That was Close!

Kill an enemy with 1 health remaining in DOOM 3, RoE, or Lost Mission  

The best way to do this would be to let a weaker enemy (such as a zombie or Z-Sec) get your health down until you reach 1 HP, then kill them before they can kill you. On Recruit, pistol Z-Secs only take 1 HP each shot at close range. You could even try hurting yourself with barrels or grenades to aid in the process.

There are 2 easy ways to get this achievement:one is being the obvious one,by letting an enemy hit you untill you are at 1 hp(altough it's a bit risky if there is a swarm of monsters),the other one is by being patient untill you get the Soul Cube:charge it up,then search for a lonely enemy(prefferably an Imp),let him attack you untill you reach 1 health,then unleash the Soul Cube to instantly kill him AND regenrate all your health.

Got this randomly, during my veteran playthrough. I got surprised by a z-sec zombie in Alpha 4, but managed to take him out just in time.

I got this while also attempting the 2 imps with one shotgun blast achievement. If you can do some quick math in your head you can figure out how an imp will drop you down to 1 health before you kill it.

I believe (on normal) a fireball was 7 or so damage and him clawing you was 5 damage. Just put 4-5 pistol rounds in him and let him drop you down to 1 hp before you blast him with your shotgun.

Started up Lost Mission and got to where the first armor is (up the stairs through the first door). The guy who immediately climbs the rail does 2 damage melee and 3 damage fireball. I let him whittle my health down as I did some damage back with the handgun. Got to 1 health and killed him. Probably too much work, but not bad for just getting the game.

If you're attempting a nightmare playthrough, it'll be hard to miss this.
