    You get this achievement on the 11th level WMD. You need to get to the Comms station without dying or having the squad die. Set the difficulty to recruit just to be safe.
    You start off piloting a Blackbird, once you take control of the co-pilot you direct the squad on the ground. It's pretty straightforward just follow the waypoints and listen to the games audio, the pilot will tell you exactly what to do. After your squad clears the safehouse you retake control of the co-pilot and you will need to direct your squad up north, there will be two hostiles. Select them with your target reticule or they will kill you.
    Next when the pilot tells you to send your squad to the barracks only direct them a few feet from where they are. Once you move them the pilot tells you a large patrol is heading their way. With your target over your squad press your melee button your squad will hide and the patrol will pass.
    After that clear out the barracks then direct the squad to the next two waypoints and the achievement is yours.

    Bendall 117Retry on recruit, it's possible one of your squad mates died during the shooting without you noticing. I don't know if that's possible but it's been awhile since I got my achievement.

    thunderkiss92Great solution! I suggest adding (what others have mentioned) that restarting from a checkpoint/dying voids the achievement, so you've really only got one shot at it. Either way, +1 from me!

    ZBrosSpecYa super easy to do. I wish they would give 50 gamerscore for hitting both the helicopters with one rocket.

    Guide the squad through the Soviet outpost without them getting killed:

    Another Video from Experienced-Gamers.

    **Possible Spoiler if you've not yet got this far in the game**

    On the 11th level WMD you alternate between playing as an SR71 Blackbird navigator and your normal role as part of the Black Ops team, On your way to the Comms station you need to guide the Black Ops team through various checkpoints without any of them dying (including the character you play as). An easy way to get this to unlock is to set the difficulty to recruit. Listen to what you are being told over the radio so that you don't move the squad on the ground into the path of the enemy.

    Tip 1: After you leave the safehouse via the rear entrance direct your squad at the 2 enemies nearby, simply place your marker over them, it will turn red, now press A and the squad will take them out,
    Tip 2: When you are told to dig in, do so quickly otherwise your squad will come under fire and you'll all be shot..

Just something to be aware of for the next people that use it. Cheers for the vid. Thumbs Up from me!
