    I played the very first level on easy mode. I used pistol and melee only. Refilled multiple times and even swapped to primary out of habit (didn't fire though), and healed teammates too. I did not pick up any grenades or special weapons. I was able to place defense kits as well.

    So long as you dont use a primary or heavy weapon, anything goes. Gadets, grenades, melee, and defenses are all fair game.

    I got this on on the Jerusalem chapter 2 with the final version of the pistol I made sure I didn't run out of ammo by using refill crates.

    I used no other weapons just the pistol and a medkit at the end of the mission

    Good luck.

    Crazy DutchmanIf you want to improve this solution:

    1) Before you attempt this achievement: Quit the game and restart it.
    The game seems to unintentionally give you XP for weapons used in previous missions, preventing you from getting this achievement.
    Restarting the game 'clears' this from the game's active memory.


    2a) I can verify that you can place Automated Turrets, Fences, Electric Traps.
    2b) I can verify that you can also use medpacks

    3) Playing this 'offline' with bots on easy works very well, I played Episode 4: Tokyo - Setting Sun.
