    The Booby Trap ability unlocks at multiplayer level 26.

    In your loadout, assign Booby Trap to cn_LB or cn_RB. I would advise using the Overall Cooldowns perk to increase the amount of times you'll be able to use the ability in the match.

    All adversarial multiplayer game modes and maps should be suitable for going for this achievement. Walk up to the base of a lift and hit the corresponding bumper to lay the trap. Along with the sound effect, you will notice that a successfully trapped lift appears to have a visual glitch.

    You can bait pursuers by climbing the structure where that lift would take them, or you can just set traps when you can and hope for the best.

    Below is harrymike schmier's video demonstration, for which I take no credit:


    (Originally written only to mention this ability unlocking at level 26, because other solutions neglected to mention it. For some time I was unaware that those solutions were deleted, raising my partial solution to the top of this page. It is now a full solution, so please come back and dust off these negs.)

    I struggled with getting this ach and I finally found something that worked for me on both the 360 and the One.

    First, make sure you have unlocked, purchased, and set Booby Trap in your active loadout.

    This ach did not pop in a private match, so then go to a public match.

    I found that the relic matches worked best. Find a lift closest to the relic you are defending and booby trap it. Stay in the white area, defend, hide, whatever, as if you die your trap will disappear. If you get stunned while defending, your trap will remain active. Once the trap is active, you can watch your cooldown and place another if you like.

    On the 360 it took 2 matches before someone used it and on the One it took 4.

    I got this on manhunt but I would imagine any of the hunting adversial modes will do. Simply place a booby trap on a lift, and wait for someone to use it. I was also climbing the side of a tower where the lift was. Maybe that baited them. Shouldn't be too hard

    Mobius EvalonI was at the bottom of the leaderboard when I got the achievement and was both hunter and hunted. I died setting the booby trap because I was shot with the pistol, but the guy immediately used the lift afterward and I received the achievement. I get the feeling if you booby trap a lift and it kills anybody that it'll count.
