Here is a detailed guide on how to get this achievement as there are a few that can give you problems or you have no idea how to do them. So hopefully you can help make this guide. If you need to find one in particular press Ctrl + F and search for it because there are a lot of these.

Act 3, Chapter 1, The #2 Newsbot is behind the house on the pier. When you get close to the house a few Creeps will spawn inside. Instead of going inside look down the left and a creep should be looking around the corner of the house. Run up to him, he should flee and as you turn the corner you'll see the Newsbot (you should now be at the back of the house). The Creep should simply run to the corner. So now just kick the Newsbot once or twice over to him then shoot it thus hopefully killing him and unlocking the Skillshot.
If the Newsbot is not around the back then he may actually be inside the house. So just run in there (should be 3 Creeps at least inside) and shoot the Newsbot to kill one or them. You may have to get inside and actually kick it in a Creeps direction but it shouldn't be to hard as they may run up to you for melee attacks, so just blow it up next to you if this happens, or run away, turn around fast and blast it.
