You can obtain this achievement in Mission 1 of the Trouble With Clones DLC, 'Weird Science'.

As you progress through the mission, you will arrive at a Technically Legal. Firstly, you need to interrogate the target inside. Shortly after this, the building will be ambushed by various police and swat teams, some of which are holding shields.

As the achievement description states, you must defeat 15 enemies using only melee attacks. As such, hold B and select melee (up). Now defeat as many enemies as possible with melee attacks. Holding LB and pressing RT will perform a special takedown. This also counts towards the achievement. An achievement counter will show your progression for the achievement.

If for some reason you do not reach 15 melee kills, you can either restart the mission or come back to it after completing the DLC. After completing the DLC, load up any save for the option to replay the missions again via the Cell Phone.

Note: The achievement is much easier if you have purchased many of the upgrades via the Upgrades menu, especially those that reduce (or eliminate) damage from gunfire.

- SirLugash mentions in the comments that you can also use the Apoca-Fist to melee kill enemies.
- Apoca-Fist is unlocked as a reward for completing 'Murderbrawl XIII' and sparing Killbane.

- jphil03 has mentioned that you can also use the Penetrator for the achievement.
- Penetrator is unlocked as a reward for completing the mission 'Return To Steelport'.

- Hirsute Dave has commented saying that The Woodsman (chainsaw) also counts towards the achievement.
- The Woodsman can be purchased from Friendly Fire once you have completed 'Murderbrawl XIII'.
