Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare

Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare Achievements

Threat Detected

Paint 10 enemies with a single threat grenade.   

This can be done as early as Mission 1, ‘Induction.’

During the first mission, after you take care of the drone swarm (refer to “Not on my Watch”), you will enter a building and enemies will start ziplining in (a button tutorial on how to boost dodge will appear on your screen). Take out the first five or so enemies at the top of the stairs, then around the corner are 10+ enemies in cover shooting at you. Press  to throw your threat grenade towards them and you will easily unlock this achievement.

Note: Early on in the game, you only have the threat grenade. As you progress through the campaign, you will also obtain the flash and EMP grenades. If you are doing this in a later mission, while holding , press  to cycle through the available grenades. When you’ve selected the threat grenade, release  to throw it.

PowerPyx has provided a video showing this done during Mission 1, ‘Induction.’

I got this (it was my FIRST achievement, actually) accidentally. I meant to throw a "kill" grenade, not a threat (assessment) grenade. From what I just read above... it was probably my ONLY grenade at the time!

There's a point later on in the [first] mission, where you're told to use a threat grenade. I would assume one might get the achievement at that point... if there are enough enemies! I got it at the spot mentioned above.
