This one is pretty straightforward. From the time you spawn in a new Survival Mode game, you must go 50 full days without firing a shot from a firearm.

For ease and simplicity, my recommendation would be to do this on Pilgrim difficulty on the Mystery Lake map. It has plenty of ice fishing holes, deer carcasses, and rabbit clearings, and cat tail stalks for sources of food that don't require the use of a rifle.

To be crystal clear, you cannot fire a firearm, period. Even missed shots will negate the achievement. Presumably this also includes the flare gun, but I am not certain. Archery is not a problem, as are stones, so you can bow and rabbit hunt to your heart's content.

I recommend doing this concurrently with the Ready for When the SHTF and Living Off the Land achievements.
