    This achievement is best done on level 2 (The Island) on EASY. Just don't shoot, anytime you need to take someone out from long range, use your frag grenades. As mentioned in the comments do NOT use smoke grenades when going for this achievement.

    You can also get the other weapon achievements at the same time, as soon as you see the achievement unlocked, reload last checkpoint and fire the appropriate weapon and complete level again, repeat to get all.

    GAMERJET XBLI used melee only and didn't unlock the achievement. It's definitely buggy.

    SilentJay76Didn't unlock for me either. Tried two different missions without a shot. (Used ONLY frag grenades, nothing else.)

    I found the best level for this achievement was lv3.It's realitively easy to just melee and throw frags.Just remember to sprint alot.

    Though level 2 is better for the weapon achievements.
