    Here's a real easy way to do it in versus by yourself and a guest. Make sure the guest is infected and you are a survivor. Kill all the AI first. Then keep killing the guest until they are a charger. Shoot the charger while he is alive in the leg with a pistol until they are down to about 4 health. Then set up the charger to charge, then stand behind the charger with your melee weapon of choice. Pull both right triggers at the same time and you should get it. Hope I helped everyone.

    UPDATE: try this on THE PARISH - THE BRIDGE just keep jumping off the bridge untill you get the charger.. and then follow procedure above^^..(just dont let the bridge down)
    Credit goes to - VETTE BOM NL (thanks).

    XmaniaXMethod on the Bridge - Parrish, works perfect. No need to clear your cache. Just kill the AI in the safe room. Down them all at the same time. While the AI is bleeding out, try to spawn the charger. Set the charger in the doorway and stand behind him with the fryingpan. Easy chievo!

    Betruger-The game mode is offline versus mode. The player getting the achievement should select a survivor and a second controller signed into a guest account should be on the infected team

    -I cleared all the zombies that were are there (you can find a pipe bomb on the stage) and then waited for the game to send a horde then i started to record the video.

    - When the game begins switch it the difficulty to Hard and grab the shotgun from the table on hard it should only take a few shots to down them, and few more to finish them off

    You can get lucky and try this in the campaign. If you are looking to go this route, keep these things in mind.
    Any melee weapon will do.
    The charger spawns on every level so there is no specific place that is best for this.
    If he is coming straight at you, you will have a very hard time doing this, so when you see him start to charge, swing out to the side and try to melee him.
    One hit may not do it, so most times you may not get this even if you manage to hit him while he is charging, but if you have AI or partner controlled teamates, they can put a round or two in him before you hit him.
    If your going to soften him up, best to use an uzi or pistol, only a few bullets each will be enough to make a melee fatal.

    If you wanna make this really easy on yourself, go into versus with one friend, kill all your AI teamates, have your friend continue to spawn and be killed until he is the Charger. Have your friend aim his charge slightly to the side of you and melee him as he runs past. Have him aim at you so his targeting reticle is slightly past you so he is close enough for you to strike.

    QuarantaneI actually managed to hit a charger while he was charging but it wasn't fatal, I was so disappointed in that.

    Nice guide, positive vote.

    Aura of HeroismThanks dude. That seems to be the problem most people have, I actually now recommend people just fire up a chainsaw and have a charger run past in versus. Works bette b/c you dont actually have to be moving. lol
