    During Mission 4: Proxy War, you'll regroup with the troops, and storm the base upon the missile strike, sprint through all the enemies to spot 2 helicopters flying in around the base including one coming in for a landing. As the helicopter lands, it will usually drop of 4 enemies, and if you throw the molotov at the group right as they jump off, it should ignite them and unlock the achievement. However, if you're having difficulty getting the chopper to spawn with a full squad, you should be able to run up the side, take it out, and then have a group of 4+ enemies attack you from the right, usually lining up for an easy molotov as shown in the video.

    Additionally, you can reload the checkpoint and grab all 3 of these achievements in the same spot:

    In Mission 4 (Proxy War) towards the beginning of the mission you can easily unlock this achievement as well as two others.

    To get Ashes to Ashes, after infiltrating the base start running towards one of the two helicopters. When you get close enough/under one of them, throw a molotov to destroy it. This will get you the four kills needed for this achievement, as well as the "Wild Fire" achievement for taking down a helicopter with a molotov.

    From here you can reload the checkpoint and shoot the enemy normally to get the "Long Way Down" achievement.

    I found another method on Mission: 13 Going Dark

    Throw your molotov in the window of the truck circling around the campus.

    Molotovs are located in the pool area right by the hostage above where the pool is drained

    Mission 4: Proxy War

    After infiltrating the base right at the start of the mission you will have to take down two helicopters, get close enough to the helicopter that is about to land and throw your Molotov Cocktail by pressing RB on your controller.

    On the mission Proxy War, complete it as normal until you have finished with the second armoury. After this several enemies will arrive in a truck. Head on back outside and you’ll see around 5-6 enemies on the right side. Simply throw the Molotov at the enemies and the achievement will unlock.

    If you are still struggling, feel free to use this video as a reference.

    This can be obtained in Mission 4 Proxy War. Once you storm the airfield hang to the left and run to the helicopter landing. Toss a molotov at the base of the chopper so it kills 4 people. You dont want to throw it at the chopper because it can potentially not work.

    REALISM ACHIEVEMENT GUIDE:

    No video attached unfortunately, but work with me here.

    Mission 4: Proxy War
    Achievement: Ashes to Ashes

    Once you breach the outer wall of the base, move through the mission as normal. Around the halfway point through the base, you'll see an alley of storage crate buildings on the far right side of the base. Clear that side out, and use the RC plane to take out the snipers off in the distance. DO NOT MOVE PAST THE STORAGE CRATES UNTIL YOU ARE READY.

    Once you've prepared, step out past the storage crates towards the road paths that are leading out of the last section of the base. Once you do that, a troop carrier truck and an all-terrain truck will spawn. The all-terrain will ALWAYS have 4 soldiers spawn inside of it. Stay in cover and throw a molotov at it. They will all burn alive before they can exit the vehicle, unlocking the achievement.

    I find this method to be more useful than the "lucky chance" of throwing it at the soldiers the helicopter drops off, or the "berserker" method of jumping into a crowd in the second act of the mission.
