    You'll get this over time as you're playing multiplayer, blitz, and skirmish(Update, apparently Skirmish counts again! Skirmish does NOT count, thanks to multiple reporters for verifying!), but if you want to boost it you just need to use these units against enemy infantry.
    Also, if you're boosting with a friend in a private match, Strongholds where you leave one Stronghold uncaptured goes into Sudden Death and you have lots of time to do these achievements for specific kills. smile

    Also note, sometimes if any other type of unit happens to hit your target, then it seems to cancel out the 'kill' for the purposes of this achievement. Sometimes it seems like you have to get the kill 100% with the anti-infantry unit.

    UNSC:
    any Hellbringers
    Sniper

    ***any Warthog--this unit even though showing definitely as being good against infantry, doesn't COUNT as anti-infantry according to Adny.

    Additional UNSC units that 'might' count for this achievement because they are good against infantry:
    *** Spoiler - click to reveal ***


    Banished:
    Elite Rangers
    Suicide Grunts

    ***any Chopper -- same as above, this unit probably does NOT count
    ***any Marauder -- same as above, this unit probably does NOT count

    Shadow 00 FoxOne of the big things about this too is how the rock/paper/scissors design goes, it seemed to fit that vehicles would count.

    count023I tried this in skirmish and it wouldn't count to the achievement trackers. Seems like it's MP/Blitz only now.

    TPB MaestroCould you boost this with a friend in a private match and just sit outside his base while he keeps making infantry? Same with the vehicles and air units.

    Shadow 00 FoxIt should definitely work boosting with a friend--that's how I got a lot of mine. Strongholds would be the best choice for that.

    TPB MaestroYep I just boosted all of them. Works perfect, and with the game going into sudden death if you each have 3 strongholds like you point out in your other guide. smile

    AcE ViCTiMiZERCan confirm this doesn't count in Skirmish (against the AI), despite the achievement description saying that it does.

    ScreamAimFire94I've just unlocked this achievement today in Skirmish mode so it appears it's working again.

    GorelomSeems they may have fixed whatever issue skirmish mode was having. I'm getting progress in a skirmish against ai.

    Hurricane MattI just got this playing in Skirmish and these are the tips I have to share. Playing with the UNSC, the only kills I could get to count were kills with Sniper untis that were fully upgraded (active camo and better ammo upgrades). I couldn't get hellbringer kills to count at all so don't bother. Also, the best AI to face is YapYap as he prefers making infantry to other units, at least on easy.
