    Once you're level 18, red circles will show up on you minimap (not the big map). Enter it and it will say that you have to kill a member to start the fight. The red circles are based on time of day. Some appear around noon, and vanish around 20:00. Others are only available at night (20:00 to 04:00) (thanks to A Gamer X360 for this piece of info). As far I can remember, this gang attack was during daylight.

    I recommend 'Boneyard', which is at the south-east of Sandy Shores. there is a perfect hideout for you right on top of a small building. NOT the warehouse building, but next to that, to the south of it. You'll have to push open a fence gate to get to it.

    You can take cover up there from each side and you'll have a good view on the battlefield. You'll have to kill 15 enemies to finish the fight, and I killed 13 of them simply from that roof. There is no ladder to worry about, and they will only come from 1 or 2 sides (south-west).

    The achievement popped after I killed all the gang members, not after I killed the 10th one.

    I got this achievement on my very first try using the SMG with a scope and a supressor.

    This is also a map for Survival, but there it is a bit harder with the helicopters.

    BasanakinWeird. I would just try and hang around the Boneyard, do the nearby Mission ("Battle of Alamo" it is called i believe) and drop back into the free roam. I noticed the red circles pretty often after i dropped out a match.

    Lonsta DaMonstaSorry, apparently I have a different problem now. I am rank 26 and I've never gotten a gang fight to show up once, after driving around for literally 2-3 hours real time. Any ideas? I can be riding with someone and it will show up for them, but no matter what I do... not me :(

    Just to add to the above guides i have found that the easiest gang attack for me is to be found on the northern (rougly in the centre) most edge of the map next to a DM match called commune. you enter the area by driving under the dual carrige way. Just there is a blue bin that you can take cover behind once the gunplay starts. all of the enemies spawn in front of you and move left to right or visa versa though your field of fire with no one spawning behind you making it a complete turkey shoot. hope this helps!

    z 4assed monkeyArcticfirE, writing "+1" in a comment doesn't actually give the solution's author a thumbs-up vote. You have to actually VOTE.

    Ben ReynoldsThanks! I can't vote as I have GTA5 on the PS3 but worked perfectly for me. Looks like it may be a 2000-0400 job.

    If you vote negatively, please comment why.
    I am open to editing this until it is clear and concise for everyone! :)

    EDIT: Thanks Tgamesmaster for the level requirement :)

    Once you reach level 18, you will start to see big red circles in your mini-map.
    That is the location of a gang attack.
    To trigger the gang attack, you have to shoot while in the circle.
    The gang attack can range from 15-30 enemies.
    Do your best to take cover and get headshots.
    Once the gang attack is over and you've killed at least 10 without dying, the achievement should pop.

    The location where I got my achievement was around Grove Street.*
    *will edit with exact location soon
