You will need an enemy Olog captain in the army menu with the Gang of Ologs in their Bonuses tab. You can use a worm to find intel on captains, or shun an Olog captain follower to turn them against you. You can even use loot box cards to summon the follower you need if necessary.

Now, you'll want to mark the Olog and find them in the game. Approach him or enter the mission and check to see if he has his gang of Ologs nearby. Even with this bonus, it is not guaranteed. If there is a nearby Olog, you can begin.

The goal here is to get the Olog Captain to almost no health without killing them. You'll need to have them under 5%, but the lower the better. Once the captain is low on health, get close to an Olog, headshot them with an Elf-Shot to daze them and immediately mount them. Once on top, ride the Olog and steer him into the captain while shanking him. If done correctly, the mounted Olog will do enough damage to kill the captain, gaining the achievement.

If you fail to kill him and there are no remaining Ologs or yo're scared that something else might kill him, dominate him and shame him to save him for later and also bring his level down making your next attempt even easier. Repeat until necessary.

Previous solutions did not help, even tried for hours… So got mine. :) This WAS my last achievement. I finished the game, I am on the max level 60, but you can use the method earlier, just at the end, it is very easy with this. The achievement requires a captain, but NOT enemy. This is important. dance

In short: Mount an olog, while one of your follower captain bleed out, so dies.

1. You must resurrect a captain - Y on dead follower in ARMY screen, level doesn’t matter. Important to resurrect, because the undead Captain can not betrayal, if attack him. Make him bodyguard.

2. Change your bow to a low one. So if you missed the shot you can try immediately, because don’t make much damage and/or fire/poison effect which avoid to jump/ride the Olog. I used a level 18 Legendary.

3. Go to Gorogoth Fortress – maybe other fortresses good as well or somewhere you can find an Olog. In the fortress no one will attcak you (IF THE FORTRESS IS YOURS!), so easier. Find a chained Olog, there are many (red icons on the small map, left bottom). Tip: kill your followers near it, if want (skill tree bottom right skill „Destroy followers” to explode heads), so they won’t attack the olog upon release and won’t disturb You to aim/jump on it.

4. Summon the bodyguard and hit until bleeding (won’t betrayal :) ). The bleeding time is 60 secs. The „Ride on the Olog” is 10 secs (+ release and aim time). So when less than a quarter left of the bleeding (~10 secs the best, so you have time for 2nd shot if 1st missed/can not jump on Olog), release the Olog (RB next to him), aim, shoot his head with a fully charged arrow and hit RB to mount the olog. For this, you MUST stand near him! If you are mount the olog, don’t have to go anywhere and don’t have to be near the Bleeding Bodyguard, because he will die by all means, and if one of your followers bleed out the system will shows you, even you are on the other side of the world. :) So just wait for the achievement. Achievement pop. headspin Got it my second try! (On first try my 62 arrow made fire effect and the olog pushed away, so can not get on him)

If somehow you missed it, just start over, the undead can be ressurrect over and over again for free. I recommend to try this just later in the game or at the end.

Here's the method I found easiest. I decided to try this method after attempting Sodernaut's solution. The problem I found with the location he picked was that there was only two Ologs to use and often I would aggro enemies from nearby.

I briefly remembered a spot behind the Gorgoroth Keep that always had Ologs tied up. The spot is pictured below:

On my attempt there were 4 enemy Ologs being held prisoner by my orc army. I killed my allied orcs off before summoning in and subsequently betraying my bodyguard. I found from my many attempts that using a Olog Captain was the easiest way to dodge around attacks and stay alive while trying to slowly take their health down. Using this spot I had plenty of time since there were no interruptions from other ads. Let me know if this works for you!

A few helpful notes:
1) You must have the ability active "Summon Bodyguard" under the story skill upgrade tree
2) Using an Olog captain makes it easy to release the Olog prisoners as needed since you can use the cn_B counter option and use the stun time to cut their chains.
3) If you find yourself dangerously low on health you can dominate the captain you're trying to kill and choose the cn_B option to fight to the death. This will allow you to regain health and stay in the fight.
4) If you haven't conquered the Gorgoroth fort yet this method will still work. The only difference is it will be your Ologs that are held prisoner and Sauron's bodyguards watching over them.
