This achievement requires you to jump away from a scab when it is about to kill you.
This can be achieved in the levels"Stockyards", " Scabanian temple" or " Scrabanian nests".

Besides that the easiest location to get this achievement is the stockyard level. There you will be able to enter one of the secret areas. Do so and you will be standing on a platform with a scrab right underneath you. Wait till it has walked over to the right and let yourself fall down.
It will instantly attack you. All you have to do now is to jump up to the platform again right the second before the scab hits you. It might take some practice but you can just exploit the quicksave/quickload funtion to make this even easier.

If you missed this achievement use the chapter select function to jump back to the levels mentioned above.
