    This can be done either Solo, Online Co-op or Splitscreen. There are 20 Waves for each map and the number of enemies increase after every 5th wave.

    This achievement will stack with:
    Tom Clancy's Splinter Cell ConvictionLast Stand CompletionistThe Last Stand Completionist achievement in Tom Clancy's Splinter Cell Conviction worth 82 pointsComplete all maps in "Last Stand" game mode on Rookie or Normal difficulty
    So you can just start straight on realistic difficulty if you want to.

    The maps you need to complete are:

    St.Petersburg 1
    St.Petersburg 2
    Russian Embassy 1
    Russian Embassy 2
    Yastreb Complex
    Mozook Grounds
    Lumber Mill 1
    Lumber Mill 2
    Lumber Mill 3
    Printing Press 1

    Here are a few pointers to keep in mind that will help:

    You can start from Wave 15 for each map and after beating Wave 20 your achieve' will still unlock.

    Find a good vantage point to take out enemies without attracting too much attention.

    Stick to a Silenced Pistol and try to pick the enemies off 1 by 1, keep a secondary weapon that you are good with incase all hell breaks out. Preferably a shotgun!

    Use the aim assist to your advantage. As you may have noticed, when pressing the right anolog stick to aim, sometimes the cursor will lock straight on to the enemy's head. If you are quick enough you can simply aim and instantly lock on to their head and quickly fire making for a quick 1 shot kill.

    Save your 'Y' Button execute for emergencys or for a quick takedown of 4 enemies, can be 8 enemies if your team mate marks 4 soldiers too. But keep in mind when going for an execution or hand to hand kill to gain the ability to execute, you can be annoyingly caught in a chokehold or exposed to 4 or 5 enemies at once. If playing Last Stand Solo, the enemy can't choke you but can still give you a push when you try to execute them. This can give them time to plug a few more bullets into you along with their team mates.

    Take your time and keep your aim steady! Its very easy to miss the first shot from a Pistol and then just start trying to spray with it! Leave short gaps between each shot so that the reticule goes back to a small more accurate size. If the reticule goes red it will be a headshot everytime, when enemies are too far away but you are aiming at their head. The pistol can still miss as the range isn't amazing on most of the pistols.

    Here are a few videos ive found that can give you a rough idea on how to set up for each map, in the videos he just shows you the first wave of each map on Realistic difficulty.

    This mode can be done online cooperative, split-screen, or by yourself. It's easier with a partner because you can revive eachother. The number of enemies increases by 5 if you do have a partner along with you. There are a total of 20 waves in this game mode, but you are able to start from wave 15 on all maps and still get the achievement, leaving only 6 waves per map. Some of them do get pretty hard, so I will explain how to make it go by a lot easier.

    On all of the maps there is usually a good vantage point where you can pick people off. Explore the maps to figure these out. Use silenced weapons and as many gadgets as you can. You can kill each wave, then die on purpose if you want to restock. Unlimited attemps! Should take you around 15 to 20 mins per level if you do it solo. Here is an example video explaining some things.

    The quickest strategy we found was to do it in COOP then use grenades simply equip all 3 extra gadget slot upgrades to your suit then with 8 frag grenades and 8 remote mines You blow the enemies away then die on the following wave to resupply your gadgets so for example you start at wave 15 throw explosive till everyone is dead then on wave 16 die restart wave now your on wave 16 with full gadgets repeat till 20 its key that you find strategic places to hide so you can protect emp but if you don't shoot and stay in shadows enemies will often ignore you
    credit also due to synAck for assisting with solution
