There are a couple of ways to get this done, and unfortunately neither of them are "easy" in "not time consuming"...

2 Controller Method

The good news is you do not actually need another person to get this done, just another controller. If you set up a dummy account, you can get this, as well as all the other arcade achievements without ever touching the online portion of the game.

The area I would suggest doing this on is Mephisto's Realm, specifically the section right after you get Ghost Rider (Sepulcher). It would be in your best interest to have at least beaten Mephisto (i.e. opened up Asgard) and then go back to this area via the shield point extract option.

Once in Mephisto's Realm, you need enough points to warrant an arcade victory, but you also need to get enough points for the game to register the level as being "arcade", meaning if you speed through an area, even on arcade mode, without defeating anyone, it will not count as a victory...for anyone. You will just get a loading screen instead of the traditional level recap and points summary.

So, in order to get the bare minimum points for the game to consider the level an arcade win, all you need to do is defeat 4 enemies. Simple enough, albeit time consuming.

Given that, my method is the following:
1. Extract to Mephisto's Realm
2. Dummy account jumps off cliff
3. Defeat 4 enemies
4. Go back to the previous area in the level
5. Return to your initial extraction point, and repeat steps 2-4

The benefit of this area is there is a lot of enemies that are here, and it is not too long trek to find them or dispatch them. It will get longer as you take out enemies, but if you find yourself low on baddies to defeat, save the game, dashboard and quit the game entirely. Reload, and some of the enemies are there again to defeat. It also helps if you go and beat another section, as that seems to reset areas as well.

Technically you can do this in a few other areas in the game, but for some reason this specific one was the smoothest for me.

Online Method

If you want to get this done online, that is also possible. Once in the online option, go to create match, and change the gametype from co-op to arcade. Invite your friend and you can take turns obtaining arcade wins.

Unfortunately, this port has got the worst online connectivity I have ever seen on the One or the is even worse than the PS3...

You will see lag. You will see framerate issues. You will see horrible delays on your controls which make the already bad QTE's even more of a nightmare. You will watch as your buddy loses connection roughly every 15 mins. To be frank: it is a shitshow.

So, if you want to do this online, do so at your own risk.
