    I was able to get this on Sanhok by jumping out of the plane immediately and heading straight down. There's almost always a handful of players who do this. The key is to rush and find the closest weapon, preferably anything that isn't a melee weapon, but beggars can't be choosers so use your fists if you have to.

    When you're dropping try and pay attention to where the others land. As soon as you find your weapon and ammo reload and head straight towards them. If you're lucky, you'll catch them off guard while they're looting and get an easy kill. However in my experience, most people who drop off the plane immediately are looking for a fight so be prepared and move quick.

    AngloSaxtonthis worked perfectly. Here is a clip of me doing exactly as you described and getting the first kill.

    Reborn InsanityNice! I wasn't aware you could change the color of the blood either. I'm gonna do that now.

    There is a really easy way to do this achievement. Get a friend to play with you, but both start a solo game, pressing the join button together as close as possible. You should both then be in the same game. You can verify by looking at the map while in the pregame lobby bit and see if the plane is going the same direction for both of you. Then simply both bail from the plane as soon as you can and head straight down.

    One of you then simply punches the other to death and the achievement should pop immediately I believe. If not it should pop when the entire round is over.

    PLOP DjMessiahNot sure why this was downvoted as I used the exact same method last night and it worked first time. Achievement unlocked straight away.

    With the recent update, low player count, and lots of bots, I managed to do this without even realizing I had the first kill.

    Solo

    Here's why I think this is "easier" now: I rode the plane all the way to the end and was about halfway to the ground before I got back to my game and started playing. Most games have numerous kills already by this point.
    I landed, ran into a few huts, grabbed weapons, not rushing at all. I hear a player approaching, obvious bot, killed them, then the achievement popped. I never even noticed the player count hadn't even dropped by that point. My only assumption is that bots don't kill each other too quickly early on in the game.
