I'm posting as a new solution because even with the other solutions it took me a while to find the right menus, etc. Maybe I'm slow but I figured others would have the same problems, so here's a very direct walkthrough with some clarification.

For 100 matches at an average of about 3.5 minutes per match (including load time), this takes about six hours total.

First of all I recommend installing the game to hard drive as this will reduce load times and also save your 360 the wear and tear of constantly reading the disk.

1. Sign in your profile (the one getting the achievement) on first controller.

2. Select "Multiplayer" (not Instant Action). Now hit the X button and sign in as Guest on the second controller. Once the Guest is signed in, select "Host Match".

3. Select mode "Vehicle CTF" and then map "Necropolis". For server, select "Player Match" and "Listen". Set max/min players and private slots all to 2.

4. On the Game Settings screen, select the following for each option:

Splitscreen: Yes
Bot Skill Level: Godlike
Bot Combatants: Players vs. Bots 1:2
Goal Score: 3
Time Limit: 10
Opposing Bot Faction: Random
Force Respawn: Yes

5. Now hit X for mutators. Add Speed Freak, Weapon Replacement and No Super Pickups (thanks to MasteroftheVG for pointing out that the godlike AI puts priority on picking them up) by hitting Y on each of them, then configure Weapon Replacement by hitting X on it and change every weapon to Impact Hammer. Be sure to hit A (not B) to return to the settings menu so that the mutators save.

6. Hit Start to start the game. On the loading screen disconnect both controllers if you wish.

SET IT and FORGET IT! (sorry Ronco)

Thanks to v CoMpLiCaTiOnZ for suggesting the Necropolis map which is really the key to doing this reasonably fast. I switched to 10 minutes instead of 5 because sometimes they won't cap within 5 minutes but they always do within 10 (each time they don't within 5 is 5 minutes wasted but having it at 10 it will still end as soon as they cap so no loss). The enemy bots usually cap twice within a minute and a third time at around 2-3 minutes, but it varies.

If you have any suggestions to make this better or have any problems, please post a comment and I'll try to address. If you're going to vote negative please post a reason so I can improve this solution, thanks!
