This achievement isn't too difficult. I would imagine you'll want to pick the vehicle with the best power and grip because moving fast and good handling are going to be the most useful attributes here but it doesn't matter too much. Generally my go-to vehicle is Holdon because it's got great all-round stats, the only problem being that you might have to play a reasonable amount of the campaign mode to unlock it. I don't think the choice of map makes much difference for this achievement so pick whatever you feel most comfortable with.

I'll assume that anybody reading this has a good idea of how Bot Hunt works so I won't go into too much detail. In Arcade Challenge mode Bot Hunt finishes after a total of 150 robots have been destroyed by all players, this is counting the robot mercs and the repair bots. You win Bot Hunt by having the most points when the game finishes and points are predominantly awarded for destroying the robots.

The achievement requires you to win without any of the robots firing their weapons at you and there are a few strategies for doing this. If you want to risk it you can go after the robot mercs, they're generally pretty dumb and you will need to be quite close to them for a couple of seconds before they will fire at you. It shouldn't be too much trouble avoiding them if you keep moving and don't get too close. Be aware that they spawn into the map randomly so it's not unusual for one to suddenly appear right next to you, all the more reason to not stop or slow down too much. It's not hard to take them out from a distance if you choose to do so.
A less risky method is to completely avoid the robot mercs and only hunt down the repair bots as these guys don't shoot you at all. Or you can completely avoid all the robots and spend the entire match going after the AI players. You can easily earn enough points to win the match by finding and destroying the players with the most points. The downside to this is you're then relying on the AI players to destroy all 150 robots which can be a bit slow and obviously the longer the match lasts the more likely it is that a robot is going to get a shot off at you.

I would suggest keeping your distance from the robot mercs to be safe and mixing it up between destroying repair bots and AI players but really however you choose to go about this it shouldn't give you much trouble.

As with most of the mode-specific achievements there is a lot of luck involved as the AI are very unpredictable so if at first you don't succeed keep trying and you will have a good run sooner or later.
