    To be honest, it's a fairly straight-forward achievement but where I had problems was getting stuck at 80% and the challenge progress resetting. For me at least, dying reset my progress and meant I had to get 20 kills without dying... I went to a car shop and spawned 'the Reaper' which is the big tractor used for the 'fertilizing the land' achievement and went to an outpost, let them call reinforcements and run over everyone I could without dying... if you feel like your gonna die, you can fast travel away and come back as long as you don't die, the progress shouldn't reset. I personally used the Seed Ranch (which is located bottom left of John's region) as my farming outpost as angels would turn up meaning easy kills.

    Good luck.

    I found a repeatable location with enemies to get these three achievements:

    Squash and Run
    Opportunity Knocks
    Explosive Surprise

    In John’s region / Holland Valley, towards the top left of his region (middle left of the overall map), there is person that will give a story mission named Merle Briggs. He is located at the fast travel location called Silver Lake Trailer Park
    He is being held captive with 4 guards, close to a vehicle, all within a close vicinity of each other.
    Because he needs to be freed, you can attempt anything you need and then fast travel back to the location with the enemies reset.
    I find this MUCH easier than attacking an outpost

    Explosive Surprise:
    You can sabotage the truck (you might have to have the enemy come closer to it) without being seen.
    If you fail, you can just fast travel back to the same location and try again

    Opportunity knocks:
    I recommend highlighting the enemies with your binoculars first - it never seemed to work for me when I didn't.
    You can only get 1-4 per try, but distract one enemy at the starting point (from fast traveling) and then the enemy on the far left. After those two, you can try to distract the other 2 "middle" enemies.
    I does not seem to count the same enemy twice, so after a max of 4 enemies distracted, if you fail, or if nothing registers, you can just fast travel back to the same location and try again.

    Squash and run:
    Grab a vehicle and drive up to the location, or grab the truck and run over the 4 enemies.
    Once they are all dead, or if you fail, you can just fast travel back to the same location and try again

    ElSelchoThank you fpr your solution, taking "The Reaper" is so much easier :)
    @Mikeyoj200: did you maybe start a new Game or New Game+? In that case your internal gamecounter resets and you have to get another 20 kills on that save.
