I believe I found a solution. I can't 100% confirm yet, but if this happens, pause the game when the game loads, go offline, and it will kick you off ironman. After unpausing and repausing the game, it will give you the option to restart chapter. DO IT! After chapter restarts, exit to main menu. After that, go back online, and click CONTINUE on your campaign save. It will load from chapter start with ironman ON. I don't know if the achievement will pop yet, but will update when I find out.
Would anyone know if this was patched with the July update? When I disconnect from the internet, I get no indication that Ironman is disabled, nor do I get an option to restart the chapter. Any input would be awesome, thanks.

This method saved me last night. Same snatcher glitch, but going offline and then restarting the chapter worked for me.

I must be missing a step. We are glitched in an "at the doorstep" checkpoint in our ironman run-through. After we kill everything, we cannot get a checkpoint or chainsaw through the webbing to get to the next area.

So I tried the solution above:

1) I load the checkpoint
2) Sign out of my gamertag

At this point, something goes wrong. I have about a second after I log out I get booted from the game, and get sent back to the startup screen with the picture of JD where you have to press A to start. It won't let me past this point unless I log back in.

Update: It worked, with one change. Instead of signing in and out of my account, I had to disconnect my xbox from the internet and then re-connect it. All the other steps were the same.

Thanks for posting the solution.

Ok, I've sorted out why I was having trouble with this: my gold subscription had run out. Even playing locally, the game gives different options after a disconnect so you must have gold to make this work!

I can confirm this solution works. The campaign progress updated initially and I just finished up today and the achievement popped!
Thank you so much o8oCHAINSAWo8o your solution worked an absolute treat. I was not looking forward to having to skip past the Snatcher and having to play through up to that point a second time. Replaying 3.6 was so much better.

I have linked your recommendation on one of the guides on this site so others may benefit from you too.

then the good samaritan thing to do is you give him credit for his solution and then say as an add-on to above solution vice saying the same thing with one change.
You really have no idea what you are talking about do you, it's not the same thing at all. kestrel musa3rd said you can carry on and then replay everything up to that point and still get the achievement. That is the exact same amount of effort as just starting again so it is not a solution, although it does provide useful information about manipulating offline saves.

Thank you o8oCHAINSAWo8o. Even though I did my research before starting my Ironman run, and exited A3C6 mid-way then started it back up, I still couldn't kill the Snatcher or make it drop the player it snatched.

This time round I was able to make the Snatcher drop the person it was carrying :)

I stucked at the same point. the snatcher don't go down from the upper point, he jump down only if one get down by its tail attack. the glitch happen on pc and console and going offline on console is useless, nothing happen and there are no reload level option.
