This can be done in versus with two controllers.

Start up a level on the sacrifice (start of chapter 1 is just fine).

Once you find a white barrel with a flaming symbol on it, spawn your 2nd controller (the special infected) next to it while you're out of sight (so the AI won't shoot the infected).

Walk back, shoot the barrel and let the special infected die by the flames.

It's possible in single player aswell, but then you have to kill the AI (by switching difficulty on expert) and lure a special infected to a barrel, but might aswell ask a friend to do a versus match if you don't have 2 controllers.
