Start up beast with the following settings:
Difficulty: Casual
Map: Checkout (you want a small one)

You can get this while going for:
Gears of War 3Welcome to Beast ModeThe Welcome to Beast Mode achievement in Gears of War 3 worth 13 pointsSurvive all 12 waves of Beast mode (any difficulty, any map).

Wild Ticker: This will be your hardest kill to get, and so it's best done on wave 1. I started off as the Savage Drone and killed everyone except the last guy. I proceed to let this guy take my health down almost to the end and then downed him (don't fully kill him) then go kill yourself on a turret or a spike fence. respawn as a Wild Ticker and just walk up to the guy and kill him. It'll take some practice but this is the easiest way to do this alone.

*Also if you down a guy and die, then respawn as a wild ticker and then the guy dies (without you atacking it) it still counts for the wild tickers kill.* - Found by quinnpm

Ticker. Just keep at it. The ticker is easy to go around a corner and kill a guy. Make sure you use your run (hold A) feature. If your having trouble use the same strategy as I describe for Wild Ticker.

Wretch: make sure you utilize that the wretch can climb stuff (A) and leap through the barriers (RB). I've found that this is best on Wave 1 as well. You can use the same strategy as for the Wild Ticker, but I've found that this is doable with just normal play.

A list of each type if you want to cross them off:
Wild Ticker
Savage Drone
Giant Serapede
Savage Corpser
Savage Grenadier
Armored Kantus
Savage Boomer

You can also keep track of the ones that you need in the Stats & Awards / Achievements / Wreaking Locust Vengence. But this has to be done from the main menu.

*Note: some people are having a problem with the ticker and it not counting after playing on the same level. The solution people are having is just try on another map and the achievement will pop*
