    I did this on the pup Skaggs as they were the weakest enemy that didn't shoot at me. To do this go find some pups and kill all but one, then weaken the last one by either shooting him or using melee's. Once he is as weak as you can get him without actually killing him, simply jump up and land on him, you'll notice they take a small amount of damage it may take a few jumps but once he dies it will pop up. I was standing on a flat surface when I did this, so you dont have to jump off any rocks or anything like that to kill them.

    GrimaceTheGreyYou don't jump over them, you have to jump and land on them. It only does a little damage when you land on them so you will want to whittle their health down first.

    WincelowFinally got this after jumping on a level 34 Hulking Elder Skag about 300-400 times to take off the final 20% of its health. It was like being in The Old Man & The Sea.

    A tip for anyone else that finds themselves in the same situation. Stand with your back to the sun/moon so that your shadow and the skag's shadow are in front of you. The skag's shadow gives you quite a good marker as to roughly where you need to jump, i.e. jump slightly backwards to get as much of the skag's shadow in view as possible. That way you always have something to aim at, even when you can't see it.

    Went ahead and made a quick video for this achievement since the other two appear to have been removed. Pretty simple achievement all you have to do is kill an enemy by jumping on it's head. The easiest way is to have a low level charter or just start a new charter and pretty much do what Grimace221 did in his solution just kill one of the puppy skags outside of Fyrestone's gate.

    This can be done with a high level character as well as a low. I just completed this with a level 27. I too went to fyrestone and killed all but one skag. The I proceded to jump on him. Took about 10 jumps to kill it. They do very little damage so you wont have to worry about health.
