This was a very challenging game to get the achievements on the hardest mode. My advice to anyone trying to get them is make sure you are always advancing or planning a way to advance in the level. Never stay in one spot for too long or you will get a grenade in your lap. Its tempting to stay in one spot and pick guys off but on the hardest mode they will just keep coming. Always advance, find cover, kill whoever is blocking you from advancing more and then find cover further up. Be ready at all times to throw back grenades or run from them. Most importantly don't give up, the challenge is what makes it worth doing. Good luck!
