Craftsman Achievement

Can anyone help me get this achievement, I'm playing on Humane and just about everything dies in 3 hits, does the Difficulty matter for the creatures to stay alive long enough. Does anyone have any tips where I can get this. Thanks

It can be done on Humane, as that's how I got it

Use a sharp weapon, like a knife or machete. Try and take off the two arms first. Once both are gone, aim for the head and swing down at it. If using a knife, try stabbing the head, this caused it to explode most of the time for me.

Try to refrain from swinging wildly at it, as that will just cause more damage and kill it before you want to.

I got it by accident. Using a ice blade (saw?), I cut both arms off and the swiped sideways (L to R) and cut the head off. Achievement popped right away. Did this on Humane on Act 3.

Thanks to Gackt for the awesome sig!

Ice Saw is most definitely the best Weapon to do this.. it cut's of a limb 90% of the Time on the first hit so you don't do to much Damage on your Enemy... No Mercy is alot easier but with the Ice Saw it can also be done on Humane! It just takes a few tries so if you don't get this during ACT 3 on Human do it on No Mercy later instead it's alot easier on No Mercy cause the Enemies have more Life. I'm pretty sure on No Mercy the Weapon doesn't really matter so Machete on No Mercy during Act 1 should also work.... but as i said on HUMANE Difficulty use the Ice Saw during ACT 3.

You can't cut off Legs.. you need to cut of both Arms and the Head afterwards.. if done correctly your Enemy should walk around without a Head and Arms a bit before he/she Dies.. if your Enemy Dies from your decapitation you're doing to much Damage.. that happens 90% of the Time on Humane Difficulty so use the Ice Saw or try on No Mercy.
