You only need 1 melee kill.

When you are running on the ground and press cn_B to melee, your agent will dash forward.

Melee hits are not 1-hit kills. Damage the enemy first with your primary weapon (I like the Conqueror Type-E). Once the enemy is at half health or below, try to melee them. The lunge range is quite short and it can be difficult to hit players even when they're close to you.

Here's a clip of me chasing someone. They didn't know where I was and I was able to melee them from behind:

Using your ultimate (cn_LB+cn_RB) will make you lunge further and do more damage with your melee too, so if you're struggling to get this, try collecting the orange orbs then using the ultimate with your melee.

You can also ground pound by pressing cn_B while airborne, but this method is much harder. I don't know how much damage the ground pound does because I've never successfully defeated anyone with it even when landing right next to them.
