This actually needs to be done from further than your maximum reach. You need to launch the tongue whilst at max range, at a survivor running away from you (Whilst you're still, say the max range is 90FT)

This is very easy to get legit if you creep up behind single players as they're running in one direction. Try to single out lone survivors that run forward to get more points, or stragglers at the back of the pack. It's also worth trying to get this when others on your team are attacking, causing the survivors to be pre-occupied.

If you want to get this quickly it can be done in splitscreen.
Start No Mercy with two controllers and get to the first safehouse with the SECOND controller (the one you don't want the achievement on). Go inside the safehouse so that the AI follows you in, but don't close the door on yourself. Then go back up to the street and stand at one end.

Then with your first controller, press X to warp to the survivors, spawn somewhere, and get your AFK character in your sights. Back up until the point where your reticle stops being red.

Now, press shoot and move the second controller slightly away simultaneously, or slightly staggered. Your survivor should move away enough to make it 100FT.

The achievement pops when you let go of the survivor (when you're shot or when he's killed)
