This one's time consuming.

This can be done in either player or ranked matches, and in any mode. Doesn't matter which. Obviously the easiest way is to boost this. Just get a friend and set up a player match with you and your buddy. One good mode would be to do CTF with 1 capture limit, and no time limit, so you can end it whenever you want, but also go as long as you need. Camp near the flag of the guy who's dieing (he'll respawn close to the flag). If you have more people, it helps. Just put whoever's going for the achievement on a team by himself, and the other guys on the other team. Rotate out as neeeded.

I found the best way to get dismemberments was to use the CQC.729 shotgun. Stand to the left of the guy and aim (hold LT) at between the shoulder and the elbow on the left arm and fire away. You should see the arm fly off. That's 1 dismemberment. Repeat 249 more times. Some people say the sniper rifles work better, some recommend assault rifles like the SAW. Experiment a bit and just go with whatever works for you.

One thing I noticed was that when I was doing it is that I couldn't no matter how hard I tried get a dismemberment on the guy who was the host. So probably a good idea to take turns and have whoever's doing the killing be the host.

It is largely believed that headshots do *NOT* count as dismemberments. I couldn' say for sure, but given that it took a LONG time from when I unlocked the 100 headshot achievement to when I got Daddy Longlegs that it's probable that headshots do in fact NOT count.

One more thing: do this one *AFTER* you've unlocked all other MP achievements except the hosting (Hostest With The Mostest) and suicides (Stop Hittin' Yourself!) achievements as you'll likely get a few dismemberments while doing the others. After you get Daddy Longlegs, then go read my tip for Hostest with the Mostest & Stop Hittin Yourself to finish those two off.
