    Very easy achievement to get and it was the first one I unlocked. I obtained it by going into Special Ops and completing the first mission "The Pit". All you have to do is get around the course in time and *pop* it will unlock. As you can see in the video I didn't even do the level that well and I still got the achievement.

    A run of "The Pit" - the very first Special Ops Mission in Call of Duty Modern Warfare 2 will net you this, and you can go for the 3 star as done in the video, easily !

    In case you can't see, I used the MP5K Holographic and the SCAR-H Foregrip - both medium fire rate but high accuracy guns for maximum aim. Note that this is the different from the pit in the S.S.D.D Mission. Here, you receive no accuracy bonuses and so you can afford a little extra spray - but it will waste time if you need to reload. Also, killing a civilian will not reduce your time but bump you down to a 2-star regardless of your time. Finally, you MUST hit every target - if you miss one, you are forced to go back.

    This is done on the Pit, the first mission in Special Ops. Complete the crash course in less than a minute by shooting and knifing cardboard enemies. This can usually be done in around 30 seconds
