Self-Explainatory - whenever you see war machine use it and shoot all the enemy waves there are. You find several war machines in the first chapter of the game, but you will get a few chances later to kill enemies with the war machine.

If you play coop then player 1 uses the war machine, player 2 keeps enemies away from player 1.

To me it seems that this does not have to be done in one playthrough - I got the achievement somewhere in chapter 1 in playthrough 2 on Heroic difficulty level - the difficulty level you unlock after playing through the game once. I am not sure if the kills from playthrough 1 stack - the achievement description says "no". But it may be that the kills you do stack when you die in battle (like in the "living shield" achievement).

One funny thing - war machines seem to be deactivated in Legendary difficulty level (the difficulty you unlock after your playthrough on Heroic). I could press A at a war machine but I could not use it so far - RT does not work at all (playing the scout).

Edit: This seems to be a bug - I played through Heroic yesterday again with a friend and she can use war machines in Legendary (playing the mage).
