    Take care of this one early on. I did it on Act 1 Chapter 3. The mission is to rescue 2 Gears and get to the extraction point. Make sure to set your weapons to snub pistols as your weapon at the beginning and each time you rescue a Gear. I did not use anything except the snub pistols, no executions or grenades. As soon as you get back to the extraction (where you started the level), the level ends so you do not have to clear out all of the locust.

    PostmortimusI got this only using snub pistols during the 3rd and final part of Act 1 Chapter 1 (when getting back to your vehicle and encountering your first emergence hole). Just kept selecting the snub whenever I attacked. I also executed 2 downed enemies by moving over to them. I even used a stim on myself. Unlocked on the results screen.

    I discovered (accidentally, when I started the game on Insane) that you can do this on the tutorial mission when you start a new game. In the very last checkpoint of the tutorial mission (when the E-hole is introduced), have both of your characters run as far head as possible. When the grubs emerge from the E-hole, have the character that's slightly behind shoot one grub with the pistol (and disable Overwatch for the character that's ahead if needed). Simply have the character that's ahead move toward the bottom of the ramp and the mission will complete and the Achievement will pop. No need to kill anyone. wink

    BryceSlayerDefinitely works. After coming out of bank vault just run for exit and use pistol. In my instance, I only hit one pistol shot and it was Gabe friendly firing on Sid(by accident). Achievement popped after mission end

    Russian EscortI can't get the only snub pistol, don't know what I'm doing wrong. Have done like 7 rounds now only snub pistols and no achievement.

    Easiest done in a later game scavenger run with a single scout unit which will also net you the achievement for completing a mission with a single soldier (if you are playing on insane difficulty) By Act 3 chapter 5 you will have access to level 6 scouts, which gives you 10 skill tree points. While running through collecting the minimum number of crates, shoot an enemy one time dealing damage with the snub pistol, and complete the mission.

    Spec out a level 6 scout's skill tree to the right side up and down the spine like so:

    Sprint lv1/2
    Free cloak
    Anticipation lv1/2
    Proximity mine lv1/2
    Extended cloak

    Use any weapon mods and armor that give cooldowns to skills, chances at extra AP, or increased movement range. If you have Gnasher attachments such as a grip with passive skill expertise, a short barrel with +1 movement range, armor with the passive skill blitz, and ranger treads which increase movement range, there will be very little to no RnG for this. The scavenger run in Act 3 chapter 5 can be completed in 3 turns while I still managed to miss a 90% change pistol shot from close range. Collect the first 3 cases ignoring the left side of the map. Grab the third case, shoot the pistol shot at a nearby enemy then use cloak. Y-ou will easily be able to make it to the extraction point from here in one or two turns.

    dingleingusDid exactly this tonight but achievement didn’t pop. Jacked mode so maybe that is why, dunno. Bummer.

    SmokeNashtyJacked mode works. That’s how I got it. Apparently you can only use cloak on jack no other abilities
