This achievement isn't hard or annoying but it's specific in what the requirements are so here's what I found by screwing up 2 runs before I got it.

Don't use flashbangs/melee/nades they do actually void the achievement, the game literally means only use your 1911, if someone gets too close remember Zombieland's Rule #2: THE DOUBLE TAP do NOT melee. Keep this in mind at all times, especially when climbing up the ladders near the end when everything is on fire, enemies spawn in randomly, so stay frosty. laugh

Don't pick up any other weapons either, disarming the tripwires is fine however. I'm actually not sure if this is a requirement but after screwing this achievement up twice I wasn't doing this mission for a 4th time, the 2nd run I picked up a FAL on accident and didn't get the achievement.

Take it slow, aim for the mid to upper chest and headshots, you will need the ammo even on recruit, if you happen to run down to about 7/21 (7 active, 21 reserve) and if you die/restart checkpoint you get an ammo refill (at least on Recruit difficulty).

When you get to the MG's nest, run then slide to the left (making sure to kill the guy there first) when it overheats and prone. then mantle over the wooden wall you've just taken cover behind, prone again then run on the 3rd overheat, that thing shreds even on recruit difficulty, be mindful the gunner has a friend sat beside him with a shotgun.

Maka has a video showing how to get this achievement:
Malicious FuryOn Regular difficulty you don't get an ammo refill, and I was just a couple bullets short, so Recruit is the way to go for this one

TheAaronLadYeah I ran down to 7/21 (I was contemplating a restart because that wasn't enough for the rest of the section) and died then spawned in with way more ammo than I needed to get the achievement about half way through the successful run. Not sure what the actual trigger is for that, it's most likely a recruit thing.

J2B9There is m1911 ammo somewhere in the fire section at the end but yeah you most likely don’t need it at that point. Yeah I wondered why I wasn’t getting it but realized I was using a flash at the MG section and didn’t think that affected it when you’re not killing anyone with the flash.

TheAaronLadYeah, it's just very specific which I found odd but also strangely like. The same thing that applies to this achievement applies to Warheads on Foreheads too, if you didn't know.

VestrideI did this on Veteran difficulty and didn't get more ammo when I died (I got down to 7/7). Like J2B9 said, there are a couple 1911 pistols in the fire section that gave me more ammo than I needed.
Posted by Vestride on 26 Oct 19 at 02:36
TheAaronLadYeah like I said, I'm thinking that re-supply on restart/death is on recruit only.

iLactateYouI just got this on realism difficulty, I ran out of ammo about three or four enemies away from the extra ammo and punched them with the 1911 out and still got the achievement.

green light opsCurrently running this right now, at the MG nest, and I can confirm I cannot replenish my ammo from restarting checkpoint or dying.

EDIT: I managed to earn the achievement just fine, I had enough ammo to reach the fire section, where I got more 1911 ammo. But the fact remains that restarting/dying must either be a glitch for some players or now since patched.

TheAaronLadIt seems to happen if you run low on ammo and after a certain amount of restarts. When doing the achievement for 11 bullets 11 kills and taking no damage (forget the name I think it was in mission 5) I would constantly get ammo back when restarting constantly.

green light opsAt the MG checkpoint, I emptied all but one final magazine and both restarted and died normally. Nothing changed.

DabbJust dropping by to say that a well placed forehead shot to the machine gunner while he's overheated will end him much faster than bobbing and weaving.

Also, meleeing does not invalidate this achievement.

ALSO, one of the two guys setting up a barrel trap just after the first railcar push will ALWAYS drop a grenade upon death to ignite it. Be wary of that if you're just planning on sprinting through.

GatorFistGot this first run on realism difficulty. It really isn't that bad. Might be worth mentioning you can pick up the enemy 1911s and it doesn't void the achievment. I swapped the shotgun with one to get more ammo.

TetraHydro C420Just adding some confirmations on Recruit difficulty. With the first ambush you encounter while crawling under the booby trap, first guy on the left has a shotgun. Multiple reloads of checkpoints showed if you snuck up and disarmed the 3rd trip mine before they come walking out, he immediately swaps to a 1911 after his first shot. Or if you allow him to empty his clip he will swap to his 1911. Note: He must swap to his pistol to pick it up. This will NOT cancel the achievement.
The attachments varied but almost always included some sort of upgrade from the standard model. Most notably a red dot with extended magazine. Helped out way more conserving ammo with the red dot. With that said there is always a full magazine waiting for you by the second minecart. While standing behind it, facing the direction your about to push. It's between the front right wheel and the wall, laying on the ground.. full mag for your ascent.

Arkinvader99*Repost of original comment for historical sake*
This isn't a full solution but after my first run through playing on Regular I only used the 1911 but I also used Flash Grenades on the MG section. I didn't get the achievement so waiting for the MG to overheat and cool down to move to flank him without Flash Grenades would probably net the achievement

prokopYou can pick up an enemy's 1911. I did multiple times and at one point had over 100 rounds. Easiest achievement yet. I also shot the dude at the very end and it popped right after I cut the red wire.

xMorettiI picked up an AK 47 from an enemy in the ground and still got the achievement.

br34thedyn4m1teI just did this and hit 4 or 5 enemies with the pistol, shot the rest and achievement popped as soon as level finished

AgentOfAbyssThis was super easy. There are a few places to pick up ammo along the way. I also want to point out that shooting explosive barrels (with the 1911) does not void the achievement. I shot the explosive barrel to take out the MG nest and got the achievement still which makes that part simple.

STAF DKThis is bugged. Just did it two times, all kills with the1911, no melees, didn't throw nades, nothing!
Posted by STAF DK on 17 Mar at 15:34
Kush An PlayConfirmed. Using 1911 to shoot (small one next to blue barrel) propane tank to kill MG works. 2 tap everyone and you won't run out of ammo. Score some headshots early to gain some leeway.

FATAL EMBRACE69I am starting with the X16.... is this the same as the 1911??

BO55 Saint@FATAL EMBRACE69 this achievement is just for the tunnel section of the mission

cjj159Big f. I came down to 2 bullets in a mag and no reserve when I fell down the drop and seperated from Farah. I used a moly to kill the guys by the barrel. Press f my man

v XmazYou can use melee. I still got the cheevo ;)
Posted by v Xmaz on 03 May at 13:29
SkridgerI can also confirm melee is ok. I ran out of bullets and meleed my way up the ladders near the end. Got it no problem.

ShadowfoureightCan't throw grenades back at enemies

xCRiMZoNx*For those feeling adventurous like I was and want to do this achievement on a veteran/realistic run.* When you get to the part where the tunnel is on fire (right after you push the cart to go up.) Go straight back just before going up the first ladder and you will find fresh 1911 ammo. This will aide you in getting the achievement. P.S. I also used melee on a couple of soldiers and still got the achievement. Happy hunting!
