This is most easily done at the beginning of the game during Mission 1, "Post-Human." You can get it over with your first time playing through, or go to Campaign > Replay Mission to replay it.

The key to the achievement is not being detected by enemies other than your victim. It’s actually OK if you spook the guy just before you kill him, just as long as no one else sees you – as long as your HUD’s Threat Meter stays out of the red. For this reason, the beginning of “Post-Human” makes it easy-as-pie on Recruit difficulty because no enemies are paired or clustered; they are all spread out. Even if he shouts just before getting toolboxed, no one else will hear him.

After your ally Psycho opens the first door for you, the very first CELL enemy in the game is standing with his back to you. The red and black toolbox just inside the room will be perfect for all your Poltergeist kills – hold cn_X to pick up the toolbox, tap cn_RB to cloak, aim, then pull cn_RT for a killing throw. Use your visor to mark the other enemies in the area – there are five of them in the main area. (You cannot use the visor while holding a throwable object.) The seventh victim is on the far side from where you entered, upstairs near the objective point – as you climb the stairs his back is turned to you. If Psycho stole a kill or two in that first room, don’t worry.

After you open the door and follow Psycho for the cutscene where he gives you the Predator Bow, you’ll have another large room with eight enemies, six of which are on the level where you start. There are plenty of enemies here, and plenty more toolboxes, for you to finish with the achievement. This second room is also ideal for the two bing-bang achievements related to the Predator Bow:
Crysis 3Arrow to the Knee!The Arrow to the Knee! achievement in Crysis 3 worth 42 points"Single Player: End an enemy's career as a CELL operative by wounding him in the knee with an arrow!
Crysis 3ImproviserThe Improviser achievement in Crysis 3 worth 24 pointsSingle Player: Kill two enemies in one strike using the environment

If you’re finding this second room more difficult than the first to get Poltergeist kills, you can redo the first room by replaying the mission again, but DO NOT quit to the main menu until after getting the checkpoint save that follows the Predator Bow cutscene. Once you get that save, your kills are counted, so you’re free to start over after that.

Happy spooky throwing!
