EDIT: due recent comments, i'll edit the solution once again to try improve it.

I personally tried different methods and this is by far the easiest place and quickest way i found to get this because of this reasons:
1) you have infinite amount of enemies coming
2) the mount is stationary (unlike trolley combat which is moving) and the enemies keep coming from the same spots all the time, making the aiming much easier
3) if you fail and you have to reload checkpoint, you don't have to repeat half of a level, you can go straight away to try again.

so, this is what to do:
load up CURSED (on easy mode), go to Khan so he tells you to go for the explosives and blow up the tunnel.
But don't do that. Instead stick close to Khan and use the mounted machine gun.

Now the thing is: it has limited ammo. exactly 50 bullets (credit to MonkyCMonkeyDo for confirming this), however every enemy just needs 1-2 hits to die so you should be more than fine.

Don't try to aim around from left to right "chasing" the enemies. Just point your crosshair to one of the entrances from the left tunnel where the enemies are coming from (or the right tunnel if the AI is in middle of your sight) and wait for the enemies to come and shoot CAREFULLY when they are on the corner about to enter the main tunnel. 1-2 shots per enemy. Use LT to zoom in and don't move your aim too much.

Due recent comments i want to stress again to NOT aim around like crazy and focus your sight to one of the side tunnels and you'll see the enemies coming that way. Aim at the head or torso if possible and wait for enemies to come and just shoot them when they go around the corner before your AI partners kill them. AI is usually focused killing stuff in the main tunnel.

ANTI-EDIT:
following parragraph was here since i made the solution, but i can NOT encourage to do this, it seems to confuse people who is reading this solution, but it might be useful for some people so i leave it here:
Sometimes 2-3 will come from the front. If you get a quick clear shot on those when they are very close, by all means: do so. Chances are they are "softened up" by your allies already and will die with just one shot.

You'll get the chievo in no time. If you don't get it first try, just reload the last savepoint and try again.

EDIT: i'd appretiate feedback from everyone, specially negative voters to know what's wrong with the solution.
