All credit for this solution goes to Pikey1969 for his Youtube video.

This is the best video I have found, and I used it to get the achievement. It tells you when and where to throw flashbangs and reload.
MAOraNzaFinally! Nice video! It took me abour 3 hours to memorize and to find all the right events. I closed with 5 seconds left while at the phone with my mother. :|
The difficulty in the difficulties :D

Don't see why so many people need help with this achievment. I did it in just 3 attempts when i finished the game on veteran. You don't even need to kill anyone on this level FFS. 18 seconds left to spare for me. TEE HEE HEE!

BsU Lordshipprobably one of the best guide videos i've ever used! do EXACTLY what he says/recommends! I struggled at first but you eventually get the hang of it! I recommend use of Optional Flashbang A!!!!!!!

RohypnoledPerfect tactic, still took me a lot of tries but I just got it!

Posted by Pa1ppi on 19 Apr 11 at 16:53
RabidDolphin87The only thing that worked better for me was going right at the beginning instead of left, I was able to get past the first area much quicker with more bullets left over by going right. Other than that the video is fantastic.

Muskrat MorrisDon't know if someo already, but to make it easier, you can move towards the hostage at the slow motion part to get a clearer shot.
Posted by Muskrat Morris on 08 Jun 11 at 14:08
reached the hostage with 1 second remaining.... such a difficult achievement, but relatively easy once you get the hang of the method. have to rush in for your team to really execute any kills...

Skanker irlI finally got this. This video was the most helpful out of all of them. Don't worry about gun switching and all that bs. Just do it how you feel comfortable. I even took a couple detours on my winning run. A lot of it is just playing it so many times that you finally get the AI to take out some guys.

JuicyjamsI had to use a combo of this method and the one from the video below, I wasnt going quick enough through the first part. There wasnt a need to try and fight as many people in that first seat area I blinded them then ran through saved enough time to complete. Thank you. Its been 2 years.

S ProtoTypefor anyone still struggling, i followed only the first floor of what he did in the video (which is fantastically done). For the second floor, i always found my self running out of time following his strategy. Instead, as soon as my clip was out on the mp5, i picked up an enemy p90 or mini uzi and used this "running and gunning" method all the way to the end and had 8 seconds to spare. still +1 for the great video.

Shadow XBLI love that as soon as you're shot, you kick back and flinch - so once shot you're screwed because you can no longer aim. This is complete BS. Also, the geometry in the level is atrocious - I get caught on the first left room's door almost every single time.
Posted by Shadow XBL on 31 Aug 14 at 14:45
EdweirddAfter many tries at this, I was able to get it. The video provided was helpful.
Posted by Edweirdd on 05 Sep 14 at 00:13
Shadow XBLI recommend searching youtube for the "flashbangs only" run. This is what got me the achieve. You don't have to shoot a single person, and really until the very last corner I didn't on my winning run. So much easier that way.
Posted by Shadow XBL on 05 Sep 14 at 01:04
lildrissy58150+ trys before watching this video......only took 5 or 6 tries after watching the video also good to mention I never got right to the end on any of those 150+ trys I got twice to the end in those 6 trys and the first time I shot the hostage......so this is by far the best video to use for this achievement

Shadow XBLmake sure you're waiting until the last tenth's of a second - time slows down and it's easier to spot the bad guy and not shoot the hostage.

jackam2008Thanks man great video! Took me about 4 hours over 2 days to finally do it. First time i got to the doors with the hostage i ran out of time, must have been about 0.01 second away lol. I tried different ways just to save me from going insane more than anything but after you get through that first bunch of dudes, reload, throw the flash and run to the wooden bench on the left. wait a couple of seconds and your team will catch up and kill nearly everyone in the room for you. Then when you get to the supply of flash bangs, throw one into the room and RUN RUN RUN! Saving your ammo until the guys come from behind the last corner. You will probably want to kill yourself whilst trying this mission, but if you keep at it you will get that little bit of luck you need!
Posted by jackam2008 on 28 Aug 16 at 11:40
Dr RoscotnikI'm sorry but I know this isn't your video but I've been trying to do this via this method for over a week now and I cannot for the life of me do this at all!angry I've finished the campaign on Veteran and this is the only achievement standing in my way of getting the 1000G so it's not a case of me just sucking at this. They are so many things that need to be addressed here when doing this:

1. Getting stuck immediately at the beginning on the right and having to nudge over to the left is always a pain in the ass as this costs precious seconds that you most likely won't have to spare and also getting stuck on the left going through the door into the room on the left is also a frequent problem.

2. Your teammates don't fully kill the first guy on the right at the beginning a good 7 or 8 times out of 10. By the time you throw your first flash bang, the guy on the right is usually either still standing and kills you or stunned and walking over to the left and getting in the way of your path from moving up forward and being forced to kill him yourself along with the other 4, 5 or 6 guys who enter the room and being forced to hold back and reload before continuing. Also when you throw your first flashbang past the seats, it seems completly random if you get caught out in the flash or not when you're looking out the door even when you're crouching or in the prone position.

3. When the hull breach happens, sometimes there's still a guy standing over on the right and the 3 guys that come down the stairs are already at the bottom by the time you get there.

4. After you throw the third flashbang after going up the stairs, there's usually 3 guys already in the room after going through the door on the left again having to take care of them yourself because your teammates haven't reached the top of the stairs yet.

5. Even after you've sprayed the wall just before where the resupply of flashbangs are, there's just about every time one guy there who's still standing ready to kill you.

6. Where you throw the flashbang beside the resupplies is really heavily based on luck. There are so many guys in that last part before the hostage that they always get in your way and are just about guaranteed to melee kill you when trying to get past them even after spraying in your line of fire and using the knife. You can just about guarantee you'll get killed when either reloading, getting one kill after a melee attack or when changing to your pistol.

Using the flashbangs anywhere in this level just seems totally random wither it has any effect on the enemies or not. Many times I've thrown flashbangs and there's one or two guys within a group that don't get affected or if they do get blinded and you start shooting them, they immediately start shooting back and often you get killed.

There's so many random things that have happened to me trying to do this but those ones that I've mentioned are the most common and I really don't know how to prevent them from happening. I've never even made it to the hostage. I'm giving this a negative vote. >:(

k0pp0Did it.. after about 2 weeks of trying (well years of trying). One thing no one mentions is that if you flashbang then wing a baddie, they come out their stun animation and shoot you.

B4RN4RD5K1Thank you so much, Wawa G Owns. Nearly 9 years I've been trying for this achievement and finally got it today. Excellent guide. For my advice to anyone reading this that still needs this pain in the ass achievement, keep at it! If I can do it, anyone can.

Posted by OspreyAttack on 25 Feb 19 at 05:23
Alpha SlaybotI'd also add: don't be put off by this comments section if they make it sound easier than you find it to be. After about 6 years of avoiding this achievement, watching this video and reading the comments I tried again with some optimism. All these people saying "got in in half an hour", "got it in 3 tries after watching this" can't be wrong.
It didn't go like that for me. Luck is involved in this, and practice. I came into this after a big absence and had to get used to it all over. It took 3 nights of trying and about 4 hours but I eventually lucked it using a combination of a few different solutions.
If this video doesn't seem to work spot on, try to do what feels better for you rather than sticking with trying to copy the video step by step. I ignored the first guy in the toilet, through the board room but then took the path to the right as going left I'd be often be blocked by someone. At the stairs to the 2nd floor my allies caught up and killed quite a few for me, anything after that was absolute luck.
I got there eventually, I'm sure you can too.
Posted by Alpha Slaybot on 03 Apr 19 at 11:15
GiantBRI remember this one, it's utterly difficult. A test of might of sorts, if you beat this level on veteran then the rest of the playthrough on the same difficult will be a breeze.
