This is done by using cn_down to throw a rock. When you find a group on enemies preferable in any outpost you haven't taken yet, sneak up on them while remaining undetected and used cn_down (down on the d-pad) to throw a rock and distract them. Do this to 15 different enemies and the achievement will pop.

SIDE NOTE: sometimes it does not register when you distract an enemy and I found it not to work on enemies that have detected me and then I waited for them to "lose sight" of me.

DOUBLE SIDE NOTE: If you are having problems with it registering, try spamming cn_down over and over until you either hear a "huh" / "what was that" or see the enemy start to look around then check to see if it counted. I would sit in one spot near a group of guards and just spam cn_down for a solid 30 seconds and then check the achievement tracker and it always seemed to work.

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
