You must kill the tank without assistance. You will need 3 players with you who will not shoot it or use other weapons against it. Bots will attack it and ruin your chance for the achievement.

Your best shot is do it on easy with other players and I recommend that your loadout be a molotov cocktail to sap it's HP and the hunting rifle, as it does the most damage per shot (shotgun requires you to be too close and reloads too slow).

I found it most helpful when the Tank focused on another player allowing me to get in close with the auto-shotgun I had.

The attached video has a guide on how to do it in single player (but it's always more fun with freinds ;) ).

Another strategy to use is play Death Toll level 5 on easy and get to the end. Have everyone (all human players) get on the rock at the far end of the beach. When the tank comes you throw a cocktail at it and shoot it until it dies. If it tries to throw a rock at you have everyone shoot the rock, not the tank.
