that are easy to max out.

    Airspace Denier and the Care Package

    I have opted to do the Care Package just for the fact that when I deploy it it not only gives my team health but it also resupplies ammunition. As mentioned about objective games are the best place to use these items. I drop them at every objective so my team can get some health and ammo if they are being fired upon. The Care Package will aid the enemy as well if they get within its range but regardless. It still works well for your team and like the Motion Detector they all three only have two feats to complete before the achievo pops.
