    Though the video above explains how to do the achievement, I always had problems waiting up to a minute just for a guy to jump over or trying to jump on a person's head and then they jump over the shield (Making it impossible to land on their head altogether).

    Using the video below, I was able to do the achievement in a fraction of the time it would have took me otherwise and without dealing with actions that make it impossible to do the head chomp (Such as the jump).

    Though the video explains how do to it perfectly, here is the Coles Notes:

    1. Select 2-1.

    2. Progress through the level normally until you reach the first sniper tower.

    3. Kill the enemies until prompted to go right and continue to do so until the sniper tower's left side is flush with the left side of the screen.

    4. When you jump on an enemies head, go to the far left and wait until the other person is half way up the hill before chomping and going to the next person.

    5. Rinse and Repeat.

    I hope this helps you get this annoying achivement (It took me about 30 minutes to get the flow going and then about 6 minutes to get the achievement).

    Zaro KarosReally not that bad once you get the hang of it. It isn't all random, there is a method to this madness. The best advice that I can give is there are only two times you want to head chomp and run towards the next guy and jump on him and these are A. if the soldier stops right in front of the pile of snow and shoots (this delays him a second or two giving you just enough time to jump on his head) or B. if the soldier runs up the snow incline that you are standing on. When the soldier runs up the incline it seems to be much easier to jump on their heads not quite sure why. In both scenarios you want to run towards the soldier and jump when you're right in his face scaring him giving you some extra time to land on his head. Press A once to jump, A again while in midair above the solider a second time to land on his head then finally press X to head chomp. I found mashing the A button worked better for me than holding it down like stated above.

    This seems like quite a daunting achievement, but don't be intimidated. Head Chomper can easily be done in level 2-1 [the first stage in Russia].

    You will start out on the ground being prodded by KGB agents, and then you will get up and can start the level. Go through the level until you reach the very first watch tower, then go further and you will see a sort of lump of snow that allows you to stand on one side of it without being shot at. Go to the NEXT lump of snow where you can stand without being shot from the other side of it.

    Now, there should be 4 agents ready for head chomping available to you!

    I recommend getting a piece of paper and a pencil so you can make tally marks. To help you get the pressure off of yourself try and take a break a small pause break after 10, 20, or even 25.

    What I did that helped me was after every single head chomp I paused the game, marked the tally down, and then un paused it by pressing START. DO NOT PRESS A TO UNPAUSE THE GAME!! Occasionally the game will register this as a jump, so you definitely don't want to press A since you could easily lose the agent you're on the head of ;]

    Use this YouTube video to help you find the place I'm talking about. Good luck!

    JuicyjamsGot it, thought once you chomped you had to hold down A, not the case just tap it as soon as your alien is lined up above the enemies head, he will automatically latch on. whew.

    SincereSeeker6Just got it using this strategy. Was a rough one though. Youve got to really focus, and if you play it for too long you will get fatigued and perform worse. Same with perfect fight achievement.

    fighterx93chippThis worked far better than any of the other guides... thank you!! Huge tip is to double tap the A button when biting the heads off and take your time. I also found it easier to have 2 guys spawned as compared to 4. Wasn’t as hectic

    I just got this achievement using FrozenImplosion's guide. A helpful tip: I found that if you stay at the left side of the screen and wait until the npc walks past you and turns back around facing right, that is exactly when you want to do a head bite because you will scare the npc and he will be stuck in the bottom left of the screen long enough so that you when you head bite the npc you are on, you only have to hold left to make sure you fall back on the next enemy's head. This eliminates having to worry about landing. You have to be very careful to make sure he walks completely past you so that when he turns around he isn't past you, otherwise you won't scare him and have to hit the jump to proceed. Once I figured this out, I got the achievement with relative ease. Hope this helps.

    XonatronTakes a long time to wait for this moment 50 times I've found. I was trying to do something similar to this. I wonder if I can speed it up.
