    Really simple way to do this against bots.

    Go to Versus > Private > King Of The Hill

    Select:

    Round Score Limit: 240
    Number Of Bots: Fill
    Bot Difficulty: Casual
    Bleed Out Time: 60

    Select "Start Game" and then in the map selection lobby, first Y to switch over to the Locust team then ensure you have the Savage Hunter selected as your MP character. Pick any map (I choose Cove but don't think it matters) and start the game. Now the important part - Do NOT pick up frags, inks or incendiaries. You can Bag & Tag with a smoke grenade to get this achievement. Also you never run out of smoke grenades, they keep respawning in your inventory, meaning you don't have to go searching for more grenades.

    All you do now is down the bots with your lancer (or gun of choice), pick them up as a meatshield by pressing X and then press up on the D-Pad to Bag & Tag. Rinse and repeat 20 times. I also found that your teams bots are often too dumb to finish off opponents, so I had bots crawling around ready for picking up. I did this on KOTH, mainly so I knew where the hotspots would be, but I assume it would work on other game modes.

    Using this method, I managed to get the achievement in about 5 minutes. Good luck!

    EDIT

    Below is a video demonstrating this method, thanks to Reabo.

    AcE ViCTiMiZER I stumbled upon this solution by accident, but just to clarify: the reason why smoke grenades replenish is because you get the grenade(s) that the bot is carrying when you meatshield them. Doesn't matter if they have them equiped or not, as long as they haven't used their smoke, you'll get an extra grenade. I think it says so too on the bottom left of the screen when you meatshield someone (Smoke x 1). However, you'll not get the smoke grenades when you have any other kind of grenade in your grenade slot, unless you have e.g frags and the bot happens to have frags too. Hope this clears it up. :)
