Oh, no you don't

Kill a Ram using tackle skill.   

Sam B has this skill under the Combat tree. The lowest level you can get this at is level 5. The Ram enemy does not appear until Act 2. They are the bigger enemies in straight jackets. Your best bet against the Ram will be to dodge his initial attack and let him run into a building or something, then whack away at him until he's very low on health. From there, use a few tackles to finish him off. The skill doesn't do too much damage though, and you'll still have to hit him in the weak spot in the back so it can take quite a few hits. Upgrade this skill to level 3 for best results.

I think the black guy has the tackle skill.

Yeah you have to play as Sam B, the tank character. Tackle is in his combat skill tree.

Super easy, use the Sam B character. Upgrade to the full tackle ability, I was at level 15 when I did that. The first Ram you encounter at the church, let him charge especially through the fire towards you and when his back is turned beat the bejesus out of him. When he has only a little health left, start to tackle him after he's done charging at you.

^ its easier to do it without the Ram on fire, as you can miss your chance. rams are literally everywhere after the church. Beat it down to close to no health and just constantly tackle it after it runs into a wall (for more damage)

Can't get this. My tackle skill is maxed and I spent about twenty minutes tackling one of those douchebags and when I finally, finally, managed to do it with a smidgen of my own health left it didn't pop. He wasn't on fire. I specifically asked my co-op teammate not to hit him.

I am not trying to tackle on those things again, it's bullshit.

It's easier then it seems to be honest. As previously said, attack and dodge until it's only got a very minor amount of health left.

Allow it to charge at you and dodge to the side then sprint directly at it's back, keep doing this until it dies.

Need a partner to do some achievements with.
Achievements I need:
-One is all I need.
-Light my fire.
-10 Heads are better than 1.
-Oh no you don't.

Basically needing some one to create a Level 1 character so I am able
to kill the zombies in 1 blow etc.

In Return I will also do the same or help with any other achievements.

Add me: Alex l 4 l.

Way i did this.

Went to new game with Sam B and chose chapter 5 (Must have got to chapter 5 with Sam B already)

Then you get to redo all your stats, and put them on the middle 1 until you have all 3 on ram, then just go up the stairs to church beat him till little health and then keep sprinting at him until he dies.

Easily done in 5minutes

This is the best method for doing this, make sure your tackle ablility in your combat tree is at level two minimum as this allows you to knock enemy down including Rams. Then once you get to City of Moresby head down to the bottom right corner of the map, you will find a ram on his own between two builders, dodge him and when he is roaring and struggling in his straight jacket hit the exposed patch on his back until his life is at minimum, then all you have to do is tackle him after each charge and you should crack this chievo in no time.

This can be done alone. You can hit and shoot the ram for a while and kill it whit a tackle so you don't have to tackle it all the time.

Yeah, I'm pretty sure this is the only class specific achievement. Not too bad though, it's not that deep into his skill tree.

Got it on my first Ram with Sam B. As for those saying they don't have Sam B... you need to play through the first Act with all four to get one of the one of the chivos, so it's not a big deal. Especially since you have a shot at it on your next quest.

Have your tackle at level 2 or maxed. Try and get them charging and missing between two walls if possible. You can get one or two charges on them before they turn around if you back up a tiny bit after the first and run again. But definitely beat them down until they have little health left.

I got this one on the first try, just hit the first ram at the church until health mostly gone then tackle him with Sam B. I thought it would be more difficult.

I simply shot the Ram with different guns till he barely had any life left and used tackle skill to finish him off, and Bleep Bloop Achievement Unlocked :)
