    The easiest place I found to get this was on "Underworld: City of the Dead".

    When you first enter this location down in the bottom right of the map you will encounter a couple of flowers then after jumping up a small ledge a spider will appear. Jump over the spider and you will find some spikes that can be raised and lowered depending on your spirit form. The first spikes are red so make sure you are also red so that they are below the floor. Wait for the spider to walk over them then switch to blue to kill it.

    Alternatively, you can also get it a little earlier in the game as the first part of this video shows:

    RapidColt713492I am so screwed. I did this when I was in the eternity world and all of the freaking doors I previously went through are locked! So now I'm stuck! I have no way to get to a teleport between the two maps. Can anybody help me? I'll delete this freaking game and do it way down the line if I have to restart the g**d** campaign again.

    Mr FiddlerYou're not screwed, there's nothing missable in this AFAIK. There will be a warp back a little later on (half way through "Trail of Tears" IIRC).

    RapidColt713492The thing is, I went to the underworld to do this achievement and I can't get back because doors are locked. The one way I can get back through requires a lift to be activated (from the top, I'm at the bottom.)
    I'm as far as trail of tears, but I teleported to get this chiev real quick mot realizing doors would lock after completing the world.

    Level: "Origin: Rites Of Passage" (The second level of the game)

    Soon after the level starts, you'll find yourself dropping to the bottom level. There will be a few spiders, as well as some sets of spikes which shoot out from the ground when you walk over them or get near them. Kill every spider but one, and then get that spider to follow you all the way to the left. (There are spikes to the right, also, but there's a roof over them so it's a little harder to time it and avoid them properly.)

    All you have to do is get the spider to walk over the spikes behind you. If you time it right, the spikes will shoot out of the ground onto the spider, and voila!

    If you don't time it right the first time, just keep making passes left and right until the spider is positioned correctly. It shouldn't be too difficult though.

    FaSCoRPtried this method for a hangman event and I've found the easiest way. Also creating a new game and progressing to the second level does not take too much (10 minutes)

    As a matter of fact this can be your first achievement in the game!

    Right at the begining, when you first get your sword, you'll have to break a wall to get back to an area where there is a little pit with spikes in it. There's also two spiders near it, one close by each edge of the hole. Chose one of them and kill the other. Now get close to the remaining spider and make it follow you to the pit. Jump over it and be ready to be quick. The arachnid will stop in the edge of the hole with the spikes. Jump over it, a little bit further and run back to the spider as fast as possible. Use an upercut (Up + X) when you get close to the big insect and you'll make it fly up and further, then landing in the spikes. The achievement will pop as soons as the spider hits the thorns...
