Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare Achievements

Escape Artist

Avoid 20 grenades by dodging with your Exo.   

Note: This has to be done with a grenade thrown by an enemy; you cannot dodge your own grenade. This can also be done with either Exo suit as they both have the dash ability.

At any point in the campaign when a grenade is thrown near you, there will be an indicator arrow for where the grenade landed. If you see the icon, you are in its blast radius and will take damage based on how close to the grenade you are. When you see this, click  down and in any direction (at the same time) to dodge away from the grenade. You must safely dodge out of the blast radius for it to count. Do this 20 times to unlock the achievement. If you are quick enough, you can do this multiple times with the same grenade.

If you’ve upgraded your ‘detection’ Exo ability, a circle will also appear around the grenade; green for outside the blast radius and red for inside. If it is green, walk towards the grenade until the circle turns red then dodge out of the way. Rinse and repeat.

If you haven’t gotten this by the time you’ve completed the campaign, load up Mission 4, ‘Fission,’ and after you are on the street, there will be a lot of enemies throwing grenades. Reload the checkpoint as necessary. Other missions to get this in are ‘Collapse’ and ‘Armada.’

I'm pretty sure it has to be in the campaign. I have completed survival and am quite certain I dodged 20 grenades and haven't unlocked it

Very easy achievement. Load up Armada and just after the night vision section you will head outside onto the deck of the ship. When the enemies throw the pulsating grenades just step into the circles and expo dodge (LS Away from Grenade & Click LS). Repeat 20 times to get the achievement. if you don't get it just reload checkpoint :)
