    Others can chime in with their experiences, but it didn't seem like simply freezing enemies and then dealing massive damage via regular attacks to shatter was doing the trick, at least with any regularity. I ended up using the Seismic Blast to get this done.

    As with other solutions, an easy way to get this is Skirmish 1v1 a normal AI. (bblcreator8790 suggests multiple legendary AIs—if you're a competent enough player to make sure you aren't overrun, more enemies and thus more units will speed things up.)

    Set cooldowns to max and turn on advantageous skulls (Emperor, etc.) Set starting resources to max and fog of war off. When the match starts, immediately capture all other bases, setting up turrets and economy at each, and then pump out a few offensive units to keep the enemy contained while you build Nightingales and Frostravens from your initial upgraded base.

    Once you've got a ball of these support units, just kill enemies until you have Seismic Blast (the 6 o'clock position on the leader power ring.) Now, just park your units by the enemy base, freeze up units, and bomb them with Seismic Blast to finish them off. It took me less than 20 minutes to this achievement.

    MathGuy42If I understand correctly, a balance adjustment will soon nerf some freezing methods and the Seismic Blast. This solution should still work, but might take a bit longer. I just wanted others to know in case they wonder why it's taking longer for them.

    Ninja ScrollSpecialist01’s solution is wonderful! You should update the main solution to what he suggested. At least add to it and credit him. What am amazing fast way to avoid the grind.

    Mrs x TomahawkYou actually don’t need to kill them, just hitting them with Seismic Blast while they are frozen is enough.

    This achievement happened much faster than I expected! I was able to get it after about 5 minutes not long after getting "Freeze". I used a Stronghold's match, spammed Cryo Troopers, and spamming Serena's leader powers.

    That included reading and using Serena's units for the first time, exploring her leader powers for the first time, etc, so it could probably be done super fast if you know what you're doing!

    Just start a Stronghold's match with Fog of War turned off, and helpful skulls on(in particular, Emperor Skull for power recharge times!)
    Choose an easy or medium AI(I chose Cutter on Easy)
    Capture all the Strongholds, then on the Stronghold closest to the enemy, build 3 barracks, and spam cryo troopers! Don't forget to put a global rally point closer to the enemy base with cn_RS
    The Cryo Troops will freeze 50 troops in no time, and whenever there's a large crowd frozen, use Seismic Blast to get credit for "Insult Upon Injury". Spam Serena's other Cryo abilities for hopefully more kills.

    You'll get a LOT of infantry spammed at you in the first phase of the Stronghold match(3 minutes?), so if you don't get 20 kills by the time the first phase is over and you don't want to deal with freezing more powerful units(I did it with more powerful enemy units), just start another Stronghold and do the same thing, and you'll easily get your 20 that way too against easy infantry.

    Very easy, far easier than I was expecting!!

    You can cheese it with destroying buildings on Easy Skirmish, No Fog of War, 9999 Resources from the start.

    Yes, buildings count as units for this achievement.

    Just purchase the Cryo Bomb and Seismic Blast abilities, upgrade them to the max and use the bomb on enemy base, followed by immediate Seismic Blast. Wait for the AI to rebuild buildings, rinse and repeat.

    Peaches 518This is the best way, IMO. I stumbled across it myself and was going to post it until I saw it was already here. Very fast, very fool-proof. It only takes a few minutes, no need to worry about what the enemy is doing or hoping a bunch of infantry will bunch up.
