    You can get this achievement during the fourth mission called "Struck Down". As with every other misc. achievement in this game you can play the mission on the easiest difficulty setting and still get it!

    Over the course of the mission Struck Down you will take control over a sniper rifle four times. Each time you have to take out some enemies without missing a single shot!

    1. Section: Before breaching the upper balcony you will take control over the rifle for the first time. This time you really only have to take out one or two enemies. Don't go too crazy here just yet.

    2. Section: After you left the balcony mentioned above you'll find yourself in a trap. You'll take control over the sniper rifle again. This time you have to eliminate several soldiers with RPGs. Several of them are on the upper level and lower level. Take your time and don't shoot too fast. The soldiers will always go through the same motions of getting on their knees and standing back up.

    3. Section: When you found the missing squad member you'll be ambushed again. This time your squad will be pinned down inside the stadium. You'll have to kill most of the enemies standing outside. This time you should watch out that you don't shoot an enemy that will be shot by one of your team members. Otherwise it's rather easy to take out enemies as there are a lot of them.

    4. Section: The last time you take control over the rifle is right when you get into the chopper. Three vehicles with LMGs will arive and you just have to take out the guys standing on top of the cars. They don't really move so they are easy targets.

    If you haven't missed a shot you'll unlock the achievement as soon as the mission ends and the next cut scene starts.

    *Note: Video was taken on the 360. I can replace it with a video taken on the One but I don't want to put two copies of each achievement on my YT channel. If somebody would rather see an Xbox One video let me know and I'll happily provide one for you. Thanks for reading*

    LSC MrSandmanI'm pretty sure you can. But I'm not 100% sure because I never had to reload a checkpoint. It's worth a try though in my opinion

    Sorry that I can't give you a better answer

    bryan dot exeYes, if you mess up you can quickly reload from last checkpoint. I'm embarrassed to say I had to reload a checkpoint about 4 times, but that didn't interfere with the achievement.

    For the Waste Not Achievement, all you have to do is make sure each of your shots form the remote sniper hit a person or a vehicle. This is not too difficult because most of the enemies tend to stand still. As far as I know you either can't fail while looking through the sniper or it takes a while. So I would suggest taking your time to line up each shot and you should be able to get it without much of an issue
