    The best way to do this is to find a friend, go to Server List -> Community -> Filters, type in the name of the Server: “Zavod” and choose ZavodTest (or any similar PvP server with close respawns). You always spawn 10 meters away from everyone else.
    You should have few backpacks with a weapon right near your respawn on the ground. Take it, reload it, and go to the main road with a friend.
    Then you have to get as far as you can from each other, lay down, press LS to hold breath and shoot.
    Me and my friend did it with AKSU, the most common AR/SMG in the game, without any scopes etc.
    Take your time, hold your breath, shoot 1 bullet at a time and you’ll get it in no time.
    Just make sure that you only see few pixels of your friend as 300 meters is really a lot hehe.

    thesuperbob49This was a pain to get, but I had a much better chance of getting this on a Deathmatch server that takes place at an airfield (as long as no one else was on it or they weren't shooting at us.)

    The server I used to get this achievement is called "ULTIMATE DEATHMATCH PrimeChaos" and the server is loaded with weapons and ammo. It does have some zombies, but as long as we were near the end of the runway they didn't bother us too much. I used the M70 Tundra to get the achievement.

    The easiest way to do this is to just boost. Go on a community server or a private server, (preferably a private server, less people).
    Then, find a gun, preferably a rifle with a scope, if you can find one.

    OPTIONAL: A rangefinder makes this a lot easier, but isn’t necessary. This allows you to see when you’re 300 Meters from someone.

    Have your friend stand still 300 meters away while you take shots at him. It works better if you lower their health a little bit already. You can go ahead and get some bandages on other players in for the “Apply Bandages to Survivors 30 Times” achievement while you’re at it.

    This is for those who have been missing shots a lot or need a good location to do this at. I was able to get this achievement with two other guys and we all got the achievement on our first shots.

    1. Get a Mosin and ammo, depending on the server, this will be a pain or easy as hell.
    2. If you have been using some of the TA guides and servers, you are probably aware of the shipwreck (servers would have deer spawn here) and lighthouse (usually spawn) areas. One person goes on the rocks by the shipwreck, the others go stand on the rocks by the lighthouse. Doesn't matter which side the shooter is on, but it's faster to past the gun off to another person if the shooter is by the lighthouse/spawn.
    3. Turn down sensitivity for both horizontal and vertical movement down to the last tick. Your aim will be easier to control.
    4. Go prone, this makes you have less sway in your gun, and even more when holding your breath.
    5. Set the range of the gun to 300m by hitting up on the d-pad when ADS.
    6. Seems obvious but final step is aim for the head and shoot, you have a very small area to hit it but that tip of the sights has to be directly on the head. Take you time to make sure you nail it.
