    This achievement is done in the last area of Salt Lake City, the 4th area - the one after the area where you climb up loads of pipes to get to the exit. Equip remote mines and proximity mines. I put all my clothing upgrades into gadgets as well.

    From the weapon stashes turn left and go back as far as possible. Press up on the d-pad to spot a fire extinguisher. That will alert the guards (you'll need to kill 24 of them).

    Go up the stairs and towards the standing spotlights (there are four lights on the one unit). Go around the corner and take out the extinguisher.

    This will cause most of the baddies to come towards you. Tag them as and when you can so that you know where they are. When they get near throw a proximity or remote mine. They will take out plenty of enemies.

    If you get spotted run back around the corner and look for a small doorway on the left. Hide in there and pick off more enemies. Only go hunting if necessary. The wall to your left is climbable and allows you to kill more enemies and hide.

    When you get down to 1 enemy keep him tagged and take out anything you can shoot (extinguishers and fuel tanks). There are three heights to this level. The hard to spot ones tend to be at ground level.

    Take out everything until you are sure (run around everywhere with your sonar on, keeping away from the guard).


    The achv only popped for me when I killed the last guard.

    I had three runs before where I was sure I nailed it but no achv popped. I cleared my hdd cache and it worked.

    Every achv in the DLC is doable solo. I know this because that's how I did them.

    To get this achievement, you must play on realistic difficulty in the 4th zone of the level "Under Construction". While it says you must play it on co-op, that is not the case, you can achieve this on solo. The strategy I used when playing was to eliminate all but one guard, then use my sonar goggles to find all of the canisters and fire extinguishers. Just make sure to put a mark on the guard, so you know where he is at all times. There are a total of 10 explosive canisters and 8 fire extinguishers.

    On the 1st floor, there are 4 explosive canisters and 5 fire extinguishers.

    On the 2nd floor, there are 4 explosive canisters and 2 fire extinguishers.

    On the 3rd floor there are 2 explosive canisters.

    Behind the weapons crate at the beginning of the level, there is 1 fire extinguisher.

    The only one that is really easy to miss is the one at the beginning of the area, in the room that you just came from. If you watch the video provided, it is at the 7:38 mark. Also, it is in debate amongst some gamers whether or not you have to get detected with reinforcements being called or not. When I did my run, I had back up called just to be safe. The achievement will unlock once you kill the last guard, so if you are worried about the achievement not popping due to missing one, try completing the level.

    wosmackWhen I started this section of Salt Lake City, the first thing I did was blow up the Fire extinguisher before the weapons chests. Then I killed 23 of the 24 guards and took out most of the lights in the process. Once that was done and I had a marker on the final guard, I went through the locations as described in this solution and the count checked. I even triple checked and couldn't find any additional explosives. I blew up all canisters with the pistol. One thing I was worried about was in the back corner of the first level, when I blew up a canister, it was close to the fire extinguisher on the trailer home, and they both blew up at the same time. I wasn't sure it would pop the achievement because of this, but as soon as I killed the last guard, got the achievement. Thank you ABouncingSoul. (I haven't played this in a year and I just came back to it. Last year I attempted this achievement several times and had no success. Worked this time! )

    You can get this achievement in Solo despite the description saying Co-Op but make sure you're on Realistic difficulty. You only need to destroy the explosives on the final area of the level. There is 1 fire extinguisher that is easy to miss because you have to look back at the pipe room to see it.

    First you're going to want to kill everyone accept for 1 or 2 guys including the backup because as soon as you destroy an explosive, backup will come. Once those 1 or 2 guys are left go around destroying all of the explosives. There are a total of 18 explosives: 10 canisters and 8 fire extinguishers.

    I suggest making a checklist and every time you destroy one, check it off. Once you think you've destroyed all of them, go around double checking for any missed ones using your sonar goggles. The explosives will glow white while using your goggles.

    Here is a video walkthrough I made to help you locate all of the explosives. The easy-to-miss explosive is near the end of the video.
