In order to obtain Proximity Mines you're gonna have to call your Arms Dealer to you and buy them from the explosives menu for $450. The next step is equipping them (bring up your weapon wheel and press RB to swap between explosives) and then killing 30 enemies with them.

Unfortunately, like other achievements in this game, this achievement has a chance of glitching on you as it did for me (I've killed 30+ cops, & 30+ regular enemies with mines). The only option is to wait and see if they fix it in a future update.

I finally got it to unlock after being glitched with more than 1000 kills, trying several different methods/playthroughs, and several tickets to 2K support that were of no help

Had to completely delete the game and all saved data and re-install w/ the 5+ gig update and DLC, though you must play offline after downloading the update. If you need to be online for a moment just to assure you have the slo-mo ability in your vehicle at the very start of the game that's fine, but you must go offline immediately after and keep your own tally. I got 50 or 60 (all gangsters too, no cops) just to make 100% sure I had enough before re-connecting to live. Immediately upon connecting it booted me to dashboard but don't worry, as upon signing back in you should receive the notification your console save is now different from the cloud save 2K has for you. Make sure to use your console save if this option appears and upon loading the game, the achievement should immediately pop

It's definitely a huge headache completely restarting for a single achievement but honestly a more probable fix than waiting on 2K to get around to it eventually. Hope this helps everyone that currently has it bugged/glitched and hopefully we don't all have to resort to this method for achievements in future DLC
