UPDATE: With this game becoming more broken each update, this achievement is very hard to pull off with the ATVs in normal gameplay. Your best bet is to find a friend in Shadow War and boost the achievement.

This of course has to be done in some form of PVP in the game because you have to roadkill 25 human players for this achievement. Either playing Capture in competitive matchmaking or queuing up for for a Shadow War needs to be done because they are the only modes with vehicles.

Personally I found Shadow War the fastest way to acquire this achievement. Spawn at a point that's close to an enemy team capture point. Press UP on the D-pad (just in case, you don't know for some reason) and drive around until you flatten 25 other players. I got about 3-5 road kills per match sometimes because Shadow War seems to end fairly quick. Just keep at it and capture points along the way for another achievement (50 captures).

Hitting someone at full speed while boosting should be enough to kill someone, but there have been several times I got most but not all of an enemies health down. It's safe to drive around the corner before turning around and going for another ram because you are pretty exposed while on the Quad and you can be killed pretty quickly. Try for surprise kills such as boosting into someone running toward a capture point or giving a sniper a 4-wheeled rectal exam (wouldn't you normally be the one with the scope? /rimshot).

It will take several matches (unless you are really good or lucky) to get the 25 kills, but the achievement does not seem to take very long at all and can be a good bit of fun flying through a base and getting a double splatter!

There is another vehicle in matchmaking called the Cerberus. It spawns at your base in Capture and Hold matches and in Shadow War. It is a large 3-seater truck and it's size makes good people pancakes if you can catch it when it spawns. There are not many of them during matches so grab it as soon as everything starts to get your hands on it. (Thanks to Felix Pie for pointing that out)
