    You must do this in the Lone Wolves matchmaking playlist. Try and get matched in either High Ground or Isolation.

    Get a Mongoose and drive at full speed directly into an opponent. It may take a second attempt and a bit of luck since the Mongoose is only a lightweight vehicle.

    Another tip is to try and run down a person while their shields are low as this will heighten your chances of successfully mowing them down.

    AwakeDeadeyeThree things keep ruining this for me. 1- when I hit them I go right through them like they were made of light. 2- they can melee me off three feet away before I hit them. 3- when I do connect with them it doesn't do anything. I ran them over, landed on top of them, barrel rolled over them, slammed them into walls and pushed them all around the map to no avail... I think I'm done trying.

    BloodDusT92I managed to get this by accident on my other profile.
    Tip: (for anyone who doesn't know) try to hit them when they aren't looking at you, if they see you coming and shoot you, you instantly slow down to a fraction of what the mongoose's top speed is

    took a few tries but I did it on Snowbound during a BR slayer match. Basically I took the Mongoose and drove it around the outer edge of the map within the trenched areas as to avoid being too exposed and fortunately I was able to catch a guy running at the right time. And I believe he had full shields too as he appeared to not be in combat. Here's a clip you can download to Halo 3 to see how I did it.

    For this achievement you must go into a Ranked FFA (Free For All) lobby and look for people that are in combat and wait for they're shields to drop and hurry up and ram them as fast as you possibly can with the mongoose. If you see them near some kind of solid object ram them into that so that you can increase your chances of getting the achievement. For example on High Grounds there are tons of rocks out in the open for you to ram them into and there are 2 mongooses(mongeese). That doubles your chance of getting a mongoose to ram them with. Hope that this guide helped you and the others that read this. Happy Achievement Hunting!
