craig3999's solution was a great start but I figured I'd go into more specifics with how I did this. Where I differ from his solution is that I did this on Casual and it took me 14 rounds (3 and a half matches) to get 10 ribbons. I was surprised that my bots died so quickly on Casual but it worked extremely well. Hardcore will work but it is considerably more difficult to survive 5 on 1.

If you want to do this solo, select either Latin America or Australia as your region (Latin America has given me better luck with creating a game with only me in it). If you can get Dodgeball on the map Forge, this will take less than an hour because the same map and game type you played will always be available to vote for again after every match.

As soon as you spawn, run to where the Boomshot is and pick it up (so the other team doesn't end your run with 1 shot), replacing your shotgun and then run back near your spawn and wait while in cover. Most of the time your team will run out and get themselves killed. Once they are dead and you are the only one alive, the enemy will start to rush you. Use the Boomshot to kill 2 or 3 of them and then pull your rifle of choice out for any other bots still alive coming at you.

N3OANG3L's solution states that you need to kill all remaining bots. I found that the key to this ribbon is that you just have to STAY ALIVE. You can kill 1 bot, spawn a teammate in and let them kill the rest and you will still get this ribbon as long as you don't die and your team wins the round (tested multiple times).

I hope this helps! This is designed to make this a lot easier, as I was rushing in to try and kill all 5 bots worrying that my team would spawn in and kill the bots, leading to death and thus voiding the ribbon.

To summarize:

1. Latin America or Australia Region
2. AI co-op on Casual
3. Dodgeball on Forge map (others will work but this map was extremely easy for me)
4. Run to Boomshot and pick it up (or heavy weapon if on another map)
5. Wait until you're the last one alive
6. Kill some bots (use your heavy)
7. Not necessary to kill them all yourself
8. STAY ALIVE until your team has won the round
9. Select same map and repeat
