An easy way to get this achievement is to play a 1v1 match on a 3v3 map against a normal computer while playing as a covenant leader. Slowly capture as many bases as you can, and do not upgrade your population. As you do not need to build units, I would suggest upgrading all of your bases into Citadels, filling your bases with Blessed Warehouses, and only have one Summit on your main base (or whatever base if farthest from combat). As your units start to die, build Engineers to fill the spots in your population.

When your income is high enough (~4000 resources per reinforcement), and you have enough Engineers (~25), and when you have bought the 3rd tech level, you should then buy the Followers upgrade and send all of your Engineers into the enemy base. The enemy will kill all the Engineers and you will get the upgrade in one round, giving you about 35 open spots in your population. You will then get a Scarab in the next wave of reinforcements , unlocking both the Freak on a Streak achievement and the Living Loving Bug achievement.
