The best place to get this achievement by far is on the MOUT map as Lonsta daMonsta states

Mode: Co-op Sector
Type: Create Custom Type
Respawns: Infinite
Enemy Density: Infinite
Base Zones: 1
Zone Failure: 1 Zone
Enemy Difficulty: Novice
Map: MOUT
Time: 5 minutes

Once you get to "A" (the building your team is defending) go up the stairs (I recommend the one accessed from the left side of the building that goes inside in stead of the front stairs, as they leave you open to enemy fire) and take positions on the first level, don't go up the second pair of stairs. If you have a full fire team of four real people you can take the positions of the group in the video below. With three auto-riflemen and a team lead you will have enough power to hold the enemy back no problem. As the enemy is flowing constantly towards your team, getting suppressions wont be difficult. Fire in a thin oval, spreading around the bullets, maximising the potential that the dumb AI will realize it's being fired at and go prone. Don't worry about killing them, our team killed around 100 a mission.

The team lead can take this time to knock out the "Indirect Fire Support Award as well, giving him/her something to do while the machine gunners are tearing it up.

Now, if, like our group, you could only get three real people into the map and a boost account as the fourth, you will have to do things a little differently. Make the boost account your team leader, the artilery he provides isn't needed as three auto-riflemen will still be able to put enough hate down range to keep the enemy at bay. To set up, have two people who are going to be the primaries on the mission go up the stairs at "A", have one lay prone just before the stairs as the video below shows, and have the other crouch behind him. This will provide a modicum of cover for the gunners, and allows for two guns pointing down range. The prone gunner at the stairs will get the 30 suppressions every time, and we found that our crouched gunner got it almost every time, only missing it a few times. Your third machine gunner needs to take position prone behind the green dumpster at the front of the building. This provides him with cover from all the enemies coming from the front, and allows him to take out the enemy soldiers that slip through your team mates field of fire once they get to the stairs. The AI seems confused by the stiars and will stop at them before going up, allowing the gunner to rack up kills, but suppressions are unlikely. Don't worry about him being surrounded, the vast majority of AI will travel down the main road, completely oblivious to him. BE CAREFUL! Occasionally, once every few matches a bad guy will crawl all the way around the buildings and sneak up on your ground gunner. Take him out quickly, if you loose your ground gunner the stairs will no longer be covered and the enemy will be free to go up them and wipe out the other two.

Once one of the gunners up top pops the Achievement, just have him switch out with the ground gunner.

NOW, SHOULD ONE OF YOUR PARTY NOT BE ABLE TO DOWNLOAD THE MOUT MAP (other country, internet issues, etc) or you're finding the MOUT method too difficult the following is the best alternative. This one will be a little tricky, but once your party has it's bearings it wont be too terribly tough. I highly recommend that if only one of your party is unable to use MOUT, have everyone else take care of it there (even if you have to use a split-screen boost acct) as it is much faster and more likely that you will get enough suppressions.

Mode: Co-op Sector
Type: Create Custom Type
Respawns: Infinite
Enemy Density: Infinite
Base Zones: 1
Zone Failure: 1 Zone
Enemy Difficulty: Novice
Map: Canyon Depot
Time: 5 minutes

Split your fire team into two groups, Group 1 being two auto-riflemen and Group 2 being your team lead and the other A-RM. Have Group 1 head towards "A" and defend it at all costs. They should get plenty of suppressions, but that is a secondary goal to defending the base. Have Group 2 (the group with the gunner that needs the chievo) go accross the bridge from where you spawn instead of going down into the canyon, continue along the road until they reach a pit, with sand bags on their side and a truck on the other. There's ammo crates by the truck, ignore them! The enemy comes from the canyon behind that truck, and you'll be a sitting duck if you attempt to resupply there. Group 1 has ammo crates at the base, group 2's gunner needs to resupply off of the TL. The enemy will flood by group 2's position, but will proceed to group 1's position, only suppressed bad guys will crawl through the pit in the prone position towards group two. Not as efficient as MOUT, but it will get the job done.

Thanks to AirNath, mak 90, fararre31 for helping me soldier through this and to Lonsta daMonsta for pointing us towards MOUT
