EDIT: Some reported that you do not need to do this on 3 officers in a row, so it could be glitchy for some while not for others. Doing the following will surely help you get it if other methods do not work for you.

Original Post:
The description for this achievement is clearly a bit off as the description in Chinese clearly states 'in a row' (translated of course).

In order to get the achievement, you need to defeat 3 enemy officers IN A ROW with a Switch Counter in a single battle.

To do this, you need to:
1) Prepare two weapons each with a different element (Heaven/Tian, Earth/Di or Man/Ren) (Thanks to Steadholder for pointing out the correct translation as I was playing the Chinese Version and kudos to Minkopig for suggesting adding the Chinese spelling of the elements). Now you have two elements ready.
2) Change the difficulty to easiest or easy (the first two difficulties from the top). Now the enemies are easy to deal with.
3) Go into any battle you like, preferably the first several stages of each of the campaign due to their low difficulty.
4) Run up to enemy officers, cycle through your weapons to see if there's an exclamation mark above their head. If you see it, attack the enemy officer to whittle down his/her health to roughly 1/3 or 1/4, then wait for him/her to do the Storm Rush. As soon as you see his/her weapon glows green, do a Switch Counter by pressing RB and the game will show you a close-up. If you kill him/her in this way, congrats and move on to find another enemy officer which has the same exclamation mark. Repeat twice more and you are done. The achievement unlocks right away.

1) IN A ROW means no killing any officer in any other way in between.
2) To better understand how to do this Switch Counter, go to the tutorial levels. The game explains it quite well.
3) If your officer is too over-powered (one-hit kills the enemies), just forget about the whittle down part and directly wait for them to do the Storm Rush.
4) If the enemy officer is still alive after a Switch Counter, switch back to your weapon which is weak against his/hers (to make the exclamation mark shown again) and try again.
5) Enemy officers in lower difficulties do not attack often, let alone do a Storm Rush. Just keep circling them around and eventually they will do it.
