*NOTE* This is primarily a solution for the Let it Rain medal (though it will cover Grenade Spree and Cluster Bomb as well, as those simply require fewer kills). I got every other medal without ever reading this achievement description just by completing the main campaign the first time. If you have problems with other medals post in the comments and I'll update this solution to include information on good places to get them. *UPDATE* Now with a Swiss Army solution at the end as requested.

My "Let it Rain" solution:
I believe I found the easiest way to get 10 grenade kills in a row without being hit. Load up B-1 - it is a one-screen map where you defend against a bunch of suicide grunts and a few grunt minors and elites along the way. You start with 3 incendiary grenades and there are 3 more just left of the middle of the map. Throw them at the suicide guys running at you and the next 2 waves will both run into the fire that is left behind and die (which counts as a grenade kill!). I was able to get 10 kills using only 4 grenades, which left 2 to spare in case a throw is off target or the AI pathing manages to miss the flames.

Additional Tips for "Let it Rain" from CyberKnight:
1. You can't shoot anyone. All 10 grenade kills must happen in a row without any other kills. (I don't know why I thought I could mix up some pistol kills too, but that's not allowed.)
2. Watch out for the Elite that drops in the lower left of the map after about the third wave of suicide grunts. He likes to jump out and shoot. You have to be pretty far right for him not to notice you. (Seems like once he starts shooting the turret, you should be ok.)
3. If, like me, you don't seem to have enough kills after about four grenades, aim for the Grunt Majors. They tend to drop a plasma grenade, which can give you one more throw.

"Swiss Army" Solution from DTI April:
(Swiss Army is for getting 5 kills with 5 different weapons - and it appears grenades don't count) B-4 is easy for swiss army - start with assault rifle and magnum, then use a plasma off the grunts and repeater from elite, then there's a shotty on the floor part way along the level. Did it with four weapons and a grenade and it didn't work for me, think it has to be 5 guns.

Another "Swiss Army" solution from kHz RazgriZ
Earliest and also quick way for Swiss Army is on A-5, just to get it out the way to concentrate on others. You start with shotgun(1) as primary and magnum(2) as secondary. Elite's drop repeaters(3), grunts drop plasma pistols(4). You can find assault rifles(5) scattered around the base in pick up pods. Simple
