Spec Ops: The Line

Spec Ops: The Line Achievements

Adapt and Overcome

Blow up 10 explosive objects, killing at least one enemy each time. (campaign only)  

You will find many explosive objects scattered around the game. They are dark red and have a fire hazard symbol on them. They are scattered all over starting as early as the first chapter. Simply shoot ten of them and make sure that each time the explosion kills at least one person. If you kill more than one person with a single explosion, it still only count as 1 on the counter.

If you find a spot where there are enemies near explosives close to a checkpoint, you can just keep reloading the checkpoint until you unlock the achievement. I good spot to get this achievement is during Chapter 10, Part 2, where you use the grenade launcher from the side of the truck.

I've tried on Chapter 11 killing like 20 guys each time and appears that that place don't count. Few chapters later I've killed a guy using and explosive object and the achievement tracker was on les that 50% filled. So yeah, I still miss this achievement and looking for a place to boost it out.

I found the same as everyone else, Chapter 11 doesn't work for this achievement, and I was using my own weapons rather than the mounted MG and it still wouldn't pop.

#5 has got this one, shoot the tank near the grill. There our a few guys there just reload as many as you need. There is a sniper rifle there and plenty of ammo.

Got this on chapter 14. In the area when you have to stop the mortar attack. After you stop the attack and start to advance you will see two explosive canisters. One on the left next to a concrete barrier and another farther up in the center to the left of sandbags near the mounted machine gun. You should be able to get a couple at a time. After shooting the two
canisters reload the checkpoint and you should get this in no time at all.
