On wave 1 you should be able to down a stranded if they're on their own, if not then get someone else to down one for you to attack, takes 1 or 2 hits once they're down.

Play with 1 other person, have them distract the person while you come up behind. Wold also be easier if you have only 1 of them left.

I get quite a few wild ticker kills. Best way ive found is to go for the ones on troikas/turrets and nibble at their legs while they shoot other things.

Also not sure if its on purpose but up close, the turrets seem to shoot over the wild tickers rather than at them. So as i said, go for the turrets the heroes are mounted on.

Good luck

Only other advice I can think of is just play a lot of games as wild ticker and go for a stranded as soon as one of your team mates down them. Should be easy enough to boost this with someone though.

The Wild Ticker doesn't do much damage on its own, the best way to get a kill with it is to have someone else down a stranded and then kill him with the wild ticker. That's how I did it.

its kinda cheating but just set up a private lobby and activate another controller...with he second one take all the guys out and leave the last one waiting to be revived...then with your main controller use a wild ticker to take them down!! BINGO achievement unlocked!!

If any of the humans have a boomsheild they always seem more interested in pointing it at the bigger locust and ignore wild tickers or wreches attacking them from behind.

You could also eat a tagged grenade and blow yourself up like a normal ticker.
I just played and got it without trying with a bunch of friends, this was on insane as well.

A trick I just tried that worked is to play on Casual, spawn as a Savage Drone, down a human, and stay close to him. By the time the other humans down and kill you (it takes forever on Casual difficulty), the downed human will almost have bled out. Now spawn as a Wild Ticker, and if you're lucky, the human will bleed out after you've spawned, and even though you downed it in your other life as a Savage Drone, you will get the credit for a Wild Ticker kill.

You do need a bit of luck to make this work, but it only took me a handful of minutes using this method.

just load up a private match on casual and play the checkout map. Wave 1 only has 5 stranded and they are spread out and ridiculously easy to sneak up on and just bite em a couple times.

Worked like a charm. I downed everyone and was so low on health I just danced around on spikes til I died and respawned and got 5 wild ticker kills

It's pretty straightforward to get if you hop in a Standard online game; just let others charge in first and get the attention of the humans, then whack away at them. Wild Ticker melee swing does half damage to units, so it takes 4 attacks to down and another 2 to kill (on Normal).

Wink This is exactly how I did this.

Step 1: Turn two controllers on and log in
Step 2: Go to Beast Mode on casual
Step 3: Use the account you don't care to get the achievement at the moment and eliminate 4 of the stranded and shoot the fifth where he/she needs to be revived
Step 4: Get the controller that is logged in the profile with the achievement you want select wild ticker go up to the stranded person that is crawling and hit him/her twice it wont notify you saying you unlocked it but it will b the first one in your achievements.

Red face What He Said

You should be able to just kill a downed stranded if an ally downs them for you.

Because as far as i know, it is almost impossible to eat a grenade, because the AI never throw grenades. They just plant them inside of their holdout location.

What Idiots.
