    After completing my 2 playthroughs of the game and doing the challenges, I'm still grinding this achievement. I'm using Chapter 1, Level 5 Train Wreck. I have a maxed out group but I am using Yang because he's simply the best for this.
    I'm getting 80-100 kills each time. Play on casual, and try to not worry about the helicopter at the end. Waves of enemies come periodically and I would slice and dice through them and throw knives at the snipers, then cycle through other characters to keep them from firing on the helicopter, and wait on the next wave. I'm working on it as I write this and hope to have it soon.

    sirbradenwalkerYea any of the chapter 1 levels are really good. The enemies take less hits to kill than in the later chapters. Got 200 on chapter 1-4 I think it was.

    not as daunting as one might think. Just select yang and play the very first level of the game over and over. I just kept mashing the B button, killing most enemies with two hits. easy 200-220 kills per go at it.

    Played alot of the other levels to see if i could exceed that amount of kills and really didn't come close. Not sure if signature kills count so only use them if low on health as your health is restored any time you execute one.

    Also of note if your squad dies you don't lose any of the kills you've gained up to the point of your deaths so if you wanted you could get the 2000 all in one run .Probably faster just to play through and restart.

    DaeryoonDefinitely the first level with Yang. Just make sure to hit melee only and can tell how many melee kills you have gotten. FYI - Even if you continue, they still count the total and the achievements pops on the 2000th kill, not at the end of the level.

    Another way you can grind this achievement if you have extra controllers, is to start up Chapter 4 Mission 4 which is the same place to grind out your killstreak achievement and after you have taken out the 2 tanks, do not place the charge in the middle and at that point take over the other characters with your other controllers. This way you are not having your kills taken from you by the AI and they keep spawning so you don't have to go anywhere. The achievement will pop as soon as you hit the 2000 total melee kills and if you want to know how many you have already done, there is a spot on your character info on the bottom and there is a number in a blood splatter......that is your total kills. I hope if you have the extra controllers that you will find this alot easier to do and probably get your kill total up quicker.
