This can be done split screen with 2 controllers.

Load up Mission 2 - Battle For Sulaco in campaign co-op.

A couple of minutes in, get to the part almost immediately after you open the huge door with the power-loader.

You will need to head right at the bottom of the first room with the eggs. Send player 2 just inside the corridor - when he gets to the end a face-hugger will jump out at him. Using a shotgun, just shoot him in the face, killing the face-hugger. Don't worry, player 2 will be immune to a shotgun in the face.

You need to be quick or else player 2 will die. In which case reload the checkpoint and try again...easy :)

An alternative solution which you can do solo.

While playing through the campaign you can get this without much hassle.

Playing through Mission 09 - Hope In Hadley's, you will be tasked with making your way to Operations and saving Marines along the way. I personally obtained this achievement by killing an Alien that pounced on top of an AI controlled Marine. The exact Marine is fighting an Alien and you have to cut the door open to get to him. It's not hard to miss, it's right next to the first dog tag of the mission.
