This achievement you can obtain on the mission Into the Furnace and it consist for you to reach the top of the mountain on Barkov's entrance/Warehouse. Very simple, just load up your game on Recruit and USE ONLY your Missile Strikes clicking on the cn_up I haven't test shooting with the guns you carry, just use the missile's strikes.

Take your time, keep dodging the bullets and take cover behind concrete, tank, trees and so on. I also recommend taking couple of helicopters that drop enemies because it'll be much easier for you to progress. For the Littlebird Helicopter I managed to destroy it with the Missile Strikes as well.

When you enter the Warehouse just go down the stairs a bit and the achievement should pop for you. Any suggestions you might have I'll be glad to add here.

Happy Hunting!

edit: People are reporting that even if you throw a nade and even if it doesn't kill anyone the achievement may not unlock. So make sure not to fire any weapon or throw a grenade, and try to focus only on the drone.

edit2: Thanks to Maka91 for providing us a video showing how to do the achievement for those who are struggling or prefer a video perspective.
CLOUDxBLACKi can confirm from playing on vetern that melee attacks do work just as long as you dont kill enemies with your guns or throw back grenades

Dave Ginge 95I’ve tried multiple times only using the drone strike and it doesn’t pop, it’s the only achievement I need

GatorFistThey are very grenade happy. You should definitely add that throwing one back, even if it doesn't kill an enemy, voids the achievement. This happened to me after I did it on my Realism play through.

Time Paradox 5Like some others here, I played the level multiple times without the achievement unlocking. I only used drone strikes up until the laser pointer automatically switched to the sniper rifle. I was finally able to get it to unlock by hitting the guide button, going to achievements, going to the warheads on foreheads achievement then selecting "Go to official club." I had just completed the mission again only using drone strikes and had waited a few minutes without the achievement popping. As soon as the official club loaded the achievement popped. Hope this helps anyone with the same issue!

Doc ChopperPlaying it on PS4, the Achievement / Trophy was not unlocked for me, as I only threw back an enemy grenade.

Victor I3Doc Chopper try not to throw anything and focus using only your strike drones

hulksmash865Used the drone strikes up until the game forces your weapon to change before you enter the warehouse looking building and nothing. I played it on a higher difficulty, that's what I'd been playing the game through, and died once. Does that deactivate getting the achievement if you die in the mission? I made sure not to use any grenades and only stuck to the drone strikes.

vG x MadnessAccidently threw a grenade back, on my 1st runthrough on veteran and it was either throw back granade or keep constantly dying so guess this is another mission i will have to reply but on easy haha

Dylan XBAWas wondering why it didn’t unlock. Cane here and read about “throwing back” grenades. Damn. I’ll just have to run through it quickly on recruit after I finish it on veteran.
