Simple achievement which is made easiest to unlock when boosting with a partner.

I have to admit that when i first went for this achievement, i spent a minute or two trying to figure out which button was the melee button! facepalm

Basically unlike in the campaign, you character won't melee an enemy at close range. In order to melee your opponent, you will need to use all of your ammo up on your pistols first, and then when you are weapon-less, you can bring out the fist!

The melee attack is actually quiet powerful, a single strike will do more damage then a single pistol bullet. But trying to land a punch on a (non-boosting) player would be near to impossible. So set up a boosting session or just borrow someone for a couple of minutes to set up a multiplayer match and then knock each other out. As soon as your opponent's lights are knocked out: Achievement unlocked.
