    Wall riding and shooting doesn't work too well on a controller, so here's how I got this without tormenting myself with that.

    You want to play on maps that have the potential for environmental kills, meaning you can knock people off the roof/cliff/whatever to their deaths. The round in Lijiang Tower where the capture point is surrounded by fall zones is the map I got it on, and might be the best choice here, but this could work elsewhere.

    The goal is to use Lúcio's Soundwave ability to push an enemy off the map to their death, and immediately after you push them, jump on any wall and hold 'A' to wall ride. You don't have to be wall riding while you shoot them, but you have to be wall riding when the enemy reaches that 'kill point' in their fall. It usually takes a second or two for the enemy to die after being pushed off, so you should have enough time to get a wall ride going.

    So, I would wait with my team in the capture point on Lijiang Tower for enemies to come down the narrow side entrance, then I would peek through the door and Soundwave an enemy off the roof, and immediately jump on a wall to wall ride.

    You'll have to do this three times in one life for the achievement to unlock (or less if you knock off multiple enemies at once). So it's still not really an easy achievement, but this is how I was able to get it done. Good luck!

    elisiusjrHello friend, I tried to add a sollution but since I play on PS4, I'm not able to do so.... can you add this information to your post so it will help other friends?

    I tried to achieve this by doing what most people do, push the other players out and then jump to the wall, but since you need to wait for maps like Ilios and Lijiang, I was having a really bad time.

    So, I asked a friend to play Mei and we fight together the whole fight, waiting for an alone enemy. When we find one, Mei start to freeze the enemy whille Lucio damage to almost kill him, by the time Mei complete the freeze proccess, the enemy will be almost down, so Lucio just need to wallride and finish him.

    It worked for me the first time I tried this method. I hope it helps other friends here.

    PS: Sorry for the tipos, English is not my first language.

    Bunny BreakfastThis achievement is by far easiest in Control. I was actually able to get it fairly easily playing on Nepal. If you are targeting this achievement specifically, I would suggest leaving any game that isn't Control.

    JordanTheBigBoy is right, you want to get enviroment kills then jump on the nearest wall asap.

    However, I found it easier to do this on Watchpoint: Gibraltar, than Lijiang tower. You're more likely to die on King of the hill maps in my experience.
    On Gibraltar you can do it at the cliffside near the beginning, or at the end.

    Here's a video of how I got it.

    All of the solutions above work but getting the map, Lucio and enemies where you need them is frustrating and comes down to alot of luck. But if you change Lucio's jump to LB and switch to A button, you now have a much easier time wall riding and shooting. Also with the Year of the Rooster update you can enable backwards wall ride. This opens up many more opportunities to get this achievement. I ended up getting this with 1 environmental and 2 actual wall ride kills. Hope this helps anyone still struggling to do this without boosting.
