Syndicate Achievements

Hurt Locker

Breach 873 grenades  

"Breaching" a grenade disarms it, so naturally you will have to wait for an enemy to hurl a grenade to you. Just aim at it and hold . Disarming a grenade is extremely fast, and sometimes you can finish breaching before it even hits the ground. After a grenade is tossed, you have around 5 seconds to disarm it and subsequently loot it for your own use. There are two bosses you can grind this on: Kris, and the final boss. 

Kris (Ch. 15), when in the second stage, will begin to toss EMP grenades. If you take him to a sliver of health, he will throw three at a time. He will run and throw a set, and if you managed to not get EMP'd, he will walk a few feet and repeat. On easy mode, it's impossible to die, even if you mess up.

The final boss on Chapter 20 is the other boss you can grind this on. After you kill the twins, down final boss' health by a bar or two so he's dropped his minigun and just run around the area disarming the grenades he shoots out every so often. This is also recommended doing on easy mode.

873 is the number of bombs the guy in the film Hurt Locker defused as he keeps them with him.

He doesn't keep them with him, only the ones that became him nearly fatal. But he indeed defused 873 bombs, or at least he tells an officer that he defused 873 bombs.

Don't have the achievement yet, but I see it can be easiest done on chapter 20 in the 2nd stage of the boss fight. Make sure you pick at least the +25% longer overlay perk, you will need it!
Jus keep in cover and disarm the grenades as they get launched. It might take up to an hour to complete.
And btw I didn't die and played al the way to the credits until I quit.
From 15 minutes of gameplay I got from 17 grenades breached to 283 grenades breached!

Also easily done in 2nd part of the fight with Kris (chapter 15). I finished co-op with 200 and only took around 30mins to get the rest. Also he ONLY throws grenades so very easy.

On Chapter 8, after acquiring the mini-gun, you can sit in an area and the enemy soldiers will throw an unlimited number of grenades you can breach. After coming out of the elevator, go down the stairs. Directly across is an area that two guards will come out, one at a time. Kill them both and go sit in that little room. From there, guards will throw grenades continuously and if you spend enough time you can get the achievement just sitting there for a while.

best place i found to do this was the co-op level Scandinavia. where you encounter that armoured vehicle with the breachable turret, there is one guy in the bunch who is very grenade happy. kill all his friends and then just spend time time with him. he will almost constantly through grenades at you.

Good find #11. Didn't start out timing but I think it took me around half an hour to get 600.

On the train in chapter five.
When you go on the roof up the elevator just crouch. They throw one after the other in 4/5 second gaps.

The guy in no 11 method must have a bottom less pocket of grenades. :/

As 9 said. Camp out in the kitchen and he will stand near the broken windows. Run forward and then back to get him to throw more. Make sure you enable chips as they reset on chapter select. (can catch you out with missed grenades on standard health)
Originally had 234. Took 40 mins from there.
