    Easy ! But many ppls thinks wrong and they try to make this achievement by double team with this unit and using his special bladehenge attack ( this big sword from the sky ;) They are wrong! Make your rock crusher in stage, double team with it and DRIVE OVER 25 of your enemies ( you'll probably have to drive them over like 3 times to kill them) Best way is to have your friend on, make a custom match, he'll choose drowning doom and make maaaany zombies, go there and ram them :D

    Octobot SuperThis achievement can be obtained by yourself against the AI, but it's kinda difficult. When I got this, the achievement popped right as my Crusher exploded!

    If you want to try and get this by yourself against the AI, it can be difficult, but it's still humanly possible. Here's what I did:

    Play against another Ironheade (Most Gentle AI, of course) on Feeding Area. It could probably work on other maps, but I used Feeding Area. Cap all the geysers except what the AI started with and defend them until you can upgrade your stage all the way and build a Rock Crusher.

    Double team with it and drive it over to the AI stage area. If he's built up an army there, use the Bladehenge Assault to make them not alive anymore. When he summons more troops (likely Headbangers), drive in and start running them over. It should take 2 or 3 crushings to kill them. If they start ganging up on you, drive down a road leading away from the stage and get some distance so you can turn around and point the business end of your Rock Crusher at them.

    The AI avatar will be your biggest problem. I don't know if avatar kills count towards the achievement, but it's a good idea to keep running him over anyway to keep him out of your hair for a few seconds. If you have subtitles turned on, look for one of his death quotes so you know when to turn your focus towards the troops.

    With this method, I got the achievement before my Rock Crusher had even taken enough damage to catch fire.

    M0KKANI played against the drowning doom rather than Ironheade. The gravediggers come in packs of 6, giving you more targets and the avatar has less damaging solos and her unblockable has a delay that makes it harder to hit a moving target. Good solution, using a level with only 1 base gyser makes the pacing about right.

    Agent CHI just picked Ironheade to avoid the possibility of Brides, since they damage you if you damage them. :P

    MustaPastoriI tried this method against Ironheade, but I always got my Rock Crusher destroyed by the enemy avatar. Then I tried the same settings against the Drowning Dead and got this and Ringleader on the first try on the same match. So if you struggle against Ironheade, switch to Drowning Doom. Both are viable tactics.

    I found this when I was in a boosting session with someone who went off to do something and then forgot he was in a boosting session. Thanks.

    Sitting at his stage faced with an avatar that was doing nothing and not spawning enemies for me to kill, I decided to run over and kill his avatar with the Rock Crusher.

    I have no idea if this solution is universal but, hey, it's worth a go.
