On Hunter mode in the 1st Zone of the San Francisco map there are several shipping containers with open doors. The object is to neutralize 12 enemies while they are inside the containers. Basically you have to take each enemy as a human shield and walk them in to the container and snap their necks or slam their heads against the wall of the containers.

[EDITED for Ninja Scroll: Or lure them in there to do it. The basic idea is that the guards are neutralized while inside the boxes which is what I said in my 2nd sentence above that has NOT been edited. I figured it was implied that regardless of how you get them in there the object is that they are neutralized while inside the containers not outside of them.]

Since there is danger of being exposed while walking a guard into a box it's best to shoot out nearby lights that can be shot out and obviously the cameras as well.

Climbing up on the containers and maneuvering around the guards to flank them is the best strategy I found.

Don't worry if you are detected and reinforcements are called in you can still get the achievement as long as you neutralize 12 guards in boxes and they don't have to be the first 12 either... I accidentally did a death from above on one of them outside the box before I got detected and then was detected. Prior to this attempt I was restarting after detections, but I thought I'd see if the achievement would still pop even if you're detected, and it did.
