    After struggling with the Acropolis method, I searched and found this one. It's a lot easier to set up and if you mess up the checkpoint is right when you enter the room.

    Setup, as seen in the video: Chapter Replay Elite, Soviet Installation, Adventurer. No cards were equipped.

    Don't be afraid to get real close to the group once the third guy walks over.

    All credit to PowerPyx for the awesome video.

    None of the previous solutions work anymore. You can't get the achievement by shooting an explosive. The best way is still replaying Acropolis and having the opening guys rush you back at the tent. Make sure to play Replay Level Elite and equip the highest damage shotgun you've got.

    AH KeithThis method as of 28/11/16 works.

    A few tips:

    - Using the card Boomstick: Shotguns do 25% more damage helps, but isn't necessary.
    - I used the Thunderclap Shotgun. Does the most damage of any Shotgun in the game.

    I struggled with the guide by Zasta above, as I'm not sure why, but every time I made it to the part where you go up the steps and shoot the bridge, there was no one on the bridge. They were ALWAYS at the bottom (one guy jumping off it as i proceeded up the steps).

    I tried score challenge mode, level replay, etc. nothing would spawn the bridge the way it should've been (I missed this on the original campaign play).

    I used the acropolis level as my method to complete this. If you go back and look at the guide Zasta posted on how to get the kill 5 enemies with a poison arrow. You can follow that method.

    BUT. you need a gas can. If you proceed to the part on the Acropolis where you see the cut scene and draw their to the left behind one of the stands/boxes (not in the back room area) is a gas can. I set the difficulty on the lowest setting so i didn't have to worry about dying trying to get the can.

    Run over, grab it, and head back towards the step/ramp up as Zasta described, but throw the gas can at the base of the ramp/steps. Head up to the tent/campfire and wait a little. One/two enemies may come up after you, but the rest should gather up right around your gas can. Walk down, take a few slugs/shots to the chest, and blast away at the gas can with your shotgun. BOOM Achievement yours!


    As noted by MulticronX, if you stealth kill the guy on the left when he's yellow (unwatched), it makes getting to the gas can easier undetected!

    Ri0tRoBSeems the achievement is somehow glitched right now. None of the solutions work right now, eben if 5 people die from one blast. Bummer.

    UnmatchedBraceI skipped the gas can, but in the same area softened up some guys with the pistol and then backed up so they'd funnel through the entrance. Then softened them up some more as they came through. Switched to the shotgun and finally managed to unlock it after a couple tries.

    The gas can and barrel solutions did not work for me.

    This also worked for the 5 in 10 seconds rifle achievement.
