    Press Y to take out your melee weapon( I know for the Scout/Sniper class it is a sword, not sure on the others.) Then find a unsuspecting close range enemy, and press RT with your sword out. It will be a one hit kill.

    People keep complaining they get shot down when going for this, so I have two ways:

    1: Spawn on a flag. Just camp in a concrete building beside the flag. When an enemy goes to capture the flag, simply run a them and press Y to melee them. One hit kill.

    2: If you are in a tank, and some annoying enemy is running around your tank (noobs like to do this), press B to exit the tank then just press Y to melee them. They won't expect it.

    SarsarsWhen an enemy is in an airstrike tower, camp a few feet from the door while waiting for them to finish (unless the airsrike lands on your position) and when they reappear quickly press the melee button before they can react.

    Cheap, but it gets the achievement and, with some risk, is really easy.

    PiMDxDumb ass me, being a noob first day I was playing, I was standing outside the door waiting for someone to come out so I could have my turn at air raid. Damn Jap slashed me through when he came out.

    freedoms stainPersonally I get most melee kills by catching guys manning mounted guns or sneaky snipers hiding out in bunkers.

    Mt Suribachi on Iwo-Jima is good for this. A lot of guys will sit in the bunker closest to the Fishing Village and try to cover it, if you get around behind the Mount you can take the path up the back and sneak in fairly easily. Lets face it, a lot of people who play this game have no clue what "defence" actually is, and Suribachi is often left vulnerable to attackers making their way up that rear path. Give that a shot.

    Guadacanal tends to attract snipers in their swarms, there are a lot of high vantage points peole like to try and snipe from, and a couple of raised bunkers on either side of the map that give good sniper coverage, it's not hard to find one to sneak up on. Just don't try it on a game I'm playing in, people don't tend to try that strategy for long when I'm around, I actively "discourage" it if you catch my drift :D

    Melee Man - 20G (Original Achievement)

    Difficulty: Easy

    Estimated Period of Time: Short
    --------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    To get this Achievement, you must kill an enemy with your melee weapon. Pressing the Y button will pull out your melee weapon (Sword or Wrench) and pressing it again will make you swing it. Just get up close to an enemy and hit them for this.

    If you are having trouble I suggest hiding in buildings and waiting for enemies to walk by.
