    Very simple. Do not do this online. Go to local and play by yourself. Set the game options>player options health double and fast Regen.

    Play on stone haven or Stonehenge. I forget the name. In the top right corner of the map if your back was facing the castle, there is a burning 1 story house and next to it there is a 2 story house. Simply camp on the stairs of the 2 story house. Call in your squad mate and move around the top floor so he eventually gets into the corner. When the enemies go up the stairs they will turn and look towards him leaving you to shoot them in the back. I suggest you get the fp6 shotgun as it is a 1 shot kill even on the decimation class enemies. Very easy to do and I got it in about 25 minutes.

    GsO LightGood guide, also remember to pick up the sentry gun or attack helicopter when the killstreak rewards drop, they are very helpful.

    B4RN4RD5K1This strategy is amazing! Tried on my own and kept failing on Wave 17. Very frustrating. Booted up split screen, moved my guest account into position and I completed Wave 20 in no time. Thanks!

    Prison Break-go to tower, one person needs to watch ladder, other watch stairs. That way no one sneaked up on you. Bascically youve created a choke point. Use I.E.D.'s as much as possible. Get turret and vultures during loot round. Closeout challenges at beginning of each round if possible so you can get mini-gun w/ explosive rounds trust me it does wonders. Perk up w/ sleight of hands and steady aim. Do not use USR or any bolt action rifles shotguns and machine guns only. Do not call squad member at same time reserve each for different times. That way you can have someone to revive you if both of u go down. It also helps that loot rounds count as a round so in essence you have around sixteen rounds to contend to. Lastly don't be sacred. When u see a juggernaut they are actually easy to kill. Hope this helps.

    The other guides on here work as well, but I just thought I would give my way that I completed it with. So, as the other guides say, load up Stonehenge on local play with 2 controllers. You can do this with the A.I. ghost companion, but they aren't always reliable and saving them for revival is what kept me going on round 20. You also want to have custom settings with double health and fast regen. On Stonehenge, you want to go to the two story building with both controllers (or all people) and have on person sit in left hand corner of the second floor as if you were looking at the floor from the very top of the stairs. This person (or second controller) should stay here the entire game and you should camp on the stairs. The enemies will then come into the building and turn to look at the guy on the second floor and you are then able to shoot them in the side without getting shot at by most of the people. Once the enemies get to the bottom of the stairs they will start to charge at you, so try to not let that happen.

    You can essentially use any weapon you want, but I actually went through the entire game using the pistol because it regenerates ammo on it's own. I'm not sure if I would recommend this thought because it got really hard in the later rounds. I would probably recommend using the FP6 shotgun and try your best to get slight of hand so that you aren't held up by reloading.

    So just keep using this same strategy until you get to round 20 and the achievement should pop.

    NOTE: Whatever you do, do not let the riot shield guys get to the bottom of the stairs to charge at you, because around round 18 they will screw you over so much and could cost you the entire game. Try your best to kill them while they are turned looking at the person in the corner.

    Hope this helps!
