    There are 4 variants of the Defences these are as follows:

    Barbed Wire
    Auto Turret
    Stationary Machine Gun

    Once you find a chest go up close and hold cn_X to take the Defence out the yellow hazard chest.

    Now to deploy you will see silhouettes of where you can deploy in any holding area, so go into the silhouette of your choice and once again hold cn_X to deploy then this will register as 1 complete.

    Horde Mode has since been added to the game, which makes getting this achievement much easier. You should be able to get 6 defences every 3-5 minutes (including loading).

    Load it up on Normal difficulty in Offline Mode, run inside of the terminal building, and then go to the store to purchase the defences.

    The fastest order I've found to do this is to buy 2 sets of barbed wire and 2 machine guns for the immediate left and right side of the entrance you came in from. Then 2 mortars which are placed upstairs just outside on the rooftops, one for the left side and one for the right side. Quit out after placing all of these and load back in to do it over again.

    (Do note that you must buy each item one at a time and go back to get another after placing the one you're currently holding).
