This can be done on any map and does not require any DLC to be purchased.
Basically get knocked down to the ground so that you're crawling once and then escape via an Exit Gate. (Escape via a hatch does not count.)

Ideally what you'll want to do during the match is avoid getting downed at all as if you get downed a second time then you'll forfeit any progress towards this for that match.
Once you get the five generators and the gate open, what you want to do is position yourself an inch within the invisible wall that you have to pass through to exit the game then wait for the killer to down you and hopefully when you fall you'll fall through the invisible wall and be safe. This can be hard to get right and you may screw up a couple times thus giving the killer the chance to pick you up and hook you but you should have no problem getting it most of the time.
If you ever do get downed in the match, play super defensively for the rest of the game.

Perks I recommend:
Probably the best perk period. Lets you know the killer is coming from the direction your camera is facing. (This is especially good right now that everyone is playing The Pig as their crouch speed is so slow that you'll be able to detect and get completely out of an area before they even show up.)
This will hide your trail quicker and help you juke killers better.
-Calm Spirit (Jake perk)
You won't alert crows. Helps when trying to juke or generally to stay undetected.
-Self-Care (Claudette perk)
You can heal yourself without a medkit so you'll avoid going down.

David King and Meg have helpful perks but I feel the above ones are much better. Laurie has the Decisive Strike perk which will let you escape the killers grab one time but it's more likely that they'll just down you a second time than you get away, so you're better off with just getting hooked and a teammate maybe saving you.
Figure out what works best for your playstyle.

One thing to remember is that you can get hit once to be put in to the wounded/limping state and then heal yourself as many times as you want.
I believe if a killer grabs you while vaulting through a window or over an object will count as a down but I was not able to confirm that.
After I escaped I always opened up the guide menu and went to the achievements to see that I got the 4% progress to the achievement tracker. The escape should count as long as it gets right to the end game score screen. One time my game crashed right as I got to this screen but the progress showed up a second before the crash. If your game crashes at any time before then you probably won't get progress tracked for that match.
If you're solely going for this achievement and you get downed a second time, you can always pause and just quit out of the match. You'll lose rank pips and any bloodpoints you would have earned that match but you'll save time.
