Easiest and quickest way I found is this:
It is done In act 3-4 when you decide to take the monorail and Elena tells you to take a silenced sniper rifle to take out the search lights.
You will see 1 upgrade for your heavy machinegun and one for your assault rifle. Those are irrelevevant.
The real trick is that you get 4 upgrades for the sniper gun. If you play normally you need those for ammo refill. But that's not the case, right?

So, just pick up all sniper upgrades, shoot the search lights with the machine gun so you get detected and killed, reload checkpoint and rinse and repeat upgrading the sniper gun and killing yourself. You will get the chievo in no time.

The downside to this method is that you get negative score for dying so often, but hey! Who cares about score when you get chievos, right? :)

Oh and ofc: don't try this on your perfect run either, hehe.

If I find a better place, I'll update the solution.

please, if you have to negative vote, leave me a comment to know what I can improve/change.
