Get the dog
If you plan on going for the other online achievements, just join the BEANS BULLETS BANDAGES boosting sessions. Also to pull your knife out hit Y, if you immediately hit RT it double knifes. I couldn't stand doing this one(I did this by just running around and knifing) because you will knife people, and they won't die because the mechanics aren't so great in this game. Also the connection has to do with how your knife will hit them, on your screen you will knife them, but on theirs you don't. Sad I know.. If you plan on getting BEANS BULLETS BANDAGES, you will get the achievement while playing.
In the end I got about 150 Unique dog tags, with 5k knife kills overall. (you will get more than 5k if you start right away.
