    *This is a Metro 2033 achievement*

    I don't know if there are 15 total safe boxes in the game but it's close. It is a little white safe and there is usually a key with a red glowing band attached to it close by.

    You can reload your checkpoint and grind this achievement out at any safe you find in the game. The easiest one is in the mission "Dead City." The key is upstairs near a body in one of the small rooms where you start. Then just run up the stairs (watch for trip wires which you can grind that achievement now too) and the safe is in the back room next to a diary page.

    Added a video of the safe location.

    This achievement, along with 13 others, can be knocked out easily at the first encounter with human enemies in the Lost Tunnel mission. Simply keep reloading the checkpoint if you wish to get this plethora of achievements out of the way. I realize that a lot of them, the weapon kills ones specifically, will come easily when doing your Spartan mode playthrough, but I like to get easy stuff like this out of the way so that I can focus on collectibles and achievements that require a full playthrough or specific areas to obtain. The video below shows this checkpoint farming in action, unlocking most of these achievements. Although I accidentally popped Slice & Dice and Tank before filming them for the video, Tank will come without trying and Slice & Dice is no different than the others. Hope you enjoy!
