    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.

    ---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

    Once you climb the ladder and get into the kitchen let the woman who walks in be apprehended, dont shoot her. To get this achievement you will need to kill 11 people with 11 bullets. No need to aim for head shots body shots work just fine. You also cannot be shot or take any damage. The first room to the left has 3 targets shoot the 2 guys first then as the woman grabs the gun drop her. Your achievement is voided if you kill someone before they reach for a weapon. Move up to the 1st floor. Your teammate will take out 1 enemy to the left. Once that is over choose the door closer to the stairs face on. Roll the corner slow and as you see the hostage get ready to shoot the bad guy behind her. Once he is down wait for her to grab the gun then drop her. The last enemy on the floor is hiding in the corner closet open the door and hold an angle then drop him when he rushes you. Once you get to the second floor smash the door open on the left side of the door peak right and shoot the 1st guy. The second guy can be in 2 places so you have to be careful. He will either be holding an angle to the right when you enter the door or in the corner at your 1 oclock when entering the room. The last guy on this floor will bust open the door to the left. When you get to the next floor do not shoot the lady with a baby. Once you enter the next room quickly shoot the guy as he crawls under the bed. On the final floor wait till price tells you to shoot but dont wait too long because if price kills her it will not unlock.

    The Golden Path achievement can be quite troublesome, an enemy threat is someone who is aiming at you regardless if they are a hostage or not. On the ground floor in the living room there will be three enemy threats, take care of them with one bullet each.

    Then on the first floor you will encounter an enemy holding a hostage captive. You will need to shoot the hostages taker in the left shoulder, the hostage will then be freed but will try to grab a gun. You will want to let her grab the weapon before you shoot as she is not an enemy threat before she does this. The last enemy is in the small room on the right side, simply open the door, let him shoot the door a few times then take him down.

    On the second floor you will want to let Alpha 3-2 get downed. After he’s down throw a flashbang through the door to stun the enemies. Then look through the holes in the door and shoot the enemy that’s in front of you. The next enemy will either be behind the settee or on the right corner of the room. Take care of him, enter the room a turn immediately left as another enemy will come charging through the door, take him down and it’s 2 enemies left.

    On the third floor, you will open a door to a woman and her child. Ignore those two and proceed through the next door. After you open the door immediately go prone and wait the head of the enemy threat to appear from under the table on the right side, take him down and there’s only 1 enemy left.

    The last enemy threat is encountered after Captain Price open’s the last door. You will need to wait until Captain Price says “Drop her”. As soon as he says that take her down, if you fail you can always revert to last checkpoint.

    I had a bit of trouble with this achievement, I hope this helped you out.

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

    so during the mission called clean house you need to take out 11 enemies with 11 bullets
    when you breach into the house dont shoot the first woman because your team mate will tie her up
    you then have 3 enemies in the first room which is probably the hardest part
    only kill the lady once she has picked up her gun but the other 2 you can kill straight away
    theres another 3 enemies on the 1st floor
    3 more enemies on the 2nd floor
    3rd floor has 1 enemy
    4th floor has 1 enemy

    its probably much easier to watch a video guide so here it is :)

    Also note: I executed this three times perfectly before it popped and it seems you can't use flash grenades to help disorient enemies before you clear the floors. So if you're using this tactic be aware that it might not work.
