    During Mission 3: Embedded, at the start of the mission you will need to pick up a cinder block as part of a disguise to get past the guards. You must keep this same cinder block with you throughout your entire journey through this mission.

    During certain parts, you will need to leave it behind including when you are shooting any enemies, and running certain objectives like planting and detonating C4. Climb down the ladder at the end of the level holding the cinder block as you interact to unlock this.

    Possible on any difficulty, but recruit is probably recommended to make it as easy as possible.

    NOBLE RANDOMJust attempted this and didn't get it. Kept the same cinder block and everything. I will add though that I didn't hold x at the end like in the video (I tried before watching). I was afraid it wouldn't count so I just hopped in the hole and Alex grabbed the ladder anyway, dropping the brick down the hole. Guess I'll redo and see if you NEED to hold x on the ladder.

    In the 3rd mission of the campaign, "Embedded" you will have to pick up a cinder block to pretend you are a worker, you must simply bring the cinder block with you to the end of the mission, which isn't too hard of a task if you take your time.

    The achievement description is a bit misleading, "Only use one cinder block" does NOT mean you have to kill the enemies with only the block, you can drop the block to use your pistol or another weapon at any time or to complete other tasks in the mission such as setting explosives.

    Note that you can not bring the cinder block up or down ladders, right before Farah instructs you to set explosives onto two helicopters she will tell you to follow her up a ladder, don't follow her and just make your way to the helicopters. Once you reach the end of the mission you will have to descend down a ladder into the tunnel, keep the block in your hands until you press X to go down the ladder, the mission will end and the achievement will unlock during the cutscene.

    Good luck!

    Zaro KarosThanks for updating the guide, throwing the cinder block in was a no go.

    Moo Moo DairyI guess it's obvious but I'll confirm that it has to be the original block you pick up

    I dropped mine and got it confused with others in the middle of the mission and it didn't unlock for me because I had the wrong one thinking it could just be any block

    Agent ActiveI accidentally dropped it down the ladder at the end of the mission because I did not know that it was it

    ---Mission 3: Embedded---

    - Near the start of the mission you have to pick up a cinder block to blend in with the crowd. For this achievement you must NOT pick up any other cinder block throughout the entire level.

    - It's OK to drop the block to deal with guards, just be sure to pick it back up!

    - Now I brought the block through the whole level right to the end, but I believe once your done with the 2 helicopters you don't need the cinder block anymore! You should be good to just finish the level.

    + With every miscellaneous Achievement use "Reload Checkpoint" to your advantage, also difficulty won't void any of these so you can do them all on Recruit

    WifelikeDripYou must have the block in your hand when you press X to climb down that final ladder. Otherwise it won't unlock.

    TheDefiant89Didn't happen for me the first time. I did notice the second time round that the block fell down the hole, but it didn't the first time round. Maybe that was the reason?

    Edit: Oh, everyone has already said the same thing about the ladder. Haha!
