After one of the players I did a multiplayer mission, with contacted me about this achievement, I though time to write a guide to this game, having 100% it myself.

This was a rather annoying achievement as it's not clear the window you have to take out an enemy.

At first I thought it had to be done during the pivot itself, but instead it has to be done after the turn has completed, the game gives you a few seconds after the turn to kill an enemy. I took about 3 - 8 seconds to blow up an enemy and it unlocked. I did this on a mech unit, but it can be unlock on just standard infantry, thank to Osmo76 for confirming this.

To perform a pivot turn, you need to activate the high speed lever in the cockpit, then almost straight after, turn your mech, if done correctly you will sharply spin you unit 180 degrees almost on the spot. Practice this move first before trying the achievement, I found it didn't always seem to pull off correctly at first. As if you don't correctly do the pivot you won't get the achievement and you don't get long to perform the pivot as high speed mode quickly runs out.

I did this on Waterside Warehouse, as if you walk down the far right straight from the start there is a lightly armoured enemy just behind the wooden planks / boxes in front of you to the right. However Urban Warrior is a far easier mission to do it on and there are so many infantry troops running around the map at the start there is a ton of them straight ahead. (Just watch out for the mines and shoot the old cars to get rid of them.)

It took me a number of tries 5-10 to unlock this achievement.
