Mission 1: Ram 50 Grunts with Warthogs

This achievement can be tricky. Do the mission on Heroic, ram the units and retreat, let the ability recharge and repeat. You must kill the enemy before the AI do. When you get another Warthog, use that instead of Forge as it wont kill the enemy as easily and give you more grunts to ram.

Activating the following skulls will also help:

- Rebel Sympathizer
- Catch
- Sugar Cookies
- Emperor

you gotta raise the dificulty, and just scout through with 1 warthog (not forge's). also turning on skulls will help.

This was a particularly annoying one, had to raise the difficulty to heroic and leave left Forge behind. Lost the mission as a whole, but got the achievement.

I still can not seem to get it. This is the only thing keeping me from the 100% completion.

if people are still struggling to get this, do what i did:

when i got to Alpha base, i destroyed the shield generator and then pulled right back. groups of grunts came running over to guard the entrance. so it is a case of ram and run until you get the achieve.

if you rush in, the Shortswords kill em all with a carpet bomb.

worked for me just now

I used Forge for taking out large groups of enemies since I noticed his ram was better.

To get the first skull you have to kill the groups of grunts before the neutral mairines do. When you get to the second group of marines you have to rescue, ram the group of grunts in the middle of the platforms right away.

this is very frustrating, must of taken me 5 retries on that first level. the trick is to make sure you splat those grunts BEFORE the A.I marines get the kills (the guys you are saving, before you control them). after you ram a couple, run back and wait for the ability to recharge.

when you obtain marines leave them behind! they will slow down the hogs, thus giving those A.I marines more time to steal your shit. use 1 or two hogs, then let the ability recharge while splattering grunts..

hope this helped, because i know this achv was pissing me off

I didn't call all vehicles I just used one warthog and left the rest of them behind. I watched a video on you tube of how other people got it and it actually worked well. You race in use your ram ability and hit a few then turn around as fast as you can and wait to regain the ram ability and do it over and over again til you get it. The harder the level the more grunts there is. Hope that helps :)

#10 probably gave the best advice, make sure you don't rush in after you take down the shield otherwise grunts will get carpet bombed. Do it on Heroic. Use one Warthog at a time (preferably not the hero). Keep control of your warthog (don't just click Y on a target, steer him around the sandbags and leave a little distance to get a good running start.) Pull back asap after a charge so you don't turret down the targets.

The name of this achievement is so true!

Just to confirm, that i did this on Heroic with all good skulls on that make the game easier. Then just sent one warthog at a time at grunts making sure that all others are back. When they get a bit beaten down, then use your one time Regeneration (D-Pad UP) and continue. At the end i noticed that the grunts wouldn't come up to the door, so i sent all my warthogs ramming into the large pile of grunts at different locations and Bleep Bloop! Did it on my second go.

Watch Rooster Teeth's video on this. I nailed it around my 100th Grunt.

So glitched, I must have got 60 or so and no achievement, also RoosterTeeth can suck my dick.

Glitched, I killed over 100 grunts, the majority of which were by ramming, so definitely over 50, and no achievement.
