    This achievement you can obtain on the mission Into the Furnace and it consist for you to reach the top of the mountain on Barkov's entrance/Warehouse. Very simple, just load up your game on Recruit and USE ONLY your Missile Strikes clicking on the cn_up I haven't test shooting with the guns you carry, just use the missile's strikes.

    Take your time, keep dodging the bullets and take cover behind concrete, tank, trees and so on. I also recommend taking couple of helicopters that drop enemies because it'll be much easier for you to progress. For the Littlebird Helicopter I managed to destroy it with the Missile Strikes as well.

    When you enter the Warehouse just go down the stairs a bit and the achievement should pop for you. Any suggestions you might have I'll be glad to add here.

    Happy Hunting!

    edit: People are reporting that even if you throw a nade and even if it doesn't kill anyone the achievement may not unlock. So make sure not to fire any weapon or throw a grenade, and try to focus only on the drone.

    edit2: Thanks to Maka91 for providing us a video showing how to do the achievement for those who are struggling or prefer a video perspective.

    hulksmash865Used the drone strikes up until the game forces your weapon to change before you enter the warehouse looking building and nothing. I played it on a higher difficulty, that's what I'd been playing the game through, and died once. Does that deactivate getting the achievement if you die in the mission? I made sure not to use any grenades and only stuck to the drone strikes.

    Dylan XBAWas wondering why it didn’t unlock. Cane here and read about “throwing back” grenades. Damn. I’ll just have to run through it quickly on recruit after I finish it on veteran.

    ---Mission 14: Into The Furnace---

    - Pretty straight forward, ONLY use the drone strike from the start of the mission all the way to the top of the mountain until all the outside enemies are "Clear"

    - You will have to wait periodically for the drone strike to reload...just sit back until it does

    + 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 can get this on Mission 14 Into The Furnace. Load the mission up on recruit and dont use any weapons only use the laser designator. Do not throw grenades back either because this will void the achievement. Make sure you stay behind the APC until it is disable and always take out choppers as quick as possible.

    so you get this on the mission called into the furnace and its right at the start

    you will get the ability to use a laser to call in missiles by pressing up on the d pad

    then from there its pretty simple as long as you load the mission on recruit

    ONLY USE THE MISSILES

    dont melee or use weapons or grenades or anything

    here is a video for anyone that wants one :)

    Mission 14: Into The Furnace

    At the start of the mission, you will have the laser pointer in your arsenal. Do not use anything (guns, grenades, melee) besides the laser pointer until you get inside the lab and this pops. Just before the lab there will be a helicopter that is strafing. Try to time your drone strike for when the helicopter gets to one end of its strafe as it tends to hover for a few moments. I highly recommend just doing this on Recruit difficulty.

    Here is a video guide with English commentary!

    During mission 14, in the first part, you must reach Barkov's lab entrance using only drone strikes. Achievement/trophy pops if successful when you reach Barkov's lab.
