This can be done solo on Easy difficulty.
An easy spot to hold out is right at the PDW-57 below the spawn which happens to be beside the Quick Revive elevator. You can get there by buying the spawn door, then clearing the debris for the escalator. Alternatively you can take the elevator down to the floor by hopping onto it if you want to save some points (this applies only in Solo mode).
Either way you will see the gun on the wall beside the elevator shaft on the floor below the spawn. Be sure to pick up Quick Revive if you're playing solo, which becomes available to you whenever the perk machine drops down/comes up to that floor (in co-op this elevator shaft stays powered off). Buy the PDW and hold by the window where you can see the Dragon. Watch the barricade by the elevator to the left and aim at the head! Buy more ammo when you need it (only 500 points). The only hard part is when the Minion wave comes. A helpful tip to deal with these guys is to make sure that you have Target Assist turned on in your Options menu. If you Aim with cn_LT repeatedly with this option turned on you'll keep 'snapping' to your targets so you'll miss less shots. Watch the video below for an explanation on this trick.
As soon as round 10 starts, the achievement will unlock.
Your best alternative is at the Mystery Box in the upside-down skyscraper. Another alternative is by the AK-74u, but that one is more dangerous since zombies can hop up on the overlook where the gun is.
