You must use the Y button to initiate a melee beat down, using the RT will not count towards the achievement, although it will in the grinds section.

Meleeing is done by pressing the Y button when close to an enemy. You will enter a mini cutscene where you grab the enemy, steal their weapon and shoot them in the face by clicking the Right Trigger

Best area to get melee kills

Make sure you are playing on easy

In Chapter 4 Checkpoint 5 run straight ahead and melee all of the enemies in this area and press start and reload checkpoint. Yes stats do count if you reload checkpoints. Hope this helped.

This can also be earned in Multiplayer


This achievement is apparently not unlocking for everyone directly at 100 kills, so keep getting kills and it will eventually unlock not too long after.
