Start up a private match on Hab Center Arena 1. Play as Assault with either the Chainsword or Powersword combined with these perks:

Power Swordsman's Zeal/Swordsman's Zeal

You can now weigh into groups of enemies and hopefully not have any trouble staying alive. The Zeal perk should allow you to rebuild health faster than you loose it and the Impenetrable should take the bite out of the Orcs with guns. Bare in mind that large groups of Orcs with guns can still whittle away your health enough to kill you if you aren't careful. You should be able to get partway through area 2 without much trouble. This will net you around 600-900 kills a playthrough.

Now the main reason you want to do this instead of killing scores of Traitor Guardsman is simple. You can actually track your kills in the leaderboards now. Combine this with your other leaderboard stats and figure about 2000 kills for a campaign run-through and you have a good idea of your progress.

Another bonus is that you can do this with friends which makes this less boring. You won't get as many kills though.

You have to end the match after you die for the kills to count on the leaderboard. If you hit retry it wipes the kill count and you start back at zero. The kills STILL count towards the achievement. You just won't be able to track them.
