I got this playing as the female elf character Andriel. I was playing in Chapter 2 Part 1 where you fight the Barrow Wight in the cemetery. I found the tombs was a better spot as there was no archers or ranged attackers to break your streak. The tombs are at the end of the first level you leave the ranger camp. You will know you are in the tombs because a side quest will trigger to clear the tombs.

Note: Other locations that work well are the challenge maps and in Mirkwood, the forest with all the spiders.

A hit streak did not start for me until I got a critical hit. To get a critical hit use your regular melee (X button) until the enemy has a yellow triangle above their head, then use the heavy melee (Y button). Once I had the streak started I backed away and used my ranged attack (LT and RT). You get about 5 attacks in a row and then need to wait for the ranged attack to regenerate (takes only a few seconds). Keep an eye on your magic meter (blue bar under your health) and use a power potion if you run low (left on the D-pad). Keep your distance so you don't take any damage (if you take damage you will reset the streak). If you get surrounded by enemies you can roll away to avoid taking damage (B button). The timer on keeping the streak going is a little quick so don't get too far away and make sure there is another enemy to continue to attack in case you kill the first enemy. If you are using the dwarf or ranger keep an eye on how many arrows you have as you can run out.

I was playing on normal difficulty when I did this. Any questions/changes I should make, comment below please. Good luck!

Edit: If you use dual wielding then your hit streak counter goes up by 2 at a time. Credit to Das Kuhnen

Edit 2: It has been noted that ranged attack for the dwarf and ranger do not add to the counter. Only the elf has this ability. Credit to Sindarin Eagle.
