You can also see CrOwned because it is possible to pop both achievements at once.
This is much easier to do than CrOwned. All you need do is kill the witch without anyone taking damage from her. She is most vulnerable at the moment of being startled - when she'll turn her head and eyes glow - just before she begins to rise.
Get as close as possible with your light off and use the auto shottie. But don't fire until she is aware of you. Turning your light on will startle her - then pump away and back pedal.
I got this (but failed the CrOwned) when she leaped up and I backed up and kept firing. Oddly, she did actually hit me and caused slight damage, yet the achievement still popped.
Recommend level 2 chapter 4 (the Town) - the safe house has an auto shottie. Climb down the tower and a witch is sometimes (random) behind the first building in an alley. If she's not there it's easy to reload and try again. (Also if you fail.)
There's another witch further ahead on that chapter in the office building - the one you have to leap up on a car to reach a ledge, then over a railing and into the window.
