    Malva sector on Venus is a Dark Sector Excavation, level 10-20 and how I got this achievement. Unfortunately, with the starchart change, it is no longer an excavation but a survival. If it's the same map though, that should work well if you can go into a stealth mode. A potential substitute according to Geoffistopheles is Venus - Kiliken with level 5-7 Corpus, although not as good as infested.

    I used Loki for the invisibility, and this map because one of the Corpus tilesets spawns you right next to several zip lines on a roof. That is one of the only tilesets in any mission that has native zip lines and is fairly easy to access.

    The tileset spawn you want spawns you on a roof near some ziplines. If you don't get the roof spawn, abort the mission, and start it again. I got it 1st try, then 4th try doing this.

    From there, just jump down off the roof, activate the Extractor, wait for it to die to the infested, then run through or around the building back to the ziplines. If you stand under them and press cn_X it will automatically put you onto the lower one if you're standing close enough!

    So, get the Infested to follow you there, activate Invisibility, jump onto the zipline and kill the Infested with a silent weapon(I used Loki's mod Hushed Invisibility which makes weapons silent while invisible). Otherwise a bow would work well if it's strong enough.

    The Infested will keep spawning, just lead them to the zip line if they aren't close enough, and it goes fast! I got all 30 in a couple minutes.

    Note: I have Ivara, but she's at level 1, so I couldn't test out her ziplines. If you don't have Ivara, Loki works really well on this map! If you don't have Ivara OR Loki, Loki's invisibility unlocks sooner than Ivara's Prowl by a few levels.

    GeoffistophelesAs a heads up, Malva is no longer a Dark Sector Excavation, but Survival. I did this on Venus - Kiliken with level 5-7 Corpus, though it wasn't as good as it would've been with Infested.

    Shadow 00 FoxThanks for the note--are there any other dark sector's available with ziplines that you've seen?

    Alternatively use Excalibur and radial blind as for whatever reasons those stuns count for stealth kills (no stealth bonus affinity though)
    This gives you full control of where the enemies will be and allows use of any weapon along with being the frame most players start with. If you have a friend with an excalibur frame even they can stun for you and you still get credit.

    I did these on earth, coba sector, plenty of ziplines and only infected that will all gather around the defend point.

    Vr EnglishBig thumbs up from me, other solutions didn't appeal, I just equipped a Cernos on an Excalibur frame, equipped Streamline so I could increase how often I cast Radial Blind and I was done before wave 5 :)

    Gloss666Another thumbs up from me, this solution works perfectly for those with only the Excalibur Suit.

    No need to be invisible, can be done with any Warframe.

    Mission: Cambria on Earth

    This mission has loads of long ziplines every time, use a bow or other silent weapon, there are patrolling Grineer-soldiers in every area, plus there will be wild kubrows which spawn from kubrow dens, just keep shooting the dens and more kubrow will come out.
