    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.

    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!

    ---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

    You dont have to carry the block the entire time, you can drop it to shoot, however you cant pick up a different block at any point and you must carry it to the end until you are asked to jump down the ladder hole.

    For this you will need to play on the mission Embedded. Best to pick Recruit Difficulty.

    heya guys you can do play dead & companion block at the same time so i made a video guide on how to do this



    just play through the mission called embedded picking up the cinder block , you will need to drop this when you have to place c4 and shoot but you can pick it up after doing said things

    for play dead it happens later in the mission when you approach a field of dead bodies just spray and pray until all enemies are dead
