    During Mission 5: Clean House, you will need to kill all 11 enemies, using only 11 bullets, and without being hit. It is ok to use "Load Checkpoint" when you get hit in most cases as long as you don't get an unlucky checkpoint.

    This sounds a lot harder than it is. First off, use the assault rifle and not the pistol; it's a single fire gun so you shouldn't have a problem. Work your way through the house, learn the patterns, aim for the upper body, and prioritize armed enemies. A full run of this level only takes about 5 minutes.

    Ground floor - 3 enemies (all in main room)
    1st floor - 3 enemies (hostage taker, hostage, back room rusher)
    2nd floor - 3 enemies (hugging door, tucked in right corner, in left bedroom behind extra door)
    3rd floor - 1 enemy (after crying baby, they'll be in next room and get tucked under the bed before shooting)
    Top floor - 1 enemy (shoot on contact)

    IMPORTANT NOTE: Hostages can only be taken out after they reach for a gun and present a threat.

    NZT21Make sure you directly hit the enemy, not the hostage in front of him for example, as that could also damage the enemy. Also, make sure to not shoot through doors/walls and it should unlock for you.

    ec3734aa5da3I've tried like 20+ times doing everything correct and the achievement just wouldn't pop for me, until I got lucky one run and in the first room after I headshot the middle guy I hit a collateral on the women and other dude, thus ending the mission only using 10 bullets. Very frustrating, but very satisfying when I finally got it.

    ---Mission 5: Clean House---

    - Only use 1 bullet per threat (aim high), if they're laying on the ground bleeding out just leave them they will die on their own AND if you miss a shot Reload Checkpoint ASAP

    - You must wait for the "hostages" to p/u a weapon before the become a "treat" which you can then take out w/ 1 bullet

    Ground Floor: 3 Enemies

    1st Floor: 3 Enemies

    2nd Floor: 3 Enemies

    3rd Floor: 1 Enemy

    4th Floor: 1 Enemy


    - The achievement takes quite a while into the cut-scene to pop, so wait a little bit after before you restart the mission too early thinking you screwed up

    + 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

    BBALL UKI had a problem unlocking this one, you have to make sure to not use flash bangs and also only shoot the hostages like stated when they go for weapon. The first hostage reaches for AK-47 shoot her after picking it up. The second one is the one in the attic who reaches for detonator, wait until she turns to pick it up and shoot her, your teammates will also shoot at same time. I unlocked it without a problem following this guide and these extra steps.
