Got pretty lucky with this, but with the way I've been playing I think I was due for some luck. Played Wake Island for the first time (had to specifically select it in Server Browser since it never seemed to come up in my rotation) and was sort of exploring the island when I happened upon an unused skidloader at the airfield. I hopped on & after a couple miscues was able to get it on the road & build up a little speed. Drove up behind a friendly tank that a couple enemy players were trying to take out & figured I'd try to help him out while also helping myself out since they were distracted by the tank.

Well, the tank apparently got taken out by some plane or chopper as I was driving past, so I figured I was toast since there was now nothing to distract the two enemy soldiers. But no turning back at this point-- full speed ahead (going downhill certainly helped). While firing wildly at me they just happened to line up perfectly that I took both of them out in one run. Their buddy came by & started firing at me, so I tried the same thing with him, but the situation was reversed and I had to try to go uphill with that thing. Decided to ditch it & was promptly whacked, since I always seem to dismount vehicles with my back to the enemy.

So my time in the skidloader is 42 seconds with two kills, giving me 2.85 kills per minute with it :P

Icing on the top-- directly after that I finally found a good attack helo pilot who helped me get that elusive air vehicle ribbon, thus unlocking the Vehicle Warfare achievement. I think I had a grand total of 1 air kill to my name prior to that match, and he kept us alive long enough for me to get 6.

Seriously, just go bananas with mines at Flag B on Wake Island and just sit in the loader and hide. I didn't even move it. Flag B on that map is easily the most mine kills I've gotten in general and it only took 2 minutes of waiting. Definitely luck based but people drive the DPVs all over the place and the road is narrow there.

I HATE this stupid achievement! I've spent the last hour on Wake Island, laying mines around B and sitting in the loader waiting for someone to roll over them...nothing!

Either I can't get to the loader as I get spawned into a game with only 25 tickets left, or no-one goes near my mines or I try and run someone over only to miss them by a foot and then the gun me down.

Tearing my f-ing hair out with this. My K/D ratio over the last hour is about -12.

I hear you, when I was going for that achievement I could not get it if my life depended on it. I gave it a rest for a couple of days, then I joined a random game and got it with in the first few minutes. Sometimes taking a break is your best bet.

Guys another way to get this is to have a mate laser designating the enemy's attack helicopter.

Fire your Javelin and then get back in the skid loader before the Javelin hits the target. I got a nice double kill doing that

Beats waiting for someone to run over your mines.

Got this last night.
We dominated the game so I thought lets drive the skidloader.
Finally spotted a running enemy, almost got him from the back when a chopper of my team tried to kill him.
Luckely he missed and I drove over him when he was running into cover

"The Fathergamer Podcast SERVER" has 24/7 Wake Island Conquest Assault so if you're trying to be like a boss and kill someone with a skid loader, you'll have plenty of opportunities as well.

If you're lucky I might even help you get it when the server is low pop.

I was in a game of conquest and spawned on the boat, so i immediately made my way over to it. I drove around for a bit and hid, untill I saw B was being captured. So me, wanting my achievement, went to find the person. I found him behind the crane, and he'd peak from side to side.I give him credit because he stood his ground and tried to shoot me out of it, but he missed his vital shot. I won

Why is my Skid-Loader broken??. It seems every time I find one and start looking around while driving in it seems concrete mixed with mud and mixed with Glue my little skidder finds the only land mine on the map LOL. I sure wish this thing would float ...

I agree with most people that this is purely luck-based. For me, what happened was some guy was trying to be all sneaky and take out a tank, while standing directly in front of the skidloader. So, I pegged it to the loader, got in and hit the gas. Next thing I knew, a roadkill and cheevo popped up. I've never felt so good about getting such a strange kill, and being rewarded for it!

The Skidloader is a vehicle of opportunity. I usually will hop in it when there is complete chaos around the objective that it spawns at. When everyone is focused on the tank or AA gun around the objective hop in and find someone shooting rockets at armor. Or you can use at as a personal vehicle to get from one place to another and then someone will present themselves as an easy kill. I know, I will usually be in the Skidloader when I play Wake Island, or an F-35 that thing has become my favorite Jet.

Finally! I gave up on this back in January but decided to have a go at it again today as I've been focussing on clearing up some of the achievements the last week or so.

Tried using mines, taking stuff out with the javelin etc with no joy. Finally just got really lucky and an enemy jeep stopped just in front of me near the hangars on Wake Island. Two guys jumped out, both started shooting at me and stood in a line....ended up getting a double roadkill!

Now I can put the Skid Loader on the list of things I'm not going to touch ever again in BF3, alongside Squad Deathmatch and the EOD bot!

I managed to get this on a sniper not paying attention. People tend to lay mines around the loader for some reason.
