    You can actually get this off what I think is the first alien you encounter. In the first mission when you go to cut down Keyes an alien attacks you and you fend it off by tapping X. If you are alone that is, usually in co-op someone else would've killed it already. So play Solo Recruit to make it easier. Just keep fending the alien off with X until you get the timing right. It seems to have a pattern of attack where it will just run at you attacking a few times before it tries to pounce. Keep your eyes and ears open because it looks like it's getting ready to pounce and hisses as it pounces. So after the initial quicktime event keep on your toes and use melee even to fend off it's regular attacks, just hitting once and backing up a bit to stop its attack. It may take a few tries but it's easy to get those few tries easily.

    WeisGuy9This is how I got it as well. I actually got it when you go to cut down Keyes and the alien first jumps out of the wall.

    I made a video showing exactly what a lurker looks like when it pounces at you in case some of the guides were unclear. So hopefully the video helps you! I got my achievement on The Raven Mission.

    This one depends a little on your luck.

    I found it highly unlikely to get on a normal walkthrough, so it's best, if you really grind for it. It can be done on every level. I got it on "Fall of the Sulaco". After you short-circuited the doof of the controll-room, there is a section where you get attacked by two groups of three Xenos. Just wait till one of the Xenos comes charging at you and start your melee-Attack. If it's not working, just reload the checkpoint and retry. I got it on the third run...
