This achievement requires you equip a soldier with the Bioelectric Skin gene mod in the gene lab (unlocked by researching Chryssalid Autopsy).

This newly modified soldier will sometimes see faint blue pulsing orbs near them, especially on the other side of walls and doors when moving on the front lines, through the tight quarters found on ufo's and battleships. These energy signatures indicate a hidden enemy at that location. Simply lob a rocket or grenade to that location, register a kill, and pop the achievement.

It is also worth noting that the kill can come from any member of your squad. It does not need to be credited to the modified soldier.

As with many of these achievements, don't be afraid to lean heavily on the ability to save at any time. Crash into a room and find a weak, low level alien hiding on the other side of the door. Then simply reload, position your modified soldier close enough to pick up the energy signature, and send a grenade or rocket through the wall to clean it up.
