    On the level REGINA, you'll come to a section where you use your railcar to push another railcar forward and out of the way.

    To get the achievement you'll want a good automatic weapon such as the Kalash or Bastard Gun, and you'll want to equip Military-grade ammo, and aim behind yourself.

    There will be a total of about 5 waves of enemies, with 3-5 enemies per wave. As soon as you finish pushing the other railcar to the end of the track, the achievement will unlock.

    If you fail at any point by taking damage, make sure to "Load Last Checkpoint". You can also "Load Last Checkpoint" after gaining the achievement to get your military-grade ammo back!

    During the Regina mission, once you start pushing the train car forward using your railcar, you will be attacked by several waves of Watchmen. I suggest switching to Military Grade ammo to take them out quicker. If they jump onto your railcar you're still ok so long as you kill them before they damage you. The attacks are scripted at certain locations on the track, so feel free to get out of your railcar to explore for collectibles/Moral Points in between attacks. Once you push the train car forward through a switch in the track, the achievement unlocks.

    Check out the video below for a full playthrough of the game showing all collectibles, miscellaneous achievements like this one, and the Moral Points I obtained (I skipped a lot of them) in order to get the Redemption achievement. The Regina mission starts at timestamp 44:16.

    SockGORE828Are you sure about getting out of the rail car to get collectibles, because I killed all of the mutants while in the rail car, but took damage out of the car collecting the note and it did not pop for me.

    LifeExpectancyYou likely took a swing without realizing it while inside the car. I unlocked it on two different accounts taking damage outside the car. Just make sure only the enemies in th side rooms hit you, not the ones on the main track, even when on foot.

    A completely different strategy for people having issues with this one --

    So, some good news, the room to the right of where you start pushing the railcar to begin this sequence has a Shambler at the end (aka the six-shot shotgun). You can use this to make the achievement trivial, while saving yourself some military grade ammo.

    With the Shambler in tow, simply drive the railcar until you see your first watchman, then STOP. Watchmen come in waves of three or four and are auto-triggered when passing a certain point, so stopping to fight makes life easier and aiming better (and doesn't add extra watchmen to the fight). Upon seeing the watchmen, simply wait for them to jump up onto the railcar, as they give you a huge target while sitting on the car before they attack you. One shot from the shotgun will down the watchman (you'll know as they go flying off), so six shots from your Shambler should take the wave down easily. Don't waste ammo shooting at them as they're running toward the car as this is unnecessary, just use your Shambler on them the moment they climb up.

    Once the wave is down, don't forget to reload. Then travel on, waiting to see the next wave to stop and fight again, repeat for a few more waves until the end of the level. Easy.

    ameracin desi+1 great solution!

    After trying out a few other recommended strategies with no success, this solution worked on first try. A few things I would like to add:
    1) the shambler is located in the door on the right side just before Regina comes in contact with the stopped railcar. If your railcar hits the stopped railcar then you've gone too far and you passed the room. Enter the room and fight off 4-6 watchmen. There is also a key and safe somewhere inside. In the back-right side of that entire indoor area is the shambler on the ground.
    2) I was unable to use any military ammo with the shambler, or at least I wasn't able to figure out how to. You don't need it, the shambler is 1 shot kill. I played on standard difficulty.

    Good luck!

    EmptyChimp+1 vouch, just got the chieve using this method and it was relatively painless

    a couple notes for people:

    Auditory cues are a good way to tell when you can kill the watchmen jumping on Regina. Wait for the metal sound as they jump to shoot, to get 1 hit 1 kill each time with the Shambler

    Also, change gas mask filters in between encounters. It probably won't be a big deal for most, but i lost an attempt as such
