I just got this achievement today thanks to the Insider Moves video that explains what to do and where. It is the perfect strategy to follow for this mission/achievement. Thanks to Denny Atkin (editer) and Ryan Treit (Treit and True)!


UPDATE: There was an Inside Xbox video of this on Xbox.com and on the Xbox 360 Dashboard, but is no longer available. I did find a video up on YouTube.

KungFooZombieThis is the one that really worked for me. I have been trying to get this one for a couple of years now (every time I borrowed the game from my friend) and was extremely annoyed and frustrated.
The things I did wrong, was using too many flashbang, trying to shoot too many bad guys, never let my team go in first and knifing the guy in the bathroom in the very beginning. I followed the movie above and finally got it. Thanx guys!

MarioFlaBRMan, this is the best solution. Following this guide, topo me a few tries To pop the achievement. Shinning solution.

t3chm4nI think this is the best solution. The video on solution with a gazillion thumbs up you need to be Rambo to take down almost every enemy on the plane. With this video the idea is to avoid enemies when possible, and, in my opinion, leaving the task easier.

Dumb M0nk3yzI don't know how Ryan didn't get shot up by the guy he ran past in the bathroom, because everytime I ran by him he shot me up and the guys down the hall finished me off

WRATH 0F PAINGreat video,I added some of my own skills but I GOT the overall video usage.Patience,skill and speed are needed.Thanks.

MAJ0R PR1VATESTrue that Dumb M0nk3yz. No 2 runs are the same and these videos usually show how things work when everything "goes right" (the good random rolls). Unfortunately there are a ton of everything "goes wrong" runs for every run that goes right. Hell, I usually get shot by the guy in the bathroom as he is spiraling down to his death with his finger on the trigger.

running past the bathroom guy is a BAD idea.... also there are like 4 extra flashbangs on the table right in front of this guy's face lol... no need to be so sparing of flashbangs

ElridotGreat link. This video is the by far the best I have seen. Mostly because it got me through it, and with 4 seconds remaining. So much rage when I thought I shot the VIP though.

Archer RivalI'm having the same luck as Dumb M0nk3yz and MAJOR PR1VATES. I'd estimate that 9 out of ten runs I've been killed by the guy in the bathroom. Also, the first group of enemies deploy as soon as I enter the room (before I can even shoot the first guy). I've also had a few of the enemies I've ran past come in behind me and blow me away.

You can't rely on everything in the video, but there is plenty of useful information. Also, saving up your flash grenades? I'm sure many people noticed the extra flash grenades on the table at 2:45 mark in the video.

NenjiI don't want to sound like a douche bag but this achievement is easy if you follow this guy.... i got it at my 4 attempt..... really easy if you follow the video to be honest, the above comment is right i had extra flash grenades that made it cake at the end.

ZebraArmada"Run past the guy in the bathroom" BULL CHIPS! I died 90% of the time from the guy shooting me in the back. The other 10% was getting shot by guys somehow immune to flash bangs. This is the best guide I've followed, but I swear updates are purposely screwing this up for me.

JOKERMAN50Just got this achievement after 5years on and off and it was all down to this video. The only thing is, I say knife the first guy in the toilet. Random elements (last stand, immunity to flashbangs, flashed enemies blocking walkways etc, you'll know) can screw you bad but perseverance will win in the end. Thank to all who contributed.

AradorStupid teammates wont do what theyre supposed to do arrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr

LetheliaGreat solution. I've been frustrated by this achievement for awhile, followed the video, and got it in less than 10 minutes. Definitely watch and follow the video if you're struggling with this.

NanmonJiei+1 for this solution! In my winning run, the only tweak I made was to go left at the top of the stairs like most of the other vids, as going right exposes you to more enemy lines of sight/fire and you have to get lucky to have the same run. One other tip: at the place where the video voice over says "fight like a madman until the end", if you are running short on time (say you have 12 seconds left), you can flashbang your way through the last room. I did and was able to do the bounce-bounce shoot maneuver shown in other videos to cap off the achievement. . . Good luck!

Dellfiswatched this solution and after an hour i finally did it :)

Martay28This solution is spot on... Ive been trying to get this for god knows how many years and following loads of videos and doing it in so many different ways... But after watching this video it popped after a few tries! I am so happy to have finally done it headspinclaptoast

spankyNspronkleThanks for this! It's definitely the best solution... I wasted so much time in the first room on my other attempts when the best thing to do is run past them all and save 6 seconds. Knocked this out in 5 tries after seeing the video.
