Aspis is Athena's shield which she uses when you use her Action Skill. The shield absorbs damage from opponents and can be thrown at enemies releasing the absorbed damage in a explosion.
This only counts kills made using the shield itself despite the "Action Hero" challenge in the Badass Ranks section counting any kills you make while the skill is active . (Apparently this isn't true)

If you still don't have it in the late game and want to grind it put skill points into the Phalanx skill tree (Left, Green One) its capstone ability makes your shield ricochet into multiple enemies increasing the chances of you killing multiple enemies with a single use.

As the description of this achievement states, you must kill 100 enemies with Athena's Aspis, the shield she uses for her action skill. However, the game does not have a way for you to track direct Aspis kills. The "Action Hero" challenge tracks *all* kills made while Athena is using her Action Skill, but may not count kills made by "firing off" the Aspis when the skill ends. This achievement, on the other hand, *only* counts the kills made by the detonation of the Aspis caused by ending the skill.

Quick-n-easy Step-by-step Guide:

1) Create an Athena character.

2) Play through the into until you are allowed to start free-roaming on the moon.

3) Get Athena to level 3, so her Action Skill is available. If you gain any further levels, spend your points on the Phalanx tree/Invictus skill, which will increase the damage your Aspis does when it explodes.

4) Run around until you find a high concentration of kragons. Kill one of them to make them angry, but leave as many kragon pebbles alive as possible.

5) Activate your Action skill cn_LB. While it is up, it will absorb damage from frontal enemy hits. This will increase the damage you do when firing off the Aspis.

6) Either let your Action Skill run out of time or press cn_LB when it's almost done, to ensure that you have stored up sufficient damage from enemy attacks to kill your target.

7) The moment you have ended the Action Skill, your Aspis shield will immediately shoot off towards the enemy you have targeted. Hopefully, this is a kragon pebble in the middle of a group of other kragon pebbles, so it will kill several with one explosion.

8) Repeat this process until you have killed off everything in the zone, then save the game and exit. Re-enter the game to have a fresh batch of kragon pebbles to pop with your Aspis explosions.

*** When you use your action skill, remember that *only* the final explosion of the Aspis shield counts towards gaining this achievement. ***

Using this method, it took me about 3-5 hours of grinding to get the achievement. (I took a lot of breaks, since grinding is kinda boring.) My Athena was level 8 by the time I was done, and I haven't played her since.

Good luck, and have fun!
