    This achievement is obtained by completing the "One Shot, One Kill" level, you can complete it on any difficulty to get the achievement so you don't have to pull your hair out over it on Veteran, however if you are playing on Vet chances are there's one particular part of the level you'll find more frustrating then the rest of the game combined, it's the last portion of the level where you have to wait out evac in a small abandoned playground, I'll link in the video guide to the level so that you can see how someone did complete it,

    Just keep at it, this game has a low TA ratio but at points can be incredibly frustrating, it's not impossible, so many people have managed to beat it and so can you!

    Note; I realise this achievement doesn't require a Veteran solution but I decided it best to cover the hardest approach!

    When sniping at the start, it is easier to wait until the wind dies down. MacMillian will say something about last chance and the flag will droop. This will make it a straight shot. When carrying him, make sure to drop him where he can support you, as all his shots will be headshots. At the end it may help to run around as opposed to finding a place to hold as it is harder to get cornered.

    The first part of the mission shouldn't be the hardest. The part where you drop MacMillian and start fighting near the Ferris Wheel is the hardest part, or at least was for me. One thing I did was went into the ticket booth that should be almost directly in front of where you drop MacMillian. Once there, go prone and wait for your heli. Try to get closer to the door side so enemies don't shoot you up. There will be an occasional grenade so be prepared to throw them back. Take note too that this probably will not work your first time because you probably will be killed when then heli comes. Don't wait forever or they will leave you. The nice part is the game checkpoints a little more than halfway through so if you do mess up, you don't have to wait for the whole thing. Don't worry if you die a couple times, just be patient and you will get it!!!

    In case I read over this in the other guides, carry him onto the rescue chopper. I am not sure if you get the achevement or not if you do not, or if leaving him is even an optin, but on my first try for the achievement I carried him on to the chopper and got the achievement.
