Kill 5 enemies with a single frag grenade in the campaign.
During the first mission "Operation 40", you will infiltrate Castro's room. Afterward, you will be put into a large hall and made to fight your way out. Once outside, you will see a large circular open area with a fountain in the middle and with Convo Trucks coming in from the far right side. You will hear Bowman say, "Take out that .50 cal!". Let the enemies cluster up in the middle of the area and then throw a grenade in the center of the fountain just over the first barrier. There should be plenty of enemies with explosive barrels all around them. Use these barrels to your advantage as it counts the explosion caused by the grenade. Throw the grenade with and watch the giant explosion. If it doesn't unlock, hold down to cook a grenade and kill yourself to put you at your last checkpoint.
Alternately, you can also try for the achievement during the mission, "The Defector". When you reach the objective to destroy the ZSU gun emplacement, you will head upstairs with Woods. After clearing out some enemies, you should see a few enemies crowded by a car. If you toss a frag grenade through the window of the car, the resulting blast will kill the enemies and the achievement will pop. If you mess up or you didn't kill 5, cook a grenade to kill yourself and retry the checkpoint.
Err... It's a bit harer than that. you need to kill five with one, not one with five.
theer is several locations you can do this at, but I completed this one on "Victor Charlie." Where you destroy the ZPU, on that same island/barge, to the right of it infront of the hut, I found a group of ~8 guys, cooked my grenade, and earned myself some easy GS
Another good location to get this is the very first mission, "Operation 40." Near the end of the level, after exiting Castro's home, before running through the sugar fields, a large group will attack you. Wait until all the trucks pull up and the guards are shooting at you in full force. Cook a grenade for two beats and throw it at the red barrels in front of the truck with the mounted turret. If done right it will cause a huge explosion which will kill 5 people. If not, just cook and hold onto a Grenade to kill yourself and try again.
on the hu city escape, just after bowmen smashes through the window. lots of enemies will come out. run upto them and cook a grenade. you will die but the granade is still there and the achievement will pop up
ok Maybe its just me... But I've tried this tip probably about 20 times now. No such luck. Same spot exact senario as the youtube video above but yet, no achievement. Anyone else having the same problem?
i got it in the mission the "The Defector". right after being blown through the door when the car explodes next to you. upstairs there is a balcony with a few enemies on it. kill them and proceed through the window onto the balcony. to your left across the street there will be a garage with a car inside it. five enemies were standing behind it.
Definitely Operation 40.. first mission. When you get outside in the courtyard, give it about a min or so and straight ahead of you, you'll see the barrels and about 5 or 6 guys. just toss a grenade over there by the barrels and bloop there you go! do it on recruit obviously. pretty easy achievement.
I managed to get this by watching the Achievement Hunter vid, but I noticed that unless I was watching the grenade explode then the cheevo didn't pop, hiding behind cover seemed to just waste the 'nade. Could've just been me I guess, but it might b a help if there's people still struggling with this
I got this playing at Veteran difficulty on "The Defector" during the final escape from Hue. Here is the setup: you will get a checkpoint just before the NVA overrun the plaza where the tank will eventually stop. For some reason the enemy AI will not immediately target you. There is a street from which the enemy will pour through and they will come in groups.
Lay prone on the street in a high traffic area. The NVA will literally step right over you as the enter the plaza. Wait until you think you have a large enough group gathered around and then "overcook" a grenade. It took me about half a dozen tries but the achievement did pop for me.
On Veteran difficulty I am used to the enemy shooting me on sight so it was pretty strange to have the AI just overlook me, but overlooked me
