EDIT: Yes, this achievement is finally obtainable thanks to a patch released on (or just before) January 18, 2011!

To get this achievement, you must be playing Versus as the Infected, and incapacitate a Survivor who has left the rising bridge to sacrifice themselves. Set this up on The Sacrifice: Chapter 3: Port Finale. Only one person per team is necessary. To be safe, use the Local Server method by mashing "A" repeatedly on the Start Game option, as I'm not sure the new patch fixed the problem with getting achievements on dedicated servers. WARNING: This may freeze your Xbox once or twice, simply restart the console and try again, there's no long-term damage.

Once the game is under way, the Survivor has to activate all 3 generators. After activating each one, wait until the Infected player becomes a Tank, then kill him before moving on to the next one. This will prevent you from having to fight an AI controlled Tank. Once the last Tank is killed, the Survivor will gain access to the bridge. Hop on and activate the switch to raise the bridge. There is no need to wait for the Infected to spawn as a Hunter, as they will become a Tank anyways. In fact, it is preferable if they DON'T spawn at all, as then the AI will not take over the Special Infected.

Once the bridge starts rising, both the Survivor and the Infected (who should be a Tank) should head to the alley to the left of the bridge (when facing towards it from the road). There the Survivor can crouch in the corner and hold off any Common Infected (use a pipe bomb if you have one) until the Tank arrives. Quickly incap the Survivor for your 50G achievement, and probably, relief at having finally finished The Sacrifice for Left 4 Dead. (Just make sure the Tank hurries, as there are AI controlled Tanks spawned at the same time.)
