    A shield bash is easy enough to do. Just hold down RT until you get a circle around you then let go near an enemy.

    The easiest place I’ve seen to grind this out quickly is right near the beginning. After talking to the Thongolith Researcher, you’ll see a bunch of Stoopid Chickens in a small area right behind him, you can shield bash these chumps to your hearts content and they won’t fight back. If you can manage to stick 2 or 3 in a corner then this will come much faster.

    You can track your progress towards this by going into the leaderboards and going to “The Bashing Best” and changing the filter to my score.

    It’ll take a while but you’ll get your thousand bashes pretty easily. It took me around half an hour to get the 1000.

    To do a Shield Bash, just hold RT and then release it after a moment. You will thrust out your shield and knock back enemies, or even reflect bullets if you time it right.

    The description is misleading, it should actually say "Shield Bash 1000 enemies". If you hit 3 enemies at once, it counts as 3 enemies instead of just 1 Shield Bash. Therefore you just need to get a group of melee enemies to attack you and keep Shield Bashing them away.

    This should take no more than 20-30 minutes if you do it all at once, but I'd recommend spacing it out so you don't get bored. Note that you must hit an enemy, you can't just sit in a corner and Shield Bash nothing.

    You can check your progress under Shield Bashes in the "Stats Book", it's the yellow book in your Inventory.

    In addition to the above guides, another good place to go to grind this achievement is the first Outhouse in Rainbow's End (Rainbow's End Outhouse..surprisingly). There are at least 20 chickens here and although they are harder to force into a corner, you can sometimes hit far more at once (seven was my best!). I managed to get 700 bashes in 20 minutes here.
