Mission 8: Achilles' Veil
Soon after the 8th Mission "Achilles' Veil" starts, you will come to an interactive cutscene with Menendez and Harper. You will then have to decide which one to kill. Press A to choose Menendez or wait for a few seconds and don't press any buttons. Either way, Menendez will shoot you in the head and the achievement will pop shortly after the cutscene is over.

Yes #1. To elaborate on what they said, it is the mission Achilles veil and this is doable right after Menendez takes down the plane with Harper. He will ask you to prove you loyalty and give the option to shoot Menendez or Harper. Selecting Menendez will make him counter your attack and shoot you, unlocking the achievement.

You can get this achievement on the mission Achilles' Veil.
Towards the end of the mission you have to decide whether to shoot Menendez or Harper.

If you shoot Menendez you gain this achievement but can't gain other achievements later in the campaign and Farid dies.

If you shoot harper you can then get two other achievement later on which are:

1. If chloe is captured and you don't rescue her in the second chance mission you can get the Showdown achievement.

2. If chloe is rescued you can get the Good Karma achievement as long as the Ship Shape achievement is earned( complete all strike force missions so China is an ally and wound Admiral briggs)

You can get this achievement while doing your Good Karma playthrough, considering you don't want to do it on Showdown because of playing on veteran, but you can choose to shoot Menendez then just restart mission. Not essential but saves a possible rewind.

There is a simple way to get this while going for Good Karma. Save and quit when you get to Menendez. Resume and attempt to shoot Menendez. As soon as you see the achievement pop, sign out. When you resume, it will be the checkpoint right before Menendez and you can proceed as planned.

You have to be quick on the trigger or the game will decide for you and then no achievement :(

Shoot Menendez than redo the mission the other way. It works out in the end. Trust me.
