    Not hard but it is easiest at the first chapters of the game. Like everyone says.. blow one leg away. In the case of the legless ones, shoot one of its arms away, then go in and stomp them to death.

    If you get hit or killed too much (like me) use stasis when on ground, then stomp away... This works on higher difficulties (I did it on round 1 Hard)

    Try NOT to do this on a slope or ramp and try to get this achievement on the first chapters (1 to 3 preferably) as stasis is not as important and there are some convenient stasis stations around.

    What should be noted about the melee attack is that it is awful. You can spend forever sitting there stomping one enemy and they will continue to crawl after you, so you need to find small and/or exceptionally weak enemies to work on this achievement.

    The easiest enemies to kill with melee attacks are those small pods that sprout the single tentacle, because they are among the few enemies that die from one melee hit. On my second playthrough, I had a ton of stasis packs and health packs saved up and I simply used stasis on, and stomped, thirty of them at the beginning of Chapter 5.

    In the Medical Imaging Bay (where the yellow tube taking an MRI of a corpse is) there will be one of those annoying, screaming guys that shoot out the aforementioned pods. Without stasis it takes impeccable timing to stomp the pods without making them blow up, but adding stasis to the mix, it becomes simple to kill it easily and move onto the next while risking none of your precious health.

    I obtained this achievement in the 2nd chapter of the game. Basically, all i did was shoot an enemy with stasis when ever i was confronted by one, and then punched them a few times using the RT button, and they died. It should only take around 3 punches to kill a Necromorph if they are slowed down by stasis.

    Also shooting them with stasis first will help towards the 'Freeze' achievement; which is to use stasis on 50 different enemies.
